Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions about our eTimeSaver timesheet scanning and processing system. Hopefully these will answer most of your questions but if you have any more complex questions or require further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Can you advise on timesheet design?

We would typically re-design your timesheet for you, mirroring your existing familiar style and layout. It is always recommended that you make the timesheet attractive and as easy as possible to complete. Use of your company logos, vibrant colours and simple tick boxes make your forms as approachable as possible with constrained print boxes used to capture handwriting. The aim is to minimise free text fields to make the data easier to read. Clear layout and directions along with good layout will reduce the likelihood of errors and extra administration later on.

Will we need to change our existing timesheets to work with eTimeSaver?

Our system works best with timesheets designed for automated data capture. Features such as corner stones are used to help the system orientate the page properly. A barcode or form number is used so that the system can identify the form type and fields such as constrained print boxes aid swift recognition.

However, eTimeSaver does include an existing form templating system, to allow your existing timesheets to be captured. This is useful if the timesheet is supplied by a client or you already have a large investment in pre-printed stationery that cannot be changed, for example.
