Bundle of every need for a successful project manager and PMO team

Clear picture and visibility of all the projects at one place. All files related to projects at one place and all the changes and conversations with the team at one place along with Audit log of all changes. This gives us the flexibility to manage the projects easily and act upon the right step at the right time for all projects. This is the best tool in project management across all available solutions.

Pros

* Flexible to customize the fields
* Flexible to add or remove the required fields
* Scheduler
* Gantt chart automatic changes based on dependent task changes etc.
* Virtual user (Email and Get the updates via email is awesome)
* Customizing using the API and PHP
* Audit Log
* Issue management

Cons

Need to find out. Other applications integration such as SAP and Trackwise
Direct database connection with the SAP & Trackwise systems which will be very beneficial for extracting the information at one go.

My favorite app

Celoxis helps me manage my time entries better. I couldn't image a workday without using this app.

Pros

It's very intuitive, very user friendly. It has all the features I need for my day to day tasks.

Cons

It's quite slow sometimes. When I happen to have slow internet day, the app takes some time to display data.

Great S/W for customisation

I've seen some massive improvements between v10 and v11 and really impressed with the additional functionality, think this is a fast growing platform that a lot of companies should use.

Pros

The ease that it can set up and customised, the custom fields are great and means you can tailor it to any industry or type of project. The reports are easy to adapt and the financials can be set up for multiple kinds of project management, with timelogging it means you can move away from multiple s/w. The support team are very responsive and helpful and development keeps introducing new features from feedback. I've set this up for 3 different companies now with good success.

Cons

Only con is copy and paste is a bit different from ms project but same as most web based s/w and quickly get used to it.

A Great Tool For Small Team of Independent Consultants

Our overall experience with Celoxis has been on the positive side. The tool has helped us keep all our projects on track and collaborate within the team. The price and value is exceptional, especially for a small team like us. We don't use much of the resource management or other features of the tool, just keeping our projects on a strict timeline and tracking efforts towards various activities.

Pros

1. Web-based Interface
2. Mobile Access
3. Project Gantt Chart and Timelines
4. Alerts and Notifications
5. Time Tracking
6. Ease of Use

Cons

The interface is a bit heavy for a small team like us. I wish I could easily turn off a lot of features that I currently don't use. Yes, there is a way I can turn off costing and billing and other portfolio features, but even after that, I still feel the app needs to have a more light-weighted look and feel.

Celoxis helps gain control of project parametrics

Celoxis provides a very user friendly interface for allowing project participants to give accurate data. It also gives good group access to project plans, tasks, and milestones.

Pros

Ease of use for people to provide details of their actions and problems.

Cons

It would be good to import and export to MS Project for other corporate activities that are MS based.

Celoxis One of The Best Tools Out There!

Time Management and Team Management are some of the best features with this application. Some other features which includes time-sheets to log time doing projects as well as alerts via email and notifications on projects all the time. Celoxis is simply the best anyone could as for. One of the best Project Management tools I would recommend to manage large or small projects.

Pros

The Kanban feature is one of my favorite where the status of the projects can be updated.

Cons

The permissions feature is somewhat basic.

Celoxis review

Pros

Celoxis is a full software package to help with project scheduling, resource scheduling, project tracking and financials. It has great functionality for its price.

Cons

The software does not allow me to include % mark-ups on invoices, but there is a work-around we can do.

An app would be appreciated

We are using Celoxis to manage project timelines, timesheets, and budgets.

Pros

It is comprehensive, it definitely has potential but it needs to evolve more quickly. It feels clunky and outdated. It is not very visually appealing. It is so cumbersome to enter time sheets. Everyone hates doing their time sheets to begin with, it needs to be easy and fast to do.

Cons

It is too complicated to do things quickly, when you enter time in the mobile version, it does not list the entries by project name, it lists them by task which is not helpful. I would like to see an app that has alerts to remind me to fill in my time sheets, machine learning / AI that knows better anticipates my needs, and communicates with me like an assistant. I would like to be able to enter my time sheets with voice command. I would like to produce project reports more easily, get warning pushed to me when I am over budget, etc.

Celoxis appears to be everything I was looking for.

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.

This is not your typical task tracking software!

This is not a typical task tracking Project Management Software. It has it all, everything you need to manage a project.

Pros

This software is excellent! it has everything you need to manage a project. It is easy to use and very streamlined. I really like the fact that it has bot a risk management areas and an issue tracking area. The reporting features and awesome too.

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.

Celoxis is a robust platform with a stellar support team.

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

We use it for Project analysis, billing and forecasting.

Pros

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.

Celoxis is an all-in-one platform for project management.

Pros

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.

Is a nice tool and it have more functionality than a MP

Try to upload some tutorial to how to use it (in a intermediate level).

Pros

The interface, and how you easily can use it. I Think that the tool have many functions that a common tool doesn't have.

Cons

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

After the use of mac based Gantt planning app, searching an online app with calendar sync : Celoxis!

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.

Nice, simple concept that needs polishing

Would be nice to have a way to change the state of an app item through API

Pros

Simple concept all around (set up, general usage, reports, creating apps)
Smooth operation with API query

Cons

Plenty of minor bugs when installed in Windows Server, though they don't affect the overall operation of the system
Needs more thorough and accurate documentation

Great PM tool especially for digital projects

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.

Easy to use and feature rich project management software that you'll love

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.
