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.

Dropbox

I strongly prefer Dropbox over other systems like Carbonite or Google Docs. It is much more user friendly, and functions as a server where all my documents are stored, but that I have access to when I'm offline. Then when I next connect with a wireless network, it sync's everything back up. For a small organization that can't afford it's own IT department but that needs a documents server, Dropbox is the only solution I've found that fits all our needs

  • Drag and drop feature is extremely user-friendly and it allows you to upload endless files.
  • Ability to organize documents, photos.
  • Easy to share documents with anyone by emailing them the link or simply entering their email when you choose to share the file. You are able to share with multiple people and you could also include a message when sharing the files.

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.

  • The small free storage space can be expanded, of course, you can expand the storage, which has a cost.
  • You can access the tool only if you have access to the Internet, which limits access to information
  • When sharing files, you should not work on the same file at the same time, since it is because two copies of the file are created. You can only synchronize what is inside the folder that is created automatically.

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

Even though it has its shortcomings, Dropbox is an exceptionally useful product for simple file sharing. It’s intelligent design and user-friendly interface have continued to facilitate project completion. However, as we expand, we will probably look to other solutions for storage and sharing as we undertake larger and more intensely collaborative projects

It's storage, not rocket science. It's easy, as it should be. I don't consider what minor issues I do have as deal-breakers. Just don't interfere with my experience & I'm perfectly OK.

I needed to stay current in improving my daily operations. Dropbox
was suggested to me by a former colleague two-years ago and I've been using it just fine ever since.

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

Actually the use of tools is very similar in hosting functionality that allows users to store and synchronize files online and between computers and share files and folders with others, generate greater employee productivity and better business results. Both allow you to store large amounts of data safely, create backup copies of your files and share with your contacts.

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.

  • As a musician I make mixes of songs and I need to save videos and photographs. Dropbox is a favorite place to store all my information.
  • Sometimes I have wanted to store information, but this is very bad and the free storage of 2GB is very [limited].
