I think the best place for TimeClock Plus to work would be at a restaurant or a busy business that has a lot of people to track and needs a robust dashboard to keep things in order. For my organization, we only have around 10 people max per location and it was a bit too expensive and complex for our needs. We could use a simpler system.

  • Would be nice to see at end of day hours currently worked. Instead you have to do this using another function.
  • Should be simpler way of putting employee's schedule in time clock rather than copying and pasting week after week, month after month.
  • Should be a way to archive old employees.

    Calamari

    Working with my rep is so easy and has been the selling point on this platform. I like that I don't have to think about it much, love the Slack integrations for my team and how easy it was to transition from our old process into Calamari. It's simple, clear, and for a small team, it has everything I need. The customer support team has always responded promptly when I need anything, and we were even able to extend our trial period in the beginning and converted to a paying customer shortly after.

    • The support representatives respond quickly and work hard to resolve every issue. They are always friendly and courteous.
    • The email notifications are our most significant issue, and they are still not entirely resolved.
    • I dislike having to sign forms to allow them access to the databases routinely...it seems this could be an annual document.

    Alternatives Considered

    Calamari

    Our HR department used Excel and paper request forms for our vacation management, and tracking working hours didn't exist. We were only obliged to sign a list when we were entering the office. Calamari is a huge improvement in every aspect of time tracking and vacation management for your company. We're loving it!

    We switched to Namely for our HRIS system and they had a time tracking solution integrated within their software which made us no longer need to utilize TimeClock Plus. Namely's time tracking also flowed seamlessly into our payroll which made the process much simpler and easier to use. The reporting is also much easier to utilize.

    Return on Investment

    Calamari

    • It is quick and simple to provide application training to employees.
    • When there are problems with the connection, it is possible to record that the user does not mark their exit or accounts for extra time.

    TCP

    • Positive: The ease of not manually tracking clocking in and out.
    • Negative: Expensive and too robust of a software for a small team.
    • Negative: The app is dated and needs an update and can be slow.
