Abak Overview

What is Abak?

Abak is the bridge between your team working on projects, and business management systems such as accounting and payroll: Employees and vendors fill out their time sheet and expense reports. Managers approve their team’s time and expenses. Project Managers produce reports in project status, such as work in progress, budget control and project profitability. Accounting professionals invoice clients for the billable work done, and transfer the data to accounting and payroll.

Excellent for Time and Project Tracking and Management

Our organization uses ABAK to manage billing on a per consultant and per project basis. We have found it to effectively coordinate this work with invoicing.

I definitely recommend Abak.

We've been working on Abak software since 2011 and find it's exactly what we need for our business. With what the basic program offered to the customization of the software, I have not run into any issues we were not able to accomplish with Abak. Installation was seamless and the knowledgeable training staff took steps to ensure I was comfortable working with the program before letting me go on my own. I really liked the homework portion of training, I felt it helped me retain the training very well. As a naval architect/marine engineering firm our needs differ from client to client, Abak listens to what I need and works very quickly to solve it or shows me how to accomplish it within the program. As the only administrative person I don't have a lot of time to spend learning new software and as a company looking to start with a new software we needed to have the software up and running immediately; which Abak did. I found Abak very easy to learn and my questions/needs solved within 24 or less hours. Starting with the basic implementation to where I am now becoming a 'Power User' the software is performing very much to my satisfaction. Abak was the only software I tested that gave me great customer service prior to the purchase and a year later they are still exceeding my expectations. I definitely recommend Abak.

The customer service and after sales support is as good as it gets.

Our process with Abak started last year when our firm decided that we needed to improve the way we track time and expenses in order to help us attain our strategic goals. Like many small consulting firms, we had been using spreadsheets to track the various metrics that we thought were most useful. The problem that we faced was that none of the spreadsheets were linked. The metrics were all over the place and often there were double and triple entries that were needed. With Abak, we now have one place to enter our time and expenses. The metrics are easier to access and we can also run queries to pull other metrics that we simply could not obtain previously.

Our experience through the transition has been full of challenges, but the people at Abak were up to every challenge that we threw at them. I attended a financial management course several months ago and one of our discussions revolved around time tracking and management systems. Every person in the room mentioned lack of support and training with providers. This is where I feel that Abak excels. The customer service and after sales support is as good as it gets.

Our organization uses ABAK to manage billing on a per consultant and per project basis. We have found it to effectively coordinate this work with invoicing.

Pros

Simple for users to monitor time spent on a project by project basis.
Can integrate with expense accounts, and billings.
Easy to get an overview of projects over any specified time scale.

Cons

The appearance of the software is dated, however it does not appear to impact the functionality.
Grammar and spelling features are somewhat lacking compared to the available alternatives.

Pros

I'm an employee using this software. It's very structured and allows for my managers to properly segment a task into which I put time into. Use friendly.

Cons

The only lacking thing is the user interface design. Although all options appear to be there, I have to admit that the software seems a bit analog.
