Frequently Asked Questions

  • Time management software, also known as a time tracking app, is a time management tool that gives you the ability to track the amount of time you and your team members spend on the various projects your business takes on.  

    Additionally, many time tracker apps, like Harvest, provide additional resources to help empower your team and keep your projects on track, all within a mobile app. These can include task managers, productivity tools, budget tracking, and insights to help you make better business decisions and optimize your processes. 

    For example, Harvest's easy-to-use time management software turns your team's tracked time into visualized reports that provide a unique insight into how your team is spending work hours. This way you can see who is under-utilized, who is facing burnout, and when it's time to hire new employees to drive the growth of your business. 

    Time management software can also help with budget tracking. Harvest updates your project budgets in real time to help you keep your projects profitable and running smoothly. You can also keep track of internal costs and rates and review past project data to make smarter decisions for future plans.

  • Time management among your team and business is critical to the success of your projects. Usiong effective time management allows your team to plan out their days knowing all the necessary tasks are completed in a limited amount of time without experiencing burnout. 

    Teams who don’t utilize an effective time management strategy are more likely to delay project deadlines, produce work that doesn't meet company standards, disrupt work/life balance and feel more stressed. 

    What are the benefits of time management? For starters, a solid time management strategy motivates your team to complete their goals, in less time. If your team can manage their time effectively, they have a much larger chance of using the limited hours in the workday to achieve the greatest possible results. 

    It’s easy for your team to get distracted during the eight hours of the day responding to emails, planning too many meetings, and other tasks. But with solid strategy behind time management, they're more likely to advance projects, engage in smart planning strategies, and work to sharpen their skills overall.
