Pros

That it integrates time tracking, project management, and billing.

Cons

Creative collaboration is difficult. There is no running stream of communication that would easily allow someone to understand where the project started and how it has progressed. There are too many ways and places where files or information can be stored which creates a lot of challenges with communication and consistency.

Successful, intuitive, helpful

2018-02-15

Efficient time tracking, understanding where I'm spending my time, where we are inefficient and how to be better for the next project

Pros

Efficient time tracking system and project management tool, also really great for pulling reports and understanding workload

Cons

Anytime you're going from no structure to full structure, there's a bit of a learning curve. But since everything has been up and running, the team has had little complaints.

Pros and Cons, but Very Powerful

2017-09-12

Pros

In the end, our project management team needs to know when things are due and what's on everyone's plate.

Cons

The price is a bit high compared to other options, and it requires quite a bit of ramp-up time. In the end, this is not ideal for small teams, as they can be far more agile and don't need something like this to weigh them down.

I use it as an employee for a creative agency to track hours of client work

2018-05-11

Pros

Easy to plug in hours with notes. Love that it is real time with no need of saving the application after a new entry has been submitted.

Cons

Would like a better display of project management dashboard

Great tool for the price

2017-09-07

Great value. It's not the most robust tool that I've used, but it gets what we need done.

Pros

This software adequately serves its function as our project management and billing tool.

Cons

My biggest issue with the software to date has been the ability to customize toward our needs. i.e. more flexibility to run reports applicable to our business needs. That being said, its works great for what we pay. Another thing I'd like to see added to the functionality is an app that would allow our users to assign tasks via iPhone/Android.

Function Point is a great productivity tool that offers all the features that we were looking for.

2017-12-06

Pros

The user interface is great and so easy that our creatives actually use it to track their time, while offering needed information for account services and project management AND it also back ends into Quickbooks to make AP and AR easier.

Cons

It would be great if the software had a more robust time tracking capability so that I can see more easily at a glance PTO, overtime, etc. That way, I won't have to invest in another software to track employee time.

A solid project management service, but lacks specific features

2017-12-06

Pros

., project management, etc.

Cons

It lacks certain features like mass movement of multiple tasks or projects, the schedule feature leaves a lot to be desired, no integration with quickbooks, and reporting could be more robust.

Excellent for combining finance into our project management- our business goal

2017-06-02

Profitability reports, fewer number of tools needed (all combined into one). Chance for the full team to see what the estimated hours were versus what they spent so that they can be more accountable for sticking to the estimated hours on work orders. The ability to see what jobs we run over hours on so that we can raise the price or become more efficient in some way.

Pros

Integrating timesheets with project management.

Cons

Can be slow because it is cloud based- maybe a designated browser would help. Can be overwhelming with all the things you can accomplish- maybe the deployment team can help with a starting point and then what is good to add on over time as users become more comfortable. Training the staff is hard because there is no full handbook or complete user guide to give to the staff. It required a lot of my time as the Admin to understand the product so that I could setup and create training for the staff.

We love this software!

2017-09-08

Pros

Couldn't recommend it enough...especially after having use a number of advertising software competitors that seem to market towards the accounting folks and have no CLUE how the rest of the agency really uses a project management tool.

Cons

I wish that they had a media buying aspect to their software. Also the notifications are a bit complex and we get too many emails. But it's a small price to pay for all the other awesomeness of the software.

I utilize FunctionPoint to manage my time, project estimates and jobs and assign tasks to my team.

2017-12-06

Pros

I like that that job/client/financial/task/timesheet information is all in one central location. There is a lot of crossover in information, and it is nice to have a centralized location.

Cons

I do not like how non-user friendly the project management portion of the system is.

It's a great tool for project management. It's multi-layer functionality really makes it easy to use

2018-02-02

Pros

It has a lot of ability to customize. I love that you can change your homepage to display different components of the software to fit what you're looking for. Not only that but you can also customize the reports that you can pull. This makes it easy to evaluate projects after their completion and determine profitability. Overall the software is pretty user-friendly.

Cons

This would be a huge help in our agency for project management.

The perfect marriage of software services to run a full-service digital agency!

2015-12-10

We are a full-service digital agency and we wanted a solution that was a marriage between CRM, resource management, project management, time tracking, proposals/briefs, reporting and invoicing. fp. was the answer. fp. has helped us to manage a complex set of rate cards, service codes, and types of resources, which has helped save us hundreds of hours of wading through multiple spreadsheets to manage the same kind of thing in MS Excel.

Function Point Creative Agency software: great help for workflow

2016-10-31

Being a creative shop, some employees long for something more visual like Trello for project management.

Pros

Time tracking, Job Management from Estimate to Invoicing.

Cons

Lack of visual interest (i.e. would be great to look for like Trello cards /boards at a glance to see all project status at once) - also would be nice to have a thumbnail of the project (i.e. of the ad, brochure, etc.) next to the job name on all dashboards.
