Pros: The interface is very easy to use and I like the ability to set-up our accounts, projects, and teams. I especially like the reporting functionality and how easy it makes it for me to forecast staffing needs and revenue while reporting on how as a team we are doing in comparison to what we forecast.

Cons: I'd like to be able to assign a custom color to each of my Accounts so that I can better visually see assignments based on that. Other than that, the tool is awesome!

Overall: Ease of reporting and visibility into what my team is working on

Overpriced, needs to hire a UX person, misses the point

Pros: Capacity resource management is super helpful. The end product & level of analytics that 10k can achieve is very helpful.

Cons: The work needed to make the system useful took 1 person's time over 1 full month to onboard 10 people.

The pricing structure are in lots of 10 people.

This is the single worst UX application I've ever been swindled into paying for.

The time tracking uses decimals instead of time 1.5 is 1 hour & 30 minutes...

It was just a bad experience.

We switched to Harvest + Forecast. WAY better.

Hi Tom, Thank you for the honest and direct review. It sounds like 10,000ft wasn¿t a great fit for the way your team works. As every company has its own nuances, we know that our solution won't be perfect for all teams. Often, the first few months serve as a pilot for evaluation to understand if and how our software might help support your process. We¿re always working on improving the software and balancing the desire from some customers to add more complexity and the desire from others to simplify. We know it can be a daunting task to find the right software for your needs, so we appreciate you taking the time to evaluate 10,000ft and we¿re glad to hear that you¿ve found another good solution for the size of your team and needed functionality that this time. Best of luck, The 10,000ft Team

Quick and easy way to schedule resources.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: Good control and visibility of resource scheduling for low effort

Elevated our internal resource allocation, saving us hours each week

Comments: 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.

Comments: Very easy software to use. I make use of it from a back office perspective when on-boarding/off-boarding staff and also to reconcile invoices. Setting people up in the system and showing them how to use it really is very simple indeed - good, simple user interface. The scheduling feature is incredibly useful to get a picture of staff absence and engagement on projects for a period of time.

Customer Support are great - so responsive and keep jargon to a minimum, a pleasure to deal with.

Exactly what we need - after trialling 10+ apps/services

Comments: 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

Pros: Great fit for our processes: * Bidding/planning 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 * Tracking 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

Cons: 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

Comments: We recently switched our time tracking software with 10,000 Feet simply because it was able to replace numerous independent applications used internally to manage payroll and project budgets. 10,000 Feet provides a true bird's eye view of the enterprise allowing us to properly manage our project resources effectively. 10,000 Feet lets us view complete schedules, and allocate the necessary resources to the corresponding projects, pre-filing fields so that employees do not report time against incorrect projects inadvertently. It also provides real-time metrics to compare how you are billing against your projects: are you over or under budget. All this is effectively done with little or no effort. As a Scrum Master, 10,000 Feet has made my job of resource allocation and tracking extremely easy.

Pros: 10,000 Feet provides individual, project and enterprise view of resources, projects, time and budgets. Expenses are also managed and its reporting and filtering capabilities are extremely helpful. It has a high level of flexibility to keep accuracy with your project budgets.

Cons: I would not say there is a con, only that it was so jammed packed with features that it took a little time to get used to it from what I was used to working with.

Easy to set up, Great analytics...

5/5
Overall

Comments: We have been looking for a while for a tool that allows us to grow with us and to plan projects properly. With 10.000ft we are able to plan resources and track time at the same time. Time tracking only looks backwards, but 10.000ft also looks forward. You know roughly about the costs that will occur on a project. Finally we have costs and time fully under control to keep our profitability at a healthy level. You see early enough, if things run out of scope. It also is a great help in planning resources. Finally team members can see by themselves on what projects they will work in the future.

Pros: Easy to set up, Great analytics, lovely design, easy to use, easy for time tracker to add their hours with just 1-2 clicks, good documentation

Cons: nothing found yet - a roadmap of future features would be nice

Best planning tool yet

Comments: I don't often do this but... I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your software. I have reviewed upwards of 40 project and resource planning tools and cannot get over how close 10000ft is to my ideal tool. Thank you, and I look forward to seeing new features.

Pros: Very easy to update a person's schedule Intuitive way to manage allocation including variable allocation to a project over time Most usable software I've had the pleasure to use

Cons: No Project schedule view (yet - it is coming) No API (also coming)

Comments: your website makes it looks like something exciting, modern etc but very hard to get a grasp of what your software really does even after reading quite a bit, website could use wording that will make it clearer at first glance

Pros: otherwise looks great, creative graphics, modern look

Hi Katy, Thank you for checking out 10,000ft and your feedback about the website. We are working on a new website that will improve the way we communicate 10,000ft. We are also creating new content that explains the features and benefits of our product in the simplest possible way. It would be great if you would join us as an early tester of the new website and give us your thoughts. Would you like to help us? Hope to hear back from you! 10,000ft team
