    Our recording studio is in need of a software that can handle the scheduling and booking of studio time, as well as billing for those engineers. Ideally, the software would require the engineer to log in upon starting up the main computer so that all minutes would be accounted for. As much as we trust our engineers to keep track of their hourse, it would be much easier for all of us if there was some software that could do it for us. Thanks!

    MS Excel would allow you to do all this. Dangle a small amount of cash in front of an IT student and they could whip it up in moments in something shinier than Excel.

    Thanks! I'll check these out. I guess what I need is something that has to be filled out every time a Pro Tools session is launched and closed. So I'm always welcoming suggestions.

    Easy solution, cctv pointed at your worker. If you want to be a comptroller who accounts for every minute sit and watch.

    No. It's not that I need to account for every minute. It's so the engineers have an easier time of tracking time that's owed to them. Some hours are paid to them directly, and some go into recoupment.

    This is an issue of trust.

    have you looked into Archie or Scheduall ?

    I doubt that you will find any thing that can cross reference to opening a PT File on their rig. Your really going to have to 1) trust them to log when they are working on a project. or 2) do not sign off on their time sheet when they hand it in if the hours do not match..

    Couldn't this be remedied if you have the computers networked? Each logging on/off would make a digital fingerprint wouldn't it?

    As far as billing to the clients you could use any typical software like Quick Books. But for timekeeping if you have MS Outlook, there is a timer in the journal feature.
