FinancialForce PSA

PSA is great at capturing all the data you would need to accurately track and report on consulting projects. It captures project financials, calculates projected GM%, and (among others) allows for hourly tracking of employees, which breaks it up between billable and non-billable for utilization tracking to accurately understand costs. However, the user interface is tough to learn, and the stability of the data reporting functions is questionable. This tool would be great for smaller consulting shops that fit the standard contracting mold. If your business is fairly straightforward without a lot of shades of gray, you shouldn't have much trouble with the tool. However, if your business practices have a lot of exceptions based on clients, then you'll have a tall administrative task on your hands.

Pros

ArchiOffice

  • ArchiOffice helps me manage my time throughout the work day.
  • ArchiOffice helps me to understand how much time I have allocated to each client and to give me a realistic view on how long each task actually takes.
  • ArchiOffice gives me a breakdown of the time and expenses our company has allocated to each project.

FinancialForce PSA

  • PSA is data rich. It captures all the data you would need in one form or fashion. If you know what you are looking for, you can find it somewhere. There is a strong reporting function that allows you to create any number of custom reports or dashboards for tracking performance.
  • The tool can scale fairly easily and can take on fair amounts of projects and data.

Cons

ArchiOffice

  • 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.

  • The page to choose resources for a project isn't intuitive.
  • Adoption can be difficult, mostly down to internal training.

We would renew but have been acquired and our parent company will drive the decisions around PSA systems

From my standpoint, FinancialForce PSA is relatively easy to use. As a System Administrator, I am able to maneuver around the software with ease. As a user of FinancialForce PSA, I am able to input my timecards and expense reports without any issues. I have received very positive and very negative feedback about using FinancialForce PSA, however, from users in other functional roles in my organization.

Most of the time it is fine. There are peak periods of usage where performance noticably slows down (i.e., Monday mornings when time is due and many reports are being run)

Appirio did a good job, however, the user team didn’t know enough to make all the right configuration/customization choices. The team focused too much on replicating existing processes vs. reengineering them. In hindsight we should have had deep dive reviews at key milestones and enforced more focus on how the software would operate. We didn’t have access to true best practices expertise. In hindsight, a consultant from the outside would have been helpful to drive this.

Alternatives Considered

ArchiOffice

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.

FF PSA is a robust Project Management solution that can be configured to fits any size business. We have tried several other applications and PSA so far has met and exceeded our needs. We run our day to day operations on Salesforce so having a solution that is native was a must have. PSA met that requirement and much more.

FinancialForce PSA

  • It replaced an homebuilt system, so it has decreased the amount of data entry and reduced errors.
  • Increased view into future company pipeline, backlog and planning.
