Celoxis is simple to use yet a very powerful tool for tracking projects of all types. The flexibility lies in creating custom fields to exactly measure our management KPIs and dynamic report filters to slice and dice data as needed. Celoxis also comes with several built-in reports that accommodate almost 85% of our needs. We also created our own specific reports for specific tracking requirements.
For our teams, they can see their outstanding tasks, raise inventory requests, log time, file issues and manage to dos all from a single web interface.
We managed to get our lead times down by 18-23% and also improved cycle time and overall process efficiency.

Nothing really. So far our team and management is completely satisfied with the product and the benefits we have got from it.

Recommendations

I’d recommend Celoxis to project managers who want an affordable project management tool that isn’t over-engineered and want your teams to stick to it.

What I like best about Celoxis is its flexibility in reporting. The reporting is so robust that it lets me create all sorts of complex portfolio and resource reports even on my business fields. It also has a clean interface and is very simple to learn. Celoxis is an excellent tool for time tracking, especially the weekly time sheets and the one-click approve feature. Resource management tools are also comprehensive in helping us track down resources with right skills, their availability and utilization.

Setting up security can often be challenging, especially with multiple roles and work spaces. To ease that out, Celoxis does provide a complimentary 1 hour session on Administration and Security best practices to its new customers. I’d encourage everybody to sign up for this. It really smooths out your new software deployment process.
Best practices, quick how-to's and product usage tips are missing. It would be worthwhile to include these in their Help center.

Recommendations

My recommendation to those looking for a project management tool is that Celoxis is good. In fact it’s the best in my opinion. However definitely use the trial period that is offered to you and watch as many of their video tutorials to make sure it works for you and your business!

Our main reason for selecting Celoxis can be attributed to its intuitive and user-friendly interface along with powerful reporting capabilities providing us visibility into complex portfolios, resources, risks and issues. The tool is highly customizable to individual requirements. The management dashboards are simply fantastic and help our executives make accurate decisions.

Likes Least

One thing that could be improved is their mobile platform, which currently does not allow expense tracking. This is something we would really welcome seeing in the product.

Recommendations

I would recommend using the trial version to the fullest extent and add all kinds of projects to test it out.

Celoxis saves us a ton of time. It gives us an easy way to report information and helps us make better decisions about the projects and their budgets. Prior to using Celoxis, our reporting was a manual and time-consuming process. Reporting required our managers to explicitly reach out to team members and other stakeholders, gather information, then document it. There was no timely communication and we’ve had to always scramble to meet our ‘go-live’ schedules. Now that everything is standardized and real-time, our managers are easily on top of open issues and can see when projects risk slippage. We can create KPI reports and dashboards for our management to keep them up to-date on the progress.

Their salesperson was a little slow to respond initially, but he was able to help me with a demo of the product and answer some of my initial queries about pricing and licensing. I felt the initial connect for a vendor was somehow missing, but with a fantastic tool that helped us achieve where we are today, I am certainly willing to discount that part for now.

Recommendations

They offer a free 1 hour session on payment. This session conducted by their product experts gives you great insights into admin and security settings for your account. Make sure you avail that offer! It'll save you a lot of initial effort otherwise.

Celoxis allows us to capture even the minutest details about our projects, resources and other processes and effectively report them. The dashboards are completely customizable and I can add all my reports there. More often than not I don't even have to leave my dashboard - its all there - all my KPIs, projects' health indicators, cost overruns, lead times, identify free resources, track utilization and resource efficiency.

Setting up security is challenging. This is expected from a comprehensive tool that lets you setup multiple workspaces and roles. Their user manual should also be improved.

Recommendations

Celoxis has worked wonders for us. It is very flexible and could be easily molded to suit our requirements. No one tool will work 100% for anyone, so make sure you prioritize your requirements and test them thoroughly with the tool before you take a call.

My company has recently started to take off and we are now managing multiple projects and portfolios simultaneously, and with the rapid growth it has been a challenge to keep everything organized. I decided to ditch my age-old time keeping tool and started using Celoxis and I couldn't be happier! The resource utilization and capacity planning features have made it feature has made it incredibly easy to make smarter resourcing decisions across all of our projects. I also love the fantastic visibility of this platform which allows me to spot potential labor and revenue issues that before would have gone unnoticed. Celoxis is incredibly user friendly, and if for some reason you ever run into trouble, there is amazing customer support that will help you through anything you need.

Integration could be stronger for calendar and events. Currently I can only export my events to Outlook.

Recommendations

Celoxis has a very easy to understand licensing and pricing structure unlike the other products we evaluated.
Make sure you have a checklist of your requirements and do sign up for their one-on-one demo.

I have a mid-sized business, and I needed an all-in-one project management software to keep up with our increasing project pipeline. . We are going through some major projects right now, and we really needed some help keeping everything in order and flowing as it should be. Celoxis worked perfectly for us! It is easy to use, and now all our projects information is all in one place, all our tasks are well-organized, and everything is going wonderfully! It even gave us a great, realistic project schedule so we know when exactly to have each step completed by to stay track and contain costs. It's been over 8 months that we are using Celoxis and I'm glad to have made the right decision!
