Clock In Software
Clocking In Software That Isn’t a Pain
Many of the traditional methods of employee timekeeping are no longer effective in today’s business landscape. Old-fashioned paper punch cards are only effective for in-office employees, and they rely on technology that has long been obsolete. Key fobs and swipe cards go missing, end up in the washing machine, break and need to be replaced, or become demagnetized. Asking employees to report their own hours worked tends to be unreliable, as many people forget to keep track or might exaggerate a bit.
For a time clock system to be truly effective, it needs to be easy to use and available to all employees, whether they work in the office or from home. It needs to be quick, convenient, and free from the flaws that make many methods of clocking in and out susceptible to fraud, alteration, or forgetfulness.
That’s where Jolt comes in – with a time clock and employee management software that requires no special training and makes work life easier for both employees and administrators.
Employee Time Clock Software
In addition to many useful extras, Jolt’s employee time clock software covers all the essential facets of employee time management in one easy-to-use platform. Our time clock also excels in preventing time theft and unscheduled employee breaks. Early and late punches can be blocked or flagged to reduce unnecessary or unauthorized overtime. Individual employees’ pay grades and overtime rates can easily be kept organized as well. Jolt uses industry-leading technology solutions to help your company to operate at the highest levels of efficiency. Save time and money by digitizing your employee clock in procedures and by enhancing your employees’ personal accountability to meet and exceed performance goals.
With Jolt Time Clock, you can eliminate the headaches you experience with your current time and attendance system, and you get the additional benefits that come with an all-in-one, integrated system.
Facial Detection Time Clock Software
The main benefit of using facial detection as part of your company’s employee time clock software is that it eliminates and discourages buddy clock-ins because it captures a picture of every employee punch in/punch out. Although it is most often done when a coworker is running only a few minutes behind schedule, It is still a form of time theft. In some cases, less scrupulous employees have been known to clock in a coworker for entire hours – or even shifts – for which they are not actually present. According to one 2017 study, buddy punching is the cause of financial loss for US businesses to the tune of 373 million dollars per year.
Punch in systems such as Jolt’s face detection time clock software prevents employees from being able to clock in for a coworker. That makes it a permanent solution for two problems: the financial burden placed upon your company by employee time theft and your staff feeling pressured to punch in for their coworker if asked. After all, most people do not want to do anything that could risk their job or give them a guilty conscience; why not do everyone a favor and remove the temptation entirely?
Infuse Company Culture With Extreme Ownership
Clocking in is the very first thing that your employees do when they start their work day. That makes it the perfect time to take a couple of seconds to think about the company’s culture and values as they switch into work mode. Extreme ownership is one of these values. It is a leadership and personal accountability concept brought to the attention of business managers the world over with the popular book of the same name. Since its publication in 2015, many companies have been striving to instill the value of extreme ownership in their employees.
Taking full and complete responsibility for one’s own actions starts with the very act of clocking in. With face detection and the ability to access the company’s clocking in software from any internet-connected device, there is very little room for finding someone else to blame in the event of incorrect time keeping. Being presented with these reminders of your company’s values at the beginning of each and every shift makes a firm impression on your employees and helps them to internalize positive facets of your company culture, such as extreme ownership.
With Jolt’s employee time clock software, you get much more than a one size fits all timekeeping solution. We recognize that each business has its own unique needs, and not every company will require the same features. That is why we have designed our software to be easily configured to fit the specifications of each individual client. Your business can set up its Jolt system to include all of the tools and functions you will need to help your business run smoothly, and you don’t need to clutter up your system with features that do not serve your needs at this time.
Your company can set its own parameters for variables such as overtime. Whether you calculate overtime by day, by week, or by month, Jolt’s software can make it easier to ensure that all your employees are paid at the correct rate for every hour worked. When you set up your employee time clock software to keep track of all regular and overtime hours worked, you don’t need to worry about inaccuracies in self-reporting or human error in calculating the pay rate. It is simply done correctly, on time every time.
Jolt is the provider of choice by many household name companies across several industries, and for very good reasons. We offer a multifunctional, all-in-one time clock and employee accountability solution, in addition to many other excellent software products. Whether disseminating a company-wide notice directly from the CEO of a multi-location business to onboarding new hires at a small, locally owned business, Jolt helps you get it right the first time.
Our commitment to excellent customer service is evident in each interaction with our company’s representatives as well. We know that most business owners and managers put in a lot of work to offer an excellent product and top-notch service to their customers, and we strive to do the same for our clients.
We know how important communication is to running a successful business. Our time clock software has built-in options for enhancing communication within your company as well.
Recording and Evaluating Data
One of our biggest values of our time clock is for the payroll admin. Instead of employees bugging their managers about clock-in/clock-out mistakes, our software enables employees the ability to adjust their own time cards and then flags any corrections to be easily approved or denied by the admin. This saves them countless hours every time they run payroll. Employees get paid on time and error-free every time. All other means of securing the loyalty and job satisfaction of your employees are a distant second to getting staff members paid correctly and without delay.
Management benefits, too; they get an easy-to-navigate run down of their team members’ productivity, punctuality, and engagement with their job duties. Everyone benefits when a greater understanding can be had of the overall performance of both individual employees and the company as a whole. Make smarter staffing choices when you can see how employees are spending their time.
Graphical displays make it easy to read and interpret pertinent data in the app, and you will notice right away how much time you save on your day-to-day business operations with Jolt software solutions.

Value of Announcements
If you want to be certain that your employees see important notifications and announcements, put them in a place employees will be sure to look. Paper memos are easy to ignore and may go unnoticed if they are put up on the wall or on a bulletin board. Given the way our eyes and minds work, it is too easy for paper signs to fade into the background and escape conscious awareness. For something to be brought to the forefront of our attention, it needs to stand out and catch us at the right time, so to speak.
Jolt’s integrated announcements feature of their time clock software solves this problem efficiently. As an employee is clocking in for the day, they can be presented with relevant announcements. This might include changes to company policy, upcoming deadline reminders, holiday or seasonal changes in hours of operation, ongoing sales and promotions, company-wide events or meetings, and so on. Each employee will need to click through the announcement in order to clock in, but they can also be required to complete a quick quiz to prove that they understood the content of the message as well.
Value of Quiz Announcements
It is said that knowledge is power. If that is the case, then the best way to empower your staff to perform at the level of their highest potential and give outstanding customer service in each interaction is to give them the knowledge they need to succeed. Your operation will run more smoothly when your employees are kept better informed about relevant company policies and procedures. It is too easy to click a box or sign off on a memo or announcement without having actually read it carefully. Especially if someone is in a rush, distracted, or does not appreciate the importance of the announcement, they are liable to give only a cursory glance to a mass text or email, for example.
With Jolt’s employee clock in software, however, comprehension quizzes can be included with announcements presented at the time the employee clocks in for the day. Administrators will be able to see at a glance a summary of how many employees have seen the announcement, taken the quiz, and received a passing score. You can be confident that essential information is reaching the people for which it is intended when you have the statistics to prove it.
