A project with many people working on it can be broken down into manageable chunks of time that can be TRACKED! It's nice that all of us on that project will receive a notification if we're close to the time allocated for that project, this way we need to speed up what is remaining for the project and stop brainstorming and get creating!We do NOT use Harvest for tracking employee hours for the day. We don't use it as a time card tracking purpose when used that way, it becomes too cumbersome and we found it could water down actual time worked on projects, because people will utilize project time for bathroom use, coffee refills, etc.
- Consistently making updates to better serve their wide variety of users
- Allows for a decent amount of customization - you can put in different tasks for different departments, you can put in project costs on a one-time or recurring basis to compare time to money, etc.
- It's pretty easy to pull customizable reports to fit what data you want to look at.
- We would love to see Harvest build a feature for more detailed proposals that could be signed by the client and then automatically be turned into a billable invoice. The estimate falls short of this for larger projects.
- Sending an invoice directly to the client from the Harvest dashboard can sometimes fail. Because it's coming from a spoofed email- some clients never get the invoice because it get's trapped in their spam folder.

When first trialing Harvest, we had a couple of questions about annual billing and adding new team members. The support team answered are questions in a fair amount of time in a clear way that didn't need any follow up from us. It was a good experience moving into actually purchasing the licenses.
Harvest is significantly better than Jira. I think Jira's is not originally intended to be used as a time logging/management system, but we had been previously using it as that. It was much clunkier, and many employees had a difficult time using it as a user interface goes.Harvest is much more user friendly and has simplified the daily time-logging process for everyone in our office
Return on Investment
- Quick onboarding for new staff. Less time training means that the staff member can ramp up more quickly
- Low impact on productivity in daily use. Less time tracking your time, means more time on projects
- Easy to pull data, and use it for data driven decisions/estimates for future projects
