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.

Zoho Invoice

Very useful for startups and lean small businesses to quickly get payments and verify a business idea. However, once you scale, it might be better to get a different platform with advanced reporting features.

Cons

  • It is confusing when a review is made, before buying the product.
  • It lacks animation and pleasant forms for the user.
  • Does not allow effective communication when activities are reported. Since it does not provide a direct message chat.
  • The reports that are generated are basic, they do not have personalization characteristics.

  • Quoting is somewhat limited in functionality (for example, volume discounts by customer cannot be added but rather an entire duplicate price list has to be created).
  • Seamless integration with accounting software does not exist (we have yet to figure out how to get information into our accounting package efficiently).
  • Credit card information cannot be saved by clients.
  • Cannot connect Zoho Invoice to more than one merchant account (reducing capabilities of foreign currency transactions).

Alternatives Considered

Certainly, each of them has a particular advantage, which in the end makes it unique. ActiveCollab also belongs to a group of platforms created to be represented in particular, its way of project management is superior to JIRA or Trello. With this software, the work is more controlled and organized.

Method:CRM was a disaster. We spent several weeks trying to set up Method:CRM and promises about connecting to a merchant account simply did not exist. Zoho was up and running in one day. We reviewed around 15 different options and Zoho was the best/most suitable for us
