CRM with time recording

Capture time without wasting time

Wondering why you need a CRM with time recording? Time tracking is of great importance in many industries. This can be about invoicing, calculations or even sales control processes.

Frequently, the more accurate, the better. However, the detailed recording and processing of times spent, for example, with specific customers, projects or subprojects, can quickly become a time-eater itself. Smart interfaces and integrations in your CRM software can help.

Efficiently record employee hours

Especially in the case of project-related work, the time recording of employees is of great importance. With a time recording system integrated in CRM, you make it easy for your employees to assign the working hours to the various customers, projects or sub-projects already created in CRM.

Thanks to the assignment by the project manager, the employee is only given the orders for time recording, for which he is also to work. Additional costs, such as travel expenses, can be recorded as well as billing-relevant information or the current project status.

Various types of recording, such as activities, breaks, journey times or holidays, also contribute to the detailed documentation of employee times. This ensures that everyone involved is always present at what time, when which service was provided by the employee. The execution location can also be easily recorded by GPS tracking.

Such a system pays off especially for sales representatives, whether in service or sales. Using a CRM app, the times can be entered directly on site at the customer’s premises after the work has been completed. This does not mean that details are forgotten at the end of the working day.

Times smart recorded for invoicing or costing

No matter how you ultimately make your billing, accurate time tracking pays off. This is of course especially true if your ERP system is also linked to your CRM software.

If you calculate by hours, the time registrations collected in CRM and already sorted on cost points can be transferred to ERP and simply integrated into the invoicing. Then there is no need to dig through and assign timetables. With just a few clicks, the accounting department has everything it needs.

If you charge for fixed prices instead, the documentation of working hours is still available. You can easily check your pricing calculations and adjust them based on lessons learned.

The review, release and final transfer of the data to the billing is always carried out by the project manager. Integrated evaluations of the booked services ensure the transparency required by the project manager, controlling and management.
