Case Study: How InfoWorks Benefits from Using TimeCamp – An Interview with Becky Vaught
Read our interview with Becky Vaught from InfoWorks and find out how the company uses TimeCamp,
and how our software helps them in their daily work.
How did you find out about TimeCamp?
Our company utilizes a custom-built, time-tracking system for our weekly timesheets, invoices, and expenses. As a B-2-B consulting firm, our invoices are sent to the client in the best way that fits their needs. One of our clients needed our invoices to represent the number of hours an employee worked per work item; whereas, our time-tracking system only provides the number of hours an employee worked per project. I began searching for a web-based tool that could provide that level of granularity, which is how I came across TimeCamp.
How had your company been operating before you implemented TimeCamp?
Our business still operates relatively the same as it did before we implemented TimeCamp. What has changed, is our ability to adhere to our client’s wishes and delight them with minimal customizations to our existing time-tracking system.
How do you use TimeCamp – is using our software beneficial to you and in what way?
At the beginning, we utilized TimeCamp for its basic time-tracking capabilities and would then pull a custom report and manually match it to what an employee entered in our time-tracking system. This process was painful for all parties involved and caused several hours of additional work to ensure each system matched. We created a custom API that integrates directly with our time-tracking system and TimeCamp. In addition, we created a tool (we dub, TimeCamp Helper) that allows a project lead to quickly insert the list of their work items at the appropriate hierarchy needed.
How does using TimeCamp affect employee productivity?
Honestly, TimeCamp is an extra step for our employees. However, the benefit of having this web-based tool far out weighs the additional step. If we didn’t have TimeCamp, we would have to track work items in Excel and no one wants that.
Which features do you find most useful and why?
The entire reason I chose this tool was because I could add work items in a hierarchy (e.g, Project -> Sprint -> Product Backlog Item -> Task). If TimeCamp couldn’t meet that basic need, we would have chosen a different tool. Since we’ve started using it, I have found some additional features that are super handy: graphical timesheet view, custom reports, and the ability to view/edit anyone’s timesheet as an Admin.
Did you have any problems implementing TimeCamp?
No, I didn’t experience any issues implementing TimeCamp.
Can you imagine working without TimeCamp now?
I can’t, honestly. We now have 48 users utilizing TimeCamp and several project managers who manage their project’s work items on their own, which was the dream really.
Do you have any pieces of advice for us that could help us in the future?
As an admin, I’m usually the first to hear if TimeCamp is experiencing issues. Many times, the issues resolve in time, but sometimes I have to reach out to TimeCamp support. It would be nice to receive notifications via email from TimeCamp when you are going live with a change/hot fix. It would be nice to be on the front end of any problems/changes.
