Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft Project Server

Considering what new versions of project server (especially project online) provides out of the box and its smoother integration with Office 365, I would highly recommend exploring option of project server 2013 (or online). End of the day, whatever complex tools you use; you will end up doing something in office applications :). And project online being in the same office ecosystem (Office 365, Office applications, SharePoint) helps. Microsoft is aligned with mobile first and cloud first approach and this will ensure that your project online system remains up-to-date without any additional cost.

Pros

  • Creates a single source of truth for all projects - All users interacting with the project can view the most recent copy.
  • Visibility - Project Managers are able to see all their projects at once, Managers/Admins are able to view all project information without having to open each project individually.
  • Customization - Easy to customize project attributes/fields.
  • Backup - If someone accidentally publishes something incorrectly, past publishes can be restored.

Cons

  • The online version can be a little faster (access time over the internet sometimes slow)
  • It needs to have its own MCTS track for certifications, i.e. Certified Project Technology Specialist
  • The ability to insert graphics into project plan online

Alternatives Considered

We tried few years ago to use Basecamp for our project management. Even though Basecamp is a much more easier to use tool with nice visualization and graphics, it didn't work out because the project managers are more use to the Excel way of doing things, which Project Professional and Project Server are doing.
