About NetPoint

NetPoint is a project management solution that helps users manage project details such as critical paths and information hand­offs. Users can access real-­time feedback for project dates, planning calendars and resource use. On-premise and cloud-based deployments are available.

Activities can be color­-coded, organized into lanes and presented in different layouts. Users can draw activities and milestones directly on the planning canvas in real ­time or import data from spreadsheets, P6 and MS Project.

Outstanding Software that is User friendly and easy to read

Easy quick scheduling. Easy to translate message to owners and executive management

Pros

Extremely User Friendly and visually pleasing. Allows for scheduling flexibility and visualization No Need to worry about scheduling explosions when making changes (MS Project)

Cons

The software does have a capacity for activities. Somewhat bogs down the computer if your schedules are larger in size.

Response from PMA Technologies

What are you waiting for?

I have used NetPoint for claim analysis, extensions of time determinations, and arbitration proceedings. Nothing convinces non-schedulers more clearly than a real scheduling program that functions with the simplicity of a visual bar/gantt chart. Critical paths change over time. It is difficult to prove/trace the history of the critical path especially if the schedule is not updated properly. Need to show the critical path left of the data date? Only NetPoint can do this. Non-schedulers don't care about the complexity of the calculations. I use NetPoint to tell the story of how events really happened and measure the reasonable impact of delays. NetPoint will not allow the operator to perform shenanigans with activity relationships.

Pros

It's easy to get started with NetPoint. When you go down the rabbit hole to figure out how every feature works, that's when the power of NetPoint will truly become apparent.

Cons

Schedulers by nature are people with OCD tendencies. The display scaling on ultra high resolution monitors needs to be fixed. I'd like to see a refreshed and more polished user interface / GUI. The node control size of objects is limited to small, medium, large..this drives me nuts sometimes. I'd like more options to control the size formatting of objects. I would also like the Global Edit mode to keep things in place when I close the file, sometimes my edits violate various text/attribute placement parameters...this drives me nuts too. Overall if I leave these features at their default settings, its ok. I don't use printing features...cause they're not that great. I use Take Snapshot, bump up the width option, and save to file.

Reasons for choosing NetPoint

NetPoint functionally supplements the scheduling products that I use. I have not chosen it to replace P6. NetPoint software can demonstrate value immediately, but clients are slow or reluctant to adopt. Contractor's not familiar with NetPoint often cast doubt on its results, claiming NetPoint is not "industry standard."

A great Scheduling Software that will MS Project a run for its money

The best part about this software is that I can lay down schedules of multiple projects on one sheet and see if there are any overlaps between projects. In addition, it is great to make presentations to the board using this tool

Pros

The best part about the software is the ease of operability and the next best part is you can visualize the schedule which is great for presentations and gives you an overall view of the project

Cons

The things I like least about this software is that while being very user friendly and being great for presentations, it fails to solve the purpose a P6 might be able to solve. It does not allow me to have unique ID codes for activities, tasks etc. though being a great scheduling software it does not provide any cost control features provided by P6

NetPoint from a large Global Business

PMA as a business and NetPoint as a tool have been very supportive and successful platform for our business. Our customers request this tool on many projects and is our standard IAP planning tool for the entire organization. PMA customer service is always willing to help very quickly. They have helped us solve many topics that come up with NetPoint.

Pros

NetPoint offers features unlike any other planning software. The viewing capabilities our project teams can see when we move task is above other planning tools. This allows our teams to become more interactive with the schedule and can really see the logic/dates they are assigning activities.

Cons

Currently none, NetPoint functions properly for our business needs.

Great Software for Interactive Planning, Communicating and Conveying Project Execution Plan.

Simplifies interactive planning. Easy to understand by stakeholders for their review and "buy-In" of the plan. Helps focus on critical and near critical path in addition to manage project floats. Great tool to simplify the complex and help upper management in decision making. Great tool for on the spot "What-If" scenarios. Real time and visual aid on impact on project plan based on changes and progress.

Pros

Easy to use and very intuitively. Great for interactive planning. Prefer software for upper management to understand critical and near critical path. Help team members to focus on critical activities and manage project floats. Easy to export data to Excel including charts. Easy to update and track changes. I used this software on a daily basis with directors, plant managers and execution leads. I will highly recommend Netpoint to anyone who has to work with planning and scheduling. Customer Support is A+! Fast response and issue resolve within same business day.

Cons

Inserting standards "Clip Arts" like arrows, lines, geometric figures not very intuitive and with no options like in MS Office products. Most cases I use a print screen in PowerPoint/Word for better comments. Resource chart and over limit not always easy to convey and understand.

Response from PMA Technologies

Thanks for the fantastic review, Gustavo! Glad to hear NetPoint is working for you and your organization. We take pride in simplifying complex decision making and are always working to enhance NetPoint. We are lucky to have you as a customer!
