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.

TimeClock Plus

TimeClock Plus is very user friendly. With a little training, it is easy to master. It is great for keeping accurate time keeping. You can also accrue employee vacation and sick time here if needed. I believe it would be an asset to any size company. I consider the uniqueness of each employee having to clock in and out for themselves is a necessity for any company in keeping accurate records.

Pros

  • 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.

TimeClock Plus

  • Allows customized schedules for auto populating timesheets.

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.

TimeClock Plus

  • The system would go down periodically and we would have to correct everyones' time.
  • Reporting was not intuitive.
  • The system was archaic at the time that we were using it. I know that they've done updates since then, however.

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 no experience with support for TimeClock Plus. Have had no need of support, which I think is a very good thing.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

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.

TimeClock Plus

We chose TimeClock Plus for the lower initial investment. Licensing for Wasp was more costly, and we didn't have to purchase physical time clocks like we would have with Wasp time and avoided running network cable to support the new infrastructure. The TimeClock Plus console had a better look and feel than the Wasp Time software.

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.

TimeClock Plus

  • It has reduced the time to gather hours worked and submit to payroll.
  • It is easier for the employees to edit scheduled hours for time off.
