Time clock for clocking employees in & out

4.63/5 (180 reviews)

IDEAblox overview

What is IDEAblox?

IDEAblox is an employee time clock solution for small business owners looking to calculate payroll efficiently. Users are able to clock employees in and out with a single click, as well as see instant payroll reports. The web based time clock app replaces the physical time clock to track hourly employees, helping to eliminate potentially expensive errors with time cards.

Employees must log in with a password to clock in, with optional IP tracking for added security. Clock in & outs are always accurate, and cannot be modified without the administrator’s approval. Payroll reports allow managers to see total hours for various pay periods or date ranges, with all regular and overtime hours calculated automatically.

IDEAblox allows users to track and manage all employee time offs and accruals by setting up the organization's time off (PTO) types. Employees can generate the requests themselves, and send them in for manager's approval. The platform’s in / out board enables users to monitor who's in or out, whether at their desk, or while on-the-go via mobile device.

IDEAblox saves all records and timesheets for 5 years, with bank level security using SSL encryption to create daily backups, never disclosing any data to third-parties.

Pros
Perfect for our size of business and much easier than keeping track on paper. Very easy to sign in and immediately clock in. It's also easy to alter hours if a mistake was made. All employees have adapted quickly!

Cons
Customer service has been great to assist with any questions we had on how to set up and get started!

Ins & Outs of Web-Based Time Clocks

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Meets our very basic time tracking needs. The software user interface could use some polish

Pros
The Ins: As the HR coordinator & Payroll Admin for a small owner/operated business I really like the simplicity of the system AND the price. It was easy set up & get our team using the software. I appreciate that our front desk tablet can be used by employees to clock in/clock out; as well as all of the other things we use the table for (Square, etc). Unlike "When I Work" which requires a dedicated device for time clock.

Cons
The Outs: I wish this were an app, rather than a URL website. I'd really like my employees to be able clock in/clock out from their mobile phones, as they work off-site regularly. Secondly, looking at current time cards is messy, there is no mid-day or break/lunch - rather multiple lines of time in/time out for the same work day. Here is where I am vague (and I apologize for that): the system seems clunky and almost too basic. It doesn't allow (easily at least) for employees to clock in for a specific job function or role.

Clunky Interface That Fails at What it's Built For

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

What should be a super easy process of recording time daily is made tedious and frustrating by this software that seems to still be operating in the 1990's rather than 2019.

Pros
Simplicity - it's essentially plug and play.

Cons
This software is incredibly basic, but not in terms of ease. If you clock in using one browser and for any reason have to move to another browser or use your phone, the data doesn't translate and your time gets skewed. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to whether or not you can use a personal sign in or be forced to sign in as the company first, creating a ton of work for whatever department controls the account (the account must access the software on the machine being used to sign in before the user can access their own personal sign-in). Time is easily editable if you make a mistake, but users cannot be assigned their own editing privileges - each adjustment must be approved by a supervisor or account owner.

Time issues. It saves me time and some of my employees are not able to steal company time as easily as before since there is no reason for them not to clock in at the different locations as well as some other things.

Pros
I like the price and the fact that both my locations can use it and I don't have to travel to both locations to get the time. I can see exactly who is clocked in and at what time. I can work on their time and time off from my desk throughout the month not just on payday so it doesn't take make it an all day affair.

Cons
Their are a few kinks still to work out like the titles of my Holiday Sick and PTO etc when I download the time to the spreadsheet but I make do.

Making payroll is some easy. I can get last weeks timecard reports is less than a minute. I love the fact that I can give the employee a report of their complete last year times and show them just how many times they were late for work. This is a good report​ to show when they ask for a raise.​

Pros
No Timecards needed, no ink needed, no time clock that breaks down needed. No need to transfer time card information into a database​. Able to get a history report of any employee for any time period. Able to make changes on employee times. We need this because sometimes the employee will start or finish there day at a different location other than the shop. The employee​ is able to look up their​ total weekly hours anytime they are logged​ on. Converts time from hours and minutes to hourly decimal​ number. I never had to train anyone how to use the system except how to log on.

Cons
Does not work when the Internet goes downs. This happens​ about 2 or 3 times a year. But we can correct​ their times after it comes back on.
