By October 6, 2021August 2nd, 2022No Comments

One of the local companies providing a payroll timekeeping solution has decided to transfer its customers to a national provider. We’ve spoken to many local businesses that have enjoyed using Swipeclock — and want to continue working with Swipeclock — but want a local partner for payroll.

Applied Payroll Solutions is here to help! We’re a local provider who understands the importance of accurate timekeeping, scheduling, and payroll.

How Do I Choose Employee Timekeeping Tools for My Business? 

‌While the basics of timekeeping and scheduling may be similar for most companies, certain industries have unique challenges and need a payroll timekeeping solution that works for them.


75% of businesses have problems with time theft. It’s a particular concern in manufacturing where employees can inflate payroll with time theft or unauthorized overtime inflating their payroll. You should look for employee time clocks that prevent employees from:

  • Padding hours
  • ‌Failing to punch out after unpaid breaks
  • ‌Buddy punching
  • ‌Out-of-schedule punching


Construction companies have the added challenge of tracking employees across multiple job sites. If you are using a mobile payroll timekeeping solution, you want to make sure it’s equipped with GPS so you can be assured employees clocked in or out while at the job site. 

  • Track contractors and employees
  • ‌Simplify billing with job costing
  • ‌Handle scheduling logistics
  • ‌Track skills and licenses‌


Many staff members are unsupervised in hospitality, so you need a transparent way to track hours across locations. Look for time and attendance systems that will:

  • Monitor different employee types and location
  • ‌Biometric clock for an accurate clock in/out
  • ‌Compliance tracking to prohibit wage and hour violations
  • ‌Trade boards allowing employees to pick up extra hours or swap shifts


Scheduling in healthcare can be especially challenging because of the additional regulatory compliance to maintain high-quality patient care. Your payroll timekeeping solution should:

  • Track care provider certifications
  • ‌Schedule by departments and/or shifts
  • ‌Ensure compliance with FLSA and ACA
  • ‌Trigger alerts when employees fail to show up
