How is Dovico Timesheet used?

Managers use Dovico Timesheet to monitor Timesheets, Invoices and Expenses for employees, teams, and departments based on Time, Costs, Projects and Tasks. Thanks to today's competitive market place, managers need to run their organizations leaner, faster and smarter. Through better time tracking and project costing your managers will balance projects, manage time and save the corporation money.

Employees enter time and expenses against manager assigned tasks and the software provides productivity feedback on a continual basis in an intuitive nature to increase efficiency and reminds the employees to enter timesheets on a regular basis. An employee sign off process is included which helps reduce incorrect project-task selection by employees, and eliminates data entry errors. This workflow process checks the timesheet for errors, verifies the time, and allows each employee a final chance to change any entries before submission to their manager. Once submitted, timesheet entries cannot be modified by the employee unless rejected by their approving manager. Employee timesheets may be submitted as needed (daily, weekly etc.). See Product Tour

Is Dovico Software available as a hosted online solution?

Yes, Dovico offers a hosted solution. With the never-ending complexity and in-house knowledge required to install, secure and maintain software, companies are looking for simpler implementation alternatives when purchasing time and expense and time tracking software. By delivering Dovico Timesheet from our Web Servers, clients no longer need to concern themselves with all these technical complications. Companies can focus on increasing profitability and efficiencies from using our software rather than wasting energy and inevitable implementation delays on making sure they have a state-of-the-art server or have the latest security patch from Microsoft.

Although not a new concept, accessing software applications from third-party computer servers is gaining corporate acceptance as previously justifiable concerns about privacy, security and down-time have been overcome. This delivery method, Software as a Service (SAAS), relieves the individual companies from all the headaches and roadblocks of installing web timesheet software. Some clients have even admitted selecting the Hosted solution to bypass already resource drained IT departments.

Providing them with only the information that is needed by that employee to do his/her role within the organization.

Should I develop this application myself?

Off the shelf products (like Dovico Timesheet) are:

  1. Sold in large numbers and therefore are less expensive than "creating" your own.
  2. Ongoing compatibility testing and upgrades are released regularly.
  3. Products are kept up-to-date with changing technologies (i.e. Operating systems, Databases, etc.).
  4. Software development companies have spent years researching and developing their applications to ensure that it is reliable and that it offers what users require.

Which option suits your needs?

Advances in information technology have created more complexity in defining costs and risks associated with building your own solution. At the same time, a high sense of urgency to make these decisions exists. When faced with the very important question of whether to buy an off-the-shelf time tracking software or to "create" your own, companies need to evaluate costs (including risks) and benefits of both alternatives. However, because costs and risks associated with in-house software development are most often underestimated, it is important to consider what could happen when a company decides to develop their own application.

What do I need to know about Dovico?

How long has Dovico been in business?

A company with 15 + years experience has proven it can stand the test of time. It is preventative practice for you to ask yourself, "Will this company be there to support us in one to three years?". Training staff and implementing new web timesheet software is too expensive to make a decision without this consideration.

Is Dovico financially stable?

Although private companies don't publish their profit ratios, you may want to ask this question and get a reaction. Consider the impact of training your staff ($$$) and find out that the company is having financial problems! Any corporate financial problems can be an especially detrimental blow in the case of Hosted (SaaS) Software solutions, as you could lose your entire database (as we have seen in many cases). Rest assured, Dovico is a profitable project time management software company.

Does Dovico provide the highest level of product and service support?

Every company claims they have great customer service and support. Ways to evaluate this are to call and see if you speak to a machine or a real person. If you are greeted by a machine in normal business hours, then you are already getting a message of your importance.
