What is nettechsys?

nettechsys logo

nettechsys is a time-tracking app with a long history. Its first version was released 2006. Why do we mention that? Because we have seen so many services come and go in the last decade - trust us when we say: we’ll stick around. We never made a living from nettechsys, it’s the fun that keeps us motivated to improve nettechsys. We believe that’s one of the main reasons for nettechsys’s success.

We build nettechsys for one purpose: tracking your working hours. nettechsys supports an unlimited amount of users and timesheet entries, so you can handle all of your teams/departments in one easy-to-use installation. nettechsys is web-based, so all you need is a . enabled webserver. It’s built with a responsive design, so you can even track times using your mobile device while you are on the go. nettechsys is translated into multiple languages and missing translations can be added easily, using the open translation standard Xliff.

Oh, and did we mention that you can create invoices from your timesheets within your browser? It has not only customizable invoice templates, nettechsys can easily be extended in various ways. It’s build on the most popular and modern frameworks and has several extension points for your developers.

Now, we could write so much more about its features and the benefits it will bring to you - whether you are a freelancer, a small organization or a company with hundreds of employees - but we think, that giving you the option to test it directly is even better than a thousand words from us: So be our guest and test nettechsys online with our demo installation. If you are a friend of hard facts, we also have a compiled feature list.

Who is nettechsys?

There is a great and large community around nettechsys and listing everyone is impossible. You find a brief list of former developers below. The marketplace shows a list of plugins and their developers, this will give you a good idea of the developers supporting the project with their knowledge.

The main person behind nettechsys 2, this website, the demo installations and some plugins is:

Project maintainer and core developer since 2009. Fully focussed on making nettechsys v2 a success. Can be hired for support, installations and custom plugin development.

History of nettechsys

nettechsys has a long history and was way ahead of its time, when the team around Torsten Höltge started its development in 2006. It had a responsive design (thanks to a lot of javascript magic) back in the time when that word wasn’t even officially invented.

In the meantime the . community made great steps forward and nettechsys felt back, due to its technical history - built around a lot of single . scripts which all had to be public accessible. It had also some major drawbacks, like limited capabilities of extending it and a problematic database design. After many years of development, the code base became hard to maintain and the logic was wildly spread among scripts, classes and the frontend layer.

That’s why the idea of rewriting nettechsys with modern frameworks was there for a very long time, also driven by community requests, but we simply had no time to push these ideas forward. In the end of 2017 Symfony 4.0 was released along with a neat frontend built stack. That’s when Kevin took the opportunity and started the development of the next evolutional step: nettechsys v2 reloaded was born.

The original nettechsys is more than 13 years old and is used by people all around the world. We are proud of that and about its great community. That’s why we would like to thank each and everyone who contributed to nettechsys.
