Overall Satisfaction

Tenrox is used across our organization to monitor project activity against budgets, to meet our resource planning needs, and to track timesheets and expenses.
  • You can create a report combining virtually any field that the application tracks, so in this way it's a very flexible tool. There are also very flexible workflows and security settings within the app so that you can really make it fit your organizational structure, whatever that may be.
  • You can download the report into Excel and work with the data in Pivot tables to get even more customized reports.
  • The upgrades have been particularly frustrating. We have often lost useful functionality as a result of the software being upgraded, and have experienced some dissatisfaction around the communication about exactly what features are being changed/added/removed.
  • Especially in the beginning there were lots of bugs in the application. Many of these bugs have been worked out in upgraded versions but some still remain.
  • More transparency around resource planning and financial management of projects
We have a lot of time invested in the set up of our Tenrox report system.
Key questions to ask during the selection process: how often will you be running reports in Tenrox (daily, weekly, monthly?) and which of the reporting tools (OLAP or AdHoc) would meet your report needs? In our experience - OLAP is more flexible but takes more time to run a report. If you use AdHoc you can't combine as many fields into one report but the reports run more quickly.
