Time®&Money

Time & Billing system that can perfectly match your invoicing rules

Sophisticated Project Billing

Designed to match your billing rules perfectly.

Time®&Money adds configurable and customizable valuation and billing systems to the unrivaled time tracking features of our Time® system.

The system caters for simple to complex rating systems for time and expenses and supports simple to incredibly complex billing rules. A library of invoice templates styles is included, but pixel-perfect invoice templates can also be created.

Most customer’s rating and billing rules can be supported via inbuilt configurable features, but for complex requirements, the system also supports fully customizable rating and billing rules, which can be ‘dropped’ into the system.

However, your organization values time and invoices customers, Time®&Money can perfectly support it.

No matter how simple or how challenging, Time®&Money ensures projects can be billed quickly, easily and accurately. This certainty leads to maximized revenue, reduced administration, elimination of errors, faster timesheet to billing times, fewer customer questions which mean faster invoice settlements.

Time and billing dashboard
1
Time®&Money starts up with a summary for Administrators and Managers of current progress: sales, billable time stats, cumulative sales charts etc.
2
End users enter timesheets here – they see a simpler menu, without all of the admin & reporting features.
3
Administrators manage end user timesheets here.
4
End users enter their expenses here – again, end users have a simpler menu, typically just with My Timesheet & My Expenses.
5
Administrators manage employee and project expenses here.
6
Billing is where time project costs are managed and turned into invoices.
7
Admin and Setup is where administrators manage projects, customers, employees, rules, charging structures etc.
8
Charts and gauges on the Home dashboard can show literally any view key performance data. This is a standard Dashboard, but they can be configured specifically for your organization.

The Perfect Timesheet

Successful time & billing starts with the timesheet.

End users want their timesheet to be simple, easy to use and fast, but organizations need it to support their rating, billing and workflow rules, which can be complex. Simple and complex do not play together well. This conflict leads to iether a compromised billing system, or a timesheet that is complex, unfriendly and time consuming.

Time®&Money is can learn and automate the complex admin elements†. This allows the design of the timesheet to focus on its ease of use and user friendliness, which is evident at first glance. The MS-Office look and feel ensure users feel instantly familiar‡. Time®&Money can also learn what people are working on, which makes tomorrow’s timesheet easier and faster. Leveraging data in Outlook makes timesheet entry up to 7 times faster than any other timesheet system§. Additionally timers track time as users work, voice control allows users to fit time tracking into otherwise unproductive parts of their day, and all of this runs on PCs, Macs & Mobile devices.

Best of all, each user can choose the perfect mix of timesheet tools to suit their style of working.

There is no compromise with Time®&Money. End users receive their perfect timesheet, one that is is simple, easy and fast. Organizations get the no-compromise time & billing system they need to support their rating, billing and workflow rules.

‡ Customers tell us their users feel instantly familiar with the Time®&Money timesheet, as if they’ve been using the system for years.

§ Outlook appointments already have 6 of the 7 things needed for a timesheet (date, subject, start time, duration, notes). Just adding a customer allows an appointment to become a timesheet. Reusing data already in Outlook makes Time®&money 7 times faster than any other system.

1
With Office 365 look and feel, users are instantly familiar with the systems. This helps make our timesheets faster and easier to learn and use.
2
Timers help users track time on specific tasks throughout the day. Users can start, stop and swap between timers as the day evolves. It’s easy, accurate and perfect for busy users.
3
Users of Outlook or Google calendars can save hours each week by turning Outlook or Google appointments into timesheets.
4
The timesheet dashboard provides users with a quick summary of timesheet status.
5
Easy navigation allows users to quickly move back and forth in time to the last completed timesheet, last entered, submitted or current week
6
Timesheet column names can be tailored to match the terms your organization uses. Matching the terminology makes timesheet entry more intuitive and easier for end users.
7
Within a job or project, there are two further sub levels available for analysis. These can also be renamed to suit your organization, and users can sort timesheets by any column heading.
8
Time can be entered as hours.decimals, hours:minutes, or as a %age of time.
9
Notes can be allocated to each timesheet cell. Cells with notes can be recognized by the notes icon. Notes are available in reporting and billing.
10
Color coding can be setup to highlight days that do and do not meet minimum hours requirements. Red shows days that are incomplete.
11
With the mobile app, users can enter timesheets via mobile phone and tablet as well.
12
Once setup, Time® is intuitive and easy to use, but if users need help there is an inbuilt support system for your organization. Users can ask questions of administrators and ask questions which the inbuilt search system answers.

