At the end of each month, or other reporting period, these comments are collated and edited into a paragraph or two. When all such paragraphs from all of the staff are collated, they produce a detailed report of the work undertaken in the reporting period. This produces a printed report describing all work undertaken on a project-by-project basis for the customers. The system can optionally produce an invoice for the time taken multiplied by the hourly rates of the individual staff members.
The system also collates total hours and attendance hours, which is exported to the personnel system and the billing system.
