Really Useful Product at a Really Reasonable Price.
I have used TimeFox in several ways: as an employee to record my time; as a production manager to develop estimates, manage projects, and streamline workflow; and as a freelancer to manage my time, keep clients informed, and simplify billing.
Recording time with TimeFox is much easier and faster than filling in paper timesheets, and much more accurate, too, especially with its automatic timer feature. I found I was making fewer errors in posting time to projects myself, and because no one had to collate, interpret, and record our team’s time, there were fewer errors overall.
As production manager, I used TimeFox features such as estimating, the project blog, client and project reports, scheduling, and calendars, to manage projects and improve communications within our team and with clients. I was able to increase our billable hours, and because we were keeping better tabs on things, there were fewer disputes or questions from clients about bills. With people recording their time as they completed their tasks, I could keep on top of budgets better, and could see who was overloaded with work, and who had the capacity to take on more. I found TimeFox easy to scale up when new employees or contractors were needed and just easy to scale down again, when belt-tightening was the order of the day.
As a freelancer, I chose to use TimeFox because it gave me all the professional capabilities I needed, without a whole lot of extra bells and whistles – and at an affordable price. TimeFox helps me understand my business better, lets me reply instantly and honestly to client questions – and makes billing a cinch.
Oh. And the customer service is really good too. Whenever I’ve had a question (no matter how dopey) I was able to talk to someone with the knowledge and patience to walk me through the solution.
