10000ft

I think 10000ft is good for bare minimum project monitoring, we used it a large company because we didn't need to have exact numbers - it was just a rough idea to see where freelance resources were over burning. If, however you work a much smaller company and really need to know detailed information it's not as effective, there are many other software options that really allow for much closer and precise tracking. I would recommend 10000ft for companies that just need to monitor large freelance teams, track hours and higher level projects that are also monitored on other project management tools. It's a tool I would only use in conjunction with something else.

Avaza

We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • Project Management - Creating projects and tasks is really easy
  • Timesheets - Logging time is super quick and simple.

Cons

  • It's often confusing to use and find things, I sometimes find it to be a little counterintuitive as to where functions are (e.g. for tracking budgets and pulling reports).
  • When pulling a budget I always struggled to comb through the large amounts of data and time inputted. When I select a filter the page often wouldn't refresh or i'd forget to de-select a filter as it wasn't in an obvious place, which sometimes left me with pulling an incorrect budget.
  • The data is only as good as the people entering the time. Often with so many small tasks people would enter time incorrectly, in the wrong milestone or project. It lists all of your projects on one page, so it's not easy to enter it and there's a lot of room for error.
  • Recurring Projects - Right now you can create recurring tasks with a project, but if you have a project that recurs monthly with a client, as we do, you have to manually create it. Ideally, we want to be able to have this happen automatically.
  • Xero Integration - If you create an invoice based on hours, you aren't able to adjust the inventory type. Also, for the integration, you are not able to have endless inventory types mapped to GL accounts in Xero. You can only have one catch-all if you are creating invoices from timesheets.
  • Stripe/ACH Integration - Since it already integrates with Stripe to accept payments, it would be great if the user can choose ACH through Stripe instead of just Credit Card. The functionality already exists on the Stripe end, but it has not been integrated with Avaza, yet! Recurring payment options would be great as well.
  • Estimates - It would be awesome if invoices worked more like Quotes or Proposals where the client can choose an option, accept and provide a signature.

I think there's limited uses for the tool and much more comprehensive options out there for multiple tools in one. With more people working remotely, it's hard to just use email and face to face, in some ways you need to have a tool that's a fall back and a record of where you are + where you're going

Alternatives Considered

Although an interesting tool, compared to Basecamp or Workfront, 10000ft really struggles on the collaboration aspect of the tool. It's great for the bare minimum, recording hours and pulling a budget, but we also relied on email for collaboration and face to face meetings - which is no bad thing! Although for big companies and small projects it's nice to have everything all in one tool so there's less jumping and room for error. That would be my recommendation for any company evaluating it
This is miles ahead of ActiveCollab. It has more features, the interface is easier to use and the invoicing is easier to use. Across the board better. We migrated from ActiveCollab, but that was just essentially a Fancier Wunderlist. If you just need one project and a few tasks it works, but for company use, it is overly complex, yet missing a lot of features as well.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - We were able to track multiple projects at the same time and record accurate hours.
  • Positive - Able to pull budget and excel reports which can the be analyzed further and relatively simply.
  • Negative - There were a lot of times when hours were entered inaccurately which left us in a bind with budget and freelance billing.
  • It has streamlined a lot of our work.
  • It keeps us, as admins, in the know with all the projects for our team.
