Sold as on add-on to PowerPM or stand-alone, TrakDate is a powerful due date monitoring system designed to track multi-step tasks through to completion. Especially useful in tracking the steps in the preparation of tax returns, any project may be assigned an unlimited number of multi-step tasks with associated due dates and extensions.
An unlimited number of multi-step work types may be defined with up to 20 discrete steps. For example, work type TAX might have the following steps: Review, Prepare, Assemble, Sign, Deliver. Each work type may be assigned an unlimited number of tasks with specific due dates and up to three extensions. For example, within the work type TAX, one might set up tasks based on tax forms 1040, 1120, 5500, etc.
An onscreen display of incomplete tasks allows management to pinpoint those items which are falling due and still incomplete. Employees date and initial the completion of each step, thus the status of tasks is easily reviewed and may be modified onscreen by management or the employees working onthe tasks.
The TrakTime Personal Timesheet provides on-screen entry of daily time and expense items as they occur, eliminates redundant data entry, saves administrative time, and helps the professional capture all billable hours. TrakTime operates as a stand-alone system–access to the PowerPM database is unnecessary, which allows increased database speed, greater database security.
Complete portability of the TrakTime timesheet allows time and expense entry wherever you are: at a remote site, on a laptop, or at home. The completed timesheet may be submitted by the timekeeper to PowerPM via the network, email, modem, or diskette as the situation requires.
The timesheet is available in two formats:
Transaction model for Windows Desktops: separate line item for each event
Spreadsheet model (Web based - ASP) for Windows: tabular format
