Time Tracking Software Overview

What is time tracking software?

Time tracking software applications are used to record and analyze employee, contractor and consultant time spent on jobs and tasks. These applications will often include the capability to generate invoices based on the time spent on client related activities. At a basic level, they track employee name with dates/times worked, replacing paper timesheets and/or expense reports. Depending on the complexity of the tool--whether it is designed for freelancers, small teams, or large hierarchal organizations--it may track other parameters like pay rate, location, department, project, etc. More complex tools may also include other project management features, and/or integrations to project management, professional services automation, expense management, CRM, payroll, and accounting systems. For tracking time at multiple locations, or with remote workers or contractors, mobile functionality is especially important.

Time tracking products designed for use by individuals (like freelancers) frequently include things like timers, notifications, or productivity reports designed to help them understand and optimize how they spend their time, as well as the ability to create simple invoices and collect payments through the app. Time tracking products designed for use by teams usually include reports to help managers understand how employee time is spent, generate accurate project estimates, and allocate resources appropriately. Time tracking products designed for large organizations usually include policy compliance mechanisms, to enforce company policies about overtime, expenses, etc. and they integrate to payroll software for more accurate, automatic project-based payments. Some Core HR platforms, like Kronos Workforce Ready and UltiPro, have a robust time tracking component and are therefore included in this category.
