The user interface is very good. It is more intuitive in nature. It is easy to use and robust in operation. The dashboard is designed on modernized UI and the interface is also intuitive. I can easily navigate things on my own.

Pros

Backlog

  • Gantt chart
  • Github support

Function Point Productivity Software

  • Time tracking - like several time tracking solutions, FP uses a clock that will track in real time so that you do not need to remember how long you worked on a project to input later.
  • Dashboards - I love FP's dashboards that let me track my personal utilization, the utilization of my team members and all of my open tasks.
  • Reporting - FP's reports provide insight organization-wide into how we are doing and where we (as an organization) are spending our time. As with any reporting, though, it is important to manage the cleanliness of your data to make the reporting useful.

Cons

Backlog

  • The biggest drawback that I want Backlog to fix as soon as possible is that is does not provide any place to explain the problem or bug virtually.
  • There is a need for a tab or space to attach screenshot or video to easily explain the bug or problem in the project.

Function Point Productivity Software

  • Function Point often provided reports that were inaccurate due to bad calculations. The support team would work with us to troubleshoot these issues, but the fact remained that calculations were wrong.
  • Function Point was purchased by a new parent company that increased prices over their nearest, superior, competitor, pricing themselves out of the market.
  • Function Point's interface is dated, as is its code base.
  • New features are being implemented not as software revisions or upgrades, but as new for-pay features.

Backlog has all of the top-notch features to increase productivity, visibility, and project tracking. Backlog is easy to use. I first just logged in to the platform and it was [ready] to go. I easily started working on it and it started giving me the bugs’ details on our project. Always available for queries. Listen to the queries very attentively and try to give a solution on the go if applicable. Otherwise, take some time and respond with the advanced workable solution in the limited time frame.

Function Point Productivity Software

Workamajig was NOT a good fit, after over a year of back-end setup. FunctionFox didn't have the financial integration capabilities we needed, but we used it for years and were happy with the service and support. FunctionPoint brought together the 30,000-foot view of the projects and resources with a simplified process for getting day-to-day jobs into the queue, which was essential for our organization.

Return on Investment

Backlog

  • Software interns get easily used to this tool.
  • One who works in the SDLC gets recognized and it's easy to track rank board.

Function Point Productivity Software

  • We have a much more timely and accurate sense of our financials since switching to FunctionPoint
  • Our team is more efficient at tracking time, and we are much more able to track resources and profitability
  • Our accounting manager is able to use Quick Books in a much more efficient manner than previously
