Many small businesses today are struggling to manage complex, ever-changing labor requirements. Solutions that are generally available in the market are specifically designed for enterprise organizations, requiring significant monetary investment and staff to implement and administer. On the other end of the spectrum, the solutions that small businesses can use do not have the feature set to handle complex business needs, especially around time tracking, scheduling, and labor optimization.
Addressing this gap in the marketplace is Swipeclock with WorkforceHub – an agile, flexible, and responsive HR tech solution.
"It has the features small businesses need while still being quick to stand up and very easy to use. We fill that "just right" tech need for small-business employers," said Coleman Barney, who has been Swipeclock's president and CEO since 2014.
WorkforceHub enables HR managers to get what they need and then go back to what really matters. It covers all mission-critical needs, including time and attendance, employee scheduling, PTO management, benefits management, HR records, applicant tracking, onboarding, employee experience, and performance management.
"In addition, we have intelligent biometric employee time clocks that sync with WorkforceHub for those seeking physical timekeeping solutions," Barney said.
WorkforceHub is intentionally designed the way a small business works – it's quick to implement, with transparent pricing. The tool also enables employers to efficiently manage their mission-critical HR processes. With varied applications, WorkforceHub has customers in all market sectors, where small businesses are facing complex needs such as home health care, manufacturing, hospitality, construction, and retail.
For instance, on the healthcare side, WorkforceHub allows managers from home health companies to track the time worked and the location where each aide clocks in and out for shifts.
This ensures the employer pays an aide correctly while complying with ever-changing federal, state, and local labor laws.

The solution is also equally effective in a health clinic setting, where managers must ensure that employees with the necessary skills and licenses are scheduled for the correct shifts to offer quality patient care.
With the WorkforceHub Scheduling tool, they can build multiple around-the-clock schedules with the required job skills, shift coverage, and employee-patient ratio. More importantly, advanced reporting ensures compliance with FLSA, ACA, and Payroll-Based Journal.
Further, the WorkforceHub applicant-tracking tool allows seamless hiring and onboarding. It also automates pre-screening, which accelerates initial evaluation and saves time for both administrators and hiring managers.
"Just as importantly, our mobile-friendly platform, customizable applications, and auto-communications create an exceptional candidate experience," Barney added.
Having carved a unique niche through its WorkforceHub, Swipeclock will continue to stay laser-focused on the complex and multi-faceted needs of small businesses.
"We help frontline supervisors and leaders get essential tasks done – efficiently and quickly. And we will never lose sight of our mission," Barney said.
The company is excited to expand its business intelligence capabilities. This will enable the frontline staff and small business leaders to have access to key insights into the business, which will be instrumental for them to make proper adjustments and optimize decision-making based on crucial labor data. In addition, they will be expanding performance management features as well as mobile app capabilities with text notifications and other workflow enhancements.
"Our customers love WorkforceHub, so we know we are on the right track. We continue to look for ways our solution can help with scheduling complexities, including for those in primarily virtual environments," Barney concluded.
