Feedback from our users
" I just started using Time Doctor and am loving it. I heard about it through a review on A Real Change TV. I've tried a lot of time management programs, but this one is very easy and usable. Plus, the reminders to get back to work that pop up when I drift over to Facebook are super-effective. I'm actually getting more done. "
Madeleine Eno, Sandy, OR, USA
" After working as Claim Manager for an insurance company for 12 years, I decided to retire and start working on my own. I have several projects I am working on and this program helps me to control how much time I am dedicating to each of them. I am also tracking the time checking e-mails and Facebook postings. I am recommending it to my friends. Thank you!! "
Grillys Cleveland, Edmond USA
" I like it a lot. About to add two more users. Favorite functionality is the daily team update."

"I would be completely screwed without Time Doctor."
Luke Avedon - Irvine, United States
"Managing remote workers is a big problem for my business. The uncertainty that comes with not knowing if your employees are actually working can be great. Since my companies started using TimeDoctor, our productivity has gone up, and my stress has gone down. The biggest surprise is that my team actually loves the software. Great product for managing remote employees. Thank you."
Brian Greenberg Brianjgreenberg.com, Phoenix, Arizona
"I have several workers around the globe and I needed to make sure that I am paying for the actual work done, because if person lives on the other side of the globe and works from home it is hard to know if they are working or browsing Facebook, watching videos on YouTube or taking care of their own business while you paying them hourly. I needed a tool that would make sure that everybody gets paid for the actual work done and not for screwing around and Time Doctor is perfect solution for that."
Dmitry Tatarinov Ridethefortune.com, Washington DC
"I love it! If it isn't simple and easy to use, then it won't work for me. I also love the little questions/reminders that pop up to ask if I'm still working on the task I had chosen. It records my time and keeps my accountable at the same time. I'm a full time freelance writer and I need both of those. I wanted to be able to analyze my time spent on different aspects of my work and your application is letting me do that with the reports."
Kathleen Krueger KMKrueger.net, Brainerd, MN
"The screenshots, task pre-setting, and weekly activity summaries of Time Doctor provide so much transparency, that it reduces reporting overhead costs and quickly empowers new team members. This allows Go Moment to focus on providing inspirational experiences and insane adventures, not micro-management."
SJ Hosin GoMoment.com, Santa Monica, CA
"Super fan here already to be honest. In fact you have just saved us a project, as we were just on the cusp of actually building a software like this."
Nicole Herstik Whistler ArticleTeller.com, Canada
"It's been great to keep me focused. I was looking at it to see if it would be good for my virtual assistant but it has been great for me personally."
Cindy Tonkin CindyTonkin.com, Sydney Australia
"I have been using TimeDoctor for 6 months now and I freaking love it! I moved from oDesk and never turned back! I have a large team and TimeDoctor allows my manager to check their work consistently but better yet it gives me the piece of mind to know the information it shares we with. It is exactly on point and the integration to Basecamp sealed the deal! If you're an outsourcing company its the BEST solution out there and your more then welcome to reach out to speak to me directly! You contact the TimeDoctor and request a quick call with me and I will spend a few minutes with you giving you a direct testimonials and update to how I'm using it. That's how confident I am in this product and as someone with a large team to manager remotely I understand your concerns. I live it too!"
David Moceri DavidMoceri.com, Irvine CA
"TimeDoctor is working great. I'm really enjoying it in my small web agency (we are a team of 6 people using it). I've tried different options Paymo, Chrometa, TaskCoach and others that I don't even remember the name and TimeDoctor seems to be the best."
Adriano Teles InkMustache.com, Brazil
"I love using Time Doctor.. It's not so much that I am not a driven or hard task-oriented worker, but I get distracted. This is exactly what this is for. I work in sales for a construction management software and I have doubled my output with your helpful app.
Thank you.. My whole team is using this now and I can manage/measure their work output very easily now. We are all benefitting greatly."
BidMail.com, Tustin, CA
"I really love the software. I think it's the most useful and effective software that we will be using in our organization especially in tracking the working hours of our staff. The snapshot feature is epic. Time doctor also saves all of us a lot of time in generating an automated report at the end of the day. Love pretty much all of the features. I don't see, however, the project feature being useful. For effective time and tasks tracking, Time Doctor wins!"
Jose Darrel Bella Siam-Legal.com, Thailand
"I decided to automate my business after realizing that managing overseas staff was becoming simply an impossible challenge.
