"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.

What Project-Based ERP solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"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

"All About Ajera"

What do you like best?

The newest update allows emailing invoices and customization of invoice templates which will be a great time saver for us. The customization of invoice templates is also of interest to us and we are looking forward to experimenting with this new feature.

What do you dislike?

The version of Ajera we use only runs with Internet Explorer. I am unable to log in from my phone. We could also use more details on contact records (multiple address and email capability)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If at all possible, schedule time at a training session for Ajera. Several of our employees were able to go to a multi-day training, and felt like they benefited from it.

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

AJERA helps us keep our projects and billing all in one place. Within the last several years, we've worked on adding attachments of contracts, insurance certificates and W9s to our vendor, client and project records so all of that information is readily available to project managers. We have been slow as a company to utilize a lot of the other features AJERA has to offer.

"Excellent software for construction management & payroll"

What do you like best?

Ajera makes it very easy to enter time (with notes) and submit timesheets, even remotely. This is a big help as we have several employees out in the field for extended periods of time.

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was an easier way to organize large groups of information so that we could create a catalog of project information including descriptions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ajera has a variety of different options to suit any business. It takes a little time to utilize all the features, but they are always available to provide additional help.

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

Ajera provides an all in once place to search for project info, input new projects, pull reports and input time.

What do you like best?

ERP / CRM, everything about the business are in here.

"Functional"

What do you like best?

The layout is straight forward and easy to navigate. Many operations are very similar, making it easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Creating projects has been a learning experience

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the trial period to really work out how you want projects set up. All the phases can get crazy when it comes to billing.

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

Time and project management have improved. It is easy to track the progress of a project or view employee time sheets.

It is easy to keep track of time and keep track of invoices sent out.

Excellent program to use and very easy to use! Highly recommend!

"In-Depth coverage "

What do you like best?

The user interface isn't intimidating to me, but then again, I am somewhat computer savvy.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features you have to have intense training on. I am with small firm and we probably only use about 30% of the software features, but it seems that when training webinars occur, there are lots of questions.

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

We needed a software that provided all aspects of the accounting side, but then we realized we were lacking in our previous software in being able to track other things. It has been a good software to have, because now we can keep accountable on capital limits, and other items we previously didn't have implemented in our software.

"Financial Administrator"

What do you like best?

Not having to "post" transaction after data entry

What do you dislike?

Not being able to back out transactions without leaving a trail. In Vision, all we do is "unpost" and it makes our GL look so much cleaner and easier to follow transactions. Have debits and credits gets confusing when all we need to do was make a simple correction.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pay for extra training

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

Proper costing on projects
