How to Automatically Capture All Your Email and Mobile Phone Time

By Brett Owens

Chrometa160pxAs you know, it’s nearly impossible to accurately track your email time with merely a start/stop timer. You’re probably bouncing from email to email in rapid fire mode. The last thing you want to worry about is timekeeping, especially if you switch from one client to another as you reply to email messages.

The “magic” of Chrometa is that it runs in the background of your PC (and home Mac), quietly making note of my activities. It’s like having your own personal timekeeper.

But as great as Chrometa has been, it’s had one big flaw—it didn’t capture important details when generating email-based time entries. Such as the “to” and “from” fields for emails … and also the details on Outlook messages viewed from the preview pane.

We listened to your requests—that email details needed to be a priority for Chrometa.

For you heavy email users, we have great news: We now have special Chrometa plugins available for Microsoft Outlook, Gmail, and Mac Mail.

Once you install them, you’ll never lose another minute of email time (you’re probably losing thousands of dollars in billable hours each year … or even month … today).

If you’re already a Chrometa user, please download your complimentary plugin for Outlook and Gmail now.

If you’re not yet a Chrometa user, you can get started with Chrometa for free—and be up and running in a matter of minutes.

Please start capturing your email time automatically with Chrometa now (with plugins now available for Outlook and Gmail).

NEW: Android and iPhone Call Tracking

According to our research, it’s likely that you lose track of a significant portion of billable time that you spend on your smartphone. In a billable hour world, every lost second hurts you financially.

Chrometa’s new smartphone time capture service solves this problem by turning your phone calls into billable time entries automatically. You can then send these entries to a timesheetinvoice, or billing system with one click of the mouse.
