From the very beginning of TimeControl’s design, we knew we needed a timesheet system that would pass the stringent controls the Finance department need for processes like Payroll and Invoicing as well as the activity-based-costing and progress tracking requirements of project management. This is what has TimeControl be simultaneously a highly flexible system and a highly auditable system.
The design and functionality that is used to make TimeControl auditable is so woven into the fabric of the product that we often don’t think to highlight it until someone asks about some specific aspect. So, we’ve never made a document outlining how TimeControl is auditable.
In our new white paper “TimeControl Auditability What do we mean when we say auditable” we discuss what we mean when we say TimeControl is auditable. You’ll find it in the TimeControl Resources WhitePapers area of our TimeControl website.
With the advent of TimeControl version 6.9, Administrators can now configure TimeControl to have timesheets other than a 7 day week. Of course exports from TimeControl could already be of different intervals. It has been common for years to have a weekly integration with the project management system but a bi-weekly link to payroll. Timesheets could now be 14 days long (bi-weekly) or bi-monthly or monthly or quarterly or custom length. But with all that flexibility comes some decision making that has to be done. How long should the timesheet ideally be? We discuss the decision and give some guidance on how to select wisely for your own organization in the white paper “Choosing the Ideal Timesheet Length”. It’s on the TimeControl website at: www.timecontrol.com/pdf/whitepapers/tc6_choosingtimesheetlength.pdf.
