What is BigTime?

BigTime is the access-anywhere operating system behind the greatest professional services teams on the planet. See how we help your project-driven firm track and bill its most important asset: time. BigTime can help you take the guesswork out of utilization, capacity planning, and revenue projections. Users can manage project teams, work in process (WIP), as well as measure profitability per project, and even per staff. BigTime helps users get paid faster with the least amount of friction. Organizations can streamline the workflow with the Quickbooks integration developed by the BigTime development team, selected by Intuit as their OEM developers.

    Cons
    It stopped syncing with QuickBooks without lots of re-booting of computers and time wasted. Customer service was seriously lacking when we stopped using it.

    We use BigTime for Professional Services Automation. It is great for our multilevel company.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Our company is not able to more accurately and completely track time to be charged to a project. Our systems are now more automated and more paperless.

    Pros

    BigTime allows users from a variety of backgrounds to connect to the software from various platforms (desktop, laptop, smart phone) to track time per project, to track expenses on a daily basis with electronic submission of receipts, to run reports on time spent, to connect with external accounting software seamlessly.

    Cons

    the software has some limits on "naming" items that do not always correspond directly to our external software and do not fit within our company culture. (For example: In BigTime, billable means charged to the project, may invoiced or may not invoice. In our company culture, billable means an invoice will be sent for payment to the client.

    Vendor response

We're very happy to hear that BigTime is working for you throughout your organization and that you're able to use the software across several different platforms - we work hard to make that happen!

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

    Reviewed a year ago

    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.

    Bigtime

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    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.

    Vendor response

    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.
