The Secret to Productive Client Meetings

For those of us who run service-oriented organizations — or even businesses with clients — you know that client communication can make or break your business. If you're easy to work with, clients are much more likely to continue to employ your services. If you're difficult or disorganized, you’ll be dropped like the ball on New Year’s Eve.

Time-Saving Tips for Accurate Time Entry

There are easy ways to enter time and there are easy ways to ensure compliance. ClickTime’s data is only as good as what is entered into the system, so it’s important that people enter their time accurately and in a timely manner.
