nexQuent: Seamless time recording, time accounting and project controlling thanks to cloud-based software solution ZEP

The nexQuent Group consists of the companies nexQuent GmbH, nexQuent Consulting GmbH, nexQuent Services Ltd (NZ) and nexQuent Savento GmbH. The focus of the group of companies with its headquarters in Hamburg is on classic, industry-independent basic consulting and support (on site or remote) and the development of software tools for monitoring and supervision/control as well as accompanying processes and procedures (archiving and user lifecycle management). The core competences of the individual companies of the nexQuent Group are seamlessly intertwined. For time recording and accounting as well as project controlling, nexQuent uses the cloud solution ZEP.

Time tracking software tool: Introduction to setting up the consultancy firm

The introduction of ZEP took place with the founding of nexQuent Consulting GmbH in 2015. nexQuent Consulting GmbH is active in the classic consulting business, so it was clear from the beginning that a time recording solution was needed that would cover this business model as optimally as possible," Andrea Fiorentini recalls. Among other things, she is responsible for project controlling and accounting in the nexQuent Group. "The focus of the requirements profile for time recording was particularly on the possibility of mobile, location- and time-independent recording of project times by the consultants as well as meaningful reporting both internally and externally to the consulting clients."

After a corresponding market research and evaluation phase, nexQuent decided to use the cloud-based time recording and project controlling solution ZEP. ZEP stands for Time Recording for Projects. The web-based solution has been on the market since 2000 and was developed especially for project-oriented companies as a complete solution for the areas of time recording and verification, travel expenses, project management and controlling as well as invoicing.

ZEP has been in use at nexQuent since February 2016. In the meantime, almost 20 employees use the solution. They access the solution either via the web-based user interface or via the mobile apps for iOS or Android.
