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

TaskRay

TaskRay is a great solution for small to medium sized businesses running multiple projects at the same time. It is very cost effective and their development team is actively adding new functionality regularly. If you prefer working from a tiled Kanban board view, this is highly worth evaluating.

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

  • Kanban Board View for moving tasks from stage to stage. Easy to see where work is. Each team has visibility as to what is coming down the pipeline.
  • Great time keeping capabilities with its integration with Salesforce. Know exactly where your staff is spending their time with each project, across all the various tasks being worked.
  • Quickly identify Blockers with shading tasks. Staff would identify these blockers with a quick check mark inside the task details and Project Management would know to step in to assist. Great feature when working through Sprints.
  • Easy to schedule repeatable tasks for each day or week. If you have recurring Sprint Meetings, you can setup the task to recreate itself after it has been closed during its next scheduled interval.

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.

  • During my use, I would at times get responsive issues in regards to tasks opening, editing task details, or moving from stage to stage. This didn't occur for quite some time until we started loading the system with extensive projects and hundreds of tasks to each project. While unfortunate to run into these performance issues, many applications run into similar issues when working many simultaneous tickets at the same time.
  • Customization to the task layouts is a bit cumbersome.
  • If you are running a lot of stages, 8 - 12, moving tasks from one side of the board to the other can take a little bit of work. At the time there were no quick close capabilities on the tasks to redirect the task to its final stage.

It's hands-down the best PM tool we have ever used. Nothing compares in ease of use and being easy to learn. It also looks great and makes sense immediately

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.

TaskRay is a simple solution to install and get moving with. Project creation, stage setup, and task creation are just a few great features that are simple to set up. Remedyforce & Service Manager are a more enterprise type application for more service desk type environments. JIRA is a highly used and close favorite with project management. At the end of the day, simplicity for setup and configuration as well as day to day usability went hands down to TaskRay over JIRA.

  • It was highly effective in organizing projects and sprints.
