Mobile-friendly time tracking software promotes punctuality and boosts morale, as employees are given responsibility over their own timekeeping, enhancing feelings of empowerment and autonomy.

Some employees are so committed that they regularly work more than is required of them. But this can lead to burn out, which in turn can lead to health issues, absence and, at worst, high turnover. Time tracking apps help you control this and maintain your team’s work-life balance.
