Overall Satisfaction with Changepoint

Changepoint is used by our company to track resources by project by hours billed to that project. In addition to tracking resource allocation by project, it is also used for expense reporting that gets billed to the customer, such as airline, rental car, hotel and per diem. It has been a very good tool to work with once you figure out the different bells and whistles it offers. The process flow for the tool is very efficient. Turn around time on time reporting and expense reporting is one week. Checks are auto deposited almost immediately.
  • It handles resource time reporting very efficiently.
  • It handles expense reporting in a very fluid manner.
  • Overall, easy to work with.
  • Changepoint will time out every now and then. You may not realize it, but your data entry has not been saved and then you close out of the application and come back in and your work is gone.
  • Changepoint will remember / store previous projects that have been billed to. Once the project closes, it still brings back the project so over time, your screen gets crowded.
  • Changepoint requires a VPN from remote locations which can pose a problem for frequent travelers. Few, if any, hotels offer a secure wifi and thus connecting to Changepoint can have its challenges
  • I am a PM, so I do not know, nor can I speak to ROI.
Changepoint was selected for its cost and what it can do. I was not involved in the decision to purchase Changepoint, but it appears to be a good decision.
Changepoint offers what a company needs. Project management at the resource level, time reporting and expense reporting. That is all our company uses it for, as I am sure there are other uses for the software. It works for what our company needs it to do. No issues to date at all.
