10,000ft overview

What is 10,000ft?

10,000ft's high-level project and resource management software helps modern teams make confident decisions about project planning, team capacity, budget forecasting, team utilization, and hiring needs in real time. Over 1,000 of the most innovative companies in the world rely on 10,000ft — from 10-person shops, to 100-person teams within global brands, to 1,000+ person professional services firms. 10,000ft has been recognized for its design excellence with awards from FastCo, SXSW, IxDA + IDSA.

For team scheduling, their interactive schedule view allows users to see who is working on what, find people with availability, and address issues before they become problems. It features an intuitive interface that makes resource planning an easy and enjoyable process.

For project management and planning, every project has a project dashboard that shows the timeline, the team assigned to the project, and a high level status of how the project is performing. Users can track time, fees, and expenses for every project, and the status reports will update as the team fills out their timesheet.

For time tracking, assignments are sent to team member profile pages where the team can review the projects they are assigned to and record how long they worked on each one. Tracking time in 10,000ft is as simple as clicking confirm. If an employee worked more or less than what was planned, users can indicate that on the time sheet, and even add a note.

Lastly, the reports and analytics section is where users can analyze project profitability and future forecasting for projects and clients. Users can create custom reports by grouping and pivoting data across a number of filters to get different views of the company's past and future performance.

Exactly what we need - after trialling 10+ apps/services

Review Source: GetApp

We've been looking for project budget planning, time tracking and resource allocation planning tools for our agency. We tested 10+ different tools/services. For our needs we found 10K plans the best. It's almost a 100% percent match with our workflow. It's not an end-to-end tool but helps where we struggled the most: resource allocation and budget tracking. It comes through that it has been designed by people who did similar agency type work. The approach / concept is brilliant and most importantly kept simple yet flexible

Pros
Great fit for our processes: * Bidding/planning You can draft a project - it immediately reflected in resource allocation. Or change the resource allocation and it's reflected in the budget. It's immediately visible if your planned allocation is over the budget - so you can cut scope or ask for increased budget. You immediately see if you over allocated people: you can stagger projects or bring in more resources * Tracking The project analysis bars with incurred / forecasted vs. budgeted time & expenses are giving a fantastic one blink overview of a project's status. User experience is one of the best among the products we reviewed. It's especially important for time entry as all people hate to do it. Reporting is great, slice and dice as you wish and drill down even to individual time entry level

Cons
No project cost analytics - calculations/reporting are only based on billing rates. Although you might be able to use your costs instead of billing rates but then you lose some other abilities (eg. pricing) No out of the box integration to accounting systems (we use Xero). It would be great to reconcile expenses to or from Xero. They have an API but it requires custom development to integrate. Some minor usability improvements would help (eg. zooming in / out on resource planning, long project/phase names with people names and allocation info truncated in some zoom level, etc.). But overall still much better as most of the other tools. A bit pricey: USD 15/user/month

Resource Planning and Forecasting done right with 10000ft

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2019-03-21
Review Source: Capterra

The most challenging aspect of managing projects is reporting, especially the most critical assignments in the project which has actually been easier to accomplish with 10000ft. This is the first software I have used that combines project management, time tracking and resourcing altogether, diminishing the need to employ different software for these aspects of the business. We have been successful in realizing data-driven planning such as using the time inputs from all team members to produce real-time budget rather than counting on an estimate as was the norm before; forecasting resource utilization for the remaining part of the project, or even quarterly (and estimate liquidity etc.) and prepare a financial budget for this duration. Overall, I would recommend to medium-sized businesses to take their business to a better direction.

Pros
Setting up project details such as phases, resources, budget etc. does seem a hassle at first, but with the learning curve, it becomes substantially uncomplicated to use. It does take time for the team to get used to noting down the time spent on each project every day, but it is imperative that it is done correctly, so as to generate time and invoice reports that can assist the management to get high-level insights across the business. In addition, 10000ft offers periodic free webinars and case studies, e.g. "Getting More Out Of 10,000ft" which cover key aspects of the software and helpful hints on how to speed up workflow etc. It is also possible to sync our work calendars to assignments and tasks, which is actually quite impressive as we can see which projects are going on, and which assignments would need our urgent attention. The most important aspect for me as a Project Manager is that through this software I can track projects and make changes when required, schedule resources to particular tasks- both current and estimated, (through placeholder assignments), see which team member is over-booked and which one is available. It is also possible to review the actual time spent on assignments and tasks and is a powerful tool for invoicing purposes. This bit of transparency across the board is very functional particularly for the team, which can collaborate accordingly and be accountable for their bit.

Cons
There are currently no provisions for Gantt Charts and graphic representation of elements, which would have helped in better visualisation of data. Would love such an option in the future. Secondly, I feel that the real benefit of investing in such software will come in most handy when it is implemented by the team accurately, so it is essential that they do. It is also pricey for small businesses, wherein project based analytics are not included in the price.

Not overly happy with the product

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
It lets me see my team's schedule in a way that makes it easy to see where they are and what their availability is.

Cons
Due to the fact that I have used other similar software at other companies, there are a lot of things about this software I do not like. The import is very limited. They finally added bulk project edit but still doesn't allow you to edit the important fields like resource or placeholder. We have a lot of projects and resources so the system is extremely slow, sometimes unusable. The schedules should allow you to copy and paste a project or drag and drop when there are multiple people on the same project. It doesn't show a lot of information when you hover over the scheduled task. You can't set the working time for a 40 hour week because then it won't let you schedule anyone for the non-working day like Saturday and Sunday. I could go on and on.. I have to use this software because it is what my company decided to go with, but if it were up to me I would use another product.

This software has the worst customer support I've dealt with in a long time. They found a bug with my companies projects and it still hasn't been fixed over a week later.

Good control and visibility of resource scheduling for low effort

Pros
It is very well designed. It's fast. Like the name suggests it gives you a high level view of your business for very little effort. Interaction is intuitive - drag the schedule around and zoom in and out so it works at any scale from daily increments to annual. Over utilisation and availability in hours are clearly displayed. Whilst it feels light it does have some depth. Time recording, P&L, custom fields, API integration and pivot table style reporting are there if you want them. Project / stage hierarchy is very handy and tags and filtering are great.

Cons
Not much. Be nice if you could create a new project from the schedule view. It would be good if you could customise colours per project for the schedule view, but colours are reserved for commercial status - confirmed, unconfirmed, leave and non billable. It is a sensible design decision as it saves users from creating project "soup" in the schedule view, but some will want that freedom.
