Archioffice is only suitable for architect and interior design firms.

Paymo

Great for tracking time if you jump around to different projects often, but a huge learning curve - especially for those who are not as flexible with technology.

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.

  • Time tracking. As long as you set up everything correctly on the front end, you don't have to think about it again and it will run in the background.
  • Job management. Organizes jobs intuitively and can easily archive jobs.
  • Support. If you ever have an issue or questions, they have a chat feature and will usually respond in a couple hours.

Cons

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • Project list personalizing. Paymo is primarily meant for freelancers, so the only way to see how much time you've spent on a job since last recording time is to navigate through a few pages to hunt down the number. It would be easier if we could personalize the list to just show that number in the main list.
  • Not intuitive. It takes a lot of set up on the front end to get jobs where you want them to be, and some features are not where you'd think they would be to get the jobs set up to track time.
  • Huge learning curve. I've already heard a couple of my teammates look for alternatives because there was too much of a learning curve for 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.

No competition.. Paymo was by far the best software for our needs.

Return on Investment

  • It positively organized our time tracking and the reporting was robust enough to use for client meetings.
  • It negatively took up more time to do certain tasks that shouldn't be so time consuming.

  • Gives me more accurate time that I've spent on projects compared to older methods I've used.
  • Has data that I can pull together, for example my boss wanted to know the percentage of time I'd spent working on projects for one client compared to everything else - I was able to give them an accurate percentage.
  • Forces you to stay on top of jobs, which can lengthen the time to complete something
