July 20, 2009 in Software
[prMac.com] Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - How do you create a more efficient time tracker? How do you provide simple to use tools, so folks can focus on their work, instead of trying to track their time? OfficeTime's time tracking software has answered these questions by listening to the people using their application. OfficeTime's version 1.5 for Mac and PC is easy to get started, offers dynamic live reporting and provides quick, customizable invoicing.
If the process of tracking, reporting and billing clients is slowing down your productivity, then you're wasting time not working on billable hours.
"Prior to OfficeTime I had to keep extensive notes and write them all up to attach to my invoices. Now it's there and waiting for me at end of month." - Jean Oksner JSO Ltd., in Phoenix, AZ
Taking suggestions from the OfficeTime community has made this time tracking software more efficient. By listening to their requests, OfficeTime has added over 250 community improvements since version 1.0. Here is a sample of how OfficeTime makes better use of your time:
1. Track and multi-task multiple projects simultaneously
2. Quick and flexible reporting with over 18 different summary reports
3. Sync up with iCal, so you can see your day at a glance
4. Cross-team reporting with per employee summaries and breakdowns
5. Makes billing a snap, with customizable invoices and self-populating fields
OfficeTime version 1.5 offers two dozen improvements and fixes that fine tune this world renown time tracker, as well as to increase data safety. The software even warns if your data file accidentally ends up in the Trash/Recycle Bin.
It's the suggestions and requests of actual OfficeTime users that make this time tracker stronger with each release.
"What really made all the difference was that I wrote with my requests and suggestions, and they wrote back! Not only that, but in time they did implement a number of the features I required. Particularly important for me was the ability to track several projects simultaneously, since the nature of my work allows me to do that." - Alejandro Araujo of GB Advisors
OfficeTime listens to their customers' concerns and addresses them. And, repeatedly, customers remark about how they increased their billable hours:
"OfficeTime really helped change the way we look at time accounting: instead of being busy with accounting for the time we spent on projects and achieving a complete and accurate accounting report, we can actually spend our time *working* on projects! OfficeTime keeps track of the time spent and has the intelligence where users need it." - Vincent Ossewaarde of Fortytwo in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Media Press Kit
OfficeTime was created by a busy web and applications development firm, needing to track its employees' time. When they couldn't find a full featured, easy to use tracking application, they decided to build the OfficeTime time tracking application, a time-tracker based on real-world business needs (with a zest for clean design and a usable interface).
