Cammsproject, UK public sector user.

Cammsproject requires a certain amount of user effort in order to get the most out of the tool but, once mastered, has the ability to facilitate the management of the most complex programmes and, combined with Camms' other products, integrate this management into one's overall business strategy and risk management programmes.

Pros

The software is very versatile and can be configured to suit any user requirements.

Cons

The User Guide is less than adequate particularly with respect to the project plan.
There are still some bugs in the system which need to be addressed.

not great

Pros

The sales-pitch showed much of the project flow and capability, however the implementation was painful and features we expected to work well did not (finance pages)

Cons

the uploading of documents is clunky and people dont use it so the value of the solution is not as useful as hoped

It is also bloody slow, painfully slow and we will be looking to replace this with an onsite solution

It has all of the main items that you need to successfully manage any project

A systematic and standardized approach to managing projects across the organization and quickly and easily get projects off the ground without compromising on quality.

Pros

Completeness of the solutions it provided end to end including project objective to execution and GUI is also very friendly.

Cons

Nothing much, it satisfies all our requirements. It cannot support double byte character as it need to deploy across the region.

Very helpful software that we need to manage things more efficient especially the risk.

Pros

cammsproject is very flexible software with many features and benefits. We especially like the fact that the software is easy to use and accessible via our mobile devices helping us to manage our different project teams on the go

Cons

we have found the cammsproject software to be very user friendly and are yet to experience any disadvantages of using it. We will continue to observe the functions and features of the software and report any areas for enhancement.

Great direction in aligning project to preferred methodology, corporate objectives, budget & risk

Web based tool that provides ability to plan projects, resources and activities to meet corporate objectives and improve service delivery. Central repository for ALL projects irrespective of type or dollar value Connected business units typically operating/planning and managing in silos into a single hub to manage projects across operations with internal and external parties. Provided complete visibility, accountability and control of projects. Provided an assessment framework for ease of decision making Was set up to align with prince 2 project methodology, tailored for a fast turnaround on decision making and throughput and based on CAMMS project management experience and the readiness of the business to formalise their project management practice. Improved the ability to manage budgeting process through 10 year Corporate Strategic Planning cycle. Improved the ability to identify and manage risks In a nutshell enabled the business to MANAGE projects within a clearly defined and structured project management framework.

Pros

I like the software because:
- it is web based and accessible anywhere, anytime which overcame existing issues with access to server based software within a merging council (put everyone on the same page)
- with CAMMS wealth of experience in corporate strategic planning frameworks it was easy to configure the software to align with corporate themes, objectives and strategies for each project and to time line each project for budgeting consideration when preparing the operations plan/budget for year 1 - 10.
- it was easy to decentralise the administration controls from IT to the business units as the software is easy to configure, navigate and use
- it is easy to integrate with existing core business systems which assist with compliance requirements
- it provides planning and resource visibility in a single view across the business - something we have never experienced before

Cons

Initially the structure of the software and language can be a tad daunting although once established, tailored and understood makes absolute sense.
There is the ability to create a work breakdown structure (as a child) although limited ability to show the dependencies between projects which would be helpful from a PMO perspective.
The continually saving after each change can be a tad time consuming and frustrating.

The application has all of the main items that you need to successfully manage any project.

Better visibility into what is happening on our projects without a huge amount of overhead.

Pros

Product simplifies the project management process without introducing a lot of date entry overhead. Application quickly helps you identify the areas that are drifting so that remedial action can be taken.

Cons

Learning curve if new to project management can take time but the help system is very good. You have to be prepared to invest a little time to get the most for the tool.

The CAMMS/Sycle product is a beneficial tool for annual budgeting and long term financial planning.

Pros

Features we like about the Sycle software modules we are using;

The ability to collate multi-year project planning, including project expenditure types, detail on the source of funds for each project, project descriptions, justifications, and comments.

The ability to create and produce varied reports, utilising the Sycle database as a source for Crystal reporting, and combining into one document project descriptions and budget figures.

Project details are available to all users, not just finance staff.

Cons

Things we like least;

The response time on support calls is very poor; for example, a call logged in December 2016 not addressed in any form until August 2017, and the patch didn't fully resolve the issue.

Integration between modules is too slow; for example, changes made to a project in the Project and Program Management module take approximately 10 minutes to `flow through and update in the linked Action in the Planning and Metrics module.

