Jason is the owner-operator of a medium sized auto repair operation running out of Fair Haven, New Jersey. While the majority of his work is done at the shop, he does offer a mobile mechanic service which is starting to take off really. The busiest time of the day for call outs is between 3 pm and 6 pm on weekdays. Up until recently. Jason had been collecting timesheet data from a biometric punch clock he had installed in the shop. The problem was that the staff member had to be physically present to clock in and out. After these roadside assistant callouts, the mechanic would have to drive all the way back across town to the shop to clock off for the day when it would make much more sense to have him take the van home and clock off after the repair was complete.
This is where SINC comes in. Staff can now clock in and out directly from their mobile phones, no matter where they are. Their location data is recorded while on a shift, and this is data Jason can go back and check any time from any device.
At the end of the pay period when it comes to tallying up all the punch times, Jason no longer has to do the maths of converting times into decimal hours for payroll processing. Nor does he need to calculate paid and unpaid breaks from the totals. SINC does this all for him, and in the click of a button, a report is sent to his email with all the details of that pay period, including any notes that were left during shifts or photos of completed jobs that he likes his mechanics to upload after each task is signed off. When returning clients come back, he can easily see who was working on their vehicle and what the job looked like when it left the workshop.
The time savings achieved after implementing the system are a game changer. Jason now has more time to spend chasing up old invoices and looking for new business. His payroll costs have also been reduced due to the precise nature of SINC, and the added accountability GPS backed, digital timesheets bring to his company.
