I schedule high school music lessons where students can sign up on a weekly basis for what works in their schedule. This system allows students to choose from the availability I have set and work within their own hectic schedules for a time that is best for them. My attendance rate has sky-rocketed for lessons since switching to this system this year. I am paying for the advanced settings and plan to continue for the foreseeable future. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It can be a bit of a learning curve as you are working through your own calendar to 'talk' to youcanbook.me which can seem backward. I watched the videos to learn more and that does take time to devote to truly learning the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I highly recommend purchasing the subscription version. It gives far more access to features that are incredibly useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
My student attendance rate for lessons is currently at approximately 95% for this school year. This system is allowing families the flexibility to accommodate their schedules. I also have it set up for them to tell me what they have been working on so when we go to their lesson we immediately jump into the content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We use Doodle to gauge peoples' availability on different days and times when trying to schedule a call, meeting, or videoconference for a group of people. It's effective at this task, much moreso than just asking everyone what times they can do. It's also free at the lowest level, which has proven sufficient for most of my needs. I don't know what pricing is like at higher levels, nor what additional functionalities come with increased price points.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Honestly, there's not much I dislike about it. It's great at what I use it for, which is basic availability polling to arrange meetings, calls, videoconferences, etc. I don't know much about other functionalities, so can't comment regarding those. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It works quite well for what I use it for, which is basic polling of peoples' availability at different dates/times for meetings, calls, etc. It's also free at the lowest level, which is all I need given the small size of my organization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It connects with Slack so I can get reminders about my calendar events. Before I knew this, it was hard for me to stay on task and keep track of what things I had coming up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I don't think there is anything that I dislike about it. I have simple needs and it fits them. At one point, it stopped automatically creating a Google Hangout for events scheduled with multiple attendees, but then it was fixed within a couple of days. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I think it's free, so use it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Google Calendar helps me organize my day and connect with others at my work. I can easily look up others' schedules to find a time to meet with them when I need to have a team meeting or a 1-on-1 with a supervisor.
It also makes it easy to set up calls with prospects because it sends email invites and can create meetings via Google Meets to have video calls. I use this all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Whenever my employees go out for a business tour, I have no worries about the expense management and thanks to FreshBooks that has eradicated the need of paper work. Now I have all the receipts in well-organized form. Also while working on a certain project, I have the clear idea about the amount of time invested in certain project; in this way I can manage the budget and do some future planning for the new rates. Due to this time tracking tool I am at much ease to invest with quality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Everything you ever wanted in a time management app. Industry-savvy time tracking. One-click invoicing. Customizable reports. Seamless QuickBooks integration.
I love how user friendly this program is. We recently switched from WorkBook and I don't ever want to look back because of how difficult it was. BigTime is well organized, I LOVE that I can save things or undo things in a simple click.
I'm still new to using it, but I must say one of my favorite things is probably the connection between BigTime and Quickbooks. I work a lot with Quickbooks, and the fact that things are linked and I can simply click "sync" and information transfers between the two means less duplicate entry work for me, and much less margin for error. I don't mind doing the work in any way, but this has already been incredibly helpful already in alleviating more time for the rest of my tasks.
