The development of Lasius started in 2015. It is the exclusive time tracking tool of Tegonal, an experienced software development team based in Bern (Switzerland). We developed Lasius because there was no tool available in 2015 and, to be honest, because we just wanted to build something new and nice :-)
Our time tracker had to be based on open source components, meet our high privacy standards and be able to be hosted wherever we wanted. The feature set of Lasius has been continuously adapted to our needs in everyday project work. As is often the case with internal tools, we got the tool to the point where it was usable for us internally, with limitations that could be identified and transferred internally. For a long time, we didn't find the time to complete the tool to the point where we could release it alongside our day-to-day work for our customers. When a large customer project ended unexpectedly, we suddenly had a lot of time to work on internal projects. We seized the opportunity, rewrote the entire front-end code and released Lasius to the public.
We use Lasius every day. However, to call it perfect and ready to scale to hundreds of users would be an exaggeration. While we are confident that it meets the needs of mid-sized organisations and is stable enough to be used on a daily basis, maintaining and supporting it may be more than you want to deal with.
But fear not! We offer you to host and maintain your very own instance on the Cloud Service offered by infomaniak or any other provider of your choosing.
