How has it helped my organization?We have implemented four domains like telecom, construction, banking, insurance, health sector and pharmaceuticals. We have worked, to some extent, in each of these domains. Of course the customization, configuration and implementation… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The standard diversion of Project Online or Microsoft Project, is that it automatically has so many built in features that you really do not need to invest much in terms of trying to configure it to suit your requirements. It has all the… more »
What other advice do I have?The only drawbacks are the customization. Generally what happens is everybody wants it to be an automation tool, and this is not the use case for this solution. It is a platform for project management. You don't want an automation to be in… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?There are some serious competitors in this sector. For instance, there is Clarity from CA, Planview and HP PPM. These are some of the other competitors that you have on the market. I think the Microsoft products are very user friendly, the… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I am not involved with this.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I have had experience using Primavera and Open Plan Professional previously. I personally find Project Professional to provide the same functionality from logic and scheduling perspective.
What other advice do I have?My suggestion is to do homework and compare what other products are out there and how well they will fit with your organisation. This one's okay. I've personally used a range of different products, all potentially good choices, it just… more »

What is most valuable?The running time on the user interface is very good. We love, in general, the usability and the user interface. It's quite intuitive and easy to use. The pricing is pretty good on the enterprise agreement we have.
What needs improvement?I can't think of any features that are lacking. I don't know of any issues with the solution that can be updated. The technical support could be improved. They are okay, however, they could be much better.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The pricing is pretty good. We don't have any complaints with regards to the cost of the solution. It's not overly expensive in comparison to others.
What other advice do I have?I would recommend the solution to other companies. It's worked fairly well for us overall and we've been satisfied with the experience we've had using it. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. There are still some items that could be better. It's not a perfect solution, although it's pretty good.

What do you think of Microsoft Project?
What is our primary use case?They have moved from a paper to a project management tool. That's the big change. Earlier, they were using papers and then they started using Project Professional to run their project server, it's a huge change and a huge transition.
What needs improvement?I think they've begun to improve with the new cloud integration. Previously, this was an issue. Now, I don't think there are any further changes that need to be done for the cloud issue. There needs to be better integration between SharePoint and other Microsoft platforms and this solution. Furthermore, there should be a better integration with the use of the cloud and mobile devices.
For how long have I used the solution?One to three years.

What is most valuable?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 critical path analysis reporting and tools are helpful because they show students the importance of understanding which tasks are on… more »

What needs improvement?I would like to have more access to templates and tools that could be used to teach project management best practices.