Perfect Rates & Rules

There can be no compromises when valuing and billing time & expenses.

This is why Time®&Money rates and billing rules are configurable and customizable.

Out of the box, Time®&Money supports simple to complex charge rates and a variety of common billing methods. However, it can also support specialized rates and uncommon billing rules with custom billing rules.

Custom rates and rules can support anything. For example, one customer had retainer based billing, but with some pretty unusual rules that were based on the variances of all previous invoices. No problem, we helped them define their rules, then composed the SQL that encapsulated their rules, which when dropped in, perfectly matched their requirements.

Time®&Money also supports pixel-perfect invoice format customization and perfect integration with any financial system and supports multi-currency billing.

No matter how you value time or expenses, how you invoice customers, the formats of invoices or the financial system you need to integrated with, Time®&Money can perfectly match your requirements today and in the years to come.

Challenge us! Contact us today. We’d be happy to review your billing requirements and show you how Time®&Money can meet them.

The Drafts section show all of the draft invoices that are being worked on and highlights invoices that have had amendments made.
5
When within the Drafts section, individual drafts can be edited by highlighting, then clicking this button. Drafts can be edited from the total values and where needed, right down to the transactions included and their values. Text on the invoice is editable, as is the Invoice Template used.
6
When ready, Drafts can be Invoiced. This does everything you set it to do. Produce the Invoice, email the customer, post the transaction to your financial accounting system, whatever you require.
7
Time®&Money retains a full history of all invoices, the transactions included and any amendments that were made through the draft process.
8
To turn Suggestions into Drafts, the billing operator simply checks the items to be included, then clicks ‘Move to Drafts’.

Dig a little deeper...

Timewatch® timesheet systems offers multiple entry methods and advanced features that allow our customers to configure our solutions to perfectly match their needs now, and grow, adapt and evolve system features in the future. Click on the items below to learn more.

Timesheet entry, excel timesheet, time tracking, time recording all made easy

Tracking Time

Track time and save time doing it.

Like you, we value your employee’s time – we not only help you value time in monetary terms, we help you save employees’ time entering timesheets in the first place.

The greatest time saving comes from letting users enter timesheet in the way that works best for them. Our systems support timesheet entry via PC, Mac, phone, tablet, using timers, posting appointments from Outlook, speaking to their phone or any mixture of these.

This flexibility saves everyone time, increases timesheet accuracy and decreases delays in timesheet submission.

Our customers tell us that we save each employee 1-3 hours per week over other systems. That’s ½ to 1½ days extra each month, to spend on productive or chargeable activities. If you add it up, that’s quite a valuable saving.

Outlook Timesheet

Turn appointments into timesheets

It's a dream come true for Outlook users, with a Timewatch® system they can save hours each week by posting their Outlook Appointments to their timesheet.

Outlook already hold most of the information needed for a timesheet – start time, end time, duration, date, subject and notes. Our Outlook plugin allows users to allocate customer & project details to appointments, and then post them to their timesheet.

It’s easy, it saves time, decreases timesheet posting delays and increases the accuracy of employee timesheets.

Charge Rates

Valuing time - perfectly

However you value or charge time, Timewatch® charging systems can handle it.

From simple rates by person or role, to more complex rates that vary by customer or project, and even where each person has multiple rates on a project based on the role they perform or work they do, we support them all.

Even if you need to go back in time and alter rates historically, you can. Timewatch® systems maintain full rate history over time, so you can even set future rate changes in advance.

