A lifesaver for consulting practices

Pros: Ease of use; functionality; value for the price; fast and friendly support.

Overall: When we started our consulting firm, we found that we were billing clients for only a fraction of the time we were spending on their projects. We had no reliable way of tracking time for projects that often spanned weeks or months. I compared many time tracking tools, and found that most require the user to remember to log in to a website or launch an app. WorkTime Professional was a lifesaver. The features I like best are: 1) the ability to track time in a granular fashion by client, project, and task; 2) the fact that the tool is always there as a transparent window on my screen, that I can move around or minimize, and I don't have to remember to log in somewhere to start it; 3) time can be added manually; and 4) it is easy to access details for client invoicing. Oh, and 5) the price is so affordable, we can't afford NOT to use it. And 6) on the rare occasion we need support, we get answers fast.

We work with hundreds of business clients, and I recommend that they use WokTime regardless of whether they bill based on time or not. Why? Because as a small business it is critical to understand how you're really spending your time, and sometimes that is not obvious. WorkTime helps you see patterns--what are you spending on time that earns you money versus tasks that could be delegated, outsourced, or automated? Time IS money, and WorkTime helps us spend both wisely.

Pros: There are so many things I love about Work Time, this is my short list: the compact main window display on my laptop. The ability to track: applications I use, documents work with, web-sites visit and time spent for on each of these activities. This is important for my report writing along with billing clients, rate per hour and invoicing. The ability to talk to a human for customer support / tech support issues.

Cons: The Help section does not respond to standard Windows shortcut keys of CTRL+C to copy the text. The Print function only allows to print to a printer. It does not allow to print to a PFD doc.

Overall: Business problems being resolved by using Work Time: easy retrieval of online sources, better documentation for client reports, analyzing time spent on a project as applies to billing of client. My business is a research, fact finding and verification, using Work Time I am better able to site sources for reporting.

Pros: I needed software to keep track of which desktop apps I was using on specific clients' projects. I looked at all the candidates I could find. This was the only one that (1) did just this one thing I wanted it to do, and (2) was not a subscription service with ongoing fees. I bought it and have used it daily for about 7 years now (upgrading once when I got a new computer; not really necessary, but I just went through and updated everything I used).

Cons: Occasionally I wish it were obvious how to get the report on a project to show more than the top 5 apps used. I once sort of stumbled into how to do it, but later forgot the secret. It only rarely matters to me, and even then not much.

Overall: It does precisely what I need, easily, with no fuss, no bells and whistles.

Pros: Really easy to install and once it is working it tracks everything. The reporting is super helpful and I often export to Excel when I need to customize it.

Cons: I wish it was easier to customize the reports. There are a lot of fields I don't need but others which are critical. The filters are great, but need ability to select fields.

Overall: I am in consulting and need to track my time. This is a lifesaver if I go a few days without recording it. I have been using it for years.

Pros: It just works and is very easy to configure. From tracking time spent on various projects, it makes it easy for attorneys to bill their time effectively.

Cons: We had trouble with the license various times, and the support for the product does not seem to be very high. If you can configure it yourself, great. If not, don't bother.

Pros: seamless time keeping for projects/activities

Overall: I have been using this product for about 5 years. I'm a VA with several clients, I can smoothly transition from client & activity throughout the day without a glitch. At the end of the month a couple of clicks is all it takes to print out a report for each client, reducing time and confusion over invoicing. My clients love that they can see the details of how much time I spent each month completing their activities.

Pros: Detailed reporting, flexible settings

Cons: none

Overall: The software is very good tool to track how much of my time that I spend at computer goes to various activities. Knowing this information allow me to chose right activities to optimize and free some time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add ability to mark some applications/documents as excluded from the work time. This would allow to track "pure work" time and not track, for example, social networks activity.

Pros: Works well in background mode

Has detailed reporting on software applications used

Cons: shortfall is the manual intervention required each time client changes

Overall: I would prefer to focus on the software file used to identify the client (i.e. which spreadsheet link etc) which identifies the client clearly. Unfortunately this does not always work on items like Outlook which are used on all clients. Overall a good products as a starting point for reviewing time spent.

Comments: I have this software installed on 7 computers that I manage. I use it strictly for monitoring windows login/logout events. I really like that it is able to run in the background so general users do not have to see it. It is easy to export reports in a number of different formats. I have been using the program for years and feel it is the best value out there for what it does. I have run into a few glitches, some of which Nestersoft has been slow to fix. I ended up writing a simple macro in excel to get the data in the format that I need it. Better documentation defining how the calculations are performed for each available report metric would help, the metrics are not always what they seem. I definitely intend to keep using it.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback.
Start up delay is caused by the database backup. Yes, WorkTime database is backed up daily (we hate to hear when our customers lose any data).
Automatic backup can be disabled in Options, though
