    Pros: 

    Really helpful in organising a team of 25 developers

    Love the financial insights that it can show via reports

    Easy to manage&create invoices

    Cons: 

    Lack of burndown chart in projects

    Productive is a core tool for our agency for a bit over a year now and we feel that it has become much more than a tool - it's part of company culture. Here at Factory.hr we make sure we are transparent to the clients in all aspects and Productive.io really helps us get the best of that. With Productive you can show your clients how much time you've spent on each task, what tasks do you have remaining to do and even engage them in discussion over a certain topic you choose.

    Financial control over the company liabilities and salaries is awesome. Indeed with this level of simplicity and good reports you can't go uninformed about the profitability of each project you do and agency overall.

    Cherry on top if their dedicated support. No question was left unanswered and they are on top of all of your suggestions and ideas. Excited to see what the next year of cooperation will bring. Surely only more good things!

  • Pros: 

    Amazing features, easy to use, everything we need is in one place, finance report is very useful

    Cons: 

    None

    We have been using Productive in ENTG for almost 4 years and can only say the best about this product. We use it for organising projects, tracking time, invoicing, reports, financial review... It's great that they add new features that we always end up using in our work.

    If we need anything at any time, the team from Productive responds very quickly to the messages and always helps us.

    An excellent team that stands behind great product that we will always be very happy to recommend.

Hi ProductHunt, First off, big thanks to @bramk for hunting us! It’s a pleasure being able to finally present Productive to this wonderful audience. I’ve spent years working in software development agencies. During that time I’ve had the opportunity of trying dozens of wonderful project management tools that were supposed to help me and my team deliver on time, ensure high quality, and high profit margins. Most of these tools fill out their specific roles perfectly. However, we always found ourselves looking for an integrated approach and tried to combine “complementary” software that ultimately communicated quite poorly one with the other. Furthermore, even if we set things up to work as intended we still lacked critical insights that would really step our game up and help us be more productive and equally profitable. We decided to do something about that and ended up building Productive - the only tool we needed to run a profitable agency. Productive integrates all of the features an agency needs to get the job done into a single solution that was built without cutting any corners. We wanted a tool that was robust, yet intuitive, full of features yet affordable. Most importantly, Productive focuses on profitability, giving you a realistic insight into your bottom line, and keeping you informed about the status of your projects and their budgets at all times. I know it sounds a bit too good to be true but we did it and we are ready to share Productive with you. Let me know what you think, I’m looking forward to your comments and suggestions. Jan, Productive.io

Congrats on launching Productive on PH! I've been following productive's and Jan's journey since I've interviewed him for our "Meet the CTO" series (https://usersnap.com/blog/meet-t...) and it's pretty impressive what they have achieved so far!
Jan VarljenMaker@jan_varljen · CTO, Productive.io
@tompeham Thank you Thomas! Since our interview I managed to get married, get a baby, grow a bigger beard and improve Productive and our team in the same time! We should probably do a new interview ;)

I know of Productive since my early days in Tradecore, Agency we hired to develop ios apps used it, we didn't see any awesome side of it at that time but really good tool for collaboration with other teams / agencies / dev shops. But that was our experience of being client role, administrative and employee role are just crazy good. Madetight.com uses productive for last 6 months, and its a game changer. Easiness of running agency in one software, from: leads, sales, project budget, custom boards, time tracking, overhead, productivity. Awesome tool in one word. Congrats @jan_varljen on launching and I hope more creative agencies and dev outsourcing companies will see value of this software.

@vladdesign Hey Vlad! Thank you for the kind words.

Awesome product! I'll be giving this a try. Side note: you need bright/attention grabbing call to action buttons on your site. The site buttons blend in with the white background right now.

@andrewleereal Thank you for the note about the CTA buttons. We'll look into it :)
