Time tracking software to help manage remote team


Without the ability to check in on teams working together in an office, founders might find time-tracking software useful for managing projects remotely.

The best software combines time management with other business support features, sometimes including expensing tools and simple payroll.

Combining time-tracking and attendance figures with project costing tools, this is an all-rounder platform. Managers can track timesheets and expenses, and manage time off. There’s also the option to give clients visibility over all their metrics through the platform.


As the name suggests this platform’s USP is its ability to smooth accounting processes alongside a built-in time tracker. It can create recurring invoices (either manually or automatically, based on project time) and gather data for reporting.


This would be useful for teams working from home, but really comes into its own for teams working on multiple different sites – perhaps in separate offices, or seconded to clients. Its GPS tracking feature involves geofencing a custom location which triggers sign-in automatically. Hubstaff can also create simple invoices as well as monitor productivity.


A good platform for those who forget to use their software. The app will send a reminder to users if they haven’t started a tracking timer, and its integration with multiple other apps online mean less switching between distracting sites. It also includes a manual time-entry feature for those less keen on real-time tracking.


This platform is more focused on monitoring productivity and the way that employees spend their time. As well as tracking employees’ time and location (where needed), the app tracks and can report on productivity levels. Still, that level of management might not suit all businesses, nor all employees, so it’s always best to fully research the options available.
