If you need to know if employees are working at the correct location, you need geofencing.
What is Geofencing?
Geofencing is a mobile tracking tool that can set a virtual boundary. The virtual boundary is called a geofence. It is based on the genuine physical location.
The Geofence Triggers an Action
Creating a virtual boundary is the first step. The second part is the action that occurs when a connected mobile device (and its owner!) enters the geofence. For example, a monitoring app can send a text to a parent when their child arrives home.
How Do You Use Geofencing in TimeWorksPlus?
In TimeWorksPlus, draw a geofence around a site on a map. Assign employees to the geofence.
TimeWorksPlus tracks their location relative to the geofence.

Dealing With Employee Time Theft?
TimeWorksPlus with geofencing is your solution. Employees can’t clock in when they aren’t in their authorized work location. For additional time theft prevention, use schedule enforcement.
Oversight for Time AND Place
Geofencing restricts out-of-bounds punches. Schedule enforcement restricts out-of-schedule punches. For example, you can restrict employees from clocking in more than ten minutes before their shift begins.
TimeWorksPlus ensures your mobile employees are WHERE they should be, WHEN they should be.
