    Pros

    The only thing I like about this software is the ability to search and find key words/responses in old documents quickly.

    Cons

    Program is extremely costly for smaller companies that do not need to utilize all of the functions. Difficult to use and slow customer service. Uploading is time consuming

    It serves as a place to store all of our most frequently used responses -- making it possible to to go to one place.

    Pros

    It is easy to use -- not complicated. It is helpful to have a place to store our most frequently used responses for RFPs.

    Cons

    I find the key word search process frustrating. It is very difficult to find what I need when using key words.

    I like that I can access my entire library and filter by categories. This makes conducting my job easier.

    I wish the results were more consistent. I don't often get the same results from the same searches, perhaps I just need further training.

    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.

    I wish the search function operated more like a search engine. Often times the results will vary even when the same information is entered.

    From the software I am able to do a little more than I normally would without it, that was a plus for me.

    Pros

    Cons

    seem a little slow at first speed has taken up but maybe when too much load or usage it slows down a bit.

    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.

    Pros

    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.
