The simple answer is no. WebTRIM is a modern, cross-platform system that will on any device from the smart phone in your pocket to dedicated large touchscreens.

WebTRIM Touch can operate on any device/s from a PC (with a mouse) to devices as small as smartwatches that can download apps. The vast majority of businesses utilise tablets for they’re ideal screen size, portability and cost-effectiveness.

Screen resolution & ratio does not matter these days so if you prefer a smaller screen or if you prefer Apple’s IOS over Android, or any other combination won’t affect the use of WebTRIM Touch.
WebTRIM sizes jobs and job tasks based both on the monetary value of the job and associated tasks, as well as the workers and expectations your business places on them as teams and individually. By default, if a “Strip” task is worth $100 and upon scheduling it allows 35 minutes to one worker and 50 minutes to another. This is not a mistake and is most likely due to the second worker (with less time allowed) being on a higher wage and therefore having a higher level of expectation on his/her productivity per productive hour.
To evaluate and modify employee targets and goals, this can be done from the settings menu under employee configuration.
