In South Africa, time and attendance (T&A) systems have been around for years to track employee attendance and working hours. With the sudden rise in remote work due to the pandemic, some employers began using clocking systems to track their employees’ work hours from afar. To tackle issues of buddy-clocking and ghost workers, many companies have switched from card-based T&A to biometric systems that require employees to clock in with biometrics.
However, for employees who work from home or spend their time on the road, ensuring they are working the full number of hours can be challenging. To solve this problem, Jarrison Systems has developed JT Clock, a mobile clocking solution for smartphones that allows employees to clock in and out via their mobile device (we support both iOS and Android platforms), with GPS location and geofencing capabilities, and for Android devices we also integrated an additional fingerprint reader to clock employee’s in and out from the team leaders device. The data is then collated in the Jarrison Time software application, providing management with accurate time & attendance information, job costing, team achievements, and photo evidence to prove the job was completed.
Our app also works offline, allowing employees to clock in and out even in areas with no network coverage, with data synchronisation occurring when connectivity is restored. Our solution can be used by solo workers (JT Clock Myself) or teams (JT Clock Team), with the ability to add new workers via the app by a supervisor and synchronise them to Jarrison Time. JT Clock offers an efficient solution for employers to track their remote workers’ time and attendance accurately.
