Pros: We have been using Streamtime for a number of years and the cloud-based platform is a vast improvement on previous iterations. It is very straightforward to log in and check the status on individual projects. You can easily add a new stage to a job, revise a quote, then send it off to the client for approval. One thing I really like about that process is having the client `approve a quote by clicking the button (although many of them don't seem to bother!).

Support is good, always get a good response from the development team service is a key differentiator for me.

Cons: Generally speaking the system is quite intuitive, but there are some elements of the interface that are not immediately clear the USED / PLANNED figures in the budget section of a quote, for example. That doesn't make sense to me, I think the total should include also include expenses, that would give us a running total that tell you when you've overspent.

I haven't managed to output any useful reports as yet, but that might be because I haven't spent much time looking at that area. On the old Filemaker system I used to output reports that would give you a good indication of job performance.

There are some nuances that give rise to frustration now and again. There are instances when you think, it would be really useful if I could add a new contact at this point (rather than come out of the job and return to the Contacts area) does that make sense

Overall: Helps us to keep track of project progress and manage a job from quote through to invoice.

Pros: (1) Simplicity. Easy to pick up and a minimal/clean interface that responds quickly on the mouse and trackpad. Whip those cards into the Done pile as quickly as you can.

(2) Quickness from job > job plan > quote // or from job plan > invoice // or a quick task added straight in the ToDo list for all of those 'urgent' jobs clients ask for. The pipeline from creating a job to completion and every interaction in between has been designed with real purpose.

(3) Analytics: A rich engine to break down your time, costs, progress etc. Huge amounts in the pipeline too, watch this space.

(4) Great for a freelancer, even better for teams. An excellent team schedule feature allows managers to easily manage WIP across a whole team.

(5) Plenty more I can't think of off the top of my head.

... Last but not least - Customer service. It's second-to-none across any industry i've worked with or for! Period.

Cons: (1) Still suffers a little bit only at this point in time because it is so new. One or two invoicing features haven't arrived yet but are in the short-term pipeline. You can get around these whilst in Xero for the moment though.

Once these bad boys come in... i'll come back here and bump two of the categories up from 4 stars to 5 stars along with the other three categories to give it a perfect score... it's that good... And i've used many good systems over the past decade.

It's worth jumping on board now to experience the software as it's certainly made dealing with our WIP much easier.

Overall: From the moment you check out their website, see their innovative approach and understand the direction they're taking their software in, a wave of anticipation will most likely wash over you. Especially if you're looking for a user-friendly project management app with design and user experience at its core and a company behind it who practice true customer-centricity.

I say that because not only are they prepared to offer long-term value over short-term gains, I've never met a more hands-on team of people focusing on creating a product that aligns with their vision and also takes into account every last piece of user feedback. There is a genuine excitement about their product internally and that's reflected in their culture and service.

Streamtime doesn't compete on volume of features' it falls way short of many out there and for good reason' they don't want to. Streamtime focuses only on the things that make project management simple and nothing else. Starting with the dreaded timesheet' gone are timesheets and timers. Streamtime lets you set up a simple ToDo list of cards (which house your jobs and tasks) and allows you to set and modify the time by simply resizing the card. Drag the card from the ToDo pile to the Done pile and that's it! You're making money. It really couldn't be simpler.

Streamtime allows you to do many of the core functions that teams and individuals require without all of the redundant features that most people never use. Quoting, invoicing, integration with the world's best accounting system (Xero) are all well-thought-out additions. Granted, there is still work to be done on the options and functions for invoicing pre-Xero, but all of the must-haves are in the pipeline as we speak. Although the app and it's unique functionality are in its infancy, these guys literally don't stop improving every week.

If a simpler, easier way to capture all of those bits of time that fall through the cracks isn't enough, then Streamtime's plans for future data interpretation providing real studio insights on staff and project compatibility is just out of this world.

Streamtime is a forward-thinking software company with the balls to chuck the original playbook out of the window and start again from scratch. They had the foresight to work with an award-winning team of design-thinkers who challenge the status quo, and the guts to accept an exciting new direction and build something truly unique for creative agency professionals.

Pros: Comes from designers. It's simple and easy to use. Can get to it anywhere with an internet connection. The user experience is just right for the industry and the tasks I have to carry out. The team regularly ask for feedback and they listen to it. They then action and adapt the software progressively and are alway improving it. There is always training available and support which is prompt and efficient.

Cons: Originally I didn't like how large the header font was on the jobs and quotes etc. However it actually made me think more simplistically about naming conventions of jobs anyway. Plus they have listened to feedback and changed that now so you have options. Being with the system from the start and having been a long term user of the old Filemaker based system I know the company are simply trying to get it right so they do listen and tweak all the time.