With Timewatch® there are no compromises in how you set your charge rates, so there is never a penny lost.

expenses tracking and billing

Expenses

Tracking, charging & billing Expenses

Timewatch® expenses entry is fully integrated with the timesheet system, allowing employees to quickly and easily log their project expenses.

As with timesheets, the system includes manager approval and review systems, is fully multi-currency compliant and allows for different charge rates by customer and project.

Employee expenses entry is simple and easy, and is available on PC and mobile devices, so users can snap a photo of a receipt and attach it to an expense claim there and then.

Existing employee expenses systems can be linked with easily using our integration tools.

Timesheet billing

Billing

Costing, Charging and Billing

Timewatch® costing, charging and billing systems are designed to help streamline the process of billing.

From the timesheet & expense rates you charge, the fixed price structures you use to the approval processes and the format of the invoices, Timewatch® systems can be configured to match your billing rules, procedures and format. We support everything from the simplest rates to highly complex rates that vary by person, customer, project date, work performed, or any combination of these.

The system "suggests" draft invoices based on your rules. Users with the appropriate permissions can amend and adjust drafts, and once finalized, invoices can be created in literally any format (using customizable invoice templates) in any currency (with our multi-currency module), and posted to your financial system.

Invoice Templates

Invoice Templates

Invoice Formatting Options

Perfect invoice formatting is a reality for a Timewatch® time & billing system.

Each system comes with a variety of invoice templates which you can personalize. You set your address, payment terms etc. and can even upload your own company logo – and there is a spell checker built in.

Invoices can be printed, exported, saved as PDF as well as emailed.

If you find you need specific invoice template in a specific formats, these can be created for you.

Multi-Currency

Full Currency Support

In the global marketplace, companies need to be able to do business in different countries and different currencies.

Timewatch® time & billing systems offer two multi-currency options. The first takes the approach that all products take, which is to convert invoices to the target currency when an invoice is raised.

The second is more advanced and is suited to organizations that wish to run their projects in their customer’s currency, and convert to their base currency for reporting and analysis.

Profitability

Real time analysis

Timewatch® time and billing systems employ a triple rating system.

In addition to the usual charge our rates used to drive billing, Timewatch® systems can also track ‘cost rates’ as well as ‘actual billing rates’.

Although cost rates and actual billing rates are not essential, where they are utilized, project, customer, employee and project task profitability can be analysed. This provides valuable information to project managers who can recognize projects that need attention as they are progressing, rather than learn after the fact that margins were squeezed or worse, they ran at a loss.

Integration

Link with Financials

When implementing a Timewatch® solution, you frequently need to integrate it with other applications.

A range of standard Apps are available to link with popular systems, and standard tools are available that allow for real-time integrations with any system.

Contact us to discuss your integration requirements.

Timesheet and resource scheduling reporting

No Compromise Reporting

Different people in an organization need different reporting tools, and different organizations have different reporting needs.

- Classic Print Preview style reporting
- Interactive Drill Down reporting
- Dashboard Reporting

Dashboards

Visualize your data

Dashboards provide a high level, visual display of organizational KPI’s, metrics, and data. These give CEOs and CFOs and managers at-a-glance visibility into business performance across all units, customers, projects and employees.

Data Security

You Can Sleep At Night

Timewatch® not only meet the usual requirements for Data Security, we Mobile App 'back door’.

Mobile Apps operate on personal devices that are usually outside of the control of an organization’s IT Security and pose a potential security threat as they download and store data offline. Arxan & ISSA.org state that 97% of all paid Android and iPhone apps and 80% of free apps have been hacked.

Cloud applications have done away with downloading and installing applications on PCs and Macs, so why is this done for phones & Tablets? Apps were a great idea in 2007, they are no longer necessary today.

Timewatch® don’t use downloadable apps. Our mobile apps are responsive web apps that adapt to the device they are running on. As there is nothing to install, there is no data downloaded or stored on the device, no security updates that are missed, and no security risk from people using old versions.

Best of all, with no data stored locally, there is nothing to worry about if a phone is lost or stolen.

