Time trackers are convenient, and can provide significant benefits when it comes to tracking payroll, hours spent working on projects, or time spent serving a client’s needs. However, there’s a chance that your tracker isn’t living up to its potential. Here are six things your time tracker should be doing for your business.

 

Access to Information: A time tracker should do more than just record hours logged. It should provide you with access to information in an easily digestible format. It should also provide you with the ability to export that information for use in other systems.

 

Custom Controls: Your tracking system should provide you with the means to set custom controls that dictate which employees are able to work with which customers or clients, as well as what types of jobs, projects or activities can be assigned to each client.

 

Custom Reporting: Your time tracker should give you access to granular information, but it should also give you the ability to create custom reports that fit your business’ unique needs.

 

Accessibility: You should be able to record time and access records from anywhere, not just your office workstation. That includes laptops in remote locations, as well as mobile devices.

 

Time Off Tracking: Your time tracking software should provide you with the ability to schedule and track time off, including vacations, sick time, maternity leave and more.

 

Scalability: How many users does your software support? Ideally, it should be able to scale up as your needs change.

Think finding a time tracker that can do all this is difficult or impossible? Actually, TimeWriter can offer all this functionality and much more. We invite you to explore both the standard and professional versions and see which one fits your needs.
