Buzz: Journyx – Will it keep you on time?

By | April 12, 2008

Sometimes I feel so busy running a business and a successful online blogging company that I wonder how on earth I’m supposed to do anything… and there are times I simply need to just sit and ponder things. Like how I have so little time to use things like timesheets, diaries or whatnot.

Worse, much of the information that I need to write down just doesn’t fit into conventional boxes, checklists and diary entries. In fact, I loathe much of what passes for ‘productivity products’. The lines frustrate me at times with their generosity, at others with their limitations… So it’s a tough challenge for a product like this – to convince me that it offers anything like the flexibility I might need…

Well, Journyx claims to have found a solution to this problem putting things on the web as a way to manage your Online Time and Expense . As a skeptical user of diaries, journals and weblogs, I am remaining unconvinced… Fortunately, for users who are as disorganized as I am, Journyx is offering its product as a free download for you to try out. I’m always a sucker for these kinds of deals.

While I’m downloading the software right now… I’ll add a little more about this companies product:

Journyx Timesheet is a timesheet and expense management solution for the entire enterprise. Any company that bills for its services, performs project-oriented work, or tracks absences for a professional workforce can benefit from Timesheet. You can easily manage employee timesheets and expenses for project control, customer invoicing, and payroll automation with Timesheet. Journyx Timesheet is the foundation of the Journyx P5 Protocol, your path to Per-person, Per-project Profitability.

Ok. After a few niggles filling out their form, it’s now downloading but slowly!… I guess I’ll have to leave the review till next time…

In our school, I think we could probably use some of the functionality without much alteration, such as timesheets and expense tools. Our expense requirements would be quite simple to manage. The big plus would be to deal with appropriate customer invoicing as currently this is a time intensive and mistake ridden process that challenges even the more detail oriented individual, not to mention some scatterbrains like myself.

Now I’ve got to have a look at the software… more tomorrow.
