    Pros

    Visually it just works, I get the big picture at a glance and the reports are easy to use and display the desired data without the pain of ms project data capture.

    Cons

    Few issues with timesheet entry, it's a little clunky and I can't add new tasks while populating the time sheet a feature I had grown used to, but this may be purposeful as best practice can be clunky sometimes. Also, task entry is slow, but if this is the sacrifice for the end visual then it's probably a valid concession.

    Cons

    This software has it all. the only thing I would like to see is a mobile app for Android smart phones. This would complete an already great project management software.

    Pros

    Celoxis meets expectations for project management in the software delivery industry. We are able to leverage Celoxis globally to track our implementation projects. We track our financials, resource assignments, and % complete in this tool. Celoxis has a great reporting structure and flexibility in creating your own custom fields. When the tool does not have the exact feature I need, I have been able to work with Celoxis training to find an out of the box solution or submit a feature request with surprising success in having them delivered. Celoxis often has more functionality than my teams are ready to adopt and I find that the operational issues have more to do with people and process (not tool). I especially like the flexibility of the client log in feature and the customization of what each person can see in their own dashboards. I really love that it can serve as the one central repository for project updates. We have been using Celoxis for a little over three years and are quite happy with it. Within a few months it will be our global standard.

    Cons

    Celoxis is a standalone software that needs to be integrated with our Salesforce environment, therefore, it has taken some additional investment on our part to automatically trigger projects at closed/won state and feed the data into our financial systems. Celoxis is also real time data so there is no back button if you delete something or the ability to restore a previous version. Since I am using this tool globally I would like to see more workspace segmented admin features to control what is seen by each region throughout all reports and tasks. Additionally, we have had to perform a few workarounds to get full billable and non-billable resource load charts in the tool. Since many people go to outlook to see if a resource is available, the current Celoxis Outlook integration (a separate calendar) is not sufficient for blocking off the resource from being scheduled for other things. I suggest the following improvements
    - Direct Outlook Calendar integration that blocks off scheduled time so people in the business can see that the resource is not available and actively working on a project. (currently we book time in Celoxis and Outlook - double entry)
    - Non-Project Time viewed exactly the same as billable time from projects in the resource load charts including the time code and % allocation
    - Administration features for further segmentation or archiving of the data
    - Data restoring options including restoration of deleted objects restoring to a previous day

    Its ability to download to other software and its internal report generation. For a cloud based software it works well.

    Cons

    Need even more facility to use external with Excel or Access. Would be nice if the reports would be a little easier to set up internally and you could get selected sums more easily.

    It has a lot of features that can help companies manage their projects. The interface is user-friendly, so the users will not have a hard time navigating this software. It also has a lot of integrations, so all the documentations needed are readily available. It keeps everything in one place.

    Cons

    The QuickBooks Integration needs to be improved in terms of expense tracking. Nonetheless, QuickBooks is still accessible. The expense tracking is just not as automated.

    Cons

    I think that also this tool doesn't have some functions that are basic. But as I said other functions complement the app.

    Publications of the project tasks cleanly on each of our team member google calendar.

    Pros

    Gantt edition is at its top, calendar publication is reliable, ergonomy is quite enjoyable, and at the top, you have a present customer service, which reactive for a feature we were missing (separate publications on vcal, distinguishing projects from tasks and events). That feature is to be coming, but such reactions are really enjoyable.

    Cons

    Name is not easy to remind, as it as no link either to Gantt, tasks, projects or something like that. That may have unserved its developer a bit. Really, not much to add here : think of it like a nice to use (dapulse, basecamp...) with omniplan or MS Project features. Yep.

    Pros

    As well as the standard ability to plan project, Celoxis allows you to bug track, resource plan, and create a wealth of reports. Not only that but you have unlimited client access for clientst to be able to log and view their own bugs as well as track the progress of their project, granting specific permissions and allowing full transparency.
    I also like the ability to customise reports and fields, import project and export reports in csv, pdf and msproject formats.
    The support team are incredibly responsive in addition to the articles and forums within the help centre.
    On a daily basis I use it to plan projects, allocating estimated hours per task, check progress of a project, check the resource availability, and calculate risks.

    Cons

    With each release improvements are made, but whenever there is a release the system can be a little buggy, but is usually resolved very quickly and tickets are dealt with promptly.

    Value for Money

    If you're looking for software that hits the sweet spot for robust features, ease of use, and price, you cannot do better than Celoxis!

