Financial Goal Tracking
Harpoon helps you set, track, and achieve a yearly revenue goal for your business. Hitting this goal means your expenses are covered, salaries are paid, and your business is profitable. You'll have peace of mind knowing exactly when and where to schedule new client projects from month to month as you stay on track to achieving your yearly revenue goal.
Harpoon automatically tracks your team's project activity and converts it into an accurate forecast of your expected revenue. You'll see at a glance how much revenue your business can expect to generate, when it will be collected, and how that revenue affects your yearly and monthly goal progress.
Harpoon helps you determine the potential value and cost of a project before the project even begins. Whether billing by the hour or with a fixed fee, it's a powerful way to predict profitability at the start of a project vs. scrambling to adjust your project budget later when many times it's too late.
Your team will love the simplicity of Harpoon's time-tracking system so much they'll actually use it. And as a business owner you'll love the financial insight of knowing the exact value,cost, and potential profit of every hour your team records in Harpoon. Time is money. You can finally take control of both.
It's time to put your billing on autopilot. With scheduling and automated sending of invoices, automated recurring invoices, and auto-billing of your clients' credit cards, prepare to have some extra time on your hands.
