Pros: The GPS locator showed when an employee was not at the location. When they attempted to punch in for work before they even left their house, the system would flag it red and the employee would have to be truthful. This was an important aspect to saving our company money. When you have 40 employees and several of them are making upwards or more and they are punching in for an extra 15-30 minutes daily, it makes a large difference. It also made job costing a breeze. Instead of spending several hours job costing a big job weekly, a few selections in the report screen and there is a complete breakdown within just a couple of minutes. This was an excellent money and time saver aspect of the program. Also, being able to just hit a few buttons and transfer all the time records to my accounting software for payroll is a miraculous thing for me. Instead of spending hours on time records for payroll, a couple of minutes and there it is, ready to go. On the accounting side of the program, just the money saved in time alone, paid for the program in all actuality.

Cons: If the employee turns off the GPS locator on their mobile device, they can beat the system. It is overall a great program.

Overall: Saves time and money from start to finish.

Pros: I really like being able to track hours and records, and run customized reports. I also like that we don't have to bring the clocks in to collect the hours.

Cons: The thing I like least about the software is the updates. Every time it updates, another problem is created. I am not a person who gets frustrated easily, but after years of bad experiences with customer support I tend to get frustrated easily when I have to talk to them. We usually run into problems while doing payroll, and then we have to wait for them to call us back. After they call back I have to spend a couple hours on the phone trying to troubleshoot the problem, at the most inconvenient time. We purchased the software in 2011, and so we know how it works and what reports are available because we have been using the same functions and reports for years. If something breaks and I call in to support I am frequently told that has never been an option and if it was than it was a flaw in the program, or that we have been doing things wrong and we shouldn't be doing our payroll the way we are doing it.

Pros: tracks time well

bread crumbs

Cons: would like geotraker to continue to run as long as ppl are punched in even if they close the app

would like a few more customization options, but pretty good overall

Overall: This move to the web has made things a lot better, and the support has been fantastic!! The live chat and response time/efficiency of the support team has made things far easier for our entire team!!

Recommendations to other buyers: You guys have done great here! Would like to see the ability for workers to enter daily logs that coincide with their hours worked instead of having to punch in under different codes when task switching. So they would just punch in when starting and out when ending. If they work 8 hours, they have to fill in 8hrs of activities in daily logs for that day. like this: Project ABC Jan 2 xxx hrs Task 2 floor protection on 1st floor 5.5 framing washroom #1 0.5 clean up site ---- 8 and make it so that what ever the number of hours they worked according to the punch in/out times, you can't save your log until you've filled out that number of hours in your daily log for that day.

The updates have been better, and faster. This makes payroll a lot easier and keeps employees honest

Pros: I like that you are able to leave comments on the actual timecards, it saves a lot of time from the field notes. I also like that you can see where the employees are clocking in and out from. I wish it would automatically ask them .. "Why are you clocking in here outside of the geotracker" so that they have to answer or say it was a mistake and they meant to clock out earlier. I also like all the different security settings.

Cons: The part that I least like about it is that when I am adjusting the time records, it can be very slow. Also, there are way too many report options and it is hard to figure out the right one you want and it takes too long.

Pros: Its half a step better than paper. I like that they have mobile apps but they don't have much useful data other than punches.

Cons: No accounting or payroll integration. Data dump only. They like to do the sell and run. Never heard from the sales guy again and can't get real help from support.

Overall: Not much other than it gave us something else to use besides paper of excel. Not really happy with the product or their approach to helping customers. Seems like a take it or shake it approach with them on support and product enhancements. Sales guy was all pressure and daily hammering on the phone until we bought, then crickets.

Pros: Time Summit is pretty easy to use and it has really helped speed up the payroll process. Each employee clocks in themselves on their iPhone/iPad and I really love the GeoFence option that shows where they clocked in/out. The customer service is AMAZING. I've had to call a few times and the help is always outstanding.

Cons: Setup for the mobile app requires some work on the office end. I wish the setup code didn't change so frequently. I also wish the verification email didn't expire so quickly. I have to constantly resend the verification emails to employees. I'm not a huge fan of the new internet based Time Summit. It doesn't save/update well and I have to click Save a few times and then switch to another employee for it to calculate correctly.

Overall: Speeds up payroll.

We have reached out to you several times to provide training, but all of our calls have gone unanswered. We ask that you please contact us at your earliest convenience so we can work through this problem. Your company¿s success with using our system is a top priority.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: The old system was slow running on my computer.

