I am a Business Manager for an integrated marketing firm owned by Kent State University and operated by Kent State University Students. TimeFox has been very essential to our firm. All of the designers at our firm are students and each of them have different time schedules and it is hard to keep a track of their hours especially when it comes to track billable and non-billable hours for the clients. TimeFox helps the student designers to keep a track of their hours and helps me when I am trying to bill a client since it gives me all details regarding the client's projects. It is also helpful when it comes to tracking hours spent on a particular project and gives a running total of the time spent on a project versus the estimated hours assigned to the project. It is very user-friendly and easy to understand and customizable based on one's needs. One thing I wish it would have is a functionality to create invoices. Another thing I hope is that they update their smartphone app. It currently only supports time-sheet entries (clocking in & out) and not all the features that one could use online. It would be nice to have the ability to at least look at the project reports and employee hour reports through the mobile app and it can prove very handy during meetings.

I haven't really used any products exactly similar to TimeFox. However, I have used Intacct which is a much complicated software in which you can track your hours, projects, contracts, billing, etc. It is an accounting software and TimeFox on the other hand is just mainly focused on time tracking of various projects.
All of my employees are used to it and introducing a new software to them requires them to get trained again increasing the costs. TimeFox is an easy to use and understand software. Another advantage of TimeFox is that is an online software and I can access it whenever I want to.
It is extremely well suited when one needs to track billable and non-billable hours. The only thing I wish they work is on that give the user the ability to select new or different task once related to a particular project once the project has been setup. Overall, it does a great job!
