Jun 10, 2008 (08:06 AM EDT)
MERIDIAN, Idaho, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- TSheets, a leading provider of web-based time tracking software, has added Jott to its impressive list of integrated features, allowing on-the-go workers, for the first time ever, to clock in and out by giving simple voice commands to TSheets via their mobile phones.
Workers call a specified number and say, "Hi TSheets. Clock me in under Job Code 'Customer Meeting.'" They can even take it a step further by attaching notes to their time by saying, for example, "Add notes. I'm meeting with Bob to discuss the bottling project." Once the clock is running, Jott sends a confirmation to the user via email or SMS text message. When the user wants the clock to stop, he or she simply makes another call saying, "clock me out."
Existing TSheets customers' can easily add the new voice-activated feature to existing accounts with an easy-to-use interface in the TSheets user control panel. Likewise, Jott will be adding the TSheets application and making it available to its users via the Jott interface.
CTO at TSheets Brandon Zehm said the most difficult phase of the project was interfacing data from Jott with TSheets. In response, he said, he and his team created, "a killer algorithm that detects key words and matches them to actions and personalized job codes that the user is referring to by utilizing ratios and probabilities."
"The time scientists in the TSheets TLabs have done it again," said Brian Ernesto, CEO of Neoreef. "Who would have thought that something as mundane as tracking time could become so fun and easy?"
The fun factor has long been a staple of the TSheets product offering. In addition to voice-activated time tracking, TSheets allows workers to use the web browser on their cell phones to track time with simple point and click commands. The TSheets interface is clean and user-friendly and, most important to business owners, it reports in real time, helping to reduce overtime and make business decisions based on the way workers are spending their time.
The Jott integration is just one of the exciting system integrations planned by the TSheets scientists in the TLabs.
