AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Paymo

Well suited: tracking time, making notes to share with clients, live reporting. Less so: tracking and bookkeeping - they don't market it as a bookkeeping app, though they do allow for invoicing through it. Still, my needs are such that I use a separate app for tracking receipts against a project and then invoicing clients.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

  • Project list personalizing. Paymo is primarily meant for freelancers, so the only way to see how much time you've spent on a job since last recording time is to navigate through a few pages to hunt down the number. It would be easier if we could personalize the list to just show that number in the main list.
  • Not intuitive. It takes a lot of set up on the front end to get jobs where you want them to be, and some features are not where you'd think they would be to get the jobs set up to track time.
  • Huge learning curve. I've already heard a couple of my teammates look for alternatives because there was too much of a learning curve for them.

No competition.. Paymo was by far the best software for our needs.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.

  • Gives me more accurate time that I've spent on projects compared to older methods I've used.
  • Has data that I can pull together, for example my boss wanted to know the percentage of time I'd spent working on projects for one client compared to everything else - I was able to give them an accurate percentage.
  • Forces you to stay on top of jobs, which can lengthen the time to complete something
