iTimeSheet is a simple-to-use productivity tool that provides an active business person with the tools to manage their tasks and responsibilities effectively, efficiently and economically.
iTimeSheet allows you to mark down in one place all the myriad tasks you have to accomplish that day. Perhaps, for example, today you have a business meeting, a conference call and a report to write and submit. Thanks to iTimeSheet’s intelligent interface, noting this all in one organized, immediately accessible (and above all portable) point of reference takes all of about 3 minutes. Navigate through your work life in individual days or plan out whole weeks and months at a time.
After a task, day or job is completed, iTimeSheet gives you a built-in timer for providing a clear and automatic accounting of how much time you spent on each activity, on each job comprised of multiple activities, and even on each individual client for whom you provide multiple services.
Create instant activity reports, for example noting that perhaps you only wrote the report assigned to you but have yet to submit it. Looking ahead, you can schedule in that submission now so that you get it done, and don’t forget it in the shuffle. On the other hand, suppose you completed the task and it’s time to bill the client. In that case, you can export your activity report into an Excel file to email to the client along with your itemized invoice, also automatically produced by the iTimeSheet software. With that same export function you can now input this data into the iTimeSheet analytics module for detailed study.
This means iTimeSheet becomes progressively more useful and more valuable to you the more that you use it, as it helps you to streamline you work life and become more effective and efficient in all that you do.
