Time & Resource Management (Cost Oversight) - February 16th 11:00AM ET

Often, time management is seen as “big brother” to individual contributors. However, the information gathered from time entry provides valuable cost oversight to an organization. Not only can accurate time capture help to ensure accurate cost tracking, but it can assist in capitalizing work and creating innovation tax credits to help an organization’s bottom line. This session will show company’s how to accurately capture timesheets and use this information from a financial perspective.
