“Paymo has allowed us to manage and evaluate our project work: creating and assigning tasks; defining milestones; organizing multiple projects; accurately measuring how much time was spent on projects and on what tasks, and by whom; and generating detailed reports for project reviews and meetings. In addition, Paymo's system of invoices and timesheets helps us generate accurate pay-by-the-hour invoices and calculating employee overtime.” Jack Gillespie
What Web Designers & Developers Love Most About Paymo
Effective Task Management
Paymo allows you to create detailed task lists with quick inline editing, comments and file sharing right at the task level. You can assign tasks, see who is working on what, and which tasks have been completed. Check the full task view for more info.
With Paymo, you can create live reports that show your timesheet data in real time or static reports that capture the project state at a particular moment in time. The client will be happy to be able to see in detail how much time you've spent on what.
Saving Time with Project Templates
If you conduct your projects in a similar manner, you will save a lot of time by saving your task lists as templates. This way, when you create a similar project, you don’t have to start from scratch again. Just build on the template you already have.
Easy Team Collaboration
The Paymo discussion and file sharing areas make it easy for teams to share thoughts and files in the same secure space. This is especially useful for remote teams, where it can be difficult to keep track of who is working on what at any given time.
Accurate Time Tracking
Paymo offers very accurate time tracking & automatic time tracking tools for easy recording. You can precisely measure how much time was spent on what project/task and by whom. There are no more excuses for undercharging or overcharging the client.
Following Key Project Events with Milestones
For more complex long-term projects, it is important to set milestones so that everyone knows when major project stages are due to be completed. Set up alerts to have everything delivered on time and use the dashboard widget for a global overview.
