Pros

Since implementing Core, we have found that we have much better control over how our projects are managed, we are seeing much better performance data and are very happy with the product.
The QuickBooks integration is very stable and makes sense once you understand it. The user interface looks nice, is operationally smooth and is very responsive both in design and speed.
The product is stable and pretty straight forward to use and today after a long time I needed customer support. The response as always was excellent and the problem I was experiencing was resolved.

Pros

I look forward to continuing to work with representative with helping me grow my knowledge of the software and utilize all of the great functions Bigtime has to offer. Thank you representative.
I love that Big Time has the capability of integrating a variety of content that can help us organize systems and better perform.
My overall experience with BigTime has been great, the software is easy to use and navigate, and the customer support has been fast and helpful in answering any questions I have had.

Cons

Worst of all as above they have removed the functionality to record time offline on the mobile app as they have introduced a bug into the live environment.
I find the billing process steps a bit awkward but I am used to them now. It is annoying to have to look for the most recent invoice under Invoice Review once the invoice is processed as final.
Now, I can't get a copy of any old billing invoices unless I pay the renewal fee. I spoke with a manager and basically, it's not their problem because I no longer have a current subscription.

Cons

This makes it difficult to integrate BT invoicing directly into QB data. A problem made even more difficult given that all of our projects to date have been invoiced from QB.
Management denied my request. This is foolish, short sighted management.
Timesheets dont get easily submitted, it gives errors which causes submissions to fail.
