The Problem

Deaton Lysaght were old users of Tempus Pro (the former name of Coretime) but had only begun time tracking more recently. They stopped using Tempus Pro during the recession due to cutting back on costs. When returning to the provider for Tempus Pro it came with increased expensive annual costs. They were struggling with lack of reporting and the restrictions in invoicing possibilities in the other versions of the system. This coupled with inconsistent levels of support from other suppliers and increasing annual fees meant they reverted to manual methods. This never stood up to an adequate integrated time management system like Coretime.

Once they began time tracking against projects, they realised the need in having a system in place.

A quick online search using Tempus Pro as a starting point and they found Coretime.

The Solution

Elisabeth Churchard, Director of Deaton Lysaght says that purchasing Coretime ‘was a very easy decision and made sense economically’.

‘We bought eight licences to begin with but the investment is outweighed by the advantages in terms of the analysis of profit to our organisation’.

‘We were looking for a system that was easy to use and give us full scope for comprehensive project reporting. Coretime provides us with this functionality and more. We now have increased control of timekeeping amongst employees, not spending too much time on projects and saving admin time when it comes to invoicing. It has also been very beneficial having an audit trail of time spent on projects to confirm time spent on them from both a client query and reporting point of view’.

Coretime is used by a broad range of Architects across the UK, Ireland and further afield. From small practises to organisations that have hundreds of users, Coretime has a proven track record of helping Architects bring higher levels of efficiency to their business.

The Outcome

‘Overall’ Elisabeth concludes Coretime is simply the easiest, yet the most economically advantageous programme that does so much more than just time management. The overall impact of the system has been incredibly advantageous to the management of the company, improving both productivity and efficiency. Key benefits include increased cost control, economic time management, effective cost reporting and financial control of specific projects’.

As well as being easy and intuitive to use, Coretime is also highly flexible. Some comparable systems are incredibly rigid, forcing multiple steps to be undertaken to accomplish relatively simple tasks. Coretime isn’t like this; making it the ideal tool to help you manage multiple projects that require multiple resources easily and efficiently.

So, if you’re looking to improve efficiency with software that is quick and easy to use and integrates with your Accounts system – Coretime could be the ideal tried and trusted solution you’re looking for.
