What is FunctionFox?

FunctionFox is designed specifically to help small creative businesses track time and manage simple and complex projects with its full-featured project management platform. The system generates multiple reports on all project activities, customers, tasks and personnel and delivers them to both managers and stakeholders. With FunctionFox, users can compare and analyze information on their finances, like actual costs and estimates as well as look at their project timelines, budget, performance and productivity of all members.

The tool is intuitive and straightforward to use, allowing staff members to track their time and how long it took them to accomplish certain tasks via the stopwatch feature. The project management tools include a personal calendar, file and document sharing, timelines, milestones, to-do lists, and task management. The project blog makes it easy for team members to collaborate, and you can also enjoy reliable commenting and email alerts functionalities. FunctionFox is also able to simplify making invoices, scheduling meetings and events via the group calendar tool, and creating and managing contact information.

Overview of FunctionFox Benefits

FunctionFox is a simple and intuitive project management tool with time tracking capabilities. The software is designed to streamline all processes of creative companies so that they can deliver top quality services while maintaining high levels of creativity.

Many companies appreciate how FunctionFox takes them from paper-based timesheets and Excel documents to a more modern, fluid way to manage their projects, monitor time and track milestones. The software enables users access to all the knowledge they need without overwhelming them with too much information.

FunctionFox enables users to look back at project’s history, whether it be two weeks ago or two months ago. This functionality makes it easy for managers and team members to review their steps, make the necessary corrections and adjustments so they can move forward and deliver the project as instructed and within schedule.

With task management and scheduling features, companies stay on top of their employees schedule, enabling them to delegate tasks to the most qualified personnel and set their own schedules and milestones. The time tracking function also helps users monitor their work and empowers employees to improve both performance and productivity.

Budget is an essential aspect for any project. FunctionFox helps project teams plan their budget and ensures that spending is kept within the bounds of their finances by making sure that production schedules and efforts are aligned with the project goals and requirements.

What Problems Will FunctionFox Solve?

1. Building transparency, accountability, and trust for solo creative professionals: A common problem for freelancers and consultants is establishing a professional, trust-based relationship with clients. Because there is only one person to handle all facets of a project, unbillable administrative tasks such as tracking time, often take second place to more pressing. This can lead to inaccurate time records, billing conflicts, and ultimately to a lack of accountability and trust, as in the following scenario:

Case study: Dan is a freelance marketing consultant whose haphazard monthly billing process saw him trying to reconstruct the work he had done for his 6 or 7 clients by trolling through emails, project proposals, ads, social media posts, meetings, photo shoots, and more. Unable to back up his invoices with solid details, he often had to discount his fees, or engage in an unpleasant conflict with clients. Trust was in short supply. Within a month of purchasing his very affordable FunctionFox Classic, Dan had improved the accuracy of his invoices. The software’s simple Timesheets kept track of details, instant Reports about projects and clients provided transparent back up to professional-looking estimates and invoices, and Dan’s clients appreciated his honesty and accountability, beginning to trust him as never before. Within a few months, he was able to negotiate sizeable retainer increases, and at year end his billings were up by almost 50%.

Features: FunctionFox Classic: Timesheet with stopwatch timer, Reports on Clients, Projects and Status, CEO Desktop, Estimates and Invoicing.

2. Freeing time for creativity in a small creative company: For small to medium sized creative companies, there are often challenges in scheduling projects, ensuring an even distribution of work among team members, and reducing time spent on unbillable tasks to free people for the creative work that keeps the company going

Case study: A small, Miami-based graphic design company developed their own paper and forms-based project and time management system. Over time, though, it became cumbersome and confusing, and maintaining it was time away from billable creative tasks that were the lifeblood of the company. Within a few days of purchasing FunctionFox Premier, the company began to see a difference. The product’s CEO Desktop, Project Calendar and Project Scheduling showed what was happening with each project, the Project blog kept everyone on the same page, and Action Assignment and Resource Allocation efficiently streamlined workflow, and Timeline and Milestone features ensured that work was completed on time. As a result, staff members are not only spending more of their time on billable creative tasks, but because they are more time conscious, billable hours in general have increased.

Features: FunctionFox Premier: Project Scheduling with Project Calendar, Timelines with Milestones, Action & Production Reports, Resource Availability

3. Streamlining workflow and improving communication in an In-house creative group: In-house creative departments face different challenges than outside agencies or freelance creatives do. There is always work coming in – no-one needs to go out and get it – but it is sometimes difficult to complete projects in a timely way. Sometimes an in-house marketing department has trouble getting the details they needed to begin a project, and often, once a project is underway, milestones and deadlines for creative are missed. Understanding the cause of these delays is crucial:

Case study: A busy in-house creative team found it challenging to meet project deadlines and milestones, which had a negative impact on their reputation in the larger organization – there was a lack of respect and a lot of finger-pointing. The team needed solutions, and turned to FunctionFox In-house. They worked with their FunctionFox rep to create a project request form customized to provide all details needed to initiate new projects, putting the onus on departments to provide timely and accurate details. The addition of a ‘waiting for department approval’ status in FunctionFox provided the creative group with accurate metrics to back up their suspicion that workflow and deadline roadblocks were chiefly due to delays on the departmental-client side. When steps had been taken to improve turn-around time. This not only boosted the reputation of the marketing team, but also built trust and improved communication between the marketing team and the organization as a whole.

Features: FunctionFox In-house: Customizable Multiple Request Forms for all outside departments, Cycle and Capacity Reports, Unlimited Custom fields, Advanced Report Generator with template reports saving to Excel, CSV, PDF & HTML

Pros: FunctionFox has simple, clean and intuitive design which make the platform easy to use. I’m using this solution for ten years. Every Monday we have meetings and we are ready to manage the following days. We can track time and keep track of everyone’s performance. We can keep track of our time and expenses and to focus more on important things instead of administrative work.

Cons: I’m using it for 10 years and I haven’t found of something to dislike about this platform.

Pros: This system is perfectly made for small size businesses. I like that there are lots of time tracking tools and complex, full featured set of apps. The other good thing is that it can be used on every device, whether it is desktop, Android or iOS. The price is affordable and there is great support team that is always available.

Cons: The UI needs to be more clear and clean because it looks overwhelming right now.
