Frequently Asked Questions About The Homebase Time Clock App

What is an online employee time clock?

Small business owners looking for time clock solutions for their hourly employees can use the Homebase app for all of their attendance software and time tracking needs.

With Homebase, an employer can turn almost any device with an internet connection (such as a browser, tablet or phone) into a sophisticated time clock software system. No more expensive hardware or paper time cards. All you have to do is set up the online time clock software, track employees’ time with ease and watch the data sync seamlessly into the cloud.

How do you keep track of your employee hours?

To get started using the free Homebase Time Clock app for tablets, simply download the app from the app store onto a tablet or your POS device, sign into the Homebase app with the owner or manager’s email address and password, and then employees can clock in and out with the time clock using their personalized pin. It’s that simple!

Why use your employee time clock?

Since it’s in the cloud, an employer can track employee data, including time and attendance, in real time, meaning you can see the total hours worked of an employee from wherever you are on whatever device you’re using. It will even work offline should your internet go down — the Homebase app will track data at all times.

What is the best employee time clock?

We may be biased, but we truly believe Homebase is the best time clock out there. Get ahead of any would-be surprise issues with time clock rules and real-time notifications. Our app allows you to enforce the schedule and sends you alerts if someone hits overtime or doesn’t show up for their shift. Did an employee forget to clock in? No worries. As a manager, you can edit the hours worked right from the employee time clock.

The time clock app also keeps you compliant with break laws. Employees can update their time cards from the mobile app, and they’ll get reminders when they need to return from breaks.

You’ll also get added security — the Homebase time clock app for tablets will take a photo of your employees when they clock in and clock out, so you, as well as their managers, can be sure their attendance is accurate. The time clock app is just as secure as biometric fingerprint or facial recognition time clocks, but completely free. It’s much easier than dealing with paper time cards and a timecard calculator, or a cumbersome spreadsheet.

Another great reason to use Homebase is that it integrates with top payroll providers such as ADP, Gusto and Quickbooks, so small business owners and managers can save time and stress every week instead of wasting time on payroll.

If you need to track employee hours for remote teams that make house calls or work offsite, like caterers, you can let employees clock in via mobile time clock using the Homebase employee time clock app.

Managers can set a radius and the time clock app will use the phone’s GPS tracking to make sure your employees are in the right location when they clock in and that your employee hours tracking is accurate. You can also verify their clock-in location on the time sheet.

The best part? You can use Homebase for all of your team management needs, not just for time and attendance and time theft prevention. We also offer a top-of-the-line employee scheduling app that can be used on employees’ iPhones or any other mobile device, a hiring app to help you find the best employees, and team communication to help your staff stay in contact and up-to-date on your business.
