Do you use time tracking software in your company? Is it helpful or interrupting? What are advantages and disadvantages ?

Yes, we do use the cloud based hours tracking software and applications from Replicon. The tool is absolutely hassle free and is featured with the user based and calendar based interface which makes the tool an intuitive tool to work with.

Time tracking software can help you to have a better understanding of exactly what is happening in your business (especially for virtual teams). It provides the business owner with an overview of the business as well as where the team is spending their time and efforts.

In our case, we're using Time Doctor in our company and it is not interrupting. It only tracks the websites and applications used while people are working.

When Time Doctor is turned off or if you are on a break, none of your activities are tracked, so you can feel secure in knowing that data will only be collected when you want it to be.

I agree, Time Tracking tools are very helpful to business in order to manage employees effectively and improve their productivity. However, it must not invade employees privacy and use this tool ethically.

We do. We use Yaware.TimeTracker.

I think it's ok. It is a really powerful tool for business and employees. I like to see how much time I actually work and how productive I am during the day.

I see no disadvantages in time tracking, or maybe I just haven't experienced them yet.

Necessary, I would say. And definitely helpful.

I personally do not see any disadvantage. It saves a lot more time than it consumes (which is almost nothing), for sure. Not only because a fairly decent time tracking software should provide fast access to data related to the use of time but also because it helps you reorganize and reprioritize how you evst your time.

I see there are already a few suggestions in this thread. I encourage you to have a look. I have been using time tracking by primaERP for the past few months and I am quite satisfied with it. Tracks my team's data in detail (according to client, project, task, activitiy) creates reports, generates bills.

I recommend it. have a look: https://www.primaerp.com/
