Issues before Using Timesheet Xpress…
As with many professional consultants, available billable time is critical to the turnover and ultimately profitability of SAL Account. Prior to their use of Timesheet Xpress, SAL Account used standard spreadsheets in the main to record time spent on customer or administrative activities. The main problem SAL Account encountered was that the spreadsheets regularly had appeared to be completed in different layouts, formats and abbreviations for similar customers or activities were varied among employees.
Having to wade through this information in a variety of formats required numerous hours on a regular basis in order to establish the facts for customers invoices, so the process of billing clients became an onerous task; many hours were spent on a monthly basis attempting to gather ‘accurate’ information. In order to remain competitive with their costs and providing a slick and accurate project management aspect to ongoing client work, SAL Account decided to search for a solution to their internal process dilemmas that would offer them a seamless integration to existing billing procedures.
“... Lots of hours never found their way to the customer’s bill...” said Ruud
Since Using Timesheet Xpress…
Since the implementation of Timesheet Xpress, SAL Account have streamlined their internal administrative processes greatly, not only saving time in the process but effectively tracking accurate information on times spent working with or for clients and ensuring every hour is billed appropriately.
Ruud explained that almost overnight, their company turnover increased by approximately 10% by simply ensuring all hours available for billing actually reached the customers invoice
“We never ever get any questions about our invoices as we send the excellent time and billing specifications along with the invoice, Clients really appreciate theses details as it makes them feel confident about our reliability and provides a great deal of transparency”
From a management perspective, Timesheet Xpress has also provided a great insight to employees and productivity analysis, it allows not only management to see where time is being spent in the business, but also gives employees data that justifies their working time and activities completed for customers. Ruud went on to say,
“It is all about fair-play really ... We can fully concentrate now on our clients’ needs. Timekeeping is no longer a time consuming hassle but a very small and effective part of our daily routine” Ruud Mooi expressed gratefully.
