How Timeular helps a business owner capture all billable hours

how to maximize billable hours

Stacy Baker is the owner of an administrative professional company.

The challenge: accounting for all of the hours of the day

As a business owner, Stacy needs to ensure that none of her time was going unaccounted for while working from home.

Stacy needed a time tracking solution that would enable her to bill clients accurately and also keep a tally of how she was dividing her time between personal and business hours throughout the day.

The solution: From the hours tracker app to the billing program

All of the tasks Stacy needs to get done in a day, she puts on a list in her Todoist account. In the next step, she prioritizes them.

After that, she structures her day using time blocks on her calendar,  based upon the day’s items and the priorities of her list.

She then tracks her activities during the day including the work she does for her clients, her generic business activities and also any personal time. She uses the Tracker to quickly switch between activities and uses #tags and @mentions to add project numbers and a detailed list of work products/activities to her time entries to make her billing process even smoother.

“It’s important for me to track my time in order to bill accurately, and it’s very helpful to see how much time I devote to actual billable hours each day. It allows me to have a better idea of how productive I’ve been.”

After she has reviewed her billed time in the insights sections, Stacy inputs her hours into her billing software and invoices her clients: “that way I am never behind or miss out on billing properly.”

The result: More focused work, less switching

Before she used Timeular, Stacy was struggling to keep on top of switching between multiple activities and she wasn’t able to track the details of the activities, which made time planning challenging. Thanks to Timeular, she can now track all of her tasks more accurately and, in turn, increase her billable hours.
