    Hey plowsite friends! I have a question regarding time tracking for cash shovelers. Are you guys using any apps or time tracking devices on your 1099 independant contractors? If so what are you using?

    My guys keep logs with time in and out, amount of snow, salt used, etc. Other than that, text or phone calls.
    I'm guessing you're paying your subs by the hour, rather than by the job?

    Most of the shovelers I know already have some sort of GPS device already on their ankle...Just tap into that

    Check out Clockshark, it's easy to setup and use. Not to mention not that expensive. https://www.clockshark.com/

    I paid my shovel crew by the job, they had their own routes which I laid out for them and had them text pics when they were done at site.
