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.

Pros

Our business has improved dramatically due to schedule improvements and cost code help us see where we are successful and where we need improve to have better services for our customers.
I am grateful for the amount of time we have saved and the stress of payroll has become so much lighter for us as a company and we can confidently attribute that to what WorkYard has done for us.
I have had a great experience using workyard- the online help center is also very helpful for asking questions I don't know- they get back to you with a timely manor.

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.

Cons

The only thing I have been displeased with so far is the deactivation and reactivation of an employee.
Difficulty in correcting/ adjusting time entries, particularly when an entry was missed, without sometimes voiding other entries already made.
Employees no longer manually keep up with their time and text it in weekly. I have several days more to complete payroll.
