Boomr Software


 

Boomr is a cloud-based time tracking solution designed for mobile workforces to monitor and automate employee work hours, project tracking and overall organizational performance.

In Boomr, each work shift is automatically documented. It offers reports on users’ time, labor and project data which are available remotely and via desktop.

Boomr is suitable for startups, small businesses and companies with hundreds of employees. It can be scaled to meet organizational growth and can also integrate into users’ existing accounting and payroll platforms.

Pros

Needing to be able to track where our employees were when they clocked in was why we tried this out. It worked as advertised. Keeping employees from clocking in off premises is nice as well.

Cons

Would be nice to be able to clock in other than mobile unless I just missed that and you actually can. Also a reminder to clock out would be nice.

Pros

Implementation was so quick and easy, integrated well with our HRIS (BambooHR), extremely affordable, and non-exempt employees may clock in on their app that has a live GPS tracker so you know for sure if they clocked in at work or elsewhere.

Cons

Wish there were more features on the Boomr app. It isn't the most user friendly but it still gets the job done for non-exempt employees to clock in.

Pros

This app is really easy to use and makes it easy for all employees to track their work time. Not all of our employees start at the office each day, so it's easy for everyone to have this app on their phone to clock in and out wherever they may be working on a particular day.

Cons

Occasionally we have come across getting an "error" screen when trying to clock in/out. Usually we just click out of the error screen and are able to complete clocking in and out.

It helps you track your time in the office and be able to create a simple way for your employees to clock in and out.

Likes Least

I wish the app had an option for clocking out for lunch instead of just ending the shift. It makes it difficult to track the full amount of time each employee worked per day. When you have to add two different shifts up to get the time, it makes it easy to have human errors.

Recommendations

This software is a great addition to the company and will help you track your time, and the time of your employees. There are some areas that need improvement, but overall it is a great system.

Employees frequently forget to clock in. Some employees (very few) don't have smart phones and boomr only works on mobile.

Recommendations

Make sure that if you get this service, you have an option like a tablet for people to clock in who don't have smart phones.

This product allows for proximity clock in, meaning that it WILL allow employees to clock in using their own personal devices, but it WON'T allow them to clock in unless they are actually standing in the workplace. This avoids any fraudulent claims to time spent on the clock when really it was time stolen from the clock.

Likes Least

This product does allow for a daily tracking that shows your time spent and what that translates to on your paycheck. However, this product does not allow for a continuous build to those overviews in order to see what your entire paycheck will be. You're forced to select each time frame separately and do the math on your own.

Recommendations

If you decide to test out the system then simply use it side by side with your old system and compare the difference. I wouldn't say to replace your current system with any other system until it's been tested and simply having employees punch in on both is a very easy way to test it. (Assuming you're a small company)

They keep exact time that I'm on work site and I'm able to work without supervisor calling me to ensure i'm at work site. I love that it keeps my hours and calculates my pay so I don't have to worry if I getting shorted. It doesn't use alot of my battery so that is a plus. Also I add work sites in case my supervisor is out of office, which lets me keep times and work sites in sight. Lastly I like how easy it is to use.

Likes Least

I wish it would have a way to put google maps links so I can find the work sites I have to go to. Also wish I could change the hourly rates for each job easier.

Recommendations

Great software and it can only get better. If you need an app that will keep track of your time and give the supervisor a way to ensure your at the correct work site then this is it. I'm sure Boomr will keep getting better.

I work part time and like to keep track of my weekly hours as they vary from week to week.

I find one thing confusing: when looking at a week at a time, it lists my Saturday hours twice -- at the end of the week they were actually worked and at the beginning of the following week.

Recommendations

I think it's great if you need to keep track of errant employees and the locations they are at when they "check in" to work as well as "check out."

The simplicity of the app makes clocking in very easy. Boomr has really helped me and my coworkers have more flexibility at work. Messing with timestamps was too long of a process, everyone was forgetful too. Boomr has made clocking in and out of work easy - tracking pay is very easy as well. Payday is a breeze.

No reminder for clocking out. It is still a new app and needs some additional features, but I'm sure they'll get there soon.

Try it out for a month to see if it helps track hours and payment better.

My hours appear clearly with totals, I don't have to think about anything, all the info is there. I can clock in from my phone if our work computer is occupied. i like that I can add a photo to my profile. App is easy to navigate. The dollar amount I have earned from each shift appears. I can tell at a glance if I am working shorter hours than normal, etc. Overall, Boomr is easy to navigate on ipad or iphone, straightforward and simple. I have enjoyed using it this past year.

Likes Least

It asks me twice if I would like to clock in. It wastes time overall and if you are opening the app you are obviously trying to clock in or out.

Recommendations

Look at every detail with a critical eye. What wastes time? What format do you prefer? etc.

I do not like how I can't change my default hours personally. Whenever I add a time entry, it defaults to 9-5, when I work from 9-6. This adds extra steps when I do time entry.

If it could allow you to check into a job in a "offline" mode and then automatically update once data is available would make it alot easier instead of adding the shift each time.

Payroll tracking has been made super easy. It allows you to see how many hours you have worked, what locations you worked and it tracks the increase from week to week.

Pros

I love how it allows you to track the weekly total hours. This way it helps you to stay up on how many hours you need before you begin to hit the over time wall. It is simple to edit shifts and tell which location you works. I also really enjoy the weekly emails with all the details of hours worked.

Cons

I wish there was a way that it would track your current hours with your clocked hours. When I have 14 hours already on the week, and I am clocked in on a current shift, it doesn't add your current shift hours to the weekly total.

Also, i wish there was an option to add a "Vacation day" to the weekly hours, it would still need to be approved, but it would allow you to see how many hours, including Vacation, personal or sick hours you had for the week.
