ClockShark Feature Reviews

C. Alexander E.

Easy to use, easy to train, easy to hold employees accountable

2018-05-29

We are able to job cost and track time in an audit-proof manner, especially on prevailing wage and similar jobs.

Pros

From a management perspective, it allows team leaders to monitor employee activity level and time on task (including flagging tasks that take longer than they should, so we can determine the root cause - was time estimate unrealistic?

Cons

Some apps allow for report customization; instead, the reports can be extracted in CSV to and Excel spreadsheets, which allows for data manipulation, but a more robust solution would be to allow for the creation of specific reports to meet our needs.

2017-06-27

Less time for management to collect and review time-sheets.

Pros

The mobile app is not a robust as the website.

ClockShark is a great tool for my Business

2020-06-16

I love that schedule updates can be sent directly to my employees and there are clock and clock out reminders. The Mobile access allows my employees to clock in and out remotely and the GPS feature is a great tool for off-site management.

Pros

It makes payroll processing easy and my employees can be assured accuracy in time reporting conversion to payroll.

Cons

The User Interface could be more appealing to the end user.

Critical features over competing products

2020-07-28

I am tracking labour in real time instead of the end of the day or week and trying to remember what and when I did the work.

Pros

- The ability to create billable and non-billable time entries.

Cons

Getting the reports to show what I needed was a lot of trial and error, but now that I know how your reporting works, I am happy.

Hi Oleg! Thank you so much for the 5 star review and positive feedback! I'm so happy to hear that the implementation was easy and your team loves it! Depending on what you're looking to do for project tracking, we do have many of the Co-construct capabilities: communication on the job/customer, photo/file uploads, and the integration for payroll! We are currently working on adding quotes, invoices, and payments so keep a lookout! This should be released soon. Give us a call at 1-800-828-0689 or chat in and we can elaborate and figure out the best way we can help your business!

Time sheet management and scheduling.

Pros

I love the capability of tracking my guys' schedules, their hours on a job, their traveling hours to a job, and the ability to edit their timecards.

Cons

The ability to see a graphic representation of how long a job will take at a glance when scheduling so you know how much time in their day you have left or the ability to easily schedule on a mobile device would be nice.

Hi, Niki. Thanks for taking the time to share your review here on Capterra. We really appreciate the feedback. It's how we get better. Thank you for the suggestion about being able to forecast the hours scheduled, so you know how many an employee will be working. That idea is currently posted on our Voting Page, so I'm going to go ahead and endorse that there on your behalf. If you have any other suggestions or ideas, feel free to let me know. Glad to see that you are happy both with the price and convenience of using ClockShark. If there's anything we can help you with, just let us know. Take care, Niki! -Morgan-

reduced paper, less time to capture more details about our workforce activity

Pros

The GPS tracking has been helpful to understand the distances between certain jobs, and the travel times.

Cons

We really like the software, a few reports could use some titles to identify the "selections" made to generate the reports. otherwise good reporting ability

ClockShark enabled us to improve our time tracking, billing, job costing and scheduling processes

2018-06-28

Huge time savings (no more collecting paper time sheets), accurate and immediate time reporting, scheduling employees and sending notifications when the schedule changes saves many texts/phone calls.

Pros

The App uses minimal data which was a big selling feature to our employees.

Cons

We would like to be able to measure time and/or distance when someone clocks In or Out from outside of the geofence so we can deduct time accordingly.

We are now tracking time far more reliably and are able to keep up with what stages jobs are at which means we can invoice out much faster.

Pros

The mobile access is fantastic for staff to keep track of their times and switching between jobs is easy for them.

Easy to read, easy to use

2017-07-18

Using clock shark allows employers to print reports for each week - allows for ease when entering payroll in the system

Pros

helps with tracking job costing - makes it easier to track time for the majority of the crews - like the ability in the ease of being able to edit

Cons

not everyone has a smart phone, makes it harder for office to track their time - need for them to be able to access from a computer to track these employees times

My staff practiced for one pay period (2 weeks) before going live right after Christmas

2018-01-16

More accurate job tracking/costing; easier payroll processing; ability to go back and review data; numerous slice and dice reports.

Pros

The ClockShark reports make that task far easier than the spreadsheet I used to use.

Cons

I needed to give her a little bit of admin access in order to do this, but it's not been a problem.

Response from ClockShark


Hi, David :)

Thanks for testifying to all of the immediate benefits you've had after using ClockShark for just a couple of months. We love to hear that ClockShark has helped you with your payroll process and its accuracy. What a great story about being able to find the error in the hours and correct it before cutting the checks!

We're glad that the staff are enjoying using it, and that you were able to use the "Manager Permissions" to accommodate your employee who doesn't have a smart phone. That's exactly how to use those permissions. :)

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know. You mentioned sometimes forgetting to clock in/out, and we'd love to show you some of the reminders available in ClockShark that can help with that. (Not that you'll need them forever: you're going no have that old habit resurrected in no time!)

Welcome to the ClockShark team, David. We're here to help your business, so just let us know what we can do. Have a tremendous day!

Hi, Ulrike. Thanks for sharing your review of ClockShark. I'm really happy to hear that you're able to easily review the weekly timesheets, and that you're exporting all the timesheets successfully to Excel. How would you like those reports customized? I'll send you an email that you can reply to with your answer. We also just recently updated the mobile app to include the majority of Administrative features. Is that what you are referring to when you talk about improved mobile access?

We're extremely happy to have you as part of the ClockShark team. Please let us know if you need anything! -Morgan-
