The small price and big function. I went through a lot of options and free trials to find a project management tool that offers as much for as little. The time tracking and reporting work fantastic. They keep slowly improving and adding functionality.

Likes Least

There are a few minor glitches that really irk me from time to time but they are trivial. It doesn't seem like there is a way to set preferences for window views so every time I log back in I have to reset the view (shut off the archive items, set the view to go from newest date on reports, things like that). Nothing that has been close to a deal breaker for me.

Recommendations

There are a lot of bells and whistles here that I don't even use and haven't ever explored - dig around. They have a free tier that lets you use everything and try everything for as long as you need to. It's well worth exploring.

Love this product, I've told everyone (who would listen or needed advice) about it. I've been using this product for years and love everything about it, especially the price!

Cons

Customer service is not something I like using since I can never get my questions answered real time. By the time I poke around and figure things out, they are no longer needed. If you're going to instal live chat on your site, then you need to be "Live"

Time tracking is a matter of discipline. Paymo is easy enough to use on a daily base, I had little to no trouble on adapting to the habit.

Pros

The Paymo setup is quite easy and transparent. In order to customize it for our needs, I found out that I could perhaps manipulate the hierarchy of clients / projects / task lists / tasks. Before doing so, I checked with their Support desk (live chat!) to make sure I wouldn't run into problems later on.
So now, we have a structure that fits our needs pretty well.

The application allows for many views (tables!) and reports.

Cons

For managing a team, it would be nice to have options to save filters, so that you can quickly jump from one view to another.

Some views are a bit too bland, making me feel a little lost on where to go.

I've used Paymo for the last 4 years for time tracking and invoicing of clients in freelance and work from home use. I don't use all of its features, but love that it has built in invoicing linked to paypal, can handle multiple currencies and makes recording my hours a breeze!

Pros

Works well, does what it says it does.

Cons

Price went up recently, but still value for money.

I used Paymo for a month and the value for what you get is awesome because the packages are pretty cheap relative to other to other project management tools. However, that makes sense because Paymo does a lot but doesn't do anything fantastically. It is great to stay organized and have all of your information in one place but not for daily activity. There is a lot going on and it doesn't streamline project management as some other applications do.

Excellent support first off. Next, killer UI. Paymo presents a plethora of essential features while retaining shear simplicity in execution. From my consumer research, Paymo offers more function and value for less than the competitors. I have relied on Paymo to simplify and automate my accounting and invoicing with over a dozen clients for the last 3 years, and never had a single regret about the service in ANY way. Happy to compose a 5-star review for the app which empowers me as an entrepreneur.

Paymo is a great all in one Studio Management app. You can control every stage of a project production since the estimating process to the invoicing and payment.
The app works really fast and has many great functionalities. The Accounting tools let you keep track of every financial aspect of the projects, and the project management app is great for collaborating between teammates.
The only bad aspect i can find is pricing... although is not that expensive, they charge you 10usd for using the accounting app and 10 more if you want to use the gantt app.

Pros

- All in one.
- Accounting app works great

Cons

- Price (some features are not included in normal plan)

As a freelance programmer I've tried and/or used a whole range of tracking and project management software over the past 20 years or so but Paymo has come as close to the perfect solution for me as I'm ever likely to find.

Pros

I use the Mac widget most of the time. I find logging in to online services irritating so Paymo is perfect. Everything goes in via the (unobtrusive widget) and I log in to the Paymo website maybe once or twice a month to create reports. The time tracking reports are very professional and easy to create.

Cons

I can't think of any other than maybe that it doesn't have a cup of coffee ready for me in the morning :)

Advice to Others

If you are like me and want a tracking program that is out of the way unless you want to use it, allows you to easily switch between jobs and has a great range of reporting options then definitely try Paymo.

I tested alot of time tracking service providers. This one is in my opinion the best - there are a lot of helpful features (invoicing, automatically generated payment reminders, performance measuring of employees, mobile app, estimations, expenses, defining working days, gant charts...), but they managed to keep the application easy to use. The price is standard for this class of business, but the service you get is great. There is also a very active and helpful support.

Pros

- a lot of functionality
- easy to use
- nice customer support
- good integration

Cons

- average price

There is a trial plan for testing the software

We have so many clients that use so many different products and softwares, etc. But this one is a great product. Used many softwares, and non have truly answers our needs. But the PaymoApp was the one who managed several of our needs. The "time tracking" is the best that we have used to control production. The metrics are just as important because of the management indicators. I strongly recommend.

Pros

We have periodically tested out several other programs, but this one has been the most comprehensive product. Easy to use framework, great integrations. Helpful in tracking time spent on multiple clients throughout the day, and the ability with the ability to invoice. Great value for money.

