You’ve looked at Clocktower, you’ve seen the demo, and it’s all great. But you’re asking one simple question. “Why should I use Clocktower?”
Let me tell you a story.
A mid-sized employment company is reviewing their bills for the time tracking software they use. They have 200 employees for the month in question. For each of those employees, they paid $5.50 to allow those employees to access the software.
Do the math; (that’s right $1,100!)
Now, where this story gets really gloomy is when the company realizes, about 10% of their employees logged less than five hours each week for the month.
Now, the company might think, “We’ll just track the time for those employees someplace else.” Nice solution, till they have to reconcile their numbers!
And let’s not even think about giving access to their 300 different clients, some of whom didn’t work with the company for the month in question. (Because, that would cost the company another $1,650, just to let someone sign off on an employee’s time.)
A Better Approach
Let’s step back for just a moment and think about something. What is the resource that is really being tracked? It’s not a trick question; and I know you’ve got the answer. It’s not people, it’s time!
Let’s look at some numbers. We’ll start off with the same 200 employees.
180 of them actually billed 40 hours/week for 4.2 weeks.
Total number of hours: 30,240
And that remaining 10%; they worked 5 hours/week for those same 4.2 weeks.
Total number of hours: 420
Total hours for the month: 30,660
- The company pays $.03/hour for the first 5,000 hours: $150.00
- The company pays $.02/hour for the remaining 25,660 hours: $513.20
- Total for the month: $663.20
- Total additional charges for the 300 clients to use the site: $ 0.00
And if we dig a little deeper, we see something very interesting. Let’s compare the two approaches for those low hour employees:
20 Employees, 5 hours/week, 4.2 weeks on Other System – $110.00
20 Employees, 5 hours/week, 4.2 weeks on Clocktower – $12.60
