Let's face it; we are both guilty contributors for some of those billions in lost revenue! But, the purpose for an organization to implement employee time management software isn't to eliminate the small offender's like me and you, but to ensure that the worst offenders keep themselves inline. After all, at the end of the month I'm sure that just like me, you put in way more hours then what you get paid for!
Another benefit is when several projects are undertaken at one time, time tracking renders transparency of the actual labor involved in completion of projects. Organizations could use a manual system to track time expanded on work packages, projects and ultimately programs, but that in itself would be extremely time consuming and prone to errors. With less time spent on time-keeping, you will be able to spend more time on catering to your customer requirements.
Analyzing the actual time required for completion of tasks is of tremendous use in enhancing future estimations. It also provides a baseline for comparison when implementing process changes within your department.
