Flow

Flow is great for a team that is managing many projects with a lot of different players involved. It lets people really drill down into the projects that they are a part of without getting distracted by everyone else's work. The features like "focus work" and muting notifications are great for a fast-paced workplace which creates distractions. It is too robust for smaller teams or individual work.

Pros

  • Time tracking because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

Cons

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • Better integration with Google Calendar -- it could be a bit clunky
  • The mobile app didn't have as much functionality as one would like - you had to download two apps to access the features used on a desktop version

Alternatives Considered

I love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

Flow is the best all-in-one solution. It is better than Todoist because of it's more robust features and the ability for project nesting and is way easier to use than Basecamp. It is not as effective at content management as Trello or Airtable because it is not designed for those tasks. Since it is specifically built for project management, it is better than Trello or Airtable which are more multi-functional.

Return on Investment

  • It positively organized our time tracking and the reporting was robust enough to use for client meetings.
  • It negatively took up more time to do certain tasks that shouldn't be so time consuming.
