Nothing in life is perfect... But FunctionFox is pretty darn close

5.0 last month New

Comments: Before, we had to collect time per client, project and task manually from consultants every week. And then compile those time reports into a collective spreadsheet. It was like pulling teeth. But with FunctionFox, all we need to do is simply track time for users in the platform, and then export a .csv spreadsheet. It's ridiculously simple and easy – and we love it.

Pros:

What we like most about FunctionFox is the ease of use. It's user-friendly, pretty self-explanatory, and it has a ton of features that would come in handy for a variety of businesses. For us, specifically, time tracking by project, task and client are super important because that's how we report our time to our clients. Prior to FunctionFox, this was a daunting task and caused many stress headaches. Now, it's simple, quick and painless.

Cons:

There's nothing we liked least, per se. There is a feature we wanted but wasn't exactly available. When we have a certain number of hours to use per a monthly retainer, we sometimes carry over unused hours on that retainer to the next month. There was no way to track those hours as they add up, yet not go over a certain limit.

Great Product Great Staff

5.0 last month New

Comments: My experience with function fox has been great. I've found the support from the company very responsive and the product

Pros:

The product is easy to use, with a lot of features. Was easy to learn due to the responsiveness of the team members and built in support. Couldn't recommend it more.

Cons:

I wish the invoice ad report side was a bit more customizable but a very minor comment.

Alternatives Considered: Harvest and Basecamp

Reasons for Switching to FunctionFox: It had everything I was looking for in the most simple way possible.

Excellent product, works well, does what we need

5.0 last month New

Comments: What a great product, it's simple, it works well, and has never failed to do what we need. The sales and onboarding process was done very well and I felt taken-care of the entire time. I highly recommend this for time-tracking.

Pros:

I love the level of detail I can drill-down to with timekeeping. Once we set up our project templates and task list template, creating new projects was a breeze. Time tracking takes a couple clicks and the records everything we need to know to bill clients and run payroll. It's not overly-complicated either. It's simple and it does exactly what it needs to do.

Cons:

Everything is so malleable within the system, so anything that annoyed me about the program I have been able to change - I love everything about it, I have no complaints!

Alternatives Considered: Time Tracker, TimeSolv and BigTime

Reasons for Choosing FunctionFox: Quickbooks Time used to be a product called t-sheets and it was amazing. Then Intuit got ahold of it and ruined it like they do. It stopped doing what we needed and started trying (and failing) to do a bunch of fancy integrations instead, so we had to find another solution.

Switched From: QuickBooks Time

Reasons for Switching to FunctionFox: I have practice management software for project tracking and invoicing for the different kinds of projects we work. Because we work multiple types of projects, we needed a time-tracking solution separate from those project management software. FunctionFox lets us track all the details we need and doesn't have to be inside any other software.

Feedback regarding Function Fox

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have been very impressed with the FunctionFox staff and their project management software from the very beginning of the process. The sales rep. was very knowledgeable and explained the features and benefits very clearly. The samples and tutorials were great and made the learning process kinda fun.
FunctionFox's support team are exceptional at responding to our questions and reply promptly with detailed user friendly instruction on how to take full advantage of the powerful tools and functionality. Deciding to use FunctionFox in our face paced graphic design company was a great decision. It helps us spend more time on being creative and less time retyping project names, task names, design rates etc.

Pros:

The software is designed with the creative industry in mind. You can set up project names, common tasks with specific hourly rates. When it comes time invoice a project I no longer have to request time sheets from staff. I just log in to the software, select the project name within the appropriate dates and all of the information that I need is presented quickly and efficiently which makes invoicing easy.

Cons:

I can honestly say that I cannot find anything wrong with this software.

Alternatives Considered: monday.com

Reasons for Switching to FunctionFox: We chose FunctionFox because it was originally designed for an advertising agency so it was a perfect fit for our graphic design company. Much like an advertising agency, we handle multiple details and aspects of a project. FunctionFox software helps to keep a birds eye view on project details, project costs and scheduling. It just seemed like the best choice for our company.

It won't make you lunch, but it does everything else.

4.0 last year

Comments: We use Function Fox to keep track of our team's time and to quote future projects. The reporting gives us insight into areas we need to improve or quote differently. The system provides us with a big picture view of our workload along with the granular data for digging into the details. So far, I haven't found anything it cannot do, except make me lunch. :) To make the most of the software, I think it's wise to have a dedicated project manager on staff, although our designers embraced it fairly quickly and enter their own actions and other data.

Pros:

Function Fox provides several ways to track time, so designers have their choice of methods. Even though we don't use it like we should (we're hiring a project manager soon), the Gantt charts are awesome for planning out a project and adjusting schedules as needed. I don't have to train my designers how to use it; Function Fox provides one-to-one live tutorials.

Cons:

The user interface is not as user-friendly or aesthetically pleasing as some of the other products.
