Overall Satisfaction with WorkOtter

We primarily use WorkOtter to manage projects (create tasks, dependencies, adjust deadlines, and so on). However, we also use it to prioritize projects according to when people (resources) will be available, available budget, and management objectives. The software helps us all use the same processes so we know we are consistently reporting and making decisions. Ultimately, it helps us make sure we are spending time and budget on the right projects.
  • Users find it easy to use which is important if you have a large number of users who don't have time for a lot of training or when new hires come on-board.
  • WorkOtter has a lot of advanced features that we don't use but when we do need one, it is nice to know the feature is waiting for us. We have used several of these features for special projects.
  • It does a good job with resource management.
  • I can't think of anything major that is missing. I understand it was challenging to integrate it with our commercial banking application but I wasn't involved in that process.
  • I think it has really helped us make sure we are using resources effectively but I think it is hard to prove. Although we don't have hard ROI numbers, I believe the general feeling is that you really need a good PPM tool or will waste a lot of time and money.
  • It helps with communication since we have a standard process.
It is an internet-based product so it wouldn't work well in situations where the internet is not always available. However, it does allow you to use Microsoft Project so you could use that offline and sync it to WorkOtter later.
