Pros: Easy to manage. It allows to create many clients/projects/tasks, each with its own price/hour or per project. You can pause the clock if you want to take a break and just continue afterwards. I use it a lot, even with just the free version.

Cons: Instead of colored circles to recognize projects easier, it could color the whole tab of the project. Also, making other colors more differentiated available would make easier to recognize projects. Monthly registers of time (not just weekly)

Overall: Easily manage my time on projects, create automatic summary reports at the end of the month.

SW increased efficiency of my firm.

Pros: I like the app on my iphone. Other pros are: cloud-base service , billing module, it is for free.....

Cons: Sometimes I cannot create a client report in google chrome. I would appreciate an option to have a "global rate" - not to set up rate for each client....

Overall: Efficiency

Hi Jind¿ich, thanks for the great review! If you have a global rate for all customers, you can define a global rate on an activity. Here is a detailed article about how primaERP counts the hourly rates: https://primaerp.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/325101-how-does-primaerp-price-a-time-record

Pros: I like the possibility of generating different projects. So it is easier for me to track my time and just chose the right project. And on the end of the month I can make a quick check how I spent my time.

Cons: Sometimes I have to wait a lot of time until all my projects are shown. Especially when I want to change the weeks. Maybe you should develop some more possible analyses (also connected with different graphics).

Overall: Save time in time tracking

Pros: The software is best for its visual time tracking features. This is why I prefer it to other software. I also use this feature to plan the week. I can see all my tracked time in reports, so I can easy track my productivity plus those of my employees. And of course I can see how much time I spent on my projects. The billing feature is also great for calculating bills for your clients.

Cons: I really miss that I can't really plan a project. I would be great to have the ability to assign tasks with a suggestet max. duration. I think primaERP could learn a lot from Harvest, Asana or Timley. Also I really miss native Windows 10 (or Mac) Apps and proper iOS versions!

Overall: Better overview on projects and my time.

Pros: great free hourly time tracking + bill calculation program, lets me sort projects by client. allows me to archive projects once they're finished.

Cons: these are little buggy/ UX issues, but you have to click through too many times to change hours logged for a specific day, and sometimes the time will re-set if you try to type in the hours/min area when logging, so it's a bit annoying.

Overall: It's helped me keep track of project billing for my design/video/web clients. Would def recommend!

Very good software, simple, powerful tool for managing time and projects.

Pros: A time-out on the projects, an overview of the prices and, above all, the possibility to immediately debit the work for the client. She keeps me in work camp and everything else does for me. Excellent control, simple and purposeful design. I warmly recommend!

Cons: Not much. Perhaps the biggest problem I have with myself is to run the program before I start working :-)

Overall: High labor productivity and time savings in order administration.

PrimaERP helps me to track my work/projects for my customers. It is very easy, reliable and smart.

Pros: The best feature I guess is reporting. The possibility to use reports on different levels (e.g. team, project, personal or "over all") is really great. I use reporting every single month to get an overview about my working hours for my customers and to see what I have to charge to my customers.

I also use PrimaERP to track work which I cannot charge (e.g. short phone calls, paperwork, etc.). This gives me an overview about the amount of "not billable" workload every single month in order to see how efficient my work is. And it is easy. Just click on report, select "non billable" report and there it is... cool!

Cons: Sometimes, the response times are little slow.
Time tracking on smartphone/tablets are not so smart... I always use the website since I work on my desktop every day. But a smart app would be cool :)

A Good Tool to capture the daily work times for several Projects.

Pros: You can nicely see and manage your work hours. Inputting time and date is easy and straightforward. Comprehensive reports.

Cons: Refreshing after I leave the window open trough night. I would like some ability to set default time, if there is none. Like my typical working hours or so.

Overall: Better management of my work time

Pros: First things first: We're a team of two software developers with about 4 main customers and many different projects. We have fixed prices projects as well as different hour rates which mostly depend on the customer but sometimes also on a specific project.
We initially choose primaERP because we wanted a free tool and primaERP is free for a team of up to 3 people.
primaERP fits to all our needs: we can create customers, projects, activities (with individual hour rates) and book our work on that. And it does that with a very intuitive since more than 4 years.
It has great filtering possibilities to show us exactly the figures we're interested in.
Also we can export a report for our customers with the exact pricing and descriptions we entered for each booked hour.

Cons: The only cons are not really showstoppers but it would be nice if they got fixed/optimized:
- I usually have primaERP open in a fixed tab in my browser (all the time). When I want to book hours after a day of work I click on the "+" Button but then it get the info that the session expired and reloads the complete page. Thats a bit annoying
- We export monthly reports for our customers as PDF. That works good, but you would not win a design price for the layout of those reports. It would be great if I could just select which columns I need to export. For example: I filter on the customer and then export, but the name of the customer is still in each booking row.

My team loves this system - easy to learn, easy to use and they can generate their own hours report.

Pros: I enjoy that the reports lets me select 'unassigned' in order to see where the gaps are in the weekly hours. Billing software is easy and I love that I can customize which fields on the invoice I want seen.

Cons: I don't like that there is no capability to modify records in bulk (i.e. the client field). I also wish there was a feature to send messages to my users (i.e. a splash screen or chat) on filling out their time records or tips for them based on how I see their system being used.

Overall: This software cuts down on how much time I spend dividing time to clients and my invoices look so much more professional than if I did it myself!

Hi Michelle, thanks for great your review! You mentioned that there is " no capability to modify records in bulk " In fact, the function is there. In Dashhoard > Team Overview > Table view you can move time records to other projects and do other bulk changes. Hope this will make your life easier! Check the blog article about that: http://blog.primaerp.com/2017/05/bulk-changes-how-to-transfer-time.html

Pros: Offers a lot of time tracking (android app included) flexibility & project management for free! Very straight-forward in use, and the reporting is pretty diverse. Works really well for independent contracting.

Cons: I wish the project management was integrated with email, like creating tasks automatically. Customizing invoices with CSS and subtasks or KanBan style boards would also be nice.

Overall: I have looked at lot's and lot's of time tracking/project managment/invoicing apps on the web and none have been able to replace the value (free) for what I use primaERP for.

Pros: PrimaERP is easy to use, free for small business and can almost do anything I want. I can fav my most used projects and can switch between them very easily. The design of PrimeERP is inviting and I have multiple fuctions to track my time, income and projects. If you invest little time in setting up your projects/costumers/data it will really safe you a lot of time. There's also a handy app for the one's, who like to track their time on their mobile phone.

Cons: What I'm missing is a feature to set up a monthly budget for projects. That would help for long-ranged projects which with monthly billing. Unfortunately, PrimaERP doesn't cover this function.

Overall: Easy and precise time tracking, good overview of my data.

Hi Aaron, than you for the review! You are missing a feature to set up a monthly budget for long-term projects. You can create a "template" project with the usual monthly budget and to copy it every month.
