your company’s needs so you don’t select a system that is too advanced


Has your company outgrown Excel and post-its?

If your company needs a clear picture of how many hours the employees use each month on specific tasks, projects and customers, it might be time to look at a time tracking system.

When you have just started your business, Excel is often enough for both time tracking and project management.

But soon your company starts to grow. I get more colleagues, your services advance and you must be able to take action quickly and in an agile way. In this case, many experience the Excel sheets as a limitation.


Excel sheets are a limitation

It is time consuming to get 15 employees to enter information into an Excel sheet. You need a tool to measure project performance across projects, and just getting the colleagues to track their work time is cumbersome.

Now, a system for time tracking and project management enters the picture.

We help you clarify which system is right for you with just 5 simple questions.
