Issues before using Timesheet Xpress...
Prior to their use of Timesheet Xpress,John Fletcher Consulting recorded time and activities on spreadsheet based timesheets and paper systems. This methodology relied heavily on the basic ability to remember to first of all regularly fill in timesheets and secondly the detail required to insert useful & measurable information. Often the information input was at best ‘sketchy’ as it may have been collated from a number of sources including small reminder note-lets or even sticky pads. Reliance on Diary Management was critical to end of month billing and reports for clients.
“I love and get engrossed in my work – but I don’t love daily journals, it wasn’t filled in routinely, it was a chore” says John Fletcher
Since using Timesheet Xpress...
Having implemented Timesheet Xpress 2 years ago, if requested by clients, John Fletcher Consulting can now easily issue instant timesheets in PDFs for details on project work and how things are progressing. The biggest advantage for them are the reminder prompts set for every period of time that's required for detailing.
“The task reminder feature helps prompt me to get things done if I get distracted by calls or other issues which might crop up during the day. I have an accurate daily, weekly and monthly record of my work” Says John Fletcher
Another big advantage to using Timesheet Xpress is that it gives an overall update on rates of efficiency and productivity.
