QRC Technologies Uses Timesheet Software to Ensure Total Compliance with Federal Requirements
San Mateo, CA, December 8, 2010 — QRC Technologies has teamed up with the world leader in web-based timesheet software to increase the efficiency of its employee time-tracking and provide more detailed project documentation to federal clients.
Developing cellular hardware and software for the United States government, QRC uses Web TimeSheet from Replicon to comply with requirements of the Defense Contractor Audit Agency (DCAA), the audit agency of the U.S. Department of Defense.
With the ability to track time and expenses toward projects and generate reports in real-time, Web TimeSheet allows QRC to provide highly accurate project details to its clients in just minutes.
“Replicon lets me make sure – and demonstrate – we’re fully performing on contracts the way we’re supposed to,” said Tom Callahan, Vice President of Engineering at QRC Technologies. “Without it, that would be much more challenging.”
Until a few years ago, QRC employees tracked their time and attendance on paper. This was not only time-consuming to maintain, but also, it didn't meet DCAA guidelines, which required contractors to provide all information electronically.
QRC quickly found the solution it needed with Web TimeSheet Time & Attendance Edition and Web TimeSheet Project & Billing Edition. Integrated into one seamless system, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions gave employees and managers a much simpler means of logging time, tracking hours and expenses on projects, and reporting for internal purposes or auditing procedures.
Plus, with a SaaS-based solution, QRC would not have to devote IT staff resources to upgrades, server space or security concerns. Instead, Replicon hosts the solution securely on its servers and rolls out updates as they are available. Since the software is web-based, employees at QRC's two offices in Columbia, Maryland, and Stafford, Virginia, can enter their time into a single online system.
“Government contractors today are facing increasingly strict compliance regulations, especially when it comes to project documentation,” said Raj Narayanaswamy, Co-CEO of Replicon. “Web TimeSheet ensures that QRC can quickly provide its clients with highly accurate project information, supported by real-time data.”
In Web TimeSheet, employees keep detailed records of time and attendance, with all time tracked against either billable projects or general work – all of which have different billing rates connected with them. QRC easily creates dozens of project codes, and adds new ones as needed, to keep track of the exact time that employees spent on specific contracts.
To ensure enough detail for DCAA audits, Web TimeSheet also requires employees and contractors to use the comment field in the timesheet for all of their activities. Callahan customized a number of built-in Replicon reports to pull the exact information he needs at the click of a few buttons – giving him reports the same day.
In the event of a DCAA audit, QRC has the numbers and corresponding notes in a single place to provide to auditors. It’s simply a matter of exporting the data in the format the agency needs.
