HouseCall Pro
[HouseCall Pro] would be great for service techs and smaller companies but is tough for companies that do multiple types of jobs, [do] not sync well with QBO for us, and creates an accounting mess. Also does not do job costing so hard to actually keep track of jobs

We don't use the clock in and clock out feature so I can't speak to that. It works best for our exempt employees and is a little harder for our non-exempt employees. We allow employees to enter their start and stop times but some of our non-exempt employees have trouble logging their meals properly. If they did it incorrectly, they can't always fix it and it has to be fixed by an admin (often by deleting all the time entered for that day).

  • While you can future date many changes in an employee profile, you can't change all of them. A big one that I wish you could future date is manager changes.
  • There is not a way to have the project codes/cost centers automatically accessible for employees. New employees have to go in and activate them. It's a small thing but people just don't pay much attention.
  • They could really improve their training materials. Some short videos to share with employees on entering time would be really helpful.
  • They don't have a mobile app. They have a mobile website but it isn't great and our employees really want an app.

Stratustime's GUI is better, but Kronos seemed more stable

Return on Investment
HouseCall Pro
  • Negative is time lost fixing books.
  • Negative is having to use multiple programs to fulfill needs so it takes 2x as long.
  • [The] positive is that it is very user-friendly so our team has picked it up easily and techs save time in the field.

  • Overall, it has really helped us streamline our timekeeping process by allowing managers and employees to approve their time electronically from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • The ability to reconcile time sheets in a timely manner as also allowed us to process payroll a few days earlier than we were able to with our previous system.
