Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Planful reviews

I love the people that I work with mostly, and the system is pretty amazing. I can easily geek out about it. Dynamic Reports are excellent, user friendly and add great value! The ease of setting up permissions and security is wonderful, and Planful does it's best to continue to make changes to their system to

Implemented this software solution at my office. It was less expensive than some of the other providers, and we expected the product to perform as such. There are some drawbacks to the product, but I think these are in-line with the price.

- Bradley G. Manager

Host Analytics Dynamic Planning has been the most flexible, dynamic and user-friendly analytical tool I have ever used in my 30+ year's career. Their customer support is second to none, and has always been there to solve any issues we encounter. The platform is ever-changing, based on challenges faced by and recommendations made by their customers. Each time operations requests a new or different way to analyze our market conditions, financial results, or forecasted projections, our department can produce their requests quickly and in real-time.

Function Point reviews

Function Point has grown with us as we've grown as a company. Their support team is responsive when question arise, and I know that everyone from their account team to product development to support is available when I need them. Their interest in soliciting feedback and involving clients in their roadmap development is so welcome.

- Jen M. Business Operations Director

Overall we have a great experience

- Jordi M. CEO

CRM could be more funnel friendly to the sales process. While FP has the fundamental features, the process is more manual than other systems reviewed. Creating estimates could be streamlined.

Pros & cons

Planful

Pros
OVerall is a great tool for the ease of standardizing and managing our reports
Great experience for me
We have a dedicated business systems resource on our team who helps a lot
Can include links to images of transaction source documents, providing great transparency in reporting
Spotlight for Excel add in to develop custom, refreshable reports is a great help
I honestly think it's great, particular for users whose current ERP systems are lacking in the core FP&A functionalities Planful provides."

Cons
A data pull is not immediate and can cause some frustration if data is not pulled 100% accurately the first time
The interface is pretty dated
I also mainly use chrome as my browser and there seems to be a lag time when scrolling in a template which is a bit of a pain
We have also transformed to a rolling forecast using modeling, so that the annual budgets required by lenders comes from the forecasts, and is no longer a time-consuming annual task
The new row sets are difficult to get to the exact detail and adjusting cold width can't be done in a cluster in chrome."

Function Point

Pros
The up to date time tracking and reporting has been fantastic for us and given us a true pulse on the business, as we track and communicate project progress with our clients and team
Onboarding and setup was great and so nice that we had a dedicated person to answer all questions that pop up
I loved that we drove the screen during implementation- great training technique
I love that it can adapt to how I like to use it
Having worked with other applications over the years, it incorporates the things I liked about those and improves on what I didn't like
I think that Function Point covers a wide breadth of project management tasks
I like that the timesheets are in the same place as projects, it makes it really easy to label tasks throughout the day."

Cons
That you can't create an estimate and then assign it to a job
The process is very linear and can be very frustrating
There are small issues that can get frustrating
I can't delete a time in my timesheet when I entered the wrong job number
Do not have the option to change info from a previous week when I realize that I made a mistake, on the job service
The user interface/dashboard could use some upgrading
Also, the amount of clicks that it takes to find what you're looking for can sometimes be frustrating."
