Overall Satisfaction with ConceptDraw PROJECT

We don't need to do a lot of formal project plans in our business, but when we do ConceptDraw PROJECT is a great economical way to put together a professional looking project. It has all the project tracking essentials: the Gantt chart, resource/budget tracking, the ability to combine multiple projects, and a reasonable number of reports. The interface is easy to use with a mouse, but the keyboard shortcuts take some getting used to (ctrl-rightarrow to indent a task?). It doesn't have the more advanced calculations for project time estimates that can be found in MS Project, but it can both open and export in the MS Project format as well as Excel and PDF so sharing with customers is easy even if they don't have the ConceptDraw suite. Overall this is a great product for the price and exactly what we need for putting together a few formal projects each year.
  • Clear, intuitive interface
  • Multiple industry standard export types
  • Non-intuitive keyboard shortcuts
  • No advanced reporting or estimates
  • Inexpensive way to present a professional project plan when needed
MS Project has far more features and functionality, but ConceptDraw PROJECT has the features we need at a price-point that is far easier to handle for a small business.
Customer service from the ConceptDraw sales team is relatively quick and they do a good job of answering basic questions. However, the user base for ConceptDraw products is not huge so finding answers online for anything beyond basic help-file questions is difficult.
