Harvest

Harvest is pretty customizable to your needs, and even if you don't do any sort of performance reviews around time tracking (we don't), it's a very helpful tool to give insights on how time is being spent. Additionally, it's given us insights that we wouldn't have even expected, like that reports were taking significantly longer than they should have to build, which led us to implementing a new tool to help streamline report building.

Pros

Harvest

  • Time tracking in harvest is excellent. You can start and stop timers from their desktop applications, from the browser, and even using API integrations like slash commands in slack. It is easy to adjust entries as necessary, submit timesheets for approval (if you need to) and track time in whatever way works for you.
  • Harvest's invoicing is excellent. The automatic messages are very simple to setup, the invoices are easy to pay and have very low fees when using paypal (50 cents), and the invoices are easy to create and track.
  • Harvest has excellent support that is extremely responsive.

Cons

Harvest

  • 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.

Harvest 8.6
Based on 9 answers
When we've had issues, we were able to get in touch with a "help desk" of sorts to trouble-shoot. I've also found that the support and FAQ's on the site are pretty well written and answer a lot of questions. The email updates are helpful to learn about all the new features, as well.

Alternatives Considered

Harvest

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

Harvest

  • 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
