cloud-based timesheet managementCloud-based timesheet management systems offer an end-to-end cloud-based solution for capturing, approving, processing, reporting and auditing employee or contractor time and work.

  • Secure Universal Access. Cloud-based means the solution is 100% web-based and can be accessed securely anytime from anywhere by internal employees such as approvers and external users such as contractors or staffers.
  • No Software Required. No special end-user software needs to be installed or updated. The system is 100% secure with built-in authentication tools and encryption of all data sent or received.
  • Fastest Deployment. As a cloud system, it can be deployed in minutes and can be easily scaled up and down from 100 to many thousands of users.
  • Different Service Plans. The cost of the system can be billed on a month-to-month basis if system user counts vary significantly, saving the customer significant dollars over carrying the cost of perpetual software licenses. The system can also be contracted using an annual service agreement for additional discounts.
  • Data Integration. The system can automatically integrate employee or contractor profiles, approval setup data, or project and task data from third party systems such as payroll, accounting or ERP systems. When ready, the system can electronically upload employee or contractor time and work data to third party systems for payroll, accounting job costing, or billing purposes.
