Pros

As for timer, it's dominating your screen, so it saves me from distractions of all kinds. Overall, what I like the best about this software is the blend of simplicity and feature-rich functionality.
Paymo is a combination of some kind of CRM and PM tool. It's good we can track budgets and payments, and also great integration with slack.
Easy to implement and to use. I can add as many projects as I want, tasks, view these in different formats, and never undercharge again thanks to the awesome time tracker.

Pros

I really admire it beautiful it helps me in tracking the time and essentially to ensure productivity of work in a much more convenient way.
Packs a lot for the pricing. We are super satisfied with the product and excellent customer service.
The one that I like the most about this software is the quality of service versus to the cost. As I found, it is one of the best in the market.

Cons

As for its negative side, it should be taken into account that paymo does not track the cost of each project directly on the fly.
The filters can get confusing, sometimes its to many filters or not enough.
This buffers a lot and has many technical errors.

Cons

The lack of integration means that sometimes members of our team have to ping-pong between both products, or fail to understand what's happening there.
Lack of integration with Git or another version of control system.
The time logging structure was also a pain point compared to alternate software options we've since pursued.

Paymo

Great platform for project management

Reviewed 8 years ago

I've been testing and using different platforms during the last years, including planbox, wrike, producteev, activecollab, asana and and others (some years ago I even build my own PM application). But Paymo absolutely stands out, it has a complete set of feature, much more cheaper than wrike and with an awesome support. The application is fast, intuitive, includes time tracking per task, and even a desktop application for unnatended time tracking. The only missing feature frmo my point of view is know what the other team member is working on! But you know what? Is easy to request new features to developers! they are always listening for suggestions! this is the best and most important piece of software for project management. PERIOD!

Need to improve communicatino between members, need to improve streams of activity, would be really cool to know in which task another team member is currently working and for how long.

ActiveCollab

Great PM product from a progressive and adapting company.

Reviewed 7 years ago

When we first started with Active Collab (2 years ago), we we're so excited by the offering. I had tried tons of PM softwares - Mavenlink, Wrike, Trello, Basecamp, 10,000ft, Podio, Asana, Paymo - you name it and I had spent a few weeks with it. When we came into activecollab, we found it to be almost tailored to our exact needs. Project management with time tracking, project budgeting and estimating/invoicing...
