The blockchain is often associated with virtual currency, but there's so much more to it than that. It's already started making its way into a number of different industries, from genealogy to the film industry. It's being used by banks to both confirm and verify data, and even the government is using it to communicate sensitive information between different departments. See how it works and how the technology can be integrated for the benefit of professionals, clients, and regulatory agencies.

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.

Much has changed since we wrote the original post for this subject back in June, 2011. Smartphone sales are expected to roughly double between 2011 and 2015 as shown in the following diagram courtesy of Statista:

Statista estimates that handset penetration per capita in North America is expected to reach 104% by the end of 2015. What all this really means is that mobile technology is much more ubiquitous. The overwhelming portion of the populace has some kind of mobile device.

Combining this with the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies that have evolved in the last few years and the fact that much of the work force is younger, contractors are taking advantage of these changes to implement mobile technology in construction at a pace not previously seen. Companies that fail to do so will not remain competitive.

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?

Since the time that Apple and Google have become dominant players in technology, there has been the argument of which strategy is better – having near total control of your product or taking a “giving the keys to the car” approach.

Steve Jobs, the legendary founder and CEO of Apple was well known for his laser like focus. He first used it on the Apple I personal computer and its subsequent iterations, then on the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Job’s philosophy was that brilliance was achieved through simplicity.  He also believed that his products would be more dependable if he had complete control of their environment.

The mJobTime Difference in Mobile Time Tracking

The other day, a fairly large prospective customer asked one of our sales staff to send them an email with a brief statement as to why the prospect should choose mJobTime. In most cases, it is very hard to state the differences between you and the competition in a brief statement.  There can be many reasons why – some obvious, some not so apparent. I would like to use this post to try to detail the main differences we see between mJobTime and our competitors. 

First, the less obvious.  Call it our company culture if you will, but I think it is our philosophy for managing a software company.

mJobTime will be exhibiting at the Collaborate 2014 Viewpoint User Conference, September 22-26, 2014, in Portland, Oregon. Viewpoint Construction Software is a global provider of construction-specific software solutions and services for all aspects of construction management. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Viewpoint also has offices in the UK, Australia, and Canada.

Attendees of the Computer Guidance Customer Focus 2014 trade show in Scottsdale, AZ on July 21-22, 2014 will be in for a special treat. mJobTime Corporation, developers of construction's most advanced mobile time tracking software, will unveil an exciting new product designed to eliminate buddy punching in the field. While products currently exist that accomplish this goal, the key difference is that our new solution is completely mobile. There are no cables required or any need for an AC power source. 

Stay tuned for more developments in the near future.
