5 good reasons why project time recording should be used in the company
Exact cost calculation
Of course, experience plays a role in calculating a flat rate for a project. Nevertheless, you should document the time spent on this project and check in the recalculation whether the flat rate was profitable. The more people work together on a project, the more difficult it is to keep track of the actual working hours for the project. A project time recording that works in the network is perfect for this. Every colleague has access to the software and can quickly and easily record the times.

Focus on productivity
Do you have the feeling that you are simply not making progress with a project because you are constantly being interrupted at work? Telephone calls, meetings, questions from colleagues: all interruptions that hinder you in your project work. You can document such interruptions with project-related time recording. The easiest way to do this is by using a keyboard shortcut to quickly switch between activities or using a favorites list. At the end of the day you can then see exactly how much time was actually available to work on the project. Identify your time wasters and try to optimize your workflow.
A task list whose tasks can also be started and stopped at the push of a button is of course also very practical. You can use it to structure your day, store an estimated duration for each task and at the end of the day check whether you are well placed with the estimates and make adjustments for the next day if necessary. The tasks should be categorized and prioritized in the task list to make it easier to work with.
Do you work on a trust basis?
Weekly working hours are agreed in your employment contract, but you work on the basis of trust-based working hours. So that means that the traditional time clock does not exist in the company. If there is a dispute about these weekly working hours, you are on the safe side if you have documented your working hours despite trust-based working hours. A brief note of when you started to work and a brief note of when you finished the work day. Of course, it is also an advantage if you also document which activities you have carried out. So you can document exactly what you worked and when.
