Everyone I know in production hates daily time sheets. Crew members loathe filling them out and ADs get overwhelmed with tracking them down and deciphering the bad hand-writing.
A new web-based app called Wrap Time has a solution to the out-time process with a digital approach.
7 reasons to consider Wrap Time on your next production:
1. 100% digital. You will be saving trees, toner and hours of man-power spent waiting around for out-sheets.
2. Raw data. An excel file is generated with the entire crews’ out-times that can be copy and pasted into any PR template. You can even automate the process with formulas so that your PR auto-populates.
3. It’s Fast. Crew Members will be able to submit their info in a matter of seconds once wrap is called.
4. Crew List. Besides collecting out-times there is a built-in updated crew list so that you have cells at your finger tips.
5. Time Card Accuracy. Crew Members will be able to review their times for each week so they have a central place to reference for when creating their own time card. You won’t have to print out PRs and pass them around….
6. Multiple Users. In addition to the AD staff using the console, Accountants and UPM/Line Producers can gain access so they can see what is happening real-time.
7. Easy to Use. Once the system is setup and key crew members are trained how to use it…updating a PR will be a piece of cake.
