Comments: Program leader is very user friendly for construction and engineering firms. This software has enabled me to attach all of my inspection reports. If you're a small to medium size business I recommend this software because it's a tool to help you organize and assign individuals to different tasks during the project. Most project management software is developed for persons with an accounting background. Program leader was developed by an engineer who understands the essence of project management to effectively monitor any project. As a small company I invested in program leader because it was a inexpensive tool to help me run an effective construction consulting business and gain a return on investment. There are also updates for this software to help construction and engineering firms to remain competitive in the marketplace. You don't have to be an expert with the computer because they're lots of training videos to help guide you through how to use program leader software to manage construction and manufacturing projects.

Comments: Having worked at both State and Federal Agencies, I know the importance of providing ongoing and final reports to all participants and shareholders. My experience with Program Leader has been to evaluate its potential to provide such participants and shareholders both support and information. In my opinion, Program Leader delivered on its promise of ¿Today, Believe Again You Can Master Your Projects.¿ Its functional dashboard, instructional video and documentation, and comprehensive array of reports make Program Leader a solid choice for you to monitor¿ and master¿ your projects.

Comments: Pros: Lots of useful functions. Automatic scheduling from project templates from user-entered start date. Four-Part reports. Financial reports. Gantt charts. Lots of training videos.

Cons: With smaller projects, it would be useful if it integrated calendars with Microsoft Outlook. For larger projects, this not a big deal.

This software was implemented on one of DGS EPC project

Comments: "I wish that all our contractors used Program Leader. Mark is a highly effective lead project manager, a detail oriented, and efficient communicator, enforced by using Program Leader software to help manage a multi-million dollar project of many buildings, and gave confidence that he was managing and organizing the entire project extremely well and achieving project completion successfully.

Akrem Awwad is an "owner project manager." He depended upon his contractor (me) to produce the best solutions for the State of MD. Program Leader helped me show him and his team what we were doing to answer his and his team's needs. He then had useful data to base his judgments. The project Gantt chart done in MSProject did not engender trust. Program Leader did. Thank you, Akrem!
