Seamless Field Service Employee Time Tracking
Switching to a mobile time card system sounds simple enough. But for many contractors who already employ a CRM or other field service management system, adding a mobile time card system can mean having to set up a separate payroll and time tracking platform. If you’re looking to streamline your operations while going paperless, this isn’t an option that results in the kind of centralized control and time savings you desire.
Of course, the fractured nature of various generic software management systems is a well-known fact. And it’s probably due in large part to these software incompatibilities that many field service businesses are behind the curve when it comes to embracing field service technology.
In 2020, more than 1,200 U.S. fleet managers and other field service professionals were surveyed on the various challenges and trends impacting their operations. While 51% of survey respondents reported using field service management software, the rest used less automated methods. In fact, 25% of field service businesses still performed key management functions and work coordination via manual processes.
A new study conducted by Worldwide Business Research (WBR) surveyed 100 field service leaders across the United States and Canada on the untapped potential of field data. As of 2021, only 27% of service organizations utilized their field service management software to optimize their revenue operations with field service analytics. One-third of respondents didn’t even have their field service management software connected with their CRM — limiting their ability to provide better customer service.
Over the next year, experts estimate there will be a 30% increase in the number of organizations that use the full capability of their field service analytics. While this is excellent news for the growing adoption of field service software, there is still the concern of time tracking integration and inclusion with many CRM systems. We have a ways to go in our efforts to streamline the quality of communication for the field service management industry.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for the future to arrive or juggle multiple cumbersome software packages when you choose Dataforma’s Mobile Time Card — it’s just another sensible feature included in our comprehensive field service time tracking and management software.

How Dataforma Will Resolve Complications
The right mobile time tracking app can bring many benefits to you and your business. Consider the following reasons to start using Dataforma’s Mobile Time Card for your employees today.
Ease of Use
With just a click, employees can clock in or clock out from their mobile devices. Problems such as lost time cards, incorrect job clocks or misremembered start and stop times are no longer an issue with a mobile time tracking app. A mobile time card also provides ease of use to project managers who can automate data collection and generate reports at the touch of a button.
Paper time cards can introduce several points of human error to your processes. When someone has to input the information manually and load it into the payroll software, a misread or mistyped number will significantly affect time tracking accuracy. Simplify your payroll and other processes with employee time tracking software.
Switching to a mobile time card helps reduce the errors in payroll and saves you time compiling data, too. Most mobile time card apps offer an auto-export feature, allowing you to export timecards directly to your accounting software. Spend minutes reviewing and approving paychecks that would manually take hours to process. Increased accuracy means you can also use the data to provide better estimates for future projects.
Managers can view where employees are located when they clock in or out. Using real-time project data, you can determine how much work is getting done within this time. Reports let you gauge productivity up to the minute and give you more control over the workday. Instant alerts keep you informed of any overtime problems, so you can verify whether or not overtime makes sense for a project in real-time.
Increase employee accountability with a reliable work record. The records from your mobile time tracking app are valuable in the event of an audit or a dispute about payroll accuracy. Features such as intelligent clocking and error tracking help avoid mistakes to ensure the work history is reliable. Managers can see how much time was spent at a particular location and compare it to the field service notes.
