ShopClock is a small business time card application published by Pacific Rim Software Inc. ShopClock4, our flagship app is very easy to setup and use and works well for most small businesses. ShopClock4Plus adds department and shift tracking (so employees can be paid according to which department/shift they work). Both versions can manage (and accrue) vacation, sick, and PTO.
ShopClock4 runs on Windows Vista Pro, Windows 7, and Windows 8 Pro, Windows 2003 and newer Servers.
ShopClock4 is very easy to setup and use, and is perfect for organizations that do not pay department or shift differentials. In fact, departments are optional and do not even need to be used. However, if the Departments Option is used, each employee can be assigned to a department; the reports can then be run for a particular department and holiday hours can be assigned by department.
ShopClock4 uses the same payroll items (Regular Hours, Overtime Hours, Vacation Hours, Sick Hours, etc) for all departments. And, the settings for tracking Paid Breaks, Unpaid Breaks, and Lunches apply globally to all departments, as does your choice for handling missed clock outs.
In ShopClock4Plus setup is more involved, but you have much more control. We moved all the break and lunch tracking options to the department level. These settings can now be different for each department. All of the payroll items (used when the data is exported) can be set at the department level.
Plus each department can have up to three shifts. Because ShopClock-plus knows when the shifts begin and end there are more time clock options such as “SnapTo”, “Rounding”, “Supervisor - Time Card Approval”, and “Grace Periods”. Because the companies using ShopClock-Plus tend to be larger than those use ShopClock, ShopClock-Plus has features like “multiple password protected supervisor accounts”, and a complete audit trail.
With ShopClock4Plus setup is more involved, but you have much more control.

For administrators, the videos have tables of contents and are searchable and the ShopClock4 menu contains more traditional screen shot and text pages.
