Issues before using Timesheet Xpress...
Prior to their implementation of Timesheet Xpress, MedSense recorded time and activities on spreadsheet based timesheets. Each month someone was left with the unenviable task of analysing all projects with regard to the number of hours spent on client project. When collating the information, there were many issues – including simple things like different abbreviations used by various staff for the same client/project work – this made comparisons of logged time difficult to compare. A big area of concern was budget “over runs” where a job may exceed the cost budget allocated to it.
Since using Timesheet Xpress...
Since implementing Timesheet Xpress, MedSense has now been able to record time spent on jobs for clients in a consistent way which is done in a very quick and easy method which allows the Directors to check on real time updates to client project progress and staff productivity.
“Timesheet Xpress is exceptional when it comes to helping understand if projects have been accurately priced, allowing the business to run as efficiently as possible.” says Marian East, Director of MedSense
