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

TeamGantt

TeamGantt is well suited for project managers who want an easy way to visualize and keep track of schedules. It is easy to move things around once the schedule has been created, but dependencies are sometimes messed up because of this. I like how the bars change color when a task has been completed.

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.
  • Allows you to put a percentage complete in the chart to easily monitor progress.
  • Allows you to assign different people in order to keep things organized.
  • Allows you to view the schedule either in list view or Gantt view for variety.

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.
  • Adding milestones into the schedule is difficult.
  • Moving things around is difficult because of dependencies that you may have set up.
  • It is sometimes difficult to visualize the big picture because you have to scroll very far to the right in order to see the whole schedule.

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.
I like TeamGantt better than Project Gantt because it is easier to print which is super important. TeamGantt allows you to have many different users with the same account for free. My company does not pay for this resource so that was extremely important in making this decision. I like how TeamGantt allows you to have categories and then subcategories on the schedule.

Return on Investment

  • Efficient time tracking
  • Efficient SOW > Schedule > Job > Task creation process
  • Day to day task management - better understanding by every person what is necessary to do that day and organizational workflow
  • TeamGantt has helped our digital team stay on track which has led to more projects being completed.
  • It allows the project to be shared among colleagues.
  • It allows other people to sign onto the account and make recommendations.
