Abacus

Abacus has been great for our small startup of 37 employees, it has grown with our team since we were very small. Since we have not experienced it as a bigger company, I am not sure what the scalability would be like. If you're looking for a site with a cleaner look that is easy to use, Abacus is it. I haven't had to reach out to customer service yet because I haven't had any issues. If that isn't proof positive of how easy it is to use, I don't know what is!

We are a service company and a lot of other software functions might be primarily for project bases clients or manufacturing companies. Our clients tracking do not end by project; they are ongoing

Cons

  • When you upload a receipt to abacus it would be great to port in the information from the receipt to the text fields.
  • It would be good to have a more automated way for Abacus to integrate in with other payroll systems.
  • It would be nice to have more levels of permissions, e.g. manager level, administer level and employee level.

  • Leave management ability can be improved to offer more functions and reporting.
  • Administration function of adding new clients can be difficult and time consuming.
  • Maybe at times too much customization. It is difficult to administrate all the activities and tasks if we have future changes.

All depending on cost for renewal. This is very expensive as a reporting tool, as we do not recover the cost through billing

Alternatives Considered

I used expensify in my last role, however it was at a bigger company so I was not involved in the process besides being a user. Abacus seems easier to use from a user perspective. It would be great to have a better integration with our payroll system, but it seems like with all softwares, you can't have it all

Journyx is easy to use - intuitive with customizable drop down menus and with multiple report options, useful for a variety of purposes.

Return on Investment

  • It does seem like they are still working out some kinks in the web and mobile apps – a few times the app has crashed. But they're also very fast to push updates.
  • The benefits are simple. No one likes taking time out of their day to do expense reporting. Abacus speeds that process up considerably. The interface is clean, and I'm able to see what expenses are pending vs. expenses that are already cleared.
  • The benefit from a user standpoint is that it adds an element of organization to a process that is typically disorganized. It has saved us numerous hours.

  • Its had a positive impact on our ability to easily and quickly produce customer reports.
  • One thing we'd like to see is the capability to directly connect to QuickBooks, the accounting software that we use. Right now, we have to use middleware provided by our payroll company.
