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.

ZenHub

If you have more than 2 developers this thing is basically a requirement within github to manage sprints if you use agile methodology. Why use a different website entirely when you can run your entire board right from github itself? I've tried other solutions but basing everything on github issues makes it so no duplicate work has to take place. If the UX quirks and mobile were fixed this would be 10/10 for me!If you're only one or two devs on a team it may be overkill to use, but if you're going to scale it's better to put the process in early.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • Makes it very easy to get a high-level overview of sprints and sprint progress, creates burndown charts, etc
  • UX is top notch, almost everything works intuitively
  • You can create issues and epics right from the interface, basically all github issue functionality is available through zenbhub
  • Embeds into github using an extension so you don't need an external site
  • Free starter plan good to test and for small dev teams

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.
  • Mobile experience is hard as it's a board layout. Could use a dedicated app.
  • Has some UX quirks that rear their heads randomly, i.e. can't convert an issue to an epic if you click the wrong button when creating
  • May have recently moved to all-paid for companies with a 14 day trial, used to be free for small teams

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

Almost amazing with a few hiccoughs. Mobile is a big one and also sometimes you want to run a filter or something and the outcome is not what you would expect.

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
Way better than competition if you use github because it seamlessly integrates without doing anything. You don't need to duplicate your issues, etc. As long as your devs already use github and github issues this will be a no brainer and simple to implement. With JIRA or Trello we were doing everything twice, things got dropped, etc.

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.
  • Saving dev time, making it easier to create a process they enjoy and use without issue (intangible)
  • Making conversations between developers and product teams/easy to facilitate (intangible)
  • Sped up the entire process (intangible)
