Quick setup

No minimum term

Change your licences any time

With the employee time tracking, you keep time accounts and ensure that working time laws are complied with.

With the project time tracking, you monitor project budgets and ensure that all hours are also billed.

With the absence management you ensure transparency in absences and manage vacation accounts and team calendars. You can flexibly define which modules you want any time.



Effortless integration

Accurate, real-time reports

Resilient processes

Time tracking is an important issue not only in the judgment of the European Court. Many companies require an efficient time tracking even today, so that their processes run smoothly. Time recording with paper or Excel does not meet these requirements. With PlainStaff you can use this potential to your advantage.

Employee Time Tracking

With the Employee Time Tracking module, employees can record their working hours conveniently and efficiently from their PC or smartphone in less than 30 seconds. The time recording ensures that the statutory working hours are not exceeded and that mandatory breaks are observed. With the time accounts, the employees as well as the management and the works council always have an overview of possible overtime, vacation and sick days. Permissions control that everyone only sees what corresponds to their role.

Project Time Tracking

With the Project Time Tracking module, services can be assigned to tasks in projects. The employees, the project manager and the management keep an eye on the project budget at all times. The time recording monitors the billing status of the booked hours and reminds the project manager if hours have not yet been billed. With one click, professional and consistent time sheets can be generated for submission to the customer. In combination with the Employee Time Tracking module, productivity reporting is also possible.
