Likelihood to Recommend
Trimble
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.

TaskRay is a great solution for small to medium sized businesses running multiple projects at the same time. It is very cost effective and their development team is actively adding new functionality regularly. If you prefer working from a tiled Kanban board view, this is highly worth evaluating.

Pros
Trimble
  • Provide a document structure that is easy to navigate. All documents, even within a process, are stored in the document structure and easily accessed by those with the correct permissions.
  • Scheduling, especially with the new module is easy. It is helpful with a large organization where many hands touch projects to be able to forecast workloads (we have an in house engineering team who reviews all projects during their design phase)
  • Allows for easy interface with contractors and makes the submittal process more straightforward.

  • Onboarding Templates
  • Scheduling Onboarding tasks and assignments to client and employees
  • Creating project logs so that everyone knows what is being worked on

Cons
Trimble
  • The restrictions in formatting, and sorting of information rendered, in a way, affects the reporting output.
  • At certain times of day, e-Builder traffic causes the loading of filtered searches to take a while. This is probably common regardless of the site or software used.
  • More complicated reporting has some limitation, though the program is highly efficient in assisting with simple format reports.

  • Unfortunately TaskRay does not allow us to share templates externally with customers.
  • We have employees all over the world and we don't think TaskRay will support other languages such as Japanese. Note, I am speaking with a sales rep next week to confirm this, so we may be incorrect.

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

It's hands-down the best PM tool we have ever used. Nothing compares in ease of use and being easy to learn. It also looks great and makes sense immediately

Support Rating
Trimble
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.

Implementation Rating
Trimble
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

Again, just like the app, the implementation was very easy.

We have not compared other plans since the boss prefers this program from personal experience. But from using this program for 2 years I can see why we don't need to compare. Why fix something that isn't broken? It gets the job done, yes we might run into some issues but I feel like with all companies that can happen

We are still in our year long evaluation process. But TaskRay has been the easiest, and most successfully adopted tool so far. Even if we do not end up choosing TaskRay, I do not regret implementing the system or the experience working with the team at TaskRay. The only reason we may not end up going with TaskRay is lack of templates and slightly stunted reporting features (this is mainly due to Salesforce limitations). Our organization is growing so quickly, we need to consider tools that are better able to regiment processes in a larger group of Customer Service Representatives and give management more detailed insight into those activities.

  • It was highly effective in organizing projects and sprints.
  • Time cards were easy to manage.
  • TaskRay's integration with Salesforce is a huge win as well as you can leverage workflows, approval processes, and alert notifications.
