10,000ft – Quick Changes In Real Time

10,000ft is a collaboration application that’s light on its feet. Built for groups and teams, 10,000ft offers interactive project scheduling, visual resource planning, timesheets, and an “in and out board” that colleagues can use to let each other know when they’re working out of the office or staying home sick.

Start each day by visiting your 10,000ft dashboard. That’s where you can see which colleagues are traveling, sick, or presently working in the office. From there, you can click on the “Projects” tab to see a quick overview of all the projects with active status. To add a new project to this group, just type in a few identifying details like the project name, start and end dates, and budget. You can also adjust the billing rates, depending on which team members have been assigned to the project at hand. 10,000ft takes all the information you and your teammates put in, and uses to it create interactive schedules that look unlike anything you’ve probably used before. These schedules show what each colleague is working on, how long he or she has been working on it, and whether that person has been overbooked. If a particular teammate has taken on too much, then you can open up his schedule by adjusting the start and end dates of his next few assignments from 10,000ft’s scheduling page.

The reporting data that people enter into 10,000ft is used to create business analytics reports that show a company’s profitability and active budgets. Meanwhile, the application can also be a great tool for businesses looking for a seamless way to build internal knowledge bases that new employees can search to learn from past clients or projects.

Practical Uses:

  • Keep track of which employees are at work this week
  • Let your teammates know when you’re working from home
  • Avoid over-scheduling your staff by giving them too many projects at once
  • See which staffers worked on which projects in the past

  • 10,000ft integrates with Quickbooks
  • Instant analytics and reports can be customized based on a company’s needs
  • Time estimates can be adjusted by dragging the project bar on the scheduling page
  • Users can quickly find projects by using the search bar

  • Businesses can get completely set up with 10,000ft in under two minutes
  • 10,000ft has a drag-and-drop interface that’s easy to manipulate
  • Users can access information from any computer with an internet connection
  • 10,000ft lets users split assignments

What we didn’t like:
