After a lot of searching, I can generally find responses. It just takes a long time and time is very precious on our team.

Pros

Honestly I don't like much about it. It's easy to read the responses once they are found within the software, but finding them is so challenging.

Cons

How difficult it is to navigate and sort. Sometimes the filters change without me telling them to. It's just hard to use.

Making it easy for me to create proposals without a lot of industry knowledge.

Pros

I like how user friendly it is. For someone who has no experience in the industry I am working in, PMAPS makes it easy for me to find the pieces I need to create a professional proposal.

Cons

For a few weeks I had extreme difficulty logging in. It would continuously say my username and password was invalid and I never would get emails (they just wouldn't send) to update them. It was difficult to get the help I needed logging in.

Good content management. Once built, automation is a nice benefit.

Pros

I think the UI is pretty simple and easy to use. Most of the buttons are clear about their functionality.

Cons

There are several limitations to creating documents from Salesforce. While I understand that there is a need to have PMAPS map fields from Salesforce to PMAPS, I think there should be a tool to allow users to build.

Makes my job easier

Pros

I use PMAPS software as a way to store, retrieve, and update high volumes of data. In the past few years I have been using PMAPS I find it makes my job easier. People in my group who are new to PMAPS find it difficult to search and would prefer a google search.

Cons

The unlimited technical fee model needs to be reassessed. Our group is charged a discounted fee which I believe is not reflective of our use of support. In the last 2 years I have not called the Support Group.

Being able to narrow down searches through categories. I like being able to right click and narrow down the amount of categories in the search to make it easier to find the document I'm looking for.

Cons

Sometimes having to ask for assistance to locate a document because of the wording. Having to be specific with wording in the documents I'm searching for can make it harder to find exactly what I'm looking for.

From my work.

Pros

PMAPS works well as a document library. The filters and options to narrow down searches works well. The Save Searches function helps to cut down time when looking for documents that I use on a daily or weekly basis.

Cons

It's pretty archaic. The interface isn't friendly and the search function doesn't work as seamlessly as it could.

I am able to find responses to questions daily to complete my work tasks. Some responses are super easy to locate which I love, while others are more difficult to locate, based on the complexity of the question being asked.

Pros

I like the filters and I always look at the number of times a document has be inserted. It's a helpful feature that I have used often.

Cons

Difficult to search through 100s of documents... the key word search is difficult, it would be nice if it was more like a google search.

Pros

The software provides an excellent conduit to organize information. When uploading information, there are several different customizable categories that the user can use to sort information. This lets one customize how they want to tag and tier their information to make searching through thousands of records seamless.

Under each uploading record, there are options to maintain notes, input the personnel responsible for uploading and/or reviewing the record, and options to put dates on when records become outdated. The last feature is especially helpful as the database will automatically change the highlight on the PMAPS dashboard for any record that has reached the creator's expiration date. This function is immensely helpful on ensuring answers used have been updated or at least recently reviewed.

The ability to link word documents to PMAPS makes it quick and painless to update documents through the re-link function. This work with both qualitative and quantitative updates and is a huge time-saver.

I use the PMAPS software as a way to store, retrieve, and update thousands of individual records. I've found in using it these past few years that it makes the job far easier.

Cons

When working on PMAPS cloud version of Excel of Microsoft Word, there is no autosave feature, and it's not uncommon for the program to run into errors and forcibly shutdown. You have to make sure to manually save every so often as you will most likely experience the program closing on you unexpectedly at least once if you use PMAPS prolongedly. The saving process on PMAPS can be a little slow (relative to offline in word/excel), so a background frequent autosave would be a really nice feature.

I've struggled to use Excel well with PMAPS. Overwriting Excel save files or inserting PMAPS records into Excel files frequently does not work or bugs out. I think Word works very well, but I've had enough struggles over the year that I just use Excel completely offline from PMAPS.

When using PMAPS, you don't have the complete functionality of Word or Excel in their cloud system. If you want to change certain advance settings on Word, you have to close out of Word on their cloud, open Word offline and make the change, then re-open Word on PMAPS to have it integrated. There is no `file tab in Word or Excel when working from the PMAPS cloud.

Its a good tool for placing all content in one location.

Pros

I like that I can use the software to search key words and the copy paste doesn't completely change the format of my document.

very generic software and doesn't have the same traits as google search when searching for content.
