For organizations with 10+ employees, I think it is suitable. Smaller shops might find it overly complex.

  • ZilicusPM is great for an office regarding meetings and site visits. It's hard to keep track manually of where everyone is at. By sharing our calendars through ZilicusPM, we are able to access where someone is within a few seconds!! It is very convenient and less of a hassle.
  • This a great tool to use to manage all documents that enter in and out of our office for certain projects. It is hard to keep track of everything through our office, so this programs helps us manage things very efficiently.
  • This is great for prioritizing! I know many people in our office have an issue to do so. With the Project Issue Management feature, we are able to do this more effectively without causing any stress to our employees!

Cons

  • Training resources are still a work in progress.
  • As a software engineer, I'd like to see a more extensive API

  • The only thing I would suggest that needs room for improvement is that you should break down Zilicus PM into different sectors. What I mean by this is that you branch off this program into different areas of expertise like accounting, engineering, etc. Every business is managed differently, so other options should be provided to accommodate each field.
  • Other than that, I am very pleased with this program. It was WELL worth the investment. Saving a lot of time and money spent per worker by using this!

Connectwise was the 600 pound gorilla with lots of features, but it was also the titantic, too big to get out of its own way. We found it too complex to use and too archaic to integrate with. As powerful as it was, it was missing a few key features that a modern PSA like CloudBlue had as a matter of course. CloudBlue feels like the new generation, and so far it's only gotten better as they grow.

We have used Microsoft Project for years. We loved it until we found ZilicusPM. ZilicusPM is more efficient and directive in our field. Microsoft Project does not provide as many features as ZilicusPM does. I am extremely grateful for having found ZilicusPM. It was recommended to us by an architectural firm that swore by this software.

Return on Investment
Ingram Micro
  • It's allowed us to migrate away from home grown solutions to adhere to industry standards and better utilize our engineer's time.
  • Quoting new projects and hardware is easier to delegate and vastly more efficient than our previous methods.

  • A positive impact that ZilicusPM has made is we are able to work more efficiently and prioritize what needs to be sent out, what invoices need to be sent out to clients, where are project engineers at certain time of day, etc.
  • We also have a higher ROI. I am able to manage what invoices need to be sent out without having to track people down for a summary of the work , which is extremely time consuming. I am able to get more invoices out while returning a higher investment for the company.
  • A negative impact it has made is we had to hire someone to manage this software entirely. It is very time-consuming for myself to manage and make sure everything is entered in correctly. We hired someone who is familiar with ZilicusPM and is able to certify all work.
