Employees Clock In Via Text Message
HourDoc.com now uses SMS Text Messaging to track employee time.
This new technology will assist companies in tracking their mobile employees and those who work numerous locations and save time and money when clocking in using a cell phone.
When an employee clocks in via their cell phone, they essentially call the HourDoc system and send a basic text message. The text messages are commands for the HourDoc.com system, and the employee chooses one of four text message commands. They are “in”, “out”, “bin” or “bout”. These stand for “clocking in”, “clocking out”, “taking a break/clock in” or “taking a break/clock out”. The HourDoc system then receives these SMS text messages, and posts the according time entries to that employee’s electronic timesheet.
