Why is software based time tracking better than good old Excel time tracking?
You might be wondering why Project Timer’s time tracking is better than the good old fashioned Excel time tracking. Well, here are some great reasons you should consider the switch.
Start a timer with the press of a button
No more looking at the clock all the time. Simply hit our button to start timing a task and then hit it again to stop if you’re finished or want to take a break. Some software will begin a new task every time you hit the start button, others will let you add more time to an open task after you’ve stopped timing. This will increase accuracy in billing and will make estimating work time a thing of the past. Time tracking is precise and always up to date.
Create easy time tracking reports
Time tracking software will help you to be more efficient by storing your timed task connected to your client and projects. You may also add descriptions of the task. Forget trying to remember what happened to all your hours at the end of the day or week! These tasks are archived and then you can retrieve them when creating reports weekly, monthly, or during a customized time period.
When working on team projects, I would highly recommend using software that supports team time sharing online like Project Timer Cloud. Team members can sync their projects to track their hours even when away from the office you can report time afterwards. Reports can then be created with everyone’s billable and non-billable timed tasks. No time is wasted gathering information…the data will always be updated and ready to go…just print or send it!
Excel vs Project Timer
Don’t be stuck in the dark ages of spreadsheets and manual entry. Modern technology is making mundane tasks quick and easy! For those that want to spend more time working for their clients and less time sifting through data and making reports, time tracking is the answer!
