Get to Know: TSheets

Time Tracking and Scheduling

TSheets is a cloud-based time tracking and scheduling app that allows your employees to clock in and out from the job site with the devices they've already got in their pockets. Accurate, electronic time data replaces paper timesheets and makes payroll and invoicing faster and less costly. TSheets also accurately tracks time and GPS points (even without cell or internet service) then automatically syncs when back in service. Many construction companies use it as a cheaper, functional alternative to geo-fencing. With a "Who's Working" feature, it's easy to see where each member of your crew is and who's working on what. TSheets also features in-app Scheduling that allows you to drag and drop shifts, assign jobs, see who's working at a glance, and send alerts to managers if employees haven't clocked in for a job or shift as scheduled.
