ActiveCollab

Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy.2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
it retains what you wrote.4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page.5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etcScenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that.2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing3) It did not work well for larger teams4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

Chrome River INVOICE

  • Easy to use with little to no navigational training needed for most users.
  • Being able to add our own compliance rules eliminates the back and forth between creator and approver.
  • Invoices can be created, approved, and paid within hours.
    • Normally, our processing time is two or three days. Before Emburse Chrome River Invoice, it was up to two weeks.
  • Easily upload receipts/invoices into the system using email or the application SNAP. No need to have a scanner.

Pros

ActiveCollab

  • Great for project and task assignments, project workflow and communications.
  • Solid web-based platform that doesn't require software downloads, also includes great mobile platform.
  • Great reporting tools for managing billing, estimating, project workflow and other essential project details.
  • Allows for both the agency and its clients to interact on a single platform using role-specific permissions.

Chrome River INVOICE

  • Look for duplicate invoice numbers
  • Export into the current ERP system to initiate the check
  • Create an error report to view if the address is not correct in the system

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • Individual comments cannot be linked to. This makes it more difficult to reference a comment or question.
  • Unnecessary features cannot be turned off. Since we use it primarily for communication, it would be ideal to turn off tasks etc. that are not needed or be able to move discussions as the first screen.
  • There isn't an easy way to set up different projects under the same client.

The support team is responsive to requests and their annual support fees are reasonable. Honestly, we don't have to contact them much. Updates happen automatically and the platform is very solid and does not require a lot of support. Documentation is good and the platform is easy to learn.

I have used multiple project management platforms such as ActiveCollab, JIRA, Trello, etc. Trello has great visualization with their (Kanban Board) board system and support drag and drop functionality for managing tasks. ActiveCollab, however, does not have the fancy visualization, but is very powerful when it comes to ticketing, task management, task delegation, time tracking, etc.

We were previously using paper check requests or Jaeger for invoicing payments. We do still use them for anything other than travel. However, all travel-related items are processed through Emburse Chrome River Invoice--we are hopeful that in the future we will navigate to processing all payments in Emburse Chrome River.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • It has saved us a TON of money (literally thousands) in project management software.
  • It has helped us gain clients because we can show them the template of what they will see and give them access to it. When others don't have software that does this.
  • Positive impact on ROI based on the time it's saving compared to our previous PM software.

  • No more staff walking documents through approvals
  • No more scanning
  • No more file storage needed
  • No more multiple copies of the same information in several departments
