We try to keep up on our close competitors, I think all businesses do. We're happy to go head-to-head with any of them. That's what makes capitalism so grand. The time and attendance software market is certainly a volatile one. Here's a recent case that illustrates the point. The company using the websites www.punch-clock.com, www.lionclock.com, and www.lion-clock.com was found guilty of trademark violation and forced to surrender these domain names. The former owner of these domains, LionClock Software, is currently in bankruptcy court. If you're a current LionClock software user, please take a look at our free time clock software trial. I think you'll like what you see. After all, we've been doing this for 25 years now.
Time clock software vendors seem to be a dime a dozen, but not all time clock software programs are created equal. The old adage "you get what you pay for" definitely applies here. LionClock claims to have been around since 2001, which may or may not be true. That doesn't seem to matter to the companies that are calling us frustrated because their LionClock software no longer works and the company isn't responding to their frantic requests for help. With scenarios like this (and this isn't an isolated case), save yourself a lot of time, money, and frustration by doing a little research to find out who's behind the time clock software you intend purchasing. Any legitimate company shouldn't be afraid of chatting with you about their history and background. Here's a big hint. If the only way to contact them is via email or an online form, do yourself a favor an go on to the next company, no matter how inexpensive their time clock software is.
Here's to another 25 years!
