Timekeeping / Time Clock

Public Safety Time Clock Software

Our web-based timekeeping feature offers multiple options for tracking time for full-time employees, part-time employees as well as volunteers. It seamlessly interacts with the Scheduling Module and can export data to nearly any payroll software or company.

We offer many ways for tracking time including hourly and salaried employees. For those that clock in/out, employees can punch in & out using our online time clock which can be restricted by location (IP address, MAC address or computer name). When your member clocks in/out, our software will check the schedule and verify the member is currently scheduled to work. Any discrepancies will require an explanation by the member and approval by a supervisor.

Imagine having no more paper time cards! Eliminate the need to manually calculate hours each week. Reduce the risk of human error. eSchedule will take care of it all.

Employees Don’t Punch In & Out?

Even if your employees don’t punch in and out because they’re salaried, you can still benefit from using this feature. The Timekeeping Module is so much more than just a way to punch in and out. You can keep track of PTO/vacation requests, comp time or simply keep track of hours worked/volunteered based on the schedule.
