Product launch: Crono’s cutting-edge software cuts down admin time for businesses
Launched in September 2017, Crono is a Software as a Service (SaaS) product that aims to revolutionise business operations by streamlining administration processes.
Hosted in the cloud, Crono is an easy-to-operate User Interface that automates monotonous tasks such as logging timesheets, generating invoices and allocating team schedules – all managed from one seamless platform.
What makes Crono stand out is its usability. Other time-tracking software can be over-engineered, clunky, fiddly or difficult to navigate. Crono’s beautifully designed UI features clear, easy-to-understand visuals – making it a breeze for just about anyone.
Helping businesses streamline project management
Compatible with PC, Mac and mobile devices, Crono’s customisable dashboard gives the user an overview of all projects, with the ability to click through for detailed information.
Managers can assign team members to projects at the click of a button, set tasks and track their time – drastically reducing the hassle involved in organisation and timesheets. Timesheets can be accepted or rejected from within Crono, sending notifications to employees when amendments need to be made.
Crono creates invoices by automatically calculating costs based on timesheets and the hourly rate set. Professional-looking invoices can be emailed to clients or downloaded as a PDF – with outstanding payments monitored from within the app.
Getting on board with Crono’s free starter package
Crono can save businesses valuable time and money – cutting hours from employee schedules so they can get on with the work that matters while the software handles the tedious jobs.
The lowest tier package offers management of up to two projects with access for two users – completely free. This is great news for small businesses managing one or two projects at a time. And thanks to cloud hosting, the potential for bigger businesses with multiple projects is unlimited.
Designed and built in the UK, Crono’s support and development teams are all UK based, putting customer service high on the agenda.
The innovative tech behind Crono’s simple UI
Lead developer Connor explains: “Building the software using a newer, more niche framework has allowed us to create a product that’s far less over-engineered and ultimately more user-friendly.”
Another clever bit of behind-the-scenes tech is the way in which Crono uses logic to automatically generate invoices based on the information input into timesheets.
Crono is AWS hosted, a cloud hosting solution that provides a fast, reliable and low cost alternative to server hosting. All data hosted on Crono’s cloud platform is encrypted at rest and secured using the SHA-2 SSL protocol – meaning peace of mind for businesses too.
