What was the circumstance that led you to Office Timer
3 years ago SkillNet struggled with completing customer invoices on time. As Senior Director, I was entrusted to find a solution for on-time customer invoicing problem. After the initial study, it was observed that timesheets of employees who work on various customer projects were not filled and submitted on time. As a result, customer invoicing was getting delayed.
We set up 8 point criteria for evaluating various timesheet solutions. Ease of use, configurable to meet unique business needs, ease of adding new customers to projects, the simplicity of creating timesheet reports with a few clicks, straightforwardness in applying for time-offs, and enforcing time-off policies. Use of past timesheet data to prepare new project estimates cost and tech support.
After evaluating 10 shortlisted timesheet solutions Office Timer came on top. We are using Office Timer from 3 + plus years, and we are happy that we made the right choice.
