Improving our Scheduling Practices

PROS

SmartPM isn't just another scheduling software; it's a game-changer. Its intuitive interface makes creating and managing schedules a breeze. Whether you're a novice or a seasoned pro, SmartPM adapts to your expertise level, ensuring a seamless experience from start to finish. One of the standout features of SmartPM is its robust scheduling engine. With advanced algorithms at its core, SmartPM optimizes schedules for maximum efficiency, taking into account various constraints and dependencies. This means fewer delays, better resource utilization, and ultimately, happier stakeholders. But SmartPM doesn't stop there. Its collaborative capabilities are second to none. Team members can easily collaborate in real-time, share updates, and communicate. SmartPM keeps everyone on the same page, every step of the way. As someone who values data-driven decision-making, I appreciate SmartPM's analytics and reporting tools. With customizable dashboards and insightful reports, I can easily track progress, identify bottlenecks, and make informed decisions to keep projects on track. This has improved our overall health of the schedules on every project we currently have.

CONS

We use columns within Microsoft Projects to identify levels, towers, and buildings. Being able to see those within the software would be really helpful.

Streamlined Project Analytics

My colleagues at Satterfield & Pontikes and I find SmartPM to be an invaluable tool, enabling us to proactively identify key drivers at earlier stages than previously achievable. Its efficacy as a risk mitigation tool has been substantiated through practical application.

PROS

What I liked most about SmartPM was its ability to streamline project management processes with intuitive features which has empowered efficient decision-making and facilitated successful project outcomes.

CONS

One drawback I encountered with SmartPM pertains to the accuracy of its SPI calculation, particularly when the planned percentage completion reaches 100%. Additionally, the frequent appearance of pop-up notifications, disrupting discussions, detracts from the platform's usability. Lastly, the Gantt chart interface could benefit from refinement to match the user-friendly experience offered by Primavera's Gantt display.

Reason for choosing SmartPM

We chose SmartPM over alternative products because of its user-friendly interface, comprehensive features, and cost-effectiveness, providing a practical solution for our needs.

Reasons for switching to SmartPM

Acumen Fuse presents significant challenges in its usability, particularly in its initial setup phase, boasting an overwhelming array of buttons, switches, tabs, and menus, averaging around 70 per screen, which complicates navigation and increases the learning curve. Additionally, its installation process imposes a notable burden and expense on users, requiring significant investment of both time and resources. Moreover, its high cost further diminishes its accessibility and value proposition for potential users.
