Truthfully - I really like Harvest. It proved effective and valuable for my team at the time. However, upon doing more research, I did find better programs that offered more for a cheaper price per user.

Pros
- Easy to learn and use - Great for tracking team member's hours - Ability to manually enter time and have a timer. - The customer service seems to be pretty good here.

Cons
- There are better time management platforms that can help to minimize the room for error or team member's inserting more time spent. - Can be costly, in comparison to other programs on the market.

Review Source: Capterra

I stopped using Word for invoicing and never looked back, as you can send a receipt so easily, you can send out automated payment reminders to annoy those late payers and not bother yourself.

Pros
It's simple and I can track all projects. It allows simple Estimates to be accepted by the client. And you can also turn all your billable hours into an invoice in an easy step. Cheap!

Cons
It doesn't allow for direct deposit pay now link, as I dont use Paypal for business. It doesnt offer window-capture tracking if you happen to have a VA, and the price goes up steeply when adding another user.

Good tool but pricey

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, Harvest is a great tool and makes tracking time very easy. However, it's pricey compared to competitors and doesn't offer enough features to make it worthwhile.

Pros
Harvest makes tracking time very easy for our employees to input and for managers to review and approve. We've used Harvest for tracking production hours for projects as well as working hours for payroll. It's a very handy tool and is really easy to use.

Cons
The price seemed a bit steep considering it's a fairly simple tool. It does provide some features, but overall, it really only has one main function, and the price reflected a much more sophisticated software. In fact, we terminated our subscription once we found a cheaper alternative that does the exact same thing.

Pros
We are heavy users of the invoice generation and team allocation features. Great usability and very straighforward. Helps us organize and execute faster.

Cons
A bit pricey since we do not use all the full-stack features so the cost-benefit is biased there. Could have more features based on value based pricing, instead of billable hours or fixed project fees.

Ease of timekeeping and ability to pull comprehensive time reports.

Pros
It is easy to create an account, the free trial is really free and no pressure when you set up your account initially. It is also easy to scale with your team.

Cons
It is one of the more pricey options for time keeping out there. If you only use it to track time on projects and a few clients, there might be cheaper options available.

My overall experience has been fantastic. The free trial was great and afterwards, the monthly cost is affordable. Above all love how easy it is to use the program.

Pros
I really like this software for its easy user interface and reporting metrics. It's easy to navigate and I don't need to watch videos, receive training, or other stuff like that to figure it out. I'm able to track hours and more with ease.

Cons
I wish the free trial was longer but hey, what can you do. It was good while it lasted.

Pros
Harvest is accessible from anywhere, which make it great for any kind of user. The dashboards are also easy to use and understand.

The graphic interface is aging making it seems to be an old application. It is also pricy for small businesses.

Harvest is great software, but it does require discipline - if you're tracking time out of curiosity, you need to really keep at it. Obviously if you're tracking at work as a requirement, there's more of an incentive. If you're disciplined, then Harvest is a great, flexible option.

Pros
Harvest is very flexible to your way of working, so it's very easy to use.

Cons
The pricing - though there is a free plan so it's hard to be too critical.

I use Harvest to track hours on projects and invoice for time spent. I've also used the estimating tool with great success. I also accept online payments through Harvest and Stripe.

Pros
Number 1: great value for the money. So much capability in one product, for a very low monthly fee. Number 2: They are constantly adding new features, but not half-baked ones. I get the impression the the product and engineering teams are very good at what they do.

Cons
Could use more customizing of expenses and taxes - I'd like to be able to add fees to invoices that are not taxes - like markups for Stripe fees.

No more tracking time on projects through notebooks and spreadsheets, or losing track of outstanding invoices. It's all there, easily accessible from a single online platform. For my solo enterprise, it's less than $15/month, which is an incredible bargain.

Pros
- So easy to do everything: time tracking, invoicing, expenses. The whole platform is intuitive and easily navigable. - Flexible time tracking: either setting a timer or entering into a timesheet-like interface. - The system can send invoice reminders on your behalf, so it's not like you personally bugging your contact. - You get to choose -- through checkboxes -- how detailed you want your invoices to be. - Invoices are globally configurable, so you can set up your template with logo, recurring info, etc. - At a glance, you can see how much you have invoiced/received over the year/last year/etc. and which invoices are outstanding. - Every end-of-week you get a report that shows how you spent your tracked time.

Cons
I haven't encountered anything to dislike about this platform, though I haven't yet used all of its features.

Reviewed 2016-03-23
Review Source: GetApp

Does an excellent job of tracking and breaking down billable hours for my work. Subliminally, it also helps to keep me focused and on task because I know that it is being tracked

Pros
I'm able to log in my hours and describe what I have been working on so I don't have to worry about writing it down anywhere. It is extremely easy to use even for nontechnical people they really tried to make the product simple and useful.

Cons
The pricing scheme isn't very flexible for casual freelance developers but for the agency setting it works perfectly.

Useful product that helps in the daily work. It basically tracks the work you do over the day/week/month.., however it does more- you can set up billing and routine tasks to calculate how much time was spent on a project and decide how to charge client. Great product for monitoring the work of employees!

Pricing could be an issue, however you can use the free trial and check if it fits your business needs before paying
