A SERIES in the quest to know more about the offline world
Part 2 in a 4-Part Interview with Matt Rissell
Yesterday, I started a conversation with Matt Rissell, CEO of TSheets to find out more about his business that serves folks who work offline, mobile, and on the web. When we ended Matt and I exchanged two questions.
Matt said: Would you be interested in knowing how TSheets can track time from a cell phone?
I answered: Sure, how do you do it and why would I want to?
Liz, fasten your seatbelt and keep arms and legs inside at all times and prepare yourself, because Iâ€™m about to change your life. The how: we are the first company in history to create a voice activated time tracking software. For example, you can simply dial a phone number and say, â€œHi TSheets, clock me under job code â€œBridge Projectâ€ and add notes â€“ Iâ€™m meeting with the owner to discuss design plans.â€ At that moment, you are â€œclocked inâ€ under a job code and notes have been attached to that timesheet. You can also clock in/out from the iPhone Web app., or regular mobile Web app. too.
The â€œwhyâ€ is blatantly sexy! You see, tracking time isnâ€™t sexy, that is, until you can turn your time into money. Now, Attorneys, Freelance Consultants, Web Designers, Realtors etcâ€¦ can accurately track the time that they invest into clients and projects. And now they donâ€™t have to try and remember what they did or talked about, as it can all be captured right there on their timesheet.
Hmmm. I like turning time into money. Most folks do.
Thanks, Matt! More next week about mobile time.
What do YOU think. Would track your time on your cell phone?
