About TiMa IO
The idea for TiMa IO was born in 2009 when Nicolas, our principal web developer, wanted to keep an eye on his working hours, but often forgot to update an Excel spreadsheet at the end of the day when he returned home. And so an online tool was born, allowing him to record his hours worked, available and up-to-date from any web browser. As well as hours worked, there was the functionality to add notes to a day's record about what he had done. Nicolas also created an extra tool to improve his organisation, which allowed him to manage his tasks and prioritise the most urgent ones.
Nicolas has always been passionate about the web however, as he was only working on the project in his free time, the site (then My Timecard, now TiMa IO) was at that time still very simple and unavailable to the public. Several years of daily use later, Nicolas had lots of ideas for improvement and began working on the tools of the site as well as adding new functionalities. His girlfriend (now wife!) had recently registered as self-employed in France (auto-entrepreneur) and the site was ideal for her to record her hours worked, which could then be imported in just a few clicks to an invoice generated by the application.
Since then, Nicolas has also set himself up as auto-entrepreneur, to dedicate himself to his passion: creating web solutions for use online under his business Sesame Web. After two or three redesigns, the application had a complete facelift in 2014 and its functionalities have been further improved, with certain reorganisations as part of a global overhaul. Following requests from friends and colleagues, TiMa IO has become a truly professional tool which is used by individuals and auto-entrepreneurs, as well as business, their employees and collaborators.
The TiMa IO site is now available to the public, and to improve it, we have put in place a flexible subscriptions system. The basic functions of the system are still free for all to use, while more advanced features for professional users are available with one of our subscription packages. Each package has been designed to remain affordable and appropriate for our different users.
We're very excited about this next stage of TiMa IO's story - so stay tuned as we continue to grow! Thank you for your continued support.
