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.

It is well suited for diverse and matrixed project teams especially those that are geographically dispersed. [It's also well suited] If you have a large number of documents that need to be approved and need to track that approval. It is also nice that team members (like a client) do not have to purchase a license to use Projectplace.ProjectPlace is not well suited if you have to do any sort of resource scheduling or forecasting, or if you need that to drive the project schedule. I wasn't thrilled with the WBS management functionality so if you need to have a robust WBS you might consider a different tool.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • Project planning
  • Project monitoring
  • Document sharing
  • User-friendly

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.
  • Combining projects into programmes and portfolios is possible, but not as easy.
  • Simultaneous editing as supported by many other products is not possible.
  • The synch functionality can be a bit buggy or at least lacks user-friendliness, making it possible for documents to come out of synch and into multiple copies.
  • The pricing model and the management of the user count is cumbersome. Which users can be deleted? The model is developed around organisations locking into set packages.

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

We're committed now & have >50 users on Projectplace. All our projects are now tracked in the tool. We this investment of time & training, the cost of maintaining Projectplace is relatively low for the benefit. So we will renew, even if there are some idiosyncrasies in the tool & there are opportunities for improvement.

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
Microsoft Project is most powerful for scheduling, critical chain analysis, resource leveling, etc. However, Microsoft Project could not resolve resources allocated across multiple projects, schedules are not dynamically updated with progress, and difficult to build a portfolio view.LiquidPlanner has a great Monte Carlo simulation estimation engine and supports Agile methodology. However, LiquidPlanner's premise of prioritizing projects and tasks linearly made it difficult to run projects using LiquidPlanner. Also, there's no 'offline' sandbox area to run scenarios for building new projects.Playbook has a great collaboration, Agile workspace. It's easy to use. However, the tool was buggy and needs maturity. Also plans needed to be very detailed in Playbook, which is not scaleable for any sizeable project.Projectplace by itself is an easy to use collaboration tool which provided enough planning, enough collaboration, enough time reporting and enough Kanban/Agile methodology support. The true benefit of Projectplace over the other tools is the collaboration between Projectplace and Innotas for resource management.

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.
  • Prior to Projectplace, we did not have project time tracking so we had no sense of the actual project cost. Now that we have Projectplace and have set up everyone to enter and track time, we have better visibility and actual data for projects.
  • Prior to Projectplace, teams were used to a project plan given to them with task durations and estimates done by someone else. With Projectplace, team members are planning the activities they need to perform and estimating effort. They are more accountable for their deliverables.
  • Since Projectplace's planning isn't powerful, we are maintaining an MS Project schedule and a Projectplace schedule, which requires effort we didn't need to do before.
