Report customization via data inquiries and custom report system. Accurate entry and tracking of timesheets,They are working towards being browser agnostic. Ajera is still quite dependent on Internet Explorer's Runonce features for many functions. Developing custom SQL queries is quite difficult given the highly interdependent DB structure. No meaningful data dictionary is available. Their support department isn't always responsive. We'd like more options for electronic payments for AP/EFT.,8,We are now confident in employees time entry. Invoicing is a breeze compared to before.

You can also add custom fields that allow you to tract addition information.,The complaint I here from our employees is often that there is a lot of Data entry. However, looking at the levels of data entry we saw when shopping for software, Ajera was one of the least. Custom fields in Ajera are great. But it would be nice if there was more options for how they appear on the page. About once a year there is a big update to Ajera with new features. Usually right after the update, there are a few glitches in the software. However, Deltek always releases corrections very quickly.,10,Employees are able to send invoices immediately when clients request them.
