Function Point Productivity Software has been helping creative agencies streamline their businesses for 19 years, and has published a Testimonial eBook to illustrate the ways in which it helped creative agencies to become more profitable. The eBook is divided into six sections, which feature fp. clients’ testimonial stories on how the cloud-based, project management software helped to improve workflow, and the bottom line. The sections include topics of scalability, features, QuickBooks integration, consultation, support, and profitability and productivity.
Function Point specializes in providing solutions tailored to creative agencies, design studios and internal marketing departments. “Our clients love that we’re experts in this niche industry, because we understand the day-to-day operations and time management issues, as well as their big picture challenges, such as financial reporting,” said Chris Wilson, Founder and President of Function Point. “The eBook gives a quick glimpse into how we’ve solved some of these problems for creative agencies, such as finding efficiencies through synchronizing workflow, simplifying reporting and making financial planning more effective.”
One of the many issues creative agencies struggle with is scalability, and the eBook outlines how Function Point has addressed this challenge for clients by helping them stay organized through periods of growth. “We thought once we got to a certain number of clients, it would get really burdensome, because we would have so many tasks, time management would be impossible,” said Adriel Michaud, Partner & Director of SEO at Top Draw. “But Function Point let us take on more clients and be more agile, do more tasks for the clients, and we didn’t have to preplan everything.”
Since Function Point is specifically designed and built for creative agencies, the software’s features reflect the industry’s needs, and include: a Business Intelligence dashboard for real-time business data; time-saving project management; easy-to-use time sheets; flexible invoicing; full-service CRM; real-time financial reports; client portals; and integrated accounting options. Andrea Gibson, Operations Manager at The Met Agency said, “Function Point has more functionality than we could have dreamed of. It’s taken away our need to create reports manually in spreadsheets and has enabled us to better plan our projects. Every day we are discovering new features and info it can provide us.”
The project management software seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks Online, which assists clients in being able to achieve financial visibility and profitability on projects, and their business as a whole. The eBook demonstrates how clients appreciate the integration of Function Point with a long-established accounting package. Jamie Farmen, Media Director at Narrative Inc. noted, “Finding Function Point, an industry-specific project management solution, gave us the specific information we needed with the capability of integrating with a widely-used accounting package that was the right size for our small business.”
In the Consultation and Support sections, creative agencies discuss how Function Point’s commitment to customer service has enabled them to use the project management software to their businesses’ maximum benefit. Ultimately, the returns are seen in a more productive workflow, and an increase in profits. “The real value of this software is the customer service,” said Claire Strande, Account Executive at Judson Design. “Any small issue that arises, I can pick up the phone and it’s fixed.” Since the implementation of new software can be daunting for any business, Function Point provides a variety of training options including one-on-one sessions, webinars, YouTube videos and more. George Waite, Program Manager at Chute Gerdeman, said, “The trainer was fabulous at training our group. She took time to understand our needs and then was able to direct us in the best direction. She was able to provide an answer for all the curve balls we threw at her.”
Accountability and exceptional customer service are pillars of Function Point’s company values reflected in the eBook’s client comments. Wilson remarked, “It’s another reason why our clients love working with us—our culture is built on a foundation of focus, respect, growth and balance. “Focus,” in particular, means that we embrace the needs of our customer and are accountable for results.”
Function Point software has had a significant impact on growing the productivity and profitability of creative agencies, through simplifying collaboration, centralizing information, and delivering real-time business data. The Productivity and Profitability section of the eBook demonstrates how clients were able to streamline company processes by using Function Point’s integrated software. For instance, Shezad Manjee, Founder and CCO at Dallas HD Films said, “Having easy access to the analytics available in Function Point, we have re-engineered our workflow to be more efficient with our resources, more responsive to our clients and as a result, more profitable.”
