There's plenty of paid as well as free time tracking apps available in the market. Time tracking apps find two main use cases as far as remote teams go:
When working with an external client, remote teams use these apps to document the number of hours worked and bill the client.
Internally, time tracking apps are used to estimate the effort put by individual team members or even external contractors.
Things to consider when choosing either paid or free time tracking apps:
We have compiled the top 3 criteria to consider when choosing either paid or free time tracking apps for your team/ organization. Do check them out and let us know if we missed something and you feel there are other criteria to look for, too. Here's our list:
Team Size: Smaller teams can be effectively managed using simple tools like Atto. It has features such as time tracking, GPS tracking (extremely useful for remote teams), and team activity insights. Larger teams usually require additional features such as integration with third-party services such as Zapier, Gitlab, Hubspot, Google Calendar, etc., uptime SLA’s and intelligence reporting to name a few. A tool like nTask is more suited here.
Compatibility with existing tools/ processes: While working remotely, team members usually have their own work setup, making time tracking a necessity. Time tracking applications can be a Chrome extension, software, or a plug-in and its compatibility needs to be checked across different OSs - Windows, Android, iOS, MacOS or Linux, team processes, and existing tools.
Time Zone management: Given the nature of remote work, it is expected that your teammates probably reside in meridians far away from each other. Tracking time across the time zones that your team is in goes a long way in making sure no member is working at ungodly hours and keeping everyone’s comfort in mind. Check out SpaceTime as an example.
