Troubleshooting? Or just trouble?

What do you like best?

The user interface is easy to navigate through, has a reasonable amount of functioning options that let one track business, statements, invoices, and employee time.

What do you dislike?

The interface does not work well, there are too many issues that block off certain functions from happening. Meaning valuable information is not able to be extracted or analyzed. Also, the fact that everything is a new tab instead of having it in an analytic form (or having the option to do so) is quite frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know your needs first hand, ask the tough questions and layout what you need from this software and/or its accompanying features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of having ajera is having a system that connects all data bases. However, more problems are currently arising with the nonfunctioning and slow troubleshooting updates of ajera. We've realized that having this sort of system in place for our business is highly important with its minor analytic properties, but unsure if ajera is able to keep up with its own software.

Great Experience with this Program

What do you like best?

It's user friendly, tabs are easily laid out so it is easy to find just what you are looking for.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes a while to load and there are multiple screens that pop up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is an easy program to use, it has specific tabs for time, generating reports for all of the projects you have saved and can bill hours to. It also allows for tracking personal/vacation/sick hours and you can print your time sheets right from the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking project hours and billing towards a project. Also keeps track of hours of a work day, personal time, sick days, vacation days, and if you are in training for your job.

Good program and has been developing over the years

What do you like best?

Good for tracking project hours and billing. The program has been getting many upgrades since around the time it was bought out by Deltek. The program has much improved (as I wasn't happy at the beginning) and the cost isn't as high as some of its competitors. Customer service is in the US, so there haven't been language issues.

What do you dislike?

We were Deltek Wind2 users prior to Ajera, and it had many capabilities that I still don't have in Ajera but there have been many improvements/upgrades made since then. Finance charges handling still has room for improvement, as you still can't run an invoice for finance charges only. And finance charges aren't included on statements, which is an issue. I have to do a work-around which involves many steps in order for finance charges to show on statements. Ajera also does not do well with the HR side of the business. It doesn't give you alerts when employees' reviews come up and it isn't good at tracking history other than having to enter notes on their record.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do a thorough review of the software package to make sure it has all the capabilities you require. Do comparisons, as cost isn't the only factor of a good product fit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Billing and collections.. It's a good program for billing hours or fixed fee projects, and many other types of projects. There is flexibility for billing projects, so it's good for a business using many billing types.

Great concept, but some trivial issues are holding it back.

What do you like best?

Easy to organize time into the correct project and phase, and get reports showing how time is being used across everyone on a project.

What do you dislike?

It's "cloud-based" but still requires software to be installed on a computer, rather than being native html. The requirement of ONLY using Internet Explorer is also ridiculous. It's an aging web browser that has even been replaced with Edge by Microsoft. There are numerous small annoyances such as tabbing/entering through the table, filters are clunky at best, and the loading times between each screen are frustrating. There is no native app for Android or iOS, instead it is an incredibly simplified website, which only allows for entering time, and nothing more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is slowly becoming a good option, but is still being held back by many small issues and annoyances.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moving from the old Deltek Timekeeper was a big leap, and we've been able to get much more data about where we are spending time on projects and budget accordingly.

Ajera Software

What do you like best?

The Ajera software is a great software for small firms who are ready to take the next step in project management. It is very customization, and has a great credit card import feature. The support is very helpful and willing to listen to your opinions as they improve upon the software.

What do you dislike?

While I highly recommend the software, the program's schedule manager has some room for improvement. It does not have a priority rating. However, there are work arounds, if this is a must for your firm.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Join the users group before you go live for third party advise on the software. Do not jump into the software before your administrators are comfortable with it. It is a very large software. Listen to the advise of the consultant.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ajera has cut reconciling our 20 credit cards down to a few hours with their credit card import feature. It has also decreased the administrative time needed for client invoicing, and allows our accounts payable to easily keep track of the many invoices that need paid.

Great Accounting and Project Management software

What do you like best?

Snapshot feature for tracking budgets in real time, integrated timesheet & expenses, Deltek app for expense reports

What do you dislike?

profitability and other metrics can only be tracked over life of a project--not necessarily by year or quarter (we have several multi-year projects), unless given separate invoice groups or project numbers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrated timesheet and expense entries, budget/profit tracking, integrated project timeline/scheduling
