AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Flow

This seems to be a great fit for small teams as the at-a-glance approach works wonders for breaking up the vast amount of projects. You can add subtasks as well to keep the high-level folders at a minimum. Not sure how well it will do in an asset-heavy (i.e. agency) setting. Need to test that functionality more.

  • Design: very easy to discern what is important at a glance. The UX just works; it's very well thought out.
  • Ease of use: onboarding was a breeze. Was up and running in less than an hour.
  • Support: in-app support is great, nice website too to find exactly the solutions we needed.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

  • Would like to have request forms added to the workflow. We have to do those manually then add to the project.
  • Would love to have the ability to route proofs to external users for feedback and keep the reviews in the project

Alternatives Considered

Asana and Freedcamp are similar, but I feel Flow is easier to hit the ground running with. Add a strong mobile component (apps) and great customer support I feel they are doing PM software the right way. However, Asana is huge and constantly adding features, so over time the big players may easily address their pain points. There are so many similar programs like this now.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.

  • As the price is very low comparative to other similar software, it's an amazing value for what you get.
  • Everyone seems to enjoy the ease of use, so buy in was high from the beginning
  • The consolidation of our work as a whole has made Flow one of our top PM choices
