Time management is certainly not a new introduction to the market. As the world has become more technologically advanced, the need for effective time management software has become stronger. The use of such software is particularly important to a wide range of industries and professions, including consultants, independent contractors, and attorneys. Unfortunately, the first time management software introduced was often bulky and difficult to use. The goal of time management software should be to help professionals track their time quickly and efficiently. In many instances, the ability to bill a project or client accurately relies on efficient time management software.
Today, time management software has evolved to include a robust array of features. Chrometa, for example, offers the ability to track time automatically. There is no need to enter time spent on projects manually. Instead, Chrometa runs quietly in the background on your Mac or PC. The software records the amount of time spent working in specific applications and will even note the email or file that you are working on and then create a time entry for you. As a result, you never have to worry about going back and trying to remember how much time you spent on a particular project or even jotting down notes as you work.
As our world has become increasingly mobile, the need to record time on the go has become particularly important. Professionals today often need to bill for time spent on the phone, in meetings, or even in the car. Among the latest innovations in time management software is the ability to capture your time while you are on the go. With Chrometa’s mobile apps for iPhone and Android, you are able to capture all of your billable time while ensuring that you do not lose any time.
In the past, the process of creating invoices and timesheets was often cumbersome and time consuming. This could be particularly true if you were trying to do so from manual notes and timers. Today, all of that has changed thanks to the latest innovations in time management software. Chrometa gives you the ability to categorize your time entries and then add those entries to an invoice or timesheet automatically. Among the most innovative features of Chrometa is the ability to utilize a keyword-based rules feature that allows you to instruct Chrometa to search for certain keywords in an email address or document title. The time spent on those files can then be automatically assigned to the appropriate project or client.
In addition, the latest time management software will also allow you to invoice clients directly via email, if you wish, or you can opt to export invoices to a printable format or your preferred billing system, such as QuickBooks or FreshBooks. Thus, you are able to continue billing clients in the method you prefer and the way to which they are accustomed while still taking full advantage of all of the benefits offered by Chrometa.
