There’s no doubt that having your own business is difficult. But day-to-day management may be even harder! Project coordination, HR, reporting, and so on are just the tip of the iceberg.
That’s where Timepot comes in. At the first glance, it’s a user-friendly employee time tracking software, but it’s so much more. Not only does it let you easily log hours spent on a project or a task, and provides powerful reports, but it also helps you manage them more efficiently. It’s aimed primarily at small and medium companies and freelancers. Timepot helps you stay up-to-date with what’s happening in your company and settle up the bills with your clients.
Timepot was created by Sparkbit, a software house located in Warsaw. The owners: Kasia Fulara, Jędrek Fulara and Michał Kręglewski, have over ten years of experience in IT. Timepot, published in February 2017, is their first startup and it looks like it’s not going to be the last.
“Timepot was first created for the internal use of our company. The solutions we were using didn’t meet our needs, that’s why we decided to create an app which would combine a complex reporting system with an easy-to-use interface. The project turned out to be a great success. The next step was to publish the app,” say Timepot’s creators.
The core function of the app is tracking time. You can do it automatically or add the hours manually. Whether it’s a small task or a whole long-term project, you can review and analyse all the data and then generate a detailed report.
What’s more, Timepot also provides you with days-off management tool. The user’s vacation dates are added to the calendar, where everyone can view them and plan the work accordingly. There is also a notification feature, which informs other team members of any days off or sick leaves. No more running around the office, looking for someone.
Timepot also has an advanced finance module. Thanks to that, you can easily track the cost of the project and the revenue it creates (in time & materials mode or fixed-price mode). This solution proved very popular among freelancers, IT companies, and design or digital agencies because you can see right away whether projects are profitable or not.
What’s more, you don’t need to worry about any previous apps you’d been using. You can easily import historical data from other time tracking apps. You can also integrate Timepot with Nozbe for an even more efficient workflow. However, that’s not all; there’s a Chrome extension that tracks time in your browser, so you can easily log hours using Jira, Trello, Youtrack, Gmail or Google docs, slides and sheets.
So far, Timepot has several hundred users and is still growing. The team are collecting feedback to make the app even better.
