Pros

Function point is incredibly good at consolidating your billable hour tracking, creative briefs, projects and more. Additionally, it allows you to have multiple team members working on the same project at once.

Cons

The only thing that I have found frustrating with function point is how easily the timer clears (you win this one, toggl). If you accidentally close the tab you were tracking time in, say bye-bye to your accurate number. This is easily solved by popping out the timer, but sometimes you just forget.

Pros

The software is pretty intuitive and provides several great ways to view task allocation as well as costs vs. actuals. I've found this very convenient and useful when trying to monitor budgets and time going into the project.

Cons

While more intuitive than several softwares, FunctionPoint lacks efficiency in the amount of steps it takes to achieve one task. Something as simple as sending someone a task takes a longer time to set up on the front-end (via estimates, creating the job, etc) than to simply put in a task.

Saves time and allows for greater productivity.

Pros

The Customer Support is quick to respond, is very patient walking you through the steps.
The Company is always open to ideas and suggestions.

Cons

This is not so much about fp. as it is about the interface with QBO. After switching from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online, the User Interface was affected. Due to the limitations of QuickBooks Online, it affected the way we could use fp. and some of its' functions. One Example - QBO does not recognize Job #'s; fp. has figured out a work around, but it would be easier to be able to use Job's, as they are designed.

Pros

In the end, our project management team needs to know when things are due and what's on everyone's plate. Communication is essential to that, and Function Point makes these tasks very easy. From estimates to timesheets, it's just as good, if not better, than other project management software.

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.

We love how intuitive the software is and easy to use. The people at the company are great, too, and the training and support is phenomenal. 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. These people truly get what agencies need.

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.

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. Well designed interface that's easy to navigate and customize per user role. Customer service is great and responsive. Serves its purpose well.

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.

Pros

The estimate and budget system is great and has helped manage, track, and forecast financials.

The support we received from FP experts when we first started using it was excellent. They were always willing to hop on the phone to answer any questions or to help us troubleshoot. Customer service is amazing.

The multiple quick ways to search data and find your way in the software is a huge help. This software is very robust and helps everyone see whats going on

Cons

The project scheduling is a bit clunky and the collaboration tools are not as intuitive as desired. I also find the batch invoice process to be a bit buggy from time to time. I believe this has to do with the invoice numbering.

Being able to store all of our jobs (thousands) and searching for them easily. Everything is online and easily accessed from mobile and desktop. I like the app that helps me easily check my tasks and deadlines for the day.

Pros

I love that everything is customizable. The custom dashboards are probably my favorite. Having deadlines and colored time budgets are super helpful.

Cons

The breadcrumb navigation is dysfunctional and doesn't actually tell you where you are or how you got there. I wish there was an easier way to navigate between jobs, notes and tasks without having to go all the way back out and back in again.

I like the time tracking feature. I work at an advertising agency. Our team using this feature daily to clock our time throughout the day. From meetings to individual jobs, FunctionPoint gives us a way to track our REAL time, in turn, helping us make our business practices more efficient.

Cons

I wish the job jackets would have the option to print out with multiple deadlines. For example, a "proof out by" date, a "printed by" date and an "install" date.

Pros

The best part of FunctionPoint is the ability to work through a task list in order of priority and due dates. This allows for cross-functional teams to work together through large tasks, and work individually and efficiently through the smaller tasks.

Cons

FuntionPoint does not allow for a separation between the billable hour, and the hour billed to the client. For example, if a task requires putting off other work, then a "rush charge" may be billed to the client. However, other than inflating billable hours, it is difficult to account for this time in FunctionPoint without creating a manual process for the billing/AR team.

Individual task and time management.

Pros

Task management by individual person. Resourcing forecast based on date range. Ability to use it from anywhere.

Cons

The new scheduling list doesn't really work for our team, we prefer the old schedule template if we have to adjust entire schedules rather than having to adjust each individual task in the schedule. Some of our schedules have hundreds of tasks, so the adjust dates functionality in the old schedule is crucial for us.

Much happiness.

Pros

The connect to email feature is fabulous, as is the Campaign view especially for viewing financials across several jobs at once. Just being cloud-based is a huge plus too. Very customizable which has made our team's immersion great, support is fantastic and very fast. We all love it!

Cons

Sometimes the organization is a little irritating, ie if I click into a job's Notes from the icon on the Summary page (as opposed to the Notes "tab") I'm now in an overall Notes space and no longer under the umbrella of the job I started from. Even with the breadcrumbs, I find I have to do a fair amount of backward navigating to access info I'd already navigated to. If I click into a task, to get back to the main task list I have to navigate back to the job, then back to the Tasks tab/list. I know we can use the browser's Back button but that doesn't feel like true navigation and sometimes needs a refresh to update which is just another added step. Just seems funny to me that sometimes while navigating within a job, you are taken outside of it even if you are still just viewing its contents. Overall this is minor and we've gotten used to it, and I'm sure there are reasons why things are the way they are, but if I could change it I probably would. Only another thing I'd say is that more text formatting options would be huge, being able to set a text to even just one other color (red?) or highlight portions of text would make tasking things out even better.

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

Estimated hours versus actual and showing profitability. Integrating timesheets with project management. Integration with QuickBooks. Number of reports you can pull. Onboarding and setup was great and so nice that we had a dedicated person to answer all questions that pop up. I loved that we drove the screen during implementation- great training technique.

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.
