Professional services companies: know your expected billing

Reviewed on 2021-03-02

The team are helpful and responsive to feedback; the tool is good and gets better every month.

Pros

Runn is great at providing a projection of what the billings of a professional services organisation will be in months to come. It's an essential part of running an effective business which isn't as commonplace as it should be!

Cons

With a lot of pre-existing tools (time-keeping, invoicing, business intelligence), it took a bit of time to get everything integrated nicely. While they do have out-of-the-box integrations that might suit your needs well, we found our needs too specific and needed to make custom integrations.

That said, their APIs have meant that we could do this integration reasonably easily.

Alternatives Considered

Google Sheets

Reasons for Choosing Runn

We had a hand-rolled solution using Google Sheets. It worked, most of time, but it was difficult to maintain, and difficult to use.

Reasons for Switching to Runn

Moving to Runn meant that our whole project-management team could keep our future booked work up to date, and reliable projections of our future billing could be generated whenever we need them.

Great way to do capacity planning

Reviewed on 2020-05-08

Pros

A great way to organise your workstreams and assign teams to the workstreams. Great approach for forwarding planning and projector of team utilisation and capacity planning.

Cons

I can see this work well as a supplier/vendor, planning your capacity plan with a focus on project delivery. The holistic planning view for product development is a little bit tricky to do.

The Best Software for Software Development Agencies

Reviewed on 2021-02-17

Honestly, the team is amazing. They will answer your questions quickly, and offer support when needed. At one point, I spotted a bug with their dropdowns... I sent a support ticket and I had a response and a fix was deployed within two hours. Truly amazing stuff!

Pros

Runn is incredibly easy to use. It's UI is clean and makes it easy for the user to understand how to complete their tasks. Their support team is also incredibly responsive.

Cons

Runn is fairly new, so there are definitely some features we're waiting on... but the fact that the Runn team listens to every suggestion we make is amazing. I have complete confidence that Runn is going to be an incredible fit for us for a long time.

Forecast

Reasons for Choosing Runn

The other options could not support our process(es) for a reasonable price.

Reasons for Switching to Runn

We were in the Forecast sales process for two months before we realized they weren't a good fit. WAY too expensive, too.

Runn is the perfect fit for our company

Reviewed on 2021-02-09

I am extremely happy with Runn. They were very helpful with the initial set up. I had a recommendation for changing the scheduler page which would help my team out. Runn was able to make the change in a few weeks.

Pros

Runn was very easy to set up for our company. I can easily create schedules for our current and upcoming projects. The reporting features are great. I love how easily it shows the profitability per project and scheduled vs worked hours. We have used other software in the past and they had more features than our company needed and were complicated to use. Runn does exactly what we need it to do at a good price point.

Cons

This isn't really a con because they are working on it but there currently isn't time tracking software and we have to integrate with Clockify. I'm looking forward to Runn having their own time tracking software so we don't have to use to apps.

Good Value for Money, Great Customer Service, and Solid Understanding of the Use Case

Reviewed on 2021-02-21

Aside from the high quality and highly usable software, Runn's customer service has been exception - very impressed

Pros

Powerful and feature rich, yet easy to understand and set up. Modelling my team, projects, and resourcing took a remarkably short time and prompted one or two very good questions I hadn't considered.

Cons

Very little that is an out an out con; initially resourcing by percentage wasn't available but this has been added. Managing public holidays is a little fussy, as is the resulting treatment of longer term resourcing but neither of these are a big deal.
