For a team of remote working, this does identify different working methods and trends, especially when able to compare multiple users in a similar role it becomes extremely powerful to see where users can enhance performance and focus time/less time. This would be very difficult to establish even if the users are on-site with the manager. For more micro-management or specific scenarios, whereas, for a business, you need a close eye applying this as it is an extremely reliable and detailed tool that is such a good value for money.

Harvest

Harvest salt or immediate need for a replacement time tracking system that had become out of financial reach. It was a simple solution that everyone in our organization picked up really quickly. For myself at the administrative level, I have had no trouble adding clients, adjusting tasks, migrating tasks and running reports.I am unsure as to the best practices at this time for a particular clients that have very specific price rate associated to very specific roles, it will still list the roles that we do not want in the drop-down menu and I would really like to eliminate that. I do not want room for error or for any particular user to pick the wrong task. It still lists them as non-billable but there are no non-billable hours associated to that client, so we don’t need those at all on the drop down.

Harvest

  • Offers several options on using the tool, for example, you can use the app on your phone, the app for desktop, or simply have the website open.
  • The timer integrates with other platforms. For example, our team uses Asana as our project management tool. Now, in real-time, I can know which projects my team is working on and whether we're implementing good time management strategies to meet our goals.
  • The summary break downs are wonderful! You can view an individual's hours as well as project hours. There are even notifications you could receive when your team is getting close to reaching the allotted time for a client's project.

Cons

ActivTrak

  • It would be nice to have the ability to print the Live Productivity Report page.
  • If programs and websites could be classified based on an individual, it would be helpful. For example, we have an employee who works on her personal finances all day in addition to completing her online college classes. For these, she uses Excel and Word. While those two applications are classified as productive, in her instance, they are unproductive, so reports aren't accurate.

Harvest

  • Sometimes it can be difficult to find the item that you're looking for, as there are tabs for time, projects, team, reports etc. and it's not always clear where the item you're looking for will be housed.
  • It would be nice if things could be broken out more clearly by department, as sometimes the entire organization will be added to a new project when really only a couple of people should have.

We are in agreement that the tool is very handy as a security companion. The system collects and retain relevant historical data to be queried when you desire e.g. in security reviews once a week.

ActivTrak is a great product that just keeps growing. Having used it for quite some time, we have been able to see ActivTrak grow and evolve as a product. The ActivTrak webinars are also helpful to get to know and learn the product. ActivTrak really just works with little effort needed after the initial installation

Some reports are a little slow to load based on the size of record sets returned.

Support is always fast and the agents are ready at all times to help when an issue arises, if the tier 1 agent isn't able to provide a solution to the issue they're asked about they quickly escalate the issue to tier 2 or 3 to ensure that the appropriate support is given to the issue at hand to have it quickly solved. No issue we've had so far has taken more than two days to be solved.

I have not actually had any customer support issues as the product just works for me and I have not needed it. So using that as the basis of making my assessment on support I would reckon the team are pretty responsive and attentive to customer needs. I have only used the solution on Chrome and Android so have no idea what the experience is like on other browsers or phone operating systems.

IT was as easy as pushing the agent out to the machines that needed to be tracked.

Alternatives Considered

ActivTrak

ActivTrak is the first product I evaluated, and based on that evaluation, I chose it. I didn't feel the need to evaluate other products because it does exactly what I needed it to do, so I didn't feel the need to explore other options. Functionality and price point were both what I needed. Why go further?

Harvest

Harvest is significantly better than Jira. I think Jira's is not originally intended to be used as a time logging/management system, but we had been previously using it as that. It was much clunkier, and many employees had a difficult time using it as a user interface goes.Harvest is much more user friendly and has simplified the daily time-logging process for everyone in our office

Return on Investment

ActivTrak

  • We have had clients demonstrate that across the board, employees were more productive when working from home
  • Working from home is an important perk for employees
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by reducing rent and utility costs
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by hiring the best person for the job, even if they are out of your geographic region
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by hiring people in different time zones to work different times of day
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by hiring employees in areas where average pay is less than may exist in the employer's region, such as hiring a rural employee when the business is based in a big city

Harvest

  • Harvest has improved our payment schedules. Since we switched, we get paid for projects much sooner.
  • Harvest has saved us a ton of time with payroll. We are able to track our users time and pay them appropriately based on their billable hours.
  • Harvest is becoming a lifesaver around tax time. The reporting features have allowed us to pull reports for our tax accountant.
