    Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well 1) 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 etc Scenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well 1) 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 invoicing 3) It did not work well for larger teams 4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

    iSolved is well-suited for the accurate and timely processing of payroll, extensive use of reports and reporting features, and a dedicated customer service support representative who gets to know you and the needs of your company and payroll processing needs. iSolved is less appropriate if you are looking for a payroll company that can just simply process payroll if customer service is not a number one priority, and if you only need the basic reports (payroll summary and payroll register would be sufficient for your needs).

    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.

    • Flexibility. Schedule templates can be created at departmental level and managers can be made responsible for maintaining schedules rather than HR. Time entries can be edited on multiple levels (punches or total hours worked). New security groups can be easily added anytime.
    • Reporting Power. TimeForce provides a significant number of standard reports for HR, manager and audit purposes.
    • Import Utility. It is very easy to update the system with new employment-related data through by importing .csv documents through TF Import Utility.

    Cons

    ActiveCollab

    • Does not maintain default categories for tasks
    • Makes information difficult to share with others not on AC
    • Relies on other people to track their time correctly in categories for estimates
    • Mobile app is very hard to use and not user-friendly if you are working with multiple projects

    • More reminder notifications would be great!
    • A way to email hiring managers and our IT department at the same time with a template would save us from so much email communication
    • Transfer all attached documents such as interview notes from iHired applicants to isolved employee documents would save us time uploading into multiple places

    I don't have a decision in whether to renew the license or not, however if I did I would strongly recommend renewing the license, unless there were a system that would sync up with our payroll program, then I would lean more to the other program simply from a biased standpoint of it being easier for my position.

    I have found as the administrator it is very cumbersome for most individuals to use and it is not very intuitive. An individual that is not technologically advanced will have difficulty using as well as those that are lazy and just do not want to learn to do it. The manuals they give you are not helpful for the web-based program. I had to create my own with pictures for most individuals to understand the system.

    We have not required support for ActiveCollab as it works pretty seamlessly. We didn't have any issues with using the platform or with any billing issues. The self-service aspect of the platform is robust and easy to navigate so we have not encountered any errors that required assistance from the support team.

    We recently canceled our contract with Isolved and moved to Paychex. One thing to consider is that if you leave isolved all access to your data ends 30 days after termination of the contract. Not a big deal for me since I have the reports and data I need, but it is also terminated for your employees to access pay stubs or old w2s. If you want to keep access it is $250 per month. It seems strange that they can hold your data hostage and they wouldn't just allow employees to have access to their pay stubs and other information they may need months after a change in payroll companies.

    The system was very cumbersome setting up as well as time consuming. There were times I just wanted to walk away and sometimes I did have to get up and walk away for a break and come back with a fresh perspective. The setup took me over a period of two to three months getting it to serve the purposes that we needed it two. I am very intuitive when it comes to computer software however getting all the right buttons checked in order for it to do what I needed didn't always work.

    Alternatives Considered

    ActiveCollab

    ActiveCollab is easier to use and simpler in its setup. It has the right mix of features and simplicity. It's also project-oriented which is important for our workflow. Other tools are often too task-oriented, making it hard to track projects. Overall, ActiveCollab has a great mix of simplicity with good features.

    I went with iSolved because the people I spoke with were all quick to answer and very thorough in their responses. I knew they could help me build my setup the way I wanted it, and not just force me to work within some pre-set parameters once I had signed the contract.

    • Allows our team to stay organized and keep conversations on tasks.
    • The To-Do List email every morning helps me mentally prepare and know exactly what I should be doing as soon as I start work.
    • Powerful and useful integrations save lots of time (Google Drive, Slack, Dropbox, Zapier and more!).

    • When we had Paycom, we had 1/4 of our staff that were not logging in and using the system. That number is down to maybe 5% now
    • Employees love having the ability to easily view and verify their timecards prior to payroll submission.
