Time Tracker

Silverlight web application for tracking time and cost spent on issues

This is an enterprise level tool for tracking time and costs based on the activities of a company's employees.

Some feature highlights are:

  • Automatic invoicing allows generation of invoices based on actual worktime information - the invoices can be generated in either Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel formats
  • Values such as hourly rates can be configured globally, and then overridden on different levels (for example, they can be overridden for a particular customer)
  • The individual user permissions can be configured with great detail
  • Integrated travel expenses tracking
  • The solution supports internationalization; the user can configure the language the interface will be shown in.

 The application is organized on a three tier architecture:

  • Data layer - stores all the application data, uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 as database engine. Can be extended to support new database back-ends without affecting the rest of the application.
  • Business layer - contains the core application logic: validating entries, generating reports, permissions, and specific business logic. The functionality is exposed by means of a standardized Web Service interface, which allows easy integration (via XML-based SOAP protocol) with any third party applications.
  • Presentation layer - represents the user interface, and has been implemented in several clients: a web client (universally accessible), a desktop client (for desktop and laptop computers), and a mobile client (optimized for mobile devices, such as phones and PDA's
