Solutions on the market

Widely adopted time and project tracking systems give a general solution to trace time and tasks and create reports on top of this data. These solutions:

  • Focus on a project based activities, with having less accent on measuring and fine-tuning the overall efficiency of corporate processes
  • Their published data source is either closed or license-protected, which allows restricted access, which do not support custom needs for unique reports and data entry
  • Integration to existing corporate systems is cumbersome, supported mostly by manual data transfer
  • Their licensing structure is inflexible, realizing additional maintenance costs or security risk for the customer
  • Limited customization – any additional needs arising could be only implemented with significant investment
