5 Ways That Time Sheets Can Boost Property Maintenance Staff Morale

You might think that you misread the title of this blog post OR that we must be completely off our rockers. Because it’s pretty much a universal truth that no one in any industry enjoys filling out time sheets. However, we believe that the majority of workers loathe documenting their time spent on various jobs because historically it has been a tremendously daunting paper-based task. Imagine at the end of a busy day (or week) trying to accurately recall where you spent your time, what you did there, how long it took and what items were used from inventory.

Web-ready INFO-Tracker™ TimesheetLink™ makes it easy for your property maintenance staff to document time spent, materials used and any issues encountered as they complete each work order. Not only is it a lot less painful for them, but it gives you a more accurate view of the real-time status of each work order, how much resources are required for various jobs and the performance of individual maintenance employees.

It’s important to note that INFO-Tracker™ TimesheetLink™ is more than just a tool for your staff to submit their time sheets remotely. It’s a complete Work Order management system that organizes the scheduling and completion of jobs, provides relevant job details, sends alerts for urgent tasks and keeps property managers up to date on the current status of all work orders.
