AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Microsoft Project

Project is very well suited for large projects involving numerous personnel, equipment and materials,and expected to take many months or even years to completion. Also, it is useful when the stakeholders of the project are rather different in their capacity and require rather different types of reports (strictly financial reports, slippage in schedule and how the schedule can be brought back, etc.)On the other hand, a company specializing in projects that are relatively simple and only have a span of a few weeks or a couple of months would be better off adopting a simpler Project Management tool, one that costs less and has a much shorter learning curve.

It's so easy to use and I'm able to make it look however I want it to. It allows me to communicate to my team on exactly what needs to be done and when.

Self-directed help is usually just frustrating. Help Desks don't seem to be knowledgeable enough to provide good answers. There doesn't appear to be a way to get immediate help without great expense.

Alternatives Considered

We compared MS Project to QuickBase and Smartsheet. We found that Smartsheet was a simple to use project management tool, which would fit our needs by allowing our end users the ability to create and track their own initiatives, with a minimal learning curve. Smartsheet also provided the level of reporting and sharing options needed.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • It showed our head board how to save time and go straight to the point with the task assigned
  • The people using MS Project were more open-minded to changes and to accepting specific assignments
  • It raised the confidence in the results expected from each project stage, by involving all parties to achieve the best result possible.
