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.

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.
  • Planning is weak in Projectplace. The Projectplace plan is essentially an illustration only; there is no critical path determination and activities can start before dependencies are complete. We are building project schedules in MS project, then importing to Projectplace and manually highlighting the critical path as a 2-step process. Projectplace only offers start-to-finish dependency between tasks, other relationships will be useful.
  • No undo button. It's too easy to accidentally change the project plan (duration, or start/end dates) with a mouse click.
  • Document edits... Word documents, when opened for editing and with change tracking enabled, do not inherit the audit trail of Word. We cannot tell who made edits or comments to a document because they are all marked with "author".
  • In Planning, duration assumes calendar days vs. working days. No ability to override and input holidays or non-working days.
  • There is no correlation between cards and plans. If an activity is expected to take 1 day and there are cards that total more than 24 hours of activity, Projectplace does not alert or indicate that an impossible scenario has occurred. The effort estimates vs. actual are simply a tally of information entered. There is no checking or validation of planned vs. actual effort.

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
In caparison, Projectplace “Ticked all the boxes” for collaboration, task management, mobility and ease of use.

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.
  • Can't really say
