Any integrated agency (more than just a single-discipline agency) that's looking for a one-stop shop to manage all aspects of running the business would do well to consider Advantage as the single-source tool to do it all. Single-discipline agencies could probably find a less robust tool that's equally as effective for tracking and reporting.

We have recommended to at least two other colleagues. It helps to prevent dishonest time keeping. Manual timekeeping by a supervisor seems to create a lot of room for errors including forgetfulness of who showed up and when. It's nice to be able to track when each employee is working or how many people are on each worksite.

Pros
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Information from site visits is easily accessible.
  • Workflow is easy to use

  • Employee logs in and answers health-related questions before beginning work. They remotely provide their own timesheet information, adjustable by the administrator where needed.
  • Location at time of login is readily available. Distance from jobsite can be determined at any login.
  • Time for lunch is automatically deducted from work hours, logged by type of work interrupted, and easily adjustable by the employer if necessary.
  • Reports by employees of time spent on any type of work during the work day and work week are readily available. Work by job name is also available.

Cons
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Advantage is hugely cumbersome. There are hundreds of functions I will never use, and that I'm not sure anyone else in the organization uses.
  • The user interface could be better. Every time there's an update, there's a small but definitive learning curve.

  • It would be a nice feature if employees could add photos of their progress on jobsites
  • The GPS could be a bit more exact for tracking employees
  • The reports page online is not the most user friendly page. It seems dated.

It is easer to keep someing going then change things out. Our employees have taken 6 months to learn this one, I do not want to reinvent the wheel. Just this week I have seen inprovment as they now know they do not get paid if they do not clock in and back out every day.

It's easy for anyone tech savvy. It is kind of impossible to make anything even more user-friendly than it already is. The app itself has zero issues for all my staff. The admin side of things takes a bit more knowing and learning.

I have not had to use support other then as we got started
and had a few hick ups but they were great.
They answered all our questions even if some of them were no the program
does not do that. I guess the best support is one that is not needed because
the product works great and does its job right

Gave a notice to all
employees to come to work 15 min early on the day planned to implement the
program. I had Spanish and English signs
on how to down load the program and log in I showed them ALL how to log in and
out and explained that they are responsible for reporting accurate time. I had them all sign a policy that lunch
breaks were mandatory for all employees
at least 30 min per day. This ensures
safety on the roofs. We had a few people
who did not have passwords to the app store and we had a few problems with
android phones but most of them were on their way quickly. Most not happy about the change but I hope
they see the benefit of it now.

We have also used BidClips. I find that Advantage gave us more flexibility with custom estimates & report tracking.

We still use Sage, and ExakTime is compatible with it, which is why we went with ExakTime. So technically we use both at this time. ExakTime is a great pairing with Sage since Sage does not have any applications that let employees clock in and out. So we use ExakTime for that and then transfer the information to Sage for the reporting and issuing of deposits/checks, etc.

Return on Investment
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Advantage has everything to do with our company's ability to run an effective back office.
  • When you have a company that does a wide variety of concurrent projects, you need a great tool to manage it all. Advantage does that for us.
  • As I am unfamiliar with the pricing model (I'm not a member of the team that negotiates this particular product), I can't provide any true ROI from an overall business perspective.

  • Saved at least 15 hours of time entry per week
  • Employees clock in and out with accuracy to the minute instead of guessing how many hours they worked on each job/day
  • Jobs/locations are listed on the app so employees can easily find the job they are working on instead of hunting through paperwork to find the location number
  • Geofencing tracks employees clocking in outside the job location
