In view of the national labor aspects, governed by the Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT) and by specific directives of the Ministry of Labor and Employment (MTE), it is expected that, for a fair working day, Brazilian employees should have up to 44 hours a week, with the surplus being transposed as "overtime". For companies that have ten or more employees, it is mandatory to note this course and the overtime and, for this record, the entry and exit times of the work must be recorded for each employee. These records can be made by means of handwritten notes in company property point books, by the use of mechanical register clocks that record the time on paper cards and even the use of electronic point clocks that perform the entire registration digitally, filing them in inviolable memory. Despite the unique characteristics that each type of watch has, it is evident that the electronic register has much to add to the companies, since this data can be easily integrated with other systems, thus automating processes of legal verification of this journey. The main benefits of this automation are: reducing the risk of fraud and erasures in the registers, frequent control of the workers' journey, reducing overtime costs and organizing information for the occurrence of hour bank. It turns out that many companies, especially companies engaged in agricultural activities, do not have infrastructure for the use of Electronic Registrer Clocks for all employees, since some of them can carry out their activities in places that are deprived of energy supply and network. essential for the operation of this type of equipment. Understanding the characteristics of this segment and the state-of-the-art technologies available in the market, the objective of this project is to study and develop a mobile device that is capable of meeting the needs of several rural properties as well as other professionals who work in field, and for this reason, they are not able to register their journey by electronic and / or fixed register clocks. In addition to the device, will also be developed an online platform that will perform the synchronization of the records and data generated. Through automated capture of this data, it will be possible to generate individual and consolidated reports, as well as the remote registration of collaborators in all REPs compatible with this technology. For the development and management of this project will be used the Agile methodology, which has as main characteristics the fragmentation of the project in several deliveries and the parallel development of all the stages for each of them, different from waterfall development methodologies that provides the complete development of the solution in asynchronous stages. As a key result, this development methodology avoids (or eliminates) refactoring, allows errors and shortcomings to be discovered as soon as possible, and is amenable to scaling throughout the project, further aligning the solution to the intended market.
