You’ve probably heard the old adage that “nothing in life is certain but death and taxes.
Non-profit research facilities often rely heavily on federal grants to support their missions. The tricky part is being able to keep detailed records of how those funds are being used. Every expense, including hours worked, must be captured to show that the grant money is being appropriated correctly. Otherwise, the non-profits risk losing their funding altogether.
This was the concern at Seattle Biomedical Research Institute, a world-renowned facility focused on researching infectious diseases. Not long ago, Seattle BioMed was collecting paper timesheets from nearly 300 employees twice a month and tediously re-entering that information, one by one. Concerned that the potential for error could leave the organization open to legal problems, Seattle BioMed took a proactive approach by implementing Web TimeSheet. Now, the organization’s time-tracking processes are 100% compliant, more efficient and worry-free.