TimeDoctor has given me the possibility of spend more time working in what gets me paid, instead of "supervising staff" . The system simply it's brilliant, TimeDoctor gives me a clear insight in my staff way of working, time management and efficiency. TimeDoctor has improved my team productivity and in fact I know have more staff thanks to the features that TimeDoctor gives me to manage new people in team. TimeDoctor makes my business run extremely smooth, less time emailing my staff, more time playing with my kids in the park. Worth every single penny, Rob has done his homework, well done mate!"
Gabriel Machuret InternetNinja.com.au, Merimbula Australia
"I was using Rescue time for a year, but it seems that people were still able to hide whilst using it. I tried Time Doctor with some of my team members. There is one lady who I suspected was perhaps working for someone else on the side, and then after using Time Doctor for 2 days and only working 2 hours per day with us, my suspicions were confirmed, she came to me and said, I'm sorry I have another job, and we parted ways amicably.
I find it to be the most useful time management system I have ever come across and it has most certainly helped everyone of us to achieve far more than we ever could have without it."
Gerard O'Donovan Weymouth GerardODonovan.com, UK
"I like the feature that checks the activity on your computer. It asks if you're still working or want to have a break. I work at home, so there are a lot of distractions. I spend most of the time "working". However, when I used Time Doctor, I was able to monitor my productivity. And guess what, I was spending more time on breaks than working."
Mark Javier Marikina City, Philippines
"For the past two days I am using Time Doctor, it has helped me in more ways I could imagine! I needed to get back on track in delivering my projects and devoting a lot of time to social networking sites made me slack off from my responsibilities. But with Time Doctor, I get to finish one task at a time and ended up finishing more work in a day."
Diane Gervacio Makati City, Philippines
"I used to waste a lot of time on the net or on the computer procrastinating and by the end of the day it was difficult to tell what my days work was. Now time doctor can keep all that under tight control. That means that we are more productive individually and as a team.
And as for oursourcing work. i now have one full time contractor in Philippines and one trainee in Uganda all under the close supervision of time doctor."
Mulamata Charles - Uganda
"Love love love love love love love it. You can quote me on that. :)"
Elizabeth Lance - IngenuityGroup.ca, Ottawa, Canada
"I like TimeDoctor very much, and use it to monitor the effectiveness of my staff, who are working from home."
Nils Rognerud - MeetAsianBabe.com, San Francisco CA
"I LOVE IT!!!I am a software developer myself and Have always had a problem with my offsite developers billing for more hours than they work. This is a great tool... It's awesome."
David Vaccaro - FunkyFlip.com, Boston MA
"Your timedoctor program is awesome! It's been fantastic to not only keep closer track of my own time - but to be able to track accurately what my business partners, employees and overseas contractors are doing is very reassuring and freeing! It's great to know the TRUTH!!! I think twice before checking my emails or side tracking onto another task before I've finished the one I'm on. It's not only holding my employees accountable, it's also keeping me accountable to practise what I preach!" Warwick Beauchamp - OnlineMarketing.net.nz, Auckland, New Zealand
"I run a call center where I research commercial properties all over the world….Before TimeDoctor, I had no way of tracking my employees that worked from home. Now, I see when they are working and when they aren't. It has improved my company's productivity by more than 25%!"
Reid Levy - Commercial Wisdom, Broomfield, Colorado
"Time Doctor is just what the doctor ordered for managing remote teams. With regular updates and hard to cheat monitoring tools it not only serves as a great management tool to get more productivity out of your teams but it also does the "micro-managing" for you. Some staff will try to get away with as much as they can but Time Doctor ensures they have a limited leash to run. I have tried many other tools but with the attention to detail and regular updates, Time Doctor is in my opinion, leading the field in remote workforce time monitoring and management."
James Rick - GlobalSky.com, Las Vegas, NV
"My company pays employees hourly for 7 years now, and so far we've used our custom developed apps. I always wanted to use something better, which not only can replace our existing system, but also can increase productivity of my team. After trying Time Doctor for a while, I absolutely loved it and now we're migrating to Time Doctor. Thanks a lot Time Doctor team."
Nikhil Patel - CompliTech.net, Ahmedabad, India
"This is it! This is the software solution I have been looking out for. It is only few hours I have been using it but I can see it solves lots of the problem I have managing around a 15 member team."
Alok Maheshwari - Founder/CEO | HarmonyInfotech.com, Vizag, India
"Hey Rob, I think your software could not have come at a better time for me as I have just set up a web consulting business and am easily distracted. Amazing how much time gets wasted on checking e-mail/facebook. So I think Time doctor is awesome"
Dean - NZ Web Consulting, Tauranga, New Zealand
"I'm really thrilled with this. I manage a team of folks around the world including here in US.
