BigTime Tops 2014 Awesome App Awards

  • Nov 30,2013

BigTime was named a winner in the 2014 Awesome Application Awards at the 10th Annual Accounting Solutions Conference in Las Vegas earlier this month. The conference, held November 3-6 at Caesars Palace, was hosted by The Sleeter Group, a consulting group dedicated to finding the best accounting technology solutions to help small businesses work smarter, faster and more efficiently. Intuit CEO Brad Smith delivered the event’s keynote.

“BigTime stood out from the thousands of software solutions designed for small businesses because it helps solve a critical business process and integrates seamlessly with other small business management platforms,” says Doug Sleeter, founder and president of Sleeter Group, noting that BigTime was chosen by technology thought-leaders and public voting by users.

“BigTime has long been synonymous with professional time and billing capabilities among users in the professional services arena,” says Brian Saunders, CEO of BigTime. “Unlike basic time trackers better suited to the needs of, say, waitstaff or plumbers, BigTime was designed specifically for professional services users: accountants, architects, engineers, lawyers, IT services professionals and consultants who require higher-level time and billing features like enhanced invoicing, custom reporting and multiple billing rate flexibility.”

“Most important,” Saunders continues, “these firms need a system that can reliably scale as they grow. BigTime does that. With BigTime, you set up once and you’re done. Whether you have five users or five hundred, BigTime is the only time and billing system you’ll ever need.”

Saunders, who spent a decade of consulting with small and mid-sized professional services firms to build one of the highest-rated time and billing systems on the Intuit Marketplace, created BigTime to work hand-in-hand with QuickBooks. The company previously announced an OEM licensing agreement with Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU), the maker of QuickBooks, and is the only time tracking app embedded within Intuit’s own practice management system.

“Whether we’re talking mobile or desktop time and billing functionality, BigTime has worked closely with professional services firms to respond to their industry-specific needs by providing easy-to-use products that can help them improve workflow and enhance productivity. Our goal is to be nothing less than the best time and billing app on the planet for our customers, and this Awesome App honor confirms that we continue to make strides in the right direction.”
