We use Avaza for project managing clients, as well as our agency marketing. We also use it for time management, and creating accurate proposals for clients based on historical data. I separate my tasks out by clients and can easily add due dates to make sure that I'm hitting deadlines.
  • Avaza is great for project management. I use it to organize client roadmaps by task and deadline. You can also easily time yourself for specific tasks.
  • The interface and taxonomy could use an update, sometimes it's hard to figure out where things logically are or should be.
I recommend using Avaza if you have your hands in multiple projects, across departments. I imagine it's a life saver for larger corporations and agencies. This tool probably doesn't make a ton of sense to use if your company is very silo-ed and you work on one project at a time for one client.

It integrates with the other software that we use daily like Xero and PracticeIgnition, so we have been really happy with how easy it has been to migrate all our content over from our previous Project Management tool.
  • Project Management - Creating projects and tasks is really easy
  • Timesheets - Logging time is super quick and simple.
  • Recurring Projects - Right now you can create recurring tasks with a project, but if you have a project that recurs monthly with a client, as we do, you have to manually create it. Ideally, we want to be able to have this happen automatically.
  • Xero Integration - If you create an invoice based on hours, you aren't able to adjust the inventory type. Also, for the integration, you are not able to have endless inventory types mapped to GL accounts in Xero. You can only have one catch-all if you are creating invoices from timesheets.

  • Estimates - It would be awesome if invoices worked more like Quotes or Proposals where the client can choose an option, accept and provide a signature.
We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

Our organization uses Avaza to keep track of time spent on every project created for every client for billing purposes. We also use it to keep track of expenses for these projects, as well as time spent on internal work such as emailing clients, researching for projects, or other miscellaneous internal activities that don't necessarily require billing.
  • Helps keep track of time spent on each project
  • Helps employees break down their time spent throughout the day
  • Encourages better time management skills
  • More introduction to the features provided
  • More detail on how to work with the day/week functions for time logging
Avaza is certainly suited for companies who require time tracking for billing purposes for their clients. This is primarily how the company I work for uses Avaza, and it works very well for us in that aspect. It's also great for keeping track of additional expenses and managing our time throughout the day.
