Since we at QuickSchools take remote working so seriously, I decided to create an app to help us track the hours logged by our contributors and to easily pay them via PayPal.
The result of that is SirraTeam.com.
Here’s what SirraTeam offers that I was specifically looking for:
- It’s Free! The other solutions like PayMo charge by user. Since we have more than 30 contributors, that can add up. SirraTeam is free while in beta (which will be for a while) and after beta we plan to keep prices much lower than the competition.
- Ultra-simple time tracking. I don’t want too many features that our contributors might get lost in. I just want simple time tracking.
- Integration with PayPal for quick payments. This was the biggest thing. It’s our philosophy to pay our contributors frequently, sometimes as often as weekly. And with 30 contributors that got really time consuming, fast. SirraTeam is fully integrated with PayPal, so I can just click “Pay” and the PayPal payment is created.
- Delegate payments. I can delegate the responsibility of paying specific users to managers. This is important as we scale up the team.
Lastly, I think it’s worth mentioning that SirraTeam.com works from the point of view of your organization/company: You create an account, you invite your contributors to log in, and they track hours with you. And then you pay them. Many other solutions are a little different in that they take the view of the freelancer – they log hours and invoice you.
SirraTeam.com is open to everyone. Check it out and let me know what you think. You can email me at aris at sirrateam.com if you have any questions or comments.
