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.

UKG Dimensions

Dimensions offers a great UI, a multitude of integration features and improvements over the previous versions of the Kronos product. However, the transition from Kronos to UKG has been a bit challenging. In many instances, our organization is reiterating current architecture (which is hosted by UKG) to inform future business decisions. Similarly, there were a lot of unanticipated costs associated with the transition from Workforce Central (WFC) to Dimensions that were not disclosed. Hopefully, as the organization continues to mature, some of these kinks will be worked out. The initial challenge is duplicative efforts and meetings, and new statements of work that far exceed an initially agreed upon contract.

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.

UKG Dimensions

  • The training sessions provided in KMap should have more content to understand the concepts.
  • The Interface outputs summary section can be improved to allow a printable format.

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.

  • Kronos Workforce Dimensions a new product, and it has a lot of scope for improvement, with future releases. One of the best tools to perform time tracking.
  • Their support team is very knowledgeable, and their SLA's are pretty tight. Any query raised would be addressed in a few hours.
  • Timeclock configuration can be complicated; however, their support team knows the processes and guidelines.

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.

UKG Dimensions

It was sold as the new, improved, much more robust Workforce Central. We chose Dimensions because Adobe Flash will no longer be supported and we needed to find another solution. Since we were already using Kronos WFC and Workforce Telestaff, we had made some significant investments in the software and were satisfied enough with both products, we decided to migrate to Dimensions.

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.
