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.

Nice Project Management and CRM

2019-11-19

Overall my experience has been pleasant and enjoyable and I plan on continuing to use.

Pros

The project management features are rich and allow proposals to be brought directly over and jobs created from them. User task tracking and time management features are deep.

Cons

I have enjoyed using the software and not much I dislike. As an online service there are times when outages have occurred at inopportune moments.

Function Point is giving us a better understanding of our company as a whole.

2016-09-08

From graphic design, to digital and award winning event marketing to publishing our own community magazine - all aspects of our company, from designers to account executives to our accountant were using separate systems.

Pros

Ability to track time simply, pull reports in multiple ways.

Cons

The accountant integration was a bit of a challenge.

Lots of pros, but also lots of cons

2018-08-13

But there is a steep learning curve, we've never been super happy with the billing integration for retainer clients, and the reporting is subpar.

Pros

The structure for setting up estimates and Jobs and Tasks works great when you're focusing on individual projects.

Cons

Most of the reports don't pull up in the browser, they are automatic downloads to an .XML file.

Great agency tool

2018-06-19

Tracking progress and budgets, great tool for streamlining processes.

Pros

As a user and not as an administrator, it's easy to log time, find tasks and ensure you are within the time budgeted to you.

Cons

The user interface/dashboard could use some upgrading.

A solid project management service, but lacks specific features

2017-12-06

Pros

As a legacy system for us, it works decently for creating estimates, invoices, etc., 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.

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

That way, I won't have to invest in another software to track employee time.

Function Point Creative Agency software: great help for workflow

2016-10-31

It has been a time saver for time tracking, estimating, invoicing, and workflow 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.

Lots of Features

2018-08-13

Overall it's nice to have once tool for many of our project tracking/accounting needs.

Pros

We mostly use for estimating, time tracking, invoicing and reporting. We don't use the brief or schedule features currently but would like to look at them again to see if they might be good for our team now that we've bene using FP for a few years.

Cons

I also feel like some workflows are clunky and I find myself going back and forth to different views to complete tasks, but make it work!

It can be frustrating but as a creative, I don't like keeping track of my time.

2018-03-15

Pros

I like the synchronization between the Task/To Dos list and the time entry. The Dashboard we have seems pretty straight forward.

Cons

The "Find a Project in the "projects drop down is pretty useless .

Great System for Creative Agencies

2016-09-14

With a ton of easy to use features and reporting, it's allowed our firm to estimate, create, track, and bill out thousands of past and ongoing projects.

Pros

Great value for a ton of functionality

Cons

The only issue that I have with the system relates to the tasking, as it's different then our agency workflow.

Good customer service but convoluted process

2018-07-20

Invoicing and time tracking

Pros

Constant added features and the ongoing ability to easily connect with customer service. Very helpful people who are willing to go the extra mile. Also feel like there is receptivity to change and hear our feedback.

Cons

It would also be useful to have a Gantt chart functionality to schedule tasks and allocate time based on tasks, and also forecast utilization over the coming weeks/months/year/etc

Can Be Challenging to Collaborate with Co-Workers

2019-11-22

I end up writing a lot of my tasks in a word doc instead because the visibility is easier than using the tool, and then go in after the fact and check off projects when I'm done.

Pros

I think that Function Point covers a wide breadth of project management tasks. I like that the timesheets are in the same place as projects, it makes it really easy to label tasks throughout the day.

Cons

So the collaboration aspect is challenging.

Great tool for the price

2017-09-07

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

Pros

Well designed interface that's easy to navigate and customize per user role.

Cons

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.

I mainly use Function Point for project information, time tracking and communicating w/ coworkers.

2018-03-15

Easy time tracking and comprehensive access to important project information/files.

Pros

I've used other, similar programs in the past, and FunctionPoint is by far the most comprehensive, while also being extremely easy to navigate.

Cons

I think the search functionality could stand to be a bit more user friendly. It usually takes me a few tries to find what I'm looking for if I don't have ALL the relevant information.

First project management tool for our internal agency. Has been a good experience!

2017-12-15

For the first time we have jobs in a central place with easy access to job history and time tracking allowing a tool for staff workload balancing.

Pros

Good time tracking tools, good customizable request and schedule templates that cut down on job entry when you do the same type of projects repeatedly.

Cons

No easy way to exclude features so as to not show a more complex UI than necessary.

Review

2018-09-10

Pros

- It's fairly intuitive - It does keep all information on a job together, in one place - The customizable dashboards based on how you will use it in your role - Timesheets are straight foward and easy to use (makes for easier tracking on a job) - Dashboards on where a project is sitting financially are nice

Cons

Incorporating a scheduling system similar to SmartSheet would be amazing - Tasks could also improve.
