How has it helped my organization?

After implementing this product, the biggest improvement was with timesheet compliance with company rules, because resources had to write their allocation and time spent on each project, along with tasks across many projects. In addition,... more»

What needs improvement?

What is most valuable?

The key things are * managing interactions * resource allocation * resource-leveling, enterprise and as a collaborative tool, because we use it across multiple projects at a time.

How has it helped my organization?
