Do You Frequently Struggle with Time Tracking?

When your time tracking runs like a Swiss clock, all hours are transparently recorded and accurately billed, every project manager can provide the client with information on accrued and outstanding hours at any given time, overtime is never a topic of discussion within the agency, and there are no resource shortages at any time, well then... the alarm clock goes off and you wake up from your beautiful dream.

Because in reality, time tracking usually is one of the key issues in agency software:

  • Nobody wants to do it, nobody likes to take care of the administration. It's too tedious, too slow, too inaccurate. Creatives get lost in their projects and literally forget about time. When asked about deadlines, one often only gets a shrug of the shoulders and an "I just work better under pressure."
  • There are customers who constantly interfere in their projects and demand changes that completely throw the schedule off. Overtime is not the exception but rather the rule.
  • Sometimes there are employees who manipulate their working hours. This doesn't even have to happen maliciously, but if breaks are not recorded or working hours are estimated generously, it has an impact on project performance.
  • Of course, you haven't been using Excel sheets for time tracking for a long time. But even software specifically developed for this purpose sometimes lets you down. If the time tracking system isn't working properly, it can lead to chaos and you never know exactly how much time was spent on a project.

The challenges of time tracking in an advertising agency are diverse and can keep an agency owner quite busy.

You have the feeling that time tracking can actually run better and more easily? Your feeling is right! And that's where the agency software LEADING Job comes in!


What Is the Best Type of Time Tracking for My Agency?

Can LEADING Job help you overcome all the daily time tracking challenges and make your workday easier? Whether it's estimating expenses for cost estimates, planning resources, adhering to budgets, recording different hour categories, project- and task-related billing or analysing agency productivity - only with agency software made for the challenges of large advertising agencies will you have everything under control and be able to concentrate on what's important: Your creativity and your clients.

Come and let us show you what LEADING Job can do for time tracking at large advertising agencies!



More Time for What Is Really Important

With LEADING Job you have the possibility to customise your time management to your individual needs. Choose from three different types of time sheets the one that best suits you and the way you work.

  • You are unbeatably fast with 3-click timesheet. 
  • Do you work on a particularly small scale and switch back and forth between projects? Then the stopwatch is the best choice for time tracking.
  • Do you prefer to enter your hours for the whole week in one go? Weekly timesheet is your thing!

Trust, But Verify!

For reliable time tracking, it is necessary to record working hours promptly and not from memory. LEADING Job facilitates this process:

  • After a few days, a reminder is automatically sent for missing entries.
  • Thanks to the stored working time profiles of the employees, only hours that match the individual weekly hours can be recorded.
  • The system also supports the mutual authorisation or approval of recorded working times. This integrated function is particularly appreciated by large agencies, as non-automated approval processes would otherwise be very time-consuming.

The Power of Systematic Resource Planning

More precise cost estimates and more realistic resource planning - LEADING Job can do that, too. The programme stores the times centrally and evaluates them in clear reports that can be called up and analysed by the management at any time. By comparing estimated resources from the planning and bidding phase with the actual resources used, it quickly becomes clear in which areas the cost estimate was too low or too high. Through this learning process, future offers can be calculated more precisely and resource planning can be made more realistic.


Home Office Made Manageable

The working world has changed a lot during the pandemic and many companies continue to rely on home offices. But how do team leaders, project managers or agency heads keep track of the attendance of their employees and plan meetings effectively? The timesheet module of LEADING Job offers a solution. Here, the employees can simply enter their home office days and the management keeps track of who works from home, when and how often.
