Overall Satisfaction with Everhour

We're using Everhour across our entire organization, for tracking both billable and non-billable time spent on tasks (through the Asana integration). The most often-used metrics are time spent on retainers (which is limited per month), and actual time spent on fixed-price projects, versus projected time/billed cost. Everhour's reporting functions have proven very useful in both internally reviewing those numbers, and sharing time spent/tasks completed with clients.
  • Clean, well-presented, detailed customizable reports that can be downloaded and shared with clients, creating high levels of client confidence in our working policies & time tracking
  • Easy & seamless integration with Asana, our preferred project/task management tool
  • Readily editable entries in case you forget to run the clock (or stop it running)
  • Ability to estimate time for tasks and compare time spent to estimate
  • Clearer display of time tracking on reports--the numbers shown in the two right-hand columns aren't clear in what they mean
  • Ability to auto-send PDF reports to clients at specified intervals
  • Improved accuracy and profitability of proposals, by allowing me to see specifically where we were blowing our estimates during projects (or beating them)
  • Enabled a clearer picture of what non-billable tasks were chewing up significant amounts of employee time
  • Established how many billable hours we could reasonably expect any given employee to complete in a particular time frame, improving overall time & workload management across all projects
Generally found the Everhour integration with Asana to be much easier to use, scalable, and valuable in terms of reporting insights than the competition. Mavenlink was too much of a lift to manage; Harvest's integration and reporting functions just weren't as clean or streamlined as Everhour's (though I haven't checked if Harvest has updated since a couple years ago).
Very well-suited to managing time for a team with a variety of clients and projects to consider. Ideally you want at least one person responsible for tracking budgets, estimates, and reports so that you can get the most out of the tool (on our team, that's me, though I wish I had a bit more time to spend on it). If your company does large scale estimates for fixed-price projects and you want to track actual time spent against estimates (and thus, profitability/accuracy of your proposals), it's invaluable. Same goes for if you have retainers--simplicity of tracking hours against specific retainer tasks in Asana is perfect.
