IT Consulting Company Chose actiTIME Over 25 Time Tracking Solutions

DSS Consulting Ltd. a 20-year experience in developing customized applications and providing companies with business and IT consultancy. The company is based in Budapest, Hungary.

Time-tracking before

DSS Consulting Ltd. runs multiple projects at the same time. For fixed-price projects, it needs to make sure that they don’t go over the budget. For time and materials projects, it needs to provide clients with detailed invoices.

To meet these needs, DSS Consulting used to utilize an in-house app with basic time tracking features. Since it required maintenance, the company management decided to go with an out-of-the-box solution and include its cost into the project development costs for clients.

We did a thorough market research comparing about 25 different products, both cloud and self-hosted, open source and commercial. What we were searching for was a user-friendly UI, a set of required features, and an attractive price. actiTIME turned out to have the best combo of these qualities.

Time-tracking after

actiTIME implementation took the company less than 3 months. The company already had a time tracking system in place that reminded employees to submit their time logs at the end of the week. actiTIME also requires daily time tracking and offers timesheet approvals feature, so DSS Consulting didn’t have to introduce significant changes to the existing time tracking policies.

Employees at DSS Consulting reported that actiTIME made their time tracking experience easier and more accurate. They particularly enjoy using a mobile timer as they switch from one task to another. It only takes a click to start a timer and another click to save the data and synchronize it with the timesheet.

After implementing actiTIME 3 years ago, we’ve been getting accurate and measurable data of how time is distributed across our projects, and now we can timely react to any deviations. I would name two main things that define time reports accuracy for us: it’s a clear customer-project-tasks structure and regularly completed time logs achieved by an easy-to-use interface.

Managers also turn to staff performance reports to see how employees use their working hours across different activities, which activities take too much time and if they can improve project workflow.
