iBE.net is a fully mobile, web-based Professional Services solution. It offers an end-to-end suite of integrated PSA applications, including Project Management, Project Accounting, Time and Expense Tracking, Billing and Invoicing, Help Desk, Business Intelligence, and more; iBE.net has everything companies need to eliminate the hassle of working in multiple systems.
This solution offers configurable interfaces to accounting systems like QuickBooks, FinancialForce, and SAP. It can also be integrated seamlessly with existing IT systems. Deployment is simple; iBE.net’s experienced team will get existing data into the system fast so companies can get started quickly. They’ll also make the transition painless, providing training specific to each user’s role, and 24x7 customer support for any questions that arise.
iBE.net delivers a powerful native iOS app that grants full access to company operations in the cloud. Users can manage projects, track, submit, and approve time, and even manage files from their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It also has a user-friendly messaging component. We think the expense management feature is particularly helpful; it automatically gathers expenses from bank accounts or credit cards, allows users to submit them for approval, and makes it easy for approvers to initiate reimbursement.
iBE.net is a great fit for mid-sized companies in many verticals, especially Information Technology, Marketing, Management Consulting, Engineering, and Advertising. A lot of the powerful enterprise functionality offered by iBE.net, such as configurable workflow and full analytics, are typically associated with more costly and complicated solutions; we’ve found that iBE.net offers great value and robust features with a straightforward, affordable price point.

We started using iBE for all billable and non billable time and expense processing and invoicing in January 2015. Our projects include straightforward Time & Materials, Fixed Price & Billable Milestone and also have more recently started using ad-hoc invoicing when required. iBE worked closely with us to help us manage any 'specific' requirements that can be required when we are delivering for very large customers with invoicing requirements that they dictate which might otherwise require us to have separate manual invoicing processes.
That it is an all in one solution, we can create invoices directly from time and expenses entered rather than having to export into another solution.
Sometimes it tries to be too helpful, defaulting in data that I have to then adjust .

It has the capability to bring my entire business on one platform and integration is seamless. I am able to manage my employees, contractors their time / expenses, resource allocations, project and task management. I was amazed how it allows me to bill my T&M, Fixed Prices, Retainer and milestones based complicated projects with a single click. Support staff is extremely responsive and knowledgable about their product.
So far we have been sailing smoothly and in case of any issues support staff helps immediately.
Ensure that your requirements are crisp and go for a phased implementation. Start with Time / Expenses /Approvals / Project / Invoicing and then graduate to CRM, Dashboards in second phase.

Designed to be adaptable to a range of business types/models, and very customizable
Very responsive customer service
With so much robustness, there is a LOT of complexity in setting up the interface; it requires a lot of learning and understanding of nuanced processes, but my customer service experience has helped to overcome the obstacles.
Documentation could use updating and expanding and on-boarding process could be streamlined
have a clear understanding of your company's needs and how your company deals with each individual process of information management; be sure someone in your company who is highly knowledgeable about its operations is assigned to evaluate it
take time to consider how business information management might change or be impacted by implementing such a system

The product meet our needs, and the vendor is flexible to customize it with our new requirements.
I haven't had any problems with this product and/or vendor.
Make sure you have a subject matter expert and business analyst in this process.
Jerry from ROC
Specialty: IT Services
Seamless integration into our SAP financial system, which removes a lot double entry of data in the key process of Invoicing.
The product works really well, but the branding of the product is a bit "flat" and does not help with our employees' engagement for the more mundane administrative tasks faced by our organization.
Lots of companies talk about business or process automation, but very few deliver it from end to end. iBE.net does.
