Time Tracking Features

For businesses that are looking to gain a handle on juggling several projects at once while tracking multiple employees’ logged hours, the Nutcache time management solution can help.

 

Track Projects

Monitor progress and hours logged for each project and ensure that you never lose track of the number of hours of work your business has put into a client project. Avoid going over budget by viewing time and cost estimates in comparison to real time status updates while keeping your clients better informed of project advancement.

  

Log Employee Hours

With several employees working on multiple projects at once, logging employee hours can be a challenge. Skip the headache and forget Excel; the Nutcache time management tool allows business owners to create and print detailed timesheet reports broken down by employee and/or project. Logged hours can also be converted into invoices, which can then be sent to clients.
