    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.

    QuickBooks Online Advanced

    QuickBooks Online is well suited for businesses of all sizes, from sole proprietors to mega-corporations. User-defined roles ensure that a person can only see what they need to see, without having access to some of the more confidential info that management may not want the user to have. It can be tailored to fit any type of business, with a little patience.

    • 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.
    Jorden Beatty | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Online Advanced

    • Rule-driven categorization of expense transactions.
    • Good reporting for P&L, Balance Sheet, Profit by Job.
    • Ability to handle multiple locations under the same tax ID.
    • A commonly used program, such that it is reasonably easy to hire or contract people who are familiar with the system.

    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
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Online Advanced

    • Possibility to create a template for electronic signatures on checks
    • A new template that can allow the upload of general journal entries
    • A better way to review custom reports in lieu of scrolling down; is possible creating a new dashboard that will allow a dropdown.

    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.

    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.
    Mike Muller | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Online Advanced

    We looked at other products but honestly from an ease of use and price point, we focused on QuickBooks Online Advanced from the beginning and are happy with that decision. We have several trusted partners that use some form of QB, and their input was invaluable when making the decision to finally migrate over.

    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!).
    Ali Zakeri | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Online Advanced

    • I know where are bank accounts stand all in one place.
    • I know who has paid me, who has yet to pay me, and the amount of invoices outstanding and how much I can expect to earn in a month.
    • Quickbooks keeps me organized in every aspect of the business.
