Time tracking for janitorial and cleaning businesses

Time tracking for your janitorial or cleaning crew is really important but also can be difficult. Your crew is likely working at multiple job sites throughout the course of the day, and without a proper time tracking system you can’t tell how much time they spent at each site. This becomes a problem when you’re trying to prepare payroll and you don’t know the hours worked.

Homebase can help you simplify time tracking for your janitorial/cleaning business. Here are four ways Homebase can make janitorial time tracking much easier.

1. Leave instructions for a job with shift notes

Every cleaning job is different, and it’s important to be able to leave specific instructions for your team to make sure they’re prepared for each job. With shift notes from Homebase, you can make sure your team knows what’s expected of them when they clock in for their shift. This will allow your team to work faster when they arrive on the job site and will save you money in labor costs!

2. Get notified if your team hasn’t clocked in when scheduled

With Homebase notifications, you can receive a text when a member of your team has not checked in to the job site they are supposed to be at. Delays for your cleaning crew can add up throughout the day, and it’s important for you to know how these delays are impacting your team’s schedule.
