Most large corporations and companies use various time tracking tools in different departments and subsidiaries. Often, the same systems are used for many years without switching or considering alternatives. After all, they work, right?

It may seem safe and predictable to track hours in the same way you always have, but are you certain that it is the most efficient method to do so?

1. You find yourself in a multitude of systems that do not communicate with each other

Logging hours may seem quick and easy from an employee's perspective. However, for those in managerial positions, extracting data from numerous non-communicating systems can be a time-consuming and cumbersome task.

Switching to integrated systems like Busy's time tracking can streamline operations for everyone in the company, making the workday smoother and more efficient.


2. Eliminate unnecessary steps in the workflow

For employees, it is crucial to be able to quickly, easily, and seamlessly track hours. However, even though time tracking may fulfill all these requirements, it can pose challenges for managers, HR personnel, and accounting departments who need to extract information about employees, hours, and projects from internal systems for purposes such as reports or payroll processing.

It is common for subsidiaries to use their own systems, consisting of different processes that do not communicate with each other, requiring a significant amount of time just to gather the necessary data.

But it doesn't have to be this way. With a unified system across the entire corporation, the data will already exist where it is needed. Unnecessary steps in the workflow are eliminated, control is enhanced, and a better overall picture is obtained with a common time tool for the whole corporation. You gain full control over hours, capacity, and profitability, ensuring the smoothest flow within the corporation, between departments, and in the daily work routine.


3. Save time and get everything you need in one system

For many, Busy is known solely as a time tracking system that gives employees a good handle on what they have done and what they need to do. For others, Busy is better recognized as a planning or resource management tool. This tool provides project and department managers with a clear overview of their employees, allowing them to plan long periods ahead with just a few clicks.

As a user, you save a significant amount of time with Busy because everything happens within one system. Planned time automatically converts to recorded time, eliminating the need for double hours entry. Flexitime, vacation, and absences are also automatically calculated in the time bank.

You can easily retrieve accurate payroll data with approval functions. Additionally, you can create orders with time-based data for quick and smooth invoicing. Busy can also be seamlessly integrated with accounting systems you already use.
