Function Point Productivity Software

FunctionPoint (FP) is great for agencies performing any type of task oriented work. If your workflow cannot be broken down into a set of outlined and easy to define tasks (even if the output of the task is abstract) then FunctionPoint would be difficult to implement. FunctionPoint is fantastic at defining scope in an engagement and forcing those who execute the work to stay within that scope if tasks are well-defined. If your work requires a lot of group collaboration and sharing of tasks, you may struggle with FunctionPoint's inability to share a single task simultaneously

Projector PSA

We think Projector PSA is a great tool to track and manage people in a professional service environment like management consulting. This system is easy to set up, easy to understand and should easily suit the needs of smaller and medium sized firms. It may be less appropriate for firms that rely very heavily on project management through another system (like MS Project) or firms that rely very heavily on a sales pipeline tracking system. While still very much possible to use, you would (I believe) have to do some re-keying between systems

Pros

  • Financial analysis and reporting is one of the tool's primary differentiators
  • Function Point has tremendous support and is very helpful when we have questions or issues
  • Time tracking and project management is also very solid
  • Estimating, statements of work and new project setup is very easy

  • Very easy to use, intuitive, efficient web portal for users to put in time and expenses. In our previous system, the UI was very painful to use - this one requires almost no training.
  • Very flexible configuration that allows use in a 'simple' way through to a 'complex' way. This is helpful for us to use it in a way that makes sense for our organization and to turn on specific features as we roll them out.
  • The reporting module (and the data model underneath) is very powerful. We have managed to create our own reports very easily, that have been very useful to us and met our objectives.

Cons

  • While it includes a CRM of sorts, the functionality is not what you would get from a stand alone CRM like Salesforce, or even Hubspot CRM
  • It would be nice if it had more out of the box integrations, specifically for marketing automation platforms
  • While it is easy to use, it requires a lot of training and there is definitely a learning curve

  • Release management process needs to be improved. Currently no facility is provided to test the impact of new releases in a sand-box. This introduces business risk if there are interfaces into Projector PSA as part of it's use in the business.

We have been using this tool for a year now and find our use of it continually evolves and broadens. We are also very excited about the overhaul that's under way and feel many of the improvements being put in place will help make us that much more effective and efficient. The Projector team is also very responsive and collaborative in terms of user feedback and improvement suggestions, which helps us know they will work hard to help us get what we need out of the tool.

Alternatives Considered

We previously used Workamajig and have found Function Point to be superior in every way. Function Point is mobile friendly, web-based, does not use flash and is much more intuitive than Workamajig. We are able to much more easily get the data we need from the system and our financial reporting has never been better.

Projector PSA is a great option for entering time. Our employees have no issue allocating their time to the correct tasks types. Projector PSA does not require a written description for time, and our employees have noticed that this makes for a cleaner, straightforward entry. Managers also have noted that they are easily able to pull clean reports.

Return on Investment

  • 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

  • Efficiency is definitely a benefit. While we do have to put in some effort into set up and maintenance of projects, we were able to eliminate the use of external timelines and WBS documents. Now we can grab them right out of Projector to send to the client, push into MS Project or just have our team access.
  • Resource allocation is more detailed and efficient and allows us to grow and be able to manage a larger group of resources with a wider range of skill-sets.
  • We are able to more accurately track and analyze internal R&D efforts and projects.
