Calamari

The very user-friendly interface encourages our team members to use Calamari regularly. The tool is also very simple to use so all in-house communication is strengthened because of that. The Success team writes back within minutes and helps with literally everything so the communication between us/our team and Calamari is great.

For a very small business or a freelancer this is an excellent billing/invoicing system. Easy to get set up and configured quickly so you can get paid online quickly. It works very well for what it is intended. But for a growing small business it doesn't have the more complex accounting/bookkeeping features you might need. There is some limitation to customization as well.

  • Mobile app still needed some work, but they were going in the right direction.
  • Would like to see them add more accounting/bookkeeping functions.

Working with my rep is so easy and has been the selling point on this platform. I like that I don't have to think about it much, love the Slack integrations for my team and how easy it was to transition from our old process into Calamari. It's simple, clear, and for a small team, it has everything I need. The customer support team has always responded promptly when I need anything, and we were even able to extend our trial period in the beginning and converted to a paying customer shortly after.

Our HR department used Excel and paper request forms for our vacation management, and tracking working hours didn't exist. We were only obliged to sign a list when we were entering the office. Calamari is a huge improvement in every aspect of time tracking and vacation management for your company. We're loving it!

Hiveage and FreshBooks are actually pretty comparable. I tested both before choosing Hiveage. At the time that I chose Hiveage, the reason for choosing it was that the pricing was cheaper with their old pricing structure (you could select what features you did and didn't need as "modules" and just pay for what you used). The pricing is now comparable and both offer the same features, and similar ease-of-use.

Return on Investment

Calamari

  • Our vacations are accepted by team leaders and the hr department, so it's super easy to plan projects.
  • Clocking in/out helps everyone with punctuality.
  • It's easier to manage overtime hours.

  • Hiveage was perfect for my small business when I was smaller, and it worked well to get invoices paid online from clients quickly and easily.
  • The invoices were professional-looking, and the ease of use to make payments made clients happy.
  • Keeping track of time for billing to specific projects was advantageous as well.
