How to Avoid Major Payroll Hassles

Why Processing Frequency Matters for Your Time Tracking

You struggled with paper timecards for years before you finally could see beyond the trees. You had your mobile time tracking system installed, your people trained, and finally, began using this amazing new tool. And you loved it! It made life so much easier, much more so than ever before. 

But then you began to get overconfident and complacent. You started processing payroll at the very last minute. For a while things continued to go smoothly, but your company continued to grow.

As your company grows, so does your labor data. The more employees you have on a crew, the more crews you have in the field, the more records you have to manage.

Welcome to the modern age of labor time tracking. No longer are businesses tethered to paper timesheets and punch cards, endless corrections and hours of payroll processing. Now your company can access the time clock anywhere at anytime with mJobTime's mobile time tracking software.

Punch Clocks of Yesterday

With paper timesheets youcertainty is limited and ineffective; accuracy depends in large part to who's clock you're relying upon, and by trusting your team members to consistently manage their efforts. You're taking the focus off the bigger responsibility of producing for your company.Inevitably people will forget to write things down or punch in/out, leaving records incomplete and inaccurate, which leads to much larger challenges when working with billable time and cost tracking analysis.

Additionally, digital punch clockcapabilities are limited by the manufacturer's software and there are no customizations for your specific business needs. Does it work with my accounting software? How often they ever release updates? Who knows?

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.

As discussed in an earlier post, many construction companies are by default, risk averse to purchasing new software. In that post, we discussed the different types of risks these entities can be subject to. But in addition to risk, there are also other significant barriers that stand in the way of contractors looking to purchase a mobile time tracking system.
