Chrometa Introduces “Smart Time Capture” Software For Accounting Professionals

New Cloud-Based Version Enables Users to Get Paid for Every Second of Billable Work They Perform

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 23, 2011 – Chrometa LLC, creator of productivity
and time capture tools, today announced the availability of its cloud-based
time management application, Chrometa. Through Software-as-a-Service technology,
the updated version is designed to help accountants increase monthly billings
and maximize potential revenue without working more hours.

In addition to the time tracking capabilities included in earlier versions,
“smart time capture” capabilities remember previous actions and classifications
of tasks. For example, users can set keyword-based rules, e.g., a client’s
name. Any time the user works on a tax return, audit, compilation, consulting
engagement or any other accounting matter with the keyword identified, Chrometa
will automatically group the time in the appropriate category. As a result,
Chrometa captures and categorizes all billable activity with no effort or data
entry required on the user’s part.

“Ease of use and quick time reconciliation were the driving factors for
Chrometa’s web app,” said Brett Owens, CEO and co-founder of Chrometa
LLC. “We want to simplify our customer’s lives, so we made Chrometa smarter.
Comprehensive time capture and fast categorization by account/client are very
important to our users, and thanks to their great feedback and input, we’ve
drastically improved these features in our new web app. With users increasingly
computing on more and more devices, we knew it was important to build a cloud
app that could sync the time spent on each device and consolidate it in a central
secure location for quick time reconciliation.”

How Chrometa Works:
• Chrometa is a software tool that runs in the background of a PC, without
interfering with established work flow and routine.
• Chrometa automatically records the amount of time spent editing documents,
writing e-mails or even conducting research online.
• Chrometa’s logs contain only relevant activity; keystrokes and content
are not stored in order to protect information and confidentiality.
• Time entries are uploaded securely to the user’s central web
account for quick time reconciliation.
• Keyword-based rules are available to further automate and facilitate
the time reconciliation process.

The ability to manage client confidentiality is built into Chrometa with unique
features that allow users to track specific activities the professional chooses,
or even block other activities that users would not like tracked. The new release
also includes the ability to delete activities. Data is stored securely on Amazon’s
cloud servers, and HTTPS encryption is utilized throughout the application to
provide maximum security.

Chrometa’s web app is available now for a free 30-day trial (no credit
card required) at Chrometa or call 916-254-0260 to speak with a company representative.
Chrometa is available immediately for a $19 per month pay-as-you-go fee, which
includes free e-mail and phone support.
