Timesheet & Project Management Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide tips and ideas for improving time tracking and project managment for our customers and other interested people.

Consultant Billing Rates

 

Hello Consultants!

This is a timesheet.  And this is a consultant.  And another, and another.

They all use the same Standard Time® time tracking app.

But do they all have the same client billing rates?

No!

Each consultant can have their own rate.  And each consultant can even have different rates for each project.  And different roles.

Ah, but what if one consultant uses the Web interface, and another uses the iOS?  Or Android?

Doesn’t matter.

How about the Windows client app?

Doesn’t matter!  Standard Time handles it all.  Each consultant bills uniquely for the projects they work on.

That’s the magic of Standard Time.  The consultant’s favorite timesheet.

Blocks of Support Time

 

 

Hello consultants!  My name’s Mike with Standard Time®. And I’m a consultant like you.

Do you sell blocks of support time to your clients?  I’m talking about selling blocks of hours for supporting networks, or computers, or equipment?

A lot of consulting firms do this.

But did you know you can do it within Standard Time?  Standard Time is a great new timesheet with lots of options.

So here we’re selling 250 hours to Pioneer Mechanical

1,000 hours to Basic Printing

And 500 hours to Simple Design

When the hours are gone, we sell another block.  Standard Time handles this like a dream!

Great for tech consulting.

Barcode Scanning

 

Hey, there!  I’m Mike with Standard Time®.

I have a completely new idea for manufacturing and assembly line shops.

Barcode scanning! That’s right; let’s take a look.

Do you ever wonder how long it takes to assemble a product or how long each work order takes?

Try barcoding your work orders, and then scanning them with Standard Time.

That’s right!  Standard Time has a barcode interface.

As your work order goes down the line, scan it with a barcode reader.

When you do, Standard Time starts and stops a timer.  It keeps track of the time.

You’ll be surprised!

Microsoft Project Timesheet

 

Hey, Microsoft Project fans, I’m Mike with Standard Time®.

Did you know that the Standard Time Timesheet integrates with Microsoft Project?

Microsoft Project makes MPP files.  And Standard Time imports them.

Actually, it talks directly to MS Project and pulls down the MPP resources and tasks.

Look at this.  The Standard Time app gets your tasks from MS Project, makes sure the resource assignments connect with employees and shows them in the timesheet.

Then everything goes to the cloud where they can actually read them on their smart phones. It’s like publishing your MPP files to all the employees that are working on them and then getting actual hours back. How nice is that?

QuickBooks Timesheet

 

Hello consultant’s and business owners.  I’m Mike with Standard Time®, thanks for joining me.

Do you need a good timesheet for QuickBooks that all of your consultants can use?

Let me show you Standard Time.  I love it!  I found it a breeze to set up.

So pretty much you can take all you’re time and expenses and put them into QuickBooks. From QuickBooks access it from your desktop, from your smart phone or from the cloud.  And run reports from anywhere. This is the best timesheet I have ever seen.  And I’ve seen a few.

Utilization Rates

 

 

Well, hello there in YouTube Land. I’m Mike with Standard Time®, thanks for coming back.

Are you managing a consulting company?  Or work for one?

Then you’ve probably familiar with the term ‘Utilization rates’.  I found a utilization report within the Standard Time Timesheet that I want to share with you.

Take a look.

Using this chart you can tell right away that you’re making more revenue from Brandon than Josh.

You can see that the scheduled hours are about the same.  Actual hours are almost the same.

But look at Brandon’s billable percentage. It’s a lot higher than Josh’s. That’s because Brandon’s billable utilization is higher.

Want a nice report like this?  Standard Time has it.

It has billing rates for each consultant; and records the number of hours that they’ve spent working.  So you get a great utilization report just like this.

Better Than a Spreadsheet

 

Hey I’m Mike with Standard Time thanks so much for joining me!

Are you using a spreadsheet to track your employee’s time?

I have a better way.  It’s called Standard Time®.  Let me show you a few things.

  1. You can’t sync mobile devices with a spreadsheet. Within Standard Time you can.
  2. Billing rates are impossible to keep up with. Do you have different billing rates for each client? It gets ugly pretty fast. Standard Time makes this easy to organize and keep in order.
  3. Spreadsheets don’t look for user mistakes. That’s because it’s not a timesheet. Standard Time is a real timesheet and it’s made to look for those mistakes.
  4. No project status. A spreadsheet won’t give you charts and graphs and tell you where you’re at. Standard Time does.
  5. Got web access? No matter where you’re employee are at; whether working in the field or they’re working from home they can clock in and out and you can keep a status of where they’re at with their projects.

I hope you’ll take the time to look at Standard Time. Give it a free trial, download it. I’m Mike with Standard Time, see you next time!

Five Timesheet Features

 

Hey guys, Mike with Standard Time®. Thanks for coming back.

I know I’ve been saying lately that Standard Time is more than just a timesheet. And it’s true! And today I’m going to take that one step further.

Up here we have six tabs your consulting and manufacturing business cannot live without. I’ll start with the timesheet. Every business needs a good timesheet. And Standard Time is the best out there. Here’s why;

You have the project task tab; that’s where you can go to check the status of all projects and tasks. You have your Time Log; that’s where each time segment that your employee logs goes. You have your expense tab; that’s where you put all your expenses, mileage stuff like that. Your billing where you can bill your clients, see the status of your invoices. And then you have your time off; your PTO, your vacation, your sick leave, your personal leave. You can also submit your hours there where your manager can either accept or decline those hours.

Pretty sweet stuff! Download your free version today. I’m Mike with Standard Time. Thanks for joining me.

Task Warnings

 

 

Hey, guys, Mike with Standard Time®. Thanks for coming back. I’ve got a project management feature I think you’re going to like. I know I love it!

Have you ever had an employee who likes to ‘camp out’ on certain projects? Maybe they like it or are comfortable with it? Whatever the case may be you may not have the budget for it. Maybe your client hasn’t given you enough time for it; you need to ship it out. Well, I found a great solution in the Standard Time timesheet.

Within your timesheet you can set percentage levels for each task within the project.  When employees go over that percentage, they get a popup that says finish up or you’ll get locked out.

That’s how Standard Time keeps projects on task.
