How to beat the Time tracking complexity triangle

Complex Triangle

Making sense of time tracking products

  • When checking out time tracking solutions customers usually look for Ease of use – An intuitive interface that’s easy to get started with and use
  • Flexibility – A highly configurable and powerful system that meets the demands of any organization without too much customization
  • Scalability – Ability to integrate with the other systems like payroll/HR and grow along with organization.

However, more often than not they have to be satisfied with a system that barely meets one or two of these requirements.

  • Usually customers get systems that are just about easy to use and configurable but cannot be easily integrated with existing systems in organizations. Typical examples would be, systems from small players in the time tracking space.
  • On the other hand there are systems that can easily integrate with existing systems and while easy to use, they are not configurable. Examples of such systems would be those from payroll/HR vendors
  • And finally there are systems that are not very easy to use. Examples are in-house systems that are built from scratch without any expertise in the time tracking domain.

Here’s how the complex triangle can be simplified