I'm really into operational efficiency and I have to admit, if it takes too much time, we won't use it.
This is so super easy to set and work with all day to manage your time, even I do it lol!"
Lisa Schwartz - OnlineMediaMagic.com, San Jose, CA
"There are so many options for time tracking available in my industry but none of them
seemed to fit just right. I love the pop up reminder that asks if I'm still working on the
task I said I was. The accountability is fantastic! Keeps me focused and on point! Thanks for the great product!"
Melissa Dery - TheGoldenRuleVA.com, New Hampshire USA
"Time Doctor works really well for me as it is made exactly for outsourcing based entrepreneurs."
Ryoma Machida - ZenStartup.jp, Tokyo, Japan
"Thank you for the opportunity to use, trial and test your ‘Time Doctor’ software. I have used the software for the last 6 months specifically for the real estate aspect of my business and for staff I outsource work to, in the Philippines and the USA. I have also used Time Doctor as a company employee as well as managing staff via the backend dashboard.
The system has been extremely well thought out and executed. As a personal user, it made me focus on specific tasks throughout each day and urged me to complete tasks efficiently and in a timely way. It highlighted where I was wasting time and directed me to eliminate that aspect of my day by recognizing social media sites, music, video applications and others and directing me back to the task at hand. The interface is a simple, easy to use design and it’s formatting simplifies what could be difficult and only becomes intrusive when one strays away from the job. It allows for breaks and automatically signs off the user after a period of inactivity. Overall I found the user experience a 9/10.
From a managerial point of view, the daily and weekly summary of work completed by your staff, is second to none. The consolidated weekly report is all you need to manage jobs, set checks and plan future tasks and most importantly, only pay for work being done." Ian Fraser - TheBlockBlog.com, Mebourne, Australia
"This Tool Will Help You Accomplish Your Goals Faster.
The single most valuable resource in your life is your time. You can make more money but you can't fabricate more than 24 hours in a day. The most successful people learn how to focus on the highest priorites first... instead of wasting time on the minutia.
Time Doctor has helped me by first identifying where I'm spending my time (so I can eliminate the things I should not be doing) and then keeps me focused by constantly reminding me of the highest priorities of my day.
In addition, it helps me manage my team better by allowing me to monitor what they are working on each day without me having to micro manage them. With Time Doctor I can help them be more productive and focused on the things that matter the most. It's simply amazing ... just try it and you'll see for yourself the impact it will have on your productivity and focus throughout the day" Cris Chico - CrisChico.com, Hollywood Florida
"Companies with geographically spread out workforce, primarily working from home are going to be much more of a norm than it currently is. TimeDoctor is the best solution that I have seen that addresses this space. It is not only a great productivity tool for individuals, but it is the best tool for managing a geographically spread out and independent workforce."
Sunil Kanderi - Co-Founder | Mokriya.com, Silicon Valley, CA
"I started using Time Doctor two weeks ago. Within days I discovered that one of our virtual staff was spending at least 2 hours of paid time each day studying facebook, adult sites, online games, iTunes downloading etc, and probably spent even more time before I installed TD. Imagine if I had hired this guy for another year? So TD has saved me thousands already. I’ve used dozens of PM tools over the years, none come close to what TD does. I’m sure my team saves more time daily because I save at least 1 hour daily by using it for myself! Thanks Rob Rawson, and all of you in the TD Team, for the most amazing, well thought out productivity tool that has yet been created. You literally will save many businesses from going under due to unproductive practices, unethical remote staff and the many other productivity black holes that are lurking out there. TimeDoctor, is more than a service or a mere product it's a social asset! My family reaps the benefits, and how can I put a value on that? This past 2 weeks since I implemented TD across my teams, I’m calmer, I sleep so much better each night knowing my team is doing exactly what they are paid to do. I can’t thank you enough! (I have ZERO affiliation with TimeDoctor in case you are wondering, except to have been blessed to finally try it out after having it sitting on my desktop for months.)" Paul Cermak - Local Search Expert, Sydney, Australia
"I currently use time doctor. I think it is an excellent tool for staff monitoring. I really recommend it!"
Pilar - PickAWeb.co.uk, London, UK
"Time Doctor is interactive. I use it as a daily tool to make sure I am being productive. It enables me to stay focused in order to complete a specific task. The reports I receive are really dynamic even to track time I work for a specific client in order to bill them accordingly. In the past time has gotten lost in the mix when I’m working on multiple projects at once. This applies to my team as well. I can see what tasks they have completed and when they are working. Time Doctor really helps me prepare follow up meetings and not micro manage." Espree Devora - EspreeDevora.com
"I chose TimeDoctor since I felt that RescueTime wasn't meeting my needs (it's better for personal use, lots of fancy graphs etc.) but your solution it targeted towards helping me to manage my virtual team of people in a dead simple way, and I like that.It was really (surprisingly) easy to get setup and get going."
