It has been designed for professions that commonly bill by the hour, such as programmers, designers, translators and lawyers. [1] It allows the creation of reports, bills and calculation of hourly rates. [2]

primaERP contains three modules: Time Tracking, Billing and Attendance. The application generates data, that can determine the efficiency of the use of time and keep track of its non-productive parcel. The different types of reports and graphs enable one to follow up on productivity with the possibility to filter the information to be displayed. It is supposed to be used as a tool for time management.

Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity. It involves a juggling act of various demands upon a person relating to work, social life, family, hobbies, personal interests and commitments with the finiteness of time. Using time effectively gives the person "choice" on spending/managing activities at their own time and expediency.

The program supports teamwork, being able to host multiple users in one account. Thus, it can be used by project managers as an instrument to control tasks performed by employees. [3] The app is free and has no limitations in functionality for teams of up to three persons. [4]

It supports data import from Microsoft Outlook, iCal, Basecamp Classic and Google Calendar. [5] and can be connected to other programs through its API.

A timesheet is a method for recording the amount of a worker's time spent on each job. Traditionally a sheet of paper with the data arranged in tabular format, a timesheet is now often a digital document or spreadsheet. The time cards stamped by time clocks can serve as a timesheet or provide the data to fill one. These, too, are now often digital. Timesheets came into use in the 19th century as time books.

Time and attendance systems (TNA) are used to track and monitor when employees start and stop work. A time and attendance system enables an employer to monitor their employees working hours and late arrivals, early departures, time taken on breaks and absenteeism. It also helps to control labor costs by reducing over-payments, which are often caused by paying employees for time that are not working, and eliminates transcription error, interpretation error and intentional error. TNA systems can also be used to ensure compliance with labor regulations regarding proof of attendance.
