Abaqus, Inc., a provider of the first-of-a-kind allGeo cloud-hosted location and messaging platform, has launched its new allGeo Mobile TimeClocking™ service that allows mobile workers and contractors to clock in and out of job sites for better payroll management and to improve workforce accountability and productivity. The service can use basic geo-tagged text messaging and IVR check calls to deliver time & attendance information and supports any phone on most US wireless carriers without any installed application, special phone, or changes to a company’s service plan.

“For years we’ve struggled with inefficient time tracking systems. allGeo has provided us a consistent means to track labor hours by job for effective payroll services. The support team is extremely helpful, consistently providing support and tailoring their system to our specific needs.” Said a representative of Raider Painting Co. “allGeo has made Raider’s hour reporting and payroll efficient and has helped us control labor costs.

Our customers typically report a 10-20% increase in productivity and a 5-10% reduction in operating costs after adopting the allGeo service.”

  • Allows employees and contractors to log-in and log-out of job sites via geo-tagged text messaging and IVR phone calls
