Pros
They have had great customer service overall and are very quick to implement any updates that users suggest (which is excellent!). I have enjoyed partnering with this company.
Farmerswife is amazing for project management throughout the entire process of the project.
It is great to schedule and manage our resources and projects.
Cons
They have been using Farmers for many years prior to me joining. I was initially afraid to do anything on the server for fear that it would stop working.
I thought FW should be more open to making corrections and additions, even without the current customers having to pay for it. It should be a part of producing and maintaining software.
Farmerswife has a somewhat high barrier to entry from the user experience side. The UI and layout are unfamiliar to everyday users.

From a Technical Perspective

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have been an IT Engineer for our company for 5 years now. They have been using Farmers for many years prior to me joining. I was initially afraid to do anything on the server for fear that it would stop working! But, fear not! It has regular backups, both full and partial which is great for us technical guys. Just such a peasure to now know how it asll works, and to not have to worry about losing anything if it ever does crash out.

Pros

Farmers is just a dream from an IT perspective! From installing the Server, getting everything up and running to even doing simple Server upgrade or reinstalls. It takes minutes to do. Getting the users up and running is aven easier. Simple to maintain. Easy to administer. Just keeps running day by day! We also get a lot of power cuts this side of the world. Server crashes out, databases get corrupted... Copy...

Cons

The databases can tend to get very big which does starty to slow things down. But with regular maintence and archiving, things get back up to speed again.

I love this software

Reviewed 3 years ago

They have had great customer service overall and are very quick to implement any updates that users suggest (which is excellent!). I have enjoyed partnering with this company.

Pros

For us, it gave us everything that we needed to keep track of our clients projects. The small stuff doesn't fall through the cracks!

Cons

It can be tricky to navigate the reoccurring tasks. We found triggers also didn't trigger completed tasks... so that would be a nice future integration!

Vendor response

Hello Sherri! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! As for your comment about triggers we hear you and understand where you're coming from. We're always working to improve and really appreciate your all your feedback.

Mixed emotions

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It includes everything and is very potent.

Cons

I have to be honest and say that this program is not user friendly at all. Even our tech designer who is used to a technical language totally freaks out over the UX. I dont think I'm gonna get him back to use it. It looks and feels like a programmer constructed it for another programmer and it still looks and feels like it was made in the 90s. Going from invoice creator to a PDF. Not logical... It's super competent but not intuitive. Is this something that will be addressed in the near future? Everything from moving to adding to editing to change stuff later down the line in projects makes you go back from the beginning and redo. It's eating hours to be in this system.

Vendor response

Hello Mikael, thank you so much for taking the time to sharing your honest thoughts with us, we really appreciate it. Yes, it is true that the product is high in features after 22 years of dev but a little dated in some UI areas. We are working on our brand new www.cirkus.com platform which is developed both as a standalone product + a bolt on to farmerswife server. This will grow to provide a fresher interface to our our database. Contact us for more information!

A game changer for post production

Reviewed 3 years ago

Brilliant. Once I learnt the ropes, I wouldn’t look back.

Pros

Farmers wife has changed our way of working. As our facility grew, so did our way of booking jobs and resources. From a white board and physical tracking and ticking off, to a multicoloured booking system, it changed the game. The methods of summarising just how much work a project as taken, with all the little bits that usually go unnoticed, are unreal. Finally I can recharge productions a realistic fee and properly manage my team to be as efficient as possible.

Cons

The interface on farmers is its biggest Achilles heel. The interface is clunky and hard to get your head around. I would argue this software has a very steep learning curve. But once you ‘get it’ you’re golden.

Vendor response

Hello Neal! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We're delighted to hear that you enjoy using farmerswife and are having a great experience!

Farmers Wife for Freelancer Management

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The different functions of Farmers Wife make it a very valuable software to manage our big freelance pool, countless contacts and the company's own little team. Easy to see-through, adjustable and optimizable, with color-coding that helps quickly wrap your head around schedules.

Cons

There's way too many unnecessary options we never actually use, so needs a lot of clicks to create simple task / project. Also, alphabetic loading in timeline view would be a huge help, and there were quite a few ideas we asked the FW team to realize within the software that never got done. Would be also good to have an "undo" function.

Vendor response

Hi Anna, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We really appreciate all your feedback. It would be great if you could contact our support team support@farmerswife.com to arrange a session to talk through some of the ways of streamlining your day to day use. Thanks again!
