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

Microsoft Project is very well suited for a large company where various projects are running under different teams and managers above them. It helps best track the human resources that a company has and how they are being used by the company. It increases productivity and helps track their work as well. It follows Agile methodology which is a state of the art project development lifecycle. It is not recommended for small and microscale projects as more time would be spent on managing rather than the original development.

Cons

AceProject

  • Expand on data tracking

  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

Microsoft Project

  • Overall financial management - Microsoft Project is not indicated for complex financial management, such as Net Present Value, S-Chart, and others. It is strongly suggested to complement this capability with either an Excel or integration with SAP or Oracle Primavera Unifier.
  • KPIs and dashboards - Microsoft Project still lacks advanced charts and analytics. This should be complemented as well with other tools/software.

For basic schedule building, which is what I primarily use it for, is great and very easy. I don't really understand much else although I would like to learn because everything I do use it for is very easy to do and learn

Microsoft Project

This tool is still underrated amongst the software engineers as Microsoft, like Giant, haven't been totally focused on the development of the tool which results in less popularity amongst other tools who are specially built for industry projects like Atlassian's JIRA. However, we got our problems solved thanks to Microsoft Project in the same way Atlassian showed us in their demo.

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.

Microsoft Project

  • Increased productivity and on-time task achievement
  • More efficiency for remote members located away from HQ
  • Time saving
