About PowerTrack
Established in 2002 by POSDATA, PowerTrack quickly became a market leader for mobile and time keeping solutions for the construction trades. PowerTrack excels at tailoring the application to meet demanding requirements in the area of time keeping, material tracking, equipment tracking, daily diaries, barcode integration and the ability to easily deploy custom forms.

We recently talked to a prospective customer who was looking to purchase a mobile time tracking software application. They were looking for many of the same features and functionality that we offer, but there was one big thing that separated them from most of the prospects we talk to – they already had a mobile time clock application.

In our previous post, we began the discussion on how and why flexibility is an important component of a well-designed mobile time tracking system. Similar to humans, flexibility in a construction time clock application allows the user to enjoy better control of their system. In this post, we will explore some of the details of a flexible mobile time clock program.

Flexibility is a very, underrated quality - in just about every facet of life.

Being physically flexible allows us to continue to do our everyday activities. In sports, the better your flexibility, the more control you have over your body and the less susceptible you are to injury. As we age, we generally lose flexibility, which in turn, means we lose the ability to do some of the things we could do when we were younger. That’s why it is so important to retain as much flexibility as possible.  Staying flexible significantly reduces the chance of experiencing occasional and chronic back pain and other injuries. Increased flexibility generally reduces stress and releases tension.

So you’ve warmed to the idea of upgrading your time collection processes. You see the benefits of a mobile time tracking system and are ready to move forward.

So, what’s next? Just how do I get started?

There is definitely a process that should be implemented and followed in order to give the project the best chance to succeed. We have outlined a guideline for such a process.

We technology companies far too often see things from our own very narrow perspective.  As companies whose livelihoods depend on the ability to utilize, develop, and improve on technology, we assume that other companies share the same outlook.

And then I read a LinkedIn group post asking the question “Is the construction industry open to technological changes?

Although the responses were as expected, what surprised me was one particular answer – risk!

What is the right price to pay for a mobile time clock system? Do you have a budget? If so, how did you arrive at the budget? Was a flat dollar amount designated for the purchase price?

For some companies, a wireless time clock can be a commodity. Pick one off the shelf. It needs to track time by employee, date, and job. Just about every portable time clock system out there does that, so yes, it makes sense to go with the cheapest one.

Or does it?
