  • Great a tracking and keeping me focused

    Does an excellent job of tracking and breaking down billable hours for my work. Subliminally, it also helps to keep me focused and on task because I know that it is being tracked

    Pros : I'm able to log in my hours and describe what I have been working on so I don't have to worry about writing it down anywhere. It is extremely easy to use even for nontechnical people they really tried to make the product simple and useful.

    Cons : The pricing scheme isn't very flexible for casual freelance developers but for the agency setting it works perfectly.

    Probably one of the best Project Management & Billing Tools

    Harvest is for me one of the best online billing services that I have seen so far. Everything is so easy when using it! I mainly use it for project management but the billing function is excellent as well. It allows you to manage unlimited projects. You can assign employees and contractors and you can track the time and apply that time to your project.

    Pros : It integrates with Basecamp

    Cons : At the beginning I found it a little bit too difficult to use, I am not a very technical person.

  • High-quality time tracking software needs to be more than just a complicated stopwatch. Harvest is easy to use, yet it is a powerful way to manage employee hours and track projects. This web-based management application can go anywhere you go with full functionality. Harvest is an effective way to track your employees' time and expenses, as well as the progress of each company project.

    Harvest is one of the best online billing services we have seen for time- and project-based billing. Harvest can help you manage both billable and non-billable expenses across multiple projects. You will have the ability to assign employees and contractors to projects and track their progress against budgeted hours in real time.

  • Harvest seems to me to be a reasonably good solution for businesses which rely heavily on time tracking and want to bundle their time tracking and invoicing solutions. It will be particularly handy for freelancers and small companies which need to track time and expenses based on projects and tasks. While Harvest bills itself as time tracking software, it has reasonably good invoice and estimate support – better than some invoicing software.

  • With everything said and done, I love Harvest. Coming from someone who has used systems like Basecamp, Workamajig, Salesforce, and other project management systems to manage time, there is just something effortless about it.

    I could easily see this system working for larger organizations but at some point I am sure you may want to rely on more dedicated accounting solutions. However, if you’re a small-medium size business, I could easily see this working quite well. Especially, with the integration and add-on options available.

  • Great at tracking time and expenses

    What do you like best?

    Harvest requires no training to learn, and it is exceptional at tracking time and expenses. Harvest can track billable time easily and help you invoice your clients accurately. All Harvest accounts support unlimited clients, projects and invoices and can track time and expenses on most mobile devices.

    What do you dislike?

    The online accounting software does not manage inventory, and Harvest does not provide an option for processing payments. It also will not import bank feeds

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    If you primarily bill by time or provide a service, Harvest is the best! If you need to manage a lot of client information, inventory or payroll, you might want to continue looking.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Our firm was in need of efficently tracking billable time easily and which in turn helped us invoice our clients more accurately.

    Solid time tracking app with complete company-wide integration

    What do you like best?

    Very quick and easy to use desktop app. Allows you to use decimal or time-style time values (2.5 or 2:30) when entering time.

    The web app is very snappy and uses modern AJAX/JS technologies to give the feeling of native desktop app.

    Invoicing with time tracking integration is a huge convenience and there are a lot of settings for each project to be uniquely defined and tracked. Branding is available and it lets you customize your email sent for invoicing.

    Solid and prompt customer service rounds it up. They're very nice people to work with!

    What do you dislike?

    The desktop app could use a billable/non-billable grouping to help you understand your day's tasks better. I also don't like that it doesn't retain your signin details and have to login every few days or after a reboot.

    The pricing scheme isn't very flexible for casual freelance developers but for the agency setting it works perfectly.

    The UI for OSX hasn't yet received any modernization, especially with Yosemite's UI.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Great if you're a small to medium enterprise working with many projects at a time and wanting to help your project management team and financial officers out by better understanding the company's human resources' time spent.

    The desktop app is perfect for making it easier to adopt.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Time tracking with company-wide overview of time spent. It's effective when joined with burndown charts to understand how we are doing with budget and effort remaining.

    And for freelancing it's a perfect tool to better understand how I'm spending my time without guessing based on the clock, and to properly invoice clients.

  • Harvest is targeted on individuals or companies that run small or big businesses and that want to be better organized, allowing them to have a better control of the course that their business is following. Both companies and freelancers will find Harvest as something that will increase their efficiency and not just a mere application that just offers a smooth interface and detailed reports. Its usability, especially in the long term, is unquestionable.