Overall: I really like them as a company. The ethos, the values and the friendly nature of the team. Professionals that enjoy getting the job done.

I use Streamtime for my small one man design studio to plan, manage and invoice all my projects.

Pros: Although you can work with complete teams in Streamtime, I use it for my little one man design studio. An I strongly benefit of it. Streamtime is very easy in use, both on desktop as on my mobile/tablet. In combination with the very simple/affective app it's very easy to manage and registrate my daily work. It really helps me to organise my jobs and daily planning. More important even is the fact that Streamtime makes me aware of the hours I spend on jobs and the urge to invoice them.

All it takes is the dicipline of making a good start for a project. Which is very easy and intuitive in Streamtime. Once you've set up a project, small or complex, the rest is easy.

I can't really say something about working with Streamtime in a team because I work on my own but I'm sure it rocks especially there!

The support is very personal and effective.

Overall: An easy project planning and time registration. This gives me a realy good insight in my way of working.

Pros: I like the ajax interface and the simple UX design feeling

Constantly updated with new features

Behaves nimble even with loads of data

Lot's of drag and drop and nice intuitive features

Cons: Hard to think of anything to be honest. Maybe the time it took to adjust coming from a previous platform with a conventional structure. As things just work differently in Streamtime (in a positive sense) it takes some time to adjust to get the jist for it.

Overall: Exponential learning curve from day 1 with high satisfaction on-coming. Support and help is also fantastic and responsive. As a front-end designer and developer I use the 'to do' section the most and it is definitely one of my favourites. Scheduling the tasks for the day or ahead for the week is a breeze - it's also great to be able to see in a few clicks what your team mates have planned for the week/day.

Pros: We like the overall simplicity and no-nonsense approach. Previously we tried many other alternatives including the big names such as workflow max. All of these platforms, while powerful, are incredibly bloated and a real pain to get anything done quickly.

Streamtime customer support and attention to improving the platform are second-to-none.

Cons: Nothing really, You could always want some extra features in particular situations - but that is always the case and often leads to Bloatware so we're pretty happy with it as it. Perhaps a really large agency would need more bells and whistles, but we're super happy.

Overall: Streamtime is an agency job management toll that anyone that can pick up and start using immediately. We wanted to spend less time 'managing the management system' and simply get on with it.

Streamtime has a nice and simple interface which is pleasant to use, and the constant improvements are a bonus.

Pros: Simplicity of user setup is fantastic. And even though the support is not really needed, the support team goes out of their way to ensure your questions are answered in relation to your organisation. This is a subtle but important point.

The ongoing additions to the original release are not adding clutter as in many iterative software releases, but adding value. The recent release of the analytics console was brilliant.

Cons: It cannot read my mind. I would like the developers to put some energy into a direct interface with my brain.

Overall: We have been avid Streamtime classic users for many years. The opportunity arose to try the new version so we jumped at the chance. For a light fast moving group who need organising, but not managing and information but not inputs, Streamtime fits the bill.

Inducting people into using it is very easy.

We started testing with a small sub set of our business to see if the new version of streamtime would work for not only the sub part but the larger main organisation.

Recommendations to other buyers: The new version of Streamtime is not for an organisation that wants a direct replacement for timekeeping and job logging. Streamtime Classic does that far better. However, for an organisation that wants to make a shift in the way they empower their staff and create trust and information awareness the new Streamtime delivers that. Final word (in my opinion) Streamtime is for an organisation that wants the tools to help their people grow through being able to concentrate on the work, not the system.

Pros: I find streamtime very user friendly and super fast to pick up for any firm. I have recommended it to my girlfirends design firm to use as their current way of tracking time is very inefficient.

Cons: I wish streamtime had a way at the bottom to see the total time of work I put in per day after I have already logged it. It works great when it is unlogged and I can look in the right corner in the to do number but once I log it, there is no way of me knowing unless I add up my time on my own. I like the weekly total breakdown on the write but I wish there was a daily number under each day!

Overall: Great software and best/easy way to track time and expenses that I have came across so far in my career!

Pros: Streamtime is great. It looks good and it does what it's meant to do.

What sets it apart from others is the prompt, valuable and reliable after sales service.

Every single time I've had a problem - usually my lack of knowledge - the guys online have been quick to respond and solve the issue. In an industry where time=money, that service is worth millions.

Cons: I don't want the company name on the invoices by default. In my case, it's repetitive. My company name is in the logo above, then printed below. Looks a bit odd.

