A timesheet application records the time spent on various tasks and projects by an organization’s employees. By tracking employee effort, a timesheet can provide a number of benefits to an organization.

Employees can record their effort spent on particular tasks and different projects. Managers can review and approve or reject logged time. Approved timesheets can be used by HR for payroll processing.

But it doesn’t stop there – there are many other uses for the data recorded in timesheets. It can be used to:

  • Monitor projects
  • Track productivity
  • Calculate labor costs
  • Bill clients
  • Forecast future needs
  • Allocate department budgets
  • Determine profits

As you can see, the data in timesheets is a rich resource that can be put to good use if you leverage maximum value from the recorded data. Timesheets help managers track resource consumption and also provide insight into project effectiveness which plays a part in a company’s long-term growth and success.

Let’s take a look at the 5 main benefits of timesheets:

  1. Improved Workflow
  2. Improved Task Management
  3. Efficient Payroll Management
  4. Effective Cost Management
  5. Accurate Billing

These company-wide benefits can lead to greater success for the organization at all levels and provide meaningful data to support business strategies. Timesheets offer a lot of value for a seemingly simple application.
