Overall Satisfaction with Daptiv

Daptiv is being used as a time tracking tool for project management. Each project team member is expected to log time spent on assigned project tasks on a daily basis. It is also being used to track productivity in certain departments as a time management tool.
  • Customize tasks to each project or user group.
  • Roll up reporting available for project sponsors and department managers.
  • End user friendly if set up correctly.
  • Can be time consuming to complete daily for end user if assigned to multiple projects.
  • When setting up tasks, there are endless numbers of items that can be listed. Sometimes too much detail!
  • Better resource allocation based on time tracking.
  • Better customer service in call center functions based on call type tracking.
I have not used other similar products, other than to create custom excel based workbooks when needed.
Daptiv is well suited for time tracking IF the tasks per project or department are well thought-out and scoped correctly. Thought and consideration should be given to tracking only those things that affect multiple project members.