Also, the fact that they have a live chat for customer service is amazing. And when they're not live, they'll answer you via email very quickly. That is so essential to me because sometimes I can't wait a week for an answer like I have with other programs in the past. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
So far I haven't found much I have disliked about the software. I will say that I wish we could customize some of the categories. It will take some time but "Activity" from our previous software means something completely different than "Activity" in BigTime. I think it will just take a little time to get used to it, but eventually we will get the differences down. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Give it a try! You never know if you like something until you give it a chance. I'm sure there are lots of great programs out there, but this one I definitely recommend already, and we haven't even been using it that long! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The biggest problem I think that has been solved for my workday is probably the amount of time I save on being able to sync things between BigTime and Quickbooks. I feel like I used to waste so much time because I was having to manually enter in data to Quickbooks AND to our old program. I have a lot more time to work on my other tasks now that I'm not doing double duty. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We have used the Visitor registration part of Envoy for many years, the simplicity of configuration and deployment is fantastic. Capturing visitor information both in advance and when someone turns up at our door has been amazing. We have since move on to using Protect and Desks to help throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, this has been an incredibly useful addition to the current suite, our assessment so far has been positive. This will come into it's own as more staff return to the office ensuring they feel confident that attendance is being managed efficiently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Nothing to dislike, just some feature requests on the new Protect and Desks functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you are seriously considering managing visitors or having staff register for health and safety purposes, you should definitely get a trial of this software and test for yourself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The visitor attendance was always introduced for exactly that purpose, it looks good and functions well. The latest functionality of Protect and Desks has certainly ensured there is a confidence from staff as we head into uncertain times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
- Stampli's invoice approval process has made our AP team's lives a million times easier! We used to spend so much time tracking down invoices, naming and coding them, manually emailing each one out for approval, tracking the invoices until we get an approval back, then manually saving and merging each approval to its matching invoice, before we were ever even able to begin keying the invoices into our system. Stampli has reformed this process completely! We now just forward our invoices to Stampli, then our AP team goes in, codes each invoice (which Stampli does half of this for us), selects the approvers it needs to go to, then sends. Once the invoice has been approved by all approvers, it shows up in our Approved Invoices tab, where we can easily authorize it for payment and then export it out to our financial system.
- Stampli’s duplicate invoice detection has also cut out a ton of extra work we were doing, as previously, we would often receive duplicate invoices, go through the entire approval process, then try to key the invoices into our financial system and find out that they have already been keyed or paid… Stampli now tells us right when we are coding the invoices whether they are a duplicate or not.
- We love that we are able to see all communications between everyone who has touched the invoice, all in one central location with Stampli’s Communications Hub. This makes it much easier to know where an invoice is at in the process, without having a million separate emails going around.
- Our GM’s like that they now have easier access to viewing their store’s invoices, rather than having to keep requesting copies from us.
- Our DM’s also like that they are easily able to run a Pending Approval search to see which of their GM’s still have invoices open, that way they can keep them on track. This is a big plus for our AP team as well, as this has significantly cut the time and effort we have had to put into getting approvals back in a timely manner.
- Stampli’s customer support has been top notch overall. Our customer rep, Eric Juco, has truly been a godsend. He is prompt and quick to reply. He answers every question we ask, and we have asked many, in detail and provides examples. After going through demos with 3 other companies that had decent products, but shotty customer service, Stampli has definitely been a breath of fresh air. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
While most of our feedback regarding this product is positive, there are a few negatives to consider:
- Only AP Personnel are able to use the Comment feature to make comments on invoices. The only way Approvers are able to comment on an invoice is for them to click Approve, Reject, Request a Field Update or to use the Ask a Question feature, then type the comment in the field below. This is really not optimal, as most of the time, the approver does not want to do any of those things, they just want to add a comment.
- When invoice copies are downloaded in bulk from Stampli, which we have been doing each week, only the invoices will download, not any of the communications or approvals attached to each invoice.
- We wish we were able to give our department head’s (approvers) permissions to edit GL coding, without giving all approvers these permissions. Currently, there is only the option to either give everyone GL coding permissions or to only give AP Personnel GL coding permissions.
- I have heard numerous comments throughout our company about wanting the invoice view to be a bit bigger, although most agree that the magnifying tools do make up for this.
- Only PDF files can be forwarded to Stampli. All other files types must be converted to PDF before being sent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
- Streamlining our AP Invoice Approval Process.
- Reducing time spent on manual tasks.
- Reducing manual data entry.
