We use ClockShark to keep track of our hourly employees' time at work. The app is easy to use on a cell phone. It has been useful and the reports are easy to download. It definitely has not been without issues. The GPS is supposed to track employees while they are logged in but there have been a handful of times that an employee is marked as in the middle of the ocean LOL Customer service is easy to reach and work with.

ClockShark works well to keep track of employees' time at work. Employees use their cell phones to clock in and out every day. It is easy to edit times if an employee makes a mistake or forgets to clock in/out. I like being able to run reports any time, with and timeframes, and edit reports if necessary.
