One business, multiple companies

The Professional and Enterprise Editions of the TimePilot software allow a user to create more than one company. If you’ve got just one business, why on earth would you need more than one company?

Oh, no! Do you have to climb down into the sewer to retrieve the USB drive so the transactions aren’t lost forever?

Nope. Both Vetro and Extreme remember the last 12,000 clock-ins and clock-outs. All you have to do is contact our Tech Support Specialists (Support@TimePilot.com or 630-879-6400) and they’ll help you retrieve your transactions.

Unless you’re more adventurous than we are, though, you’ll need a new USB drive. We sell them at our web site, or if you want to use your own drive, there are instructions on how prepare it for use with TimePilot in our September 2011 newsletter.
