GetApp’s Integration Leaders in Time Tracking

What we'll cover

Software integrations form an indispensable part of the IT strategy of most businesses. Not only do they foster seamless information flow between applications, but they also boost process efficiency, increase data visibility, and consolidate disparate information sources.

When it comes to integration potential, all software solutions aren’t created equal. Some tools are clear winners and can integrate with a variety of solutions, while others integrate with only a handful.

Analyzing products specifically for their integration capabilities can be labor intensive. To save you time, we compiled a report to help you access relevant integration data for time tracking software.

With this report, we want to help you select a time tracking tool that offers maximum integration potential. We analyzed integration data for some of the highest-rated products on the market and compiled our findings into this report. (View the complete selection methodology for these products at the bottom of this page.)

The Integration Leaders grid above showcases products with the highest integration scores based on user reviews on GetApp. (See the complete report methodology at the bottom of this page.)

On the grid, products are arranged in increasing order of their overall ratings (bottom to top) and integration scores (left to right). That means products higher up on the grid have higher overall ratings and products toward the right have higher integration scores. Therefore, products in the top right zone of the grid rank higher in overall ratings as well as integration scores compared to other products on the grid.

Most common app integrations

It can be challenging to figure out which tools a software product integrates with. Software providers may not explicitly mention this information on their product websites or that information may be buried on a webpage.

In this section, we look at the specific integration capabilities of GetApp’s time tracking Integration Leaders.

We’ve built a matrix that allows you to compare how well our time tracking Integration Leaders play with popular apps such as Jira, Slack, GitLab, and Google Workspace. We’ve divided these apps into three categories: project management, productivity, and DevOps.

Managers are able to see what their activity and performance looks like giving them better insight into what is working well. The payroll automation has been one of the biggest benefits as we were running payrolls manually through Wise. The integration has saved us hours on payroll and gives managers better insight into how much their employees are working."

User review excerpts

To help you understand how reviewers feel about 7shifts’ integration capabilities, here are some excerpts from the most positive user reviews on GetApp that mention integration:

"The integration of 7Shifts labour reports to our POS TouchBistro sales reports has been the perfect marriage. 

The interface of 7Shifts software has been easy to understand and use with admin, managers and staff levels."

"We have had a great experience overall. It has saved us so much time with their algorithm for scheduling, their ability to forecast given last years data (from the POS integration), and built in communication for messaging both general and specific (private messenger). We are still discovering tools and features that we utilize as we grow into new areas of our business, or try and mitigate regular issues more efficiently. "

“Interface is sleek. Easy to use. Updates constantly. Great customer service. Price is a little steep per month. Integration with CAKE system seemed to be delayed longer than expected.”

Report methodology

Integration Leaders reports highlight top-ranked products based on ratings from end users. Products are scored on two dimensions: integration score and overall rating.

1. Integration score is calculated based on the sentiment of user reviews that describe a product’s integration capabilities, based on our proprietary assessment.

2. Overall rating score is calculated based on the overall user ratings for each product. Newer ratings are weighted more heavily.

Data sources include approved user reviews, public data sources, and data from technology vendors. Please refer to the GetApp Community Guidelines for more information.

To be eligible for inclusion in a category, a product must meet the following criteria:

  • Have at least 20 unique product reviews published on GetApp within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report.

  • Achieve a minimum normalized overall rating (as of March 2022).

  • Have at least 10 unique product reviews that discuss the quality of that product’s integrations with other products.

  • Achieve a minimum positive sentiment score for reviews that describe integrations, based on our proprietary assessment.

  • Show evidence of offering required functionality as demonstrated by publicly available sources, such as the vendor’s website.

The matrix table showing each product’s integrations with the most commonly integrated apps in the market is supplemental; that data does not factor into a product’s qualification for, scores in, or placement on the Integration Leaders chart.

The data used in the matrix table was collected from vendor websites and other publicly available data sources. Individual integration capabilities were not evaluated by the GetApp team. The data is believed to be accurate at the time of publication, but readers should note that vendors will continue to expand and change the integrations they offer over time. Our reports will not reflect such changes in real time; such changes will be reflected if and when we update the report in the future.

The review excerpts provided are based on what users liked about the integration functionality/ability of the product within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report. Review excerpts are passages extracted from longer reviews written by verified reviewers. We obtain these excerpts by applying an algorithm that considers factors including, but not limited to, word count and topic coverage. Excerpts are evaluated for positive or negative sentiment and receive a sentiment score. We are only highlighting excerpts with the highest positive sentiment scores in this document.

Excerpts represent user opinion and do not represent the views of, nor constitute an endorsement by GetApp or its affiliates. Excerpts are not edited for clarity or grammar.

Disclaimer:At GetApp, we objectively select and rank products based on a methodology developed by our research team. Some vendors pay us when they receive web traffic, but this has no influence on our methodology.

We conducted this analysis based on reviews and ratings data as of March 2022. In order to present the most up-to-date information, the product cards above show real-time ratings. Please note that this means the ratings value in the product card may not reflect the ratings value at the time of analysis.

The full text of the reviews excerpted are from published reviews on GetApp.com for the associated products on the date this content was published. GetApp makes no guarantee that the reviews will remain posted for the entire period this report is active.
