AboutTime and WorkMax Comparison Page Header 1024 X 200 

Rick Niemeyer PresidentNiemeyer Bros. Plumbing"I bought AboutTime back in 2005. We’ve loved it, but had to cut expenses. Last year, we needed a time solution and chose WorkMax TIME. We couldn't be happier with how easy and fast it was to set up. With WorkMax, you get a cleanmodern, cloud-based solution at a fraction of the cost. Every contractor should buy WorkMax today if they want accurate labor and job costs."                  
                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  • What is the WorkMax Platform?

    WorkMax development started in 2013. We have applied everything we learned from over a decade of building the AboutTime Enterprise product and used that experience to blueprint, design, engineer and deliver the ultimate web-based resource management solution. Not just one monolithic product, but a complete platform of independent modules (solutions) to let our customers get exactly what they need today and in the future. These modules are built to work alone if desired and outperform other TIME, FORMS, ASSETS, B.I. products on the market as individual products. When combined they are even more powerful via one app, one database and one system to learn... where everything plays nice.
  • On-Premise vs. Hosted vs. True Cloud / Web Solutions...

    AboutTime Enterprise is an on-premise solution where software is installed at a customer's site and/or on the customer's servers, which are updated and maintained by the customer. In attempt to get to the "cloud" quickly, some software vendors simply host their same old existing on-premise solution, then brand it as a cloud/web solution. They are essentially selling the same product to their customers through a subscription model. WorkMax is not "AboutTime Enterprise - Hosted" but rather it is a completely new, ground-up web-based platform that is built with the latest and most powerful cloud technology. WorkMax and the technology it is built on provide many benefits to customers that can not be achieved with an on-premise or with a "hosted" solution.
  • Will the WorkMax Platform Replace AboutTime Enterprise Suite?

    We now offer two best-of-breed product solutions for our customers to choose from. Each have unique strengths. Today, AboutTime Enterprise sales are growing faster than ever and we just released our sixth major version release, AboutTime Enterprise Suite 6.0. Many AboutTime customers are also very excited to know we have a powerful web strategy in place as another option. The WorkMax Platform provides some distinct advantages to customers as a fully web based, modular solution.
  • Will WorkMax integrate with my accounting as AboutTime does?

    Yes. We have taken the last fourteen years of integration development that we have engineered with AboutTime Enterprise and tied all of the integration capability into an WorkMax compatible application called Connect Max. Connect Max is used to integrate your accounting data with WorkMax.
  • What about security and reliability of my WorkMax data?

    WorkMax is hosted through Amazon AWS (Amazon Web Services). With AWS, WorkMax customers gain the advantage of a scalable, reliable, and secure global computing infrastructure, the virtual backbone of Amazon.com’s multi-billion dollar online business that has been honed for over a decade.

  • Are there any discounts available for AboutTime customers that switch to WorkMax?

    Yes, there are discounts available for AboutTime customers. We can set you up with your own discount code that can be re-used as you buy and add to your WorkMax system.
  • Are all features and function identical between AboutTime and WorkMax?

    Not one-to-one. They are completely different products. Many of the most commonly used features in AboutTime are also included in the WorkMax platform modules. There are also many enhancements and new features in WorkMax (across numerous modules) that are not available in AboutTime. AboutTime customers will want to look at a complete demo of the WorkMax platform.
  • If I switch will my historical AboutTime data be in WorkMax?

    You will choose a date where you stop using AboutTime and start using WorkMax. Any data/records prior to the switch would be referenced in your historical AboutTime system. Everything new would then be stored in WorkMax. WorkMax can integrate with the same accounting and business systems that AboutTime Enterprise does.
  • What about setup, implementation, product updates and ongoing maintenance?

    Because WorkMax is web-based the setup/install/implementation process is drastically streamlined and improved in WorkMax. New customers can start learning and using the system the same day they purchase WorkMax. A major advantage to web-based solutions is agility with product updates, instead of "annual software releases," with WorkMax we can get product fixes, enhancements and features out to customers MUCH quicker, without additional pain and disruption. With WorkMax, there are no annual SSM contracts. Technical support is included and all the product updates are applied to the WorkMax cloud environment for you.
