    Pros
    I love that I can clock in and out from anywhere and helps me keep better track of my order and what is used on the job with descriptions and photos.
    The geofencing is a good feature. I like the GPS clock in locations and the ability to have descriptions of what the guys were doing.
    The Feature we love the most is tracking the total project cost hours vs the actual. It's a great incentive for our employees to work faster and smart.
    Cons
    Busybusy is very connection-dependent, meaning that it does not work well without WIFI and it seems that tracking is not possible when there is no internet connection.
    There is no way to tell if your employee's logged in from an app or on their computer at work. When they make mistakes I have to fix them on a daily bases.
    I hate how when I clock out it still keeps me clock in sometimes and I don't relise until the next day.

    We use busy busy to track all of our employees, hourly and salary. It helps us see real cost on jobs

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    We don't have paper time cards and don't have to verify every person's time.

    Pros

    It's easy to use for our guys and that's the most important thing for being in the field. It's fast and reliable.

    Cons

    The app doesn't allow our office personnel to see the amounts to be paid in the time cards. We need the ability to see our cost per job and per employee in the field.

    Vendor response

    Hi Derek, Thank you for your feedback. We are happy you are able to see real costs in real time. You should be able to see that information on the app in the labor activity reports. Go to reports from the main menu>>project or employee activity. Please let us know if this helps, JC

    Essential for Payroll

    Reviewed a year ago

    We are not losing out on billable hours.We have a solid history for any clients (and labor force) who have questions.

    Pros

    We use busybusy to complete payroll, target project management needs, and capture billable hours

    Cons

    We actually don't access all features we could in busybusy. For our small business it, we are finding our use appropriate and essential. So we actually don't know what we are missing. WE are having trouble with our management force buying in to the concept. They feel like we are tracking them.

    Good app but needs improvement.

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    Pros -Could build labor budgets. -GPS locations. -App reminds you to clock in when you get to the job site.

    Cons

    -Time consuming to edit each employees hours each week. Our typical work week is 7am-3:30pm. If a guy clocks in at 6:45 we have to manually change it at the end of the week to 7am. Also their break time is 30 mins each day. Your default is 15 mins so we have to manually edit each week. -Can't build a labor budget based off the cost code rather you need to create a sub-projects. -Would be nice if it could sync with Procore so we don't have to manually enter labor each week. -Glitches ever so often.

    Vendor response

    Hi David, Thank you for the in depth review. We are happy you like the reminders and GPS stamps. We currently integrate with Procore. I will reach out to you directly to provide details on how our integration works. Thanks for your time, Jairo

    Easy navigation, I can explain how to use the app in less than five minutes to new employees.

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Reporting is what I mainly use the software for.

    Pros

    Overall my experience with busybusy have been successful. I personally have had zero issues when it comes to the navigation and reporting while using the application. My experience with their customer service is outstanding and they will do whatever it takes to resolve the issue immediately. The overall navigation is simple and easy to use. My eleven year old knows how to use it. The cost is low comparable to other timekeeping applications.

    Cons

    As of today the only cons that I personally have is that it currently does not integrate with our bidding software. If this could integrate it would be the perfect software for our company.

    Vendor response

    Appreciate the review! Integrations are a focus of ours as we continue to grow. We have some creative options to help you with whatever software you are using for your bidding. Please reach out to us and see if we can help! -DH

    Great app. Makes clocking in and out a breeze. Helps keep track of jobs and how profitable they are

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Great time keeping. Keeps employees honest. Helps to track jobs from the time they start to the time they end. Love it!

    Pros

    Allows you to track jobs and see how they are going in the middle of the job. Tracks our people so you can tell where they are. Allows for break time. Automatically does over time and sets up paychecks!

    Cons

    Not comparable with the new software. IOS does not have recently used jobs. Wish you could access information from other apps like Google drive.

    Vendor response

    Hi There Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm so glad you have had a good experience with the app! Integrations are our focus as we continue to grow. Great suggestion! -MMA
