Summary & Pricing

As a standalone product, Chrometa is a good fit for small tax and accounting firms that need an advanced web-based timekeeping system but have simple billing needs. For firms of any size, it works well as a timekeeping component used in conjunction with another accounting or time and billing system, especially for users who struggle to use timers and hate filling out timesheets. The basic plan is $19 per month. With advanced exporting features, the basic plus and premium plans are $29 and $49 per month, respectively.
