Projector PSA

Projector PSA has the ability to open and close past periods which can be useful at time. One way in which it's less appropriate is if you change the expense type or task type, it will affect invoice time and material. In other words, there is no hard close, one must be very careful when modifying dimensions

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

  • 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.

We have been using this tool for a year now and find our use of it continually evolves and broadens. We are also very excited about the overhaul that's under way and feel many of the improvements being put in place will help make us that much more effective and efficient. The Projector team is also very responsive and collaborative in terms of user feedback and improvement suggestions, which helps us know they will work hard to help us get what we need out of the tool.

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.

During our assessment of alternate systems we examined the functionality of: ASTEA, Technology One, SAP, Microsoft Project Server, and Salesforce.com. Offerings were assessed against the following evaluation criteria: system functionality, application integration, implementation, implementation timeframe, user adoption, training, ongoing support, and cost. Projector PSA was selected based on its ease of use, simple implementation, limited configuration required, functionality, implementation and ongoing costs. ROI was obtained in year one.
