Employee Timesheet Software vs. Free Excel Timesheets

Are spreadsheets still used for timesheets? In 2009, we published a press release saying that financial benefits can be gained from subscribing to an out-of-the-box solution for timesheet entry instead of using Excel spreadsheets.  Would you believe it when I say that it still holds true today?

The Perils of Deleting

If you are thinking of deleting employees, projects, tasks from your Dovico database — DON’T. I think the problem started with Windows 95; When Microsoft popularized the Recycle bin. When the definition of ‘delete’ was corrupted so that ‘delete’ doesn’t mean delete any more. I believe Apple actually invented the Recycle bin (Trash). Now, this may be somewhat of a shocker but we’ve been too busy developing new stuff to create a Recycle bin. Delete means delete…