Pros: Running a design team means that we need to be really good at planning, tracking and reporting on projects. I was looking for something really good at doing this and spent a good few months and lots of free trials on other software.

From the start, Streamtime felt like a great fit for our business. A well structured and elegantly simple layout made it easy to get started. As we started to use it we then discovered that there were lots of additional features that made it possible to do all of things that happen when projects change. Its obvious that there has been alot of thinking behind Streamtime that makes it very useable with real world projects. On top of this there is a sense of fun and good humour in the software that helps make it enjoyable when you are using everyday.

Cons: I don't have a long list of things that I like the least about the software. I would like to see more integrations.

Overall: Easy to use and follow

Bottom line, switching to Streamtime has made us money.

Pros: It's improved our working practises. Putting all our planning and measuring tools in one easy/fun to use interface has improved our efficiency and accuracy no end. We now quote more accurately and quickly. This then seamlessly turns into the planning of the job. Then that plan becomes a to do list for our designers, replacing our previously inaccurate live timesheet. All and every detail of a job's time and cost can then be analysed and improved for next time. What more could you want. Firing the quote straight up to Xero to invoice would be perfect. Well it does that too.

Cons: Sometime page loads are a little laggy.

Schedule page is new and still has a little way to go before it is truly intuitive

Overall: It's made us work more efficiently. It's allowed to plan projects better. It has improved our profitability on jobs.

Vendor Response

Pros: It's very flexible, allowing us to use it in different ways for different clients. The drag and drop task manager is very helpful, and it's easy to record time spent on different projects. The support team is awesome, and they continue to listen to feedback and release updates in a timely manner. Their communication with their users is spot on with how they communicate and how often they communicate.

Cons: It's sometimes difficult to remember how to do the more advanced tasks that aren't part of the daily routine. The "jobs" page tends to take awhile to load when you have a lot of jobs stored in the system, but this has been improved somewhat in the past 6 months.

Overall: It streamlines project management, makes recording time easy, and shows at a glance how much time the entire team has contributed towards a project.

Pros: Scheduling tasks on per day basis is very helpful, but also having the ability to schedule longer task across days/weeks. StreamTime also has a very powerful budget reporting so we're able to check how a project is going to budget and make decisions accordingly.

Cons: The only con is the amount of detail you can add per task and in saying that we now prefer not to keep too much information per task in StreamTime such as developer briefs, screenshots, files etc.

Overall: Now that I'm familiar with the functionality and features it's very easy to jump in and jump out when I need, the user interface did take sometime to get used to; it's not a carbon copy of other systems and works very well for what we need.

The support and feedback process is very good, new features and requests for feedback and great and you can see StreamTime progress.

Pros: Easy of use has to be the foremost, love the planning as it's quick and easy for both management and staff.

Cons: I think the only things that we currently need is:

1. Forecasting within the StreamTime,

2. Billing in different currencies,

3. True Purchase Orders; and

4. It would be great if we could add different qty's into an expense, so one item could have Qty of 100, 200, 300 etc. Also I would love to be able to add lines to a quote, so an expense could have the unit price on one line, delivery on another and setup on another (for example).

5. Also the possibility to duplicate items or expenses as well as being able to delete them. Would make quoting much easier

Overall: It's allowed us to update our very old system into a user-friendly online tool that all of our staff can use.

Pros: After comparing half a dozen different business management apps, Streamtime stood out as the most intuitive and well-thought out. I love the direct relationship between scheduling and timesheets, a unique element that sets it apart. It has the perfect balance between detail and looseness that makes it easy to record information and extract useful reporting. The reporting filters have recently been vastly improved, making analysis a breeze. Though the new scheduling interface will improve it greatly, it's already a very easy-to-use resource scheduling tool.

Cons: The big drawback is that Streamtime is best suited to time and materials project planning, which as an architecture studio we don't use. I'd love to see better tools for long format fixed fee projects. The interface is just so good though that we've found workarounds to make this work for us for the time being!

Overall: Streamtime has helped us manage our goals-oriented project planning really effectively. It's also made project budgets super transparent, which has allowed our team to get involved with the profitability of our business. Reporting for payroll and time management are very helpful too.

Pros: It's extremely easy to set-up jobs and allocate time. It's just as easy to view who is working on what and amend workload based on sickness, holidays or shifts in deadlines. I can easily set-up projects months in advance and book time in for all areas of the business. It's made us far more efficient and productive as a team too. It's pretty faultless.

Cons: It can be a little buggy at times. Slow loading and having to refresh to ensure things have updated. Although, I'm putting that down to our network connection rather than faults anywhere else.

