Implementing a time tracker in an average company is not easy. Typically employees are quite concerned with such an event, as it is often the case with changing of tried ways. Any manager who wants to successfully install and use a time tracking system in his company should prepare the employees first and show them the benefits of using the software.
It mustn’t be all about micro-managing and restricting freedom, but about becoming more productive, getting more gone and getting paid more. Staff should be able to focus on what they’re good at – their work, not on a time tracker.
A More Dynamic And Flexible Workspace
The advantages of using a time tracker are not always straightforward. When a program you use is simple and user-friendly, you are able to collect a valuable and representative data about the work, processes, projects, and overall efficiency, starting from a single employee and up to the company as a whole. If a project is lagging behind and needs more people to work on it you’ll be able to see it in a very short time, and not when it’s too late. If someone works on the road, or remotely, you’ll not need to guess what they are up to, as you will have a report from the automatic time tracker. This way flexibility goes hand in hand with accountability.
Less Guessing, More Knowing
Using the time tracker for specific projects, jobs, or customers while paying attention to the data collected by the program, allows you to stop guessing about many important parameters of efficiency and productivity, as well as to provide your customers with precise bills with proof.
You will know how many hours of each employee (with their individual specialties and skill levels) it took to accomplish this or that project for this or that customer.
If an employee is overworked or if a project needs more time than it was supposed, it can be fixed in real time, with calculated corrections made for future similar projects. This way the tension between project managers and team members will be reduced as there will be reasonable deadlines set and resources for projects allocated.
An Efficient Employee Is A Respected Employee
A time tracker provides the transparency needed to a manager and teammates without constant checks and interruptions of an employee. When every member of the team understands who else is on the task and where are they. It streamlines workflows organically.
