Compare time tracking software


In order to compare time tracking software products we need to find out the point which could serve as the criterion for actually conducting this comparison. In order to start the effort we will outline and clarify some initial conditions that form up the pool of products which we will compare below. The software we compare initially satisfies the following conditions:

  • Job – this is a program for professional (business) use, allowing to parameterization and measurement of a workflow whether of a project or daily business activity as being divided into particular activities (tasks, goals, etc) planned in terms of their durations, start and finish dates, etc;
  • Realtime – this is a multi-user program providing users with possibility to communicate in real-time regimes (instantly), so that information is delivered, updated and shared immediately. This could be reached via using client-server technology working within company’s LAN;
  • Automatic – this means that a tool features some “smart” capabilities such as inputting formulas for automatic calculations (on durations of jobs, working hours), or sending automatic reminders once some tasks are procrastinated or are close to their due dates;

Due to a great diversity in business industries and work-styles, such task time tracking software should enable taking a suitable methodical approach to work for prioritizing tasks effectively, and meeting deadlines consistently in order to provide an excellent service or product. Once the initial conditions are defined let’s state that the focus of our effort to compare the products is professional orientation of their functionality:

This also fairly refers to Client server packages to be used in any business or industry, so that users can use it to track and calculate average or effective time utilized for serving their customers, and find ways to better this KPI;

Legal – such software should provide capabilities not only for business case management, but also for sharing and systematization of electronic law documents (created in a format of MS Word, Excel, PDF, etc), and also attorney time tracking software should support collaboration between actually the attorneys (senior law specialists) and their paralegals (assistants on different questions) in terms of controlling statuses of legal cases and tasks.
