    You might want to have a read of this comparison and then see what best suits your business.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_time-tracking_software
    If there is something you think is suitable, Google the search terms to see what else pops up. I would think it would be fairly easy to find something to begin with that costs about $10 (USD) a month so even better than £10 a month until you see what works for you

    Initially, we look at salesforce software but a comparison of software pricing is the little bit high. So we visit software comparison sites then choose Apptivo software for billing and it is cost affordable.

    Check software pricing comparison----> http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2367263,00.asp# n

    Secrets of project companies: how to make your project successful

    Project management is one of the most interesting and, at the same time, most complicated areas of business. Managing of employees in a project has its own specific features and differs from managing of full-time workers. It would be fair to say that only people can guarantee the success of any project. A project team plays the leading role in the future of a project. And the main aim of each manager is to organize working process as effectively as it is possible. Accurate documentation management, using of a time tracker and analysis of current results – all these things can help to make a successful project.

    First steps. Nice to meet you!

    In the very beginning of the work on a project there are several important things which should be under a manager’s control. They are:

    • recruitment

    • setting of goals and objectives

    • discussing the ways of project implementation.
    Very often employees are afraid of difficulties concerning the work on a project which they are to meet in the nearest future. A manager should discuss all possible problems and try to encourage a project team. People should be inspired by the great results which can be obtained!

    But not only leadership skills and organizational qualities of a manager help to gain a result. Data from a time tracker can also help a leader to find out weak points of a team to make its work more effective.

    Not only to support, but also to control

    Nowadays every person tries to work effectively. No one wants to run idle. Most successful businessmen always analyze their working time and try to exclude the things which aren’t effective. That means that one more important objective for a manager who runs a project is not only to set a team for success but also to control its effectiveness.

    One of the easiest and most comfortable ways of making time work on you is using of a time tracker. One can say that if a project team is under a time tracker control so that means that your manager doesn’t trust you. But the situation can be totally opposite. Following the data from a time tracker, a project team can see the things which can optimize their work and save them from useless activities. That is why time trackers are indispensable tools of effective business.

    When everything is fine

    If previous stages of working on a project passed successfully, the following step for a leader is not to let a team relax and to keep them up till the end of a project. The final part of project work is very important but still it is sometimes hard to motivate employees as it was before the project implementation. One of the best tools for this, again, can be a time tracker. It can help you to calculate compensation bonuses for those employees who made better results than the others and to motivate not very inspired or tired workers to finish their work more successfully. A time tracker, such as, for example, CrocoTime software can help you to optimize your business processes and to make your work on a project as effective as possible.
