  • It is intuitive.
  • It is easy to use
  • It helps us manage our tasks, which we weren't able to do in QuickBooks Online.
  • I am having trouble figuring out how to drop time from invoice tracking (i.e.: billed as a lump sum, so I no longer want to see this time as a potential invoice that needs to be drafted).
  • We still use QuickBooks and I have trouble uploading Invoices there.
  • Invoice payment is difficult to navigate.

  • Invoicing is fairly easy
  • Project management and tasks are easy to create
  • Budgets are easily seen (monetary and time)
  • For some types of projects, we are unable to use BigTime's invoicing feature. It would be nice if we could further customize invoices to fit our needs. We still have to use Quickbooks to complete certain invoices.
  • Being able to create Purchase Orders in BigTime would be extremely useful to us. We currently use Quickbooks for this.

  • I like the functionality of being able to make payments electronically and the amount of banks and payment methods that are available.
  • Another very useful feature of this tool is that the system allows to set a parameter to perform automatic invoices.
  • I also really like the amount of templates that this tool has. Since it allows us to make customizable reports to our clients.
  • I would like the platform to save information in its database of the clients with whom we perform any type of professional service.
  • I would also like to see the bank reconciliation option implemented.
  • Among the aspects that I do not like about this tool, [is] that its user interface is not so intuitive, which means that we have to open several tabs to find the information we are looking for.

  • BigTime IQ allows us to dive deeper into the capabilities of the software and further customize the platform for our needs.
  • The BigTime IQ is extremely extensive and provides a wealth of knowledge.
  • While BigTime IQ provides information on virtually everything in the platform, it would be nice if the articles provided visuals showing step-by-step instructions on how to achieve what the text is instructing.

  • BigTime IQ and QuickBooks seamlessly integrate information. This makes life much easier for timesheets and expenses.
  • When time is directly entered against phasing of projects, the budgets are clear and tracked live.
  • We don't use the invoicing portion of the program. This causes the Work In Progress to keep mounting and isn't gauged correctly.

  • BigTime is very simple and intuitive to use. It really didn't require any training for me to begin billing my time using BigTime.
  • There's a strong mobile app to use if you need to track your time on the go. This has been useful for when I forget to submit hours before a deadline and can do so away from a computer.
  • Easy to keep track of multiple clients and add/delete projects to avoid cluttering the list.
  • You have to manually "submit" timesheets even once they're filled, and several times there have been errors that cause submissions to fail without me realizing it. It's also easy to forget to submit once you've filled hours out.
