Sage Intelligent Time: No More W(AI)ting for Timesheets

By Heather Mellinger

AI technology has been taking the business world by storm. Sage Intacct is just the latest adopter of automated technology with Sage Intelligent Time, the first artificial intelligence (AI) powered application built directly into the Sage Intacct cloud financial management system.

Available online or via a mobile app, Sage Intelligent Time boasts being the only AI-powered time entry system available thus far and provides continuous, timely, and more accurate insights to better manage billable time in services-based businesses.

How Does it Work?

Sage Intelligent Time uses an AI-powered personal time assistant to enable service professionals to complete their timesheets quicker and more accurately by automatically reconstructing their workday. It ensures workers account for all of their work, including unplanned activities that can be easily forgotten.

By helping to ensure all billable time is captured, Sage Intelligent Time can recover up to $10,000* in annual billable time per employee typically lost to human error such as not billing, or under-billing, customers.

*This number assumes an hour per week is recovered at a $200/hr billing rate.

Intelligent Timesheets Streamline Data Entry

With Sage Intelligent Time your finance team can focus on preparing invoices, reviewing key metrics, and closing the books. No more hounding staff for late timesheets, or painstaking time entry reviews looking for errors. Sage Intelligent Time can automatically alert your team of a late or rejected time entry, while the Time Assistant helps drive timesheet accuracy no matter how long it takes your team to complete their timesheet.

Additional benefits include:

  • AI reconstructs the work week across multiple projects to capture every billable moment;
  • Accurate project costing to improve estimates of future projects;
  • Increased cash flow with faster billing cycles and accurate invoices;
  • Eliminate reconciliation issues due to disconnected time entry systems; and
  • No more soul-crushing timesheets.

AI in a Mobile App

To make matters even better, Sage Intelligent Time was developed into a mobile app for both Android and iPhone. It’s sleek design is built for the mobile interface and allows your team to complete their timesheet while waiting for their coffee or for a Zoom meeting to begin. The timesheet application delivers all the same capabilities of the Time Assistant, putting the power of AI in the palm of your team’s hand.

Key benefits from the app include:

  • Mobile application for Android and iPhone for access on most common devices
  • Time entry and approval capabilities encourage high productivity for busy teams
  • Easy-to-use timesheets help to drive faster time entry with less drudgery

The End of Privacy at Work?

Nope! User privacy is built into Sage Intelligent Time. The user is in complete control over what types of information to provide to their personal time assistant, and the activity data collected by the time assistant is visible only to the user. Once Sage Intelligent Time suggests a time entry, the user can review and adjust it before applying each suggested entry using a simple drag-and-drop interface. Transparency is important at Sage, and Sage Intelligent Time is a reflection of that.
