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.

SlickPie

In my opinion, SlickPie is best suited for small business owners and freelancers, especially service-based ones. If that's your case, then it's a no-brainer. However, if you are a bigger enterprise or if you are not a service-based business, then it might not be the best choice for you. Still, the software is free to use, so you might just give it a try anyway.

Pros

  • Daily notifications to the mail about upcoming tasks and expired, if any.
  • Preparation of financial reports and tasks for specific projects. You can form for individual tasks, employees and other criteria.
  • The availability of the gantt chart greatly simplifies the process of building the project, as it is an effective tool that helps to see the order of tasks to be performed.

  • Some more invoice templates would be nice.
  • Some more charts would be good too.

Alternatives Considered

Since we moved from fixed capacity project to T&M we need some tool who support our billing & invoicing.HP ALM did not provide good support for invoicing so we moved out from HP ALM to ActiveCollab.The features like Timer, reminders are not available in other project management tools like JIRA, Rally & ALM making AC the first choice since we have strict SLA's & AC helps in meeting that.

Before shifting to SlickPie I was using QBO, so I guess I'll list it as a competitor. However, since SlickPie offers me 80-90% of QBO's features for free I can't really say QBO is a relevant contender.

Return on Investment

  • We began to finish projects on time, which undoubtedly will influence the return of customers
Иван Шайхисламов profile photo
  • It saves me around $500 in accounting software subscription per year.
  • It saves me around 4-5 hours a week in manual data entry (thanks to MagicBot).
  • It reduced the average time customers take to pay for my invoices.
