Options UK: “We are delighted to be working with Pillar Software on the implementation of our new timesheet system.
There were two main reasons why we chose Profess Time Manager and why we believe it’s such a good fit for us.
Firstly, we wanted a system that was easy and intuitive to use and didn’t mean that we had to spend time and resources training all of our staff in
Secondly, we wanted a system that would enable us to structure it initially to meet our basic needs but allow scope to develop and use more advanced
functionality over time.
For us Pillar ‘tick both boxes’ and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Pillar.”
