Track client billable & non-billable time. Increased our billable hours by 17% by tracking lost time and also increased our productivity by not losing hours spent filling out manual time sheets each week.
My team and I were trying to find an automated time tracker for how long we spend on specific client projects & jobs. Some projects are individual and others we work together as a team but remotely. The Team version let us report on the total team's time spent & activities on these projects. We also have an audit trail for any client request. We tried the start and stops time trackers, but they all had obvious user faults if you forget to start/stop and/or the time it took to allocate time to each little project. We have many projects and needed something to allow us to still multitask and track the billable hours we spend on clients, along with the non-billables to optimize our in-office & remote team efforts. With the software installed on our computers we just go about our normal day and the WiseTime software tracks our time and activity on everything we do in the background, love that! Then at any point, we can review our time on the online Console (dashboard) and do any client/job allocations. It has an a handy auto-tagging feature that auto tags/labels our time spent on client projects & jobs by scanning each activity for a predefined keyword list. A nice feature for my own personal privacy is the privacy exclusion which lets me add software or websites to exclude from the tracking, ie if I'm taking a break and checking personal e-mail, Skyping, Amazon shopping, etc. It just automatically doesn't track them if I include them in the list. Gave me peace of mind.
No mobile app. Would be nice to have, but I'm still able to allocate onsite meetings manually on my iPhone's browser. Doesn't track attendance, but that wasn't what we were focused on.

We could use WiseTime easily generate and send reports through the console online. We have set up reports to be scheduled for specific dates or timestamps, and are generated as PDF or Excel files.
Best of WiseTime is that collects data without an Internet connection, so users need not be connected.
The function of WiseTime Console is based on the cloud, and you can not access this module when you are not connected to the Internet. This is definitely a negative for the operation of the software aspect.

I like that it can track your activities on your computer and give a summary about your time usage and it also has the ability to exclude tracking certain apps and can function without the internet.
I don't have anything that I dislike about this product, it perfectly suits my needs.
