ClockShark is the time clock app for users of ClockShark, a cloud-based construction time clock app used by both construction and field service companies. ClockShark is a simple and easy-to-use time clock for employees while out on the job site. Times are synced automatically with ClockShark, and feature GPS tracking of worker locations, the ability to add notes while clocking in and out, and the ability to view upcoming work schedules.
Have you noticed that tracking time for payroll using paper time cards is a frustrating waste of time and money?
Introducing the ClockShark time clock app for construction and field service companies:
1. Employees Punch In and Out
Employees punch in on the time clock app via their smartphone, tablet or on the web. This makes it easy to collect time accurately using the devices your employees already carry, without expensive hardware to buy. You get an accurate time record and your crews get an easy to use app. You'll spend less time messing with time cards and more time making money.
2. You View Times on the Website
After employees punch in and out, their times and worked job codes from the time clock app are automatically uploaded to your web dashboard (usually in near real-time). There you can view and edit time including daily totals, weekly totals, and job totals. Payroll will be quicker and more accurate, so you can stop losing time and money that you could be using on other parts of your business.
3. GPSTrak (GPS technology)
The GPSTrak feature shows you where each punch occurred on a map. It gives you peace of mind that everyone is where they should be, so you can worry less and focus on bigger problems. Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
4. Job Cost by Job Name and Task
As you land jobs, you can easily add them via the website with a name and job number. Then your employees can clock into that specific job via the mobile app on their smartphone or tablet. They can also select a Task Code, such as Framing, Concrete Work, or Travel Time. Employees can easily switch jobs or tasks from the mobile app during the day so that your job costing and payroll is accurate.
5. Schedule Employees by Job Site
Schedule your employees by dragging any of your active jobs onto the schedule board. Employees can instantly view their schedule via their smartphone. Now you don't have to stay late sending text messages or making phone calls about tomorrow's schedule changes. You can even add notes, like "bring your concrete tools" or "meet us at 239 Acacia St".
6. Run Easy Reports
Once you're done reviewing your payroll and making any edits needed, you can run and print easy reports. Run a report of total hours by employee for payroll, or total hours per job site for job costing. The basic reports you need are all there. Now you can stop adding up money-losing time cards on an Excel Sheet and get back to business.
Thanks for visiting and reading. We built the ClockShark construction time clock app with the help of 200+ construction companies just like yours that volunteered to help us understand which features you need and which you don't.

So we set out to build the perfect time tracking solution for construction, to help construction business owners run their businesses better. ClockShark is a powerful, clean and easy to use time clock and scheduler that we designed to do everything most construction businesses will need.

Ratings and Reviews
Better than paper, not perfect
I really like the simple UI. Easy to use, and I love that my companies time tracking is all electronic. Saves a lot of hassle and allows me to work from home. The GPS feature is cool. It has a neat timesheet summary page which is handy.
It really needs a feature for amending/correcting time mistakes. I forget to clock in or clock out sometimes and I have to hassle the secretaries at my company every time I forget. It’s not like there’s a punch out box by the door to remind you to clock in or out. I’ve stared doing it in the notes but sometimes the secretaries don’t look.
Also it crashes or gets into failed sync states. Tech support is very good and helpful, but even they have had to resort to telling me to just reinstall the app because it was an unrecoverable glitch.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the review! It’s great to hear you’ve had a good experience with our customer support team.
We’re sorry you’re having trouble with amending/correcting your time though. ClockShark administrators can give you permission to edit your own time.

You can also set reminders in the mobile app to help remind you to clock in and out every day.
We’ve made some updates to the app since your review so hopefully the crashes and syncing problems are no longer an issue. Please let us know if things have improved.

Super User Friendly, Game Changer!
This app is great great great! Easy to use and add to phones. The gps tracking is great so we can verify our employees marked the correct job, we can pull hours easily for job costing, the employees can see their total hours to verify their paychecks, etc. I used to spend hours on timesheets and no more now that we have the app!
Some of the other reviews that are negative say that the employer is always tracking the employee, but the employer can only see the gps location if the employee is “clocked in”, so it doesn’t track gps data when someone is not working. And yes, it does use a very small amount of data, but we use Verizon’s unlimited business plan for 10 phones and the data use always really low.
Just a suggestion
It’s a pretty good app and easy to use, no complaints. I would recommend to the developers that they enable it to work with Shortcuts, or when you press and hold the app it would be cool if there was an option to clock in and out without having to open the app. It’s really not that big of a deal, but it would be nice.
