Scenario. You need to bill the client, but you’re not sure how many hours you spent on the case. Your day was busy – you switched between several applications, websites, and even took a phone call. Who can keep track of all of that?

Resolution. RescueTime is a service that tracks what applications you have open on all of your devices. Knowledge is power and you get do a lot with this information. But, for our purposes, what’s important is it lets you bill and justify your time accurately.

Additional information. RescueTime is fairly quick to get setup for simple tasks, like reviewing billable hours. If you’re looking to use some of its other features, like goal setting or productivity reports for a team, it can take some effort.
