Getting employees to submit their timesheets promptly is a constant struggle, but adopting a user-friendly program to track expenses makes it easier. Timesheet and expenses software like BQE CORE gives your team remote access to record their time and expenses from anywhere, sends them automated reminders, and pre-populates timesheets with their tasks.
Beyond equipping employees with software that helps them be proactive about timesheets, your firm can also improve its time and expense reporting by:
- Setting clear policies and guidelines
- Making daily time tracking mandatory
- Letting employees bill you for time and expense entry activity (with CORE, it only takes 1-2 minutes)
- Offering incentives
- Making timesheet completion part of performance reviews
Implementing the best time and expense software for your firm can actually motivate your employees to track their time and submit timesheets on time because it’s a record of how productive they were during that period. They can use their timesheets to show how they contributed to profitability or demonstrate that they need support from other team members to complete tasks more efficiently.
Encouraging team members to use smart timecards adds efficiency to your firm’s time and expense billing processes and provides you with timesheet data that helps you make informed decisions about performance. Read our blog post on How to Get Employees to Submit Timesheets for more tips.
