Our entire project management process used to be a long series of spreadsheets and Word documents. Now, thanks to the analytics enabled by Toggl Track, we have a fully clear workflow for each project.

Challenges

It’s not like their time tracking was a disaster. “Technically, all of our projects were successfully completed by their deadline,” Billie Hyde said. Nevertheless, they could never tell for sure whether their projects were being completed efficiently.

Twinkl didn’t have an official time tracking platform; they had never used one before. Their system involved spreadsheets and Word docs, haphazard and piecemeal efforts with little to no automation. Project-tracking timesheets took too much time to complete, and were easily forgotten about for weeks at a time.

Maybe they could get away with spreadsheets alone as a team of 2 or 3. At 25 people strong though, the spreadsheet system was creating too much confusion. With so much frustration surrounding time management, the Twinkl team had to keep switching their priorities. They started to reflect on how they could improve and streamline. Enter: Toggl Track.

Solution

“Toggl Track has allowed us to accurately calculate the time required for each and every core task,” Hyde said. This, in turn, has allowed Twinkl’s management to design more effective KPIs that reflect the time demands of their current and future projects.

Now, when they meet at the beginning of the week to establish priorities, they can reliably quantify the amount of time to reserve for that week’s objectives. They can account for every team member’s time, and spread tasks fairly throughout the department. No more overworking one person, while someone else sits around bored.
