Notebooks Work Well for George Lucas — But Not for Time Tracking

Published

Some of the most influential men and women in history owe their greatness to the plain paper notebooks they carried in their pockets.

Don’t believe me? Consider this:

A notebook is where Ludwig van Beethoven first composed his great symphonies, where Pablo Picasso made his preliminary sketches, and where George Lucas recorded his initial ideas for “Star Wars.”

It’s where Thomas Edison documented his many ideas, where Leonardo da Vinci logged his observations, and where J.K. Rowling first conceived of the famous Harry Potter.

But what would have happened if those notebooks were lost or misplaced?

Well, R2D2 probably wouldn’t exist (at least, not by that name), and Harry Potter might have been called “Kevin Entwhistle” instead.

But for Jeff Rainbolt, a foreman at Tower Air, Inc. in Goleta, California, losing his trusty notebook was even more disastrous.

“If I lost that notebook,” he said, “I was done for.”

That’s because losing his notebook meant Jeff would lose all the work he’d done that day or week. It meant he would have to guesstimate how much time he had spent at each job site — and that meant he was under billing his clients by nearly 20 percent.

Long story short, if Jeff lost his notebook, he lost money.

Unfortunately, Jeff did lose his notebook. And it only had to happen once or twice for Jeff to start doubting his system. He started thinking, “There’s gotta be a better way!”

And there is. We call it TSheets, but you might call it “a miracle.”

 

Streamline Payroll, Increase Billable Time With TSheets

With TSheets, employees can track time anytime, anywhere, and from any device. That accurate-to-the-second time data is stored safely and securely in the cloud, so it’s there whenever you need it (and you don’t have to worry about your timesheets getting lost).

“I love that everything is stored in the cloud,” Jeff said. “If for some reason we lose our phones, all the information we need is still right there in TSheets.”

And because TSheets is always accurate, generating accurate invoices is a breeze, which means you always get paid for every second actually worked.

Best of all …
