What do you like best?
It is super simple to use. With 90 busy engineers and designers, we needed a tool that would provide workload managers with the info they needed without being time consuming or difficult to learn. Float has performed brilliantly. It's very easy to bulk upload projects which we do once per week.
What do you dislike?
We needed to make all users 'Admin' in order for everyone to see all projects as soon as they are added (otherwise we needed to add every project to each person). But this works well for us.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
For our engineering consultancy firm it works perfectly for managing our week to week workload. At the moment we don't use it for more longer term planning. I strongly recommend doing a trial with one team in your firm before full implementation.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We used to use Excel to manbage our workload, but it was clunky, manual, time consuming and difficult to use. Float makes it simple for everyone to enter their workload every couple of days. It makes people more aware of their upcoming workload and makes workload managers aware of who is overloaded and underloaded.
