Time Management Software

What Makes WorkOtter the Best Time Management Software for You?

Here are the top reasons our customers tell us why they chose WorkOtter.

  • Time PLUS Status Reporting

    Everyone hates entering their time. But what if you could transform the typical timesheet into an interactive status report where users can also update:

    • Estimates to Complete
    • Collaboration Notes to Teammates Assigned
    • Notes to the Project Manager (Issues, Questions, Concerns)
    • Best Forecasted Assignment End Date

    Now users can reduce the amount of time spent updating actuals, assignments, due dates, and status by entering it all on a single consolidated screen. WorkOtter saves companies thousands of hours in otherwise wasteful administration and gets people back to work fast.

  • Multi Level Approvals (Or Auto Approve)

    While WorkOtter can auto-generate timesheets (and auto approve time), for many companies timesheet data updates projects, produces financials (billable, internal, CAPEX), cross charges, backs up invoices from vendors, and is used to validate estimates. With all that on the line proper review and validation is a must. WorkOtter approval dashboards include:

    • Views of everyone who hasn’t submitted enough time
    • Auto emails for everyone who missed a timesheet deadline
    • Approval as manager, resource manager, or project manager (or multiple)
    • Rejection with notes and emails for correction
    • Locking time periods for accounting close of month business

    All this in a very simple to use system with Red, Yellow, Green indicators by person, project, and approver so everyone know what exactly has been submitted (and what is left to approve).

  • Track Time To Anything

    WorkOtter is not unique in its ability to setup work types and log critical non-workplan attributes using PMI standards and simple forms. What is unique is these items can all be assigned, estimated, and tracked on timesheets so you can see how your estimates plans are progressing along with other non-workplan items including:

    • Issues
    • Risks
    • Changes
    • Action Items
    • Support Items

    Unlike other solutions where you have to design all the forms for non-work that is already standardized by PMI, WorkOtter integrates all these features into the timesheets, dashboards, and reports so that you can get started FAST and leverage existing best practices.

  • Robust Timesheet Reporting

    Knowing how you spend your time is one thing. Knowing how that relates to customers, priorities, project types (admin, support, small, and normal), and company objectives is another. WorkOtter has over a dozen pre-built reports and an amazing point and click dashboard builder that will quickly help you:

    • Show Team Utilization vs Forecasting
    • Highlight projects under-performing baselines
    • Identify capacity by location, role, or team
    • Breakdown time by admin, support, capital, customer, and other buckets you establish

    Everyone has a timesheet. With WorkOtter you have the wisdom and predictive ability to make your company more agile, efficient, and effective so you can grow with the best time management software available.

Every WorkOtter Account Includes (No Extra Charge)

  • Private Cloud Services

    WorkOtter is hosted in a top tier, all steel frame, secure building. It is one of the largest facilities in the central United States. We designed our own cloud once we realized that public commercial clouds were slower, less secure, and more susceptible to performance issues.

  • Secured Data

    WorkOtter utilizes banking grade, non open source SSL encryption and is SOC2 (formerly SSAE -16 and SAS70) and U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Certified. We use only Oracle database services for further security, performance and up-time.

  • 24/7 Support

    As good as WorkOtter is, our personal support is better. You may not think that is very important if you are researching vendors, but we (and our customers) assure you – your implementation depends as much on the software features as the company that stands behind it.
