“SCOPE has allowed us greater flexibility in managing our function point count repository. The look and feel of the interface is simple and easy to use and our function point analysts have positive comments on the familiar 'explorer' view of the function hierarchy. The single database file enables SCOPE to be easily and managed and secured within our document management system.”

Benefits of SCOPE:
Two major benefits:
1. The flexibility of reporting I can now prepare count reports in HTML, Excel or MS Word. This allows me to easily incorporate the count or session details within the reports I make to clients. I usually write a comprehensive report describing the count and any difficulties of counting – this will include potential process improvement opportunities as well as conclusions regarding the potential benefits of utilizing the FP counters report in a variety of ways.
2. The ease with which counts can be maintained. We are often asked to prepare a count and then some time later to adjust the count to include a second phase or changes that occurred during the progress of the project. SCOPE allows me the flexibility to manage this and yet maintain the original count so that changes can be traced back to the initial count at any stage in a software product’s life cycle even when the software has been in service for several years.
These benefits allow me to give a more complete service to my clients and hence attract repeat business than I had been able to do with the previous spreadsheet based counting solutions which I have used.

"I have found Scope to be a flexible, clear and logical application with the following key strengths:
*It provides a graphical presentation of the functional decomposition of the Project/System/Application under analysis.
*It supports the capture of very detailed count information.
*It gives the user a capability to expand or collapse functional branches which helps make identification of specific count areas easy.
*The count review processes conducted with the project/system/application experts is greatly streamlined by the ability to make any adjustments needed quickly and easily
*The applications internal logic takes care of all the Functional Size calculation instantly.
*Once the analysis process is complete (and agreed) many invaluable reports can be selected and generated that are specifically designed to meet or exceed client requirements.
Overall I find the product greatly improves my companies counting productivity."
