Introduction

The employer app allows small business to track attendance and generate time reports of their employees all using one single android phone. This app turns a mobile phone into a walking console – employees check-in on the phone, and check-out on it.

Unlike other digital attendance apps which require multiple phones, or have a ton of features most businesses don’t need, the employer app is an intuitive and practical solution for all small businesses who need to track hours or days attendance for their employees.

The employer app works in a very simple manner. Employer creates an account with the app entering basic details of his business, an email address where he wants weekly, biweekly or monthly reports to be sent to and details of his employees. Each employee is identified by a code that he has to enter to checkin or check out. Everytime an employee starts work, he checks in using his code, and when he leaves work, he checks out from the app. The app does rest of the work by calculating the number of hours each employee worked and sending report of that right into the employers email. In the email, the employer can see how many hours/day each employee worked and right there generate the amount of money that he needs to pay by entering the hourly or daily pay rate.
