HOW FunctionFox HELPED CRE8TIV JUICE FIND MORE TIME FOR FUN

Cre8tiv Juice is a Miami-based graphic development company. They work in partnership with clients to create powerful and targeted communication tools through strategic development and design implementation.

Knowing they needed to be more accurate in their time-tracking and billing, they began to look for a system to help them move away from their cumbersome paper timesheets and forms-based system.

"We needed to better track time spent on jobs, we were tired of using paper time sheets and all the other forms we had developed," said Kevin Kelsick, of Cre8tiv Juice. " I saw an ad in HOW magazine. I called FunctionFox. I was impressed with the versatility and utility of the service and with the knowledgeable customer service reps. They were always available when we had a question."

Subscribing to FunctionFox proved to be a sound decision for Cre8tiv Juice.

It provided a simple format for them to track and determine costs associated with projects and it was so easy to implement, they were up and running in a matter of minutes. The entire staff was able to become familiar with the functionality within hours.

"It has really changed the way we look at our time spent on jobs. It has helped us use our 'creative time' more effectively to achieve our client's objectives. It has made everyone more time conscious, as a result we have increased our billed time," said Kelsick. "We've had to expend only minimal time

keeping the system up to date, and it's well worth the effort, when we see the kind of records we're able to keep now."

FunctionFox has facilitated better and more strategic time management at Cre8tiv Juice, so billable time has increased. More billable time means increased productivity and Cre8tiv Juice expects it to lead to a better-looking bottom line.

The company is still discovering options and features that help them schedule jobs, manage communications with clients and make their billing more accurate." We love the itemized job costing, and now that we can use FunctionFox to schedule jobs and assign tasks to various team members, we can better keep projects on target and 'in the black'," said Kelsick. "This is great for us and for our clients."

Cre8tiv Juice has found FunctionFox easy to use, simple to customize and very effective.

Best of all?

SAID KELSICK, "IT ALLOWS MORE TIME FOR CREATING BECAUSE IT REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF TIME WE SPEND ON MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION."
