John Smith’s company has 8 hourly employees. Five of those employees are on the road most of the time, usually more than 500 miles from headquarters. The other three employees are based at headquarters.
John purchases an annual subscription to TimePilot Central 5. He's charged $360 for the year ($200 for the management software and 8 employee licenses at $20 each), which also gives him unlimited tech support. Three of the five remote employees download the TimePilot Mobile app onto their smartphones; another downloads the mobile app onto their iPad and the fifth downloads it onto their Android tablet. The five will use the apps to clock in and out each day. Each of the three employees at headquarters has their own computer, so TimePilot PC is loaded onto each PC so they can clock in at their desks. (Both the app and TimePilot PC are free.)
Each day, John checks his employees' hours with the the TimePilot Central 5 management software, which even allows him to see with just a click of his mouse where his remote employees were when they clocked in and out. When it's time for payroll, John uses TimePilot Central 5 to check his employees' hours, make any corrections and run a report for payroll.
Mary Jones has a landscaping company with 36 employees during her peak seasons. Mary’s clients are many miles apart, so she decided to go with TimePilot's Cloud-based system to track her employees' hours. Her cousin's landscaping company recently had its computers hacked, so the Cloud version's off-site database makes sense to her. She also likes the product's free support.
She decided on a monthly plan, because she can vary the number of employee licenses she buys each month: fewer during the off-season and more during the busy seasons. In season, she'll pay $92 per month ($20 for the management software and $2 for each of the 36 employees). In the off-season, Mary reduces her workforce to 18 employees, so for that time she'll pay $56 per month ($20 for the management software and $36 for the 18 employees).
Her foremen carry smartphones, so she has them download the TimePilot mobile app and assigns each crew member to the appropriate foreman's phone. Everyone in a crew will be able to clock in and out using the foreman's phone. She also tells her foremen to clock in and out when they arrive at and leave a job, so her hourly customer billing is accurate. When it's time for payroll, Mary uses the TimePilot Central 5 management software to check her employees' hours, make any corrections and export the data in QuickBooks format to her payroll service.
