Yeah, right. As if a "humble freelancer" can afford $200.

Interesting that this software is still around. The number of comments here has been 0 for the last few years, so I imagine the number of users is going down instead of up. Makes sense, as this software is fairly expensive compared to other better solutions (Redbooth, etc). The UI also still looks dated. And you have to sign up for their cloud service to do any kind of syncing.

Hey Tim,

You don't need to sign up for the Cloud to sync, you can do that using your own private server if you'd like. Also the number of comments here has gone down because download sites like this seem to have fallen out of popularity. Studiometry is still running strong and being actively developed.

I wonder why it hasn't been updated for retina displays. It looks pretty bad.

Yes it does - especially on an iMac 27 Retina. It's very powerful, and it was the best replacement I could find for iBiz after the developers abandoned it— but it certainly lacks in the look and feel department; it's also not the most intuitive piece of software — not Mac like at all (all around).

Just installed the Trial version and it look great. Unfortunately it is limited the US, as the currency used is only $. No chance to change it to €. The app I need is already on my mac but I can't use it...so frustrating. Hope the developer will add other currencies soon.....

OK, I was totally wrong. Forget everything I mentioned in my previous comment, except that I really like Studiometry. However, I must have been blind, this app supports multiple currencies of course... I think that at the end of the trial period I am going to buy it. So far I am satisfied...

To sum it up, value for money, a solid range of features and sweet options to make those reports and invoices the best damn looking bills anyone will ever see! Way back in 2006 I chose Studiometry to run the small ad agency I was in charge of. I looked at a few competitors others I knew were using, but the annual running costs were just unjustifiable. The initial outlay for Studiometry is solid value, and the upgrades down the track are super affordable, but having said that if you don't want to upgrade and skip a version, it all works just fine until you do decide to. We needed a project management and estimate/invoicing solution and I found the trial of Studiometry to be a breeze, and within a short time I had purchased a copy for the staff at the agency. Each version upgrade since then has been a big leap. 6 years later I still highly recommend this software to freelancers and small studios and agencies alike. The customer support is brilliant (I have had some queries answered literally in minutes!) but otherwise the ticketing feedback process is easy to use. Another thing I love about this is you can also make feature requests and work with the developers in improvements for all users.

I've already bought Studiometry but haven't upgraded yet. I'm currently using the now painfully-unsupported Billings app (it's been useful, but in no way does it offer the features I'm looking for anymore). Seeing you've been using it for close to 6 years, I was wondering if you ever took the time to look at SaaS solutions like Freshbooks. Do you feel like the network components like approvable estimates and automatic late fees are hindering Studiometry? Have you ever tought about making the switch and, more importantly, if you decided to stay with Studiometry, what made you choose it over others? This isn't a review as much as a question, but most invoicing apps reviews are outdated and I'd be curious to have a recent point of view. Thanks for sharing your toughts!

Hey Gabp, look I only know Studiometry, and prior to that we did a heck of a lots of manual stuff (invoicing from excel says it all!). Certainly for the price point I don't believe it can be beat, it has a lot of features I don't even use yet, but the core stuff I need is searchable data across the client base. It's pretty much like this for me 1. Create Client 2. Create Project attached to Client 3. Then just go from there for example 3a. Time your work on said project 3b. Enter manual costs and project info 3c. Create Estimate (Quote) to sent to Client 4. Invoice client 5. Track overdue invoices 6. Enter payments (can be done as whole invoice payment or you can manually eneter partial payments and allocate them to an invoice) 7. Once job invoice is paid close it off. Hope that helps cheers volcanic

We've been using Studiometry for a solid year now; just updated to v10. We have a small graphic design studio in which 3 of us need to communicate clearly with one another at every stage of the way, both financially, in job tracking/status and with updates/details of the job. When searching for a project management software I was overwhelmed by the choice out there. Most were either crazy costly and required we purchase an ongoing online webservice (with ongoing monthly fees), or they were intended for huge software production companies with all sorts of features that did not apply to us. (Not that you couldn't use Studiometry for such complex teams.) Setting up our business in Studiometry, like any in-depth application, took a little while to get used to. But we weren't looking for a dumbed down solution aimed at the LCD (lowest common denominator) user, we wanted something that would grow with our learning curve, being as complex as we needed it to be. That Studiometry delivered on. Setting up the project management was a bit tricky for us. But in our case, there was a factor that must be considered in our learning curve (and anyone's assessment). We, as a team, weren't versed in working with a project management software. If we had come to the program with the foundation of flow charts, gantt world and such we would have sailed through our initial setup pains. But this was our own lacking, not Studiometry. Basically, we depend 100% on running our business through Studiometry now. It runs excellent reports--so much so that we can extract and review exactly the info that we wish to extract. We can check our profitability, our current job statuses, how much we've earned, how much is owed to us, etc, etc. We've become a smarter business because of Studiometry and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Any lackings that we've found have only been within ourselves, not the program! It's overflowing with as many features as you'd ever need. Just take the time to learn the basics, both of the program and your own skills as a business person. The price is easily a fraction of what the ongoing web based PM run and if you set it up with a server you can get the same anywhere-anytime accessibility. The phone/itouch app is great, too. As a graphic designer I'd like to see a sexier interface, but it's not atrocious by any means. And I'll take substance over flash any day.

