“The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.”
Such a timely quote from Stephen R Covey especially now that QicWorks offers its Users three (3) very different but super easy ways to collect time.
At QicWorks, we collect times entries and automatically allocate them direct to the Job and Task assigned by the User, giving you accurate job costings, in real time. Our two (2) step time approval process ensures both Manager and Payroll approvals are given before times can be pushed to your accounting software.
Using single entry data and having this approval process in place ensures data accuracy, (not to mention maintaining your sanity) when it comes to processing your workplace pay runs.
But it got the team thinking….. How can we make it even easier for you to manage timekeeping?
As our existing QicWorks Users already know, our companion app can be converted into a Kiosk Mode enabling team members to simply enter their unique 4digit pin code and clock in and out of work (or their breaks – if applicable.) The Kiosk Time clock will automatically capture a photo of the Resource at time changes, to help confirm their attendance. (Photos are stored on QicWorks for 2 weeks, and are then deleted, to ensure User privacy.) This is a great time saver, as well as being the digital answer to the old Bundy Clock.
Site Reports or Daily Diaries can also be added via the app or hub enabling Supervisors to capture individual or team member times. This document has now been enhanced to allow for time collection to be either by start/end time or start time and duration, giving our Users even more flexibility.
April 2020 saw the release of our Timesheet function (again available on our app or via hub login.) Save time entering mundane and repetitive data. Simply fill in the first User’s details ie Job and Task, start/end times or start times and duration, then click auto fill and the whole team will automatically be updated with these details. Simply edit any team members (by exception) see how much time you save. This feature is especially awesome when the bulk of your team work the same times, on the same job.
The best news is that all three options are now available on our companion app available to download for free from
