Harvest and 14 Dayz – Web Based Time Trackers

    June 28, 2006

I’ve been using Harvest the last several weeks to keep better track of my time.

Harvest is a web based time tracker – no software installation is necessary and it is available from any computer that has an Internet connection.

This week, I came across 14 Dayz via Emily Chang’s eHub (read her interview with 14 Dayz). 14 Dayz is another online time tracking tool.

Bringing this sort of functionality as a hosted, maintained service at a reasonable pricing point is a winner in my book. I did a brief comparison of Harvest and 14 Dayz for my weekly column (read: blog) at the Duct Tape Marketing Channel:
In my experience, time tracking can be a real pain. Typically, time tracking “software” (which often amounts to a spreadsheet) is developed and maintained in-house. The maintenance side of things can be a job in and of itself. But it usually falls under one of the many projects the “tech guys” are managing, meaning that it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. That’s especially true for smaller businesses.