Inconsistent `rules; for example, if we attempt to change the date on a project, and there are tasks attached, the system will generate an error message for us to amend the task before changing the date which is what we would expect. However, if we change the date on a project (no tasks attached), but there is information in the preliminary budget fields and source of funds, it will allow you to change the date (no error message is generated to say for example `Budget data exists). Although this might be seen as `operator responsibility, it would be beneficial if the system recognized when values existed and generated a message accordingly.

Faster and more streamlined, visually appealing

Improved consistent project management and tracking thereof

Pros

The first item that stood out to me is the new style of quick updates from the home page and in the project hub in cammsproject. It is visually pleasing and easy to use, providing users with a simple way to provide current progress on projects and project tasks.
New project register is equally pleasing.
The general visual appearance is more open and giving the impression of space.

Cammsproject is faster and runs smoother than the previous project module. When editing an object table, it is now easy to see which cell you are updating (previously this was very difficult and a cause of confusion for customers)

The new project risk objects that link to the risk module have significantly improved in the layout. Where previously cramped, it is now open and easy to edit.

The new version of the project schedule loads in both IE and chrome. The new design is visually appealing and

Cons


Familiarising self with the new layout of items and learning what each icon was over reading a text menu took some time. It was a particular struggle to find administrative functions and individual project stages. This would not be an issue for anyone changing between the old project module and the new cammsproject.

Reports need further development, both in relation to the filters/parameters and the visuals of the report themselves.

As an admin, it was difficult to adjust to the new layout of administrative functions.

It is a good tool; however it lacks certain function to manage programs of work and collaboration.

At this point, I do not believe we have gained the benefits we had anticipated from the software. However, it is a combination of both some technical limitations of the tool and adoption within the organization. We were not as clear to the purpose of the tool and therefore staff were unsure how and when to use.

Pros

It links easily to our corporation's performance management system which permits reporting from project to relevant strategic and operational plan. Likewise, the technical customer support is very strong.

Cons

It does not easily lend itself to manage programs of work composed of many child projects without additional costs. Likewise, it is temperamental in how it behaves which requires customer support.

Its a great platform with ease of use and comprehensively has all the features

Pros

Flexibility, Ease of Use, Nice GUI, All use cases and comprehensive features. All the competitive products are around 30-40% of what CAMMS offers. Price point is also very comforting. Time to implement is too short. Its like - plug & Play software. It also offers all customizations and configurations. True enterprise class Project management platform.

Cons

It meets all our needs. The reporting functionalities can be worked upon and static reporting within the module will be a good fit. Rest everything is awesome on this platform.

The performance management portal is an intuitive and a straight forward means of reporting

Pros

The ease of creating the model, particularly actions, tasks and risks. The quarterly reports are well designed and easy to read.

Cons

The project management portal is not as easy to use as Scycle and there was some difficulty experienced by users when the updated version was launched which was addressed and supported by CAMMS.

Great system. It has saved us a lot of time in managing projects and brought some consistency.

Saved a lot of time in producing reports and chasing up information. Time is now spent ensuring quality rather than gathering information. Reduced duplication where people were being asked for the same information for many different meetings or committees. Improved accountability where now it is clear who is responsible for what and how things fit together into the Corporate Vision and Strategy. Improved compliance with Corporate Policies and templates. Improved accessibility where everything is now in one place and in the same format.

Pros

For me what makes this product stand out from others is the integration with their other products for managing Strategy and Risk. Project management is no longer operating in isolation and project managers no longer being asked for the same information by different masters.

Cons

I don't know if this is possible, but more and more we are wanting to integrate software like this into back office systems. While this is possible, it requires a lot of technical knowledge and can be costly. Such integrations are also not flexible or able to adapt to the changing environments we operate in now days. A tool is needed to make this integration quick, easy and able to be completed by the everyday user rather than your IT specialists.

An important part of our organisational Information Management transformation

Pros

Cammsproject, as part of an integrated cammspackage, has allowed us to systemise and consolidate our workflows for our project and country program management. The fact that this could be customised to suit our unique needs was an important factor for us.

Cons

The software itself has a lot of functionality which we like.
What could be improved is how we navigate within the system. There are opportunities to improve some design layouts and to make the system more efficient to interact with. Sometimes it seems to take too many 'clicks' to get to where we want to.

Easy of mind and automation in data collection and visualization

Pros

It has a holistic approach on organizational strategy and performance management. And being modular at the same time to suit current business needs. Some of the modules can even be integrated with existing databases and systems.

Cons

Despite the success in Australia and U.K. There is no presence of CAMMS in Asia. i foresee tremendous growth in this area and especially in the public sector area.
