for a free apps, worth trying it out and use it for the basic timeline management.

Pros: easy to handle and intuitive if you know Project

Cons: not robust, stable

Overall: It was a nice option at first, but when i needed further usage of more advanced commands, like linking tasks or move dates, was hard to get it to work. Once i had a big bunch of data already on the program, and suddently crashed, and lost all teh advance done, had to restart again :(

Recommendations to other buyers: support was great. intention is great, but needs more muscle on the insides

Dear Antonio, Thanks to you support ticket and your review. As for the lost work you are the only one to have ever recorded this so far so we continue to suspect you ignored the file recovery warning. As for the issue you reported this was solved off from 1.09 (we are 1.25 now). Regards, Maarten,

Pros: Analysis and reporting, collaboration and free

Overall: I have used stakepoint to Manage Resources, Plan, collaborate and report. Overall I found it to be a good product. We used the free versions and were happy with the features.

I will definitely recommend using this application for small and medium scale projects.

Comments: Project management tools are always meant for days, weeks, etc. For many implementations in Software or Experiments the time scale is in milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours etc. Stakepoint should make the software handle used defined "ticks" so that it can handle projects at any time scale.

Pros: Is it to easy to use, Better than on other project management softwares. Quite interactive.

Cons: Needs to be more graphical

Overall: I have used many project management over the years but But this has fascinated me more than any other tool as the complexities and difficulties while drafting a project implementation plan have been catered quite brilliantly in this project management software. What a project manager needs when drafting a project plan is the ease of access to different tools and variables which stakepoint covers quite impressively. I have recommended this to many other of my colleagues and they are quite happy using this for the routine activities and plans .

Comments: I've been working as a Project Manager for a couple of months. Many times I was struggling with papers and some e-documents, trying to monitor few projects at the same time. In the end I was always somehow finishing myself in a mess with bunch of documentation. Then, a friend recommended StakePoint to me. StakePoint helped me to easier manage and monitor every project since and, not only has saved me some time but also improved the quality of the projects I was managing, since it is so easy to monitor and do a proper follow-up of any number of ongoing projects. I am highly recommending this tool to any future or present PM!

Pros: Flexibility, customer service

Cons: Some functionality doesn't work as expected, but this is usually sorted pretty quickly

Overall: I have been using this piece of software for a number of months, and yes there are a few bits that could do with some improvement, but when I raise a support ticket, I get a response within half an hour.

As mentioned above, there are a few things that could do with a little tweaking, but overall the software is great. I did quite a bit of searching, and could not find anything else with as much functionality. I'd highly recommend.

Recommendations to other buyers: I know this is in development, but a high res mac version would be greatly appreciated

Except mentioned, I follow the news of StakePoint from its early beta. Even that time I'd got its the best planning software, and for now I think the same.

Thanks.

Comments: J'ai utilisé la dernière version de démonstration pour voir si nous pouvions nous servir de ce logiciel pour faire évoluer notre gestion de planning chantier :
- l'aspect graphique est très bien fait
- la création des tâches / ressources a une bonne base
- le rattachement de documents est très utile est bien pensé

MAIS

- L'imputation du coût des tâches n'est pas assez intuitive
- il semble y avoir la possibilité de gérer la facturation par projet, mais ce n'est pas assez intuitif pour que je le trouve
- le projet ne peut être déplacé d'un seul bloc avec les tâches lui correspondant
- il n'y a pas de visualisation graphique de tous les projets à la fois (ou alors la façon d'y parvenir n'est pas assez intuitive)
- il a l'aspect d'un planificateur de projets, capable de gérer l'utilisation de ressources et des conflits en cas de demande d'une même ressource sur différents projets à une même date, mais ce n'est pas le cas

Vendor Response

by StakePoint on April 07, 2016

Bonjour, Je vous remercie pour votre retour. Pour le moment la gestion des coûts est faite de manière similaire à MS-Project dans le but de reproduire les budgets identiques. Vous pouvez bien sûr déplacer des taches et des sous ensemble, mais vous ne pouvez déplacer un projet dans un autre, ni créer des sous ensemble avec des liens circulaires. Si je comprends bien la sélection de tous les projets (Ctrl + a) ou des sélections multiples avec (Ctrl + click ou Shift + click ), n¿est pas intuitif. Nous allons modifier les menus sur ce point, car c¿est justement en utilisant les sélections multiples des ensembles et des sous-ensembles que vous pouvez analyser au mieux les conflits de charges des ressources sur les différents projets. Je vous propose néanmoins de télécharger l¿exemple suivant: http://stakepoint.com/support/stp2015/Dreaming%20Cloud%20Ltd.portfolio Merci de bien vouloir nous faire un ticket de support, mieux adapter à des réponses plus rapides. Bien à vous
