We pay our employees by time, we bill our clients by time. Our vacations are tracked by time. All successful businesses know how to manage time! Our businesses revolve around time, and our success comes from using that time wisely. 

Why is time so important to a business?

The best way to get started with efficient use of your time is time tracking. Nowadays, time tracking takes place on the web, and with a good time and attendance tool, employers will have access to:

  • Identify tardy employees
  • Job costing
  • Overtime management
  • Automated payroll file creation

How much time do you waste?

  • Correcting math errors on timesheets
  • Tracking down late timesheets
  • Manually entering employee payroll data

With the correct time and attendance tool, these tasks are simple. There are tools and software such as Hour Timesheet available to make life easier, and eliminate worry about how much time you might be wasting. Let technology do the work for you!

Most small businesses use QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Desktop to process payroll or create invoices. There are several fields in QuickBooks that you might want to have employees capture time or hours worked against.

Customer Job Data 

This is by far the most relevant piece of data you might need when billing your clients. Knowing how much your workforce spends on your clients helps you to understand your resources and plan your bottom line.

Service Items 

These are another data point that companies capture on the employee time data. QuickBooks will tie these items to a chart of accounts which become a building block for your business.

Payroll Items 

These are another source of data that are important to understand when you require your employees to capture time entry either online or by phone or on the web. The pay type (also known as payroll item) is used when importing time to various leave types, overtime rules as well as hourly vs salary pay.

Now that your timesheets are complete, the ideal solution is to sync or export your employee time card data to QuickBooks. Hour Timesheet is integrated with QuickBooks to do just that!
