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.

Oracle Primavera

Primavera is well suited for any size projects. The only time I can see it being less appropriate is when the cost of the software and maintenance agreement add significantly to the overall cost. Smaller projects could use a cheaper tool to get the job done depending on level of detail the client is looking for.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • P6 allows the schedule to be built on the project site and to be accessed remotely by upper-level management and the scheduling department for review. This allows our large organization to operate off the same schedule without worrying about multiple versions, and without any hassle.
  • P6 is a flexible software. It performs well on large and small projects. Large projects do not lag, and the WBS structure allows the schedule to stay organized.
  • P6 is improved over previous versions in the ease in which changes can be saved or un-done. Mistakes can be easily fixed and reversed.

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.
  • Some of the views in P6 are hard to adjust.
  • Printing from P6 can be difficult.

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
P6 is the most robust scheduling software I've used. It's the best solution for large-scale projects.

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.
  • We definitely got our investment back
  • If anything, it was a tool that made us all aware of job costs & creep
