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

If your organization uses office productivity tools from Microsoft, it is no brainer to use Microsoft Projects. The tool integrates well with other Microsoft tools. It is the most popular project management tool and most people with expertise on this tool are available in the market. For some projects we hire contractors and we find most contractors are well versed with this tool, so it makes easier for us to hit the ground running.

Pros

AceProject

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.
Kyle Culpepper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Project

  • Being a Microsoft product, Project integrates extremely well into the Microsoft family of applications!
  • Furthermore, the user interface is similar to other Microsoft applications. Therefore, there is a valuable familiarity out of the box.
  • Project is incredibly detail-oriented and always receiving valuable updates. Project Online is now the cloud-based version of Project.
  • Scheduling works really well for the most part. One can be extremely detailed with Gannt charts and other project management metrics!

Cons

AceProject

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.
Kyle Culpepper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Project

  • Expertise Needed: The software is not always easy to use or intuitive. I took several Project courses, on top of my project management certifications, to understand the software better. While all the elements are there for anyone familiar with standard project management processes, it takes experience and training to really get the best out of the software.
  • Collaboration: Project does not work well with multiple users simultaneously. There's no real-time updating, and if we had multiple project managers, there'd be no way to work together on the same projects.
  • Price: Project is expensive, largely due to it being an industry standard.

Microsoft Project was for many years the reference tool when you were talking about project management software, even if it has some gaps. However, in the last several years, other tools emerged and covered those gaps and are getting more and more users. Microsoft needs to keep up with the trends as they did with adding Project Server. However, that needs a significant rework.

I’m giving MS Project an 8 because in general this is a solid scheduling program. It’s definitely designed with the professional in mind, and they have done well preparing the program to integrate with their other Microsoft products. The program is a workhorse so if you have serious scheduling needs then I would highly recommend MS Project.

In all cases where I didn't use Project, i used an application given by Excel freely as a template, when you open Excel 2013 or higher. It is basically a Gantt chart, with several capabilities built in. All what is necessary for you to do in order to quickly get a basic Gantt chart, is to create a basic Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), including names assigned to each task and the estimated number of hours that will be expanded on each task. This information is filled in the lower side of an Excel sheet displayed in landscape view. On the upper portion of the sheet, a Gantt chart is immediately created. It is a very simple tool, no learning curve required and is free. I do like it a lot and use it a lot, since lately I'm involved in many simultaneous projects, however, each one of them has a short span, not exceeding two weeks.

Return on Investment

AceProject

  • 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 | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Project

  • We are currently only now opening the door to these opportunities but do see ways to implement and save in areas that include a reduction of man power and gaining efficiencies and reducing cost and schedule by providing more real time relevant data to our project team which will allow them to make better informed and timely decisions.