- Reducing the amount of time it takes invoices to get approved and paid. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I like that we can have multiple people's calendars on our home screens. I work in a small mental health practice and we're often scheduling for one another so it's imperative that we be able to see each other's calendars. Before COVID, we were also allowing clients to schedule themselves through our website which was great. I also enjoy the business integrations. We've been able to integrate our scheduling with Zoom, GoToMeeting, Active Campaign and QuickBooks--which has allowed us to streamline our business and client processes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I don't like that when you block off time in Acuity, it doesn't show up on your linked Google calendar as blocked off time. The acuity app is constantly having problems, so it's difficult to use my phone for scheduling. They allow for different colors for different appointment types, but they don't allow you use different colors for different practitioners' appointments. When you're looking at everyone's calendar on one page (especially in week view) it's really confusing and you can't easily distinguish whose appointment is whose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We can integrate it with other apps which means when clients get scheduled for certain appointment types, they now automatically receive certain emails, zoom links when appropriate, and their payment can go through quickbooks. It works pretty well, minus the kinks listed above, for a small practice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I've been using Quickbooks for my content marketing business for the past 3 years. It's intuitive, easy to understand, and helps me stay on top of my business income, expenses, and estimated taxes. I really appreciate the fact that it estimates my quarterly tax payments. Saves me a lot of time every quarter. It's very simple to categorize my expenses. And I love the invoicing feature. I can also upload all my information straight to my tax software, which is a huge plus come tax season. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
A couple downsides: the estimated tax payments tend to skew too big every quarter. I appreciate the fact that they are not too small, but I wish they were more accurate. Also wish that the software could give me an estimation for state taxes — I have to do this manually myself. I also recently ran into an issue where I was locked out of my QB account for no reason and had to pay for a subscription to get back in. That was a pain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
QuickBooks saves me a lot of wasted time that I previously spent doing manual calculations. It saves me from underpaying on my taxes. And, it helps me to send out my invoices on time every month, since the process is as easy as clicking a couple of buttons Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The ease of use. Especially, in a fire drill. I can just pick it up and take it outside to the Assembly Point. The SwipedOn support staff are more than happy to help and resolve any issues very quickly.
We have a lot of visitors to school who compliment and are impressed by our system. We have also recommended this system to other schools in out Local Authority who have been ore than happy with SwipedOn. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
One recommendation hower would be be, it would be handy if the administrator could alter sign in/out times of staff as some staff forget to sign in and out at they leave the building.
One dislike is that SwipedOn signs people out when you mark them as "safe" in an evacuation. In school, staff go to their own classrooms and in their own doors so they cant pass through reception and sign back in as they would in any other building. It's quite time consuming to sit and sign in each member of staff and to remember which staff were in school is a little risky. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
You will not regret it, it takes pressures off reception staff (evacuation and archiving) you can focus on the more important things. Visitors love it and you can design it to match your reception (colour, branding, logo) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We are a school so safeguarding is paramount. We are able to see who is in school at a quick glance and the photograph feature is amazing! We also no longer have to archive old records which takes up space.
Before SwipedOn we would have to take two seperate folders to the assembly point (visitor and staff) this eliminates that and the iPad is lightweight and far easier to handle. It has also improved out evacuation time as we can identify visitors by their face picture. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Visitor management at its best. Handles everything from scheduled visit to a newcomer. It even includes package delivery.
It has been a few times I had to reach out for support but it seems they are always available. You can get a quick reply for your inquires with a solution. Online Support has never let me down. And if I reached out for support is not because something is wrong with Proxyclick (because it has never stopped working) but because I wanted to do something new or different I wasn’t doing before. They guide you step by step until you complete your task.
Billing is also an ease. We receive our invoice the same date every month with all detailed info we need to process payment (from correct address to PO number and any other special request we do). AP have never had an issue with billing.
Running on iOS also provides a great experience, many people may be Android fans but iPad really shines when using Proxyclick. Get a stand for your iPad and Proxyclick will change the way your reception counter looks. It will be neatly organized. And being so self explanatory you won’t require an extra person to help register a visitor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It seems to have everything I need so at this moment I’m still looking for something I don’t like. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Using Proxyclick to manage visitors have changed not only the way we used to do it. It has a great impact with all visitors. Being able to register themselves and get a badge with their picture is really professional and getting rid of the old book where everyone had to sign was wonderful.
It allows you for screen customization, several language options and easier registration for returning visitors.
Proxyclick shows how many visitors are inside the premises in an emergency situation at any time, allowing to look for someone who’s not present during an evacuation.
And with connectors and web hooks you can improve even more, like using Skype to let people know they have a visitor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
