Best Time Tracking Software
Time tracking software enables workers to either passively or manually track their time spent on projects, tasks, and other deliverables. This software is used by employees and employers in many industries and helps small- and mid-sized business (SMB) owners stay organized and up-to-date in managing their employees’ times. Time tracking software increases productivity in employees because it allows for accountability, helping to discover which activities or events cause time wasting, and keeps all time data in one location. Ideally, time tracking software can tweak discrepancies in workflows to fix what is and isn’t working in order to increase profits and automate companies’ payroll and billing operations. Many time tracking software solutions work with workforce management software, encompassing human resources, payroll, and talent management tools. Time tracking software can be integrated either directly into time clock hardware or deployed in the cloud.
To qualify for inclusion in the Time Tracking category, a product must:
- Integrate with existing accounting or third-party payroll software.
- Track, report, and calculate time and work usage.
- Analyze work performance and generate reports and invoices
- Export data into an invoicing tool.
- Scale according to size of company, team, or project, or to individual freelancers
