What is OnTheClock.com?

OnTheClock.com is a cloud-based employee time clock app which enables users to schedule employee shifts, automatically calculate hours worked and track time off, and supports multiple different clock-in options. Employees can punch in from their workstation computers through the OnTheClock.com website, using the native iOS and Android mobile apps, or group punch stations can be created using wall-mounted tablets. Fingerprint scanners can be used with the system, ensuring employees are present when punched in and preventing ‘buddy punching’. OnTheClock.com also gives users the ability to monitor or control the GPS locations and IP addresses employees can punch in and out from if they are using the mobile apps.

Key benefits of using OnTheClock.com

  • Employees can punch in using their mobile phones, with users able to set GPS and IP address control to ensure employees can only clock in and out from approved locations.

  • Employees can also punch in and out from a computer, group punch using a wall-mounted tablet or similar device, or use their fingerprints to clock in and out, preventing ‘buddy punching’.

  • Employee schedules can be created by dragging-and-dropping shifts into the schedule.

  • Punches and hours can be edited in time cards, with instant recalculations and updates of any changes made.

  • OnTheClock.com integrates with payroll providers and supports semi-monthly, monthly, bi-weekly, and weekly pay periods.

  • Paid time off (PTO) accruals can be managed for personal, holiday/vacation, and sickness time off, and all absences and time off tracked.

    Pros
    Not only is this the most cost effective system I've used, it's simple, straightforward and the support is outstanding.
    Very happy with the user-friendly ease for myself, employees, and the mobile app. Thankful for the great service.
    I can't say enough good things. I'm very busy so something very powerful and simple for our company has been great.
    Cons
    The GPS feature to avoid clocking in from afar does not work with enough precision to be useable.
    He seemed irritated by having to answer any questions.
    The only negative would be, if you have employees that do not have a cell phone with data nor access to a computer to log in and out.

    Easy and reasonably priced

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Using Quickbooks with the time clock information makes payroll take a couple of minutes, allowing me to get done quickly and correctly. Employees like the ease of use, so they actually clock in and out! The cost of the program has risen, but still well worth the time savings.

    Pros

    As an employer I wanted an easy to use time clock. This is and has been such an easy set up and managed program I could not recommend it more highly. The ability to assign managers for other employees has made my payroll day so much easier, which is a big time saver, making payroll a breeze.

    Cons

    Printing options. There is not a smooth way to print audit logs. Having that additional report would be a great help for documentation of changes made after the fact.

    Vendor response

    Hi Kevin, We appreciate your feedback and review. Have a great day!

    Why Pay Too Much for Time Tracking Software

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I have had no issues with the program and use it regularly. We saved a lot of money by switching.

    Pros

    We have a small organization so we pay nothing for this software. It allows us to still track codes, time off etc. In fact, the time off feature works better than with some other companies as we can customize to each employee. It is easy to use. We also work remotely and don't require check in/out and are able to merely enter the number of hours for each job code.

    Cons

    The time off feature is a little odd as it doesn't show in the administrative reports easily. However, once you learn to use it, it works fine.

    Vendor response

    Hi Tereza! Thanks for the awesome review. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance with our time off tracking feature - we would love to help. Thanks again, -OTC Team

    GPS does not always track

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Everyone I talked to is great, I will give it a try. They told me GPS is a new feature and that they will continue to roll out features for it. I just wish it was much more transparent on how the employee controls the GPS.

    Pros

    The interface is great on the admin side. Our employees have liked the ease of use. The cost is really reasonable as well.

    Cons

    The biggest drawback and why I might switch back to TSheets is that the GPS is dependent on the employee. If they close the app out it stops tracking them. It defeats the purpose of having it to prevent time theft. I am not sure why it can't continue to run in the background as that is what TSheets does. If you create geofencing it only matters for punching in and out. If they leave it does not punch them out but continues to keep their time. The GPS feature is great but if the employees have the control over it, it defeats the purpose of having it.

    Vendor response

    Hello Jamie, Thank you for the honest and kind feedback. Our developing team is currently working on some new robust and detailed features that will be geared towards improving the items you mentioned. We would love to have you continue to grow with the OnTheClock family. Have a great day, -OTC Team

    OnTheClock is a good software to integrate with other payroll solutions

    Reviewed 6 months ago
    Pros

    Integrates with Gusto (my payroll solution software) Employees can easily track their time and PTO requests

    Cons

    The PTO requests are not so obvious on the management side. There's no pop-up or obvious warning that lets me know someone requested PTO. I would have to be conscientious to go into the PTO section and see if anyone did.

    Vendor response

    Hi Lissette, thank you for your valuable feedback and generous review. Have a great day.
