Accountfully's Favorite Time Keeping Tool: Harvest

Small business owners have limited time and resources, which is why they shouldn’t waste either on cookie-cutter software solutions that don’t react, can’t evolve, and aren’t flexible enough to meet their needs. We are opening up the Accountfully Tool Box to share tools that entrepreneurs can use to streamline their business and improve productivity.

Always feel like you’re underwater? Not quite sure where last week went? Unsure if you sent the final invoice for that project? If so, you’re not alone. We’ve had many frustrated clients come to us with tales of missing hours and forgotten tasks. Fortunately, we’ve turned them on to Harvest, which helps them track time and manage tasks.

What Is Harvest?

Harvest is a web-based time tracking and invoicing application relied on by creative businesses in over 100 countries.  It is a dynamic tool that can serve both business owners and employees. Whether you’re a business owner who needs to track staff’s time and approve timesheets, or a remote employee who needs off-site access, Harvest’s flexibility makes time tracking simple and lightening fast. With Harvest, it’s never been easier to track time anytime, anywhere—on a Mac or Pc, iPhone or Android. It even syncs with many other applications like Basecamp, Trello, Slack, Stripe, Asana, Quickbooks, and Zendesk.

Powerful Insights For Better Project Management

It’s also an incredibly powerful tool. Harvest’s reporting function gets the insights you need to estimate future projects. It helps you stay up-to-date on your business’s progress by tracking company hours, project income, amounts un-invoiced, and project budgets. The best part? It has a refreshingly simple interface, which means that high level reports are easy to read and understand.

Spend less time tracking and more time doing.  Sounds like a solid plan to us.
