    Very convenient software. No VPN is needed, and you can log in by phone, via the app, or from desktop computers. I love the feature to downloads XLS files so I can manipulate the data for quick analysis and entry into other reports. While the downside, some features are a bit hard to find. Certain configurations are not obvious, but things will go smoothly once set up.

    The best thing that I saw in this tool is that you can view and manage all the things from a single dashboard. It's super easy to create, give feedback and organize tickets, and it is also very easy to track the progress of any individual ticket. Along with these, its functionality is so easy to understand that anyone can use it after using it for a while.

    Pros

    BigTime Software

    • I like the functionality of being able to make payments electronically and the amount of banks and payment methods that are available.
    • Another very useful feature of this tool is that the system allows to set a parameter to perform automatic invoices.
    • I also really like the amount of templates that this tool has. Since it allows us to make customizable reports to our clients.

    Cons

    BigTime Software

    • For some types of projects, we are unable to use BigTime's invoicing feature. It would be nice if we could further customize invoices to fit our needs. We still have to use Quickbooks to complete certain invoices.
    • Being able to create Purchase Orders in BigTime would be extremely useful to us. We currently use Quickbooks for this.

    Staff adapted to the new timesheets immediately. The invoice platform is nice and tracking WIP is great! Color backgrounds still need work. The new vibrant mode is OK. still trying it out.

    The support is amazing! They are always available through the chat interface in the program. Each support person has fully answered my questions the first time. I have had a positive experience with each inquiry. It is very important to me that I am able to get instant access to help so that I can make the most of the software and all of its capabilities.

    Alternatives Considered

    BigTime Software

    I liked the client management, but it didn't do time tracking, billing or syncing with quickbooks. It was too robust for my needs. I tried it for the client management and thought I might use it along with bigtime, but it was too cumbersome and would involve too much double entry. And it didn't track time or bill which are necessary functions

    When looking for solutions for our business, I personally looked at Aautotask. I am not the decision maker so I don't know what my boss looked at in full. Autotask seems good. It looked like it got a bit complicated and may be for very large enterprise customers. Just lots of features that we don't need.

    Return on Investment

    BigTime Software

    • Before BigTime, we were using Excel to track everything, creating invoices, and run reports. Getting on BigTime has saved us tons of time and effort which equates to dollars saved on labor.
    • From a legal standpoint, BigTime has allowed us to be organized and prepared in the event we would need to present financial details to anyone.
