5 Employee Time Tracking Tool Fees To Consider

Upfront Licensing

Some time tracking tools require everything up front, while others charge subscription fees. For example, you pay a flat rate every month and there are different plans to choose from. The first step is to calculate your budget, then research the popular pricing models. Weigh the pros and cons for one-time licensing versus monthly subscription. There are also free options, but they often have limited features and you need to pay to unlock the full version.

Software Setup

Once you choose the right employee time tracking tool, it’s time to set everything up. This involves downloading the app and customizing the settings. There’s also the small matter of employee adoption. How much time does it take to master the new time tracker app? Keep in mind that this requires payroll hours and time away from their regular work duties. This is why it’s so important to find a platform with customer training resources and support options, like tutorials that walk staffers through the entire process, including how to use the timers and access features.


Certain hour keeper apps have optional add-ons that don’t require additional fees. However, some charge extra for these integrations or upgrades. Ask vendors about what’s included in the package and how add-ons can benefit your business. In fact, mention this in your RFP so that they have a chance to address it in their proposals. For instance, they can list all their integrations and real-world uses.

Employee Payroll

I’ve already covered payroll costs associated with front-end users. But what about all the back-end tasks? As an example, all the time it takes to research employee time tracking tools, vet vendors, and create RFPs. These are activities that dig into your software budget. Granted, they help you avoid buyer’s regret and find the right tool without trial and error. Another expense to consider is free trials. They may be free, but it still takes payroll hours to evaluate the software firsthand.


You absolutely need employee buy-in. And the only way to get it is in-house marketing. Unfortunately, this also impacts your profit margin. That said, promoting software ensures that your team will actually use it instead of just letting it sit idly on their desktops. Prep them weeks in advance with live events. Announce it in the LMS and let them join the free trial. All these activities earn a place in your budget.
