QuickBooks Time Tracking Integration
No matter what industry or vertical you are in, most small and mid-market businesses would agree that their most precious commodity is time. Time is the thing everyone wants more of, wants to keep better track of and wants to manage more efficiently. As you should, because Time is Money.
With QuickBooks Time, businesses can reduce their largest operating expense – Payroll – by 4% and increase billables by 10%.
What would your small-mid sized business do with 4% payroll savings (please add in comments below)? Perhaps you’d buy another piece of equipment or use the savings to create a government mandated 401k plan for your employees. Or perhaps you’d hire another technician or purchase a new software solution to retain employees, train employees or gain new customers.
Along with payroll savings and increased billables, QuickBooks Time can help you manufacture more hours in the day, especially when paired with QuickBooks Online Advanced and QuickBooks Payroll for automation of payroll processing and job costing. Way back in the 80’s when companies were introduced to physical time clocks that could calculate hours worked, the American Payroll Association published a study by Robert Half indicating that systems that capture and calculate time can save payroll administrators 3 hours per week. What would you do with 3 hours back?
Nowadays there are many time tracking options, but none as robust as QuickBooks Time nor as integral to a company’s payroll and job costing processes as when it’s integrated into the same system as payroll and accounting as is QBTime. QBtime will “meet you where you are”, no matter where that might be, but always within your QB system. so, untether from that desktop take a vacation (perhaps with your savings), because QuickBooks now gives you the tools to be nimble and in the know – both imperative to survive and thrive in today’s rapidly changing workforce.
Benefits of Using QuickBooks Time
Data that can be accessed anywhere. With QuickBooks Time, all employee time data is housed inside QuickBooks, integrating seamlessly to allow for accurate, up-to-the-minute employee time tracking—without having to invest hours in tedious data entry. The QuickBooks Time app is the only time tracker that works directly inside QuickBooks and offers Intuit’s industry-leading support. View employee location, time stamps, miles driven, hours worked as well as and key customer information all in real time.
Workforce visibility and productivity. See where your workers are, what job sites they’re at and what they are working on. You can even tell if employees are approaching overtime or optimize your on the fly job assignments by assigning to employees closest to a new incoming job. Manage your payroll costs in real time with visibility to your remote/mobile workforce to curb the biggest payroll leakage challenges – unapproved overtime, buddy punching and mileage reimbursement.
Real-time accountability. We all have experience with paper or excel based timesheets. They can be imprecise and frustratingly incomplete or hard to decipher. The QuickBooks Time app removes all of the guesswork in favor of real-time reporting. Its innovative Who’s Working window shows where employees are at and what they’re currently working on, and GPS tracking can be enabled for greater accountability.
Ease of use by everyone, everywhere. Never has time-tracking been simpler and more accessible. One of the core benefits of QuickBooks Time is that employees can clock in and out from a smartphone, computer, time clock kiosk, crew clock or any other compatible device. Which means you can put QuickBooks Time to work for you almost instantly, without having to invest in pricey or complicated infrastructure. With QuickBooks Time tracking integration, you can also track time against different job codes, bringing a level of detail and accuracy to reports that can save your business money and resources.
