Why Use Clockify
Get an accurate look at your workweek
When you start tracking time with Clockify, you'll have real data that shows you exactly where your time goes so you can see improve your productivity.
How it works
When you begin working on something, just type what you're working on and start the timer. When you finish, stop the timer and Clockify will save the time entry.
At the end of the day, you can run a report and get an objective look at your business in one easy-to-scan chart.
And at the end of the month, you'll be able to analyze every week, identify time-drains, and improve efficiency.
Clockify's reports will help you answer:
- ✓Am I spending too much time on emails?
- ✓What sort of work takes up most of my time?
- ✓How can I spend more time on important/profitable tasks?
- ✓What jobs can I delegate or forego?
- ✓How much time will a new project take, based on past data?
Improve profitability of your projects
Whether you bill by the hour or charge a flat rate, Clockify can help you see how profitable your projects are and whether you should increase your hourly rate.
How it works
First, mark time entries as billable or unbillable, and allocate them to projects.
Then, run a report in Clockify that will break down all the time entries by project and client so you can see how profitable your week was.
What often happens when you do client work is that you spend a lot of time on unbillable activities (like phone calls, commute, feedback), which in turn lowers your real hourly rate.
Here's how you can calculate your real hourly rate:
(Billable time + Unbillable time) / How much you got paid
If your real hourly rate is too low, you'll know it's time to either raise your prices or limit the scope of your work. Also, once you know your real hourly rate, you can answer the most important question: “Was that project really worth the hassle?”.
Show your clients how much you've worked
If you can't show your clients where your every minute (and their dollar) went, you'll have trouble gaining their trust. Clockify lets you show your clients a detailed breakdown of all your time so you can bill them easier.
How it works
Mark each time record as billable or unbillable. Then, when the time comes to issue an invoice, simply run a report in Clockify, filter by time period/project/billability, and download the results in PDF or Excel.
You can also share and print the report, give it to your accountant, import data into some invoicing software, or send a link to the online report to your client so they can monitor how much you work in real time.
You can also go a step further and show clients every time entry you've spent working on their project but which you didn't charge for. Once they see how much work you really do for them, they'll appreciate you more.
See how your team is allocating their time
No matter if you have just an assistant or manage a big team, you need to know what your team worked on and how much.
How it works
Invite your whole team to Clockify so they can log the time they spend on tasks, customers, and internal projects. Unlike other time trackers, Clockify lets you have unlimited users, for free.
As your team tracks time, you can see what they worked on and how much in a report. When the time comes for payroll, just run the report to see how much you need to pay them.
With Clockify, you can see:
- ✓How many hours everyone worked each day
- ✓Who has the most experience with some project
- ✓How long it takes to finish tasks and projects
- ✓What activities take up the most time
You don't have to worry about who can do or see what in Clockify. You can have a separate workspace for each department, plus you can control who can see hourly rates, projects, and other people's time entries.
Clockify is for teams that:
- ✓Loosely manage time and don't know their true productivity
- ✓Have a lot of team members and need accountability
- ✓Need to show clients where they spend time
- ✓Don't want to bother with complicated time tracking systems
