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.

Insightly

Insightly is a great CRM system allowing for organization of prospects, clients, and company partners. The interface is great and it allows for easy sorting of tasks, projects, and opportunities. It does, however, need a lot of work in the reporting aspect of a CRM. When having a report sent it to you it comes out in an Excel sheet, and if you have your report total up the sum of a number (I.e. the total number of opps, some of the opps,) it doesn't translate into that Excel sheet. Also, there needs to be a reporting dashboard.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • File Management. It helps keeps all of our files that we link with our customers in their particular records so we don't have to go hunting for them.
  • With the integration to QuickBooks it allows us to get a 30,000 foot view of our finances.
  • The project management feature is nice as it allows us to keep manage our deliverables a lot better so tasks don't fall through the cracks.

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.
  • Free version very basic
  • Pricey
  • More integration with other apps

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

Knock on wood... I haven't had any difficulties with Insightly's availability to-date. I mostly use it on my desktop and infrequently access via my Android phone. No access issues.

The online videos and FAQ are very helpful for a general working knowledge of the product. More detailed questions have been submitted to the support staff and they've always been timely in their reply. They don't always give the desired answer but they do get back quickly.

I've used Insightly's online training &/ or learned as I went. I've found the blogs and online written material helpful. I've also attended a few webinars, which can be useful if you use a J-I-T approach so as not to overwhelm you (or your staff) with functionality that you are using just yet. The fact that it's all available on their website and you can learn at your own pace is invaluable

The only missing thing at this time that would make our implementation complete would be a tighter integration with Xero allowing us to send quotes and report on quotes from Insightly!Xero has, excuse the pun, ZERO reporting on quotes sent!!!They are both very good products, however it's the little things that make good GREAT!

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
First it is very rare to find a CRM that combines the traditonal CRM function as well as Project Management. Insightly is not as pricey as other CRMs like Salesforce or Infusionsoft. The free version is a great way for a small business owner to actually use the CRM for as long as possible.

As our company has grown with clients and employees, Insightly continues to provide superior service as a CRM. Additionally Insightly support is outstanding with continuous improvements, tools and response time

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.
  • Better client follow up and opportunity tracking
  • More cost-effective than SalesForce
