Replicon, leading provider of cloud-based time-tracking applications, allows developers to integrate Replicon features with third party applications via the Replicon API. Whether time needs to be tracked for billable hours, project management, employee schedules, or some additional reason; Replicon provides real-time visibility into time, resource, and project data.

Replicon's API sits as a key to its larger strategy to expand its business through partnerships and third party integration. The Social+Capital Partnership founder (and Replicon investor), Chamath Palihapitiya, commented:

"[Replicon is] partnering with other companies and integrating outside products or services to accelerate business growth. With this growing interdependence, there needs to be a common platform that can help companies deal with increasingly complex business needs and labor practices. Replicon is poised to become this platform for the future."

Replicon was founded in 1996 to help companies manage time and billing in a more streamlined fashion. Today, Replicon serves over 1.5 million people around the world, across 7,800 organizations. With an impressive awards list, and a user base that beams with the likes of Facbook, Dropbox, Xerox, HP, and many more; Replicon sits in a position primed for Palihapitiya's vision.

The Replicon API uses REST protocol and returns calls in a JSON data format. Most of Replicon's features remain available via the API. Sample methods include accessing services, managing services, and managing account information. For more information, visit the developer site.

Many legacy business management tools have moved to the cloud. Time-tracking seems an obvious choice for its massive data use and laborious maintenance. For over a decade, Replicon has developed and continues to build the most streamlined, simple time-tracking tool the web has to offer. With confidence of world class customers and investors backing its cause, expect Replicon to enjoy continued success.

An <a href="http://www.sapience.net/blog/employee-time-tracker" rel="nofollow">Employee Time Tracker</a> pretty much works like a spreadsheet of tasks to do. These tasks can then be assigned to different employees that are also using the system. Whenever employees would perform these tasks, they will log in, and their work history can then be retrieved and reviewed. This type of software will be able to track how efficient people are in performing their jobs, and this can be used to review how effective the current workforce is, allowing managers to make more information in order to decide as to whether to re-delegate tasks, remove unproductive workers, or hire more personnel.
