Multicultural Leadership Institute: Compliance and Accountability
The Multicultural Leadership Institute (MLI) required a simple, unobtrusive time and expense tracking solution that would allow them to be accountable to grantors and funders.
MLI required a simple, unobtrusive time and expense tracking solution that would allow them to be accountable to grantors and funders. MLI had been tracking their time and expenses through a mix of paper timesheets and Excel workbooks. With increasingly stringent grant requirements and a growth in grant activity, the ad-hoc solutions became more and more disruptive to their day-to-day processes.
"The more active we became, the more we realized how increasingly difficult it was to coordinate and report hours for a few employees and a bevy of consultants--even for a company as small as ours," recalls Tamara L. Petro, Executive Director.
With ClickTime Web Timesheet, MLI was completely set up and started tracking time and expenses within hours. MLI was able to capture data from employees whether they were working from the office or remotely. Even time entries from consultants working throughout the state were being neatly entered and tracked in ClickTime.
Additionally, with features like Mobile Time Entry and remote access, employees and managers were both enjoying the benefits of a hosted web solution.
"As the Executive Director, and the one who has to approve payroll, having the mobile option meant that I was no longer bound to the office (versus the field) on payroll reporting days. With internet and email access, we can report, start the payroll process, and have employees paid on time," said Petro.
