Project & task management for creative teams and businesses4.8/5 (76 Bewertungen)
Streamtime is a project management tool typically used within small to medium-sized creative companies that need an effective way to manage projects, teams and tasks. Graphic designers or advertising agencies can plan jobs, track progress, and spot opportunities. The platform’s features include studio management tools for proposals, team scheduling, time entry and invoicing.
Streamtime has reinvented the timesheet by utilizing intuitive to-do lists that are auto-populated from job plans. Studio managers can drag tasks from ‘to do to ‘done’ and even add personal tasks to their schedule. All hours spent on completing tasks are captured in the job reports. The platform enables users to easily move tasks between team members, shift deadlines, and rearrange tasks on the fly.
Project plans are converted into official job quotes with a single click, and can be generated into a PDF file for printing or sending. Streamtime’s integration with Xero enables auto-calculated costing using the team’s logged time data, turning job plans into invoices. The solution’s smart dashboard displays progress reports, job over-run information, and accomplishments in any desired level of detail. The ‘deep data dive’ feature filters jobs by category for tailored reports, that can be exported as any preferred file format.
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

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.

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.

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.
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.
It cannot read my mind. I would like the developers to put some energy into a direct interface with my brain.

Einfach zu bedienen und zu folgen
Das Ausführen eines Designteams bedeutet, dass wir bei der Planung, Verfolgung und Berichterstattung über Projekte wirklich gut sein müssen. Ich war auf der Suche nach etwas wirklich Gutes, dies zu tun und verbrachte ein paar Monate und viele kostenlose Tests auf andere Software.
Von Anfang an fühlte sich Streamtime wie eine tolle Passform für unser Geschäft. Ein gut strukturiertes und elegant einfaches Layout machte es leicht, loszulegen. Als wir anfingen, es zu benutzen, entdeckten wir dann, dass es viele zusätzliche Features gab, die es möglich machten, alles zu tun, was passiert, wenn sich Projekte ändern. Es ist offensichtlich, dass es schon lange hinter Streamtime gedacht hat, das es mit echten Weltprojekten sehr nutzbar macht. Darüber hinaus gibt es einen Sinn für Spaß und guten Humor in der Software, die hilft, es angenehm zu machen, wenn Sie jeden Tag verwenden.
Ich habe keine lange Liste von Sachen, die ich am wenigsten über die Software mag. Ich würde gerne mehr Integrationen sehen.
