We realize how challenging it may be to manage a small team, not to mention a whole office or a company! A manager must be a man/woman of steel. Taking care of all the projects, making sure that nothing is behing the deadline, and keeping an eye on the employees is an exhausting task. Definitely not for every mortal to perform.

However, there are ways to make “this hard not to crack” well…less hard. Today, we are presenting software that was designed especially for the purpose of helping companies manage their employees. When implemented into the office, it will enhance the team’s performance and engagement, and the investment will return very quickly!

So, without further introductions, here is the list that is great for Employee Tracking, and more!

TimeCamp

TimeCamp is software which monitors the actions performed on the computer and helps employees better understand how they make use of their working time so that they can work more efficiently. TimeCamp also allows us to calculate the overtime and control the employees’ presence in the company.

TimeCamp can help boost your employees’ efficiency and productivity. This app will track the time that was spent on a particular activity and display a detailed graph from which you will learn what you or the member of your team were doing, how much time did it take, and what “distractions” got in the way, which is a great method to eliminate them once and for all.

So, what were the reasons that lead all these people to sing up with Active Collab? Most likely its wide variety of features, including:

  • Task Management – providing the ability to divide a project into smaller tasks (a list of them) where members of our team can discuss the progress, work on a problem, share files and also track their expenses. All to have the full control over the development of the project.
  • All the work in one place, neat and tidy – Each user has his or her dashboard where they can see all the details concerning their work, track updates and manage their working time more efficiently.
  • Task filtering – provides a possibility to organize tasks according to people, due dates, the size of the project, etc. Once the task is labeled, finding it takes a second! We may also run a report, and all the important detail will be listed on a single page for us.
  • Seamless workflow – thanks to the intuitive creating of tasks to which we can attach files, leave comments, add reminders, set due dates and receive update information regularly.
  • Customization – Users can change their view to adapt it to their needs, plan tasks in a timeline move them across columns or have them all displayed on a list.
  • Team Collaboration – Active Collab guarantees agile communication between team members which is a huge asset when it comes to project management.
  • All-in-one calendar – with the possibility to add custom dates and events to it and have an overall view at our work.

TMetric

TMetric is a web-based time tracking software with a decent number of features. It is very well-developed and scores high in the rankings. It can be integrated with a lot of different web applications, like Asana, Bugzilla, GitHub, GitLab, Jira, Trello, Wrike, and more.

Some of the most important and helpful features of this tool are: billing information in reports (users receive an overview of their incomes and expenses), time format selection (users are able to choose the time format for their reports – hours and minutes, decimal or clock-like hours), total break time and time logging restriction (displays total break time and prevents users who did not participate in the project from logging time for that project) and more.

What you won’t be able to find in TMetric, are features that would allow you to estimate projects time or calculate income. It also does not provide mobile apps, auto tracker, or timelines. Generally, it is a solid tool for time tracking but it lacks some important qualities.
