Overall Satisfaction with Time Doctor

I am currently the only person in our company using Time Doctor. As the founder and owner, my time is more valuable than that of my subordinates. So I needed something that would let me know where I was spending time, to assess the extent to which each of our products was profitable (or not).

We don't track payroll, and we don't bill clients, so we have no need at this time for using Time Doctor company-wide.
  • Constantly checks your computer to see if you are doing something that seems like work (e.g. email or programming) or something that might not be (e.g. surfing the web).
  • Letting you quickly confirm or deny whether you are still working on your specified task.
  • It sometimes makes mistakes, such as not realizing that you are no longer at your computer and then claiming that you worked "all night".
  • Time Doctor has done two important things: 1) Allow me to measure the profitability of each of my projects. 2) Nudge me towards the work that I should be working on at any given time, and away from distractions.
Great for small teams. Seems too complicated for larger teams, especially with the occasional errors -- I would be spending a chunk of my time as a manager weeding out bad data.
