ConceptDraw PROJECT

Getting started - using the Gantt chart to enter tasks in any order and then using those tasks to initially define a MindMap to further explore alternative dependencies. The alternative works better when initiating a project with significant unknowns.

Well suited for the owner's side of managing multiple projects as it allows for all aspects of a project from development to closeout to be managed on one platform. Not as appropriate for a general contractor as there is better software out there. e-Builder's app is not as effective as others.

Pros

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Integration with ConceptDraw Mindmap makes work breakdown very easy.
  • We have cross-functional teams where team members often work on different projects in parallel. The multi project management feature has been a blessing over these years.
  • Another import feature is the availability of many different predefined report generation templates that made it very easy to communicate different aspects of the project to different stakeholders.

  • Easy organization once it is set up in the system correctly.
  • On time notifications of updates or changes.
  • Fast submission of invoices for processing. Usually notifies the appropriate personnel shortly after I submit it. Payment is prompt.

Cons

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Non-intuitive keyboard shortcuts
  • No advanced reporting or estimates

  • We have MS Project 2016 and it doesn't interface with the new schedule module.
  • We have multiple layers of submittal approvals. Additional functionality to reflect how submittals are reviewed would be great.
  • The new schedule module Save button is in a location that is not intuitive to look for. If it could auto save or not be all the way on the upper right hand side, it would be easier to use.

Because again, one of our biggest clients entrusts E-builder to work with their systems. And its functions work for us as well.

Again, because our technical support is great. He doesn't always answer the phone but he definitely responds to emails fairly quickly. In addition, I like that he actually resolves an issue and I have yet to encounter the same issue twice. Actually, I haven't encountered many issues at all in the two years I have used the software.

1. Set up the time to get training on the sytem before you go all in.
2. Listen, ask questions and actually practice using the tools and features while in class. It helps tremendously with becoming comfortable and remembering how things work.
3. Don't be afraid to mess up. They are helpful and will help resolve your issue in a timely manner

Alternatives Considered

ConceptDraw PROJECT

ConceptDraw has a much simpler licensing and pricing model. Perpetual license and ability to use in offline mode was an important criteria for us. Perfect bundle for small and medium business.

EB is user friendly and stacks up very high, compared to the others.
