Pros: Data entry is logical, it is easy to scope out and develop the schedule, amend links and visually present the work flow.

Cons: The challenge is saving the worksheet, especially if you want to keep earlier versions or run two (or more) schedules in parallel during schedule optimisation.

Pros: ease of use. There are also similarities between other software which make it easy to setup. The graphic presentation could be improve.

Cons: Still need to improve on the graphic presentation especially running under mac osx. Smooth implementation to import and export other format are needed.

Pros: It's very lightweight, the UI is simpler and less loaded than MS Project. I has reporting and EVA. The Portfolio logic is good too

Cons: Couldn't find a blank template to start from, it often loads the default template with loads of random info, which kinda freezes the app for a few minutes

Pros: Free licenses ion three pc

Cons: Navigation trough WBS (Gantt)

Overall: In general Stakepoint is much more handy than others free license apps, but it is difficult to navigate through WBS, this is upset when you have more than 35 tasks in your plan. Zoom can improve. In addition, you can't check if any resource is overworked.
I refer to the free version, I don't know if in the paid one all of these goes better.

Recommendations to other buyers: We are a seven person cooperative, and we do our best to improve and this implies to manage our work and this kind of app is a great tool for us. However, we can feel a significant difference between Stakepoint and Project in elemental tools: navigation, overworked resources, set a start date of the project. Nevermind, it is great to our team to find you app, and for free is enough for now to us.

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!
