What challenges led your firm to BigTime?
Kyle: Billing operations for a consulting firm or anybody that is billing hours that are pulled off of a time card is very tedious in most accounting and ERP systems, so we looked out there to see what systems were built around consulting firms or any type of business that bills hours. BigTime was definitely one of the biggest hits out there.
Have you noticed an improvement in your day-to-day work?
Kyle: The biggest improvement in our day-to-day work has been the process of what we call our time closing and our billing period completion. Throughout that process, we audit, review, and approve all the time card entries for that billing period. That entire process we've been able to cut in half with BigTime based on the workflow setup, and when I refer to workflow, I mean how the system is naturally set up to progress through different statement invoices, pulling right off of time cards. But, reducing that time from closing the time card to getting invoices out the door to the clients has improved our cash flow by getting cash in the door from those invoices a lot faster.
With BigTime Software, Aegis has seen:
50% decrease in financial administrative tasks
50% reduction in billing process time
Have you noticed an improvement in the invoicing process?
Kyle: Definitely! Because invoices are getting out faster and we have more flexibility in tagging projects with different types of invoices, billing contacts, etc. They're getting to the right people's hands faster, which means we're going to get paid faster.
Have you seen a positive change in your firm’s productivity?
Kyle: We have two staff members in the finance team whose sole job is to handle our billings or our revenue. That includes getting time from time cards onto invoices reviewed and out the door to their clients. Prior to BigTime, their whole job was that process, every month just getting those invoices out the door! Now with BigTime, typically in a month, they have a week and a half to dedicate to other things besides billing because that process, which used to be a five to seven business day process, can now be squeezed down into three to five business days.
