Ascentis Timekeeper

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

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

  • Flexibility in configuration
  • Ease of use
  • Reporting capabilities
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • 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

  • International configuration
  • Payroll export is a little cumbersome
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • The main area for improvement is exportability of data. It's tough to get full data out of Paymo. You can export most things in CSV format, but if you were to start with Paymo and want to switch to another project management and accounting platform, there would be substantial manual effort involved.
  • There also aren't as many integrations for Paymo as some of the more mainstream project management suites. This isn't necessarily Paymo's fault. It's just a function of them still being one of the "little guys." Something to be aware of before you select this platform though.

Alternatives Considered

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

Paymo lets me track to the minute - even going back to add in time that I wasn't able to track via the app. This has been wonderful as clients might call with something quick but when I'm not able to turn on the tracker, yet I'm still able to appear to them as if I was sitting by the computer eager waiting to help. Further, the amount of notes that I'm able to put into the tracker has allowed me to include more details on live reports and invoices that I was able to do with other apps. This meant that I didn't have to track those tasks in too many spots, easing potential confusion and saving time.

Return on Investment

  • Clear insight into the ins and outs of the workforce
  • Workforce planning and analysis
  • Extensive reporting

  • Paymo has resulted in a positive ROI for my company. It should be noted that we're grandfathered in on their old billing rate, which means our subscription costs are substantially lower than a new client's would be.
