Citadel by Chronologic – Is it worth it?

The citadel team has become overtly aware that a lot of the news articles that appear on this site talk about the clocking options with Citadel, reasons why clocking is good for your business, or ways that you can improve your clocking data.

But if you’ve not yet signed up – we need to answer the most important question first. Is Citadel worth it? The money? the set-up? All of it.

Although we of course think yes, we’re going to outline our reasons so that you can make the decision yourself.

Clocking options

The first thing we want to highlight is the multitude of clocking options with Citadel. Not only via the terminal (which offers PIN, fingerprint and card) but through web clocking and our free smartphone app.

Best of all, whatever option you choose, you can mix your methods – clock in via App and out via browser, and our system won’t even blink.

More information about our Clocking options

Offline functionality

No internet connection? no problem.

Just get your employees to clock and when you next reach a secure internet connection your data will be transferred to the cloud.

This is a unique feature at Citadels price-point, means employees who often work away from one set location can simply pack the terminal and go.

More than a clocking system

Citadel offers all of the below – on top of its accurate reliable employee time and attendance system.

Department transfer

Easily transfer to departments throughout your business to ensure employee hours are accurate and that you can report on set projects/departments.

Multiple overtime rates

You have unlimited overtime rates to fit your business needs, you could set daily, weekly, weekend, seventh-day and much more.

Your employee’s clock in and out, and the system calculates the rest for you, based on your rules.


Enjoy user-friendly reporting that covers everything from pay periods to absence and labour costs.

Stop time theft and unauthorised overtime

Add your pay restrictions based on employee start and end times. Employees late? they won’t get paid for it. Early? the same.
