For organizations with 10+ employees, I think it is suitable. Smaller shops might find it overly complex.

It is perfect for inputing time sheets, time offs and expenses. It is hosted on the cloud, so accessible from anywhere, and even from mobile. It should nonetheless do just that, as it is not suited to track the work that you are doing or details about it. It is completely useless in that case.
Read full review Pros The help desk ticket system is robust and modern. Billing & invoicing from Harmony meets all our needs and is easy to use. Project management and scheduling features help us stay organized and on schedule. Read full review Many of our staff members work on multiple projects. Replicon PSM is ideal for managers to track all staff hours just by running a simple report. It's so easy use & maintain. Support team is really impressive, seem to know their product. Reporting is a breeze. Read full review Cons Training resources are still a work in progress. As a software engineer, I'd like to see a more extensive API Read full review Though the technical support staff are always very nice, sometimes they don't seem to understand exactly what the issue is based on our explanation. There have been several times when I've ended up solving the issue on my own without their assistance, despite numerous emails and phone calls. Could be a language barrier issue, perhaps they could receive more training in how companies are actually using the software on a daily basis. Employee time sheets have to be approved by project managers and supervisors prior to my final approval. However, when viewing the time sheets in list form, there is no way for me to tell whether a time sheet has been approved by everyone else. I have to manually open each one and hover over the approver link. It would be helpful if there was a column in the list showing which approvers still need to approve it. There have been a few times when time sheets were accidentally deleted by approvers. In order to retrieve them, we've had to contact Replicon support and have a backup instance of the information created. It would be great if perhaps there was some sort of archive or recently deleted section that could be accessed right away without having to go through Replicon support, a folder or something that would hold on to recently deleted files for a few days or a week just in case they needed to be retrieved. Some of our projects have more than one project manager. Replicon currently allows for co-managers to be assigned to a project, but this status does not seem to include that co-manager in the approval of time sheets and expenses. We have had to manually create an approval path to include that second manager. It would be nice if co-managers would automatically be included in those approval paths.

Connectwise was the 600 pound gorilla with lots of features, but it was also the titantic, too big to get out of its own way. We found it too complex to use and too archaic to integrate with. As powerful as it was, it was missing a few key features that a modern PSA like CloudBlue had as a matter of course. CloudBlue feels like the new generation, and so far it's only gotten better as they grow.

We used to track time on
on the tickets. This was good enough for time tracking, but didn't integrate efficiently with accounting software, so accountants had to replicate manually the data from
to their software in order to bill clients. Using Replicon made things much easier for them.
Read full review Return on Investment It's allowed us to migrate away from home grown solutions to adhere to industry standards and better utilize our engineer's time. Quoting new projects and hardware is easier to delegate and vastly more efficient than our previous methods. Read full review No negative; we just use it for timesheets.
