What is time tracking ?

Time tracking is the process of tracking and recording the time that everyone within your company spends working.

Companies can use monitoring software to understand what employees are doing during work hours, which can be used to create client invoices and pay hourly staff or freelancers.

Many different businesses use time tracking in some way. You can find many examples of this across a plethora of industries, from construction to digital agencies, from software developers to landscaping companies.

Time tracking provides a number of benefits to businesses. These benefits will be discussed in the following points.
