If you run your own business or are in a supervising role, knowing what your employees are doing during the day is incredibly important. Supervising a team comes with challenges, and project time management is essential to making sure your company is successful. Overseeing a team with certain goals in mind can be difficult when you aren’t sure where all your resources are going, how much time is being spent on certain tasks, and how accurate your project projection reports are.
No matter what your job title may be, there is a chance that using ManicTime to help with project time management could help your company increase the overall efficiency of your projects .
ManicTime is a time tracking software for computers. You can download it on any computers you want to track. It can also be installed on your internal server if you want to track multiple computers at the same time. This allows you to collect and compile data to create an overall picture of what your employees are doing, what projects they are working on, and where time is being allocated for various projects. The easy-to-read graphs created by ManicTime allow for an easy analysis of how projects are coming along. This turns project time management into a simple process.
Once you have ManicTime downloaded to your computer, the software will track multiple types of data. This information can be used to tell you when your employees are logging in and getting to work, what projects they are prioritizing, and if they are spending time on non-work related projects during the day.
Some businesses don’t have an office space that their employees can work in together, making project time management even more of a challenge. You may be a freelancer or work remotely, which makes having a time tracker very important. Not only can you stay on task, but you can also show your employer exactly what you are working on and have a record of the time you’ve spent on their assignment. This helps your employer keep track of the scope of the projects you are working on, and make adjustments as necessary.
If you work with employees remotely or are hiring freelancers for your business, being able to track their work is essential. ManicTime gives you the opportunity to see their progress in real time and show clients what their money is going towards.
ManicTime allows users to work online or offline, so no matter what your situation is, you’ll still be able to use the software wherever you go. If you need to work offline, you don’t need to worry about any complications with project time management. Additionally, ManicTime isn’t connected to the cloud, which means it is safer and more secure to use than many other time tracking software applications. The data is stored on your local machines, making the information less accessible to hackers.
Teams working in office environments can often feel frustrated or constrained when they are working. There may not be enough resources at their disposal compared to what the project requires. Too many or too few people working on a task can lead to miscommunications, anxiety, and a lack of productivity. Being able to see these struggles and back them up with ManicTime’s data could mean the difference between a stressed out team and one that works well together. Being able to more accurately allocate resources could lessen the amount of strain your team is under.
No matter what industry you work in, the professional relationships you create and nurture with your customers are your lifeline. Maintaining a great relationship with your clients is essential for success, and ManicTime can help you build this essential service.
Using ManicTime reports and screenshots, team managers and supervisors can show clients how their project is progressing, how resources have been allocated to the project, and how much more work is needed before the project is completed. This assures your client that you are staying on task, utilizing effective project time management and that their money is going towards the exact product or service that they ordered.
ManicTime is customizable for your teams. You can direct the software to send you data reports at the time intervals you choose with the specific information you want. This saves you time so that you don’t have to sift through data you don’t need. The time tracking software can also be integrated into other project time management software you may already be using, such as Jira. This allows you compile data from various sources and send reports to the departments or the team that needs that information the most.
Administrators can adjust how much data they want ManicTime to collect, how often updates are sent out, and how roles and tasks are allocated per individual or team. This lets you stay on top of project time management, see where changes need to be made, and implement those changes based on real and accurate data.
We are willing to bet that your business could benefit from ManicTime to improve your project time management, increase productivity, and continue to grow great relationships with your client base. In fact, we even offer a money back guarantee. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us today.
I do contract work and manage multiple projects where I bounce between projects on an almost by the minute basis. Once tagging is setup I can easily tag all my activities as I do them and my time accumulates in each project bucket. At the end of the day my timesheet is a breeze. This is the best tool I have found so far for a work style that involves heavy duty multi-tasking. I don't know what I would do without ManicTime. Well designed and thought out product. Cindy
Just renewed my licence for another year Just thought I'd let you know that this is one of the best pieces of software I've ever installed on my computer, free or paid for. I run my own business which principally relies on writing technical reports. ManicTime has made it so much easier to track my time over the various projects and therefore manage my fees and costs. (And your support has been excellent when I have had the odd problem). Paul
Just wanted to let you know that I think your software has helped me capture $1000's of dollars in revenue that I just wasn't billing before, as I wasn't doing a very good job of tracking my time. With ManicTime I get it all, and if I were ever to be audited by a client, I could give them every detail. Thanks so much! Linda
The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. The ability to tag and color-code my work allows me to see at a glance how my day has been going. I can organize and structure things as much or as little as I like. What a great product! Gary
