Digitalization is nowadays a basic prerequisite for any company that wants to assert itself on the market. The fact that digital technologies are now a must for the big players as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, definitely changed customers’ and other stakeholders’ expectations on businesses. Such companies that aim to stay in business long-term have to meet these new expectations and demands – by means of digital strategies and digital products. Analogue structures will still exist in the future, yet not in every industry and area of life. This concerns areas like time-tracking and payroll accounting, too. Until now, these required filling out time sheets manually, being signed by the project’s supervisor, as well as many further interim stages involving the employer and their client. Such a process for payroll accounting, expense and time tracking costs time, money and nerves. The new Zytrack app and software provides a comprehensive solution, being a modern time tracking system for Switzerland. The latter has successfully been conceptualized and realized by Dinnova – see for yourself: zytrack.ch.

Brief Profile: Zytrack AG
Headquarter: Herisau, Switzerland
Line of Business: Digital time tracking
Zytrack provides an innovative solution for time tracking in Switzerland – in order to successfully manage working hours, expenses, payroll accounting and deductibles. Thanks to the application and software any and all data are being processed in real time, which is why time sheets on paper are a thing of the past.
Timely And Content-Related Planning
In a first step, our team of professional developers and designers defined the project’s main goals. These included the strategy and conception of Zytrack SaaS (Software as a Service) as well as the sales funnel, logo design and the development of the Zytrack app and software.
In the course of the entire project, we put great stress on customer proximity. This way, we make sure to involve them in the whole process, provide information continuously and to create interim and final project results that satisfy their needs and expectations 100%.
Project schedule: our team took over the entire project including the application, website and software development, logo and sales funnel design, as well as the innovative solution’s marketing. We assigned tasks according to our team’s qualifications and capacity in order to meet the project deadline. By means of regular team meetings and meetings with the client, we ensured the immediate implementation of their feedback and wishes that arose in the process.
Idea generation & design: as with many other projects, too, our designers created a style guide introducing fonts, icons and further elements. Yet, they primarily stuck to the application’s and the software’s layout when designing the website concept, in order to keep up a consistent look. The website’s content is based on the sales funnel layout, which has been created by our inhouse content specialists. We complemented them with app screen images to illustrate the Zytrack app’s functionalities and structure. Furthermore, our designers have integrated icons, buttons, accordions and lists to create a well-structured and dynamic online presence. Just like the website, the Zytrack app and software have a clean design, their navigation is intuitive and easy to use. Important areas like ‘working hours’, ‘break time’, ‘project’ etc. are being highlighted by color-coded bars, whilst light grey words accentuate the input fields. Also, we did integrate corresponding icons to start and stop time tracking.
Functions: the Zytrack app and software enables employees to track their break time, absences and working hours as well as vacation exact to the minute. The employer and their clients can review them immediately, since the innovative time tracking system synchronizes any and all data. With that, the system creates correct project reports, invoices and pay slips – without the need to manually enter them. This results not only in optimized work processes, but also saves everybody’s time. Mistakes that arose from manually entering data are now a thing of the past – thanks to Zytrack.
Challenges: from a design perspective, the biggest challenge was accentuating central elements like CTA-buttons (Call-to-Action). This applies to the website in particular, since the product requires in-depth explanations and further information, and the website thus contains a lot of content. Therefore, our designers developed CTA-buttons in bright orange: thanks to this sophisticated choice of color, the website elements received the attention they deserve, and enabled potential clients to get a free test version of the time tracking app.
Following this, our programmers and designers developed a site for different subscription plans that introduced them and that enabled their configuration. We have met the listed challenges successfully – in spite of the immense development efforts that the Zytrack app, software and website required. The result is more than satisfactory – and will give your company a decisive edge over your competitors who still stick to the paper routine and might even enter incorrect data now and then. The Zytrack time tracking system on the other hand:
- enables paper-free time tracking and automatic payroll accounting
- is transparent
- creates reports that are exact to the minute
- includes a reminder
- provides a chat function
- is available for iOS und Android
- can be tailored to your needs and requirements.
