Xi Software Inc., a U.S. Technologies, Inc. (OTC: USXX) associated company, announced recently the release of TimeAgent 2.0, a productivity software solution that automatically tracks, captures and records time spent using Microsoft Office applications.

Developed specifically for the legal, accounting and professional services industries, TimeAgent 2.0 allows users to more accurately account for and capture time spent working in Microsoft Office applications, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Outlook. TimeAgent's unique time-capture functionality automatically switches its internal timers on and off as professionals move between documents and applications-assuring that all potential billable time is captured and recorded, even time spent composing short e-mails or evaluating Web-based information. TimeAgent 2.0 can be purchased as a single user license or as a new Enterprise Edition that aggregates TimeAgent entries throughout the enterprise and allows for integration with billing and document management systems.

Unlike current time-tracking systems that require users to manually enter billable time directly into the software, TimeAgent 2.0 provides users with a complete history of activities for users to view and sort activities among billable parties. At day's end, users simply consult the TimeAgent ledger to view records, modify billing and drag-and-drop activities among billable parties. No more relying on notes or memory.

After documents and e-mails are sorted by client, matter or project the first time, the appropriate party is billed when subsequent editing is made. The end result is a more time-efficient billing process that can cut in half the time spent accounting for billable hours. In professional services firms, where time is money, the ability to manage and track all billable activities means more billable hours and greater profitability for a firm.

"TimeAgent 2.0 delivers the ability for any firm, from a single professional to a multi-national firm, to capture short activities, such as e-mail, that are often lost during the course of a busy day," says Thomas E. Hillman, President and CEO of Xi Software, Inc. "The result is greater billing accuracy and more billable hours as well as improved efficiency in managing the accounting for time throughout an enterprise," Hillman adds.

Xi Software designs, builds, and markets tools that enhance productivity. The company was founded in December 2001, to bring two lines of productivity software to the professional services industry: TimeAgent and DXI. Xi's technologies provide automated time tracking, real-time multi-author concurrent editing, and collaborative workflow features. Xi Software solutions allow both individuals and corporations to become more efficient, effective, and profitable.
