Function Point Productivity Software

Function Point is well suited for marketing, digital and advertising agencies, including small, medium and large. It has a lot of features that are useful and you can "grow into" some of the features that you may not use right away. It is probably more than is needed for a really small agency of less than 10 people.

Yes, definitely. We wanted a flexible but robust software and Sciforma seemed to be the best fit

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.

  • Flexible: I believe it is the best part. The software is completely and especially designed for our needs.
  • Easy to use: any configuration can be done either by us or Sciforma. At first, we would only use the project extension. After a year, we decided to add more users and roll-out time tracking. We did the configuration by ourselves and didn’t need Sciforma’s help. It was pretty easy, even without having a dedicated developer.
  • They have a lot of features: you can start as small as you want and always get more features . This was our case and we haven’t been limited so far.
  • They are methodology agnostic: We use both Agile and Waterfall and it’s great to see it all rolls up to the portfolio level.

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

  • Some bugs when the new version was released. But they were very quickly fixed, the Sciforma team is reactive and is always ready to help.

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.

We were looking at vendors but they didn't meet our expectations and weren't flexible enough.

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

  • It’s hard to evaluate our ROI. I can say though that:
  • More efficiency, we do not lose time looking for documents in different places anymore. Everything is gathered in one place.
  • Reports are amazing and quick to create.
  • As a project manager, I can better manage my project and my resources. It helps me a lot to prioritize what needs to be done and gives me the bigger picture.