    Pros

    --Ease of use: When I first signed up, I was able to create two projects completely from scratch in under two hours.
    --Tech support is responsive: I noticed a feature that wasn't working the way I thought it should. I reached out to tech support who showed me another way to make the changes I need AND he referred my concern to the Engineering Team. Within 2 days they had made the change.
    --Features: Celoxis really shines when it comes to the project management features it offers. I love the interactive Gantt charts, the ease of making changes, and the ability to track budgets without information overload.

    Cons

    --The only downside is the lack of robust integration with Quickbooks online. While it does send invoices to QB, you can't synch other information.

    The fact that you can have a shared space for managing projects and sharing the progress with internal and external teams. Also, the possibility of creating dashboards for overviews of team projects.

    Cons

    Well, there are some specific needs with our company but most of the time we opened tickets and they are solved quite quickly. The thing I think should really exist is a CTRL-Z option, when you make changes to a project and want to go back to a previous version, it isn't possible ... sometimes testing calendars is a big part of making calendar proposals to teams and it would be a great help.

    Celoxis has made the inner workings between our project managers, team leads, and accounting dept way more efficient. The reason for only 4 stars is because of the practical use in the Gantt chart interface. The scroll bar disappears, the screen will scroll/jump after saving work, and saving can sometimes taking an excrutiatingly long time, even for smaller plans. I have confidence, however, that these will be addressed asap in future updates.

    We started using Celoxis a couple of years ago after a long selection process, and right now it is the hub for our project teams. It is great for project and time tracking. We still have to rely on other tools as well, but we hope some of the existing functionality will be enhanced in the future.

    The tool has a lot of great features to include a lot of fields for details of a project; however, I have had issues with saving and the project rolling back up to another line, so I am constantly losing my place. It is a very annoying issue with the tool. The tool often runs slow with saving and has some weird issues with using 1/2 days for the duration. I contacted the help desk and even shared a cloned project to have them fix the issue with saving and it relocating you to another place in the project plan but nothing was ever done about it. I never got a response. This issue really needs to be fixed. Additionally, when you expand and collapse items, the system needs to save that for the next time you open up the project plan.

    Pros

    The features and reports available. Allowing you to add hours for projects in the same tool as the project plan.

    Cons

    Saving and it relocating you to another place in the project plan. Collapsing and expanding but it not saving that.

    Have had a very positive experience with Celoxis although I am not too sure the notification feature works correctly. I cannot rely on it so I must go in and check to ensure nothing has changed. Also we customized one of the screens and needed to use the notification feature, but are unable to do so. Other than that - this tool is AMAZING!!

    Pros

    Easily locate what you are looking for. Easily identify estimated/actual hours...I am not a project manager and do not use it to its fullest, but what I do use, I find it very user friendly and quite frankly not sure how we managed without Celoxis.

    Cons

    As previously mentioned, the notification features does not work as it should

    here are many great things about Celoxis, but to me the following stand out above all 1) Thorough replication of MS Project functionality. Most competitors take simplistic approach to project plans, but for us this was not an option as out project plans initiated in MS Project are extremely detailed. The fact that Celoxis handles all the data and does it with ease was the number one reason we chose this tool. 2) Performance Our largest project Plan to date has 5000 lines - more than enough to make other tools choke. Not so with Celoxis. Performance is adequate, and they improve it from version to version. In the beginning I was concerned that the project managers will be slowed down when working with Celoxis project plans, comparing to their workflow in MS Project, but all these concerns disappeared very quickly. This is a very fast tool indeed; especially considering all the data it crunches. 3) Reporting No surprise there as anyone who tries Celoxis comments on its Reporting capabilities. These are second to none. Essentially - almost everything in Celoxis is a report, and you can include in these reports any objects that exist in the system - users, clients, projects, tasks, documents, discussions, assignments, and the multiple attributes of those objects. All reports are sortable, filterable, and configurable for the personalized view. Charts are interactive. Object names are clickable, allowing for the quick access of any object listed in the report. Note on the performance: I have to add that the latest version v10.5 was the first one since I started using the system where performance went down. It is still good, but more of our project managers started noticing the lag when they use large project plans. Now, unless you have a super fast machine that can handle heavy client-side javascript with ease, you may have issues. I sincerely hope that this is going to be addressed in the future versions, and that the system will keep improving, as it was before v10.5. Truly, when performance lags, no awesome features can make up for its absence.
