CreativeWorx upgrades TimeTracker to Automatically Generate Timesheets for Professionals Who Use Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Exchange & Google Calendars


New York, NY (PRWEB) October 07, 2014

CreativeWorx, the global leader in automated time capture solutions for ad agencies and service organizations, has released a significant upgrade to its TimeTracker and TimeTracker Teams platform. An add-on for existing timesheet and financial ERP systems, TimeTracker privately generates accurate timesheet data that improves the ROI of existing systems while also saving time for employees and increasing company profitability.

Creative professionals and their peers will never struggle with timesheets again, said CreativeWorx CEO Mark Hirsch. TimeTracker is the holy grail for service professionals, especially within creative organizations such as advertising agencies. TimeTracker Teams helps organizations be more profitable with considerably less effort. Its a game-changer for the advertising community.

TimeTracker automatically captures how time is spent and assigns correct billing codes so that timesheets are generated in real-time. The group version TimeTracker Teams provides any-size organization with real-time Project data, so they can understand client & job level profitability as well as actual versus estimated hours.

As Adobe MAX 2014 kicked off today in Los Angeles, California, CreativeWorx announced the immediate release of the latest version of TimeTracker. Besides being uniquely integrated with the Adobe Creative Cloud, TimeTracker supports the worlds most popular applications (including Microsoft Office, Apple Keynote, Microsoft Outlook Exchange & Google Calendars and more) ensuring that TimeTracker addresses the needs of everyone within an organization, including Account, Operations, Finance and Creative teams.

Since TimeTracker has no Start and Stop buttons, employees focus on billable work instead of timesheets. This focus increases productivity, the quality of their work, and their job satisfaction. Furthermore, because the data is both accurate and timely, Finance & Operations teams receive real-time insights that increase revenue and profitability.

TimeTracker is available for large enterprises, small & medium size organizations, and individuals. The CreativeWorx website offers free trial versions and the free TimeTracker extension for the Adobe Creative Cloud.

Since executives gasp for accurate data to run their organization more effectively, its inconceivable that they would not run a free trial of TimeTracker. Similarly, freelancers have so much to gain from TimeTracker.

TimeTracker is used in over 100 countries by individual freelancers and organizations of every-sized, including multinational advertising agencies. TimeTracker is an open platform and is designed to share data with financial platforms such as SAP, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, MediaOcean. Integration is simple and the benefits are incredible. For more information, visit the CreativeWorx website.

NEF Cyberlearning Adopt-A-School Initiative Experiences Positive Results with Students Improving in Core Areas

(PRWEB) November 26, 2013

The National Education Foundation has found through its philanthropic work in the US and abroad that Public-Private partnerships present a WIN-WIN scenario. As the national non-profit leader in bridging the academic and job skills divide, NEF has launched an innovative Public-Private partnership program in its Adopt- A-School Initiative. The program has seen positive results as students improve a letter grade in an average of 24 learning hours, according to SUNY’s data results.

This national initiative is a win-win-win program for businesses, schools and students throughout the US. NEF Chairman, Dr. Appu Kuttan states, America is ranked 25th out of 35 countries in math and science. To compete in the global economy, our students need better STEM skills. Our initiative is aimed at preparing our students better for college and STEM-related jobs.

The Adopt-A-School initiative is truly a win-win-win partnership. Businesses save 80% of training costs, and receive enormous CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) credits, a plaque in the school and PR. Schools get world-class STEM+ academies, and the students receive world-class individualized STEM + education, capable of advancing a student in a subject like math in 20-30 learning hours.

NEF encourages businesses to become partners with this innovative Initiative. By bridging education and business, the Adopt-A-School provides an opportunity for Businesses to access employee training while sponsoring STEM education for students. This public-private partnership provides schools world-class STEM+ Academies at no cost to the schools (see http://blog.cyberlearning.org/). The program has been lauded by the US Congress and the US Department of Education as an innovative approach to bridging the 21st century academic and job skills gaps.

NEF’s (http://www.cyberlearning.org) overriding objective is to set up world-class K-12 CyberLearning academies in the nations schools, especially the disadvantaged. These academies provide 21st century skills for disadvantaged students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), as well as English, Social Studies, SAT/ACT, Digital Literacy, IT, Business and Management. To reach 1 million students by 2020 is the National Education Foundations primary goal.

NEF provides top-quality training in IT, business and management to businesses with an 80% grant, and utilizes the 20% fee ($ 190 per employee) paid by businesses to set up a world-class STEM+ academy for students and a free professional academy for parents in a school chosen by a business.

This national initiative is truly a win-win-win partnership. Businesses save 80% of training costs, and receive enormous CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) credits, a plaque in the school and PR. Schools get world-class STEM+ academies, and the students receive world-class individualized STEM + education, capable of advancing a student in a subject like math in 20-30 learning hours.
