Accurate employee timekeeping data is essential for invoicing, payroll and project management, but many hourly employees consider the process of filling out time sheets an unnecessary burden.
With the recent release of its real-time employee timekeeping tool, Hours Tracking (http://hourstracking.com), Dolphin Micro Inc. aims to help small to mid-sized companies streamline their invoicing and payroll processes while eliminating the need for employees to complete weekly time sheets.
“We knew that in order for a time tracking tool to be effective, it had to capture employees’ hours as they worked,” explains Dolphin Micro CEO Eric Scott. “Most applications we tried encouraged employees to enter their time twice – once on a slip of paper, then into the system later. This method is not only inefficient; it’s also error-prone.”
To address these issues, Scott and his team developed a timer-based application that keeps track of what employees are working on and allows them to start, stop or switch between projects with the click of a mouse. The idea is simple. By tracking employees’ hours as they work, Hours Tracking eliminates the potential for human error while making the timekeeping process faster and less cumbersome for employees.
Project Manager Cooper McGoodwin has experienced the benefits firsthand. “I need to be able to provide clients with accurate budget updates on the fly without having to interrupt my team. Tracking their hours in real time means I have all the data I need at my fingertips any time I need it. And because Hours Tracking is so easy to use, my team members have adapted quickly.”
Since its launch in May, Hours Tracking has begun making a name for itself in the software, web development and creative communities; and its user base continues to grow. Scott expects that as the product gains notoriety, more hours-based businesses like legal and consulting firms will come on board. “This tool can benefit any company that bills clients by the hour,” he says. “It can be particularly helpful for teams that work remotely.”
Hours Tracking offers a free 30-day trial. More information is available at http://hourstracking.com.
