LOS ANGELES-- Exaktime has introduced JobClock/EX, a portable time clock that integrates new technologies into the The JobClock System, a time and attendance system used by over 600,000 professionals in construction, landscaping, transportation and other industries.
With a JobClock/EX at each work location, employees clock in with Keytabs that they keep on their own key rings. Or, to track up to 1,000 cost codes, they can clock in with Exaktime’s FastTrakker handheld device. Every pay period, supervisors collect time records from each JobClock/EX with a BlackBerry or Windows Mobile smartphone and send the records to the office over their mobile Internet connection.
"Customers have been clamoring for this kind of JobClock," said Exaktime CEO Tony Pappas. "The combination of JobClocks with smartphones creates a near-real-time system for collecting time punches from jobsites."
JobClock/EX data collection software for smartphones offers foremen tools with a completely new set of multimedia capabilities. A supervisor can use the BlackBerry’s camera to take photos at the jobsite and can also record audio field notes. Photos and voice recordings can be combined with written field notes typed into the BlackBerry and tagged either for the work site, an employee or for a jobsite.
Time records and field notes are securely sent to the office computer from nearly any location using the smartphone’s Internet connection and Exaktime’s JobClock.NET service. After the information is transferred to the company's office computer, Exaktime TimeSummit software lets managers analyze and export work hours into the company’s accounting or payroll system, as well as review field notes.
JobClock/EX is available immediately, directly from Exaktime. A variety of smartphones and data plans are available from local cellular carriers. To learn more, call 888/ 788-8463 or visit www.exaktime.com.
