A fantastic tool for managing projects

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: 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.

BigTime is better than our Excel timesheet

4.0 last year

Comments: Introducing BigTime completely revolutionized how we run our company. Our chat support session with [sensitive content hidden] this evening was quite productive. When our company's time tracking and billing systems were combined, it was a huge help.

Pros:

The orientation procedure went really smoothly. We were given excellent assistance; even when we had queries in the period between sessions, the personnel responded quickly. The program is straightforward, and the mobile application is fantastic for our field staff.

Cons:

Even though making adjustments to our invoicing system can be challenging at times, we've always received helpful responses from the staff that have allowed us to go forward with our plans.

Comments: Overall this is for big company's with employees over 100 plus to time manage them but need a better system for invoicing.

Pros:

I like that you are able to create your own engagements per client.

Cons:

I least like the invoice part as it does not function how it is suppose too. There are to many steps for it to be integrated into QuickBooks.

BigTime review

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: BigTime is a very useful program.
I suggest it without a second thought.
You can control everything with very big ease and the very imortant is that you know at any time you have next to you the support team to answer all your queries and solve all your problems.
Is my pleasure to use BigTime.

Pros:

BigTime program can do it all, you can use it for project management modules, time tracking, expenses, resource allocation and finances. Very friendly for use program. Can have integration with WIP tracking and other programs. The 24/7 chat support is very helpful and gently and they can answer to all of our queries.

Cons:

The mobile app is very limited and it stucks very often. Except this I cannot say that I find something else negative by using BigTime.

BigTime helps with expense and project management

4.0 8 months ago

Comments: We are using BigTime to handle our expenses and our projects. We've been having some money problems, and our finance department had been using Divvy before they found BigTime. While Divvy did provide us with a bird's-eye view of our spending, BigTime provided us with a glimpse as well as other, more in-depth insights into our expense management challenges.

Pros:

You'll be able to teach your coworkers how to use BigTime in no time at all thanks to its straightforward design and user-friendliness. In addition, they sent us materials that taught us how to use the program.

Cons:

It's possible to spend a lot of money on BigTime. Since the plan we could afford for BigTime didn't include most of the capabilities we required, we had to cancel certain low-priority projects in order to use BigTime to its full potential.
