by constructaquote - 3 October 2019


Being a productive business is essential if you’re planning on staying in the market long-term and it’s especially important if you’re a small company or start-up that’s still finding its way through the first few years of trading. To help you and your staff stay productive, we’ve compiled a list of the top five tools to help you track your day-to-day progress.

This handy tool offers users a 14-day free trial and is useful for senior managers wanting to ensure staff are spending their working day productively. This is essentially a time tracking application that has desktop and mobile versions and a chrome app. If you need to make teams accountable for their working hours or simply want to make sure you’re not being distracted from important tasks, Time Doctor lets you set up alerts to keep you on the road to productivity. The software also reminds users to stop tracking their time if they visit a website that may not be work related (like Facebook). And it doesn’t monitor anything on someone’s computer when they’re on a break or when they’re not working, so there’s no need to worry about privacy.
