BigTime Software, Inc., a leading provider of pro-level online time and billing tools and a market leader in QuickBooks integration, developed its new mobile app to make it possible for small-and mid-sized professional services firms in the accounting, engineering, architecture and IT services industries to go beyond basic time and expense tracking to access higher-level, sophisticated practice management capabilities previously unavailable on a mobile device.

BigTime Mobile was recently named a “2014 Awesome Application” at the 10th Annual Accounting Solutions Conference by The Sleeter Group, a consulting group dedicated to finding the best accounting technology solutions to help small businesses work smarter, faster and more efficiently.

“BigTime has long been synonymous with pro-level time and billing capabilities among users in the professional services arena, so we wanted BigTime Mobile to represent the next generation of mobile apps for this more sophisticated user,” says Saunders, founder of BigTime. “When you look at the time tracking apps currently available, BigTime Mobile is light years ahead — offering users ‘practice management lite’ in the palm of their hands. It’s the kind of convenient, yet powerful, tool professional services users want in an increasingly mobile world.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.
