We just made report writing so simple anyone in your business can do it
and the report writer is now available to all customers with all of our products
The entire purpose of Timewatch professional services products is to make your work life simple, easy, efficient, and secure. That is our mission.
However, there were technical, logistical, and security challenges that previously meant we could only make our scheduling and timesheet report writer available to our private cloud customers.
New Scheduling and Timesheet Report Writer Now Available to All Customers
We are delighted to announce that our new scheduling and timesheet report writer is now available to all customers. Our new report writer ticks all the boxes and is now available to all customers, of any size on any Timewatch product, including our public cloud customers.
You don’t need to be an expert report writer to use our product nor make sense of your own data. This, of course, gives you greater control over your data and will save your business money.
Our new report writer will make analyzing your scheduling, timesheet, and outlook timesheet data as simple as drag-and-drop, but also has the power and flexibility to support advanced users.
With direct access to your data, the report writer gives the customers the ability to analyze theire resource scheduling, employee, customer, project, timesheet and billing data however they want, in the way they want to see it.
The updated report writer is available with ALL our products and editions. All customers – not just Corporate and Enterprise platform users have access to this exciting update.
Why is this a big deal? Let’s break it down:
- Customers can now write reports for all user levels! Previously custom reports were only available to advanced users. Now they can be created and added to menus for any level of user.
- More export formats have been added! This allows customers to use the report writer as a custom data extract tool. For some customers, especially smaller customers, is a lot easier than using APIs to access raw data.
- Report Writer can be used by anyone! Writing reports can be a tedious (but important) process but there is usually someone in an organization that can manipulate data in spreadsheets and format documents. If there are people with those skills in your organization then they have the skills to be able to write reports using our Report Writer platform.
- (Did we mention that training and consultancy services are available to assist customers if they need it? Well, they are!).
“This is a report writer everyone can use,” explains Phil Jones, Timewatch Product Specialist. “You don’t need to be a database expert. You don’t need to be a geek, our new report writer is something anyone that can use Excel can easily navigate.”
Save money with the new Scheduling & Timesheet Report Writer
Importantly, our upcoming report writer will save your business money.
One Timewatch customer was quoted $40,000 (seriously) by a major ERP provider for a single report. It was complex report that was crucial to the organization, but with a couple of days training and assistance, the customer was able to create the report with our Report Writer.
“Our previous Report Writer was only available to Corporate and Enterprise level customers with private servers,” says Anthony Vaccaro, a senior product specialist at Timewatch. “We redeveloped the Report Writer to make it available to all customers, including our Essentials and Pro editions in our public cloud. Now customers don’t have to pay an outside consultant for days of their time, they can create their own reports, have total control of their reporting and get exactly the reports management needs.”
We just made report writing simple and easy
There is no denying report writing can be a complex process, but our report writer provides that service with simple clicks of a button. To make report writing as easy as possible, the report writer is pre-configured with data views that will give customers access to all the data they should ever need, including custom fields they create.
Timewatch understands every customer is different and our new report writer also supports customized formatting. Do you want your company’s logo included? Do you want your reports to follow your business’ style guide? You can customize your report to reflect your business identity.
How to avoid using Excel but continue to write your own reports
As your business grows, you won’t out-grow our scheduling and timesheet report writer. As you scale, you won’t require a new system or need to hire more consultants. You simply modify your reporting parameters. The Timewatch report writer is simple to use and it sets us apart from our competitors.
“Customers tell us that before Timewatch they had to export data to Excel and manipulate data for days to get management the monthly reports they need, which is hardly real time reporting,” says Phil Jones.
“With Timewatch, customers get closer to their requirements with our standard reports but now they can write their own reports to perfectly match their requirements. This means that monthly management reports can be printed off minutes before board meetings or in real time by directors.”
“Now, more than ever, businesses want to take control of their own data and write their own reports. This opens up report writing to everyone. You don’t have to use consultancy services that will cost you lots of money. You don’t need to be an expert in report writing to get the data you want.”
Explains Vaccaro: “We often get asked by customers if they can write their own reports. Now the answer for all customers is yes. This new add-on ticks a huge box for customers.”