Overall: We have been using the ExakTime system for a number of years. Our old way of keeping time records was having the guys write their daily times on timecards. At the end of our two week payroll, I would have to add up all the hours, which was very time consuming. Besides that, I felt like most of the guys were rounding their times to the next 15 minutes each way in their favor. By using the new system of ExakTime, we have reduced the amount of "fluff" time on each of our employees times. Another huge aspect of this system that we benefit from is for our Time and Material jobs. Its very easy to run a report at the end of the job and tally the exact time we spent on that particular job. I love the new upgrade with having our own website to log onto from any computer, tablet or mobile device. I'd recommend, and have, this software to anyone in the construction field!

I love ExakTime, it takes a bit off of my work load!

Pros: I love viewing the reports, and how each paycheck is already set to our pay period. I also like the field notes area, I wish we could save the field notes, and when they are accidently deleted, to be able to retrieve them some how.

Cons: When I am creating a location and need to add a cost code that's not already in the system, it is a pain to have to back out of the location and go in to the cost code page, I wish I could add a cost code on the fly while creating a new job location! I would also like to delete and clean up old cost codes I wont use again, instead of just making them inactive.

Overall: Not having to change hours to decimals by myself!

Pros: It is mostly user-friendly and even when I come across certain components I have trouble with, calling the customer service line usually does the trick!

Cons: Only one thing I've come across where I have a hard time with the software is obtaining original clock-in/clock-out times once they've been edited. This is minimal and we've created a process where there is no need to locate the original times, but an easier way to access the original employee's time card with clock-in/clock-out times would be great!

Overall: I called inquiring an ExakCare Renewal e-mail we had received. Jeremy was very helpful in explaining the prorated amounts per Hornet as well as updating our account information as we have recently moved to a new location.

Recommendations to other buyers: It would also be fantastic if ExakTime was Computerease compatible. Currently, the reports do not transfer from ExakTime to Computerease, so we have to adjust time cards with ExakTime, export the reports to a PDF, e-mail the reports to Accounting so they can manually type in each employee's timecard and run the reports from Computerease.

Pros: Works well with many different jobs, job locations, and different cost codes. This software works well on both the admin side and the employee side. It is simple enough for employees to use on their own without much explanation.

Cons: The field reports section could use some work. I love the ability to write field notes, but sometimes there are errors or delayed notes. Also, if the employee doesn't "log in" to a field note correctly you cannot go back and find it once deleted from notes overall section. However, this is not a deal breaker for the product.

Pros: The interface is easy to use. I like the simplicity of adjusting time and making changes. For the most part the user interface is intuitive. The crew seems to like the independence and simplicity. For instance, if someone is picking up at a lumber yard to start the day they can clock in there, rather than waiting til they get the job site and using a hornet. Before they had to beg me to adjust their time...which was hard to remember. Everyone often forgot, but just a quick photo plus the geotracker component and I can see that they were, indeed, at the lumber yard.

Cons: There is a very big con, which is the lag time that occurs when using Linx software to move the Time Summit data into QB. When everything was l hard-drive based this was a seemless interface. Now, with the Linx being hard drive based and the Time being web based I have interminable delays. It's very very frustrating. There are other related problems too, such as before if I checked a box for time, but synced or uploaded to a different company, then the time would not go through. Now, the time goes through and gets put into QB for the wrong company. It's a problem.

Overall: Quickly knowing who is where, and sycning records to QB

Pros: It's easy to use and offers multiple ways for employees to record their time.

Cons: Data entry screens require mouse and keyboard use instead of allowing straight keyboard typing.

Overall: Overall, I like the system. I would like to see more versatility in the reports. There are tons of data recorded but not accessible. I would also like to see the data entry screens more compatible with traditional typist skills, specifically not having to take hands off the keyboard to move the cursor with the mouse.

Recommendations to other buyers: I wish changes could be implemented more easily. The submitting and voting seems a bit tedious.

Not happy based on my comments in the "Cons" section. Too much over promising and under delivering.

Pros: Easy for employees to use in the field but unhappy with our inability to use all of the reports because they are not based on our working day. Need to be able to adjust the 24 hour clock so that it is not based on a calendar day of 24 hours.

Cons: The software does not allow us to run reports based on our worker's schedules. We need to be able to adjust the hours of what is considered a day. Right now it resets at midnight but that is not how we operate. I was told in July that this feature would be added in the next 90 days. We are now almost 10 months into using the program and the feature still has not been added. If this is not resolved in the next 30 days, I will begin to look for another option rather than renew.

Overall: Electronic capturing of time records and eliminating ability to inflate their working time.

Pros: It does allow us to monitor the employees .

We can print out the time sheets so that we do not need time cards.

It does allow us to no the location of each employee.

Cons: It does not link with our payroll software like we were told when we purchased it.

You can not remove employees after they leave to make room for new employees.

The payroll is calculated by the Canadian laws.

The customer support is not very good.