Matt Ackerson - Petovera.com
"At the beginning, it wasn't that great to find out that some of us spent more than two daily hours "on a break". But the next day, the average hours worked increased 20%. So it's a great product, and a great tool not only for monitoring outsourced employees, but also as a personal time management tool. Gets you eager to beat the day before. Needless to say, the support is unbeatable (couldn't expect less from a company that offers such a product!)"
Pepe Amorin - VP Marketing | Startups.com Network, Inc.
"I am very happy upon discovering your product! This will soon become all we need to manage office workers, clients, and outsourced helpers!"
Jalex Hongco - Web Simpleworks, Iloilo City, Philippines
"Employees started to work more now to accomplish their tasks. For example, after two days with time doctor one of the employees asked me what he should do if he has idle time. Well.. I guess it was always this way, but he never asked before we started using Time Doctor."
Mauricio Etcheverry - YoreParo.com, Montevideo, Uruguay
"Time Doctor is a crucial tool for us. We're a online marketing agency with team members in 5 timezones - Time Doctor keeps track of everyone's billable time so that I don't have to. Thanks for making such an intuitive, comprehensive, and all around KILLER TOOL!"
Jon Tucker - Senior Strategist @ CompeteOnWeb.com
"Time Doctor is incredible -- I can't believe I ever lived without it. Far superior to rescue time. I love the big "GO" and "Break Button". I found rescue time far to confusing--since what tasks I'm working on has little correlation with whether or not my computer has google docs open ect. Thanks for such an amazing product!"
Luke Avedon - New York
"I use TimeDoctor to manage my entire team. My company manages about 100+ accounts for small businesses and all our team is 100% virtual. I could not manage my team's time successfully without TimeDoctor. It is a must have tool for those who use virtual work force."
Matthew Hunt - Head Coach at Small Business Online Coach
"The software is great! I really enjoy it, so far I've only personally
used it but as my projects expand and business grows I plan on using
it for future employees as well!"
Ryan Littler - Ryanorion.com, Tampa, FL
"Managing a team with over 25 people from all around the world was a difficult task – but TimeDoctor provided the task management, screenshots and motivational tools to turn my entrepreneurial business into a success. With it’s essential administrative features and reports, I can easily scale my team without losing the control I need. Highly recommended!"
Hamed Farhadian - Hamed.de, London
"Timedoctor has become a core system for our company. As we increase our offshore staffing, timedoctor provides real control and visibility into what our resources are working on. After email and CRM it is the 3rd most used software in our company. Keep it up guys!"
Mitchell Bourne - CEO | FlemingtonDirect.com.au, Sydney, Australia
"I really like Time Doctor and what it has to offer. I work for an IT Consulting company and we are always busy. I juggle many tasks on a day to day basis. I like Time Doctor’s ability to track my time and send an email from the previous day. It works well since we need to enter time for everything we do."
David Camp - ClearNorthTech.com, Plymouth MN
"I found time doctor via a friend. I told him that I was having trouble getting everything accomplished that I needed to and felt a little overwhelmed. He said he felt the same and came across Time Doctor at one his conventions he was at and started using it.
I just started on Friday, however Friday was a very productive day and TD really helped me stay on course. It's not so much me being accountable to a boss--b/c I'm the boss; but it's more just holding myself accountable to certain time restrictions and telling me how I can better utilize my time."
"Time Doctor is absolutely fantastic. I can't say enough good things about Time Doctor. It has really helped to keep me in focus and work more efficiently.I've tried many time management programs and they all suffer from the same thing...too complicated. I think that is one of the best things about Time Doctor - simplicity!".
Andre Avalos - SeeCollegeDegrees.com
"I've been using your software for three days and I love it....it has definitely given me a sense of clarity about my daily tasks and my time. I have an online magazine and I use social media quite a bit to promote it, so getting sidetracked is pretty easy. For example, sometimes I'll write a story, then post it on my site's facebook page. I get the little pop-up that asks if I'm still working on the task -- most of the time I am, but sometimes I'll realize that I clicked something else related and need to re-focus.".
Lindsay Kottmann - CheerCincy.com
"Hi guys, excellent product. Non-invasive, dead simple to use, keep it up & keep growing - you rock.".
