Pros: If you are used to using clunky old project management, jobs systems and tasking for your staff then move over to Streamtime. Not only is it really really intuitive it's very very simple in terms functionality. What appears very low spec at first really isn't its just designed well with minimal fuss.

Pros: The system is incredibly intuitive, it saves time and is very easy for all members of the team to use.

Cons: The element that we, as a team, least like about the software, Streamtime, is the unpredictable updates.

Overall: Project clarity
Estimates that feed into invoices
Invoices built from estimates
Schedules at a glance

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.

Brilliant!It makes my job so much easier.

Pros: This software has saved me so much time, before I was working between spread sheets to track jobs/ invoice/ record time, now its all in one place and easy to use.

The customer service and support is great and responsive.

Cons: So far I haven't found much I don't like about this software. The only change I would like is some customisable fields in the jobs section, where I can reference purchase orders and other bits and bobs.

Overall: Im not the most organised person in the world and this really helps me to keep track of my jobs and time management.

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.

Vendor Response

by Streamtime on September 19, 2017

Thanks Warwick for your kinds words. Its great to see so many Architects coming on board. We made some recent changes to help with the fixed fee projects and we are not done yet!

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: Very user friendly, love the clean interface. I've used another project management software in my previous workplace and it was way slower and harder to navigate compared to Streamtime. The software is really intuitive to use for first-timers. The latest version of Streamtime is certainly a big improvement from the last version.

Pros: I love the user experience, the look and the flexibility of Streamtime. Its flexibility when creating quotes or invoices is great.

Cons: There isn't much that I don't like. There are a couple of minor features that could be added but the Streamtime team are updating constantly.

Overall: Speed of invoicing, quoting and job management.

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.

Pros: The ease of use. They have really taken a user centred approach when designing Streamtime. Smart timesheeting is awesome! I also love the easy quoting that can be quickly turned into a project, dynamite!

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.

Best thing ever! We're hooked. Once you get your mind into how it all works it's game changing.

Pros: We love this system! Its saved us time and hassle. Once you get your head around everything the ease of use is invaluable. Our company Griffin Grave now don't know what we did without it. Lucky we got onto this sooner rather than later. I would highly recommend the investment. The return in value is 10 fold.

Cons: The invoicing is a bit funny sometimes and not sure if its sent properly. Theres been the odd glitch.

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.

Cons: I am yet to be frustrated or annoyed by this software yet. Love it. A big improvement on the last version.

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

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.

Pros: This system is so easy to use on a day to day basis and then great at the end of the week/month for reporting. Ryan and the team are also fantastic help when you are initially learning and have complicated questions when in the deep end. I'd recommend this product to everyone!

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: 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

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.

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.

Comments: Comments:
I'm a digital marketing manager in a small full-service agency with anywhere between 5-6 team members collaborating on projects. After having troubles with software that was clunky and difficult for everyone to use. So far Streamtime's had a short learning curve and been adopted by the entire team.

Pro: Extremely intuitive and easy to manage days, weeks and months.

Cons: This may not be the best solution for 'task management' as documents and detailed briefs might need to sit outside of Streamtime.

It arrived at just the right time!

Pros: The flexibility the team have with their workflow and day to day jobs - things pop up all the time so the ease of moving jobs around is awesome!

Cons: Not allowing us to change the date of an overall project. We have to go in a change dates of every individual job within that project - sometimes you have to change the end date of all of them!

Overall: Overall, as a project manager and designer, I need the workflow side of my job to be as painfree as possible - and it is. In a nutshell, Streamtime is great. Quick, easy, manageable and the flexibility the studio has is a winner!

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.

Thanks Adam, we've been working hard on performance as we have scaled and had such a big influx of users (good and bad!) Things should be sweet now though. Appreciate your kind words.

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.

Cheers Zak, Its amazing how many people think they need a timer but they are so demotivating and demoralising - Humans not Robots! I haven't come across anyone yet who regrets ditching a stopwatch while they are working.

Streamtime - An emerging benchmark and future king!

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: 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.
