Value for Money

If they improved ease of setup this product would be competitive for a small shop or contractor. The customer service is pretty decent compared to other online projects platforms though.

Pros

The sign up is easy, and the customization is relatively easy. There customer support is easy to get ahold of but not all that quick to respond. This platform can be customized in many different ways.

Cons

The upload functions are confusing and rarely import from CSV without failure. There is very little instructionals on their web page for basic setup does not even show how to add your first project, let alone the steps needed to import hundreds of projects.

We've been using Easy Projects for almost two years and it has been very easy to work with. There was minimal training, because the software was very self-explanatory and easy to learn on your own.

Pros

I like that at any given moment, I can see what my team is working on. I love the "my assignments" view, which helps me stay on task as my work keeps me on weekly deadlines. I also value the ability to discuss items related to a certain task through the message boards.

Cons

The guest user interface is not very intuitive to use. It's also frustrating that guest users can't track their hours when assigned to a task. The email notifications are also a bit excessive. I receive two or three notifications simply stating that a task has closed.

This product is as the title states "Easy". It is easy to use, easy to implement, easy to manage and easy to create reporting. Support team is very helpful and the fact that the company is always implementing new features to make the system even more functional and easy to use is a huge bonus.

Cons

You cannot easily print a time line w/details. There are many situations at our company when we need to print a timeline and to my knowledge this cannot be done.

My boss can see that I am super productive, not only from compiling statistics, but also because she is notified as I complete tasks.

Pros

We use a general project template and that helps me remember to do all the small, "finishing up" tasks.

Cons

I wish I could adjust the column widths on the "My Assignments" page. Only about 17 letters of the project names are visible, and I need to see more than that because most of our projects start out with a similar string of letters and numbers (the date, the campus, the college, etc). I end up using the Dashboard instead, which show s ALL my tasks, not just the ones I'm working on. The second column in My Assignments isn't useful to me, so if it could be customized so I could get rid of it (or move it to the third spot, since it doesn't matter if I can't see the whole word), that would be helpful.

Organized manner to assign and keep track of work development. Good record of projects, resources and timing. Good theory for integrated collaborative vehicle. Need to promote mobile app (I need to take time to see how I might use this) and encourage clients on best practices for mobile usage.

Cons

I don't use it enough and the way we use it internally rquires access to our server for design files instead of providing files in easy projects. This isn't convenient - particularly since many of us are mobile/on the go and not at a PC. I also can never easily find stuff in there without searching for it. Would be great if there was an automated dashboard and user home screen that was personalized according to usage.