All Devices

Runs on all devices

Timewatch® time and billing systems run on all major devices including: PC, Mac, Chrome Book, Android, iPhone & iPad.

Our products are modern responsive systems, which means they automatically adapt to the device being used. There is nothing to download or install on any device, so there are no headaches from unusual phones or older phone OS’s. There is no corporate security risk from data being downloaded and stored on the device or from people not upgrading to the latest release. As everything is run from a browser, users are always running the latest and most secure system.

Easy line manger approval and flexible period posting rules allow for late timesheets without them being lost in a previous period. This results in minimal delays in starting billing, and the streamlined billing functionality make it a very rapid and smooth process.

Our current billing system is cumbersome and slow. How is yours better

Billing is streamlined and fast. Our system supports unlimited rates by any combination of employee, project, customers, type of work, role, or date.  These are all setup at the project level, so by ‘training’ the system to know your rules by project, the system can present an invoice ‘suggestion’ based on the rules & rates you have set.  You can then edit and adjust these, before finalizing (approving) the invoice. Each step is simple and easy, but why not contact us and let us show you the system in operation?

Can employee and project expenses be invoiced?

Yes. End users can enter their expenses, and administrators can enter project expenses (disbursements)  which can be billed with timesheets or fixed fees or separately.

Cost and charge information can be sensitive information that you only want certain people to see. The security system within Time&Space® allows you to configure who can see what information.

Can we issue credit notes?

Yes, and you can credit an invoice, which will match off that invoice. If an credited invoice was based on time and expense transactions, they system can release associated transactions, so if you need to, you can start the billing process again.

Can we stop certain users billing?

Yes. The inbuilt security system lets you control who has access to which features. Security is comprehensive. You can limit people to certain areas of billing, for example to edit an invoice in preparation for billing, but not be able to finalize it, and you can even limit people to just the projects they are allowed to see.

Can we write time off?

Yes, you can also delay and hold time to bill later, edit the values/rates in billing and the invoice totals, and the system keeps a record of the original and amended values.

Can you support unusal billing rules?

Yes we can. If you can define the rules, a plugin App can be created to realize them. If you have any questions, speak with a systems implementer.

How do Auto Alerts work?

Alerts can test for certain situations, then email designated people if true. For example, you could have the system test at 11:00am Monday morning whether there are outstanding timesheets and email the people concerned a message that you define. You could have a follow up alert with a different message later in the day. Common tests for alerts are late timesheets, unposted expenses, managers with timesheets or expenses to approve, late changes to a schedule. The system also supports custom eventualities. If you can define an event to test, we can create a trigger for you for you to attach an alert.

Are there API's

Yes, API’s are available to securely access and update data and create interfaces with other systems. 

How customizable is the system?

Very customizable. Out of the box there are an extraordinary number of configurable options, but where specific functions, business logic or work flow is needed, custom apps can be created to expand the functionality available. Apps allow the system to be tailored to customers’ needs, without sacrificing future upgradability. Apps allow for custom forms or functions to be created and added to custom buttons which can be added to the menus. Custom business logic can be created to replace or augment existing logic, and custom interfaces can be created that act in real time, posting or retrieving data from other systems. If you have a unique or specific need, contact us to discuss the possibility of having a custom App created.

Can we link this to our LMS and CRM systems?

Yes. We have a number standard CRM links. LMS systems tend to require a specific interface based on how you’ve setup your system, but you can either build your own interface with our API’s, or it might make sense to create an app whereby our system calls the API’s in your LMS or CRM system.

Can Scheduling link with Outlook / Office 365?

Yes, we offer both a one way push to Outlook/Google etc. or a full bi-directional sync with Outlook (Exchange & Office 365 systems). The sync is an advanced sync that not only publishes bookings to Outlook, it can ‘police’ certain bookings to ensure end users do not accidentally move or delete them – something Outlook itself cannot even do!

Can we link this with our Accounting System?

Yes. There are a number of standard interfaces for common systems, API’s if you wish to create an interface yourselves. Another option is for us (or you) to create an App for our system to link directly with API’s from your accounting system.
