    Before Intervals, tracking our time and tasks was far from easy or efficient. We started out tracking time in a spreadsheet, and eventually moved into a task tracking program that was so busted, not even MacGyver could have fixed it. In the hopes of abandoning old ties and starting fresh, we tried out program after program, only to find out each one did only one thing. And how effective it was at doing that one thing was, and is, debatable.

    Rather than string along several programs — and trying to aggregate the data from each one using a strand of APIs — we decided to build Intervals as a comprehensive solution. We know we are not the only ones who have struggled with the fragmented solutions available online. Our hope is that your small business will identify with our struggles and find your problems answered using Intervals.

    It IS nice to have all the info you need in one place. We started out using paper time sheets entered into Quick Books to track employee time, and an unbelievably complex database to track projects. We had one employee solely devoted to keeping those things in order. Eventually we set up with an online project management program (not Intervals) which wasn't bad but wasn't perfect. Then, our company took over another small company who was using a different management program. We went around and around about who should give up their program and join the other's program, but it wasn't easily resolved because each program was - as jreeve said - better at certain things than others.

    So we started looking for something that was more well rounded, and found Intervals. So far, it is a much better one-stop system than either of our previous programs, though I can't wait to see how the Quickbooks download will work, and would love to have some of the resource projection options that are being discussed. Thanks for the good work!
