What is Buddy Punch?

Buddy Punch is a time tracking software that enables you to monitor your team’s productivity, complete payroll processes, and ensure accountability. You can create job codes and locations to see how much time is spent on each task and manage multiple offices. Assigning managers help in responsibility delegation and time card approvals. Buddy Punch automatically calculates costs based on time worked, time off, and overtime. It sends notifications for employee requests and overtime. It also calculates costs for each job, which will then reflect on the time cards. Time worked can be entered by punching in or through manual time duration entry. Buddy Punch integrates with major payroll systems. It is available on Android and iOS as well as on desktop. It generates payroll, overtime, and time off reports to give insight into employee productivity.

Buddy Punch Benefits


The main benefits of Buddy Punch are time tracking tools, accountability, and actionable analytics.

Time Tracking Tools

Buddy Punch offers tools that can track time worked and time off. Employees can punch in through a QR code, facial recognition, or with a username and password. They can choose a job code created for one or multiple tasks and select their location. Managers can approve view time cards and manage PTO, sick leave, and vacation leave requests. Buddy Punch allows employees to view PTO accruals and track their totals. It also sends notifications for overtime and calculates costs based on the total time worked for each task.


Buddy Punch helps you ensure accountability and security. It enables you to create IP addresses, which prevents employees from punching in and out from unrecognized networks. The GPS tracks your employee’s location and enables you to set up a geofence. Buddy Punch can capture webcam images during clock in and clock out to verify employee identity and prevent buddy punching and time theft.

Actionable Analytics

Buddy Punch generates actionable analytics to help you understand your team’s productivity and business costs. Payroll reports detail time worked, employee locations, and department. Detail reports offer work summaries and overtime monitoring. Time off reports enables you to view pain and unpaid time off accruals. You can customize the time duration for all reports.
