Insight On Business the News Hour

Keeping Track of Time with TimeSolv and Scott Clasen

There is a reason some companies thrive and others are happy just to survive. Our advertising agency keeps track of the time we spend on behalf of our clients. It's how we get paid. It's much the same as lawyers, CPA firms or freelance professions. This spring our computers crashed and our time keeping system went with them. Sure we had it backed up but when we called the company to inquire about replacing our software we were told we had to buy new...and at a crazy price. We searched for a solution and found TimeSolv. After using the product for four months we called Scott Clasen and asked if he would be kind enough to join us on the Business News Hour. Why? We think you should know about how some companies...thrive.

From product demos to consumer interaction it's a neat job and a career she says gives her great flexability and income. Have a listen.
