Both products are part of the TimeControl family. TimeControl Industrial includes everything that the regular TimeControl has but adds modules and functionality to extend TimeControl in ways that are more appropriate for construction or industrial situations where end users will not be filling in their own timesheets.
Imagine a situation such as a construction site where there might be hundreds or even thousands of workers in the field working on our project today. They are all managed by supervisors and may even have a time and attendance system to make sure they get paid properly. But, management is having a terrible time trying to figure out what the exact cost of each project tasks is. Yet these carpenters, welders, pipefitters and drivers aren’t expected to sit down at a PC and fill out a timesheet. This is the world that TimeControl Industrial was designed for. TimeControl supports high-volume entries by supervisors or data entry clerks who enter the timesheet data in crew timesheets on behalf of the employees who have finished their shift.
TimeControl Industrial is popular in industries like mining, heavy construction, utilities and infrastructure operations. The additional modules in TimeControl Industrial include:
- Crew timesheet entry
- Non-Labor entry for materials, equipment and production accomplished entry
- Extended Labor Rates
- Extended Non-Labor Rates
- Crew Management
- Crew Approvals
- Non-Labor Approvals
