Super simple time monitoring for on-the-go employees and freelancers

The Challenge

How can we get employees to accurately log their time without disrupting their productivity?

For many industries and companies, accurate monitoring of time is key to efficient billing and effective scoping. We found that current time recording systems don't tackle the inherent problem of accuracy, and the fact that the root of the problem lies with the employees and their inability to effectively recall what they have done, and when. 

We conceived and developed a solution that would slot into our user's daily behavior without causing disruption. The result is a quick and simple app that would nudge the user throughout their day to log what they had just been working on while the memory of it is fresh and can be reported accurately.

See Your Day Progress

By representing the active day as blocks of time or a timeline, we made it easy to assess your progress on projects and tasks in whatever way makes the most sense. As you log time your view builds up resulting in an accurate representation of your day, as it happened.

Customizable Experience

Any activity a user wants to track a project within the TicTok app is customizable in a variety of ways. Users can set their options from the name to the color of each individual project.

When a project is completed, it's simply archived,  keeping the data for reference while removing it from active project choices.

Works with the user

Everybody's work needs are unique, and their working day is different. As a result, we allow the TicTok user the ability to set their own working hours for the app to alert you to log between, as well as how frequently they will be alerted. Additionally, hourly rates to be applied to time logged to generate a projected income.

Calendar

A historical reference of time

With TicTok, we eliminated the need to trawl back through emails or calendars to try and see what you did on a particular day. The recorded activity is always accessible through a calendar allowing users to dig into their activity, and more accurately trackback day-by-day and review where time was spent.

Key Project Highlights

  • User research to identify key working behaviors and patterns of freelancers and remote workers.
  • Developed iOS  and Andriod app versions with react native 
  • Developed a web version of the tracking tool to mimic all functionality of the app.
  • Set foundational technology architecture to allow and facilitate the growth of the platform.
  • Extended functionality to include business side manager tool to consolidate logged time from multiple employees.

The Results

We launched Tictok with no fanfare and no real marketing effort. Regardless, we've managed to still get some love from some very happy users.
