In January, we took a closer look at 2013’s tech trends. One thing was obvious: mobile devices are gaining ground, and the trend will continue in the years to come...
In all fairness, this isn’t exactly breaking news. As a matter of fact, the trend started with the launch of the first iPhone. So at TimeLog, we’ve started monitoring mobile time registrations.
Increased use of mobile devices – on our website too
Mobile traffic on timelog.dk and mobile time registrations boomed in 2012. With the launch of our new website in September, website traffic from tablets in particular has increased steadily compared to 2011. New tablets offer more possibilities in terms of tracking time and gathering on-the-spot information, such as user guides. In other words, you can now remain comfortably seated while working on your iPad, while the TimeLog Tracker app automatically tracks your time.
13,424 mobile-device time registrations were tracked in 2012. At TimeLog, we expect this number to rise throughout the year, matching our steadily growing customer base. The launch of our Android app has contributed to the number of mobile-device time registrations. This number equals an average 1,000 smartphone time registrations a month, or more than 30 registrations per customer per day. We’re already looking forward to comparing this year’s results in January 2014.
More than 10m hours
For the more conventional computer variant, 2012 showed just over 10 million hours of time registration across more than 3 million stationary devices such as PCs and Macs. Our customers created more than 170,000 invoices, corresponding to nearly 15,000 invoices a month. Statistics are only ever as useful when compared with previous years, which is why 2014 will make this year all the more interesting. In particular, we at TimeLog will keep an eye on the app sector when we release our Windows Phone app later this year.
