What is most valuable?

I think the division between the onsite work on the cloud of Microsoft Office is something valuable. It is used for consulting assignments. I think that people are more used to the Microsoft inner-workings. They use Excel, and the other… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It improves the managing function with this product.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing was procured before my involvement.

What other advice do I have?

I think this solution is a more scalable, so people now will start believing that Microsoft can also be used. The comfort of using Microsoft products, which is likely for most of the clients, is that they use Microsoft Office as their… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I know that there are other solutions in this realm. Gmail is one that others are using right now. They are the main competitor. People are still have the view that not many of these run through Microsoft project. A lot of these will be… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution's ease of use is its most valuable aspect. The initial setup is straightforward. The solution is very affordable.

What needs improvement?

For the way we use the solution, it's fine. I can't think of anything specifically that I'd like to have improved now. It would be useful if the solution allowed us to share files or project schedules. You may get that with the cloud… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We're Microsoft customers. We don't have a business relationship with the company. The solution is only a single cost per seat. There isn't a monthly or yearly subscription. It's only a few hundred dollars. It's pretty inexpensive. There… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. It's such a good product for running the modules. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten due to the fact that it does have some limitations. Otherwise, it's perfect.

What is most valuable?

The working blocks within the solution are excellent. I can follow four or five projects and see the dealine of items in the calendar. We can understand the amount of work - if it's full or not - and… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us good visibility into the amount of work needed for each person and how to delegate it appropriately.

What needs improvement?

I'd like it if we could divide out the project calendars. On one project server, we might follow five projects or more at one time, and we'd like to see all of the items at once so that it becomes a… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing of the solution is reasonable. It's not outrageously expensive. Our finance department handles the billing, therefore, I'm unsure as to if we pay monthly or yearly and what the overall… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did previously use a different solution, however, it was only for about a month.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're currently using. I use the solution to follow my company's projects. I'd recommend this solution. It's excellent for planning. I'd… more »

How has it helped my organization?

One source of truth for project metrics, management, and financial reporting. Through additional dashboards and reports, we have developed a way we can distribute project… more »

What needs improvement?

OOB reporting is not very robust. We have utilized SSRS, Excel Services and Qlik Sense to expand the OOB reporting capabilities. We use a hosted on-premise version so that… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Engage an experienced and highly rated vendor to help in the discovery and planning of the implementation. Project Server is better priced than many of the higher-end… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

MS Project standalone version and SharePoint repositories were our previous solutions.

What other advice do I have?

Training for the userbase is a primary concern. Make sure there is a great training plan in place to ensure the userbase can be productive very early in the process.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.

What is most valuable?

The Resource Manager feature is a good. It is very direct and keeps track of the resource usage. Also, Project Server gives you the whole idea of the project size. It is mainly used for looking up a project that you want to get the total view of the entirety of the project.

How has it helped my organization?

It enables us to view all of our projects, and that is really great. We can see how we are doing right now. It improved the resource management of the organization.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It may be considered expensive, but it has features that cannot be bought by other rivals, so cost does not matter.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have previous experience with Algera.
