If your organisation sells a service rather than a product, chances are that you are already using some form of time management package to track time spent servicing clients. If not, then you really should have!
Time management software does exactly what it says on the tin – help you manage your time. By tracking and recording how time is spent you can see where you are wasting time and more importantly what activities actually benefit your business.
There are numerous packages on the market, from simple one user editions to full enterprise editions running across multiple machines or locations. The one we use here at UKNetWeb tracks time by the minute, has space for adding costs and expenses, has multiple users, has various task and client levels and a good set of wizards for generating reports for a range of factors.
The screenshot below shows the type of system we use, you can find out more about the package here.
If you’re just starting out in business, or act as a freelance consultant, it may be worth looking at some of the free packages available on the web. There are a number of free or low cost services to choose from here.
