Time Tracking Application.

Partnering with ESI, MaybeForYou defined the product strategy for a web-based and mobile time tracking application, which has resulted in a six-figure return.

ESI Enterprise Time Tracking Application

The Challenge

Engineering Systems, Inc. (ESI) is a world leader with over 25 years of experience in the engineering and scientific investigation field. MaybeForYou is proud to have developed a long-lasting partnership to improve both their internal operations and external marketing efforts.

Our relationship started when ESI hired us to build a custom application to track and report on the time spent by engineers and consultants. While functional, their old solution lacked many crucial features -- mainly the ability to track time via mobile devices.

To meet their business needs, the new application required offline support and needed to be accessible on multiple devices. ESI also wanted the ability to send alerts and reminders to employees and to allow managers to audit time before it was approved.

The application also had to integrate with the company’s legacy MAS90 accounting system.

The Process

With all of these requirements in mind, MaybeForYou started the discovery process by interviewing ESI executives and employees about their needs, wants, and expectations for a time tracking application.

By gaining a clear picture into how employees tracked their hours and submitted their timesheet, we were able to define the application’s design and technical architecture.

As the project progressed, we started to pay closer attention to the specifics of the user experience. By setting up interactive prototypes, we were able to test functionality and gather feedback before entering the development process.

During the application’s beta period, we conducted a series of follow-up interviews to gather additional feedback about how we could continue to improve the app in future versions.

The Results

The result is a custom-built application that meets all the time-tracking needs of ESI's employees and the organization.

The application helps capture time worked on a project quickly and accurately, and with tremendous results. ESI estimates that the new system has helped capture over six figures in previously lost revenue due to improved time entry.

Over the years ESI has developed a partnership with MaybeForYou that has touched a wide range of key initiatives. MaybeForYou’s purposeful approach, in terms of surveying the needs and objectives of various stakeholders and establishing a deep understanding of the challenges faced by our organization, has been a central theme to our success.
