Pros
We have employees with a range of computer skills, it's important that we had software that was easy to use and Abtrac comes to the party with professional setup, training and support. Abtrac's time tracking software allows us to manage projects, track employee hours and monitor expenses easily you don't need an extensive education to use this software it is easy to use with the added benefit of being web-based. You can generate standard reports or filter reports to your required specifications for time spent on projects, tasks, budgets, hours, expenses and invoice virtually putting together whatever you require from the reporting functions. I have no hesitation in recommending this software, we have been using Abtrac for over 15 years and moved to the web based system over a year ago and although Abtrac was completely re-written for the web based system our staff have had no problems re-learning their way around.

Cons
To be honest there really isn't much that I don't like about Abtrac and I struggle to think of any cons. The only thing I can come up with would be that being web based you rely on the speed of the internet for opening new tabs or when entering details at data entry speed it can sometimes be a hindrance but for the every day user I'm not sure this would not affect them and the functionality certainly out weighs this.

Having a reliable package and knowing if you have a problem the help desk is always there and only too happy to help out with anything or find a solution

Pros
Getting to everything, enjoying the Cloud version now I'm used to it. It all flows really well and enjoying not having to jump in and out of functions, opening a new browser is really good.

Cons
Sometimes a bit of a pause when the internet isn't going well. Having to log in when you've been doing something else is a bit of a pain at times.

Response from Abtrac


Hi Ann,
Thanks for your review. We have now implemented the quick login screen so that you don't lose any work if you have been logged out of the system. I wish we could but unfortunately we can't do anything about the internet speed in your offices. Please contact us if you have anything else.
Thanks
Will

Saves time when preparing invoices, and includes disbursements automatically.

Pros
Able to generate invoices from timesheet comments Easy to use client data base Keeps a record of employees' time: leave, admin, seminar, etc. Easy program for new employees to use Costs/disbursements are automatically added to invoices Employee time can be added or subtracted when preparing invoices, and holds unbilled time

Cons
The system "saves" too often -e.g. when entering timesheet entries, disbursements The desk top version had a report that is not available in cloud version: Fees Earned by Employee and JOB and Invoice. Adding addresses is confusing - e.g. if you use the post code line, it does not come up in the address

Accurate project costing against budget.

Pros
Captures all data relating to a project in one place; flexible invoicing by time engaged or % complete on a customised invoice; good tracking and reporting on budgets and sub-consultant costs.

Cons
It does save a bit too often on time sheet entry, and can run a bit slow over the internet sometimes when querying the database.

Response from Abtrac


Hi Caroline, thanks for your review

As I mentioned on the phone there is the setting at the bottom of all the different time-sheet pages that allows you to select the frequency of saving with a simple tick box.
I hope this helps and feel free to call if you want.
Regards
Will

Reporting / time keeping / project staff & team planning and programming / profitability analysis / resource management / WIP analysis / unbilled time capturing / improved profitability. Biggest benefit - control!

Pros
Ease of use. Capturing every billable minute. Allowing us to gauge profitability of both projects and people enables programming, and resource allocation. We are only just beginning to realize the potential of this invaluable tool. Wonderful Abtrac staff to work with. The technical staff are excellent - professional, knowledgeable, patient, efficient and extremely helpful.
