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.

MeisterTask

MeisterTask is great for any situation where there are multiple projects with lots of details, complication, multiple people working on a project, and different contexts to work with. It's probably less appropriate for a simple situation where there is less to keep up with, for instance, individual, personal use where someone just needs a simple to-do list.

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.

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

From my perspective, MeisterTask's unique value comes from its deep connection with MindMeister (mind mapping tool) starting with this and then being able instantly to sync the map into a Kanban/scrum type board. I am a very heavy Trello user and most of my work is held in Trello - both tools are exceptional. Trello has the edge because more people use it, MeisterTask has the edge because of the mind mapping thing. Personally, I find it hard to 'think' or 'brainstorm' in Trello - it works better for me keeping focused. I used stories on board to 'think' before sending it to Trello and this worked for me too - however I found myself coming back to the mind mapping thing when I needed to grind on a stream of creative consciousness.
Collecting assets or information on a card for a post or email is best in Airboard and then linking to the Meister Task or Trello card.
Trello does have a slight edge here with the pro version as MailChimp, Publicate and Twitter link directly to each card with the power up feature.

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.

  • Structural integrity of tasks in projects became possible. It provides status transparency.
  • Defining workflow helped develop routine in task management.
  • Routine increased efficiency (where it can, of course).
  • Increased efficiency lead to reduced effort and time requirements, thus greater chance for not passing due dates and a slight rise in quality.
