How Does Web-Based Time Tracking Software Help Small Businesses?


Rikke Westvig

Tracking time has always been a good idea for businesses. However, in the past, it could be quite a pain, actually. There were some troubles with those older methods though.

This meant that if someone was working out of the office, he or she would not be able to fill out the information for the time tracker.
