The CadTempo logging program automatically records the users time while drafting.

The CadTempo Logger automatically records the user time.

The CadTempo program resides on the local machine or the network server and is started when each user logs on to the computer you wish to monitor. The user does not need to remember to start the timer.



The CadTempo Log Viewer displays the collected drawing and user time.

The CadTempo Log Viewer displays the recorded drawing time values.

  • Instantly view the project time status.
  • Create Excel spreadsheets or text files.
  • Review employee or student performance.
  • Record exact amount of drawing edit and elapsed time.



Here's how CadTempo can help keep you and your team focused on work.

No forms or time sheets to fill out.

* Employees remain focused on their job, not documenting their time.
* No time cards to gather and formulate.
* Records the actual time spent throughout the day, not an estimation.
* CadTempo begins logging when a monitored program is launched and stops when the program is closed.

No timers required to be started or stopped.

* No software for logged employees to learn.
* CadTempo is completely automated, no user intervention is required.

No subscription fees, not a web application.

* Fixed cost based on the license quantity, no monthly charges.
* No internet security risk.



CadTempo can be used as a tool to establish benchmarks for improving efficiencies within your organization. After recording drawing time for a period, you can easily examine the document's time metrics and compare user performance. Some useful purposes of this process include:

  • Equipment Justification - Does a dual monitor setup or new equipment increase productivity? By how much?
  • Software Benefits - Is that new Batch Processor better than the current one? Does the third party application you are testing save the time it claims?
  • Measure Employee and Departmental Efficiencies - Which methods or procedures produce the most effective results?
  • Perform Accurate Project Completion Estimates - Let history help you make informed decisions about how long certain tasks should take, and who best to perfom them. Instantly see how much of your project budget has been consumed.
  • Project Management - Instantly see how much of your project budget has been consumed.
