Without a doubt, the right web-based timesheet & expenses service will allow a business to significantly streamline their employee and invoicing process
(PRWEB UK) 22 March 2013
The invoicing process for recruiters or project-based organisations has traditionally been a tricky affair, since mountains of paperwork that is hard to keep track of is naturally involved. To do away with this issue, Timesheet Portal suggests that companies consider switching to invoicing software, which effectively allows all related paperwork to be digitally stored online and accessed at the touch of a button.
Currently, a number of timesheet & expenses software providers are offering their services on the marketplace, however understanding which one will be the most effective and fuss-free can be a confusing differentiation to make.
For this reason, Timesheet Portal has set out to highlight the most important factors to look out for when choosing a web timesheet & expenses service.
Ease of Use
As a given, an invoicing software service should provide workers with simple tutorials so they can get started immediately. They should also be able to easily customise their timesheets to suit the company’s needs and access the web-based data 24/7 from any location in the world.
Fuss-Free Approval and Payment Process
Employees must be able to submit their timesheets and expense forms online for single or multiple approval signoff. To keep the admin process efficient and transparent, email notifications should be automatically sent when invoicing is submitted or reviewed, and workers should have full access to view when they have been paid. Leading software will even allow workers to submit their timesheets via text message.
Effective Resource Management
When a business is undertaking a major project, managers need to know the availability of their worker resources at all times. The right software should allow a business to run reports instantly to see when employees are on leave and manage leave allowances, while workers need to be able to easily submit requests for holiday/sick leave. Furthermore, managers should be able to extend the usefulness of timesheet data to tracking project/ job costs by having charge-out and employee rates easily to hand.
In addition to the importance of a business conveniently being able to customise their timesheets (such as being able to track them by time, hour or day), it is crucial to choose software that can be integrated with a company’s other platforms so that the entire process runs smoothly.
Director of Timesheet Portal, Michael Gois, concluded: “Without a doubt, the right web-based timesheet & expenses service will allow a business to significantly streamline their employee and invoicing process. But without the right software solution, the benefits will barely make a dent in improving on the traditional paper route. Using the tips above, we hope that companies will be better armed to choose a service that can deliver the full rewards.”