Overall: I'm a Design Studio Manager working client side. I've a team of 5 designers who work with all areas of the business to produce adverts and comms. We invested in StreamTime after a friend of mine suggested we look into it. In short, it's simply brilliant. Extremely easy to use, my designers and I can manage our time and projects, collaborate seamlessly across jobs and, more recently, run analytics to show which areas of the business impact us most in terms of time and amends. StreamTime is a weapon any creative should have in their arsenal.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're a freelancer, or you run a small team of creatives / designers - BUY THIS. It's an indispensable piece of kit.

Pros: We love the To Do list, makes time sheets a breeze.

Moving through the different functionalities (project planning, quoting, invoicing, reconciling, timesheet reports) is simple - and beautiful!.

Cons: If you need to work on complex quotes for series of similar projects, ST is not your best bet.

Streamtime is a fabulous source of data, but I still rely on spreadsheets for accurate reporting.

Pros: The Streamtime team seem very receptive to comments on improvement or issues I may have had. I am always incredibly impressed by their personal response.

This program is so simple to use it thankfully avoids the lengthy customisation time often required of other similar products on the market.

Cons: The lack of timer originally seemed quite a frustrating element. After using this feature for a period of time I feel it has improved my way of working.

Overall: The ease of use, functionality and beautiful design of this product ensures there is no reasonable excuse for being disorganised when it comes to workflow.

Streamtime makes job and time management a simple task to enable my studio to spend their valuable time in design rather than administration. The weekly view feature allows for realistic targets for jobs to be maintained rather than the 'wishful thinking' format of my working past. The ease of seeing all team members schedules enables job distribution and tracking streamlines the approach to office time management.

Streamtime has re-introduced me to a better way of working blocks of time rather than small snippets which are ultimately time wasting. I feel more in control of my time and therefore job schedules.

I look forward to a long term relationship with Streamtime and the program developments that will come with time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Regardless of whether you are a sole operator or larger studio I believe the flexibility and ease of use of Streamtime will positively contribute to your business operation.

Pros: Fits with the way a modern agency works and the Streamtime team have really listened and studied an agencies workflow. Streamtime is simple to use and is really helping us manage our costs and time without it getting in the way. The software has been embraced by project managers and designers and is a seamless resource for ensuring everyone knows what they have to get done. Quotes and invoicing are logically structured, well designed and can be emailed directly to clients for approval.

We've been using Streamtime for the past 6 months, & it is THE best studio management tool out there

Pros: The ability to be able to plan projects, see costs and hours, assign to team members, track hours and invoice makes it perfect for our studio. The combination of being able to schedule teams hours, easily see availability and manage your own time in a seamless and visually engaging way is awesome. When I say engaging, I mean it's beautifully designed for a great experience in a task that's usually boring and painful.

Cons: There is very little to not like about Streamtime. The only small problem is not being able to have non-billable hours that don't have a dollar value assigned to it. But seriously, not enough to make us break a sweat

Overall: Better studio management. More effective use of planned budgets. More efficiency in admin and invoicing. Seamless integration into our own internal studio process. Best of all its a great user experience and looks great too.

If you are a creative agency, you need Streamtime in your life!

Pros: Streamtime is so easy to use and most importantly looks amazing! I use the software for implementing all our jobs across the studio schedule which also helps my team plan and manage their own time and job schedule.

The regular updates by the Streamtime team also prove to me that they really care about this product and listen to all feedback they gain from the users. The updates just keep making this product better and better and we have seen a massive evolution even within 12 months of using! Thank you Streamtime!

Overall: Streamtime allows users & teams to be more organised throughout the studio. It appeals to all areas of the business including Management, Admin and Designers which makes it unique and so beneficial to the creative industry.

Pros: Simple, Clean, Easy to use, Great support

Cons: Nothing really but I guess limited features as it is new and still being developed.

Overall: I started using Streamtime after searching and trialling many other products. After finding this one and watching a few of the vblogs on their website I knew that this was the one for me and that the team behind it had the same idea and thoughts as to what this sort of software should be like to use. Although it is still quite new and some features are still being developed I have confidence in the team and that this will continue to evolve into something even greater.

It has actually made me start to enjoy planning and tracking my workload, before it was a task and nothing I had found was flexible enough to keep up with the constantly updating task workload, especially when under pressure and on tight deadlines the normal time where keep track of things and recording time goes out the window.

Highly recommend.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just give it a go and check out their blog.

We've started to use streamtime about two years ago and since then have grown with the product ;-)

Cons: We were in contact with customer support several times and most request were fulfilled.

