User Guide

Welcome to TimeGuardian!

Amano TimeGuardian is workforce time tracking software for small business. Replace your desktop software (or paper timecards) with an easy-to-use cloud-based solution. Comes complete with features you need to track your employee hours for payroll.

Get started

To get started with TimeGuardian, register your company for a free 15 day trial. You will have free access to all our features. If you like, employees can clock in/out from any desktop or phone browser.
