Time recording and billing

Time recording and billing

We have a client who work on a number of contracts. They employ 100/200 staff who are charged out at agreed rates for normal and overtime. They work from dailt time attendance records maintained by foremen which typically will cover 20/30 employees. There will be various grades of staff. Currently the data is collated on spreadsheets and invoiced fortnightly to the main contractor with the spreadsheet schedules of time worked etc. Does anyone know of a turnkey product that would cope with this or do we need to use a database? Thanks in advance for any help

have you thought of Quick Books
Hi Bob, have you thought of using Quick Books for time recording and billing?

The time recording software is pretty comprehensive. The only downside is that it would be expensive to have a registered copy of the software on everybodies pc. Having the software on just one machine might not be what you were thinking of, but it is a cost effective solution!

The link between billing and time recording is pretty good as well.