With every new version- Studiometry keeps getting more useful. We've seen requests for changes integrated into the program- and finally- quickbooks integration. We've recently been growing and have had to train new employees how to use it- and have been surprised at how quickly they picked it up. The program has also become super stable- and even synching issues seem to be a thing of the past. If it wasn't for Studiometry- we'd never have been able to grow and manage as many projects as we have in house now.

Studiometry is feature rich but customer support was minus zero. I was ready to plop $4,000 for the server edition. But when we had major issues with it we got a response ten days later. I am running a business. I cannot wait that long for support. I would rather pay 10-20k to have a web based CRM solution written for my company.

That's really good to know. I was about to recommend it to some customers of ours that wanted to move away from QuickBooks/Intuit, but this is a showstopper for them with their experience levels.

First off, I'd like to say sorry to Tony for the delay with their support inquiries during their trial. We did have a delay one of the times responding to Tony's company as we were very backed up at that time with many inquiries, and we're a smaller company so we respond much quicker via email and support tickets as opposed to over the phone. We are usually very fast at responding to support questions (almost always same-day), so if anyone has a question or needs any help with our software, please feel free to contact us at support.oranged.net and see our support response time.

It's interesting, or perhaps telling, that it took Oranged over 7 months to reply to Tony2u's comment. Maybe they were prompted by ylluminate's comment, but even so, it was 10 days after that. I would like to hear more from people about their experience with support from Oranged Software. It doesn't look great so far.

@Oranged. Thanks for the note, though it seems that it would be slightly disingenuous to say that you have to monitor this particular site. I'm pretty sure you receive e-mail notifications about comments made here. Regardless, I hope that if I invest in your product, your main support channel delivers reasonable replies to queries and requests for assistance.

@kpublik I'm a developer and have had the same problems that Oranged has had with these reviews. Developers don't get any sort of notification when someone posts something here, so it won't be seen until we happen to read through the reviews. It's very frustrating for those of us that really try to provide good support - if you (or anyone else) has issues with someone's software, please contact the developer through their support channel(s), not here.

We've been users since version 1 or 2 (it's been a long time). Since version 8 shipped, we've had almost zero problems- plus, it keeps getting better. The latest upgrade really starts to make this software invaluable- the ability to integrate with Apple Mail has us moving away from Thunderbird- and makes Studiometry into a CRM system. Yes, the price has gone up over the years- but, I can say that if it weren't for Studiometry, we'd probably not be in business still- it's an invaluable tool for any business that works on a project basis and has to manage many clients all at once. We're still learning the feature set in 9.0.1, but it's a really great revision. The only reason I don't rate it a 5.0 is that the interface is getting pretty busy- with all the features added, some things aren't as intuitive as they could be.

This program pays for itself if you run a real business. I have multiple employees and we work both in the office and at home sometimes. The ability to track hours any time, any place is crucial to running a profitable design studio. Its so easy to keep track of open jobs and expanses with this program. I really only use it for time tracking because I use quickbooks for invoicing, but I am sure it is solid in that respect too. Unlike some other reviews I am not crazy about their tech support. I have had several tickets go unanswered, and I was shocked to see how outdated the manual was when I bought version 8 (the manual was referring to version 5 in some spots). I did, however get answers in the forums and a few tickets I opened did get replies. Overall the minor issues I had with support do not outweigh the incredible value of this. If you're complaining about the cost then you are not making enough money and you should reconsider your business plan. Suggesting base camp or any other free solution is a replacement is laughable. It costs money for a reason, it works. Do yourself a favor and get this program, you won't regret it.
