In January 2017, manager John Mayo signed up to try 24onoff Time Tracking and Project Management for a 30 day free trial, and quickly found a user-friendly, time-saving solution to cut down on lengthy office hours.

We had a talk with John, to get a look at how his day-to-day changed after switching to 24onoff.

Easier to keep track of hours

– As we began to expand, I was finding it difficult to keep track of hours spent on each job and had been looking to implement a system to make this simpler, John explains. – Before 24onoff, my electricians would email me a time sheet at the end of every week, which was okay, but then I would  have to book all those hours to the different projects. Using 24onoff now, the workers have already filled in this information for me.

Quick response from the developers

– The trial worked out really well for me, John continues. – It was still in the development stage when I first started trialling it and there were a few issues with using it, but the development team have been very good at listening to the feedback given to them.

Instant, live overview for quicker invoicing

– The 24onoff system was beneficial from the start. Our employees have been very good at using the app on their phones, so I get a clear picture of their hours during the week. Having this better overview, means I can get invoices out quicker.

– It also means that at the end of the week, they don’t have to try and remember where they were on Monday morning, or exactly what time they left to go to another job, this gives a much more accurate overview, which is especially beneficial to our customers.

Reviewing previous jobs is easy

– I have always struggled to find time to review jobs after completion, to ensure I am costing for projects correctly. With the press of a few buttons now, I can easily review how many hours have been spent on each job. Also, being able to download the reports for each project is really valuable.

– I recently had a client who was surprised at how many hours had been spent on his project, and again, with the click of a few buttons I downloaded a report for him, so he could see exactly which contractor had been there, on which days and for how many hours.

– 24onoff made our business easier to run! With everything else that needs to be organised and projects being run and materials being ordered, the time tracking has become much easier to manage, John says in closing.
