Timesheet Overview

Computapole's Timesheet is a completely automated timesheet application. Our visual interface is intuitive so that your foremen and managers can focus on what they are entering rather than how to enter it. We start with the latest version of our Timesheet mobile program and from there, customize the entire application to suit your needs.

Timesheet's interface allows for entering timesheets that span the period of time you need. Data for different crews is stored universally across all timesheets eliminating duplicate data entries. Crew employee and equipment lists are universal so when you create a new timesheet and select a crew, the employee and equipment lists carry over. Cross-timesheet validation eliminates the problem of duplicate timesheets. We know what tasks are common to timesheet applications so we setup those tasks so they can be completed as easily and effortlessly as possible.

Your foremen and managers will never miss a beat thanks to Timesheet's full field validation. Timesheets cannot be saved or updated if any of the fields are invalid. Our production routines utilize GPS readings to help users better manage and keep track of their production efforts. At the tap of a button the locations of nearby structures and facilities are mapped in relation to your current position.

Computapole software provides disaster recovery from most any situation. Programs and data are stored on non-volatile memory with automatic daily backups and automated recovery procedures. Our mobile applications can be re-installed right from the memory card if required, eliminating any down time in the field.

Our Timesheet mobile application can be used as a stand-alone application or in conjunction with any of our other inspection modules. The PC program will handle all the data transmission, program updates to the device, and report generation. Our PC-side program can even handle inserting the data into a database thousands of miles away if needed. If needed our PC-side program can support generating new timesheet entries directly. We will customize our Timesheet application to meet and exceed your expectations.

PC-Side Application

Our Timesheet can be used as a stand-alone mobile application or along with our PC-side Timesheet application. The PC program will handle all the data transmission, program updates to the device, and report generation. Our PC-side program can even handle inserting the data into a database thousands of miles away.

Our Timesheet PC application is loaded with features that make your job easier. Take our Edit feature; using this you can connect to your central database and create new timesheets or edit existing ones. The layout is simple so it's easy to use and little perks like Windows Hot Keys and logical tabbing make entering data very fast. Need to enter the week ending date? Don't bother looking up a day on your desk calendar, instead choose the day from our mini-calendar that pops up in the program when needed. The edit feature takes record editing a step further by including a full search criteria selection. Enter more fields to narrow down the search, or enter only a couple of fields for a broad search. Our search and data load algorithms have been optimized to give you data as fast as your database server can send it back. It easy to make the changes to a record because our data grid has been extended to allow editing of the record directly on the grid itself. Predefined field values even have a pull down list that can be selected while inside the grid.

We will custom design your Timesheet reports. We can make them look like existing reports you already use, or provide a new look and feel. With the PC Timesheet program all of your reports are just a few clicks today. No need to write your own queries to get data from your database, the PC Timesheet program lets you select reporting criteria from our simple graphical interface. Need to sort by timesheets for a certain crew between January and March of last year? Looking for timesheets that include production work on a specific distribution line? A couple clicks and you will have all of your reports onscreen from which you can generate PDF or Excel documents, or simply press print for a hardcopy.

Installing and upgrading your PC-side application is as simple as clicking the installation file on your desktop. Using our PC-side software along with the mobile application makes updating your Timesheet mobile application with new preload, program version, and database lookup tables as simple as connecting the device to your PC and clicking a button.
