How does it work?

Users:

First thing to do is creating users (the application is totally free for up to 3 users). Considering every user may have different conditions, it is possible to set variables like workday length, timezone, week start day, etc for every user.

Clients:

It is necessary to define clients (this can be yourself for your own projects) in order to create the projects. This info is also used in the invoices.

Projects > Tasks:

That's the heart of the application, yet very simple to define & use.

Projects can be created by defining the details like: the client, budget hours, price per hour & users that will work in the project. After that, tasks can be created which are the main things that the application tracks the time of.

Tracking the time:

Time can be tracked in 3 ways:

  • web-based pop-up
  • desktop client/widget (Windows, Mac & Linux supported)
  • mobile time tracking using Paymo2Go

Paymo TrackerBy simply start-stopping the tracker, the time worked on the selected tasks are added automatically. The tracker can also work offline if Google Gears is installed.

It is always possible to manually add/edit/delete the time worked on.

Invoicing:

The invoices can be created instantly by using the time that is worked on a project & that projects's hourly rate.

It is also possible to manually add entries that doesn't exist in the timesheets which makes Paymo an independent billing app. as well.

In order to keep record of the invoices, every payment made can be added to the system & the balances of every invoice can be seen with a click.

Reporting & analysis:

The application has a powerful reporting module that makes it possible to generate ready-to-use or custom reports. The data can also be exported as PDF or CSV files for future analysis.

API

For anyone willing to integrate Paymo into any other application, that's pretty easy with a complete API that supports almost every feature of the application.

Conclusion

The best thing about Paymo is the simplicity it offers. On every step, it takes no more than a few seconds to complete a task (add an entry, get a report, etc.).

Another one is the application supporting multi-platform (Win, Mac, Linux) & multilanguage that makes it suitable for teams that are distributed around the world.

Also, it has a free version that works up to 3 users & 3 invoices/month which can be ideal for many freelancers or small businesses.
