Professional services companies use timesheet systems; they need to know what their staff are working on. Without time recording, how would they know how much to charge each month?
Given that this is the air these companies breathe and the app stores of the world are full to the brim with timesheets systems, it is surprising how many companies we speak to simply cannot get this process right without extensive manual manipulation and post-timesheet editing.
Harmony is not a timesheet system. It is a contract and business control solution that includes time recording as a process integrated function within the overall business context.
On the face of it, this makes it seem a more complex proposition, so why should you consider it in place of a simple timesheet solution?
Well to start with, here are 15 very good reasons:
Even the best timesheet systems have inherent context-driven limitations that necessitate manual maintenance and review processes. They are surrounded by external systems and processes that are not correctly integrated and so create data noise and inaccurate enterprise reporting, no matter how much manual editing is carried out.
If you care about project management, project profitability, accurate billing, process efficiency and enterprise data reporting, even the best timesheet system will leave you wanting.
Harmony is designed to control the flow of business from lead to cash with total control of master data, no interfaces, no data misalignment - a single version of the truth across the organisation with the minimum of administration.
That is why people buy it.
