There are a lot of industries where employees or collaborators are paid based on their actual time spent working; with the advent of the freelancing world and nomadic workplaces, knowing both what you should value your work at (in terms of time spent and money needed) and how to remotely negotiate and reach a consensus with your potential client.
But time-keeping has been around long before freelancing became a thing, and even fixed-schedule on-site work sometimes requires to keep track of when employees come and go. And it was only a matter of time until mobile technology would try to disrupt this area also. TimeDock could be the helping hand that managers and leaders of construction, renovation and other types of on-site teams need to keep track of their teams' activity during a day of work.
TimeDock makes use of QR code scanning or NFC technology to store information on hours spent working in the cloud, allowing later easy access for managers or team leaders to performances of their teams. Managers can register for 14-day trial of TimeDock, create profiles for as many employees as they want, and then generate employee cards that have QR codes on them to be scanned each time team members go in or out of a work-site. Once registered inside a work-site, each worker may be assigned to a certain activity to be performed.
All data generated is stored in the cloud, and for each employee registered there is a fixed standard fee of $5 per month, with up to $10 per month and a base registration fee $99 for the unlimited version of the service. TimeDock works as an iOS or Android app and originates from New Zealand, where a team of developers and business people are giving their love building this.
