Avaza Software


 

Avaza is a cloud-based project management tool that allows organizations to track time, collaborate with team members and clients, bill customers and manage tasks. The solution can be accessed on any device including laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones. Project managers can divide big projects into manageable tasks and then assign these tasks to various team members with instructions, responsibilities and deadlines.

Avaza sends automatic email reminders for tasks that are due, ensuring all projects are delivered in a timely manner. The time tracking feature allows users to enter the hours spent on a project and send invoices to clients. Timesheets are also sent to managers for approval which gives them the ability to collect insights about teams' activities. The solution offers built-in invoice templates that can be customized to meet brand requirements.

Avaza offers additional project management features such as drag and drop, document sharing, sub-task creation, tagging, filtering, invoicing, reporting and receipts digitization. Users can also add payment buttons to invoices for portals such as PayPal, Visa, American Express, MasterCard and JCB.

Avaza is easy to understand deploy and use. A few features are not fully developed (at least for my needs) but there are workarounds. Support is great and there is a roadmap which will deliver many of the features I need.

Pros

Great for an integrated approach to time and expense recording.
Central control and visibility.
Fantastic customer service
Very cost effective
Comprehensive range of reports

Cons

Expense management doesn't have reimbursement management
Not possible to turn off unused features for administrators
Not possible to save customised report templates.

We replaced a broken CRM that was way more than we needed ( we used about 15% of it) with this, Avaza. I see us using about 80% of it.

Pros

Clean, Inviting and uncluttered User Interface
Really Powerful Reporting ( Amazing number of filters)
Surprisingly Good Integration with QuickBooks Online via Zapier
Constant Improvement and taking requests on new functionality
Excellent Support via Chat
Excellent price for Small Businesses

Cons

Not the simplest to learn
Would benefit from more custom field areas to customize to our needs better
Would love some online video tutorials

I have professional looking estimates and invoices at the click of a button (and a couple of key-punches, but who's counting).

Pros

Its free version does not limit me to experience the full package. Avaza allows me to grow within the free version to the point where the business can afford premium packages.

Cons

Either I can't find it, or it is not there, but I would like to be able to load and edit contacts, businesses and invoice items separately, easily and fully.

Consolidates my business processes

Pros

Consolidates the Timesheet, Project Management software and multiple spreadsheets I was using to try to understand how my business was progressing. It seems to take a flexible approach to different ways of billing clients. The interfaces are clean. It is affordable, even for small businesses, but it doesn't skimp on features.

Cons

I would like to see 2-way integration with Xero accounting but U understand that is coming in a future release.

Project management with time tracking for reasonable price.

Pros

We were looking for a project management software for our web development studio for a while. There are plenty of options out there. However, they are either too complicated or overpriced for the functionalities we need.
We use mostly project management and time tracking.
Avaza offers other great features as quotes and invoicing, but we use other software for these.

Cons

The settings and going around is not always 100% intuitive, but you can get your way around once you find out how everything work.

Great way to keep track of billable hours and amount of work I dedicate to each project in order to ensure profitability.

Pros

An easy and fast way to register the amount of time you've been working on each project, which allows for thorough tracking of billable hours on projects.

Cons

At first, it's somewhat complicated to get the hang of registering your timesheets and hours. It can be a little bit confusing, until you properly learn how to keep track.

We benefit from the easy to use software to help us with managing time sheets

Pros

The best part of this software is that it is modern and easy to use. This software gives us everything we need.

Cons

Not really a big complaint, but I only use this program for the timesheet and the other features are unnecessary for me. There should be an option to purchase the features of our choice.

Less overwhelm when trying to manage multiple projects and tasks.

Pros

The design of the task lists, and tagging has helped me to manage my tasks a lot easier than other project management software which can be overwhelming and chaotic. The invoicing has great customisation. Also the ability to view tasks in a list, Kanban or Gantt Chart layout is a great feature.

Cons

It is more project based rather than task based, so all tasks must have a project. Within those projects you have sections which are great but there's no where to archive or delete the sections once you've completed tasks within them. The intentions of projects of course are meant to be over a finite period of time, however I like to use programs like this for internal tasks and client work that is one-off tasks as well as projects. So for my requirements I do have to work around the restrictions of the projects a little.

Allows us to run our business in very much the way we envision it, and make good on our promise to our customers.

Pros

Avaza is flexible both in terms of features, as well as the two different user license seat types (love that). Also, the support is *excellent* and they are open about their feature roadmap, which is important to us. As a growing team, we see this as the single best option we have come across.

Cons

Like any feature-rich tool, I feel like it's going to take a while to understand how to use Avaza "properly", i.e., to its full potential. A set of videos showing how to use *all* of the features would be a great help here (I know this is on their roadmap). But they are great with other support, well above the norm. Looking forward to the videos though!

A low cost, good quality PSA solution that was easy to implement.

Pros

The value for money.
Easy to set up and get running quickly.
Customer support has been quick to answer and respond.

Cons

Wish it had better calendar like time tracking. We spend most of our time tracking in a day view which is less than efficient.
Difficulty in managing projects from the time view: adding tasks, updating project details, etc.

I just started using Avaza and believe the price is extremely worth it for the features you're getting. We have a small company with a tiny budget and I've tried over 15 softwares before finally finding Avaza, that has (almost) everything we need and is within our budget. The user interface is extremely simple to use, yet the reporting is powerful. The customer support is the best I've experienced so far. I hope this will be a long partnership with Avaza and I will not have to go through the hassle of testing dozens of softwares anytime soon.

Pros

Simplest user interface, best customer support, powerful reporting (especially job costing /profitability).

Cons

Customer account statements should be multilingual like the invoicing is, permissions should have more flexibility (as in choosing specifically which project info to share with team), should have an option for billing method that is "fixed fee" which will automatically be brought to an invoice, a calendar feature would be nice as well. :)

I'm talking from a startup point of view. I have used Avaza to manage my projects on a very high-level. My developers as well as QA teams use the app too. Avaza is easy to learn and use for most type of businesses.

Pros

Easy to use and very easy to learn.

Cons

Lack of deailed or in depth project managment tools.

Advice to Others

Atlassian's Jira is a very impressive tool which I use, but as a project manager who actively uses alot of similar tools, some of its features are useless for me or anyone in that matter. Mayby capture the most important features and integrate into your systems. ALso give a much competetive pricing module.

Migrated to Avaza from another larger PSA cloud platform, and amazed at the ease of use - the workflow and intuitiveness is on a whole different level and there's really no handholding needed to figure out your way around Avaza.

It's really designed for small teams that need a project management tool to loop the whole team together but not be bloated with so many other unnecessary 'extras' that you wouldn't use. This also translates to a very affordable and value for money subscription plan that's clear and provides everything that you need.

My only (very minor) complaint is that the mobile app is not a native app and so it's a little bit unwieldy to use (eg pressing back on the phone messes up with the Javascript loads). Apart from that, the team has been using Avaza for nearly 3 months now and are very satisfied with Avaza's simplicity, intuitiveness and adaptability. Keep it up, Avaza team!

Pros

Very easy to use and responsive support team. Quick way to record time and match against items.

Cons

Mobile app is not native. Task swim lane view breaks the screen going sideways.

Advice to Others

Very suitable for small businesses (1 - 10), particularly if focused on consulting / dev work. May not be suitable for teams that require a very specific and customised workflow.
