"In the past, we never had 'lessons learned' after-the-fact. There was no transparency over effort put in. A project could have been costing the business more than it was making.”

More time for client work.
"Timely has taken the time tracking workload from our consultants and freed their time for more important work.

Before Timely, it took me two hours a week to track my time across all tasks, clients and projects. I had to create another time entry for tracking the time, which was totally inefficient.”
