Payroll Time Entry App

Enter labour and equipment time directly from the field while it is still fresh.

If you don’t currently have the capability to allow field supervisors to automatically enter or access payroll data from the field, you are adding to the overall labour costs to complete the job. Streamline your operations with the Payroll Time Entry App available through Spectrum®’s construction accounting software program.

What does your Payroll Time Entry look like today?
What could it look like tomorrow?


Gathering employee’s time worked is time consuming and difficult for field supervisors and often consists of a number of different methods. Communicating information back to the office is done via email, spreadsheets, or even phone calls.


  • From the field, supervisors select an employee from the labour screen and enter the hours worked.
  • Only employees assigned to a job are visible, so you don’t have to weed through all employees.
  • If you need to edit a timecard, create a new time card, or assign a work type, you can do that all from the same screen on the app.
  • The application is well designed letting you find or enter the information you want with a few taps on the touchscreen.


Equipment time is recorded in the field, then manually entered at a later date.


Entering equipment time from the field is super simple and quick. Just find the equipment from a drop down list, enter the number of hours and select the phase code.


You don’t have a real-time view of production quantities making it difficult to manage labour productivity.


Use the Payroll Time Entry App to keep up-to-the-minute records of product quantities to determine unit price billing and to understand labour productivity.

Wouldn’t It Be Nice?

Wouldn’t it be nice if your field staff didn’t need to write down labour and equipment time at the job site, then have to go back to the office to enter data into a payroll system? What if your staff could save time by simply entering the data one time right from the job site?

Key benefits of the Payroll Time Entry App Construction Software include:

  • Enter data directly from the job site into the Payroll Time Entry app that is compatible with both Android™ and iOS®.
  • Payroll Time Entry App works with the rest of the Spectrum® Construction Software applications to automatically update information in other applications like Human Resources, Job Cost, and Work Order.
  • Secure access is given to approved employees. An ID and PIN are required to access payroll information.
  • Use apps within Spectrum®’s Construction Software, like Payroll Time Entry, to quickly find information or perform tasks related to a specific action.
