Our Contractor Timesheet and Payroll App
Our Contractor App - NESF Time – is available for Android and Apple Devices. It allows candidates to easily submit their time and receipts from wherever they are in the world via a mobile device.
The app has streamlined and automated our processes, eliminated the need for paper and this electronic interaction also offers an audit trail which improves security and reduces the risk of fraud.
- The contractor gets a customised view tailored to them and enables them to submit their time without printing out timesheets. Clients can then approve their time with just one swipe.
- If clients choose to, they can also drill down into the record for further information on the app itself.
- Contractors can also submit their expenses via the app, by taking pictures of their receipts on their phones and uploading them in just a few clicks.
Contractors who are instructed to do so can download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
