“It’s easy to lose track and get confused of hours worked and what pay is due, especially if you have multiple jobs, numerous contracts and no idea what payday might hold.I’d record my hours in notes on my phone, in notebooks…The employee tends to rely on the employer not their own personal record when it comes to pay and they have no idea if the figures are right, you just have to settle for it. I wanted to improve the system for everyone paid hourly.The app is an easy way to track work hours, breaks and pay, manage money and organise work-related ‘bits and bobs’ like contracts, payslips, certificates and even gives a section on basic employee rights.It’s also getting harder for businesses to keep an accurate record of staff activity too, especially in sectors where employees are increasingly working off-site or in multiple locations.”

“My aim is to improve the employment system for zero hours workers. I hope to use the traction of the employee side, work together with the users to make the system better, then get employers on board to create a ‘go to’ platform for employers and employees. Eventually including a digital clocking in system.”
