Project Management, Collaboration & Time Keeping Software

David Levy's Profile

My small consulting firm (15 employees) currently uses different applications for project management (Microsoft Project), project time tracking (BigTime), CRM (Avidian Prophet) and Quick Books for our financials.

We are interested in finding a single application that would support project management, team collaboration, time tracking and be able to export to Quick Books. We've taken a look at easyprojects and Liquid Planner, for example.

Does any one have any suggestions for such an application?  Thanks.

I'd look at basecamp, but I'm not sure how well it talks to Qbooks. Also check out: http://www.myintervals.com/

If Quickbase has the functionality you need, it could be ideal since it should obviously integrate well with Quickbooks. In any case, I'm hoping you will post what you ultimately select and tell us how the implementation goes.

Tenrox web-based project management software can help you with this. It can track time and project's cost. It has a billing system which can be integrated with quickbooks. You may also try Click Time WebTimesheet. It can be integrated with quickbooks too but not sure if it supports project management.

There is also this blog here: http://www.timedoctor.com/blog/2011/02/02/43-project-management-software-alternatives that has a various list of project management software alternatives with features compared from each other. This can help you choose which software is better for you.

I've been looking at Intacct you might want to try there as well. I've heard a lot of good things but I can verify as I'm not using it yet.

Basecamp is easy to use, intuitive, and has a very short learning curve. Having tried many collaboration tools over the years, I wouldn't sacrifice the productivity gained for the quickbooks integration.

I have no idea if it integrates with Quickbooks, however.

David,

My company has been using BigTime for about 8 years. We just recently decided to switch to NetSuite, retiring BigTime and QuickBooks in the process, to handle T&E, PM, accounting and financial reporting. I'm in the middle of the NetSuite implementation now, but would be happy to share details on how we chose NetSuite and why we chose to move away from BT and QB.
