Timesheets Go Mobile: Access Your Timesheet Software… Anywhere, Anytime

Time tracking software is the backbone of every company when it comes to recording time and attendance as well as project management. The demand for such software is always increasing and their developers continuously strive to come up with new ways to make it as user-friendly as possible.

The latest innovation in time tracking is software is its integration with mobile devices. Time tracking software developers have devised apps that can be downloaded on different platforms which make time tracking even more convenient. All that is required is a compatible platform and users can take their timesheets on-the-go…anywhere, anytime! These apps are now being released on IOS(iPhone) as well as on the Android and BlackBerry platforms.

So, what are the benefits of time tracking software on mobile devices? The most common advantage is convenience. All you have to do is download and launch the app, enter your username/unique codes given to you and the features of a timesheet are right in the palm of your hands.

A detailed analysis into the features and advantages of timesheet applications on mobile devices reveals that users not only find it convenient, but also find an increased improvement in inventory management, employee management, communication, field services, increased efficiency and customer satisfaction, and decreased waste, downtime, and costs. These advantages are invaluable to any company of all types and sizes.

If you're always on-the-go, it’s convenient to get things done on your smartphone. With a time tracking system app, that’s just what you get. Users can track their time spent on projects, assign tasks and use their phone's built-in GPS to map their activity. These powerful services are perfect for billing clients for time spent on projects as well. Mobile time tracking solutions are increasingly vital business tools because more employees are working in remote locations. Whether they are working in a satellite location or at home, mobile time tracking technology can keep them connected and up-to-date with real-time data. It helps users upload receipts incurred during business visits/travels, and saves time on receiving reimbursements from their company and also saves the hassle of preserving these receipts to submit at a later time. It also works well to send and store documents. So it’s not just the employees but also companies that are growing fond of this form of time tracking, since they are able to keep a close tab on employees who are on-the-go.

Are these time tracking apps only useful for people on-the-go? Definitely not! Let’s say, for example, that an employee has to take a sudden leave from work. It becomes almost impossible for him or her to book their time off for the day unless they’re logged into their office system. But if he/she has their timesheet app installed on their mobile device, they can book their time-off without any hassle and get an approval from management.

Companies too can benefit from such apps. Companies can effectively eliminate several wasteful costs incurred through using paper-based timesheets or costs incurred in installing and running punch time cards. So this development in time tracking not only improves communication between users but also cuts the overall costs of a company.

With all these benefits in mind, it is safe to say that mobile time tracking is definitely the way to go. After all, an innovation which increases efficiency and decreases cost is definitely a winner in everyone’s eyes. And rest assured, at the rate at which technology is advancing, we can be sure that these apps are going to get bigger and better in the days to come.
