How to evaluate best time tracking software


Companies often pay their employees on an hourly basis or wait for the project to be completed an give them the amount on a lump sum payment. Often it can be difficult for companies paying employees and freelancers who work on hourly basis as they never know how they are utilizing their time, and whether or not they have been productive or not in the hours they are charging for.

Therefore, companies for this reason seek time tracking software that help in such things. Time and expense tracking software help in determining how many hours a person has worked, how productive they were, and of course what were their billable hours.

The above mentioned things were reasons why companies should opt for such a software, but how do we know which software to opt for and what is better suited? The time tracking software market is increasing day by day, and with the increase in options it is getting very difficult to actually determine the right software suited for your organization.

In this article, we are going to tell you how you can determine which software is the best for your company.

There are many time tracking software that are out there in the market today. But they all provide one with timesheets and at times expense tracking as well. Although, a better software gives its user several other features such as project management tracking, invoicing options, simplified conversions for payments, the ability to integrate in to other apps and work on and off site as well.

As users will be in the management side and may not be as tech savvy as an IT expert, the software should be user friendly, and everyone should be able to understand what they are supposed to do regarding it. If the time tracking software is not user friendly, your employees will be very hesitant to actually use the software.

The ideal software generates the data for you, rather than the other way round. Basically the software should only require the data that the employee has given, process it, prepare reports and sheets and make invoices and bills according to the data.

It should also be able to tell you when an employee has put in request for a time off, and when a particular team member is available for work. This feature will help you set up a proper schedule for projects and avoid burnouts.

So, does your time tracking software does the following? If you’re not sure, find out and see for yourself.
