We never take money from vendors during our research phase and rely heavily on practitioners and experts to help us recommend the right software.

In addition to free payroll, Timetrex features a time and attendance tracking tool. Tracked employee hours are automatically linked with payroll, eliminating admins’ need to make manual payroll calculations or import data from 3rd party sources.
If you’re looking for a free workforce management solution, TimeTrex’s open-source Community edition is worth checking out. The Community edition packs several features at no charge, including payroll processing, HR management, employee scheduling, time and attendance tracking, as well as leave management.
The TimeTrex Community Edition is exclusively cloud-based, accessible through web browsers. The platform does offer a mobile app and on-site services, but you’ll need to upgrade to one of their paid plans (i.e. Professional, Corporate, or Enterprise) to use them. Contact TimeTrex’s team to learn more.
TimeTrex has a support forum where customers can post questions and receive answers from other members. Paid plan customers can also email TimeTrex’s support team if further help is needed. Hands-on, professional support services are also available on-demand and are purchased by the hour, or in blocks of five hours at a discounted rate.
While TimeTrex is completely capable of processing payroll without needing a 3rd party solution, it does give its users the choice to integrate it with other accounting and payroll vendors such as QuickBooks payroll, ADP, Paychex, Ceridian, and Sage.
TimeTrex’s Community edition is free of charge, supported by a network of volunteers from over 50 countries. TimeTrex also has 3 paid plans (i.e. Professional, Corporate, and Enterprise) that offer more features including job costing, GEO fencing, document management, invoicing, expense tracking, and applicant tracking. Contact TimeTrex’s sales team for more information on their paid offerings.
