Geofencing is a mobile timekeeping feature that enables companies to use a predefined geographic boundary around a worksite to assist employees in logging their time accurately. Admins can set up desired geofencing parameters on select worksites to lock down clocking in and out to specific locations, log worker geolocation data, and give employees and visual indicators if they enter time outside of their geofence. This feature will launch as a private BETA. If you are a customer who currently utilizes our Deliver module and want to use Geofencing, please reach out to your Crelate Representative to learn more about this exciting new feature.
