Top performance, saved time and money!

Pros

You can make your own detailed and specific report by being able to manipulate data as needed and receiving the information to be at our top performance. At the same time takes the weight of one's shoulder because it really does it all for you, saving me time and money while creating a perfect plan for my company.

Cons

To be honest nothing major I would say. At first, it seemed complicated because there's so much to it but after spending 30 minutes using the software I realized it was just me that had the impression because I was navigating like an expert after just a few minutes of browsing :)

A great one stop shop. I am able to be even more organized as a consultant.

Pros

I have a Master in Project Management, I apply all the Project Management principles to all my projects as a Management Consultant. I love most of all that at the clip of the mouse I can analyze the risks, cost and resource plan of my project....in addition, I can also see the progress of multiple projects. This software is a combination of all the PM software out there....inclusive of msprojects. I intend to use this software to do my work.

Cons

I need training from the developers themselves. To train the staff in Jamaica. That would be great for our company as we are a part of the government sector and we need tools like this software being used all over the country to assist Project Managers to run better projects in all public sectors in Jamaica.

I like that WorkOtter provides the ability to see the higher-level overview of projects/programs, resourcing, and financials - it's all integrated so you can see real time where things are.

WorkOtter has great dashboard views that you can easily drill down into to see specifics.
The Workflow is really helpful. It also integrates with MS project and other PM tools which is a plus.

WorkOtter allows me to manage projects but also plan and forecast - easy to do what/if's scenarios and to see how different scenarios impact resource planning.

I am both a manager and a project manager - I like that this tool allows me to see both the micro and macro view of where my projects and team are at any given time.

Cons

Not too much, I like it a lot. If I had to pick an issue it would be that it is dependent on the quality of that inputted data - but that is the case with any tool like this.

I can easily keep track of the tasks, issues and risks. It also makes budget allocation very easy. Instant sharing and cloud platform makes it a very easy, efficient and handy tool.

Pros

The thing I like most about WorkOtter is that it is cloud based and so it can be used collaboratively within a large group without any issue. And that enables real time update and tracking making it very efficient.
Tons of necessary features like interactive dashboard, gantt chart, PM features, forecasting, budgeting etc makes it a must have tool for project management.
The dashboards are tailored to type of user, customizable reports, instant sharing, automatic distribution are some of the most desired features.
Compatibility with excel and microsoft project is a big plus.
I am using it for about two years and really satisfied with it.

Cons

No notable cons, but aesthetically could be a little more attractive. But still does the job enough.

Very versatile and EASY program (at least that i have used in my experience as a PMP certified PM) to track like a road map your task on projects, sort, pivot, and filter tasks, engage and compare stages of your project. One thing i liked is the ability to play with "what if scenarios" and see how that affects cost, times, etc overall in your project. You have tons of great analytics to use, Gantt charts, Critical path, heatmaps, matrix, time bubbles... ohhh! and dont forget this can be Integrated/export/import with/from JIRA, Excel and Microsoft Project! All reports can be also emailed to users.

Some features might need updates as new updates are added/edited by Project Management Institute. Missing the updated software or new patches part.

Pros

WorkOtter makes the complex tasks of project management very systematic and easy to handle. The interactive visuals and reports have helped us analyze our day to day project progress and share it with the team members. The dashboards are tailored to individual user roles and hence it helps us keep our data secure and also makes it easier for our staff to access information that is relevant to their role. Our project team can easily track the project status and timeline without having to depend on each other for updates. I have used many project management tools but WorkOtter is very easy to get started and integrate with platforms like MS Project and Jira. I highly recommend WorkOtter for companies requiring project management, gantt chart analysis, and documentation storage.

Cons

They can add colors more appealing to look at.

Pros

I really love how simple the tool really is, with that I mean, if a have a new Junior PM or Project coordinator in the team, will be easy for that collegue to get into track very quicky, is not like other tools where you have to spend hours and hours in training. Next to that, the tool also provides with amaizing advanced PM features that allows me to have everything under control, create reports, update status, check changes and all that.
Another great part of the software is how interactive the reports are, as a Project Manager i am always looking to provide with information in the most simple way possible, WorkOtter allows me to do that but without leaving behind the visual and interactive side of it.
A project usually mean time and time will ALWAYS mean money, one of our favorite tools as PM in order to have time under control are the Gantt charts, WorkOtter offer me a great variaty of interactive features in order to make my charts more useful and correlative at the same time, is incredible the amount of information that you can get from a good structurated Gantt charts, thanks to this tool now I can provide the status to the folks almost everyday without spending hours updating the chart and the info.

Cons

I will like to been able to personalize the user guide interface of the software according to a specific project or company, this talking about branding and marketing. For example, when I am in a meeting been able to personalize the reports and tools

Pros

You'll find all sort of tools that promise to help you improve your productivity and a huge list of methods for tracking tasks. User-friendly. It's very affordable, especially for small teams.

Its simplicity, certainly it has captive my the team. They've all adopted this methodology immediately. Workotter allows us to collaborate daily in a virtual way in the joint projects, being able to assign different tasks, to know the state of its progress, to hold conversations, to give us constant feedback and finally to see those that have already been completed.

Cons

Should be available in different languages though. In addition, I think visuals and the board's structure should be improved.

Fully functional project management software that can be integrated with MS Project & Excel if needed.

Pros

I love that there are customizable, role specific dashboards. It means that everyone see exactly what they need to in order to get their job done.
The huge variety of report types to choose from, their interactiveness and the ease of automatically emailing them to team members is a huge time saver.
Overall, projects can be easily set up but as the project grows you will be able to take advantage of all the higher level features you expect in PM software.

Cons

For anyone who is not familiar with this type of program, there will be a slight learning curve but that is to be expected with any new software.

My job is easier.

Pros

It looks simple at your eyes but it has very advanced features that allow you to manage what really matters: issues, risks, changes and status reporting.

I can do really cool interactions since it shows me everything what's going on in my organization. Very interactive and visual software that allows me not only to see and arrange my projects but to build my own dashboards and share them with other people from my organization.

This is the kind of tool every manager requires. Not only it automates team collaboration but it can also be integrated with JIRA, Excel and Microsoft Project.

Cons

I liked every single aspect of this software. I think it meets the requirements that every manager needs to have in order to manage, control and share the company's projects.
