    A fantastic tool for managing projects

    The best approach to keep track of many projects' time and expenditures. Invoicing is also a breeze because to the platform's user-friendly interface. I can view all of my projects and team members in this platform, and we can all manage everything together. The Bigtime team's assistance is also a big plus in my book.

    Pros

    It's a piece of software that performs exactly what it's supposed to and does it well. The process of implementation was quite fair, and the accompanying customer service was excellent. Time tracking and the ability to divide it into other sections if necessary. For numerous projects, I've taken use of the platform's ability to develop custom reports, which have been useful.

    Cons

    BigTime doesn't always communicate to itself, so you have to dig a little further to find the answer you're looking for. In addition, I've used BigTime's "help" option and spoken with a live person who was able to diagnose my difficulties immediately away.

    Accounts Receivable/Accounting Manager BigTime Review (Not project management)

    Reviewed on 10/03/2021

    The training was really amazing. And the capabilities made it well worth the switch from Productive.

    The training was really amazing. And the capabilities made it well worth the switch from Productive.

    Pros

    The customization and the ability to track just about anything you want for project management, profitability and invoicing. And the integration with Quickbooks.

    Cons

    I wish more fields were customizable. The handful that they allow you to rename are great, but more would be better! I wish there was a 45 day training session to ask questions that arise after using for a bit.

    Reasons for Choosing BigTime

    Productive was very limited, and the budgeting side was terribly difficult to navigate especially with our high volume of monthly retainers

    Switched From

    Productive

    Reasons for Switching to BigTime

    I was not part of the research that was done. I was given the final choice to test and work with the sale rep to ensure that it performed the way we needed it to. If I was not happy we would have gone back to the drawing board. But, I know one of our main objectives is to track project profitability and this is so far doing what we needed it to do.

    Not happy. We have asked for a full refund.

    Pros

    App is a nice feature for mobile time entry.
    Updated interface is better than older software.

    Cons

    This company was heavy on the sales side with relentless calls but has been completely ghosting us on implementation support. After numerous calls and support tickets, they have only directed me to online videos. All we want is to spend an hour with a support agent to ensure the correct setup to avoid lost worktime.

    Reasons for Switching to BigTime

    I thought the size of the company with the robust development team would be a wise choice for us as we have had issues with smaller software companies. It was not as advertised.

    Love their customer service. Love that they are one of the only programs that syncs into QuickBooks Desktop.

    Pros

    Here's what I'll say, we switched out of this product because it wasn't the right fit for us. However, my biggest client uses it and I manage it and I love them. Excellent customer service. A couple kinks here and there but overall if you use right it works great.

    Cons

    I felt that the invoicing process was a little clunky. I wish I could edit the WIP easier.
