Easy Projects is a project management tool designed for a wide range of businesses (small to mid-sized and enterprise level). It includes both basic features like creating projects and tasks and filling in the calendar, and also some advanced ones, including an interactive Gantt chart, an executive dashboard, time tracking and billing. It provides integration with MS Outlook, is customizable and has SaaS/On-Premise options.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/jb/Kd/VZMQ315HCMKZ.JPEGEasy Projects: It made our projects easier.We are using Easy Projects in our marketing office for project management purposes. We use it to track progress of jobs requiring graphic design work, and it serves as an archive for previous jobs. We open a job in Easy Projects and fill out customized fields to describe the job (size, envelope needed for mailing, design suggestions, delivery location) and upload any needed files (word document of text for the publication, photos/logos, etc.). We then assign users (graphic designers, print production coordinator, etc.) to the job and assign them tasks with end dates to complete. Day to day, we perform most of our work via the dashboard screen in Easy Projects, which gives you an overview of all the open tasks and who they are assigned to and the end dates. When jobs are completed, we then "close" them in the system. The great thing is that we can go back and search "closed" jobs. Since we've been using it for several years, we have a lot of history on repeat jobs.,Easy Projects is great for project management. It allows you to assign users, set tasks and end dates, and keep it all together in one working file/job. It's a project manager's dream -- you can look inside and see exactly what is going on and any missed deadlines. Easy Projects allows good customization of the fields. We have worked it so that in a job file, we can enter info about things specific to publication design -- size, file format, delivery location, etc. And we've been able to change these further over time as our needs change. Easy Projects allows for archiving of completed jobs. You don't have to see them every time you log in, but it's great to be able to go back and search through completed jobs (even several years back) to see what was done last time, who was assigning, costs, etc. Easy Projects allows you to pull reports and export them. This has proved helpful when we needed an overall log of jobs for a client or to pull a large number of costs.,Easy Projects has some problems when it comes to accessing the site via different methods/browsers. It is either very slow or never works on a tablet. It is not smart-phone friendly. And it stopped working for us in Firefox -- all we could use is Safari or Chrome (we are a Mac-based office). Easy Projects' email notifications are overwhelming. I turned them off completely since I was getting messages every time one little detail was added or changed. While the reports are great, they are somewhat hard to pull. It takes a lot of trial and error -- I would not say the reports are an "intuitive area." The biggest by far is what we fondly call "the screen of death." When you mark the last open task associated with a job as complete, a screen pops up that asks if you want to close the overall job, as well. The "yes" field is pre-selected, so if you are overzealous and click through quickly, it automatically closes the job. I don't know why they think this feature is helpful. We have so many staffers that complain they suddenly can't find their open job -- well, it's been marked completed and goes into the archive.,7,Better project coordination -- everything is all in one place and all team members can see/work off the same file. Better job archiving -- we can look back on recurring jobs and see what was done months (or even years) previously Helps us collect more info up front -- due to the fields project managers need to fill out, it steps us through the process of asking our clients all the right questions to make sure we have the info the design team needs Negative impact is that because it is so integral to our work processes, there is a "learning curve" for new employees when they start. So we do have to spend more time training them and ensuring they are doing things correctly in the system. Negative impact is that because of its lack of mobile and table-friendliness, if team members are out of the office, we can't use Easy Projects. We have to rely on email and sometimes, things can get missed that way.,HyperofficeEasyProjects is an ultimate project management solutionWe've implemented Easy Projects after having searched for a suitable project management software for our company for a while. We were quite pleased to see the number of features provided for the price, because Easy Projects was not just about time tracking and Gannt Charts. It also gave us a chance shift to cloud computing to explore its advantages (we used web storage). It was nice to find out about the great customer support, too - you are being guided through the whole implementation process, from the very beginning.The overall impression was that the guys at Easy Projects take away much of the burden off your shoulders by taking care of many issues thus optimizing the development process.,Easy Projects has all the basic features like task, time, budget, issue management, billing and invoicing. It also has a clear, customizable Dashboard with a Project Health chart, Resource Loading chart, Hours by Project chart, Estimated vs Actual Hours chart and widgets. It improves team collaboration with customizable real-time e-mail notifications and alerts, instant file sharing, message boards and due task reminders available. Low-priced monthly accounts can support unlimited projects.,Easy Projects can be quite difficult to learn to use, because it is an advanced and multifunctional tool. However, all paid accounts also include five free hours of training. You can’t create dependencies between projects, which may be quite inconvenient if you have more than one project.,9,Increased team collaboration improved the results significantly, because we managed to reduce the amount of time wasted on unnecessary iterations, therefore reducing costs. The reasonable pricing enabled us to enjoy the service we needed with with less impact on our budget than we've expected.,9

Day to day, we perform most of our work via the dashboard screen in Easy Projects, which gives you an overview of all the open tasks and who they are assigned to and the end dates.

When jobs are completed, we then "close" them in the system. The great thing is that we can go back and search "closed" jobs. Since we've been using it for several years, we have a lot of history on repeat jobs.

We have so many staffers that complain they suddenly can't find their open job -- well, it's been marked completed and goes into the archive.
I think as a project management software, Easy Projects is great. We used spreadsheets before, and that led to a whole mess of confusion. Easy Projects gets everything in one place online -- you can access it from anywhere with an Internet connection and everyone is working off the same files. This works well for us as a marketing/graphic design group. Our colleagues in web design use it, as well, I'm told with success. So I know those two scenarios will work with the Easy Projects system. If you are selecting project management software, definitely know what you need a system to do in its most basic form -- then see what additional elements appeal to you. One thing you may want to investigate during your evaluation of Easy Projects is server space. We host this program and its files on an internal server, so we have to be sure there is enough space to accommodate open jobs and archive files.

Easy Projects, apparently, suits small businesses and enterprises best. You should choose EP if you need a more complex tool for multiple projects.
