Ascentis Timekeeper

Ascentis Timekeeper is very well suited for organizations with highly complex configurations. Less useful for very small organizations.

FunctionFox

FunctionFox seems particularly well suited for tracking time where there is one billing rate for each individual rather than the scenario where one person is billed out to clients at different rates. It would seem to be most appropriate for smaller organizations (< 10 people) since those with more people would certainly need the ability to have it integrate with QuickBooks. For the price though, it's great for those smaller companies. As we've grown, we've found other applications that are more expensive and more highly adapted to Marketing Agencies in particular. Plus, we now track our expenses directly in QuickBooks vs. using that FunctionFox feature (since the two don't integrate, there's no reason to track them in both places).

Pros

  • Flexibility in configuration
  • Ease of use
  • Reporting capabilities

  • With only a couple clicks I can still easily pull reports by employee on a weekly basis which provide the information I need to run payroll.
  • I pull reports by client each month for our monthly client billings, which we have broken down by project so I can easily see how our time was spent on their account.
  • We set a budget for the approved number of hours we can apply to any one project for the month, and the system provides the project manager with a warning as the limit comes near. That function has been fantastic!
  • FunctionFox's Help Desk personnel are wonderful, providing an exceptionally personalized experience. They take their time, and will even schedule a call to go into greater depth, such as an entire account review just to ensure you're able to use all the product features to your company's best advantage. Our entire team jumped on a half hour call a couple months ago, and she answered ALL of our questions, including providing us with info on some features we hadn't realized even existed.

Cons

  • International configuration
  • Payroll export is a little cumbersome
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • We've found it difficult to add new Clients since you need to manually add each of the different types of Projects and Tasks.
  • We have also had to customize it a bit to account for personnel who bill out at multiple different rates, depending on the type of project they're working on.
  • Unfortunately, FunctionFox doesn't currently integrate with QuickBooks, so our move to QBOnline last year means that we still need to manually type in hours and projects when creating a QBO invoice. Integration with QBO has ultimately turned out to be a "must have" feature for us as we've grown, so we'll be moving to T-Sheets in 2019. But I must admit, leaving FunctionFox has been a very difficult choice.

There are better tools out there to track multiple aspects of a business. We had issues with using multiple programs and keeping projects consistent between those programs, it became confusing and there was a lot of room for error across the board. We have since transitioned to a new program that tracks all elements of a project, from tasks, creative direction to proofing, budget, estimates, hours etc. I would highly recommend FunctionFox for a smaller company (Less than 10 people) in order to monitor hours and bill to actuals.

It's a good tool for tracking hours and overall budget. It does not give you insight into why there are those hours, or what part of the project has over burned. The tool is also tough to export reports and find the correct information throughout. Not only this, but I also have a hard time changing project details - there's no real easy way to and there's a larger room for error

I haven't used FunctionFox for a lot of support requests. On the times that i've been having issues I've had the issue resolved within a day, most questions I have had i've been able to source answers online or from a colleague. From what I have experienced the support team seems great.

Unsure on implementation of FunctionFox - was before my time at the company. Everyone at the company had a good understanding of the product and how to use it by the time I joined. My understanding is we implemented ourselves with a few training sessions for the creative team and adding hours as well as training for the account team to add projects

Ascentis Timekeeper is superior in it's ability in its configuration of highly complex organizational policies.

Return on Investment

  • Clear insight into the ins and outs of the workforce
  • Workforce planning and analysis
  • Extensive reporting
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • FunctionFox has been our very first time tracking application for the business, so it's helped ensure we're billing out for all the time worked on our client's behalf. Or at least we are able to see how much time we consciously decide NOT to bill.
  • With greater visibility of our data, we're able to track employee efficiency. For instance, we are able to see the # of hours that are billable vs. non-billable per week, so everyone now sees their billable % stats with each paycheck.
  • The cost of FunctionFox is low, and you're not billed for archived users so it's been a great value for the money. It only helps us produce revenue, with exceptionally little cost. This product fulfills a much needed service in the arena of essential apps for small businesses.
