About Tímavera

Tímavera is a time tracking system that uses employee's smartphones to clock in & out in a timeclock app.

The system has two parts:

Owners or managers get a company account to the website where a good overview is given for the number of hours clocked per employees and projects. Reports with simple overtime calculations if needed are offered on the websites. New users and projects are created on the website.

The app

In the upper left corner is a cog icon that shows the settings screen. In the upper right corner is a triple equals icon that shows employees their time entries.

The problems Tímavera is designed to solve:

  1. Similar solutions are often more complex with too many features.
  2. No extra equipment nor a physical setup is required. Simply website access, employees use their own phones
  3. The system displays employee geo-locations (if enabled by the employee) when they clock in and for what project. Ensures transparency for clients, employers and the employees.
  4. Employees can write comments to work log entries. For example if an employee forgot to clock in or out, if any material was bought, and so on.

The time tracking system is in active development. We have and will always prioritise simplicity, functionality and reliability.

Images can be uploaded while an employee is clocked in. Common use cases:

  • Project work in progress images.
  • Photos that document and prove if unforeseen circumstances arose. For example if more work is required than anticipated by a contract which might lead to additional fees.
  • Proof of proper work completion. Useful in the event of a dispute or where other contractors ruined your work.
  • Images of invoices as a reminder to which project it belongs so that the extra expense is charged correctly and not forgotten.

Full Control

Managers can grant select employees an extra permission to manually add or edit time entries in the app. Useful for a workflow where the day's work is entered in at the end of day or to correct time entries if they forgot to clock in our out.

About the company

Tímavera ehf. was founded in May 2017 by four Icelanders: two software developers and two master painters who were the first users of the system. Finnbogi and Jón Hafdal had both operated their own painting businesses for years, but were not satisfied with the time tracking systems they were using. Ólafur built the first iteration of the website and then he recruited Jón Rúnar to build the mobile app. Word spread and other contracting companies joined in as they saw their needs met in a simpler system.
