    I like Brightpod. We used their previous product, DeskAway, which we actually liked a bit more for our needs (cannot remember why now as we've found workarounds over the last three years!). It is good for us, and we need to organize multiple task lists for multiple clients. We need to be able to monitor task progression and completion, as well as to track time by resource. We need to prioritize and focus our resources, and we need to review time tracking/performance reports. All possible in Brightpod. We especially like the access we can give to clients, which is on a task list basis, so they can see some task lists in their pod but not others, which allows us to not overwhelm them with unnecessary info, but at the same time, accomplish the detailed tracking we need.

    With InEight, we are able to manage the project time schedule, control the cost and forecast the total project cost. It is also possible to manage the field execution in order to reflect the actual progress and manage the workers' payroll more efficiently.

    Pros

    Brightpod

    • A very visually pleasing layout of projects in a Kanban style view.
    • Keeps all communication on a task or project in one place, so that everyone is on the same page.
    • Great template system for recurring projects like onboarding or deploying a specific service that has a defined timeline.
    • Flexile recurring tasks.

    InEight

    • Tagging segments of work.
    • User defined views and descriptions for all screens.
    • Customizable ribbons to provide an efficient use of the software.
    • Multiple layers/dependents to allow for an extreme drill down of the work and the ability to roll up to a more useful level for upper management review.
    • You can bid the work as you would build it, in detail.

    Cons

    Brightpod

    • Reports.
    • Team Member workload.

    InEight

    • The import/export buttons are exactly the opposite of what you would expect. not intuitive and the logos for these should be swapped.
    • The software is hard to train users upon. New users require 3-6 months of use before getting proficient. I think this is because many of the best features are buried in menus, three clicks deep.
    • The claiming exports immediately default partial claim items to the user who claimed previously. You need to update your name every time you update a partial claim line item.
    • There are many add-ins that should just be included with InEight Standard, instead of having to install extras to make the software usable.

      It's working very well for our organization.

      Some features with InEight's TeamBinder are worthy of single use, however the review feature and subsequent revision and version numbering could be improved. We will be aiming to roll out the package to encompass our internal documentation in the near future and will be in a better position to judge the usability after that point in time.

      Usability

      Brightpod

      Brightpod is easy to use. We have several levels of users, some are from outside the USA and some are here. We needed something that could be used by programmers, coders, technical project managers, marketing individuals, and administrators. We get a thumbs up from all these user types. The system is hardly ever down, so we are able to use 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

      InEight's TeamBinder is a cloud based service and is therefore accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. All staff members are able to perform any duties required from the office or at home, in the review workflow to get documents to clients and ensuring that the document meets our internal standards for document presentation.

      Support is active, responsive and always there for their customers. Although the first setting of the product is not that complicated, technical team is available to help if any issue detected and if any implementation guidance required. The support interaction with customers is excellent allowing the user to feel free asking anything regarding the InEight functionalities.

      Since the original inception, I have been required to overhaul the system so that it is more user friendly and combines both aspects of our business, documentation and drawings. Being able to control revision and version numbering has been a key struggle that only staff training has been able to mark this as complete.

      Alternatives Considered

      Brightpod

      Brightpod was definitely the most attractive and we felt like it had the least amount of clutter. We hated how Wrike handled recurring tasks. ActiveCollab just seemed to have some complexity that we didn't need. The Brightpod developers are very responsive and were able to fix bugs quickly.

      The platform has great and responsive features, which are even quite simple to customize. The overall quality of the InEight services is the best on any Construction or Engineering projects. The InEight deployment is wide and available through many different environments and is a very effective tool for project financial transactions management.
