Employee time tracking

Hey, all. I tried to look for an already-established thread on this topic, but the search function seems to be broken right now and the first ten pages of this sub-forum don't have any related threads.

Anyway, what do you use to track your employees' time for the day? We have about 5-8 employees, depending on the season, and so far we have had them just write down their time in and out on time cards. Lately, though, we have been having some issues with generous rounding-up of their times and some outright falsification. We want to switch over to a punch time clock, hopefully something simple and durable, since it will be sitting in our dusty shop getting banged around by the employees.

What do you guys use to track employee time?

We also use SAP, but there are many basic smartphone apps that will track time for you. Very easy and accurate.

That's what we had. Each crew leader had a clock. You have a clock in and out on your key chain.

Once awake you scan every clock with a handheld and it will allow you to import into the computer
