Hiveage

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.

WaspTime

If your employees are in a regular schedule (i.e. 9 to 5) with no overtime then WaspTime is well suited for you. In our case, we have different shifts, overtime, weekends, and double-overtime and we feel the software limitation since we have to double-check and use alternate Excel sheets to calculate the time. Our decision was also financial. We didn't want to pay every monthly forever, so in that aspect, WaspTime was one of the few prospects that kept it affordable.

Pros

Hiveage

  • Setting up to receive online payments from a number of payment processors was quick and easy, and the range of processors was excellent.
  • Invoicing and recurring invoicing were easy and straightforward to use, and clients liked it as well.
  • The entire system is user-friendly and very easy to use for anyone. It has all the basics you need for billing/invoicing for a small business and is especially ideal for freelancers.

WaspTime

  • Time goes from the swipe of a card to an accessible database that employees have access to immediately.
  • Managers can review and adjust clocked times.
  • Automatically generates reports, there are about 30-40 different available, but we only use one for payroll.

Cons

Hiveage

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

WaspTime

  • Doesn't calculate overtime for Canadian properly as our rules are slightly different and consider both daily and weekly total for overtime.
  • Can't set own payroll cut off days, as a company we had to abide by their given rules.
  • Problem calculating times for weeks splitting two cut-off periods. The problem is that the software is not considering the fact that the worker has worked the whole week and that the rest of the week is overtime.

Alternatives Considered

Hiveage

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.

WaspTime

In fact, I don't remember the names of all the competitors we compared.What I do remember is that WaspTime were one of the few that didn't have a monthly cost. We had to pay an upfront cost for the user license but that was it, and I think they were the only one doing that.One of the other requirements that it met was that it exports the times to our company accounting software, and they were the only one able to do it. Most competitors handle everything on the cloud. Sadly we haven't used that feature yet, we are happy the way it generates reports

Return on Investment

Hiveage

  • 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.

WaspTime

  • Streamlining of the payroll process throughout the company.
  • Having to manually calculate certain employee's times because the software can't handle certain situations.
  • The ability to check someone's time whenever we want.
