Top 10 Features to Look for in Time Tracking Software

Effective time-tracking software, such as Hour Timesheet, accurately keeps track of the minutes and hours you put into a project. It allows you to invoice your client correctly. It monitors how long individual tasks take to complete. The greater the degree of accuracy you have, the more likely you will be trusted by your clients, which benefits your business. When you understand how you and your workforce spend time, you can analyze it and make smarter business decisions. 

When examining the best time and attendance apps, some of the features to consider include ones such as audit logs.  Having a detailed audit trail that shows a time and date stamp of all timesheet activity can provide valuable insight and assurance that your employees are meeting internal timekeeping policy requirements. 

Another feature is simplicity.  The Hour Timesheet tool includes an easy-to-use interface for both the web browser and the mobile app.  The software is so intuitive to use that rarely will your employees require training making your on-boarding process stress free.
