“She turned me on to QuickBooks Time if for nothing else than to track my own time,” said Katey. “And I’ve learned the importance of tracking your own time.”
Katey recalled a past job where management required the team to conduct a time study when productivity levels were down. She said tracking time helped her discover efficiencies and inefficiencies. These studies not only helped Katey become more efficient, but they helped her learn a lot about how she spent her time on the job.
With the value of those time studies in mind, these days, Katey uses QuickBooks Time tracking to manage her time more wisely and report on how her time is delegated to determine which activities and projects need more or less of her attention. Whether she’s using the mobile app or web dashboard, QuickBooks Time comes complete with detailed reporting and the ability to track time against multiple projects, which is especially useful for any PRO, accountant, or business owner who’s concerned with productivity and deadlines.
This powerful insight helps Katey and hard-working accountants like her better understand how to adjust their priorities and pivot when necessary. Time saved on tasks for the firm can be used on clients who need more personalized attention. And time saved on a client’s payroll or employee time tracking can be used to network the firm, for education courses and webinars, and more. Not just great for saving time, when used in conjunction with major accounting tools, PROs can foster a seamless time-tracking-to-payroll experience for their clients.
Taking QuickBooks Time with her wherever she goes, whether it's Europe, Central America, or back home in the midwest, Katey tracks her time to find out how to better serve the growing millennial client base she’s built on connections and referrals.
