Megaherz GmbH was founded over 30 years ago and has grown a lot over the years, we went from a small company with around 15 employees to now being over 50.
Rebecca Steinke’s Megaherz GmbH production manager said “I started in this company nearly 20 years ago, I was lying on the floor colouring paper notes doing our planning! Over the years, we moved to excel and for a short period of time we used another planning program which was a little weird, so we went back to excel again and after all that we found farmerswife! “
As the company was growing the number of projects also grew. We needed a system to organise all projects in one place and have full visibility of what was going on. With so many different excel plans for every project’s shooting and postproduction, we needed to get all the problems of planning in one system.
We have been using farmerswife for 4 years and a half. We use it to do all our planning as well as scheduling. And we are now introducing the budgeting module to our workflow which will be great for our financial planning!
We’re now able to use farmerswife more individually and tailor it to the specific workflows in our company for filming. We can not only schedule our people, but also all our resources. So now our work is more effective. farmerswife has really helped us with planning shoots, postproduction and invoicing our projects. Before farmerswife, we had many different plans for every project, and now we have all our work in one place!
It has been a great help in the last years as we have been able to use it individually but also work together with our clients.
farmerswife has made planning easier and has given us clear visibility of our projects….and we love the funny icons. It’s very fun to work with them. We really love that! farmerswife has a lot of colours and icons, it’s not grey and boring to work with. So, it makes work more fun for us, it’s a great idea!
farmerswife is a very powerful software with many features and it needs training to get the best out of all its potential. We needed a few months to get used to the workplace in farmerswife but once we got a hold of it it’s very good. In general, we think it’s a great system!
Grit is wonderful and always addressable for our problems!