Cons

Customize the names of invoice files with be a nice feature to add.

I am a remote freelancer. From day one, Paymo made planning, budgeting, organizing, and billing simple and straight forward.

Example:
I use it for project planning and task management. I didn't' even realize at the time, but using the built-in timer against each individual task made it so that I could report to my customer overall time on each high-level project and task. When it came time for the first billing, they wanted that level of detail, and got it w/o with the invoice, w/o having to ask. That makes me look VERY good in their eyes.

This is the sort of detail put into this product. Expect to be wowed.

Pros

The workflow. I enter data once at the top of the workflow - build out projects, tasks and subtasks. From there, I can estimate, budget, track. When it comes time to bill, one click and my customer has everything they need, including detailed time tracking information.

Cons

There are a lot of needs by different types of use cases. Paymo can't satisfy everything. Of the few details that _I_ personally would like to have, their support has always offered a useful alternative.

Advice to Others

The free trial is generous. Give it a try for one billing cycle.

PaymoApp is an all in one project management application with time tracking, invoicing, and so much more features at very affordable prices.

Currently testing their free trial (no credit card required for the trial!)

I love the UI, indeed very user friendly. Their reports are far more better than the rest I have tried.

Overall, I'm so happy I found this application, since I was finding an alternative for the one we were using - Teamwork.

Pros

- User friendly UI
- Reports are easy to understand
- Project Management
- Invoicing (add-on)
- Far better than Teamwork

Cons

- No freemium
- Invoicing (add-on)
- No bundled pricing for teams of 5.

I've worked about 9 years in a company writing down my daily tasks on a sheet of paper. It was a real nightmare. For my own little company I wanted to find an affordable, flexible and reliable solution to track down the time spend on different projects. We believe that being well organised with time is a major key to success. Time is money right? I've compared online apps like Paymo for quite some time and tested quite a few as well. Paymo has really all we need and it keeps improving. In the beginning when things were a little confusing, their support was always super reactive to help me out in less than 24 hours. I highly recommend Paymo.

Pros

- Paymo comes with a nice desktop widget Paymo Timer (I'm using Paymo on mac) and another app called Paymo Plus which is really awesome. You can monitor absolutely everything you do with your computer and easily organise each task by drag&drop to each different project.
- Their subscription plans are really affordable.

I work as a freelancer in it, so tracking time and tasks for customers is essential, in every product i tried so far i find bugs or stuff which works not in that way i want to work. So i keep always looking for new tools.

With paymo it looks like i finally found one which fits me. A usable client for OS x and IOS was a must and so far i did not find any showstoppers and its pretty straight forward to track time and no delay tracking tasks ok they manage their tasks by themselves but other tools i have to wait 5 minutes to import them or their client is unusable or buggy.

Paymo is fast and has a simple workflow that is important for me, i don't need thousands of features and spend ours tracking time and tasks so it fits for me.

Only which i did not find yet are reoccurring tasks, that would be an improvement.

Overall i am really pleased with it so far, hope it stays like that.

Pros

ease of use, fit my workflow

Cons

reoccurring tasks

We've been using Paymo since a month for now. Thanks to it, we can now organize our work faster than before and check how much time we are in need for particular project with particular tasks. The report and invoices system are also very in need for us - it's a nice thing in relation to contact with our clients (simplifies some matters a lot).
I must also praise their tech-support. When I have any questions, I'm getting answers even within a few moments.

Paymo is going a a step further in time tracking. With Paymo, the projects management and also the control of resources has improved.

Pros

Paymo makes to work in teams and cooperate with different projects much easier.

Cons

The worst thing we found in Paymo is about adaptation because its difference from others time tracking app we used before.

Paymo is also the perfect tool to manage your out-of-office workers.

I've tried almost every time tracking app available, and while the timesheets and time tracking aren't the best of others, adding project tracking, costs, invoices etc... it makes it stand out from all others. It is the most complete package for sure. I really wish they built in integration to Xero (not sure why this was dropped, the answers on this integration are vague at best).

Pros

Nice modern layout, good time tracking. Project management features are great, can bill by fixed fee or time, or even a mixture. Shows you unbilled time which is great.

Cons

Invoices don't integrate with Xero, which makes them kind of pointless because I have to recreate them in Xero. They help to track billed/unbilled time, but lack of integration is a huge disappointment.

Advice to Others

Overall, I still think this is one of the best time/project tracking apps out there. I think the cost is a bit high (an extra $10/month) for invoicing, but you can't go wrong with Paymo.
