Pros

User Interface has a good design and the steps to update project plans make sense in the workflow. It is not difficult to learn.

Cons

Not easy to update project plans, system response time is a bit slow. It is not intuitive to understand how projects are linked together, or find out which resources are working on what project.

Its very easy for me get current status of project and also I can find the past report of a task and project.

Pros

The features I like the most are gantt charts and projects portfolio management and invoicing is also a vital part of an organization.

Cons

As for now, there is no such feature Iike least in this project management system. However, the help desk section by displaying important things on the top

Hello,

we are using Genius now for more than 4 years. The support is good an the people are helpful.
But the range of functions is limited at some point. And sometimes I wonder, how functions are implemented. The use is not always that intuitive and they are not always implemented consequently to the end (ex.: connections between tasks and assignments).
But the new planner has potential.

Greetings

Pros

The new HTML5 Planner.

Cons

Inflexibility regarding customer adaptations.

I was impressed from the first time I used this application. I am an avid user of all project management software as I've managed PMOs throughout my 25 year professional career. The application is end-user friendly and the navigation is not complex so easy to learn.

Pros

ease of use, affordable, simple infrastructure to understand

Cons

perhaps develop the next layer of bells and whistles to further enhance this product.

Advice to Others

This application works well for what it is. It just wasn't what our team was looking for. We needed more of a task management tool (less project management), that allowed for flexibility in custom fields and linking tasks across projects.

Thanks for the review, Maggie. Our solution is quite flexible and adaptable to different industries, languages etc. That being said, you are right that Genius Project is much more of a project management software than task management! You may find our newest solution, Cerri Enterprise Apps much more suitable for your task management needs (www.cerri.com)
