An alternative to SpringAhead’s manual timers

Feel Helena’s pain? You’re not alone. Almost every time tracking app currently on the market shares SpringAhead’s essential design error: manual timer input.

Constantly starting and stopping timers is an unnatural and inefficient way to track time — particularly if you regularly hop between projects or responsibilities. You only log the activities you remember working on, leading to incomplete timesheets. This subjectivity itself breeds extreme inaccuracy — even if you remember to log your hours every day, studies show that timesheets that rely on manual input are only ever 67% accurate.

In this context, SpringAhead’s colorful UI matters relatively little. Ultimately, a robust time tracking solution should satisfy a very basic purpose: capturing hours as accurately and as easily as possible.

What makes Timely the best SpringAhead alternative?

Offering automatic time tacking and AI-powered timesheets, Timely is quite a step up from SpringAhead’s basic manual reporting. Instead of making you consciously track time on every task and plug in notes, Timely captures everything you work on down to the second! Here are a few reasons why SpringAhead users switch to Timely.

Bill accurately for all work

Timely automatically captures the time you spend on every piece of work in the background for you. No guesstimates or overlooked billable hours from struggling to remember what you worked on. By producing a completely accurate timeline of every day automatically, Timely ensures every billable detail actually makes it to your timesheet.

Minimize time tracking overhead

Instead of starting and stopping timers as you move between tasks, Timely lets you stay 100% focused on your work. In addition to automating daily time tracking, it also minimizes timesheet admin by drafting time entries for you. Free more time for the work that matters!

Manage and report effortlessly

Report effortlessly with confidence

Timely makes it easy to translate masses of granular time data into accessible, professional reports for clients and stakeholders. Its real-time dashboards keep you on top of critical business information, including project budget spend, billable percentage, overtime and employee capacity.

Protect team trust

Offering user-level privacy by design, Timely is a tracking tool that teams can actually trust. Every employee gets their own private work timeline and they control what information goes public. We will never support creepy surveillance functionality — your private work data is for your eyes only.

Work anywhere

Timely is ready for wherever work takes you. With apps available on Mac, Windows, iOS and Android in addition to the web, you can move seamlessly between your laptop, phone and tablet. Our secure GPS location app also lets you automatically track the time you spend at different locations from your mobile — ideal for capturing travel, meetings, site visits and events, and logging time on the go.
