GenieBelt is a cloud-based construction and project management solution specializing in scheduling. It connects 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 receive notifications.

The solution'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.

A Review of GenieBelt.

GenieBelt is ideal for CM and basic scheduling pertaining to an array of different project uses. Overall we enjoy the idea that it helps to connect our users' home office to our main work sites and shared sites, making it easy to locate blueprint and plans and PDF files. It is also useful in our team based progress reporting goals.

Pros

We like that GenieBelt enables our employees working remotely, to function on close levels with corporate help. As far as construction management software, it is top notch. Multiple dashboard features and a cloud based storage platform make for a sleek and efficient module. We also appreciate the mobile reporting aspects and picture uploading tools.

Cons

We enjoy GenieBelt overall for our project management and scheduling needs. If there was one thing we like the least about this software, it might be that if some sort of document control platform were added, we could monitor work-performance with additional ease.

Cons

Each business has its own characteristics and features, you might want to check another web-solution for project management. shortcomings is the non-linearity in their package pricing.

I am using this app since 2016. its amazing for us.

No documentation work is required after completion of project. This app automatically makes a complete documentation work for your project,

Pros

real time pics uploading. budget monitoring. task management and specially one thing that make this software is you can run it without internet on field.

Cons

the function of drill down is best but it should be available in every package, because we are are missing it in our existing package.

Looks like a million dollars!

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.

Won't stop hassling

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.

Easy to use

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

Simple, productive

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.

I think this product was well worth the money spent

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.

Easy to set up, great overview with the Gantt chart

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).

Great Format

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.

Team project helper

Geniebelt helped our sloppy teammates get reminded of the due dates and tasks. It's pretty simple and their customer service is awesome; they respond back quickly.
