Using a spreadsheet as a method of timekeeping for billing clients is a no-brainer. The problem with spreadsheet timekeeping is that it doesn’t scale very well. As your employee numbers grow, so does the pain of billable time collection. If you are reading this, you’ve either experienced this pain in the past or are experiencing it now. Having a timesheet solution that scales with your team’s growth while keeping you integrated with your favourite Microsft Excel spreadsheet is crucial.
Excel makes billing time easier
You know your stuff when it comes to Excel. It’s familiar, and it’s powerful. Excel does a fantastic job crunching the numbers in a way that feels sensible. So why would you ever leave it? I don’t blame you.
For a couple of employees, tracking time in Excel is just fine, but it was just not built to handle 25+ timesheets submitted on time for the next billing cycle. You still have to do a lot of data entry and massaging to make that magic happen.
Imagine how powerful your labour costing report would be if you could feed live up-to-date timesheet data right into it. Consider the time you would save when billing clients with instant timesheet information at your fingertips.

“We have gotten spoiled!”
Before we started using Dovico in 2008, each employee was using a company spread sheet to manually keep track of time and printing them off to hand in every month. The huge time savings during billing and payroll more than offset the price.
We now have a resource % billable/non-billable report that lets us know our estimated revenue for each month and how we are comparing billable/non-billable to the industry.
For growing businesses looking for a better way to track employee time and activity.
