What is geofencing?
A geofence prevents timesheet errors and fraud.
Your payroll expenses are likely the biggest expense for your business and most vulnerable to fraud. With today’s technology, you can easily prevent payroll fraud and improve employee compliance.
By setting a geofence around all your Sites, Timesheet Mobile alerts Workers or contractors when they arrive, monitors them during the shift, and notifies managers if they leave the site while punched in.
Unfortunately, not all workers are honest and some will work harder to cheat on their time instead of just doing their job. So, we have some features allowing you to block employees from punching in/out if they are not at the Site. The app will punch them out if they turn location off on their phone and will notify managers if they turned their phone off to avoid detection.
When implementing any time tracking system the biggest challenge is going to be worker compliance. Some workers will honestly forget to punch in/out from time to time. With geofencing, the app prevents these forgetful moments with our Punch Prompt® technology and saves hours of administrator time fixing timesheets during payroll. Another challenge during implementation will be worker resistance to having their geolocation tracked. It’s important to get everyone on board and explain how the new technology will benefit the company and all workers. Here are some good tips from Paychex.
