Harvest vs Clockify
Both Harvest and Clockify are time tracking software products. Harvest also has invoicing features, which makes it super convenient, but that comes at the cost. Harvest requires more work to set up, offers less flexibility, and is complicated to use.
Clockify, on the other hand, is a pure time tracker. It's super simple to use, adding time is quick, there's no set up at all, and offers managers much better reports.
Why switch from Harvest to Clockify
Because Clockify doesn't have invoicing and expense tracking features, it can focus on being the best stand alone time tracker.
Clockify is perfect for teams because employees can track time with just one click and Clockify is completely free no matter how many users you have.
If you need to invoice your work hours, Clockify lets you export all data in Excel so you can have more control over creating your own invoices (you can send the data to your accountant/payroll, or calculate what you want to invoice and create an invoice using a Word template).

What Clockify does better than Harvest
Adding people in Harvest is a big deal as you need to fill in a lot of details and manually assign people to projects before they can track time. In Clockify, your team can track time right away, and you can add structure later.
The more users you have, the more expensive Harvest is. Clockify is free no matter how many users you have (you only pay if you want to self-host Clockify on your own servers).
What makes Clockify a great Harvest alternative
1. Insanely simple to use
2. Better insight
Because time tracking is so simple, people can be more thorough when tracking time and you'll have a better insight on what's going on.
3. Flexible reports
4. Export all data
You can export all your time entries in CSV and Excel, and use the data to calculate payroll or create invoices yourself.
5. Completely free
6. Control work hours
You can assign tasks to employees and set estimates, and then see when they track more time than they should.
7. Fits in with your pre-existing system
8. Boosts employee productivity
Every person has a personal dashboard where they can see their personal time breakdown. Also, they can run reports and analyze their time better.
Clockify has everything we need, without costing a fortune
I own a software development company and we were paying Toggl around $500 each month so all employees could log time. That's too much money for something so simple. So we created Clockify. It has everything a typical company really needs, without costing a fortune.
