A wise man once sang that time keeps on slippin’ (slippin’, slippin’) into the future. But when you’re at work, it’s crucial to not let time, or expenses, slip through the cracks. OfficeTime is a robust time and expense tracker that scales from a single person to a small business. It’s great for tracking billable hours, creating invoices, and generating quick expense reports, and it syncs seamlessly between your Mac (or PC), iPhone, and iPad over the local network.
The Mac version has tons of thoughtful touches. When you step away from your computer and then return, a handy dialog offers to subtract the idle time from the open session, keep the time, or move it to another category. The list of projects and time/expense categories is easy to customize, including separators to visually group related entries. The preferences pack in tons of settings, from how to round time to automatic backups. OfficeTime can even sync with iCal, sending OfficeTime sessions to iCal, copying iCal events into OfficeTime, or both.
If you track it, they will pay.
The detailed reports are just as flexible. You can make one for expenses, time, or both. Highlight any category, any employee, any project, or any mix of those, and a pie chart shows your data at a glance. When you’ve tweaked the settings, click Export for a TXT file that will open in Excel, or Create Invoice for a rich-text file—you can even use a custom template. The iOS app easily tracks time and expenses too, and can email reports from inside the app in Numbers, Excel, or plain-text formats.
The bottom line. Whether you bill by the hour, or you just want to track how your own time is being spent or wasted, OfficeTime is flexible, affordable (no monthly fee), and just plain smart.
