TimeWriter is a serious multi-user solution for employee time billing. It is effective for both employees self-control and planning, as well as managers administrative control and reporting for top-management and customers.
From the employees perspective, TimeWriter provides a pretty informative time entry and control interface. There is a weekly grid, on which user can review and enter his occupation for each time period and every day of the week.
There are extensive customization options, so an employee can change his own client programs look-and-feel completely (up to selecting a completely different view instead of the weekly grid).
From the administrations perspective, TimeWriter is distinguished by the multitude of available view points and control capabilities. A manager can set access rights for each employee or group of employees (for example, department), those rights would define, which tasks, projects or customers the employees can access along the course of their work. View points allow reviewing time spent by departments, employees, tasks, customers (in the latter case, it can be used for customer billing).
TimeWriter provides rich sets of reports and graphs, and the new ones can be designed easily from scratch. TimeWriter Pro version also provides web and PDA access and higher administration flexibility.
