10 000ft Plans est un logiciel de collaboration simple qui améliore la façon dont les utilisateurs allouent les ressources, planifie les portefeuilles de projets et découvre des informations commerciales pertinentes.
L'affichage interactif du calendrier permet aux utilisateurs de voir qui travaille sur quoi, de trouver des personnes avec de la disponibilité et de résoudre les difficultés avant qu'elles ne deviennent des problèmes. Il dispose d'une interface intuitive qui transforme la planification des ressources en un processus facile et agréable.
Les tâches sont envoyées vers les pages de profil des membres de l'équipe où ils peuvent examiner les projets qui leur sont affectés et enregistrer le temps passé sur chaque projet. Le suivi du temps dans le logiciel 10,000ft Plans est aussi simple que de cliquer sur Confirmer. Si un collaborateur a travaillé plus ou moins longtemps que prévu, les utilisateurs peuvent l'indiquer sur la feuille de temps et même ajouter une note.
Chaque projet dispose d'un tableau de bord de projet qui indique le calendrier, l'équipe affectée au projet et un statut de haut niveau sur l'évolution du projet. Les utilisateurs ont la possibilité de suivre le temps passé, les frais et dépenses pour chaque projet. Les rapports d'état sont mis à jour lorsque l'équipe remplit sa feuille de temps.
La section des rapports et des analyses de données permet aux utilisateurs d'analyser la rentabilité du projet et les prévisions ultérieures concernant les projets et les clients. Les utilisateurs ont la possibilité de créer des rapports personnalisés en regroupant et en faisant tourner les données autour d'un certain nombre de filtres afin d'obtenir des points de vue différents sur les performances antérieures et futures de l'entreprise.
10,000ft Plans se concentre sur les informations de haute importance à propos des équipes et des projets, afin de fournir aux entreprises une vue d'ensemble de leur activité.
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.
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.
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.
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
Great fit for our processes:
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
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
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
Thanks for the great review, Peter!
Good control and visibility of resource scheduling for low effort
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.
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.
10,000ft Plans was our choice after a vetting process of several weeks and over a dozen different products. We needed something to improve our internal resource allocation capabilities to prevent over- or underbooking while also providing task management and schedule management both at an individual and company-wide level. When the 10,000ft team presented us with their "Schedule" view, we literally "ooh"ed and "aah"ed. It remains the most exciting feature about Plans for us, in addition to the reports and analytics we're able to run on our team's utilization, project budgets, and more.
The 10,000ft team is very receptive to feedback on their product (in fact, they often reach out to gather our feedback rather than waiting for us to provide it, which I feel is a sign of a great company), and we have had several suggestions for them that could improve our experience with the tool. Their response is always to be curious to understand the request and to thoroughly consider whether it's a change that makes sense for the tool as a whole. It's also happened more than once that we've mentioned a suggested feature they are already working on for the next update!
What we'd still love to see from 10,000ft is a more robust task communication system ("comments" on tasks aren't given enough weight in the interface for us to provide full communication among team members about what needs to happen on any given task, leading us to double-up in chat or email with full details), as well as some additional categorization on analytics. For example, there isn't currently a way to isolate only projects that are over budget or within a certain percentage of maxing out budget; instead we have to scroll the project list to find them, and then analyze one-by-one. There are a ton of other ways to categorize projects that are very useful, though.
It bears repeating that this is a company that is eager to learn from its customers. None of our input is cast aside even if it's not the right fit for the product overall, and that means a lot as a customer who depends on this tool. If you aren't getting enough insight into resource allocation, and if you want more insight into your project budgets and employee utilization, Plans is a solid option that has improved our workflow.
Simple but powerful. The design is clever - we looked at many other options in the market and 10kft is a standout on great design. The design allows to to have deep insight and visibility into resource management in your company. Love the ability to forecast revenue.
The extra features of the Pro version do not justify the cost. The expense function is weak. We had to build a manual interface to our accounting software (QBO) - would have liked this off the shelf.
Thanks for the thoughtful review, Raj! We love working with your team.
