How was timeBro able to solve the problem?
Kristoffer: timeBro makes logging times a breeze, so there’s really no reason not to do it. It also lets you personally see what kind of “time thieves” you’re dealing with (e-mail, colleagues storming into the office, Facebook, etc). Of course, the built-in privacy oft the tool helps adoption as well. Personal improvement can only come from within and cannot be imposed by the company
You don’t forget to turn on or turn off a timer. I trust timeBro tracking my times in the background, and at the end of the day, I can create the time reports accordingly.
I would like to point out another benefit of timeBro as well. We’re a distributed company, and informing colleagues of what’s going on is very important to avoid self-bias (it’s difficult to see what others are doing when you, literally, don’t see them). So every day people write up a little status report on what they have been working on and their progress. timeBro is really helpful in this case as well, as it helps you remember a lot of the small but important things that happen throughout the day.
What doubts did you have before trying timeBro?
Kristoffer: I was concerned that it would be just another window tracker that I install and forget, never to look at again. But the insights are actually very useful. The zoom feature of the memory aid is genius.
