Highly recommend Project in a Box

I was tasked with setting up a project management office for the City of Reykjavik, standardising and supporting the work of over (initially) 90 project managers. As a part of that process we reviewed around 30 project management softwares, with the final choice being Project in a box. The software is extensive and reliable, the customer support outstanding and the price fair. We purchased an enterprise licence - three years after the the start-up we manage over 900 users and several hundred active projects in the software.

PROS

Project in a box is an extensive project management software, that is off the shelf but still allows customer adoptation. It is easy to install, can be used by users inside and outside the organization and is a comprehensive project management software with a multitude of useful features.

CONS

The software cannot be installed and then the users left to figure out how it works - a solid on the ground user support is needed. Also, as an administrator with project management but not a technical background I was on occasion challenged in my role. But the excellent support I got from the software company made up for that.

Reason for choosing PROJECT in a box

Off the shelf and quick to get up and running. Met IT safety requirements. Accessible inside and outside of the organisation. Extensive project and document management features. Price. Customer service.

Project In a Box, extreme value for money

We have been using Project In A Box for several years, it is feature rich, highly functional and extremely reliable. When you consider the price point for this software I am sure you will find like us that the value for money is more than 5 stars. We use if for projects, programmes and portfolio management, reporting on a strategic portfolio of over 500 projects with benefit values of over $400 million. The support provided by Prosis is some of the best I have come across in the software world. Great product, and 10 stars on Value for money

PROS

High levels of functionality, low cost, very reliable, integrates well with MS Office, Exchange etc..

CONS

Originally there needed to be an install of a "fat client" to access the capabilities. This becomes an upgrade issue when you are operating across multiple departments. We managed to resolve some of the issues through the IT Service Desk automated push of new versions. However in the last couple of releases they are moving more of the functionality to the browser interface so this should reduce the problem.

Vendor Response

David, Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences. Malc
