OnTraccr Offers More than Time Tracking
Paper time cards take effort to gather for payroll and can reduce the accuracy of paychecks, not to mention leave a company behind on tracking project costs. In fact, around 15 percent of annual gross payroll cost is due to time card input errors and time theft according to OnTraccr Technologies Inc., Delta, British Columbia.
Launched earlier this year, OnTraccr is a productivity platform offering time-tracking, communication and project management tools that aims to be easy to use for construction companies of all sizes.
OnTraccr offers both a web app and a smartphone app for Android and Apple. Employees use the app to track their time, clocking in and out, taking a break, switching from one project to another as needed, reviewing and adjusting time sheets, and submitting time sheets for approval.
The user can set up geofences or GPS locations to ensure employees are where they’re supposed to be when they clock in and out. Companies can also log time manually or use OnTraccr’s shared tablet mode allowing users to clock in using the same tablet at the job site.
Management staff can use OnTraccr to monitor and track time in real time to perform budget tracking and job costing functions whenever they want. OnTraccr also offers a variety of built-in reports, including employee payroll and time sheets, budget tracking, labor productivity, productivity forecast, and project timeline and labor curve reports.
Users can filter reports by different categories, such as approval status, project, cost code and more. Report customizations can be exported, saved and shared. OnTraccr also integrates with Quickbooks and other software for automatic processing of payroll once time cards are approved.
Since its launch in February, OnTraccr has expanded its tool to enable real-time communication among your team, including photo and file sharing as well as messaging all in one place, either to individual team members, specific groups, or the entire crew. The app also offers a live feed feature that allows workers to post field notes throughout their work day to notify management of events immediately, without having to wait for a call or email.
OnTraccr also offers several tools to manage products. Its real-time job costing tool allows management to set and track budgets and automatically collect data on specific tasks during work so they can evaluate which activities cause projects to make (or lose) money.
It can also be used to build custom forms, as well as house project documents within its web and mobile apps under a permissions system so only the right people can see each document. In the future, OnTraccr aims to expand its features and grow into a more robust productivity tool.
The full version of the app is free for up to four team members. Beyond the first four users, OnTraccr has a monthly fee per additional user. Enterprise options are available for large teams.
