Pros: Record Keeping For a Lot of People

Cons: Crashing

Overall: I Use About time every day. It is very easy to use and monitor time entrys. There are times that the app crashes and it takes a while to start up. One feature I would like to see added is a timer reminding you to enter your time at the end of the day.

Our support team verified that they have not been contacted about any issues with the software application crashing. We reached out to discuss this with the Vaughn Construction and they did confirm that the performance issue was a result of poor cellular coverage on a tablet using an air card to synchronize data to AboutTime. The crashing referenced in the review had only to do with one employee that was trying to send data where he did not have a cellular connection and was not an AboutTime software performance issue.

This software is good for what you get but needs to be updated.

Pros: Once you understand how this software works its easy. They have great customer support who can help you along the way as well as videos to watch so you understand from the beginning how to use the program.

Cons: This system just needs to be updated a little more. There's other programs that have updated and I think if it would update as well and not be so frustrating to work with at times customers would be happier with this product.

Overall: You have all your equipment, jobs, and field notes in one place which is great so you know where everything is when you need it.

We're glad that you're enjoying the AboutTime Enterprise Suite. We are continuing to update the AboutTime Enterprise Suite's features, but if you are looking for a much more modern looking interface, you should check out WorkMax, our cloud-based resource management platform to keep all your forms, time tracking, and asset tracking all in one place. Feel free to call us at 801-465-8181 to learn more.

Pros: What I like most about the software is the various different ways to sort each time entry. My company has a lot of employees and it makes it much easier to sort through everything with all the features provided.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the process of adding/editing filters to sort through lists of employees/entries. Each time we layoff or hire an employee, a new filter must be made to show each change and it is a time-consuming process to do so.

Good product with strong support and functionality. Sights set on the future.

Pros: Great support and a product that overall offers most of the functionality that we are looking for. Moving to a cloud-based platform in the future.

Cons: Not fully-cloud based. Integration with our current payroll specialist (blend of our process and the output files produced by our payroll company).

Comments: Zach has helped to update the control center with new changes we had requested. Zach showed me how to use the new additions. Zach also helped to set up new pay grounds and overtime rules.
Zach is very good at getting back to me when i email him with queries.

On another note, as a front end user it would be good if AboutTime contacted us to gain feedback on how we find the system and glitches we come across. For example the history function does not always work.

Comments: I have spent countless hours entering employee time, correcting and reissuing paychecks where time had been reported incorrectly. I have also spent countless hours scanning forms for extra work that was done, approved, and needs to be added to the contract value by the customer.

The business has previously tried using other apps/ programs that advertised many of the same things that About Time does. About Time actually works. The Forms Express option is more powerful than I could even imagine. It is pretty user friendly once you get it figured out. The staff at About Time is very responsive and helpful. I have never felt as if I were left to sink or swim throughout this process.

It is about time that I am finally able to use a product that will save me the time it claims. I am so excited to use this product and all the potential uses it has.

Pros: When an employee is entered into sage it syncs to the device. You are able to create crews for each foreman.

Cons: Having to invest in palm pilots and then switch to phones. This unfortunately was a loss for our company.

Overall: It is user friendly even for the employees that are not computer savvy.

Pros: If we have a problem the customer service is always very helpful and knows what their talking about.

Cons: We've lost information that we couldn't get back. The customer support didn't know how to help me either so it was a little frustrating.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think this is a great system that just has some kinks in it that can be worked out. In the long run it will work for you if you figure out everything with it and how it works.

Comments: Periodic schedule tracking

Pros: Low cost, reasonable scheduling program. It helps keep up with calendar events and priorities for varied volunteer activities I am involved in.

Cons: Not much documentation of how it works. I haven't found a simple way to transfer appointments and details without retyping everything.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you know how to do all the things you want the software to do. Check the compatibility with other software you use.

Comments: We have used this software for 5 years and it has kept up with the evolving technology. Now they offer Biometric Fingerprint, RFID and Face Capture.

I can't say enough about the job cost budgeting. It has saved us countless dollars on labor and overhead expense.

The GPS and job info navigation is something our field crew use each day when performing service orders.

Comments: I want more information on About the various functionality that exists in About Time

Pros: The functionality within the system seems to be very flexible. We have a multiple location company where many people need access and the system seems to be able to accommodate this well.

Cons: I do not understand all the features within the system yet and I feel that there is much more that can be done within the system that we are not doing.

Very easy to use, and navigate. Keeps jobs and workers organized and easily manageable. GPS is great

Pros: The GPS and ability to check in on crews when you aren't on site directly is very helpful to make sure people are showing up to work on time.

Cons: GPS sometimes goes out of range or posts and inaccurate locations which can lead to issues with workers.
