Focus your time on value-added tasks
Users have to spend time submitting timesheets and Project and Resource Managers have to spend time administering them. Timesheet automation minimizes that time so teams can spend more time on value-added tasks.
Time and effort tracking is a prerequisite for tracking project cost which is a critical metric to evaluate project success. Data about the time and effort required to execute various project types is important for allocating and managing resources; justifying projects, hiring decisions, and billing rates; and assessing project risk.
Improve Project Planning
Accurate time and effort tracking improves project planning, resource estimation, budgeting, and helps you get a realistic idea of when projects will be completed. Proposals and plans are based on a data- and experience-driven processes that allow project planners to anticipate when resources are unavailable.

What our clients say about time management with Sciforma
Enhancing Project Management Agility and Reliability
Aligning Engineering Expertise and Management Expectations
Managing Projects Faster and More Efficiently
“The IT department’s activity has increased threefold since we adopted Sciforma in 2012. The tool has really helped us manage that rapid growth, without complicating our internal process.”
“By making Sciforma the standard for time tracking across all projects, accountability went up and communication was improved. It was a real eye-opener for us. Now we really know who’s working on what, so we can really drill down to the details.”
“Without Sciforma there would be a lot more micromanaging and constant face-to-face reminders of tasks and due dates.”
