The final piece of the puzzle

Reviewed 9 months ago

Cost Tracker is easy to use and so powerful in its ability to visualize what is otherwise commonly hidden in spreadsheets. The whole agency has a transparent view of the financial health of our projects and programmes and we can make faster more considered decisions

Pros

We use Cost Tracker to measure, and more importantly, visualise our profitability. We tried many tools but none integrated as seamlessly into the Atlassian ecosystem as Tempo. It’s great to have a Birdseye view of our costs across many projects and programmes and be able to distinguish between cost rates and billable rates.

Cons

Being an early release, I’m hoping the full suite of features from Tempo Budgets slowly makes it way over to Cloud and that Cost Tracker continues to evolve in a way that retains its user friendly interface that’s as useful for savvy users as it is non-technical stakeholders and sponsors

Easy time tracking, budgeting features with many advanced options

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Tempo was the only solution we found that we could configure to meet our fairly unique needs without any custom coding or development. It has tight Jira integration, reporting and analysis capabilities that we're still learning more about, and day-to-day usage is simple for the full team.

Cons

The only hard part was moving from Jira Server to Jira Cloud, but we were able to move server data to cloud as expected.

Vendor response

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Nate! We're very happy that you're finding Cost Tracker easy to use.

Pretty good

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Haven't gotten too far with implementation but early signs point to this working well.

Cons

Making sure that it works with the other plugins and processes we have set up to get the most from our data

Vendor response

Thanks for your input, Alex. As well as Cost Tracker's existing integration with Tempo Timesheets, you can look out for an integration with Tempo Planner coming soon!

Very simple to use

Reviewed 9 months ago

Good overall, but more features are needed

Pros

- Simple to install and configure - Charts are simple to read and understand

Cons

It does require some more functions like - managing support contracts' P&L - notifications when exceeding amount value - tracking non billable hours in the contract vs billable/revenue - more reporting

Complete feature set, a bit difficult to use at the beginning

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

We really like the plugin and it covers all our needs. The reporting is great and helps us to keep track of all the projects costs.

Cons

It's not super intuitive to configure. It really helps that docs are quite complete, but would help if the tool would be more intuitive or have a bit more of info on screen about how to configure.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review Mauricio! We're happy to hear that Cost Tracker is covering your needs. And thank you for your feedback on the configuration process, we aim to keep it as simple as possible. For an on-screen tour of the software, see https://youtu.be/9LyDFesyMv8

A few months in and we're very happy and expanding our use of Tempo

Reviewed a year ago

We've been very pleased with Tempo since first deploying it a few months ago. We're now expanding our use to include third parties and contractors working on shared projects for better metrics and streamlined payment.

Pros

Ease of use, pricing, integration with Jira and other systems, ability to export data.

Cons

We haven't found anything limiting our needs yet.

Vendor response

Thanks very much for taking the time to write this review Jim! It is great to hear that your team is happy with Cost Tracker and expanding its use.

Cost Tracker Review

Reviewed a year ago

Overall the product is easy to use, configured and understand.

Pros

The ability to place cost for both the resources and the billing rate are very important

Cons

The inability to have multiple filters to one cost tracker setup to give a complete picture is an issues. Also the manual grouping of issues within a cost tracker. The inability to track overall budget and projected cost and report on both. I would like to set up one cost tracker for example where the budget/Revenue may be 100K. The expected cost is 40K. I would like to see how much of the overall revenue amount is consumed at my bill rate and also see how much of my targeted cost is consumed as well. I would also like to be able to share information from cost tracker with out having grant admin right to indviduals that may not need to see certain resources by name and HR specifics like their hourly cost.

Vendor response

Thank you for your detailed review, Rashad! We are always working to improve our products and have a lot of relevant features on the roadmap already. We expect filter improvements on the project page in the next fall release, and other pages will be considered in future. Multi-select group functionality has been introduced recently to reduce manual work in the scope page. There is also a forecasting functionality coming, when Cost Tracker will integrate with Tempo Planner. Finally, permission improvements are expected in the end of year release.
