If you currently use either:
- QuickBooks Time Tracker or
- QuickBooks Time and Billing
Both of these applications are being discontinued as of December 1, 2011, so the race is on for your business to find a replacement!
ALTERNATIVES TO QUICKBOOKS TIME TRACKER AND QUICKBOOKS TIME AND BILLING
If you read the Intuit announcement about these applications being discontinued, you may be led to believe that you MUST choose the eBillity option as your replacement.
That is NOT true - you are able to select from any of the time and billing solutions that integrate with QuickBooks.
MY FAVORITE ALTERNATIVE TO QUICKBOOKS TIME TRACKER/TIME AND BILLING
I have recently gotten to know the sales and management team of ClickTime and have been highly impressed with their solution to the time tracking and expense reporting needs of small businesses.
The ClickTime solution integrates seamlessly with your QuickBooks data file, so there is no double data entry involved. Their software is not installed on your local computers or network. Rather, it is accessed via a secure site on the internet. This means you don't have to wear an IT hat to install it or maintain it. They take care of all that for you.
I'll be writing more about ClickTime in future posts to help you develop a better understanding of how it works. But I know that you are pressed for time right now to find a quality alternative to the QuickBooks Time Tracker and Time and Billing applications and wanted to get this information to you.
A 30 day free trial of ClickTime is readily available for you to take a test drive.
The Intuit Marketplace also provides a list of other alternatives to the QuickBooks Time Tracker and Time and Billing Products. As with any other software purchase, due diligence is essential to ensure that the solution fits your needs and expectations.
