Adrian Sole

Finally, have control of where we are spending our time and whats going to come in $$ wise!

2018-02-06

Visibility, productivity and efficiencies and it's all real-time!

Pros

Cloud-based, finally can see all projects in one place and how much are they worth and how are we tracking against the project value, we use it like 'lite' CRM to manage sales leads and simple pipeline and if we win it, very easy to convert it to an active project, it's easy to use, no training really required flexible and amazing customer service!

Cons

Not much as it keeps getting better all the time, still needs more standard reports and maybe a report builder.

Great project management app

2017-07-12

Improved project and retainer management.

Pros

Integration with Xero accounting software, management of retainers, quote and invoice creation, time tracking and logging, very reactive support team who apply requested fixes within days.

Cons

Sometimes screens load slowly, occasionally staff collides and project settings are not saved, products can be added to invoices but there is no overall products list to save as templates.

Integral software for my day to day managing of projects and the business

2018-01-21

A time saver, I do all the management of my business and projects in one places, so it gives clarity easily, and saves me time and headspace trying to juggle the information.

Pros

The two main functions I use Roll for is time tracking and invoicing. This is done so easily in Roll, and I have come to rely on the constant use of these.

Cons

I would like to see more in-your-face reporting that follows you around or prompts you.

Roll is simply cost effective time management software

2018-01-30

Better time management Ability to charge out on time spent on projects without the guesswork Ability to provide clients with time sheet where necessary Send out invoices from Roll if necessary, but use Xero so it integrates perfectly

Pros

Roll assists in creating the real time spent on projects, which translates in using time management more wisely.

Excellent......highly recommended

2018-02-06

Better business management that is scaleable

Pros

This is the only real option for SMEs who want Leads/Timesheets/Projects/Billing all in the same place without having to jump between apps.

Cons

Would also be good to have an Android App and integration with WaveApp (online accounting).

I use Roll to manage projects, track time spent and manage clients in my Graphic Design Business.

2018-01-28

Pros

Time tracking seems to be working well for me too, and as I often skip from one job to another during the day, the Multi-timers to track my time for several projects is great.

Cons

Also, I'm not a big fan of how the 'invoice this month' fields works as I find it confusing and the options given don't always suit my projects.

Roll is great to work with I can't imagine running the business without it now.

2018-02-02

And finally, I love the simple billing system that integrates with Xero and generates invoices directly from unbilled time on each project or directly from approved quotes.

Pros

Great balance between the financial side of the business and project management.

Invoicing & Xero integration, lead & client management, time tracking & task management in one tool.

2018-01-18

The time saving, high-level focus on my business and performance stats are invaluable to a growing Auckland Digital Marketing and Social Media Company.

Pros

RollHQ has transformed my time recording, workflow and billing process.

Cons

The only thing I would like to see from RollHQ is having the ability to send tasks to Roll via email.

Roll is a super useful bit of software for tracking complicated projects across different stages.

2018-01-30

Pros

Xero isn't strong at tracking project financials, so to be able to manage these easily in Roll, but still manage the invoicing and costing part in Xero is hugely useful.

Cons

No API (I know they are working on it) which limits it's ability to work with other bits of software.

Roll was recommended to me for my startup business. The software and support is excellent.

2018-01-22

It's saving me time and money.

Pros

Customer Support and Ease of use. I've been in business over 21 years and this software has really improved how efficiently I can manage projects from start to finish. I like that you can enter a job lead even before it is a reality.

Cons

I would like to see more a more comprehensive reports made available regarding its time-keeping.

We implemented Roll at the start of 17, now it's an indispensable part of our architectural practice

2018-01-30

Better organisation, systemisation and delegation of workflow, leading to profitability and less stress.

Pros

Suitable out of the box for our industry and workflow. The interface is simple and intuitive, with multiple ways to achieve the same results.

Cons

Because it's early in its development, some features which you know could be implemented are yet to be developed.

Super easy to use and gives me all the features I need to manage my work.

2018-02-04

Pros

I love the Dashboard that shows me how much money I've got coming in in the next few months!

Cons

One thing I would like to see on the Dashboard is my past earning (not just my predicted future earnings).

2018-02-02

easy to track and manage my team - drastically reduced the time spent catalogueing and setting up projects.

Pros

Drag & Drop and intuitive UI/UX rarely leaves me confused how to complete a task.

Cons

Sometimes the timer functionality will glitch out and freeze, not assign the time to the project etc.

Roll helps me to keep organised with job tracking and makes invoicing so much easier!

2018-02-02

Roll keeps me organised with job tracking and makes invoicing so much easier at the end of the month!!

Pros

The ease with which you can track job hours, keep a record of client information and invoice at the end of the month

Cons

It has some limitations - I would like to be able to log a 50% upfront payment, then show this has already been paid on the final invoice. I operate my business from home and always have around 10 jobs or less, so a cheaper monthly rate for small businesses like mine would be very helpful.

Has helped streamline the management projects

2018-01-30

Timekeeping and a better way to do quotes and invoices.

Pros

Being able to keep an accurate record of the time spent on each job, especially when a job starts and stops a lot.

Cons

Also don't love the Performance/Time page because when you click on a particular project that hasn't been billed it takes you away from that week to the actual project and then you have to navigate back again to the exact week you were looking at in performance.

Great software which integrates well with Xero

2018-01-30

Xero integration was primary benefit was seeking - for purchases as well as invoices

Pros

I really like the Xero integration for purchases as well as invoices. Lots of features.

Cons

Maybe a little complicated for technologically challenged? I don't really consider this a serious con however.

Increases efficiency, great support, easy to get the hang of

2018-01-30

Greater efficiencies

Pros

I love that ALL information about a project lives in the one area - you can see quotes, invoices, job notes, progress payments, and tasks from the one screen/panel and move between them all easily.

Cons

The tagging feature for coworkers is a little clunky sometimes, we miss comments to each other frequently as it seems to clear to quickly or dont notice things in here.

Love Roll - Was one of your earliest customers, and now one of your biggest fans

2018-01-31

More efficiency, fewer errors, better customer service, better sales lead follow up, more sales, more long term customers. Allowed me to run a team of managers, rather than having all the info in my head. More transparency and predictability over finances.

Pros

It was clearly designed with an understanding of how businesses run, and the stuff we need to know to do that efficiently.

Cons

A few little user niggles that make it a bit inefficient and irritating to use - this is just the reality of using an early-stage bit of software.
