I am professional services consultant managing 15-25 projects at a time and contributing on 10-15 tasks for other colleagues per week. I find Celoxis an easy tool to manage my tasks and workflow. The dashboards are great and I like the ease of time entry as compared to Salesforce.

Pros

Because all consultants use Celoxis it has become a great resource for information. You can quickly search for documents, projects, status updates. You can also quickly see a dashboard of your projects status and deliverables.

Cons

The Time entry filter size has created a problem for us, I'd like to see this increased.

Advice to Others

Give Celoxis a try. The tool is great and ever evolving.

Our software development shop switched to Celoxis a few years ago and haven't looked back. It's ease of use for time entry has proven to make for much more accurate and timely time entries, and the project/time/task/resource reporting features are top notch. As a project manager, I used to spend hours and hours trying to get various views of project data, and Celoxis makes that much easier. Another feature that I feel sets it apart from other platforms, is the ability for me to create my own personal Dashboard where I can customize it to show the views and tasks that are important to me.

I'm a project engineer at a contract engineering company and Celoxis has really opened my eyes to what is possible with regards to inter-facility coordination and top-down management of timelines, hours tracking, and overall program/project management. With all the new updates, it is just as good as MS Project in it's ability to create and manage a timeline and has hundreds of modules that put it above and beyond. I highly recommend this product.

We have recently acquired Celoxis for our business and have been using it throughout our organization. I specifically use it to log time against spent against project milestones, and it helps me keep track of where I am at various project milestones. What I like about Celoxis is the user-friendliness and clean layout. I also especially like using the times function against tasks as then I can just get on with my task without having to worry about keeping an eye on the clock to time myself. so all in all, most definitely software worth investing in.

Pros

User-friendliness

Cons

I haven't found anything yet that I dislike.

Advice to Others

Make sure that there is equal commitment between the project manager and the user to make the platform work for you, and keep communicating around the logged tasks.

Celoxis is a great product that I use every day for hours per day. We use it to track our projects, time and internal requests, so it is thoroughly vetted and capable. There are a lot of options available which can be confusing for a new user, but once you get the feel for everything, it is quite simple. I value this product and look forward to new updates.

We've been using Celoxis for quite a few years now. The software has grown tremendously in that stretch - the team continues to introduce straightforward and useful features. Celoxis helps my team keep our projects organized and helps our company track the metrics we need to keep an eye on. Beyond that, the customer support team is very responsive and I've never had a bad experience with them when I've had a question or technical issue.

I have been using Celoxis for around 4 months now in my new job as a project manager. I was very pleased with the features and functionality it provided. I like the interactive gantt chart and i find it really good for financial reporting. My only gripe is the update recently moved a lot of the menu's around and I don't think they are easy to find now. I would have appreciated a bit of a tour around the new look celoxis to help me learn to use it.

Pros

Interactive Gantt, progress percentage.

Cons

hidden menus, and to change staff's working days to holidays (non working day) is a time consuming one by one process and with 50+ staff it could be made a lot easier

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.

Likes Least

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.

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!
