Comparison of project tracking with Beebole and Excel

Options and Pricing

No Hidden Fees or Unexpected Added Costs

All of Beebole's features are available for the single flat rate of $6.99 per user / month, including round the clock live support and unlimited data retention. The Microsoft 365 suite starts at $6 per user / month with a one year minimum. You'll need to pay $22 per user to get advanced security, access and data control, and cyber threat protection. While many companies already pay for Excel, it's important to bear in mind hidden costs like in-house maintenance and data retention.

Alternative to Excel timesheets

Simple To Use

Multiple Ways to Track Time Quickly and Easily

Excel offers no way to automatically track time or run timers. All working time must be entered manually, which is subjective and error prone. Spreadsheets won't detect overlap, duplicate hours, or missing time. Beebole lets users track time manually, use the one-click timer, or fill timesheets with scheduled time. It also has automated reminders and makes it easy to approve and lock hours, all features missing from Excel.

Customizable Reports

Take Control of Your Valuable Time Data

Using spreadsheets for time tracking lets you use your data however you wish. Excel reports are, of course, totally customizable and formulas make them extremely versatile. However, you'll need to build these reports yourself. With Beebole you can error-free create, share, and export unlimited, professional looking charts and tables on anything from working hours to project profitability. Plus, you can connect real time data from Beebole with your sheets using our Excel add-in.

Is time tracking with Excel secure?

Security and Compliance

Get Reliable, Secure and Compliant Timesheets

At the end of the day, Excel spreadsheets are not a secure or reliable way to track and store your company's data. Not only is manual time entry error prone, but irretrievable data may be accidentally deleted or overwritten. It is also difficult to set roles and authorizations in spreadsheets and restrict access to sensitive data. Beebole was designed with security in mind. It offers audit trails, unlimited data retention, roles and permissions, and state of the art server security.
