Cameron from Enspire Solutions | Sydney, Australia 

"The buying process was seriously easy and seamless. I did a lot testing with the trial before committing to Abtrac. I knew of Abtrac previously from a couple of colleagues who were using it in their businesses and they spoke highly of it.

We’ve found it easy to grow rapidly and scale up our business with Abtrac being an integral part of our infrastructure.

It has helped to systemise our processes, whilst adding value to our business. When new staff come on board we provide them with a welcome pack, which includes showing them core functionality within Abtrac, including how to navigate projects and other areas they need to manage. Our team are all enthusiastic Abtrac users.

It’s great to see Abtrac take on board our feedback and implement new features and functionality – a real testament to the value you provide. We appreciate being able to work closely with the team at Abtrac to our mutual advantage."

Consulting Engineers Reviews

Myles from SurveyPlus | Sydney Australia

"After 10 years of owning a business, I've learned that my instincts and 'gut' are often correct. But having the data to either back them up or shut them up is invaluable. There's no time spent worrying about what might be happening - you already know.

No one loves the idea of filling out a timesheet, but if your systems are set up thoroughly and accurately using a provider such as Abtrac, they can be extremely simple and take only a minute or two each day. And the rewards are enormous, as most surveying firms are perfectly structured to measure their inputs and outputs extremely accurately when compared to many other professions."

Cilla van Heerden from Terra Consultants | Auckland, New Zealand

"Just a big thank you for such a smooth transition from the desktop version to Abtrac online. I can honestly say this was the smoothest and easiest software conversion I have ever experienced in my life. Well done. I am a big fan of ABTRAC and the support team in New Zealand is amazing!"

Deborah from SBA Architects | Sydney, Australia

"I’ve just finished the invoice training session with Edward and although there was a lot to take in, I feel confident attempting the process on my own. I know the backup is superb and always at hand if & when needed. Your support is excellent – no problem too small (or large) to help with.

We have found this software not only a wonderful benefit to the company, but also so seamless to implement. You’ve taken the ‘hard work’ out of the software & thought of everything.

Thanks again, and please pass on my compliments to Edward. He deserves the accolades."

John from Risk Management Essentials | Melbourne, Australia

"Our ability to know what was happening in the business is no longer an issue and we have just appointed 3 more consultants even though the country is 50% locked down.

I would just like to mention how reliable and effective your software product is and how, with a little bit of training, easy it is to use. It is clear that it has been designed by a business person and not a code cutter.

The amendments to reports you have made for us have been terrific and my team have taken to the system and onboarded really well."

It’s all about identifying and managing how you earn your revenue, before it hits your back office accounting system. It’s time to retire those cumbersome spreadsheets and stop giving away your time.

Whether you are on a trial or have a paid subscription Abtrac has free telephone and email support between the hours of 8.00 am – 4:00 pm AEST and AEDT.

Unscheduled calls are limited to 20 minutes each, but most involve a quick question and answer and you’re back on track.

You can send an email to our support team as and when required. Responses are guaranteed to be treated with priority. Most are actioned within an hour.

We have a knowledgebase where you can search for your questions and if you have an AbtracOnline account there is a help section in the menu with the most commonly asked questions which are answered in text or video formats.

For those longer calls or training sessions, these can be scheduled and one of our team can spend more time with you answering more in-depth questions.

Does Abtrac have an online timesheet app

Out on site or in the field? - You have the full power of Abtrac Online from anywhere. 

We don’t have an online timesheet app per se. But that’s because Abtrac is so much more than an app based system.

You and your staff need the full range of functionality in Abtrac Online whether out on site or in the office. And this is always available simply by logging into www.abtraconline.com on any web enabled device.

So whether your employees are sitting at their desk or on their way to their next appointment, they can login and enter their time, check out the status of a job, update a client’s phone number or verify their schedule for next week.

Abtrac gives you all your customers contact information, projects, tasks, timesheet entries and invoices in one accessible system, all at the tip of your fingers, no matter where you are.

How Secure is Abtrac in the cloud?

In short, Abtrac's online job management software is extremely secure!

We understand that embracing any new system can be a big decision.

The cloud is changing the way we consume, share, and use digital information because it makes access to information and computing power easier, faster, more affordable, and under the right circumstances like Abtrac, more secure.


Abtrac Online standard practise security measure

 The entire system, web site and database, is hosted in the Microsoft Azure environment, with all their standard security measures. 

In addition we have applied some of our own.

All network communications to and from Abtrac Online job management software are encrypted through the enforced use of the secure https (SSL) protocol.

User credentials are securely stored and validated using Microsoft's Membership 'module'. This is an industry standard development component that has been well tested and widely implemented. No page nor report can be accessed other than by a user who has legitimately logged in. Anyone trying any ‘back door’ entrance to any part of Abtrac will be diverted to the log in screen if they have not already had their credentials verified. In addition, the Abtrac system itself implements its own security layer to enable clients to control staff access to pages and data in ‘user groups’ which can have permissions established by your Abtrac administrator. All users who log into Abtrac have to belong to one such group. Access to each individual Abtrac report is similarly controlled by administrators in your office.

For added security our website strictly implements a design pattern to ensure that all publically exposed database requests can only ever return a dataset for a single client. This is to limit the ability of a malicious user being able to retrieve data en-masse from the system.

We have also built protection into Abtrac to prevent malicious intrusion from web robots. We automatically lock out any login if it fails to correctly combine user name and password within five attempts. And of course passwords are compliant with industry standards requiring a minimum number of characters and character types.

Full access to the database, required for our support, maintenance and development of the system, is restricted to Abtrac's own secure office network. We maintain updated anti-virus and firewall software and also limit the use of remote connections to our secure network.

Abtrac Online uses the Microsoft SQL Server Azure database. SQL Azure is an enterprise data storage solution. The version of SQL Azure we use has built-in business continuity features including point-in-time recovery and geo-redundancy. Furthermore, we independently have an hourly incremental backup and at least one full database backup daily which is stored in another regional data centre. We maintain a 30 day rolling backup.

Abtrac's Two Factor Authentication

As recommended by more and more industry leaders we also recommend that you turn on Two Factor Authentication (not only for Abtrac but anything where you store sensitive information). 

Abtrac's Two Factor Authentication ensures your users not only have their own Abtrac secured password but they also have to have access to the email account assigned to their Abtrac login. Before they can gain access to Abtrac they will have to input a security code that is sent to their email. 

Abtrac's password settings

Not only do your users have to have a secured password set with a minimum length with certain characters used, but you can also force users to change passwords every 31 days.

Security in the future

As technology is continuously evolving, we routinely review our security measures to ensure we’re protecting your on line data in a solid security foundation that spans across all platforms.

Join the journey

When your information is in the cloud, you can access it from anywhere you connect online. You don’t need to carry it with you on a computer nor build large data centres to store it. And you don’t need to manually update your software if it is provided to you through a cloud-based service.

If you are well into evaluating Abtrac and you have any further queries or concerns about security if committing to our cloud job management software, give us a call or drop us an email.
