Time Tracking & Reporting, Time Management, HR
About the Product
Driven by its day-to-day need to execute, monitor and control software development effort across multiple clients, teams and offices, Finite Software Systems was inspired to create a versatile time management tool. The work&log solution automates the processes of aggregating work data and performing business analyses on both project-based and operative work.
Apart from providing a streamlined interface for logging working hours, the work&log platform brings in the added value of automatically translating raw data into meaningful tailor-made reports based on custom tags, projects, task description or other user-defined criteria. Furthermore, custom benchmarks can be set up against which performance results are to be measured to facilitate taking management decisions based on facts and figures. Furthermore, historical data collected can be processed and used for the purposes of analogous work estimates.
Designed and developed to cater for the expectations of diverse industries and verticals, work&log has the needs of various target groups in mind. These range from freelancers to large outsourcing teams, where differentiated access levels are called for; or even busy university students that wish to enhance their time management skills. Users can either automatically log hours real-time, which works best with open-ended tasks; or manually specify the start and end time of task at the end of a busy day or a week, while automated reminders make sure that the data on the system is up-to-date. This makes the work&log solution a trusted companion to any time-management-conscious and efficiency-oriented individual or team of professionals.
Product customization options allow for setting up projects, roles and permissions, working hours, preferred time zone, as well as for choosing a color scheme and uploading custom graphic elements. To facilitate planning, work&log is also equipped with a calendar functionality that provides for managing special dates, such as paid leaves, bank holidays, etc. Key benefits of the software include enhancing transparency and accountability on teams, boosting productivity and providing detailed insight into costs in terms of time expended, thus facilitating profitability analysis and streamlining billing processes.
