Jim McGinnis, who left his role as vice president of product management at Intuit earlier this year, has agreed to serve as a strategic adviser for the accountant team at time tracking app provider TSheets.

McGinnis’ role will be to encourage accounting professionals to implement TSheets’ time tracking software by educating them on the app.

“In my experience, many accountants avoid payroll because it’s such a time suck,” McGinnis said in a statement. “I am very excited to help introduce TSheets to even more accounting professionals because automating the employee time tracking process saves accountants time when it comes to helping their clients with payroll. Whether accountants show their clients how to run payroll in 15 minutes or they do the work themselves, it saves countless hours of tedium, manual entry. TSheets has proven to be an invaluable resource.”

McGinnis will not be an on-the-books employee at TSheets; his role as adviser will last for the “next few months,” according to Medel, starting in time for the company’s “summer of love” initiative, a promotion campaign for the software.
