Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature is the Auto resource leveling tool because it shows students that often, expert resources get over-scheduled, and that dealing with the issue by just using the auto-resource leveling tool would have a large impact on the delivery date.The most valuable features of this solution are dependency management, milestone progress, multiple resource rates, and RAG views.Dependencies (not typically effectively used in "Agile" techniques) allow understanding of actual project status and challenges.The project tracking, resource utilization and the cost are the most beneficial aspects of this solution.I find the planning features the most valuable to me.They have begun to improve with the new cloud integration.It's most useful feature is that it interfaces with Project Server so we can, from my perspective, from a portfolio perspective, we can see across the organization.

Cons
I would like to have more access to templates and tools that could be used to teach project management best practices.I would like to see the inclusion of multi-currency support.This solution needs more templates focused on types of projects to ease setup.There have been some drawbacks with customization. Some users want it to be an automation tool.I find that MS Project has limited control in comparison to other solutions in the same sphere.There needs to be better integration with other Microsoft products such as SharePoint, and the like.Tech support needs improvement.The scalability is co-dependent on the stability of the product. We have 4000 users, and at times the product is slow.
