That's a quote from one of our customers — and it's something we hear a lot.
Your business runs on time. It's the fuel your team uses to start, create, finish projects for yourselves and your clients.
You've got to make sure every minute counts… and can be counted:
- Does your team have the availability for this new client?
- Which clients are good to you, and which abuse your time?
- Is your sales process too long and costly?
- Are your internal marketing efforts giving a good ROI?
- Is this team member under-utilized?
- Where did all that time go?
- And did you actually bill your client for all the time actually worked?
To answer these questions, you need a perfect handle on your team's time. But you're all so busy. Ironically, tracking your time takes time. Sometimes it takes a lot of time. Your team hates the administrative overhead of logging their time, and so… you suspect (or you know!) that you're mostly getting guesstimates, after the fact.
Those guesstimates lead to bad data, impaired ability to make critical business decisions, and, of course… you can't bill as much, either.
It's not that you're an authoritarian control freak, but you need to know. And it's not that your team is sloppy, but all they really want to do is focus on doing their work.
What if you could both get what you wanted?
“…Freckle is by far the most flexible & easy to use solution we have encountered”
“My team has gone through four time tracking apps (five if you count excel spreadsheets) in the last two and a half years. Freckle is by far the most flexible & easy to use solution we have encountered. The use of hashtags to categorize activity makes it quick and super easy to use, and having desktop and iOS timer syncing definitely helps someone like me who often walks into meetings without setting a timer beforehand at my workstation.”
How much easier would your job be, if time tracking was so fast, & easy, & almost fun, that your team did it with pleasure?
- You wouldn't have to nag your team.
- They wouldn't be distracted (or tired of nagging).
- You'd have good data.
- You could make good decisions… and nip problems in the bud before they get bigger… and!!
- You could bill more!
And, while you're imagining that lovely scenario… What if you could instantly see, no spreadsheet required, what that time meant for your business: work rhythms, availability, utilization, overhead.
What if your time tracking tool bent over backwards to serve you?
“If you find you’re spending more time managing your business than
actually getting work done, check out Freckle.”
We ran a small consulting agency ourselves (total combined experience: 24 years!). And we hated the tools we had to use to run it.
“Freckle cured my aversions against time tracking.”
That's why we designed Freckle Time Tracking from the ground up to help you & your team get every last drop from your daily allotment of 480 business minutes… without stress, without nagging, without wasted seconds.
When you use Freckle to track your time, you get the benefit of using a tool designed to help you get the most of your business, to understand…
- team member utilization
- work rhythms
- budget accuracy
- client and project overhead (unbillable time)
…in addition to all the features you've come to expect.
In Freckle, it literally takes only 10 seconds to create a time entry for a completely new client. You don't need to configure anything.

- Work where you want. Our Mac & iPhone apps help you track time from your menu bar, your phone – anywhere you work. (Mobile web on Android, too!) Start a timer on your desktop and then switch to your laptop, or your iPhone — the timer will follow you, no time lost. And your software developers will love the ability to track time directly from their Beanstalk or Github commit messages.
- Honor business needs. Never round in your head again: Freckle will automatically round up your timers and time entries to the increment you specify. Add expenses or credits to your invoices. Track & analyze your project or client overhead instantly with our unbillable time feature.
- Collaborate with your clients and team. See who's working on what, when, and how often. Generate invoices, and reports at a click from every page. Instantly download all of your reports in CSV, Excel, or PDF. Share reports with your client or boss. No matter what, we fit your workflow and keep everyone up to speed.

“Freckle has taken the hassle out of managing my consultants time reporting."
“Freckle has helped me measure my business goals—and then meet them!

The invoicing feature has saved my life & gets me paid!”
