ExakTime introduced the JobClock Hornet, a rugged wireless time clock that automatically sends electronic time records back to the office every hour.
Hornet is housed in a weatherproof ABS plastic composite case, built to last in any weather condition – rain, snow, sleet, frost, dust, or heat. Lightweight and portable with a 30-day rechargeable battery, Hornet can easily track time anytime, anywhere.
With Hornet updating time records hourly, management can make real-time job adjustments based on 100 percent accurate, timely information.
“Contractors can do things they never could before – work on payroll throughout the week, not just at the last minute, know who’s at a jobsite, know when someone’s about to hit overtime, and so much more, all without stepping foot outside their office,” said ExakTime CEO Tony Pappas. “We’re so excited to bring this type of advanced workforce management to life.”
Hornet’s wireless transmission ends the frustration of dealing with traditional paper time cards. Supervisors or foremen no longer have to physically collect paper time cards from job sites and drive them back to the office every pay period, cutting down on added man hours and fuel costs. Hornet automatically sends time records over a highly reliable GSM network.
When using conventional paper time cards, payroll clerks typically receive illegible, fudged time records late Friday, creating a frenzy to manually enter work records on time for payroll. Hornet makes 100% accurate, up-to-the-hour time records available to the payroll department 24/7 to help with payroll planning.
JobClock Hornet, winner of the 2011 Good Design Award, requires workers to punch in and out with Keytabs that track work down to the minute, in real time. Employees cannot alter these numbers. With Hornet’s 100 percent accurate digital time records, workers are only paid for the hours they actually worked.