Pros: It helps us keep all the jobs on track and gives a clear picture as to which jobs are financially 'winning' for our company. Its indispensable for me for many years! We used it as an offline service in the past - the web based version is so much more useful and way better designed too.

Overall: It is a lot more intuitive now than maybe in the beginning when it launched but there are so many frequent useful updates it is not even an issue.

It's an incredibly useful tool, as a middleweight designer, for logging hours, cuing hours for team.

Cons: Would love to see some to-do list style integration. Sometimes I don't realise the full power of new features, but the emails I now get from Streamtime announcing updates have great videos and instructions so it isn't an issue anymore.

Overall: Such an efficient piece of software, it is beautifully designed so we actually like using it and tracking time is no longer a chore.

Pros: I like that Streamtime tracks my hours using visual blocks. It helps me understand where my hours are going easier. It's also super clear whats left on the budget which I like. I like that I could plan my week and get a quick visual of where my time will go. I like that there are various ways you can track your time. IE - I like to search the jobs using job numbers or project names - other people in the team prefer to drag and drop from the side panel. It's cool that Streamtime has allowed for different working styles. All of this means it's so much easier to use than the last job tracker I had.

Overall: It made tracking my hours faster and easier. It's no longer a grind.

Pros: The 'To Do' list is a perfect tool for creatives as it allows them to quickly organise their day. They also love the drag and drop feature as it eliminates manual entries. From a management perspective we can see everything in one place and quickly assign job as required. The 'To Do' list is really one of many great features of this program.

Cons: Truthfully, I wish our company had adopted this software earlier as it's made operating the business and managing teams much easier!

Pros: The daily time-tracking and to do functionality is an amazingly visual way of mapping out daily and weekly schedule. The adjustable project time blocks have helped to improve our time management skills as it feels awful adding more time and great reducing the time taken. Also, being able to invoice the client directly from Streamtime based on the hours spent on a project fits seamlessly into our work flow.

Cons: Originally, we found it frustrating that there was no timer function. However, after using the adjustable project time blocks for a couple weeks, this became a big positive!

Overall: Overall, Streamtime has been an easy and intuitive project to use that has helped to not only improve in-office process but also project and time management.

Recommendations to other buyers: Even though the product may seem different at the beginning, push through the unfamiliar as it will help you to build better work processes and habits.

Pros: Easy to use, I like how you can "drag" the hours up and down to increase/decrease the time you've spent on a project, the colours are fun,

Cons: When listing projects throughout the day I can't see the name of the project, just the item I'm working on, so it's inconvenient to add time to a project that I've already added. Mostly I'm working on similar items for each project so my list is just all the same. If the list was the project names it would be alot faster to modify.

Easy to use job creation, and simple time spent tracking.

Pros: Streamtime helps me capture the time spent on a wide variety of tasks (items) and then invoice the client from within the same application. It is seamless and quick. It also allows me to pre-plan my week and allocate resources within my studio so I know precisely who is doing what and when.

Cons: Generating quotes variations can be a little clunky. Needs a better way of managing the inevitable variations that come with estimating design work.

Overall: Efficiency of time management, better structure around job creation, ability to quickly invoice for ad hoc time spent, ability to quickly edit and assign unplanned time to items/jobs.

Cons: Can't fault it! Any little review/issue item has been fixed or explained by the team and has then made the system even easier to use.

Overall: It has made my day to day life so much easier, from planning my time, doing my timesheet, quoting and invoicing clients and updating my manager. Great product for any size business! I'd recommend it to everyone!

Pros: Overall, it's really easy to use. Planning jobs and creating quotes is really quick and straightforward. It also makes it easy to amend quotes based on client feedback and get them an updated version. It's already saved me a lot of time / made me more efficient.

I've also used quite a few time-tracking apps and this is by far the quickest/least painful way of doing it. Everyone hates tracking their time, but this takes the sting out.

Onboarding my colleague and teaching her how to use it was easy as well. Much of it is self-explanatory so it only took about half an hour and she was up and running.

Cons: The only thing that jumps to mind is adding a job number to a job. It's not easily 'discoverable' how to add a job number unless you know where to look. I always forget to add one for this reason, but it's a 10-second job to go back and add one later so it's not a big deal.

Pros: Love the UI. I like that it's based on being visually organized, as opposed to lines of text. I really dislike searching through lines of copy to find what I'm looking for, and streamtime has nearly eliminated the need to do that.

Cons: I'd really like to be able to share tasks and jobs without having to pay for another user, but I see that as something that goes away once everyone has an account.

Overall: We can track our hours and get really good birds eye view of our jobs, and what each job requires, i.e., what's done what still needs to be done.
