Differences Between Project Clock Versions
Project Clock is a project time tracking system that keeps accurate billing time records and keeps track of project
costs and schedules. See the Project Clock page for additional details.
There are six different versions of Project Clock: Project Clock Standard, Project Clock Pro, Project Clock Client/Server,
Project Clock Web, Project Clock Palm and Employee Project Clock.
Project Clock Standard
This version of Project Clock is the least expensive and can only run on single user machines. Data cannot be shared
over a network and there is no custom reporting feature.
Project Clock Pro
Project Clock Pro has all the features of Project Clock standard plus it can be used with multiple users sharing common
data over a network. Project Clock Pro also has a custom reporting tool to allow end users to create their own reports.
Pro has a security feature to prevent users from accessing the time data of others. The Pro version also has a
time sheet entry form to enter a weeks worth of data at a single sitting.
Project Clock Client/Server
Project Clock C/S is the most expensive of the Project Clock versions. The client/server version of Project Clock is ideal
for small or large numbers of simultaneous users in a Windows environment who need to access time charge data over
the intranet or Internet. Project Clock C/S has all the feature of Project Clock Pro except that the custom reporting
feature can only be accessed in the server application. Project Clock C/S is a true client/server implementation in
that all database access takes place only on the server. Additionally, the data is shared over a TCP/IP connection.
This means you can have a server running in Montana and have a client with an open Internet connection running
in China sharing time data like it was in Montana.
Project Clock Web
Project Clock Web run on a browser on virtually any operating system. The web version of Project Clock is ideal for small
or large numbers of simultaneous users in any environment who need to access time charge data over the intranet
or Internet. Due to the limitations of HTML not all the features of the Windows versions of Project Clock can be found
in the web version.
Project Clock Palm
Project Clock Palm runs on PalmOS based handheld computers. Project Clock Palm can be used by itself to collect time
spent on different projects. However, the main use of Project Clock Palm is to allow the data collected on the Palm
to be imported into the Windows version of Project Clock.
Employee Project Clock
Employee Project Clock is similar to Project Clock Pro but with a few important exceptions. Unlike Pro, Employee PC does
not have the Client field and time records are not stamped with the person's network LoginID. Instead Employee
Project Clock has the Employee field. When using Employee Project Clock each Employee must choose their name from a pull-down
list before they start or stop billing. Employee Project Clock was intended to replace the old clunky time-card machines.
