What is ALMobile?

ALMobile is a mobile and web-based time tracking solution, which helps businesses of all sizes in construction, mining, electrical, railways and oil and gas industries automate, track and manage jobs of a remote workforce. Features include payroll processing, activity log, scenario planning, job costing and reporting.

The application offers a grid time entry feature which enables supervisors to overview total time spent by crew members across multiple sites. Employees can use the attendance kiosk to submit clock-in/out time through biometric face recognition and fingerprint authentication. Using predictive analytics, managers can compare actual progress with projected costs, visualize opportunities and track production progress in real-time.

Remote Time Capture

One person's opinion ... this is the most effectively, professionally supported software product I have encountered in my 40+ years of work in the accounting profession.

Pros

This system, in properly trained hands, is most likely the fastest and most efficient time capture facility we could have chosen for our remote personal devices.

Cons

We do not deploy all the functionality available in the system, so do not have much to offer in the "cons" department.

Great Time-Keeping App

The support is AWESOME! First class! They know our team and we know them. You can't put a dollar amount on getting to talk to real people who you know and know you when you have a problem. They follow up and want to not only fix the problem, but understand the problem in order to avoid it in the future.

Pros

The ease of putting in hours to any job. The ability to have multiple job costs and GL accounts to choose from.

Cons

It doesn't have as many standard functionalities as we'd like. Like auto calculating O/T is a cost enhancement, or PTO & Sick accruals... Feels like these items should be standard functionalities since it's payroll related..

Reasons for Choosing ALMobile

We aren't a large company. We needed something that could incorporate with our internal payroll and accounting systems. ALMobile also has a phone app which was important to us.

ALMobile Review

Processing 600+ paper timecards per week was taking too much time, especially on our larger projects. This has made the process more efficient. Austin Lane as a company has also been a pleasure to work with.

Pros

Its ability to pull data from our ERP (Vista) and to run offline without an internet connection. The Grid Time Entry screen and process if pretty easy after a little practice.

Cons

Ad-hoc report interface and direct reports screen freezes or is slow. I would also prefer if approvers could approve using the web client instead of having to switch over to the workstation client. It is also a little confusing for foremen to have to switch to the other time entry screen (if they are using the grid time entry screen to enter time) in order for their crew to sign/approve their own time.

AlMobile time collection software

Software is very flexible and is easy to use. Support is always great. It provides the most accurate method of recording time and is efficient because time is only keyed once. It interfaces very well with our ERP(eCMS from Computer Guidance).

Pros

Flexibility and ease of use. Mobile entry is fast and accurate. The software is easy to deploy on the mobile devices.

Cons

Approval of time can be somewhat confusing at first.

AL Mobile Implementer

Very positive- Support has been great, sales and implementation has been a very favorable experience when compared to other software implementations.

Pros

The people behind the software. They want to help you solve the issue. Very honest as to what the software can and cannot do.

Cons

The reporting. It looks like it comes directly from an MS Access database and you cannot modify the fonts and or look of the report. There is a ad-hoc report writer but again you are stuck with the format. Am used to working with databases that allow you to query the software and create list or cross tabbed reports as needed in the format you like to see.
