Time Clock For Your Employees

OnTheClock offers a time clock that keeps employees happy, yet accountable at the same time.

Your employees can easily clock in and clock out from an authorized device that is assigned by the Administrator. Employees have a variety of ways to conveniently clock in and clock out by the use of the mobile clock app, web browser, biometric/fingerprint, kiosk and Group Punch. OnTheClock also offers employee tracking features such as geofencing and GPS for location control that will show where clock in and clock out times were recorded. Employees also have the ability to log into their time clock account to check the status of their paid time off (PTO) requests along with their work schedules.

GPS Tracking And Know Who’s In

Our time clock GPS features make it easy to manage employees and increases accountability. Whether your team is working in the office, on the road or from home, you can conveniently see who’s on the clock and access their location.

The Who’s In feature allows employers the option to see who is punched in or out in live-time. Admins and Managers of the time clock account can punch in and out an employee if he or she has forgotten to do so. Do you know who’s on the clock?
