Pros: Helps keep our vision and strategic plan front and center of all of our activities and clearly shows how the various goals are going to be reached and their current status in line with all projects and areas the school is working on. The functionality of the reporting tools are easy to work with and provides the necessary information we needed - when we need it. The customer service and support is phenomenal . Our account manager from Envisio is beyond responsive, he is pro-active and provides insight that has moved us very far forward in a very short period of time. The Envisio team is inn general very responsive to the needs of the clients and providing a user experience that is easy, functional and effective.

Cons: Takes time to ensure everyone on our end is up to speed with how to best use the software. It is important to make sure you try to get everyone on the same pager (or as close to as possible) to ease everyone into the software and its use

Envisio not only changed how we do things but shined light on why we do Strategic Planning.

Pros: Using Envisio has allowed us to truly make a cultural shift in how we perceive strategic planning by bringing everyone into the common fold. The Envisio team is always responsive to feedback and makes changes were possible for the user. I have always appreciated the efficient communication and willingness of their team to go above and beyond what I would have ever anticipated.

Cons: The reporting has been cumbersome in the past but enhancements have made it easier to use. It has been challenging trying to figure out who to provide user access to as it seems everyone wants to do their part but then it becomes cumbersome with reporting and progress updates.

Great product, well designed, flexible and clever.

Pros: Envisio has an astute sense of context, presenting a diverse array of users with screens that are directly relevant to their role in strategic plan management. The constraints seem right at first, but once folks start using the tool they realize those constraints provide an excellent structure for fast, easy reporting.

Cons: The Measures could have more options for displaying data, it's currently bar charts only which is fine but limited.

Great Project Management Tool

Comments: For managing projects Envisio is great. The City of Edmonds Washington is managing 86 complicated tasks associated with a Strategic Plan. The implementation will span several years involving a 7 member City Council, 9 City departments with a full time Mayor, and 29 outside groups made up of other government entities and volunteer groups. Being able to establish key performance indicators and assign and track action items for each of the 86 elements is very useful in managing all the participants.

While the system is intuitive for an active user infrequent users have a little ¿re-learning¿ to do their work. The help tool could be improved to guide infrequent users find where things are located and help with definition of terms.

Enviso will prove to be a valuable tool in managing the City of Edmonds multi-year series of 86 project elements of our Strategic Plan.

Hi Darrol, Thanks for the review and feedback on the help tools. As you know the subscription includes free support and training and users are welcome to contact us for help at any time. However we are constantly working to improve the self-help section and we will be including video tutorials in the coming months. Best Regards, Cara Ong

The staff has been extremely helpful as we have journeyed through implementing Envisio into the city

Pros: I like the integration between performance measures and strategic plans. I like that the interfaces are fairly user friendly and easier than our old excel process. Love to see how this can advance as we move forward.

Cons: I love that new features are constantly rolling out. Would love to see more download options for data and the ability to move items more easily in the system.

Overall: A one stop system for the integration of performance measures and strategic action plan items which include focus areas, goals, and actions.

Intuitive alignment of strategic goals down to actionable steps make an awesome collaboration tool.

Pros: An intuitive organization of high-level strategic priorities down to actionable, measurable steps simplifies the reporting of accurate, timely status of several hundred activities. Envisio is much easier to understand and use than traditional project management software. Excellent, proactive customer service is a hallmark of Envisio.

Cons: Generated reports are long; however, it is not difficult to remove the white space and customize the content.

Pros: the link between strategy, key performance indicators and the annual business plan has made reporting for staff and the Board of Directors much easier. Board Directors can now track the progress of the organization according to preset metrics and delivered in easy to read reports.

Cons: Not much..we find it very user friendly and easy to use. The ongoing development is assisting in identifying any small items and addressing them.

Envisio has been an outstanding platform for our organization to implement our strategic plan.

Comments: Envisio ties WHY you are doing everything you do into your daily task management. I would be lost without it - it has become the center of my workflow. As it develops, it will be the only software I need (once it includes document sharing, storage, and team conversations within each task). It keeps all of what you do organized in a way that you have easy access to what you need, rather than having pieces of information all over the place. Other solutions provide good project management for each individual project, while Envisio pulls them all together into context. I would highly recommend it.

Pros: Envisio is a very intuitive software, designed to help departments to communicate and collaborate their strategic plans using state-of-the-art technology. In addition, the Envisio technology based software, allows local government municipalities to provide comprehensive and uniformed reporting for all citizens within their communities to review.

Cons: N/A - Still learning how to use the system. Will discover more about software, once Envisio is fully implemented as a recordkeeping tool to provide deliverables and outcomes.

Pros: The Envisio user interface is very easy to navigate and the site itself is very responsive, even when accessing it from overseas.

Cons: The only aspect that I believe could be improved is locating the edit feature of the tasks and objectives, instead of relying on the drop down arrow.

Overall: The software enabled us to stay organized in our 3 year plan.

Pros: Tracking and setting goals. We have been able to set and track goals with relative ease on a city wide and departmental basis.

Cons: A bit cumbersome with reporting and modifying. It takes quite a bit of practice to eventually be able to move thru the software and understanding it.
