Tracking time to submit to timesheets is an inherent problem in many industries, including our own.

We decided to tackle the problem head-on.

Many industries and organizations deal with time and money. As a result, successful monitoring of time is key to efficient billing and effective scoping. Although there are a plethora of timesheet systems adopted by these companies and organization to collect this data from their employees the inherent problem in the accuracy of it lies in the inability of the employees to effectively keep track of what they have done, and when.

The Finlabs Approach

The Finlabs Approach

The Finlabs Approach

Being Finlabs we didn't immediately dive into some technical wizardry to theoretically solve the problem. We took a step back and really looked at how the day of these employees was structured. The bottom line is that it often isn't. Tasks are started and then diverted. Meetings overrun and push other work out. And fire drill projects involve dropping everything unexpectedly to tackle something that was maybe not even on your radar. As a result, we didn't want to look forward. That, to us, was an unknown. However, everything that has already happened is understood and a known quantity. We decided to set up a simple system to repeatedly ask our users to log what they have just done, and not what they are about to do. This taps into the users' memory when the information is fresh and allows them to dispense with the need to lock anything into their long-term memory. A win-win in our book.

Time is money. Time to make it pay!

As testing commenced it became clear that a simple solution, without all the bells, whistles, and integrations was one that was desired. Clearly many solutions on the market were either too convoluted or simply asked the users to invest in a plethora of tools and features they were never going to use. By simply focusing exclusively on the task monitoring we were hitting a baseline of users that included both the everyday employee of a company that requires timesheets to be filled out and the freelancers and independent contractors who need to manage their time across different clients and projects.

As TicTok has evolved, the range of industries that have a need for a simple solution like this has become more and more apparent. It doesn't matter what you do, time is money and staying on top of what you do and how much of it is key to everybody understanding their own budgeting. We already have a number of ideas to work in to the project over time and have a solid set of companies to help us put meat on the bones of specific industry needs.

From here TicTok will evolve where the needs and desires of our users steer us. If you would like to get involved and have your voice heard please get in touch
