How To Make Time Recording Easier With Project ERP

Timesheets. A thorn in the side of every professional services firm and worker alike. From the company’s point of view they are fundamental when it comes to reclaiming that all important revenue. From the employee’s point of view, they are a tedious process that distracts them from the job they love. With your business’s profitability at stake, you’ll want to do whatever you can to encourage accurate time recording at your firm. But what steps can you take to get your employees on board?

1. Communicate the facts about lost time

2. Provide your staff with the tools they need

3. Consider mobile compatibility

4. Encourage cultural change with project-based ERP

 

You may have already tried these tips for improving your time recording processes and still feel you are losing the battle when it comes to timesheets completion at your firm. If so, you may need to consider taking things a step further at your firm by igniting cultural change. An ERP system with built in project functionality could help shape behaviour and win your staff around to taking time recording more seriously.

Giving your employees access to a single dashboard that relates project based information with operational data will install a greater sense of accountability. Employees that are able to see firsthand how omitting just an hour of time can affect the profitability of their project – and in turn the prosperity of the company – will be more incentivised to act. This could be the catalyst you need to really ease timesheet pains at your firm.
