Get helpful reminders so your painters never forget to clock in!

When your workers are in the middle of a paint job, it can be easy to lose track of time. That’s why whenever they enter or leave a job site, and at their normal start and end time, we’ll remind them to clock-in and out. And if they happen to forget, they can add a manual time entry for you to review later.

Allow your supervisor to track your painting crew’s time

Painting large properties or doing a commercial renovation requires your crew to work together. Instead of having each painter or decorator track their time individually, your on-the-job supervisor can use Atto to clock in and out on their behalf.

Say goodbye to paper timesheets!

Switch to Atto, an easier and more accurate time-tracking solution for painting and decorating companies.

The old way with paper timesheets
Paper timesheets get lost or damaged outdoors.
No easy way to verify time-tracking records.
Time records often get rounded or “guesstimated” resulting in time wastage and additional payroll costs.
Estimating the labor costs of each job is time-consuming.
Finding out where your crew are and what they’re working on requires lots of back-and-forth phone calls.
Lots of admin time is required to collect timesheets, verify records, and enter them into your payroll system.
The new way with atto
Time-tracking data is recorded electronically, and timesheets are automatically created for you.
Using GPS tracking, Atto can provide daily movement summaries of each worker.
Atto tracks time to the nearest second and allows you to restrict your crew from clocking-in until they’re at the job site.
You can input your crews’ individual pay rates and categorize their work using job codes, so you can see if projects are on budget.
You can log in to Atto and see where all your crew are in real-time.
Time tracking data is verified, and timesheets are generated automatically. All you have to do is input the data from Atto into your payroll system.
