Overall Satisfaction with Replicon PSM

Replicon is used across the whole organization to track time and expenses. It is mainly used by the finance team to bill the customers, depending on who worked on what and for how long, and at the same time forward incurred expenses to the clients. The managers also used to manage time off, approve or deny requests for annual leave, or just record sick leave.

Basically, anything that the company needs to know in order to pay the staff correctly and bill the customers.
  • Timesheets are pretty straightforward, you just have to choose a client/project/task that you worked on (in that order), and put the hours for each day. You can then specify if it is billable or not and that’s it, you can submit.
  • Time off are also very efficient, as you can select your days off from your calendar, and choose if it is a paid time off, sick leave, or other type of leave. By selecting a range of days, it automatically subtracts weekends, bank holidays, and gives you the remaining days off that you have (and if it is possible to request paid time off for example). The calendar view is very good.
  • Expenses management are very efficient, you just have to describe what you spent and select on what project or client, then put the incurred amount and upload scans of your receipts. It also handles different currencies which is good for international companies, and you can keep track of the approval status, to know when you are going to be reimbursed without asking the finance team.
  • There is no easy way to add a comment on an expense, you have to reopen a ticket to add a comment. But that might be how it is configured in our company.
  • It is very straightforward, so people tend to be encouraged to fill their timesheets on time, specially since they can do that on mobile. This means faster invoicing for clients, meaning getting paid faster.
  • Also, better expenses management, with a unified system where we can track all expenses incurred and create reports on them. This provides better visibility to see where we are wasting money.
We used to track time on JIRA on the tickets. This was good enough for time tracking, but didn't integrate efficiently with accounting software, so accountants had to replicate manually the data from JIRA to their software in order to bill clients. Using Replicon made things much easier for them.
It is perfect for inputing time sheets, time offs and expenses. It is hosted on the cloud, so accessible from anywhere, and even from mobile.
It should nonetheless do just that, as it is not suited to track the work that you are doing or details about it. It is completely useless in that case.
