Or, how much time was spent in preparing proposals or out-of-office tasks, related to customer based transactions. As a company we will be able to set up demographics in specifying whether these job hours spent, were billable or non-billable hours; against our clientele. In looking at any chosen time ticket, management will be able to see the activity being performed and for what customer.
