What is BigTime Software?

BigTime helps accountants, architects, engineers, IT-services firms, scientific and management consultants budget, track, and bill their most important asset: time.

BigTime is a system for project budgeting and planning, time and expense tracking, and invoicing/payments -- all backed by reporting and analytics to take the guesswork out of utilization, capacity planning, and project profitability.

BigTime: Your Partner in Firm Management
“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."

We started using BigTime Software to better track staff time against projects and keep track of WIP. The program is easy to use and the chat support is quick to respond most of the time and able to help, especially in a pinch.

Ajera is not as user friendly and seems to be designed for larger corporations Does not have integrations with other software like QB
timesheets mostly, admin staff populate the rest of the data such as creating new jobs, activity codes, expenses, reports, invoices etc.
As the main use, administration full access, I would be the one to address any BT issues. My admin staff assist as well.
  • accounts payable and receivable
  • timesheet tracking
  • project tracking
  • reports
  • Billable history on jobs
  • Teams tracking not used but a goal
  • WIP tracking and reporting
  • scheduling tool

Its been a huge help in saving time and making billing more efficient. Would like to see the product grow and be able to continue to use it.
Quickbooks desktop
We replaced it b/c we need to report/track retainers and wanted to also track WIP. We also did not use QB timesheet feature so we
were lacking the ability of editable activity codes and lumping scopes together to match our client contracts. BT has helped with all of this.

AT times the client contracts can be very involved and we needed a product that would allow us to create and alter the activity codes as we go, etc. BT helped with this as well as timesheets and WIP reporting. We also needed a product to merge with QBO and BT offers all of these features.
A significant amount of time and research was put into this decision and we are happy with the product.
They are quick to respond and helpful.
no, have not needed it
yes a few times and I must say that the most effective bugs have been resolved in a timely manner
YES, a few times. When we implemented the software we asked for help with personalizing the invoice templates. Although BT does not have a supported group for this, the trainer at the time was able to help us a little bit. From there I was able to edit and make changes as I go. This was helpful to me and I am grateful for that help.

Other times, they have escalated calls if the first agent was not able to assist in our questions. Most of the help was needed when we were still learning the product and how to use. Rarely do we reach out now, unless we notice a bug or if we want to ask of a way to fix something or ask for new features to be considered.
Staff adapted to the new timesheets immediately. The invoice platform is nice and tracking WIP is great!
Color backgrounds still need work. The new vibrant mode is OK. still trying it out.
  • entering in client data
  • activity codes
  • invoicing
  • reporting
  • posting expenses
  • lack of payroll tracking-PTO
I have not used it and I am not sure if any of the staff has tried it yet
