  • We did not use FunctionFox long enough to really see ROI, we struggled with getting team members to adopt the technology.
  • If it is used properly, I think you could find areas where you can automate processes or make a key hire to help optimize staff efficiency.
  • It can help with billing clients that you are being paid for spending time on.

  • FunctionFox has been our very first time tracking application for the business, so it's helped ensure we're billing out for all the time worked on our client's behalf. Or at least we are able to see how much time we consciously decide NOT to bill.
  • With greater visibility of our data, we're able to track employee efficiency. For instance, we are able to see the # of hours that are billable vs. non-billable per week, so everyone now sees their billable % stats with each paycheck.
  • The cost of FunctionFox is low, and you're not billed for archived users so it's been a great value for the money. It only helps us produce revenue, with exceptionally little cost. This product fulfills a much needed service in the arena of essential apps for small businesses.

  • FunctionFox pays for itself just about every month in terms of how much more I am able to bill than before I started using the software, and how much less time I need to spend on non-billable admin tasks. I used to create invoices based mostly on what sounded fair, rather than on accurate time & cost records. I'm sure my clients loved it, but it wasn't healthy for my business. Now I base invoices on actual time and expense records, and end up with more money in my pocket.
  • It's not tangible, but FunctionFox has improved my ability to communicate with clients, and with freelance partners when I'm involved in a collaborative project. I can anticipate and discuss potential budget or delivery deadline overruns before they occur. The goodwill this builds has had a tremendously positive impact on client and partnership relations.
  • I fell into freelancing without a lot of experience running a business. FunctionFox has been a great teacher, helping me think through many issues that I wouldn't have even recognized as important. It is simple to use, with a UI that is neither intimidating nor overwhelming, and it has been super flexible in terms of molding it to suit the way I work.
