Life’s too short to be bored at work. We can help.

With the New Adobe WorkflowMax Extension, Time Tracking Has Never Been So .. Creative!

You’re creative. You enjoy making things beautiful, and you love making gorgeous things that people will fall in love with. You love who you are and what you do.

Creativity is in your DNA. However, you dislike when you have to interrupt your creative thinking process to track time on your agency’s stand-alone, time-tracking software.

Tracking time or filling in time sheets is not one of your favorite tasks, but it’s important for your creativity to make informed business decisions and charge clients accurately.

We get it.

That’s why, today we’re launching a brand new Adobe WorkflowMax time tracking extension built specifically for making your life super easy.

WorkflowMax Adobe Extension – What is it?

It’s a reliable and flexible time tracking extension that plugs directly into the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign)—so that you can track your billable time right within your creative working space.

Consequently, you can be more focused on doing what you love, and your team leader can get the data that he or she needs to make better business decisions. Check out this short 50-second video below for a quick overview:

How to get started with the WorkflowMax Adobe Widget in 2 minutes:
