How It Helps

Workyard tracks each team member's driving activity and assigns miles and travel time automatically whenever they arrive to a geofenced project. This allows you to work out the efficiency of your team or what to charge your client based on how much mileage or travel time was used on a particular project.

How It Works

The first step is to create a project for the location. That's all it takes to begin tracking mileage and travel time automatically for projects! When a team member drives to the project while clocked in Workyard, miles and travel time will be automatically assigned.
