Easy to Get Productive...Hard to Stump

2017-04-25

Pricing seems confusing. Charges for the 1st user, then for each additional user. Why not just charge the same per user?

Pros

Covers most everything I need for routine time tracking, expense reports and billing for clients.

Cons

It has 5 user types, which is more than I need for a one-man consulting firm. Probably better for larger firms.

Customer Support Is Fantastic

2017-04-20

I've used Bill4Time for more than 5 years, and they have continually worked to adapt and add additional features. It is a very good product.

Pros

Bill4Time is very intuitive, and the customer support staff are responsive and very easy to work with.

Cons

Bill4Time is great at tracking time and providing reports for the time and invoices, but it is not a full scale CRM.

Bill4time has simplified our billing process and made it much more efficient.

2017-10-05

better productivity

Pros

To be able to input time or review billing productivity from any location or device has made more efficient use of my firm management time.

Cons

The cost of the software is more than we have paid with past systems, but it pays for itself because we spend less administrative time and lose less billing time due to the ability to record time from mobile devices.

Bill4Time is worth your time

2017-11-28

Avoiding the time it takes to move timekeeping records into an accounting program every month is a fantastic feature!

Pros

It is intuitive and is easy to figure out if you've made an error anywhere in your accounting.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve to the invoicing section but once it's set up you'll be grateful.

Pros

Bill4Time has easy to use LEDES invoicing, and great reporting functions, and you can specify the data you want to focus on.

Cons

We've been using the service for over 4 years and earlier on, there was some funkiness involved when trying to create an invoice; however, they've appeared to fix this.

The perfect fit

2020-01-11

It's been a life saver in that I can easily and conveniently produce supporting documentation as to my out of pocket expenses and time in administering this estate as well as bill for and account for my time and expenses in my Paralegal/Investigation firm which makes getting paid much easier and with no hassle because the invoices and statements are detailed, clear and easy for my clients to understand.

Pros

Additionally, I love the convenience of being able to create and produce a customized report for any given request for information once an entry has been created and entered.

Cons

I haven't found anything thus far that I don't like about the software.

Bill4Time: Less time on billing.

2018-09-14

I have saved a lot of money by using this software, and I would have otherwise had to spend a lot of time and money.

Pros

There are multiple configurations that each client can have depending on the fee structure, and I have never had a problem with creating a billing agreement that could not be expressed in this software.

Cons

It is difficult to finalize the invoices, and occasionally, the software will have issues selecting which client to finalize an invoice for.

Bill4Time

2019-10-07

Pros

The best feature is that you can see all of your unbilled clients on one page, how much you have not billed them, etc.

Cons

The only thing i have noticed is that Smokeball billing has more features, but for me those extra features are not necessarily needed so I like the simplicity of Bill4Time.

Easy to use, essential tool

2020-01-02

Our company counts on B4T for its time keeping and billing. If we would not have a tool like this, we would miss out on a lot of time not invoiced, or expenses not rebilled.

Pros

It's easy to use and web based.

Cons

Can't think of anything about the software, it works perfectly. It is not cheap, that is maybe the only thing.
