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

ProofHub

It suits well for those businesses who want to operate on a global level without investing too much over creating infrastructure. A business can easily reach out to various clients, customers, partners and other stakeholders and communicate and collaborate with them in a fast and transparent manner and can effectively tap any opportunities coming its way. Such opportunities if
properly implemented can lead to gains for the parties involved.

Pros

  • 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.
  • There is just one tool and everybody gets added in to it, without having to sync different tools together.

Cons

  • Project based billing - when a project is fixed bid, the only way for us to track this accurately in FP dollars is to bill the number of hours equal to the dollar amount which may inflate or under-represent the number of actual hours worked.
  • Kanban - FP lacks a Kanban board for moving tasks through a workflow in a visually meaningful way.
  • Shared tasks - sometimes two people need to work on the same task at the same time. FP makes this difficult because each task can only be owned by one person at a time, so it needs to be passed back and forth.
  • The only thing we would say is there should be an option to segregate files into proper folders. As without that, a person has to scroll through all files to find the relevant one. So, sub-folders for files would be an icing on the cake. Other, than that it has almost everything, and indeed even more than what is required to help users manage each task and projects efficiently.

Well, it would be a 9, as there is always room for improvement even in the bestest tools.

Alternatives Considered

We were drawn to FP for the ease of estimate to task to billing process. Previous solutions were very manual moving between each of these steps. Smartsheet was a glorified Excel document for tracking time that simply allowed multiple users to edit in a single place. Harvest was an upgrade with a time tracking start/stop clock. However, FP is the only solution we have found that covers the majority of our needs in one solution. Others come close, but FunctionPoint makes it so easy from estimate to task to billing to reporting that it is difficult to find another solution worth switching to for the places that it lacks.
We used Basecamp in the past, but we did encounter some problems while working with it. But these concerns have been better addressed in ProofHub. It has a simple interface which is so easy to operate and this was not the case in Basecamp. ProofHub lets us quickly chat with our team members over various work matters through its inbuilt chat feature and resolve them fast while Basecamp provides this feature through a third-party tool which added to our expenses and it was not a very convenient affair. ProofHub has got an inbuilt proofing tool which allows us to get quality feedback over designs instantly saving our time and costs, whereas Basecamp enables proofing through a third party tool which again was not convenient for us. ProofHub’s casper mode feature helps us to protect privacy and secrecy over confidential issues but Basecamp lacks such an important feature. So ProofHub has more to offer and better too in comparison to Basecamp. (answer to Describe how ProofHub stacks up against them and why you selected ProofHub.

Return on Investment

  • Efficient time tracking

  • Day to day task management - better understanding by every person what is necessary to do that day and organizational workflow
  • Proofhub has a great impact on our ROI. Due to a systematic approach of handling each clients’ project, we have been able to double the number of clients we had prior to signing up for Proofhub.
