Paymo Software


 

Paymo is a cloud-based project management solution designed for small and midsize businesses. It offers team collaboration, timesheet management and project accounting functionalities within a suite.

Paymo offers project management, which enables users to create projects, divide projects into task lists and assign tasks to the right people. Team members can then engage in project discussions and stay updated on the progress of projects.

A key feature of the software is the Visual Kanban Board, which enables users to visualize the progress of each task and reduce projects' idle time.

With the help of project accounting functionality to track expenses, create automated client invoices and estimate project profitability, users gain a complete view of their accounting activities.

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.

Easy management of projects and easy charge customers.

Pros

Great amount of options and personalization. I can create my projects, reuse templates, charge my customers easy and have easy overview over a monthly situation.

Cons

That the options seem a little crowded in the interface.
I believe there should be a little more improvement on that.

Internally in my work we use it to measure how much time we use in each client since many of them ask us to quote for hours, but at the same time it helps us to understand how we divide our time in the office and optimize it.

Pros

It is a very inexpensive tool for the functions it has, since it not only tracks the time but also allows to generate reports, compare metrics, etc. I think one of the highest points is the user-friendly interface that you have, very intuitive and fast access to all its features

Cons

I think it fulfills the function without any problem, it is a reliable tool but above all practical. Perhaps as the only point to consider, it would be good to incorporate a special platform for managing reports and thus have the full spectrum of features.

Great for saving time and managing tasks effectively when working with a team. It's also useful for freelancers and individuals who want to manage their tasks, projects, and even clients.

I use it remotely to connect with my team and to monitor task progress and it helps me to avoid misunderstandings when it comes to communication. Paymo is constantly improving this software and adding new features so they're able to keep up with my needs.

I am so much more organized now and can focus a lot better on my work!

Pros

I have everything I need in one app that is feature rich, but at the same time really easy to use. I go from sending estimates, to setting up projects, tasks, time tracking and billing (it is even integrated with Payoneer, so my clients pay me directly from the invoice!). I tried and tested and was using 3 apps to get all I needed done before I found Paymo. Now it's only one tab on my browser!

Cons

Nothing really, been using it for months and the more I use it, the more I like it! Whenever I need to do something different or new, setting a different hourly rate for a particular project or task, edit the timesheets, mark an invoice that wasn't paid online as paid, or send reminders, everything is just there with such a great UI.

It's easy to use and integrate with our other systems thru their REST API and Webhooks. It gives us a quick overlook of all our projects, invoices and contacts.

Cons

We are missing custom fields on the customers, and being able to put them into different categories depending on what services we are offering to them. Because if we had this option, then we would be able to use it as a lead tool as well.

I love the templates that it lets you create and add to projects.
Ultimately Paymo saves you an incredible amount of time. It allowed us to move from 3 separate apps for tracking hours, tasking, and project management, to just using Paymo.

Cons

The biggest con for me is the lack of a more comprehensible "tasks" dashboard.
I wish there was a better way to track incomplete tasks that are directly assigned to you.

Pros

easy to use, reliable, accurate time tracking. Robust features. Unlimited clients and projects. Each project will have a dashboard showing total hours worked and how many tasks out of total have been completed. Projects can be tracked by custom categories, like bid, active, on hold, lost/won, archived. Task view can be switched between list, table, and kanban; users can collaborate by commenting on tasks, attaching files, assigning the task, and setting due dates. Team Scheduling allows you to see who is busy (or overwhelmed) and who is free to work on more tasks. Accounting features: Invoicing, Estimates, Expenses. The built-in timer makes tracking time spent working on tasks quick and easy.

Cons

Paymo is constantly improving this software and adding great, new features. One that would be helpful is the ability for each user to have a view showing all the tasks assigned to them, sorted by due date. Currently there is a My Tasks section, but it only sorts by Project Name.

Great visibility of where time is being spent, including analysis of time write-offs, job profitability and staff productivity levels.

Pros

Paymo is easy to use in configuration, time recording and reporting. It's a great solution for scheduling and recording staff and subcontractor time.

Cons

Paymo is attempting to make the transition from a time recording utility to a full-blown project management tool. In this regard it has a way to go, so it's sort of caught in the middle at the moment. I've made a couple of attempts to work with the auto-time recorder, but have given up each time (but that's possibly more related to the fragmented nature of my work - your mileage may vary.

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.
