Pros
This software is so much better than the previous software we used in the past. Its simple and easy to access and review reporting.

Cons
I don't like that with using a MAC I have to expand the screen to sumbit things.

FinancialForce Helped Streamline My Billing Process

Review Source: Capterra

FF PSA allowed me to create and bill projects from the quotes and opportunities from our sales team, it helped combine multiple processes that existed before.

Pros
I like that FF allowed me to bill directly from projects we created in Salesforce. Previously we had separate systems and it was time consuming. I also like that we are able to customize our project fields and opportunities. I also use the report creating tool a lot.

Cons
I sometimes have limitations with specific auto calculations it runs, but they are few at this point.

Pros
Lots of tools in the toolbag. There is no doubt this product has lots of features and can help businesses cover many of a project management office's needs including project reporting and planning; timecard entry and management and status reporting. It is a matrix organisation's wet dream giving lots of opportunities for different horizontals and verticals to organise and crunch the data in their own specific ways. Custom reports are good and I like the dashboards if you can find enough data fields to actually drive what you need.

Cons
This product is so infuriating to work with for any length of time. I use this as both Project Manager and a user. It has just enough functionality to make you hopeful you can do what you need and then crushes that hope. Here is a quick run of the major (dis)functions: 1. It uses a web browser - chrome is just about OK, Firefox works in some parts but not others, Internet Explorer does not work. Because it uses a browser it is easy for IT departments to deploy (i.e. cheap) and is a dreadful experience to use. 2. Timecard entry is for a complete week and requires comments for each project/task/day combination. It is not a bad solution but is not great either. 3. The creators seem to push the idea of having resource managers in your business requiring project managers to create resource requests which then lead to assignments on projects. Whilst there is nothing inherently wrong with this requires so many more steps (and people) than is necessary, which introduces complexity and delays. 4. The Project Task Gantt view is the fibrillating heart of the tool and is so annoying I find it hard to get the words out. There is no useful integration with MS Project so you are forced to gouge away trying to use the functionality. You need to save constantly, the view of the tasks jumps backwards in time so you lose your focus, the task tree expands every time you save. In short it is SO frustrating to work with. Save yourself this nightmare - run Forest run!

PSA has some great features and is built on Salesforce!

Pros
The fact it is built on Salesforce and has direct integration to CRM/Sales Cloud. Timesheet entry and expenses are pretty good.

Cons
Support is very poor, take a long time to respond and Level 1 support team could have more knowledge. Implementation is very complicated and would almost be impossible without professional services.

Amazing Features

Review Source: Capterra

We are using our PSA for time reporting. There are so many additional features like resource requests, project scheduling, and overall project management that we are beginning to explore. We are also setting up our skills management module this quarter, which will allow us to improve utilization within our team.

Pros
I appreciate how PSA links with SalesForce and our customer support modules. As a "superuser" I have all the information that I need at my fingertips. I can address questions from different teams (i.e., sales, support, consultants). I also have files and supporting documentation at a click of a button.

Cons
The software isn't very intuitive and can't be installed out of the box and utilized in a day. It takes a few weeks to get accustomed to the functionality, but can take months to explore all of the features. They do have an AMAZING support community. I found that have a relationship with the customer success manager to be most helpful.

Benefits

Some of the best service companies in the industry are leveraging the FinancialForce PSA solution to help them achieve dramatic results quickly and gain competitive advantage definitively.

Sales and services teams work in the same system, using the same information in a collaborative working environment when using FinancialForce Professional Services Automation (PSA). Processes flow naturally from sales to services, yet both teams have complete visibility to the whole project life cycle.

Flexible Billing & Invoicing
FinancialForce.com understands that one size does not fit all when it comes to billing and that most billing problems are caused well before the invoice is printed. FinancialForce PSA prevents downstream problems by instilling controls at the beginning of the process. It all starts with a flexible approval processes for timecards, expenses and milestones that ensure the right people are involved early in the billing process.

Time & Expense Management
FinancialForce PSA provides three intuitive ways to enter timecards. First, you can enter time in a grid by week, selecting milestones and entering your notes easily. Consultants can enter time for multiple projects per timecard, decreasing the number of cards that need to be submitted. Second, if consultants are on the same project week to week, they can simply copy from the previous week, paste or modify specific hours and submit. The third time entry method allows the consultant to copy their scheduled hours for the week and submit a timecard with a single click of a button.
