Organizations can streamline the workflow with the Quickbooks integration developed by the BigTime development team, selected by Intuit as their OEM developers.

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

    Reviewed on 2021/03/10

    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.

    Reviewed on 2020/11/12

    Pros

    The onboarding process and support has been seamless so far and we expect to be fully converted in 60 days total.

    Cons

    Always room for improvement, but we haven't had any with BigTime yet. We need to sort out some details in our Quickbooks Desktop projects to align when integrating.

    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.

    Response from BigTime Software

    Jenna,

    Thanks so much for this review- we really appreciate hearing from all our customers here at BigTime! We are very glad to hear that you're happy with our engagements and how you can create unique engagements per client, but we're sad to hear that you feel that invoicing is not working for you. There are many ways you can use BigTime's invoicing, and there are many help features that can help you learn how. Here are just a few:

    Overall, we have had a very positive experience working with the BigTime team, and the software itself. All of our questions and concerns have been addressed as quickly as they arose.

    Pros

    BigTime is incredibly inexpensive and easy to get into compared to competing software. If you have a dedicated team, you could be implemented in as little as a month. The customer support has also been superb. I have really enjoyed working with the sales and implementation mangers. We decided on BigTime because we needed a Project Management software, and ended up with a slew of other features that has allowed us to cut out some other software subscriptions such as time tracking software.

    Cons

    The only thing I can say we really dislike about BigTime is not having a "clock-in, clock-out" function. Meaning the software does not record the time of day you start and end. Overall, the time tracking portion does not seem as detailed as Tsheets, our previous time tracking software.

    In our month of using BigTime, our experience has been wonderful! Our Customer Success Manager is AMAZING! We ran into some logging in issues for a team member and she jumped right on getting it fixed for us! The software has been so beneficial for Project Management in the month we have been using it. We still have a training session left with our CSM at BigTime to learn more features it offers and we cannot wait to learn what else it has to offer!

    Pros

    That it is so customizable from just about every feature it offers.
    Easy to use.
    Intregrates with QuickBooks.
    The white glove service from our customer success manager, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN].
    All of the report options and customizations
    Project Management and tracking on all aspects of a project.
    The Knowledge based section for finding information on how to use features.

    Cons

    That you cannot change the Project Fee to say Project Budget. This is just a preferred naming system for our company though, so not the end of the world that we could not change this.
