it is tailored very much for the american market from what i have seen of it so far.
it is essentially a filemaker pro 'front-end' and as such looks quite customisable. i must admit that i haven't looked through it in any detail - i have downloaded the demo for a look and just scanned through it's various features.
anybody using it?

There is also the IMS -Architectronica Information Management System available from the site of Barry Isakson, AIA - www.architectronica.com, a consulting architect to the digital dffice also based on the Filemaker engine.
Barry has the dubious distinction of introducing me to the first Mac Plus computer and converting my office to the new age of computing.

and the one I use as its cheap and does one job very well ie sending out invoices and keeping a track of them is StudioBoss. Again FileMaker based but is a stand alone app so you don't need to buy FileMaker to use it. It is Mac only though
I am trying out iBiz. It is a project time/billing/report software that I am trying a demo of. It is only for the Mac though. It is integrated with the address book, mail, iCal Mac applications. I like it so far.
I'm uncertain if this forum is still active, but here goes..
I use Ibiz software as mentioned below, I find however that the integrating thing is a bit problematic. I cant quite put my finger on it, but the software seems cumbersome and not very user-friendly. An Ical interface would be an improvement, where you actually enter your time info in an ical interface.
I've also downloaded a program called TIMELOG @ http://shareware.mediaatelier.com/ . This has a really easy to understand interface, but no automatic billing facility. I have not yet spent enough time really to evaluate both completely.
What would be great is to have one integrated solution that does it all in a relatively simple and uncomplicated manner.
From reading the AIM and Archioffice pdf brochures, they seem to do most of this. However Archioffice seems to require an annual subscription cost as well as a purchase cost, as well as requiring a purchase of Filemaker Pro. The same goes for AIM in terms of Filemaker, I still have to investigate the costs of AIM.
Does anyone know of any other possible options?
