    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.

    With Paycor it is very easy to process payroll (according to my payroll manager) lots of fields for data and customization the EDI department is really helpful and friendly reporting is easy to figure out and customizing reports is great we run 12 payrolls and transfer employees between payrolls is challenging and a lot of manual work (doesn't bring over deductions, etc.) ACA reporting is easy geofencing was great but now I believe we have to manually turn it on by employee sometimes I've waited over an hour for someone to answer the support calls.

    Paycor, Inc

    • Having all employee information in one place is one of the best things about Paycor.
    • When we have new documentation, we can easily have all employees sign to confirm they read and accept the changes made with a few simple uploads and clicks.
    • It has made our employee onboarding experience much more streamlined and efficient.

    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

    Paycor, Inc

    • Increase the frequency with which our representative contacts us. Paycor moves at such a fast pace that our representative is always changing
    • After the first year, I think you should have a team meeting to go over how things are set up and make any necessary changes

      The product is really good overall. The customer service is not the best and the benefits administration is kind of painful. However, the good outweighs the bad. We might get a different benefit admin system that can be integrated into Paycor. My controller doesn't want to switch anything for a [long] time.

      in time how much it has improved my performance and my co-worker's performance. Paycor has been a great aid for a project that just started; while I didn't use the full spectrum of tools that the software offers, I am one
      hundred percent sure that it will make a positive change in any task force.

      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.

      I'd give a zero if that were an option. I currently have multiple requests for support that have not been answered in over a week. I have called their support phone line and usually hung up after waiting for 45 minutes for someone to answer. It is unlikely to get a quick response, EVER, even to urgent problems that effect taxes and benefit submission.

      Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

      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.

      We selected Paycor b/c we were looking for a more streamlined onboarding interface, a better self-service portal, an easier phone app, and we also track extensive payroll details in our GL. On all of these points, we've been disappointed with Paycor's performance (especially as compared to their promises during the sales process).

      Return on Investment

      ActiveCollab

      • 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!).

      Paycor, Inc

      • They handle all of the numbers and tax forms, things that I HATE doing!
      • I can run my payroll in less than 5 minutes because their portal puts all of the information at my fingertips.
      • I like relying on their professionals to deal with different tax and unemployment offices in different states. They know their stuff.
      • Paycor is not the cheapest service out there, but they deliver Cadillac service and performance on a Volkswagen budget.
