  is a project management and time accounting package. It lets managers plan projects and tasks, and team members record time spent against a variety of these projects and tasks. A key feature is its speed and ease of use - essential for keeping the users happy about using it, whilst capturing all the information that managers need to monitor and improve their projects.


Who is this product for?

  product is for managers of development groups, consultancy, or professional services that want to improve visibility and reporting about what their teams are doing. This product will appeal to managers who want to have information that is accurate and always up to date; and that is easily available to both the team members and other managers. It integrates very well with Microsoft Project to provide actual time used on project tasks by the team. Any manager currently using monthly Excel or Lotus spreadsheets for their teams will appreciate the benefits of using this type of software.

Why was it developed?

  was developed to meet the needs of consultancy and development teams in NZ. It now uses a SQL Server database for increased performance to handle larger organizations.

Key features and the benefits:
The real benefit of time accounting is that it generates actual figures, which can be included in business decision-making. The obvious one is billing customers,but other common situations would be hiring staff and purchasing/contracting out of development work/services.

When we consider time accounting, the main benefits of TimeVu are: 
Track admin time to see if it is worth hiring a part time/full time assistant. (save manager's time)
Track support call / customer help time to see if it is worth hiring (save developers' time)
 Track costs of internal development - see if it would be worth purchasing a product component or contract development to 3rd party for particular items ( keep team focus on core competency)
When we consider project management, the main benefits of TimeVu are:
To see how long projects or features take.
Tight Integration with Microsoft Project.
For rest of team to know what the developer(s) are up to as they work on the project.
Audit trail for billing this work on to a customer; as a record of what was done, and when.
Comments, Locations, Change request repositories so you never lose important project information.
