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.

            how much money you've earned
Reports show you billable vs non-billable time across the whole week.

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.
