We finally did it. After three months of coding we are proud to announce that MrTickTock 1.0-Beta has been released (one week ago) and is ready to track your time at mrticktock.com. Although it is in beta condition we consider it a stable and production ready system and we use it to track our internal time. Therefore you may ask why we released it as a beta version. There are two reasons:
* we still want to improve set of stuff and make MrTickTock even more user friendly and awesome,
* we would love people use it, test it and share their ideas on what we should change before 1.0-Final release.
We observed lack of simple, decent and affordable employee time tracking solutions. Most of them require user to download piece of software and install it locally which is not the way small and agile company wants to go (not to mention startups). The existing online solutions are either expensive or have really poor UX and all of them lack of the key feature: vacation tracking :)
What is MrTickTock?
MrTickTock is designed to be simple, fast and secure online solution to track employee time in an efficient way. It is completely free. You don't have to download, install or configure anything. Just sing up in less then 20 seconds and start tracking your time.
We may introduce affordable paid plans for bigger groups and companies some day in the future but don't worry. It will be still free for small companies, individuals and freelancers. Paid accounts will also stay free for already signed users for at least one year.
We know that there are number of people and companies still using Excel as a substitute for dedicated time tracking software. We even know big companies (thousands of employees) using Excel to track vacation time. Isn't it ridiculous? This is why we work so hard to improve MrTickTock UX and add extra features to make their life easier. Here is what we want to release soon:
* save/report time with ajax (no more save button and lost entries),
* new look & feel for customer/project/task structure,
* mobile view,
* vacation tracking,
* IM time tracking,
* improved reports,
* remote SCRUM stand-ups.
If you read this blog post it probably means that you are looking for a decent web based time tracker. Therefore you should give MrTickTock a try at mrticktock.com. The next release in January will bring new prime quality - you will love it.
