Reimagine employee time tracking with AI-powered time tracking, built into Sage Intacct. Get accurate, real-time insights to profitably manage your service business.
Step 1: Sync Your Data Sources
You can sync different data sources that help give the time assistant an understanding of what you worked on during your day. The data sources are your calendar, email, and computer activity. You choose which sources are used.
Step 2: Intelligent Time Privately Processes Your Data
Once you’ve successfully synced your data sources, just work as usual. Time assistant gets to work while you work, processing your activity and proposing entries for your timesheet. The proposed entries include the amount of time spent on the activity and associated dimensions, such as clients and projects.
Step 3: Review and Submit Your Timesheet
Whenever you’re ready to submit your time, simply review the proposed entries to verify they’re correct, allocate any remaining time where dimensions aren’t suggested, and submit. You have the final say as to what you submit, but we make getting there easy, without letting time slip through the cracks.
