MTime

Moso Graphics

When their off-the-shelf timeclock app broke beyond repair, Moso quickly hand-rolled a web-based replacement. The replacement was a workable solution but in no way a permanent one. Rather than adapt their business to fit existing third-party software, Moso commissioned me to develop MTime.

Just like a traditional punch-card device, the UI runs on a single terminal in the shop. Once they’ve clocked in for a shift, employees get a clear readout of the hours they’ve logged per shift per day. Moso’s administrative staff can access the same data by means of a private interface for viewing, editing, and exporting employee reports per pay period.

I met their minimal requirements with a custom MVC app and a utilitarian design, both of which lay the groundwork for future revisions.
