A friend of mine is running a consultancy company and she needs a software to manage the people that go to their customers. I've been using Project Management Software before, but this case is slightly different. Basically, the workflow would be:
- Manager assigns a Consultant to a customer site, possibly on a calendar (e.g. John Smith has to go to Mr Customer on 3rd of April from 10AM to 6PM).
- Consultant goes to customer for an X amount of hours. At the end of the day, he/she writes in the software how many hours were spent (and, eventually, doing what).
- Manager generates a monthly report of billable hours and produces invoices to send to customers.
It should be relatively simple to manage, but I wouldn't be able to recommend a specific software for this. Funnily enough, I've been a Consultant for 10 years, but, at the time, we did everything on paper...
Any suggestion is appreciated, thanks.