Overall: It did save some time in the office because we did not have to look at time cards filled out by employees.

Pros: The ability to quickly add employees to the system is nice since they chanced to a subscription model.

Cons: Limited features and VERY limited customization options. The program is what it is, and you need to make your business work around it. The worst part of this is that employees can't see how many hours they've worked from the phone app. It would be nice for employees to see their hours at the very least, and possibly even get alerts at set increments.

ExakTime provides excellent data, reports, and payroll streamlining.

Pros: I love having the time clocking details on a daily basis with excellent reporting capabilities. Being able to open several windows to simultaneously review the time card, Field Notes, Map Tool, and reports to verify time records is so helpful. I love the interactive maps and color coded icons in the time card details.

Cons: The online system has periods of very slow processing, which can be frustrating and inefficient. I don't often have to call into customer service with a technical question, but when I do, having to wait for technical support to call me back is also an efficiency challenge.

Pros: I like that you can clock in and out anywhere. This helps us tremendously as most of our employees are our in the field. We can also set geofences around locations and see where they are clocking in/out on a map. It also calculates time by the minute, which makes payroll much easier.

Cons: The few times I have had to reach out to customer service-the response is not prompt. Also, it'd be nice if we could purchase one "seat" at a time.

Pros: Easy to use...user friendly. Anyone can navigate through the software to all the different available options without having to go through a tutorial or manual. Also, the customer service is top notch (not that we've needed much).

Cons: So far I haven't notice anything that's super terrible but one thing I think that can improved upon is the reporting features and options...or should I say not many options. I feel they could offer more reporting options based on all the different types of data that is collected. I'm sure there are many different needs for different companies, so that may be part of the reason why there aren't a ton of reporting options.

Pros: I like the easy use, and that it requires no extra costly machinery. Easy to teach others to use etc.

Cons: There are some features that I would hope to become available. Specifically in the ExakTime mobile app, we hope to see a function that allows employees to view their own time cards.

Overall: Ease of use, real time data transferring, customization options.

Great product that does exactly what we need it to do.

Pros: It integrates with QuickBooks. The reports that we use are vital to billing our clients since they are billed on a time and material basis. The ability to go back and look at individuals time sheets makes it easy to research any ones time worked.

Cons: There is a learning curve. It is not an easy process for individuals that are not computer literate.

They do have good support staff.

Overall: Once payroll has a handle on the software and has faith in the software. It does make payroll faster to process.

Pros: Its really easy to capture in the office and on mobile units out in the field. The GPS racking is also a great feature

Cons: The new cloud base is limiting to 10 active employees, and as we use temporary labor, I keep having to deactivate employees. Also the original(pre cloud) actually worked better with certain functions

Cons: Report sorting. there are only predefined sorting options I would like to be able to sort by any field I want. I get around it by downloading them into excel however it would be nice not to have to do that.

Overall: We used to get hundreds of time cards a week and now I audit and track my guys through this software, I can not recommend it enough!

Pros: All of the features in the program itself are great.

We like the geo-fence a lot for tracking where guys punch, and the selfie is great for accountability.

Cons: The software patches are glitch-y at times- as is the case with most patches.

We have had issues almost every other month with some portion of the patch

Overall: Each employee is in full control of their own hours- no more blaming managements, or their foreman.

Thank you for your review on our Geotrakker feature. We set out to make tracking the location of the time punches of the employees as accurate as possible so that you in the office would have all the information you could need.

Pros: GPS monitoring

Cons: Not without the same amount of office time required management that a simpler paper system would require. Each timesheet still required manipulation, which was disappointing and not the time saving software we were led to believe it was.

Overall: We unfortunately will not be using ExakTime mobile anymore. When we purchased it, we were led to believe that it would allow the timesheets to be submitted directly to the payroll company with minimal interference from the office. This is not the case. If employees take time off, they are expected to either clock in and out after 8 hours (not practical when someone is on vacation) or write a note and have the bookkeeper manipulate the sheet to submit to the payroll company. We were also having integration issues adding new jobsites from the field for the employees to log into. It would often take hours for the job to appear on everyone's phone, even though we were syncing manually and automatically. There are also differences between the IOS and Android versions, which made it necessary to go in and manipulate individual phones. It ended up being more work for the office staff, which is directly against the problem we were trying to solve. The final straw for us was that it took us a 5 weeks to figure all this out, missing the money back window by a week. Even after explaining our position, we were still denied even a partial refund. Overall this has been a poor experience for us, though this is the second ExakTime product we used.

Cons: App could have more features. For example, employees able to see their in and out punches. (If they can do this already, we have yet to figure out how to view it). Also, a feature for punching in and out for lunch would be nice.

