    Jibble: time tracking that's truly different

    I’m Asim Qureshi, CEO of Jibble, and a former Vice President at Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse.

    Listen, I didn’t leave all that behind just to build another time tracking software! Jibble is truly different, and I’m going to tell you why in most cases, choosing Time Doctor over Jibble simply doesn’t add up. Let me briefly give you an overview of why your team needs to be jibbling, not time-doctoring… not only because it rolls off the tongue way better, but because Jibble offers you so much more.

  • Why seek Time Doctor alternatives?

    Explore better time tracking solutions

    Time Doctor is marketed as a comprehensive solution for time tracking and employee monitoring for improved productivity. On a conceptual level, I’d say that it’s brilliantly designed, but its real-life usage tends to lean in the opposite direction.

    One of the most concerning things about Time Doctor is its susceptibility to track time inconsistently, which can happen due to the timer stopping mid-session because of a glitch, a disruption in Internet connectivity, or when syncing between devices causes users to lose valuable hours, and therefore earn less than what they’ve actually worked for. This is not just alarming but also very unfair to employees and may cause friction and messy labor-related legal struggles down the road. 

    For employee monitoring, Time Doctor uses a productivity tracker that measures user activity by the number of keystrokes and mouse movements over a certain period of time. However, this is a mistaken view that does not account for work that happens off-screen. In addition to that, it also captures screenshots and webcam photos and records URL and app usage, which users find to be invasive of their privacy.

    Another reason why you should choose a Time Doctor alternative is the instability of its mobile apps, which are quite clunky, malfunction often, and need a whole lot of work to be truly usable. Its desktop and web apps aren’t spared from bugs and glitches either, which severely affect user experience quality. 

    To cap it all off, Time Doctor does not have a free plan, and its paid plans are on the higher side of the pricing spectrum.

    Why choose Jibble?

    It’s your best choice as the ultimate Time Doctor alternative

    Jibble is a reliable time tracker that focuses on time tracking instead of the bells and whistles because we want to be the best at what we do. Divided focus, like with Time Doctor, results in compromised functionality. 

    Jibble is built on clean architecture which means it has significantly fewer bugs than Time Doctor. This translates to a more stable product, both on desktop and mobile. This is reflected in our highly reliable time tracking functionalities that have earned us the love and loyalty of tens of thousands of customers all over the world.

    We also believe in empowering employees by respecting their privacy. We do have a screenshot monitoring function in the works to help identify distractions, promote accountability, and facilitate communication. Still, it’s just a complement to our features that allow you to focus on the tasks and projects at hand. We do not subscribe to the effectiveness of the Big Brother levels of scrutiny that Time Doctor subjects their users to, and we firmly believe that before implementing any screenshot monitoring features, employers must first communicate clearly to employees how it is leveraged to enhance transparency and how data is collected and utilized.

    Jibble is also the better choice for freelancers and on-site workers, unlike Time Doctor which is mostly geared for desk work with regular hours. And best of all, we offer a 100% FREE alternative to Time Doctor that won’t cost your business a single cent!

    Lower Pricing Structure

    Significantly bigger savings

    Time Doctor has four paid plans that have feature packages curated to serve progressively more complex business needs. Prices start at $5.9 per user per month for the entry-level Basic Plan, go up to $8.4 per user per month for the Standard Plan, and rise to a hefty $16.7 per user per month for the Premium Plan. Prospective users with enterprise-level needs can get the custom-priced Enterprise Plan.

    In sharp contrast, our 100% free forever plan adequately covers the needs of most small businesses without costing them a single cent, and is available for unlimited users. While that’s enough for quite a lot of happy users, they can have even more power by upgrading to the Premium plan at only $2.49 per user per month for enhanced time tracking capabilities with detailed reports and overtime calculations, and our Ultimate plan is only $4.99 per user per month for limitless time tracking with project and client-based tracking designed for teams that require advanced time tracking features. 

    When you choose Jibble as a Time Doctor alternative, you’re going to save a lot of money while enjoying a comprehensive suite of features, because even our priciest plan costs significantly less than Time Doctor’s entry-level offering!

  • Track time on 3 devices

    Track time from anywhere

    On mobile, desktops, laptops and tablets

    Work doesn’t just happen on your desk, so you gotta have multiple options for time tracking from the comfort of the office to the rigors of the road. 

    With Jibble, you can clock in and out of work using our web app, track time straight from the browser tab you’re working on with the extension, on-site with a shared kiosk, or with mobile apps for Android and iOS when you’re out and about. Unlike the clunky Time Doctor apps that are prone to malfunction, our mobile apps are feature-rich, stable, and truly reliable for work on the go.

    When you choose Jibble as a Time Doctor alternative, there’s no more reason not to capture every minute of working time, no matter where you may be. Have the confidence to go where work takes you, or take work with you wherever you go… even to places where there’s no internet connection!

  • GPS and face recognition on mobile for attendance

    Next-level technology

    With face recognition and GPS tracking

    Facial recognition ensures that only authorized persons can access the system by comparing the facial features of the person clocking in with the facial landmarks on the profile photo for the account stored in the system. Any possible mismatches are flagged, thus providing heightened security for your business. GPS tracking on the other hand ensures that managers have visibility of their team members’ locations throughout the workday, which is essential for accountability and safety. 

