With our agency growing, we were looking for a project management software that would allow our agency to manage internal tasks for clients, better estimate projects and track project spending/budgets, and to track and manage billable time.

  • Estimating Projects
  • Manage Tasks for Team Members
  • Track and Manage billable time
  • Some of the reports are hard to find or don't give you what you need
I think Function Point would be suitable for any organization of any size looking to get a better handle on their internal tasks to get a better idea of who is working on what. It is very effective and easy to use for project estimating and budgeting. I don't think it is a great program for lead management. We've been trying to use it for that but are having some issues.

  • 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.

  • 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.
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.
