Can I also bill services based on time with Billomat?
Yes, thanks to our interfaces with clockodo and mite, this is possible without any problems.
Clockodo is a web-based time tracking tool that allows you to bill services by time. You have the possibility to generate an invoice based on the time registered in clockodo. All you need for this, is your API key.

On their website you will find an icon that symbolises a person on the upper right side of the page. By clicking on it, you will get to the company's settings. In this area, you can connect Billomat with clockodo. To do this, you simply need to enter your saved API key and your Billomat ID. Once you have recorded time with clockodo, you will see a report, under which a link with the title „Create invoice“ is displayed. In the window that opens subsequently, you can select the corresponding Billomat customer and proceed to further settings. When you create the invoice, it will be saved as a draft in Billomat, so that you can still make adjustments to it.
Clockodo usually is not free of charge. However, if you use the programme in combination with Billomat, clockodo offers you three months for free.
Bill services based on time with mite
The web-based time tracking tool by mite allows you to track time in general, or working time, to evaluate it and to transfer it to a Billomat invoice. First, you need to sign up to mite. In order to transfer the time from mite to Billomat, both programmes need to be connected. You can do this also via the API key, which you can see in your mite account by clicking on your username on the upper right side. You need to enter this key along with the mite subdomain in your Billomat account under Settings > Add-ons > mite Time Tracking – and both programmes are connected from now on.
Now, you will find a link with the title "new item from mite time-tracking“ under the items in every invoice that you create with Billomat. By clicking on this link, Billomat directly inserts into the invoice the data lodged in mite.
