TSheets is a web-based and mobile time tracking and employee scheduling app for companies needing to track, manage, and report time. The service runs in a web browser or on mobile phones and integrates with various payroll and accounting platforms like QuickBooks, Xero, Gusto, Square, and others. TSheets is an alternative to a paper timesheet or punch cards.

TSheets has more than 20,000 customers across 100+ countries and have processed more than 120,000,000 timesheets since 2006 and over $8 billion in payroll each year. TSheets is available on Android, iOS, and Google Chrome, or a desktop or mobile web browser.

Headquartered in Eagle, Idaho, TSheets opened a second location in Sydney, Australia, in early 2015.

History[edit]

Based in Eagle, Idaho, TSheets was co-founded in 2006 by CEO Matt Rissell[2] and CTO Brandon Zehm. In 2008, TSheets was the first company to create and release a native employee time tracking app for the iPhone. In 2012 TSheets released an integration with accounting and payroll software QuickBooks. In 2015, TSheets accepted $15 million in growth equity funding from Summit Partners, bought a building in Eagle, Idaho, and opened a second location in Sydney, Australia. TSheets currently employs more than 150 employees.

On December 5, 2017, Intuit announced an agreement to acquire TSheets. The transaction is valued at approximately $340 million of cash and other consideration and will close on January 11, 2018. Once the transaction closes, Time Capture will become a new business unit within Intuit’s Small Business and Self-Employed Group with Matt Rissell assuming the leader role reporting to Alex Chriss. TSheets’s Eagle, Idaho site will become an Intuit location.[3]

Funding[edit]

In 2015, after nine years of lean startup methodologies, TSheets [4] accepted $15 million in funding from Summit Partners. The funding enabled the company to grow their team and expand their product offering. Funding in hand, CEO Matt Rissell purchased the very first TSheets headquarters in Eagle, Idaho, grew from 30 to 100+ employees, and opened a second office in Sydney, Australia, that same year.

PRO Program[edit]

The TSheets PRO Program was launched in 2013. The program is for accountants and bookkeepers and is designed to assist their clients in simplifying payroll and other processes. The TSheets PRO Program has grown to more than 8,000 accountants and bookkeepers (PROs) worldwide. TSheets PROs get access to TSheets for free, 20% commission on all client referrals, and access to industry leaders.

In 2016, TSheets released the TSheets Accountant View — a TSheets account functionality available only to TSheets PROs. Accountant View allows accountants to view their clients’ TSheets accounts in a simple dashboard. Accountants can switch back and forth between client accounts without having to log in and out of each account individually.

Product[edit]

TSheets began as a very basic web-based time tracking software and is now a mobile time tracking and scheduling software/app with GPS location tracking, seamless software integrations, and custom settings.

Employees clock in or out using the TSheets mobile apps (available on Android, iOS, or Google Chrome), desktop or mobile browser, dial-in (available in both English and Spanish), text, or tweet. Employees can track time against multiple job codes throughout the day, take a paid or unpaid break, and check their schedule — whenever and wherever they work.

Account admins can set custom company settings, receive alerts when an employee has clocked in late or is approaching overtime, and review/approve employee time cards from any location and any device. All time, location, and job data is stored securely in the cloud, allowing users to export that data to their preferred accounting or payroll program or reference it as needed. TSheets maintains an audit log of each and every action.

TSheets released scheduling functionality in 2016 in an effort to save business owners time by making it easy to manage and schedule employees. TSheets Scheduling works with TSheets’ existing time tracking software and mobile apps, allowing employees to clock in and out directly from the schedule from their desktop or mobile device.

Software integration[edit]

TSheets has partnered and integrated with a number of HR, accounting, and payroll software. It also features an open API — allowing developers to merge TSheets with their existing applications and software (if no integration exists).
