Time tracking in the construction and services industries has had a rocky history. Nonetheless, it couldn’t be more important. To improve accuracy in accounting, contractors are increasingly turning to software solutions like Sage coupled with HH2 app integration, over the paper methods of the past. Sage Intacct, Sage 100 Construction, and Sage 300 CRE are incredibly popular and offer an array of basic time-tracking functionalities. 

Not all single systems are perfect. They leave some gaps that translate into possible delays in accounting, inefficient employee time-tracking, and discrepancies on time cards. That's where working with hh2 comes in as the solution to traditional timekeeping and tracking.

Third-Party Add-on Time Tracking Apps 

Although Sage enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions come with strong capabilities, it's crucial to grasp their inherent constraints. Luckily incorporating supplementary tools like hh2's Remote Payroll and Document Flow, can augment Sage’s capabilities and streamline time-tracking processes.

Sage CRE Features Paired With hh2

Some of the added benefits of hh2 apps are:

  • Advanced Project Management: hh2's solution offers more advanced project management tools, allowing for detailed project tracking, resource allocation, and task management that can be integrated into the time-tracking process.
  • Enhanced Reporting: hh2 offers specialized reporting features that go beyond what Sage's app provides, offering deep insights into project profitability, cost trends, and resource efficiency.
  • Multi-Platform Compatibility: hh2's solution is compatible with a wider range of platforms, enabling cross-device and cross-platform access for employees and managers, not to mention, being cloud-based means accessibility everywhere, all the time. 
  • Automation and Integration: hh2 offers more robust automation and integration capabilities, enabling businesses to automate repetitive tasks, sync data with other software, and reduce manual efforts. Time-tracking and payroll are a breeze.
  • Customization Flexibility: hh2 provides businesses with greater customization options, allowing them to tailor the app to their specific needs and industry requirements.
  • Customer Support and Updates: hh2 offers easy access to customer support and makes frequent updates to address emerging needs and challenges, ensuring the software remains up-to-date and relevant.

Other Gaps in Sage’s Time Tracking Construction Management Software

It's important to have efficient construction business time tracking. Time management software is only effective if it is saving you time and resources. Contractors and Foremen not only manage construction projects, but have to juggle laborers, keeping track of the time they work, the time they need off, and where they will be working. That is more administrative work than any Foreman wants to be doing. Sage ERPs aim to mitigate those admin tasks that are time-consuming and tedious.

Payroll Approval & Job Costs

From owners to payroll managers, getting all the right approvals for time cards and invoices can be a headache and can cause bottlenecks. Hh2 has an advanced workflow, which is an approval path built into the app that allows passive approval options. 

Project Management Time Tracking

You might have different time-tracking needs for different groups within your organization. For example, you might need to track the location of certain workers while others work in the office. hh2 provides Multiple Time Entry Methods to meet the needs of all your teams. 


Cloud-based systems like hh2 bridge the gap between having to upload information on the spot or later. This means no data is lost and you can conduct business no matter where you are. 

Delegation & Automation

Contractors need to upload expense-related documents on the go and delegate tasks to workers who are able (like keeping track of their own time cards and vacation requests). Hh2 gives you total control over who you give permission to do what, including delegating tasks that you don’t need to be burdened with. Automating processes like payroll, accounting, and paystub availability lightens everyone's load. 

Certified Payroll

If your company is part of public works or projects funded by the federal government, adhering to government regulations for Certified Payroll is imperative. Unlike many other mobile construction timekeeping apps, hh2 Remote Payroll excels in meeting the demand to assign prevailing wages to job classifications, ensuring seamless compliance with WH-347 weekly submissions. 

Why hh2 Time Tracking Makes Sage Even Better

With seamless integration and a myriad of enhanced capabilities, hh2 acts like a super booster for your Sage ERP. Check out some of the other features of the hh2 apps:

  • User-Friendly Interface: The app has an intuitive user interface, making it easy for both employees and managers to navigate and utilize its functionalities without extensive training.

  • Compliance and Security: The apps include features to comply with labor laws and industry regulations, safeguarding sensitive employee data.

In the realm of construction management programs, Sage's Time Tracking software has its merits, offering user-friendly features and integration capabilities. However, it's important to recognize that no one-size-fits-all solution exists. Third-party apps like hh2 can play a crucial role in filling the gaps that businesses might encounter, offering advanced functionalities, enhanced reporting, and greater flexibility through customization.
