During the WES 2010 showcase we met with the guys from Widality a company focused on providing a better way to keep track of your company billed expenses. If you are looking for a better way to keep track of e-mail time, call records and mobile activities for company billing purposes, Widality has you covered. Widality offers a free application, Call Time Tracker by momentem and Momentem a subscription version for power users.
With Call Time Tracker you can log your calls, or e-mails as soon as the call has ended with a popup window that allows you to tag it with different categories or simply dismiss it. The application also runs in the background and it learns from your input. At the end of each month you get a detailed excel spread sheet with all your activity recorded on it.
The monthly paid subscription version has all the services the free application has and more. The premium version allows you to also manually type in activities and expenses, and generate customized reports in an excel spread sheet.
- Tag your mobile calls directly from the handset
- Associate your calls with specific contacts and projects
- Tag the time spent on emails
- Log expenses and other activities (such as meetings)
- With each tag you can type some notes (e.g. what the call was about)
- Flag the cost of the call and the time as billable or non-billable
- Send an instant email to yourself or your contact with a reminder of the follow-up actions from the call
- Generate on-demand reports of your tagged call activity directly on the handset
- Request a detailed Excel report of your tagged activities directly to your email
- 14 day no risk trial, no credit card information needed
This service is not designed for a consumer use but it could also be helpful if you want to log important calls for different reasons. Widality provides a great business tool if you are using your own BlackBerry for business purpose or the opposite if you use your company issue BB for personal calls. The paid service cost $8.00 dollars a month with different payment methods including PayPal, credit card, monthly or pay a full year subscription.
During the WES 2010 right before the event was about to wrap up Widality reached their 100,000 subscriber mark, what a great way to end the event.
