Mobile apps for time recording

In an ever-changing world of work, where flexibility and mobility are becoming increasingly important, mobile time recording has become an indispensable tool for many companies. Thanks to developments in technology and the availability of mobile apps, there are now a variety of ways to track time and projects in real time - no matter where you are. In this blog article, we will take a closer look at the benefits of mobile time tracking, focusing on relevant apps.

Functions & advantages of mobile apps for time recording

Mobile apps for time tracking offer various functions that make it easier for your company to accurately track the working hours of your workforce in order to ultimately draw the right conclusions. Here are some of the most important features:

Simple recording of working times

Time tracking apps allow your employees to record their working hours easily and quickly, no matter where they are. Your team can enter their working hours directly in the app or start and stop them at the touch of a button.

Location determination

A mobile app can also record the location of your employees when they record their working time. This feature can be particularly useful if you have field staff who need to record their working time in different locations.

Compliance with compulsory time recording

(Mobile) time tracking is now an important part of a successful business model and can help to reduce labour costs and increase productivity. As Recording and documentation of working time obligatory after BAG ruling are, apps offer an easy way to comply with court requirements.

You still see time recording as an "annoying evil" or "surveillance by the employer"? That does not have to be the case. After all, the obligation to record time and attendance has many advantages, especially for employees:

Improved accuracy

Using mobile apps for time tracking can improve the accuracy of time tracking. As an employee, you no longer have to record your working hours manually, which greatly reduces the likelihood of errors.

Productivity increase

Mobile apps for time tracking can also help increase your productivity, as you can record your working time directly in the app. This saves time and allows you to focus 100 per cent on your work.

Effective project management

Using mobile apps for time tracking can also make it easier to manage your projects. As a company, you can accurately track your employees' working hours and ultimately bill projects more easily and reliably.

Flexibility and mobility

As an employee, you can record your working time from anywhere as long as you have access to the app. This increases your flexibility & mobility and facilitates work in the field or in the home office, among other things.

Those who have the choice are spoilt for choice

One market, many providers - and they all want to bring their mobile time recording app to the users. But how do you find the right solution for your company? Before you choose a mobile time tracking app, you should consider a few important factors. Consider what features your company needs to accurately record and track your employees' working hours. For example, do you need a location tracking feature or integration with other apps? In addition, make sure your favoured app is suitable for the number of employees who will use it. An app that is suitable for a few employees may not scale for a large number of employees. A user-friendly app is important so that your employees can use the app easily. It is best to test the app before implementation to ensure it is easy to use.

Mobile apps for time tracking offer a simple, accurate and effective way to track and manage your employees' working hours. By using mobile apps, you can increase the productivity of your employees, easily account for projects and save time and costs. Our new ZEP app also supports you with many other interesting features.
