  • The screenshot is vulnerable, as it contents some live online code and can be fatal in the wrong hand, I stopped using it. I need a tutorial to learn how to use report, which is a waste of my time.Debjit B.Read the full review

Response from Hubstaff


Hello! Thank you for your review. We do have annual plans that are discounted, which can help with the cost. You get two months free with those (16% discount). Because you get 12 months for the price of 10 month, it is a good way to save money.

It is also possible to get up to 100% off your bill by referring other customers. You can receive 10% off for a year for each paying customer you refer. So it is very possible to get our software for free.

You can learn more about how this works here:

Additionally we provide 30% discounts to nonprofits.

Overall Hubstaff is awesome. It does everything we need at a price we can afford. I've recommended it to multiple business owners of remote teams and they've loved it as well.

Pros
- Simple to setup - Very affordable - Lots of added functionality beyond just time tracking - User app is great

Cons
- Extra functionality can be a bit expensive - I wish it had more integrations for payment options

Response from Hubstaff


Hi Jay,
Thanks for your feedback!

I understand that our current payment options may be limited for some users.
However, if you contact our support team with more details as to what payment options you are looking for we would be happy to submit a feature request to our developers for you.

Thanks again,

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
1. Able to view screen shots of work being accomplished and able to ask my designer, before they even send it, to do a modification. It is like being right next to them, even though they are in another country! 2. Payroll is very easy process. 3. Can determine whether employee is working or pretending to work. Makes them accountable for their hours and work.

Cons
1. Cost is a bit high and would like to see package pricing at a more reasonable price. For start up companies, like ourselves, every penny counts . 2. At times, screen shots do not work, but 98% of the time , that is not an issue.

Review Source: Capterra

We've always had prompt response by the HS staff when we've had a question. For the price, the program is easy to use, and provides the comprehenvsive reporting needed for tracking employee contributions and accurate job costing.

Pros
We've enjoyed the ability to use for our remote employees, whether they are working from home offices or at job sites. The mobile app tracks location, included in the price. Other services we've used in the past charge extra for this feature.

Cons
We had to realign the way we thought the software would work to give us the information as we were seeking, which includes the project and the stage of the work, but once we did that initial change in set up, the reporting has been exactly as we need.

The cost for where our company resides can be quite in the high tier, thus we cannot afford to use the premium subscription one (currently on the standard subscription)

Review Source: Capterra

Reduced costs and increased productivity. We're also about to use it as a sales tool, increasing transparency with our customers.

Pros
The random screenshots are amazing! While it's rare I find time to check them, the threat of knowing they're there means more honest time logging from freelancers. In the first month I saw my monthly expected freelancer bills (across 8 freelancers) drop by over 30%! It's highlighted an issue with one freelancer in particular and prompted a staff change.

Cons
It is quite expensive and I wish it was more affordable so that I could roll it out to people that only do a few hours a month for me.
