New York, NY (PRWEB) October 07, 2012
Detailed employee time-tracking data is critical to any business that bills clients by the hour. While there are a number of web-based and desktop apps designed for this purpose, most are overly complex, too expensive for small businesses or vulnerable to human error. Innovative web development firm Dolphin Micro has attempted to bridge the gap between manual time-tracking methods and cost-prohibitive software with the launch of web-based Hours Tracking (http://hourstracking.com).
Based in New York and Colorado, Dolphin Micro has spent the last four years delivering cutting-edge web solutions to clients ranging from local entrepreneurs to multinational corporations. Now the company is leveraging its team’s technical and start-up expertise to build and support its first web application, Hours Tracking.
“We built Hours Tracking because we weren’t able to find anything out there to meet our own time-tracking needs, especially at a price that was affordable for a small business,” explains Dolphin Micro CEO Eric Scott. “Our premise in developing Hours Tracking was that it had to be easy to use in real time, while the work is being done. No scraps of paper. No forgotten entries. For administrators, it needed to provide quick, easy answers to common questions about time. It needed to speed up the process of searching for, filtering, and exporting the data needed for invoicing, billing, and more detailed analysis.”
After extensive internal testing, Hours Tracking became available to the public in May of 2012, and was met with enthusiasm by early adopters that included digital publisher Condé Nast Studio.
Business manager Laura Risley explains the benefits: “We used to use a big collection of Excel sheets to track time. They were hard for employees to use and a nightmare for me to distill needed information from. Hours Tracking simplified everything. Everyone actually uses it without badgering, I can quickly run reports to answer budget and billing questions, and my custom exports have cut my monthly payroll reconciliation from around seven days to under eight hours.”
In addition to Hours Tracking’s ease of use, Dolphin Micro expects the product’s affordability to distinguish it from similar online services. While many competitors reserve advanced features for their highest-paying subscribers, Hours Tracking users enjoy the product’s full feature set and unlimited scalability for just $1 per user, per month.
Hours Tracking offers a free 30-day trial. More information is available at http://hourstracking.com.
