Streamtime ist ein Projektmanagement-Tool, das typischerweise in kleinen bis mittelgroßen Kreativunternehmen eingesetzt wird, die eine effektive Verwaltung von Projekten, Teams und Aufgaben benötigen. Grafikdesigner oder Werbeagenturen können Jobs planen, Fortschritte verfolgen und Chancen erkennen. Zu den Funktionen der Plattform gehören Studiomanagement-Tools für Vorschläge, Teamplanung, Zeiteingabe und Rechnungsstellung.
Streamtime hat die Arbeitszeittabelle durch die Verwendung intuitiver To-do-Listen neu erfunden, die automatisch aus Arbeitsplänen ausgefüllt werden. Studio-Manager können Aufgaben von „zu erledigen“ auf „erledigt“ ändern und sogar persönliche Aufgaben zu ihrem Zeitplan hinzufügen. Alle Stunden, die du für das Abschließen von Aufgaben benötigst, werden in den Jobberichten erfasst. Die Plattform ermöglicht es Benutzern, Aufgaben problemlos zwischen Teammitgliedern zu verschieben, Termine zu verschieben und Aufgaben im laufenden Betrieb neu zu ordnen.
Projektpläne werden mit einem einzigen Klick in offizielle Stellenangebote umgewandelt und können zum Drucken oder Senden in eine PDF-Datei umgewandelt werden. Die Integration von Streamtime mit Xero ermöglicht eine automatisch berechnete Kalkulation unter Verwendung der geloggten Zeitdaten des Teams, wodurch Arbeitspläne in Rechnungen umgewandelt werden. Das intelligente Dashboard der Lösung zeigt Fortschrittsberichte, Job-over-Run-Informationen und Leistungen in jeder gewünschten Detailstufe an. Die Funktion „Deep Data Dive“ filtert Jobs nach Kategorie für maßgeschneiderte Berichte, die als beliebiges Dateiformat exportiert werden können.
Helps us to keep track of project progress and manage a job from quote through to invoice.
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.
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
Thanks for the review Paul, We're looking at how we can improve that data on the job screen to better reflect the used / planned better.
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.
(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.
(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.
Thanks for your support Chris!
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.
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.
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.
An easy project planning and time registration. This gives me a realy good insight in my way of working.
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.
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.
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
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.
