How companies use Windu for R&D

One of the biggest components with filing the federal benefit, R & D is making sure you are outlining your qualified R&D activities. In order to do something like this companies must lean to applications that help keep track of project activity.

Windu to the rescue

Tracking time related to R&D activities is super easy with Windu. Windu is designed from the core to track activities related to a given project. These projects can be for internal use or for a client. A very popular industry that utilizes this tax benefit is the software development industry. Companies who file can benefit from the credit, allowing them to spend more money elsewhere.

You are in good company

If you are a software development company or have your own software based product, you are in good company with Windu. Windu is designed specifically to adapt to companies who design and develop software. Windu currently has integrations with some of the most common/popular tools software companies use to manage tasks.
