We’re rebranding: Freckle Time Tracking is now Noko!

Bethany AndrewBethany Andrew

We first launched in December, 2008. Ten years ago! Can you believe it?!

Back then, we had a completely different design, and only two real features: manual time entry, and the most basic of reports. We had no timer. We had no invoicing. No budgets. No Pulse.

Heck, we didn’t even have a password reset function… you had to email us to manually request it.

We’ve grown a lot over the last decade, and so many of those great additions to our time tracking software came from talking with our customers.

This winter, as the clock rang out our 10th birthday, we felt that it was a perfect time to look back, reflect… and also to look forward.

We’ve been doing a
lot of looking forward.

And we’ve mapped out a
lot of improvements.

 

It all starts with a fresh new name: Noko.

Noko is shorter. Lighter. Easier to Google. Easier to say. And we were able to get a great new domain name, nokotime.com.

(No longer will you have to ask yourself,“Whatword comes before the actual app name…? Get? Use? Track? What?!”)

Our new name becomes final on March 31st, 2019!

But we’re not stopping there.

 

Noko will be getting some powerful new features.

As a designer, I know an app is so much more than the sum of its parts. The value of software is in what it empowers you to do.


That’s why my first goal has always been to
get out of your way— to make tracking your time so painless, so frictionless, that you & your team will actually do it.


That’s also why my
next-level goalis to help you squeeze as much power, insight, and profit out of your time data as possible.


Can a time
trackingtool actually help you get more work done, more efficiently? Can it help you identify projects with big wins versus projects that drag on forever for little result? Can it help you spot areas for improvement, or outsourcing?

I believe it can!

Here’s how…

 

  1. Goals

It’s like our Pulse meets Don’t Break the Chain. Want to do at least 3 hours a week on sales prospecting? Or no morethan30 minutes of email a day?

Noko will help you track your real-world progress against your goals… and see how you improve over time.

 

  1. Tracking

You’ve told us that you love the timer, but wish it were more granular… so you could start and stop a task, rather than a project as a whole. Then you could see how a given task is spread out over the hours and days and weeks of a project… as well as being able to create more informative invoices, estimates, and internal reports. Noko is going to make this possible.

 

  1. Customizable reminders 

These timely ticklers will help ensure you & everyone on your team gets those hours in.

 

  1. Webhooks and new integrations

We hear you: You want to be able to track your time in Noko whereveryou’re currently working. We’re working on a list of new integration targets.

 

  1. Bulk edit and auditing functions 

The more data you have, the more power you need to get exactlywhat you want from it. These new features will give you that power.

 

We’re so excited to make Noko an even better partner in your success. 

And we’d love to hear from you!


If you have any questions at all about our roadmap or rebrand, don’t hesitate to

Here’s to the next decade!
