Project Insight is a project, portfolio and resource management solution developed specifically for the mid-market.
Project Insight is a collaborative solution that gives teams a way to manage projects from a single location, monitor resources, share documents and view tasks and gain access to real-time reporting. Built on the Microsoft .NET framework, Project Insight can be installed on-premise or in the cloud and can be integrated with other enterprise applications with APIs and an SDK.
Project Insight includes all the tools an organization needs to successfully manage their projects. In addition to project scheduling, the solution also offers resource management, time and expense tracking, project budgeting and costing, document and knowledge management and collaboration, as well as customizable reporting and executive dashboards.
If the office uses Microsoft Outlook or Office, MS Outlook Connect seamlessly integrates these applications with Project Insight, allowing users to upload emails, tasks and documents directly into the solution.

Easy to use PM software that allows getting sufficient details about the project in order to help you manage it better.
I would not recommend it as a financial tool, but it is possible to export details in QuickBooks and I believe other financial application which makes it a great addition to your organization if you require a more in-depth project management application.
it is a user-friendly interface, easy to implement and easy to learn. can be integrated with other applications like QuickBooks, salesforce and a few others.
all reports are easily customizable and you can always change the default as you deem appropriate.
in terms of price is it probably in the mid range so it is suitable for established small to mid size organization.
training and support are easy to get online.
some naming conventions are not necessarily obvious, which takes the time to get used to, especially when creating reports.
not suitable for a financial application, so do not expect to do all your accounting in the projectinsight, it does however offer integration with other apps such as QuickBooks etc.
do your research, there are lots of applications out. Make sure that all parties involved are represented in the decision making group it will make it easier to implement it. make sure your are clear on expectations, requirements for the application but also make sure that internally everyone understands the responsibilities that come with implementation of a new system and implications of maintaining one.
Cost is not always a factor in the quality of the product you buy so do go through trials, provide valid and sufficient scenarios for vendors that they can use during the memo presentations.

This product provides what we need as it relates to budget management of projects, dashboards, resource allocation and the ability to schedule.
We are able to view projects from all of the agencies and determine how quickly we might be able to entertain a new project.
Ease of use -- graphical interface is easy and intuitive

It had great potential to integrate with other existing products our business was running, and created excellent, granular reports
Unfortunately the price was put of our range, and was a little too expensive considering we weren't in a position at the time, to fully utilise every aspect of the product
Ensure you have a decent budget approved before going ahead
John-Paul from Abritas Limited
As a software development house implementing of own software solution we needed a quality product which could be configured to our own processes and replace MS project and an existing timesheet application. Project Insight provided an alternative integrated solution which was quick to deploy and adopt company wide.
Project Insight enables our project managers to quickly create plans from templates in order to monitor the progress of tasks and ensure project performance is maintained throughout. With Project Insight our projects follow standard implementation processes thus providing consistently and enabling teams visibility of progress and commercial performance in real-time.
The visibility that Project Insight provides our management teams has enabled us to address issues earlier, fine tune processes and work to improve the accuracy of project forecasting whilst ensuring that the project programme remains under complete control.
On the few occasions we have needed support the team at Project Insight have been responsive and they continue to provide us with an excellent level of customer service through regular account management calls.

This tool enhanced the way we tackle projects and gave us a better visibility the total hours associated to each project. We are very pleased with the ease of use and the team providing support.
Nishi from Resource Development Associates
PI has helped increase efficiency and transparency in our business. While it may not always be intuitive, the customer service is incredible and have always helped us figured out how to get what we need. There are a lot of features that we haven't even touched yet. The reporting capability is especially useful.
Jim from Axia
I find PI very easy to use and use and customize. I quite often create numerous "custom fields/items" for a project and use these, in conjunction with "custom reports" to manage my project. I also find the support team very responsive to questions and/or problems (which are few and far between).
Keep up the great work!
Thomas from Ulster County (NY Information Services
Handles the basics of project management well - project creation, task plans (if you're familiar with MS Project this will come easily), resource planning and tracking, project status reporting, etc. It is used by the development team of the IT department for all PM, including the tracking of all hours. Entire team brought up to speed very quickly on the use of PI. Permissions are a bit tricky so pay close attention to this in the training. I recommend the software to all size organizations.
Patti from Cardiff Consulting, LLC
PI is a full bodied product with many layers of customization already built in. The team in California is both knowledgeable about the product and a pleasure to work with. I'd totally recommend this software to someone looking to understand where their efforts and money are going month to month.
Natalie from Avaya
I was first introduced to the Project Insight, Program Management Tool, when I was asked to deploy the tool for the Avaya Corporation in 2013. Avaya is a global company with Project and Program Managers worldwide supporting ¿Global Complex Managed Services¿.
I was asked to deploy the Project Insight, Management Tool worldwide in 45 days. I had never deployed a Program Management Tool and this was a very aggressive schedule. We deployed the tool on 5/31/13 and it was a successful deployment due to the flexibility of the tool and the support from the Project Insight team.
The tool is very flexible and the reporting capabilities are strong for operational views, which is our main use for the tool. The tool is very easy to implement as I had never implemented this type of a tool before and my main focus in the past was Program Management not tool deployment.
As I mentioned above, due to the flexibility, ease of use with the tool and the support I received from the Project Insight Team with such supportive folks as Wes Kliewer and his knowledge of the tool and the collaboration from Wes contributed to the successful deployment of the tool. Today the Project Insight tool continues to grow across organization within Avaya.
The high level of customer support is what you do not see often these days, especially after you have purchased and deployed a tool. It is very obvious the continued customer support and customer focus you receive from all of the Project Insight team, this is a very high priority with them.
Thank you all, Project Insight Team!!! We did it together!!!
