7 benefits of time tracking

There are several benefits of time tracking. Here are just 7 of them:

1. Identify non-essential activities

Time is a limited resource. If you don’t track it, there’s a high probability that you have no clue about how much time is wasted on non-essential activities. You might even be shocked when you find the truth.

2. Stay aligned with your goals

When you track how you spend your time, you’ll be able to see if you’re on the right track to accomplishing your goals.

3. Define and clarify your goals

Many people are living without having defined clear goals. Tracking your time and taking a closer look at how you spend it might help you, or even “force” you, clarify and define your goals.

How can project management tools benefit small businesses?

When you set out to start your own business, you were buzzing with excitement at all the things you were going to achieve. Then, hopefully, you realized that there is no ‘I’ in ‘team’, and that you have to work closely with your colleagues in order to deliver top results. With each brand new project that you enlist, your workload expands, and the quality of your outcomes depends on the extent of your collaborative capabilities… and, on the range of your organizing skills.

What is project management to you?

Paymo rebranding


In 2007, while running our web design agency Light Design Studio we’ve constantly had trouble keeping the company profitable. We’ve soon learned that many of our problems came from the lack of time management that usually meant that we were under billing our time. We took matters into our own hands and created a simple online app for time tracking. After using it successfully in our business for a year we’ve decided to make it public and Paymo was born. The premise was simple, Paymo – wise tracking pays more.

The Mission

Over the years Paymo became a leading time tracking app that kept growing in functionality and user base. In the past years the time tracking and invoicing space has undergone significant transformation and Paymo changed too. The whole team realized that Paymo has outgrown our original mission and brand since we started working on the first Paymo 3 prototypes.

We asked ourselves an apparently simple question – What is our mission? After lots of long talks and endless brainstorming sessions the answer became quite clear. Paymo’s new mission is to move your projects forward. A bold statement and a big problem for us to tackle. We believe that our roots in time tracking are still vital to accomplishing this mission along with the introduction of new functionality.


Meet the new Paymo

We felt that the old logo was pretty decent but fairly boring, it didn’t do anything visually to underline our current mission and direction. The new identity provides a nice contrast in attitude by incorporating the checkmark icon into the type, underpinning the concept of getting things done and moving forward. Of course, the new identity is much more then symbols and slogans. We’ve redesigned the entire Paymo experience from the ground up to offer you a sleak new UI and better workflows while staying true to our time tracking roots. I hope you’ll all like our new identity!

The new Paymo website is up!

As some of you might have noticed, with the upcoming Paymo 3 launch we will be transitioning over to the domain saying farewell to the old faithful 🙂

This is one of the many changes that are taking place right now and we’re very excited about our upcoming launch. We’ve went through a re-branding process – you can see the new logo up already, but more on that in a separate post.

You’ll notice we’ve adopted a different style more in line with the new Paymo 3 UI, re-coded it from the ground up to offer a great responsive experience on all kinds of devices.

A few of our goals with the new website were to make it faster, more informative while keeping it short to allow you to skim through it with ease. If you have any feedback on the new site let us know.
