Employee time tracking

PocketClock/GPS software, a versatile mobile time tracking app for iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile Smartphones and Tablets, now features biometrics, equipment tracking and French support. The FaceFront Biometrics photo verification feature was designed for contractors and other remote crews. Using a smartphone or tablet’s front-facing camera lens, it snaps a photo of employees when they clock in and out—eliminating the risk of one employee clocking in for another. Bookkeepers can simply match employees’ field photos to their master photos stored in the office to verify IDs.

The new equipment tracking feature helps contractors maintain a history of where their field equipment has been used and allows them to capture pictures, notes and voice recordings from the field and send to their office. Contractors assign a piece of equipment to an employee and worksite, and the easy-to-use software tracks equipment for them in real-time with 100 percent accuracy and pinpoint GPS precision. — ExakTime, www.exaktime.com/pocketclock-gps
