How web- and graphic-designer Stefan Asal uses Xpert-Timer

Interview with Stefan Asal, owner of DataCreate Asal

The DataCreate team, based in Todtnau, has been active in the field of web design and graphics since 2003 and cares for numerous customers, from craftsmen, tourism professionals, service providers and amusement parks to clubs. The Xpert-Timer has been in use at DataCreate for project time recording since 2016, and recently also in the new version 7 with improved performance and numerous innovations. 

Pay attention to the entire workflow  

Together with his customers, Stefan Asal plans, realizes and supports their websites from the first idea through design to activation. DataCreate Asal operates as well the portals Schwarzwaldportal.com, mein-bodensee-urlaub.de and Welt-der-Ferien.de. "A typical general project starts with the design of a screen design", explains Stefan Asal. “After the planning interview with my customer, I send the draft to him. His feedback will then be considered accordingly. In the Xpert-Timer I have the advantage that I can map the complete timing of the entire project until the homepage is activated”, says the owner Stefan Asal. DataCreate also designs stationery, brochures, flyers, business cards or advertising materials such as labels for its customers. In the graphics area, Stefan Asal has customers for whom he designs food labels, for example. Due to the changing legislation, small changes are often necessary here, he reports. “Sometimes a wording just has to be adjusted. These services only take up little time, but are of course still time-consuming. With Xpert-Timer I can record the times for such services exactly or round them up to the time units previously defined in the Xpert-Timer and show them transparently to my customers." For billing the recorded times to the customers, a PDF can be created directly via the Xpert-Timer software and sent to the corresponding customer by email.

Quick change between projects via the time bar

“The automated time tracking with the time bar in the Xpert-Timer saves me a lot of time because it enables a quick change between the projects and I can therefore easily record the times. I also keep an eye on important data with the time bar. The intuitive and flexible software convinced me right from the start in terms of on-the-minute and transparent time recording”, says the web designer, who is also happy with the support in case of tricky questions: “If I have a more complex problem, I ask the very competent and friendly support for help."
