Stratustime Review

Why stratustime?
stratustime combines a wide range of time-tracking options and features with an easy-to-use interface and excellent customer support. It costs $4 per employee, per month. There is also an installation and implementation charge based on the number of employees you have.

Time Tracking
stratustime from nettime solutions has the features businesses of any size would want in a time and attendance system. It tracks all of a business’s time needs, including when employees come and go, when they take breaks, how long they work on certain projects, and how much paid time off (PTO) they’ve accrued.
Besides recording the total hours employees work each day, the system has a job-tracking tool that logs how long employees work on specific projects. This can be valuable for employers, such as IT consultants or law firms, that bill clients based on the hours employees spend working on their tasks.

The system can also manage PTO. It tracks accruals, allows employees to request time off, and lets managers approve or deny those requests. In addition, employers can use stratustime to generate schedules for individual employees, departments or shifts. Besides designating when employees should start and end their shifts, the visual scheduler lets managers add in when breaks and meals should be taken. You can also click and drag schedules to copy them from employee to employee for quick assignment.
Cost
The base fee for stratustime is $4 per month, per employee. Included in the base fee are all the time and attendance tracking features, the scheduling tools, employee self-service access, and a variety of labor analytics. There is a $50 minimum charge per month.

Some of the more advanced tools come with an additional cost. Among the features businesses may have to pay extra for – starting at 25 cents per employee, per month – are PTO management, mobile access, automatic alerts, job forecasting, advanced reports and a point-tracking system, which keeps records of when employees are absent or late. Although there is typically an extra charge for these features, several of the sales agents we spoke with when researching the system said they would include these tools for no added cost.
Ease of Use
Since stratustime is cloud-based, there is no software to install or maintain it, and it can be accessed online from anywhere. The only hardware that you may need are time clocks; however, those aren’t required to use the system.

Small businesses will appreciate how straightforward stratustime is to use. Besides the simplicity of clocking in and out, the system’s online portal is just as easy to navigate. In addition, the interface was the best we found while analyzing time and attendance systems.
