Ajera not only can help to create tools for you to manage the projects well from tracking the budget hours, the worked hours, the project costs, forecasting the project probabilities, scheduling, etc. which the Ajera salespersons are mainly focused on (it is true), but also you could create a lot of additional reports.
I like the ease of use for our staff. It is easy for them to find the appropriate project they are working on to code their time accordingly. Additionally, it is easy for them to bill to Holiday, Sick, or overhead as necessary. Once in the timekeeping window, the search feature works great whether you are searching by project titles or numbers.
The software is VERY difficult to use. It’s like the whole development team is stuck in the ’90s. Every task is confusing. We employ someone almost full-time just to help our users navigate the software. Also, it still runs on Internet Explorer but not Chrome or FireFox, which defies belief.
Prior to using Ajera, we had to use 3 different products and manual processes to do the same job. Deltek Ajera greatly streamlines the workflow, ensures accurate costing and makes invoicing very simple.
Widgets are the best feature of Ajera. Designers can make tiny reports for the entire company, or for one or two individuals. These little reports are the first things that the employee sees when they log in. Viewers of the reports are able to filter, sort, group, print or export the widget without impacting the other users.
“We used ITime and Expense in the past, which was an older product of this manufacturer. We were in the market for a new accounting software to track employee and associates time and expenses along with a number of other reporting features for our accounting department. We went with this product based on the huge editability and customized reporting that they offer. It’s awesome and does the job so well.”
The system is built on .NET and has bugs in nearly every module. You must use a PC and internet explorer to even log into the system which does not integrate with any outside systems such as your bank or any payments platform. To even use the system you must be well versed in the individual bugs in each module.
