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.

Zenkit

Well suited to most small business productivity requirements. Can be used as a basic CRM, used to manage projects. There are even use case templates for ERP, Inventory & Order Management, Document Management & HR. So in the absence of software covering these business functions in a business, they could use Zenkit to manage these simple processes at a bargain price (Free or $9per user per month depending on subscription).Less appropriate if you have more complex business process requirements.

  • Addition of custom fields which included numbers
  • In table view this can be filtered & numbered fields can have totals at the top.
  • Zenkit has handy pre-buitl templates for different kinds of use such a CRM
  • Has the ability to change field content across cards via bulk action. Neat!
  • Can have formulas in Cutom fields

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.

  • App sometimes a wee bit slow to sync but this has improved
  • Would like ability to reorder the position of a custom field in the card
  • Currently can't link emails to cards as in other CRM systems (ie use a bcc dropbox email address)

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

In a previous review for Trello I said it was great, which it is. Zenkit, however, is Trello on steroids and previously only thing holding me back from moving totally to Zenkit was the fact they didn't have mobile apps. They now have a both Android & Iphone apps. So I will be completing the transition across to Zenkit. Will still use Trello on occasion.

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.

  • For the price, it is definitely worth a punt.
  • Helped me manage tasks, processes and strategic goals thus saving time & being more efficient.
  • SImple to learn & plenty of tutorials so onboarding was straightforward.