    While both Jibble and Time Doctor have facial recognition and GPS tracking, Jibble’s edge is in our highly accurate geofencing technology that restricts clock-ins only to authorized areas. Time Doctor only tracks employee location — and quite poorly at that — but does not prevent them from checking in from outside geofenced locations.

    Together, these features help eliminate buddy punching and other time theft shenanigans that may be draining your resources — yet another reason to choose Jibble as a Time Doctor alternative.

  • JIbble is easily accessible via MS Teams and Slack bots. Track project time without leave MS Teams or Slack.

    Use Jibble to track time within MS Teams or Slack

    ...because Time Doctor only tracks one of them

    MS Teams and Slack are essential fixtures of the modern workplace, and Jibble allows you to track time directly from both of them. Take your time tracking experience to the next level by revolutionizing the way you manage work hours. 

    You can track time from within MS Teams and Slack directly, and with ease. With just a few clicks, managers can see who’s in and working on which projects, and gain visibility on progress as it happens — in contrast to Time Doctor, which only tracks time within Slack.

  • online timesheet

    Automated timesheet calculations

    …and streamlined approvals so payroll is never late

    With Jibble, timesheets are updated in real-time with data tracked from user activities. Worked hours, breaks, and overtime are automatically categorized and populated into timesheets, which are then auto-calculated according to easily configurable rates. Jibble saves you a lot of time (and money!) by doing all the heavy lifting and number-crunching.

    All that’s left to do is for employees to verify their entries and once confirmed correct, managers can approve them for payroll. The best thing about it? They can do all of these using only one app from anywhere and on any device! 

    This smooth and efficient automated process ensures that payroll is on time, every time. And if you ever need additional calculations, timesheets can be exported in CSV or XLS formats to your payroll and accounting software, or use the open API for even more possibilities. 

    Now, to be fair, Time Doctor also does the same thing, and even integrates with Paypal Payouts, Gusto, and Transferwise to process payments all from in place. But the accuracy of the timesheets is highly dependent on the accuracy of the time tracker as previously discussed, so that’s something to think about when reviewing the timesheets generated by Time Doctor.

    Real-time visibility

    …so you never miss a thing

    Time Doctor does a fair job of recording screenshots and webcam captures, who clocked in or out when, what sites and apps they visited and used, how productive their computer usage is based on the myopic criteria of keyboard and mouse activity, and more. While these are great for a deeper understanding of employee behavior, they can be overwhelming. And for most use cases, these don’t really matter much in driving productivity as we’ve previously discussed. 

    With Jibble, we like to keep things simple, and we stick to the essentials. Real-time entry recording with Jibble means that you have a clear and up-to-the-minute picture of your work. You also gain real-time visibility into your team’s presence, absence, or leaves, and access essential time entry details such as entry method, device usage, locations, check-in selfies, and flagged entries.

    Most importantly, you can see the progress on projects and tasks as they happen so you can be in charge of any situation at any given time. This means you can address areas of improvement with ease and ensure that bottlenecks aren’t stifling productivity. With that much power right at your fingertips, you’ll always be on top of everything that goes on in your business.

  • Customize work schedules to be fixed or flexible

    Comprehensive Scheduling

    Customized work schedules for seamless operations

    Aside from time tracking and timesheet calculations, scheduling is also a crucial part of keeping your business truly organized and productive. Both Jibble and Time Doctor offer features to help you create customized work schedules that adapt to dynamically changing business needs.

    But Jibble’s edge over Time Doctor is its ease of use according to highly satisfied users on GetApp, Capterra, Software Advice, and SelectHub. If you’re choosing a Time Doctor alternative, it only makes sense that you get something friendlier to use, easier to set up, and has more recommendations by real people who have experienced the difference.

  • Applying for leave with Jibble

    Seamless leave tracking

    Something that Time Doctor doesn’t have

    Scheduling works great, now what? Now you have to ensure that your team members are getting the time off they deserve so they can be at their best. This also helps your business remains compliant with state and federal leave legislations.

    Here at Jibble, we understand the importance of leave management for precise time tracking. That’s why we developed an integral and dedicated suite of time-off management features to streamline requests and approvals, which Time Doctor doesn’t currently have.

    Jibble’s PTO tracker is not only free but also incredibly user-friendly. Employees can apply for various leave types that managers can approve in a matter of clicks on any device. No more chasing signatures and awkward negotiations for well-deserved time off!

  • Attendance analytics

    Powerful reporting and analytics

    For data-driven decision-making

    Good reports are the backbone of great business decisions. That’s why it’s important to have access to analytic tools when you’re managing a business. Especially when you have dreams of making it big.

    Time Doctor has a variety of report templates that can be filtered in various ways, but they don’t quite have the same customizability as ours, which is another reason why you should look for a more comprehensive Time Doctor alternative. Jibble allows you to dive deep into productivity and attendance reports to analyze attendance patterns and time allocation so you can identify areas for improvement. Explore detailed data, from clock-in locations and device utilization to selfie captures and offline entries, all at your fingertips.

    Engaging visual charts and insightful reports dive deep into the data to give you a clear view of how projects and tasks are progressing, how productive teams and individual employees are, how much resources are spent to achieve your goals, and how to best address challenges that pose a threat to productivity.

    Best of all, our reports are highly customizable and can be configured to unique analytic structures for unique business needs so you can see the data you need in the way that makes the most sense to you. These can also be exported as CSV or XLS files for further processing and even more power.