Overall: Spending less time trying to ready time sheets. (Our guys have terrible handwriting). Also a lot easier to keep track of time for each job site since we have employees working at multiple job sites every day.

Cons: buggy; issues; causes payroll errors. Changes AM to PM / vise versa - causes times to calculate improperly. ALSO must exit / go back in to get times to recalc.

Overall: exact time punches (and we are HVAC co)

Pros: tracks time by project so we can jobcost after the project has closed. Employees find it easy to use.

once time has been entered for the week. the employee can log on to the website and confirm his time that he will be paid.

Cons: getting started can be very technical. we run about 3000 projects a year so uploading all of them at the beginning was not an option. we decided to move projects for the next week from Quickbooks to Exaktime.

Overall: better time tracking than paper reports. Job costing is more accurate. Employees can view their time and approve reducing the amount of time backtracking to find an error.

Comments: I am finding Exak time user friendly and am glad for your support team that I continue to call for HELP! Just wondering know there are so many functions I can use but not aware of. If there was a resource manual to look up some of the questions that come up that would really help. After reading the manual and you still have problems then we should be able to call the support line. I am finding if the mobile users do not use the app correctly Exaktime does cannot provide us with the accurate information we require. ie. gps - for some reason some of the timesheet have that highlighted out? Also when you have multiple job sites Exak time does not show you the time they are at each location? If they forget to clock out?

Cons: setting up a job clock, checking time sheets (limited lines shown) no going back to change job name on clocks

Overall: tracking the employees time with job clocks with the clocks and the key to get a more accurate time keeping system.

Pros: it is easy to use once you get the hang of it.

Cons: My instructor at the beginning was not good, so I had a lot of questions once I got started

Overall: Overall it is a big help with grabbing the correct clock in/out time for field employees. I like that the responsibility for entering time has shifted from Foremen to the actual employee. It has freed up our foremen's time at the jobsite not having to run around and figure out time. It has been a cost saving in that it pays employees for actual time worked instead of standard 8 hours. So far the only issue I've had is the GPS hasn't been accurate on all punches so it leaves us having to make a judgement call as to deduct time or not

Pros: This saves time and paperwork in tracking the time for the employees in the field.

Cons: I wish it could track paid breaks and that the GPS tracked the device as long as the app was running... not just a certain employee since multiple employees share the device.

Overall: We love this product but there are a few things that could be better, such as the dashboard, being able to customize reports more and the GPS logging should work as long as the app is running. Mandatory Breaks should be able to be tracked.

Recommendations to other buyers: The timesheets should show breaks and print out their signature for each check out and answers to their questions.

Pros: The app for our employees to use is extremely easy for them to understand and navigate. It is not complicated at all, and being able to GeoTrak their whereabouts keeps them accountable and honest. It has taken our weekly administrative workload and cut it down substantially, and helps ease the burden of tracking times for specific projects.

Cons: We are unable to edit some company settings that are not applicable to our organization/state, which affects the output of our payroll reporting.

Pros: I love the portability of ExakTime. It caters mobility and efficiency. Once set up, ExakTime same me a significant amount of time that I can then devote to more pressing matters.

Cons: 1. The "Timecard Detail" doesn't seem to switch automatically to the current payroll week.

2. Occasionally, when saving and then switching to a new employees timecard to soon, the system will save the new changes to the employee being switched to.

Overall: ExakTime saves me a SIGNIFICANT amount of time!

Cons: Not being able to manipulate the auto lunch time deductions nor the overtime allocations.

Overall: We like that our employees can clock in and out from their mobile devices in the field. The reports that are generated make it easy to run payroll and to track hours to project locations so that they are easily billable. Happy customer!

Pros: Having the time sheets in central office for review on a daily basis. Ability to view what jobs employees are at, and who is clocked in

Cons: It is slow to operate at times, does not keep up with movements of employees in real time, dashboard does not accurately reflect who is clocked in.

Overall: Like the overall program, have trouble with understanding some of the features and how they operate within the system. The Dashboard does not accurately show who is clocked in, employees have to manually sync with the system a lot, can't buy new license and add new employees on the fly. customer support does help when you have issues.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be prepared to spend a lot of time training your employees on how to use the system and office staff on how to operate the system.

Overall: cuts down payroll processing significantly and allows me to identify errors and missing information much quicker.

Pros: The clock in interface is very simple and easy to introduce to employees. The fact that you can use any smart device for multiple people give some great flexibility

Pros: The major benefit to this product was the ability to see if employees were actually at the jobsite when clocking in.

Cons: If the supervisor forgot to clock in or out for the crew it was very difficult to adjust their time. We purchased the software to speed up the payroll process and in the end it took us 3x as long to get hours calculated.
