Easy clock in/out and breaks

Seven convenient ways to track attendance with all kinds of breaks (billable and nonbillable) like lunch or personal time: web browser, mobile app, iBeacons, QR codes (KIOSK), API, Slack, and other integrations.

Project time tracking

Employees can track time spent on particular projects (from web, mobile app, and slack) so you can get reports for payroll with the number of hours worked and project names for a given employee or team. It’s also often used as a customer billing tool.

Abuses notifications

Calamari notifies you and creates reports about late arrivals, early departures, unexpected absences, and other misdemeanors, so you can optimize team’s performance and increase project profitability.

All time tracking in one place

Track time both for full time employees (especially if it’s required by law) and contractors, freelancers, and part time workers. It’s the best tool for quick and mistake-free data gathering of online payroll data for remote teams


Clock in directly from Slack

Start/stop & take a break

Your employees don’t even have to use a web or mobile app – they can clock in/out and switch between projects through a convenient Slack integration. They can also request time off directly from Slack.

Work schedule reminders

Get notified about the planned start and end of the workday. Managers can also receive notifications about all kinds of timesheet abnormalities regarding starting and ending the workday.

Timesheet approval

Appointed managers can approve or reject entries, changes, and breaks in a timesheet.

See team availability in a channel

You can publish a channel with team attendance so that everyone can check if their colleagues are available.

Real-time notifications

Print QR codes or use mobile app

Easily distribute QR codes to clock in/out (no need to order cards, badges). Know when employees are in the building or office in case of an emergency.

Prevent buddy punching

If needed, the application can take and save photos of employees during code scanning on entrance, leave, or break that will be visible to the manager in the timesheet.
