GenieBelt Software


 

GenieBelt is a cloud-based construction and project management software solution specializing in scheduling. It is suitable for small to medium-sized businesses.

GenieBelt’s goal is to connect users’ home office to work sites so they can issue and find drawings, share project documents with teams and get progress reports. This system includes a dashboard where users can see all their projects at once, and where they receive notifications.

The software's document management module allows users to store all their documents in one place, and they can invite clients and partners to view certain documents. Those invited will receive a file containing all of the relevant documents.

GenieBelt creates audit trails for each document in the system, so users can see when documents are edited and who edited them. They can either accept or reject changes, as well as check off completed tasks. This solution also has a task list, a drawing database and a project directory that allows users to see who is on the team for each project.

GenieBelt is priced per project per month. Mobile apps are available for Android and iOS.

The staff at Geniebelt has worked closely with our team to ensure we are well trained and we get the most out of the application. The product itself is the first of its kind that lets our ground teams work closely with the office, updating status, planning and issues. It has saved our company thousands and is well worth trying if you want to improve your current processes particularly when it comes to an easy to implement, follow and update PM system.

Likes Least

There is nothing in particular any shortcomings the team has quickly taken into account and factored into future versions.

Recommendations

Take the time to think about your current processes and what you want out of the software as this will help getting the full benefit out of the application and ensure implementation is not only easy but people adopt and use the application from your team.

I think GenieBelt has an awesome thing going on! What I'm missing in the Project management tool is the ability to document the quality of my work.

Pros

Smooth design, informative layout and very intuitive use.

Cons

A control system to document quality of performer work, is missing.

I was invited to a Genie belt project by a client who wanted us to report on his project using this software. The software worked ok but is a bit basic compared to Microsoft project that we normally use and doesn't have the same level of functionality or Microsoft office functionality. Since the project has finished and I have no need to use Geniebelt anymore I am getting constant spam emails from them about user experience etc. I have unsubscribed from the emails but they keep contacting me. In short if you want a cheap and basic solution and you never intend to stop using it then this is highly recommended.

Geniebelt has an easy to use interface and easy to set up with classmates. Excellent for group work and general weekly tasks.

Pros

The display and how it gives an easy overview of the tasks and how close they are to completion.

Cons

It can be a bit difficult to set up, but it's easy enough when you get to know it

Advice to Others

It's not just great for projects, but also planning one's daily tasks. Great way of structuring one's week.

It's really good. In my opinion it added a bit more work to viewing attachments and a status of approval

Pros

It's easy to use and functional

Cons

limit of attachment

Advice to Others

I would like it to be a bit more versatile, that is to say, it is very focused on the field of construction when it can be very useful in other similar ones.

I have used the Geniebelt at group work at the school with a good success, everybody were informed about what was happening and good and simple overview of the process and the fact that we could just check out the task on the phone instead of opening a program that is saved on a file on a certain place.

Pros

Simple and user-friendly, with a good and simple overview. And everybody of the group is informed all the time about what is happening and if there are some changes in the plan.

Cons

A bit hard to set up and can sometimes be hard to manage, fx the sites is sometimes slow and difficult and time consuming to plan the project in the beginning.

Advice to Others

For us the comment section. Can be really useful and informative for the group.

I love the fact that I can get updated on the spot with projects and project managers. Live progress from the site is one of the greatest features. I also use this a sales tool when selling jobs. I can show clients the app and show them my progress on my current projects. Great tool

Pros

Job progress updates

Cons

The fact that I need service to use.

As a tech company, we needed a project management tool. We were aware that GenieBelt is primarily for physical infrastructure building purposes; but we decided to give it a shot, given its good initial impression.

We have now moved on to a different tool (but still haven't settled), as we felt that a few key things were perhaps too specifically intended for physical infrastructure projects. We do miss the Gantt chart: it gave us the best overview we've ever had, along with easy interaction. Good UX too.

Given its ease of setup, do try it out and see if it ends up being a good fit.

Pros

Gantt chart, great UX.

Cons

Too specifically designed for building purposes for us (a tech company).

Advice to Others

Given its ease of setup, it is virtually risk free to try out.

I used my trial subscription for a Project that we eventually did not get to do. However, I was evaluating several different PM software programs and Genie Belt was at the top of my list. I really like the format and the drill down feature.We are in the structured cabling industry so we work on many construction sites. I am impressed with the feature set but was not able to use it like I would have liked. The one thing I would have liked is some more templates. I am a PMP and therefore am partial to the PMI standards. So a PMI standard basic template set would be nice. I know we could use the document management but I like the integrated templates that some offer. I also very much like the Android App. I think the app had more features than other apps. I also like the access to the documents and the Task tracking of problems. I am looking forward to our next opportunity to use this service.

Pros

The Mobile App and the features. I also like the drill down feature. The Dashboard is set up nice and the quick access to the budget is great.

Cons

I would like to see it more PMI friendly and more templates.

Advice to Others

I would like to see a customer portal for project updates and the ability to customize the Dashboard or overview page.

Had a good experience, was using the program with work and managed to plan the project I was on effectively and with relative ease.

Pros

It's intuitive menus and setup

Some features are hard to find, the app doesn't work as well as the desktop
