Why another timesheet app?

There are a lot of apps and websites that help you keep track of time.

For most of these the use cases vary slightly. Many are for an independent contractor wanting to keep track of their time so that they can properly charge their clients when the job has finished. Some are more of a employee manager relationship which is where mine fits in.

One of the apps I've seen is called FotoPunch. FotoPunch looks very professional and well developed. It also costs a lot. Timesheet by TengenT LLC is catered to the average small business owner. The point is to save money and find a happy medium between manual labor to enter the information and an automated system that doesn't cost a lot.

Timesheet focuses on the most important features.

1) Manage time accurately.

  • Employees use the simple UI and can the system takes care of recording precision.

2) Data in usable format

  • The app makes it easy to export a timesheet between any date range. It auto calculates and summarizes the most important information.

3) Built in safeguards

  • The system automatically checks for inconsistencies and flags these behaviors. For example, if the employee should clock in and out in the same place, the shift will be flagged if this does not happen.

4) Cost effective
  • As mentioned above, the focus is to make this a more cost effective option. So it will be priced below other alternatives.
Who would benefit from this app? What features would you want to see?
