Choosing Timesheet Software For Your Business

Jul 17, 2008
Choosing timesheet software can be a daunting task. It can be especially tough if you are working from home on computer. It can be difficult to keep your billing hours straight, or what your project costs are. This is what good timesheet software can do for you. It will automate the process and keep track of billing hours for you.

There are a wide variety of timesheet software packages available today. You should do some simple research to find the package that best fits your needs. Here are a few things to think about when looking for good timesheet software:

Keep an open mind: You want to go into the process with an open mind. Prepare yourself for all the advertising hype you will be bombarded with. Keep an open mind and look past the hype.

Is a demo available? Most companies provide a demo package of their software. You want to make sure you try any software package before you buy it. The demo software should be a full demo with all benefits of the software available for you to try. Often, demo software has some options turned off. You do not want to bother with software demo's that do not allow you to fully test them. The demo should allow you to use your information to test with. It is important to test the software with your data. You should also make sure the demo offers enough time to fully test it. Some demo's only offer a few days to test. You need enough time to fully test the program. If a full demo is not offered you should shy away from the software.

Is support offered during the demo? Software support is extremely important. You should test this support during the demo process. This is when you will learn if their support is going to be helpful or not. Do they offer phone support? Some companies only offer email support. You should strive to find a company that offers phone support. Real time, live support is worth its weight in gold. If you purchase the software how long will support be offered? Length of support is very important. Full support should be offered long enough for you to become very comfortable using the software.

Is the timesheet software web enabled? This may not be important to you. For some, it is very important. The ability to access the timesheet software over the Internet and from a different computer maybe very important.

Cost: Affordability is a very important factor. You should think about how much is too much for a good timesheet software package. You should remember how much production will increase with a good time sheet package. Billing hours should also increase. The old adage "you get what you pay for" also comes to mind.

These are a few key things to think about when looking for a timesheet software package. Choosing the right timesheet software can save you a great deal of money and time. Remember, "Time is money, and knowledge is power".
