Elite.com has announced two new features available for its Timesolv Web-based time and expense tracking and invoicing service.
* WebBill allows professional service firms to send invoices through Elite.com's secure billing portal, the company says. Timesolv users generate invoices as usual. Clients who wish to receive the bills via WebBill receive an automated e-mail message, with a link to a specific URL, which is a secure Web page that displays the final invoice and allows clients to arrange payments. Both current and archived invoices can be viewed, as well as sorted for analysis, says Elite.
* Elite, as the result of an alliance with Wireless Verticals, has added Wireless service to its Timesolv software, enabling users to access the service on handheld computers and pagers from Palm Computing, Handspring (Visor) and Research in Motion (Blackberry), and Inter@active, says Elite. Users need only download MobileTimeBilling software, and then can capture expenses and track time using the same projects, clients, task and expense codes as defined in the Timesolv program, reports Elite. They can then e-mail data back to their Timesolv account, where it can be merged with the rest of their data.
