LionClock is an attractive, easy-to-use virtual time clock. Employees will find it simple and intuitive to use, while managers will enjoy its robust administrative features.
LionClock's interface is sleek and well designed, and the built-in Help file is thorough and well written. Virtually everything about the program can be mastered in minutes. It's easy to add and edit employee information, for instance, and it has some helpful extras, such as automatically calculating base pay, gross pay, and overtime for each employee. You can assign employees personal identification numbers, ensuring that they're clocking in and out securely and allowing them to view their own payroll reports for any pay period they select. The administrator functions allow managers to run a variety of reports, including payroll reports for individual or multiple employees. LionClock can also be synchronized with both QuickBooks and Office. We were most impressed with the 12 levels of security the program offers, which is sufficient to prevent employees from starting or closing LionClock or other programs without authorization. Overall, we found LionClock to be one of the better payroll programs we've seen; it's not fancy or complicated, but it delivers useful, intuitive features in a package that's easy to use.
LionClock is free to try, but the trial version limits users to three employees. The program installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. Nonetheless, we highly recommend this program to anyone looking for a better way to track employees' time.
