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.

Pros

Timesheets linked to tasks, ease of pulling reports. For the most part, easy to navigate and to add/browse tasks.

Cons

Disjointed and discontinuous interface - for example, multiple entrypoints into features like timesheets make the interface overwhelming.

We tried many apps before Avaza and couldn't find one that had the functionality and ease of use that we wanted. Fortunately, we found Avaza and took to it very quickly. We were also very pleased with the integration with other apps we use making our overall processes more automated and seamless.

An area I didn't think we would use much was Reports, but we've found it to be very helpful at getting snapshots of each project and all projects as a whole.

Pros

We now have an easy to use central location for Project Management and Time Tracking with workflow. Much better than separate systems like we had before. The ability to scale based on our project team size and all the underlying workflow functionality is very good.

Overall great product. We beta tested about three to four software programs before settling on Avaza.

Pros

The ability to facilitate multiple business processes in one software is both efficient but cost effective, particularly for a startup. We track all of our projects, project time, and invoices inside of Avaza.

Cons

The proposal portion of the software is a bit limited. It functions well, but as a creative agency we need the ability to create custom proposals, so we use another software to facility this part of our business.

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.

I really like the project timer. It makes it easy to track time without having to first select a client. When you stop the timer you are able to assign it to a client and task.

Cons

It would be nice if you could add tasks straight from the timer, but the inability to do so is not a dealbreaker.

Pros

We spent some time reviewing our options for a solution to help us manage multiple client projects. Did our due diligence and made sure all (almost all) our requirements were checked off. Avaza is a solid solution, with a vast array of features that we can now leverage to deliver our projects more effectively. We can assign external resources (including our clients) to project tasks, track schedule, budget - among maybe a thousand things we haven't even found yet.

The support team at Avaza is fantastic, very helpful and responsive. Customer reps are rockstars!

The number of integrations (either direct or through Zapier) is phenomenal. Especially the direct integration with Quickbooks.

If you're looking for a comprehensive delivery and project management solution you should definitely give Avaza a deep look.

Cons

With such a comprehensive solution, the initial setup took some time. Probably a bit more than we were expecting, but it was time well spent.

Great project tracking with tasks well organized, time tracking against tasks and very nice reporting as well as exporting data and importing.

Pros

I like that I can create project structure with sections, tasks and sub-tasks.
All tasks can be tracked against time and completion and shown in nice gantt chart.
Add estimates for each task
Rich and custom reporting
Assign users to tasks and add followers
Capability for clients to have access and see progress of their projects
Uploading files
adding comments

Cons

It seams to take few extra clicks to start timer against task, like select project task and so on.
I wish there was better integration with google drive.
That dashboard is not be customized to user needs.

Hi Lukasz,
Thank you for your review!
I noticed you mentioned that it takes a few clicks to start tracking time. You can use our timer (shown at the top of every screen) to start tracking time with one click.

We also support attaching files from Google Drive to your Tasks, Task Comments, Estimates and Invoices.

Thank you again for your review, and for any clarifications, please contact support@avaza.com :)

The support is just plain awesome. There is someone there to respond to support requests almost all the time even though they are in a timezone that is over a day away. The time tracking portion of the software just works fantastically, the billing is excellent, and it's just very impressive how much this product can do.

Cons

Time is calculated out to 4 decimal places but they don't always show all of the decimals, which can create some goofy reports. There is an option to round the time for billing and reporting but often times we would prefer to adjust the time up or down rather than simply round.

Pros

This is easy to use web application. Task tracking, posting comments against the task, one solution to report the status to manager.

Cons

Good UI and easy to learn and use. Also, the reporting feature is good. The progress of task and daily timesheet adds more points into Avaza account.

Saves me a heap of time compared to my old software, and works well with my business practices.

Pros

This is the first Invoicing software i've found that works the way I do. Simple to populate, great looking invoicing, really in-depth reporting, and great customer support - can't fault it.

Cons

Some initial teething troubles importing my own data, sorted out be the support team. The limit of 1 invoicing user in the lowest tier pricing is a little restrictive.

A platform to keep up with all of my customers including leads and to be able to track my invoices all in one location.

Pros

Great customer service. Excellent pricing! Does most of what I need it to do. I can manage projects and track invoices, etc all in one platform.

Cons

The interface needs to be more colorful, especially for creatives. It also would help to have a main dashboard to track all projects in one place. A daily list of tasks/to-dos would help as well.

I realy enjoy this app and the support is great. I guess I would just say that it's to bad it took me 6 hours to find it because if I would of found it first I would of saved 6 hours.

Pros

I wanted to share my positive experience getting started with Avaza.
I spent about 4-6 hours searching for a system that would enable my team to manage our internal and external projects of ppc ads and email marketing campaign projects. I played with many apps that were missing some of the features I was looking for. I finally came across Avaza and was so happy since it had exactly what I was looking for!

After getting excited about all the valuable features I was amazed to see that support was a top notch 5 star integral part of the service that is on-board 24/7. I was welcomed the minute I logged in followed by another rep. that answered kindly and professionally all my initial questions. I was so happy with the customer service and the wonderful product that I signed up immediately for the webinar that took place the following day. The webinar support agent was very kind and professional and gave me a one hour, one on one webinar answering all my questions and giving me great tips to get started. I see myself using Avaza for many years to come as well as recommending it to all my friends and associates.

Wishing all lots of productive and happy moments

Pros

We were using Workflowmax for time tracking and invoicing, and Freedcamp for project management as Workflowmax simply didn't work well (or at least not how we wanted to work) for project management and communication. We've successfully replaced the two systems with Avaza, saving us money and streamlining the business. No more flicking between two systems.

Pros

First, Avaza has great customer support. I never waited longer than a couple minutes for a response. The price is incredibly affordable, and the features are great if you're using Avaza as your main job/project management tool.

Cons

Avaza, while customizable within itself, doesn't always work well with other systems/software which is only a problem because it's not in-depth enough to eliminate all other software. I wouldn't really call the software customizable as much as you just have a lot of options you can choose from. If you run a lot of different software that needs to tie together, Avaza may not be the way to go.
