Geofencing Adds Pinpoint Accuracy & Efficiency to Mobile Time & Attendance for Remote Employees

For Time Rack clients and Thomson Reuters Accounting CS Payroll users with a remote workforce, managing employees in the field has never been easier.

Geofencing ensures that remote employees are working where they should be without being able to abuse the time and attendance system by clocking in from their couch.

How Geofencing Works

Step 1

Under Clock Management > Mobile In/Out page, click on the checkbox “Use Geofencing?”
