MindSalt Overview

What is MindSalt?

MindSalt Time & Expense is a web-based application that allows businesses and employees to access their timesheets and expenses from anywhere through the online interface for tracking time and expenses, monitoring projects in real time, as well as managing and approving timesheets and expense reports. Users are able to monitor costs, budgets, view project profitability, and bill customers via a single platform.

With MindSalt Time & Expense, employees and managers can track time from their desk or while on the go via mobile device using web-based timesheets with weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly, or monthly views. Users can enter hours manually or use the built-in stopwatch to keep track of their hours. Configurable approval workflows enable employee managers, project managers, and other approvers to approve timesheets with a single click. The MindSalt platform identifies which employees have not yet completed their timesheets, and email reminders are sent to those who have not entered a sufficient amount of time. Reporting tools help users to monitor costs, control budgets, review profitability and employee proficiency, and more.

Tools for expense collection help to streamline the expense reporting process, track the company's expenses, and simplify the reimbursement process. Users can record expenses on the go via mobile device, as well as store receipts electronically using a camera enabled iPhone or Android device to instantly capture receipt images and attach them to expense reports. Detailed reporting enables users to categorize and report on their expenses by type, payment method, client, and project. Basic or advanced approvals and workflows can be configured to suit business needs.

Mindsalt Review

Mindsalt is a great "off the shelf" time reporting system. The base system has diverse functionality for creating multiple projects, tasks/functions, assigning task functions to staff, manager review and reports. Customer services has been exceptional from response time to problem solving. My recent experience with customer service caused me to go from a loyal customer to a more loyal customer.

Easy to use, great customer service

MindSalt is easy both to set up and administer and to enter time and expenses. The reporting can be a bit clunky; we usually have to export csv files and modify from there. Customer service is speedy and helpful.

We are using Mindsalt for years to track our consultant's Timesheets and Travel Expenses.

The friendly UI is a true time saver. It is very easy and fast to export the data we capture to our information system.

I have been using MindSalt for my timekeeping and billing ever since I opened my one-man law office in 2008. It's been a perfect fit ... my clients get a monthly invoice, detailing time and expenses together with applicable taxes, and I'm able to send out invoices by email. The monthly fee to MindSalt is very reasonable; and all the work is done "in the cloud," no need for me to purchase an expensive accounting/billing system. Thanks!

Customer services has been exceptional from response time to problem solving. My recent experience with customer service caused me to go from a loyal customer to a more loyal customer.

Pros

All of the base functionality, ease of use. Reports are great. Ability to assign staff to one project only so when they log on they only see the project they are assigned.

Cons

It would be great if administrator when using an app could perform administrator functions. When accessing via the app, functionality is limited to user interface for entry. It would be great that once a project and functions are assigned to staff by administrator that when the time sheet is viewed by user, all assigned task functions are loaded and viewed by user as opposed to having to having to select from pull down each time.

The friendly UI is a true time saver. It is very easy and fast to export the data we capture to our information system.

Pros

Fresh and responsive UI as well as the ability to export both Timesheet and Travel Expenses with all attribute that are required by our analytical and accounting systems. The customer support responsiveness and the ability to fit the timesheets to our business model were key in our decision.

Cons

We had to choose between a weekly or monthly view of the timesheets. For some reasons, it is a structuring parametrization we cannot change by ourself. We would prefer to provide our users with the ability to change it by themselfes at any time.
