"Works well for several timekeepers"

What do you like best?

It's nice that everyone can input information simultaneously, without affecting the other timekeeper's entries. Definitely more effective/efficient than a spreadsheet when you have multiple people working on the same files consistently.

What do you dislike?

It's bulky. It would be nice if there was an option to have just the time manager open in the tray, or maybe even a "right click" to enter a new entry. It would also be nice if there were codes - similar to in excel, having an additional row to designate different billing entries for different purposes or rates (like code "1" would be for real estate purchase of 123 Brown Street, but code "2" would be for 456 Orange Street, so the different costs could be separated easier)

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

The billing records are cleaner, it's easier to keep track of where all the time goes and how many hours are being billed per person per day, which makes it a lot easier to track billing and productivity.

"Takes Some Getting Used to But a Very Thorough System"

What do you like best?

The multitude of features is great. It is more than just a time-entry system. The contacts functionality is intuitive and easy to update. From there, initiating conflicts checks is also easy. On the backend, the ability to see nearly real-time accounting data, like payments received, A/R balances, and distributions, is really helpful, though implementation of it took a little while.

What do you dislike?

The desktop version is a little clunky. As a Mac user, I must fire up MS Remote Desktop before I can get into the app (which I suspect is seamless on PCs). But the iPhone app makes up for that. It is extremely helpful to have the ability to enter time immediately through the iPhone app while onsite with clients. And, at least it can be used with Macs.

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

As our firm has doubled in a relatively short period of time, the need for a more comprehensive time-entry system that tied back to our accounting systems and provided visibility to all partners 24/7 was key. It was a bit of rocking rollout, but most partners, including me, now love it. And even those who had some issues had them, I suspect, because there was just so much functionality and a lot to learn.

"Adequate for time tracking"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of choosing a time frame for tracking billable hours.

What do you dislike?

The Smart Timers are a major inconvenience, having to make sure I stop one before I start another.

"Easy to use!"

What do you like best?

Orion is easy to use and can create multiple reports and summaries

What do you dislike?

What I dislike the most about the program is that it does not have a mobile app and that would be helpful if you work from home or the car.
