Time Tracking

What Is Time Tracking?

At its simplest, time tracking refers to how a business measures the number of hours an employee has worked on a shift, project, or task.

It’s primarily used for businesses where the employees are paid by the hour. It’s also often used by freelancers and professionals who charge by the hour.

Granular time tracking allows employees to be paid accurately and makes entire organizations more productive. It also allows for better project management as milestones can be easily viewed and client expectations can be better managed.

With time tracking software, you can ensure that individuals or teams are not over or under capacity.
