“BigTime Wallet offered us a way to get payments faster from our clients, and also eliminate any fees within electronic payments on the client end. The ease of creating invoices from time in BigTime and the formats were better than almost anything we’ve seen out there.”
"BigTime has helped us increase efficiency from start to finish. From onboarding a client to actually doing the work for them, drafting the invoice, and sending it to them, because of the cohesiveness of the program we're able to increase our efficiency in how we serve the client and how we bill them."

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

BigTime works well for companies that bill their clients by the hour, and that have multiple hourly rates depending on what task is being performed. It allows each employee to input their own time and expenses, and also allows their supervisors to review the input time/expenses before invoicing the client. The flexibility to input time/expenses on your desktop, laptop, or phone is a good feature. The customer service response can be slow at times, although recently they have had quicker response times, so I believe they are striving to improve that aspect.

For the price and it's capabilities, it is the best practice management software out there. I tested quite a few before I purchased this one. Lots of software syncs with quickbooks online, but very few sync with quickbooks desktop and that makes this one unique. My firm is a full service accounting firm and we manage over 1,000 personal tax projects and hundreds of bookkeeping and accounting engagements and BigTime does this well. It's client information management could be better and ability to produce reports could use improvement. Also when syncing, sometimes transactions are doubled and it is difficult to remove the second transaction.

BigTime Software has helped our firm tremendously! The beautiful thing about the program is that it can be customized to fit all of your business needs. We use it for time tracking and billing, however, this program can be used for more than just a time tracker. You can use it to track your working hours, manage your team, and so much more. The dashboard makes it easy to see what tasks need to be completed and who is working on them. I have been extremely pleased with this software and would recommend it to anyone!

Very convenient software. No VPN is needed, and you can log in by phone, via the app, or from desktop computers. I love the feature to downloads XLS files so I can manipulate the data for quick analysis and entry into other reports. While the downside, some features are a bit hard to find. Certain configurations are not obvious, but things will go smoothly once set up.

It is made for companies with multiple rates and employees to be able to track their individual expenses. It can also be customized for companies like ours that have a generally fixed rate. The program is very flexible and includes many options that do not apply to our situation, but would be useful for many other companies. It is helpful to be able to pick and choose the features that apply to us.

BigTime Software provides a plethora of client types, project statuses, task types, and task groupings in order to specifically and accurately track your time. With this array of information, filtering and isolating the correct information is attainable for detailed segmented work specifically in invoicing. The problem is that arranging and getting everything correct typed and statuses set can be cumbersome.

The best use that we could give to this consulting tool would be the intention of streamlining and maximizing the workflow; [BigTime Software] allowing us to perform tasks simultaneously [and increases] the profitability of the service. I can't imagine a scenario where someone could misuse this tool.

BigTime Software is great for working with other accounting systems like Quick books. the two accounting systems communicate well together.

My Experience is that BigTime might actually be the ONLY billing solution I have worked with that would ACTUALLY be compatible across any industry. If it can be flexible enough to fit the parameters of Designers/Project managers parameters such as ours, the other industries should be a breeze!

It's well suited for any small to midsize professional services company looking to track time and expenses and to draft and send invoices in one central location. The Quickbooks integration is fairly smooth as well.

I would not recommend it for workflow tracking, as there is a gantt chart function but it's relatively clunky and difficult to utilize.

For general employees, it is incredibly easy to enter and track time and expenses through BigTime. From an admin side, it is also easy to add new employees, companies, projects, tasks, and more to BigTime. From a project management standpoint, the reporting and automation capabilities native to BigTime are great and easy to use.

It’s great for smaller to medium sized companies to submit invoices. I'm not as sure how well it works for very large companies since many things are inputed manually by the user. If there were more automated functions it may be better for larger businesses.

For a small business, BigTime is economical and robust enough to handle all our accounting needs. It is extremely customizable, but not 100%. As they continue to add features and functions through user feedback, larger companies or companies that need to be able to completely customize actions such as invoices and reporting may not see BigTime as useful. We've had great success in BigTime as it relates to time tracking, budget tracking, invoicing, and reporting. We love it!

BigTime is great for timesheet tracking- ease of accessibility for employees. They can download the mobile app and log their time when they remember to or when I need it immediately! Expenses are done the same way. You can upload the receipt from your phone.

BigTime is well suited for a large organization in need of a simple, convenient platform for timesheet management. It is probably less suited for a smaller organization or one that won't benefit from the analytics and reporting available through the software.
