5 Time Tracking Tools When Your Team Works Remote


At Forward Digital, our entire team works remotely. From Las Vegas, all the way to Virginia, we have employees working all over the country. To be honest, remote work works well for our team. Because our #1 priority is to hire hardworking, self-disciplined, go-getters, we never have to worry about team members slacking off on projects or missing deadlines.

While we don’t have to worry about our team, we do have a pretty strict rule in place that states that every single person on the team (including our President!) must track their time efficiently. We don’t ask our team members to track their time to keep tabs on them - we ask them to track their time because it allows for the team to see how their day is spent. For project management purposes, it allows for us to bill our clients based on the hours we devote to each client.

Because we feel that tracking time is crucial to a business's development, we’re providing you with 5 of our favorite time tracking tools. Check them out!
