  • Time Tracking

Overall Satisfaction

  • Branch Rescheduling: With defined timelines in the templates, it's somewhat easy to reschedule the branch/phase of a project
  • Time Tracking: It's easy to access each project within the time tracking module and track time to the master level.
  • Exports: It's nice to export project schedules to excel and share with clients.
  • If you are in need of a basic, straight-forward PM tool that you can use to create project schedules, this is too intricate. I typically export my schedules to excel and manage there.
  • If you need to be more granular with your time tracking, tracking time to individual tasks is cumbersome. The search engine does not render specific tasks, so you have to scroll and find manually.
  • The implementation process is cumbersome. You'll need a fully dedicated resource to learn the software and to ensure that it's implemented to fit your company's needs.
  • Unfortunately, this tool has not had a personal positive impact. My company did not think through their objectives before utilizing this tool, so we haven't been able to measure its success.
Overall, it's a good product for those who wish to manage products at a very detailed and intricate level. The implementation process needs to be improved so that objectives for usage are determined upfront, and the system is implemented around those objectives. If you are looking for a straight-forward project management tool that you can use for project scheduling, excel probably fits your needs.
The product has simply not been useful enough to me. I don't see myself recommending it for colleagues. This could be a result of poor implementation, and my company not thinking through their objectives for implementation. However, I prefer to manage using microsoft products.
