TimeAttend is available in three service plans: Quick Start, Plus and Premier. Pricing for the Quick Start plan is $30 per month for up to five employees. Each additional employee is $5 more per month. The Quick Start plan includes the ability to clock in and out, meal breaks, rounding, activity tracking, some time off management, reports and integration options. TimeAttend provides customized pricing for the Plus and Premier plans, so you'll need to contact the company directly for a price quote. Among the features those plans offer that the Quick Start plan doesn't are scheduling tools, advanced time-off management capabilities, report sharing and a range of customization options.
You are required to sign an annual contract to start. The company offers a 14-day free trial.
Depending on the plan you choose, TimeAttend can handle some, or all, of your time-tracking needs.
- Multiple time-tracking methods. Employees can clock in and out using any web browser or the mobile app. Employers can also turn iOS tablet into a kiosk that can serve the entire office's clocking needs. The system can track not only when employees come and go, but also how long they work on specific projects and in certain locations.
- Mobile app. The mobile app, available on iOS and Android devices, allows employees to clock in and out, enter the hours they've worked, view the status of their timesheets and take pictures and record locations when punching in and out. The mobile app can also be used to request time off and check accruals.
- PTO management. TimeAttend has full paid-time-off management. It keeps track of how much paid time off employees have and have used and allows employers to set their own accrual rules. Employees can also request time off and managers can approve or deny those requests.
- Scheduling tools. The system has full scheduling capabilities that allow employers to create schedules, add shifts, see a summary of the hours each employee worked (and the shifts they were assigned to), and publish schedules so all employees can see in advance time when they are slated to work.
There are a number of other factors that make TimeAttend a useful time and attendance system. We especially liked the following:
- The employee self-service function allows employees to clock in and out and request time off. The portals include productivity tracking tools that allow employees to assign hours to certain tasks or activities.
- Using the administrator portal, those in charge can quickly check employees' status and see who's on the clock, who's on a break and who's out of the office in addition to seeing any time-off requests needing approval.
- You can set up email or mobile notifications that alert you when you need to approve timesheets or correct missed punches. You can also set up notifications to alert employees when it's time to clock in or submit their timesheets.
- TimeAttend allows you to review and approve employees' timesheets before uploading them to payroll. You can set up a workflow to designate which manager or supervisor approves which employee's timecards. Timecards can be approved one at a time or in batches.
- The system integrates with several other business programs, including ADP, QuickBooks and Paychex. If the software doesn't integrate with your payroll service, you can export your data as CSV files.
- TimeAttend offers a wide range of payroll, attendance and summary reports that can be configured and filtered any way you like.
There are couple drawbacks to TimeAttend, including that the CloudClock kiosk option isn't available on Android devices. In addition, Replicon doesn't offer traditional timeclocks for TimeAttend.
In addition, we were less than impressed by the company's live-chat support option. Each time we had a question, the answers we received were unclear or didn't answer our question – it often took a drawn-out exchange to finally get the answers we needed.
