Desktop and Web Application Overview
The AccuTimeCard™ application is a timecard 'on steroids'.
Unlike traditional timecards, which are
vulnerable to fudging and deliberate fraud,
the system requires the worker to punch in and out in real-time, so that these times are
always accurate. In addition, the employer can verify that the worker is present at their desk
and truly working their project, because the system records
frequent images of
the worker's computer screen
(and their webcam if you have optionally chosen this). This gives
employers the confidence
that their worker is truly only billing them for time they worked.
And it also allows vWorker.com to enforce the
employer money-back guarantee and the
worker payment guarantee on this type of work.
Here's how the entire process works:
- Employer selects worker:
The employer posts their
project, and selects the worker they want to work with.
To begin work, they escrows the funds for the timecard (which spans one week).
- Worker does work and logs time:
The worker proves they are working in good-faith by logging their time through the
- Employer supervises worker through the AccuTimeCard™:
The employer can supervise the worker's progress
to prevent fraud earlier and provide guidance.
Employer reviews the AccuTimeCard™
Once the timecard period (a week) ends, the timecard is automatically submitted to the employer for their review.
If it is legitimate, they approve it. If there is fraud, they receive a refund.
Note: timecards are only used on Hourly projects. For more information on Hourly (and how it compares to fixed-price), click here
