Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.
The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.
Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Pros

ActiTIME helps to show you your and your employees working hours clear and structured. It even has some more features for a better overview so we can just recommend it to everyone.
It is easy to use, has user friendly interface, easy to manage. The best of the this application is the ability to use it on mobile devices.
I can open it anytime I need to see the performance of my employees or issue the incoice for my clients. I would recommend actiTIME - good quality for cheap price.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.
Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.
Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

Cons

The sync function can stop functioning at the most inconvenient times.
Maybe it is the way the company admin decided to set it up, but I dislike being able to only enter one day at a time. I would prefer to enter my entire week at a time.
There is no learning curve involved: you can start working with it right away. We set up our clients and projects in no time, and the next day the team was already tracking time there.

actiTIME

Great for detailed time tracking

Reviewed 6 years ago

We've been using Actitime within our practice for approx 4 years now. During that time the development of the app has definitely made things easier. It allows a good level of detail through the tracking a client, product and task level. It is starting to feel a little clunky and dated compared to newer products, in particular when creating a report or a new task. We've trialed newer products recently but decided to remain with Actitime. However as we are getting more and more of our practice into cloud based apps I think we'll eventually be looking for a more integrated solution. Although Actitime integrates with QuickBooks it does not currently integrate with Xero.

Pros

Good amount of detail in both tracking and reporting. App makes tracking easier. Simple to use.

Cons

Not very integrated with other practice software. User interface starting to feel a little dated and clunky compared to others.
