Likelihood to Recommend

BigTime Software

The best use that we could give to this consulting tool would be the intention of streamlining and maximizing the workflow; [BigTime Software] allowing us to perform tasks simultaneously [and increases] the profitability of the service.

I can't imagine a scenario where someone could misuse this tool.

Zoho Expense

Honestly probably works well for almost any company. I have used Expensify before and while Expensify may be a bit more polished, Zoho Expense is wonderful. Plus it integrates with all my other Zoho products including Books and CRM.

Pros

BigTime Software

  • Invoice Style and detail..Bigtime allows the user the ability to choose more of what you need to appear on your invoice with its window options.
  • Phase/Percentage Billing; ease of adding additional phases to a project mid-project; clearly identifying Retainers
  • Support Team- In particular Melissa D and Lina Z...Par Excellent on the Teams
  • WHIP/Reports/Review of Invoices just make the entire billing process a BREEZE has cut my time frame in half, a Incredible help in this Season of Remote Work Environment that we are adapting to.

Zoho Expense

  • The program will notify users if they have entered a duplicate charge.
  • Once the end-users understood that receipts were mandatory, attaching those receipts has become second-nature. The app makes it very easy to do so.

Cons

BigTime Software

  • I would like the platform to save information in its database of the clients with whom we perform any type of professional service.
  • I would also like to see the bank reconciliation option implemented.
  • Among the aspects that I do not like about this tool, [is] that its user interface is not so intuitive, which means that we have to open several tabs to find the information we are looking for.

Zoho Expense

  • Could have more default options. Instead of making my users select payment method, allow us to default it to one of the options.
  • More room for customization by department. My service department needs different categories of expenses then my sales department.

Staff adapted to the new timesheets immediately. The invoice platform is nice and tracking WIP is great!

Probably the easiest Zoho Application to setup, which is to say quite easy. No user has complained about it being difficult. Admin staff like it as well.

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.

Zoho Expense

Zoho Expense 9.5
Based on 3 answers
The only reason I give Zoho a 9 is because of the issue with the Chart of Accounts skewing every time I export/import. I believe this is due to the fact that I use sub-accounts and Zoho cannot differentiate. Still hoping. :)

Alternatives Considered

BigTime Software

While they have similar capabilities, our main reason for switching to BigTime Software was that Harvest could not reconcile expenses and labor hours into one budget line item, which threw off entire project budgets. In this regard, BigTime Software is more accurate and a much more powerful tool. While it's not as intuitive or aesthetically appealing, BigTime Software is a much better fit for our business.

Zoho Expense

I have only used Expensify before and it stacks up nicely to it. Expensify is probably a bit better, but it's also more expensive, especially if you already use other Zoho products.

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.

Zoho Expense

  • Expense reporting was a nightmare during the first year in our office. I was looking for a program that was user-friendly, affordable, accurate, and most of all -- integrated with QuickBooks Desktop. Zoho does all that. They also have a full suite of other apps that are able to be integrated.
