Changepoint

Changepoint is basic and would, therefore, work for businesses with uncomplicated requests, pretty straightforward workflows and willingness to work with an unsightly solution. It is basic, from the UI to the search option and the way the information is captured, which can be frustrating and counter-intuitive at times.It is relatively robust (i.e. I have been using it for almost 2 years and have not seen it crash once) but it does log me out when the system has been inactive for about 30 minutes - and I am only notified about being logged out upon clicking the Submit button, meaning many a line of text have been typed more than once!

Pros

  • Time tracking because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

Cons

  • I would like to see more of a scheduling component, to manage projects across our project team.
  • I would like to receive a notification if a project is going over budget.
  • I have to remember to double click to clear a contact, or the contact will be overridden.

  • In general, I've found the product to be very slow. Our company has done everything possible with connections and server space to accommodate. However, the product takes about 5 seconds to save a screen. It takes about 7 seconds to open up a worksheet. It takes about 5 seconds to initialize a change on a worksheet. All those seconds really add up, especially when you know exactly what you need changed and you're just waiting on the system to process. This slowness has been apparent and cumbersome from the start and will continue to be a major disappointment.
  • Entering expenses (travel expenses, reimbursements) in the system is okay. It's not incredibly user-friendly, but it's doable. However, the part that is not intuitive is when you have a rejected expense, or when an expense is waiting for approval, or when you need to redo an expense -- it's pretty much a free-for-all with how you need to handle those. There's not a good flow or step by step process for expenses that are rejected, approved, in limbo, or entered-expenses ready to be turned into an expense report. This is frustrating.
  • I use PSA for Project Management tracking. I think Changepoint PSA is a huge system that can encompass a lot as far as wearing many hats for a company's business needs. However, it's not a good solution for either task management or Project Management. It does not track tasks intuitively nor does it make my Project Management any faster. Also, is a lot of tracking in my PM world where I need to enter notes on reports or update the status with a notation -- that cannot be done in PSA (at least with how we have it setup right now). I work very quickly, with many small ever-changing tasks, through my projects and being consistently slowed down by entering data or waiting on data to change is a major sore spot.

I do not manage the decision to renew Changepoint -- I must keep using it and it's already so integrated with our other departments and corporate Accounting, I doubt we will ever get rid of it. However, if it was my decision, I would have a specific software made for internal task management and a specific software designed for Project Management. Changepoint tries to encompass both of those, but you can tell it's not made for either of them.

Alternatives Considered

I love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

Financial Force - in 2016, was not suitable for our business. Open Air - in 2016, was not mobile and had not been managed well after the acquisition.
