Differences Between Timesheets Editions

CyberMatrix Timesheets is an employee timesheet entry application that allows people to quickly enter the time they worked on different activities. See the Timesheets page for additional details.

There are five different editions of Timesheets: Timesheets Standard, Timesheets Client/Server, Timesheets Enterprise, Timesheets Web and Timesheets CE.


Timesheets Standard

CyberMatrix Timesheets is very similar to the timesheet entry feature of Project Clock Pro. Unlike Project Clock Pro, a manager must approve timesheets in CyberMatrix Timesheets before they can be used in reports. CyberMatrix Timesheets was designed for those companies that do not need precise details of time employees spend on projects just a quick way of entering the work week's time in one setting. It can be used with multiple users sharing common data over a network.

Pros

  • Timesheet data can be shared over a network.
  • Easy to install.
  • Inexpensive.
  • User-friendly interface.

Cons

  • More likely to require occasional database re-indexing maintenance in an unstable environment. An unstable environment is one in which a machine crashes or is powered off improperly.
  • Poor performance with many (10 or more) people using it at the same time.
  • Can only be used on Windows PCs.

Timesheets Client/Server


Timesheets Client/Server is ideal for small or large numbers of people using it at the same time on a Windows network who need to enter employee time data over the intranet or Internet. Timesheets Client/Server has all the features of Timesheets Standard except that data cannot be backed up and restored from the client software. Timesheets Client/Server is a true client-server implementation in that only the server directly access the database. Additionally, the data is shared over a TCP/IP connection. This means you can have a server running in North Dakota and have a client with an open Internet connection running in England sharing timesheet data like it was in North Dakota.

Pros

  • Timesheet data can be accessed over an intranet or even the Internet.
  • Very little chance of requiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many people using it at the same time.
  • User-friendly interface.

Cons

  • Can only be used on Windows PCs.
  • Cannot back up and restore data from the client software.
  • Cannot directly connect to other database servers such as MS SQL Server or MySQL.


Timesheets Enterprise


Timesheets Enterprise is ideal for large numbers of people using it at the same time on a Windows network who need to access employee time data over the network or over Internet. Timesheets Enterprise has all the feature of Timesheets Client/Server. The biggest advantage of Timesheets Enterprise over Timesheets Client/Server is that the Enterprise edition is scalable. You can start with a small group of users using a single database server. Over time you can increase the number of users. If performance starts to degrade you can use your database server's load balancing capabilities to improve performance. Using the advanced features of database servers, you can accommodate unlimited numbers of people.

Pros

  • Timesheet data can be shared over an intranet or even the Internet.
  • Data can be stored on your choice of several database servers, including MS SQL Server and MySQL.
  • Very little chance of requiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many people using it at the same time.
  • User-friendly interface.

Cons

  • Can only be used on Windows PCs.
  • Must use and maintain an external database server, such as MS SQL Server and MySQL.



Timesheets Web

You can access Timesheets Web from a browser on virtually any operating system. The web edition of Timesheets is ideal for small or large numbers of people using it at the same time who need to share employee time data over the intranet or Internet. Due to the limitations of web applications not all the features of the Windows editions of Timesheets are available in the web edition. For example, the Data Manager in Timesheets Web is not as easy to use and Timesheets Web cannot synchronize data with Quickbooks, MS Project or Timesheets CE.

Pros
  • Timesheet data can be accessed on the intranet or even the Internet.
  • Very little chance of requiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many people using it at the same time.
  • Client can be accessed from any web browser.

Cons

  • Less functional Html interface.
  • Must run the server software on a Windows-based PC.
  • Cannot edit or create reports.
  • Cannot connect directly to other database servers, such as MySQL or MS SQL Server.



Timesheets Web Enterprise

Like Timesheets Web, Timesheets Web Enterprise can run from a browser on virtually any operating system. The web edition of Timesheets Enterprise is ideal for large numbers of simultaneous users in a Windows environment who need to access time charge data over the intranet or Internet. Like Timesheets Enterprise, Timesheets Web Enterprise is scalable. Due to the limitations of HTML not all the features of the Windows editions of Timesheets can be found in the web version.  For example, Timesheets Web does not have  approval by project.
 
Pros
  • Data can be accessed over the intranet or even the Internet.
  • Very little chance ofrequiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many simultaneous users.
  • Client can be accessed from any web browser.


Cons

  • Less functional Html interface.
  • Must run the server software on a Windows-based PC.
  • Cannot edit or create reports.

Timesheets CE

Timesheets CE runs on Windows Mobile (except SmartPhone) and Windows Embedded handheld computers (PDAs). Timesheets CE can be used by itself to record employee time spent on different projects. However, the main use of Timesheets CE is to enable the data collected on a Windows Mobile device to be imported into the Windows edition of Timesheets.
