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.

Trello

It doesn't matter if you are a freelancer, a small agency, a startup or a big company, as Trello is useful for all above-mentioned types of businesses. It's great for tracking daily tasks, as well as using as a tool to write down ideas. For example, I know people using Trello for their grocery shopping list and also know freelancers who use it to organize their tasks.

Pros

  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.

  • Project management across any size team
  • Sales CRM's can be built for free. Using power add-ons such as custom fields and integrations with gmail it is the best kept Sales CRM secret.
  • Collaboration for content management, content marketing and client on-boarding processes.

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.

  • Growing number of paid features. As with any growing freemium platforms, Trello is increasingly adding more and more paid features that can be a little annoying to long time users of the free versions. Still, it's nothing too expensive and they haven't gated a ton of stuff that you can't live without.
  • Missing some PM-specific stuff. Since we use Trello as a PM tool, there are still some things that don't fully transfer from a more traditional tool (like Basecamp or Asana). These include things like automatically checking a task completed and having it move elsewhere (you can't do this in Trello without some major integrations).

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

I'm not in charge of such a decision, but I am sure that we will continue to use Trello for the same purposes we have in the past.

It is simple to use to begin with, and very scalable but could do with some design improvements and additional features to make it the user friendly and usable level it could be potentially

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

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

Redbooth is probably the most comparable product out there. I've reviewed this product and tested it against Trello. Redbooth is very robust with some additional very attractive features. It also integrates well with Google for business platforms and SharePoint. It works very much like Trello but with a lot of additional ways to report and track tasks. We chose Trello because it keeps everything simple and the price point was a better match for what we were looking for.

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.

  • I used Trello for a while but ended up going back to good ole paper and pencil when it came to day to day tasks. In that sense, I don't think it is well suited as a project management tool for an individual. There is definitely potential for team activities.
  • There has been no negative impact. If anything, I would say slightly positive as my team can view projects on a large scale.
  • I think with a few upgrades to the tool belt it could be a nice software to use.
