Comments: This product was purchased to manage large software implementation projects. The software is extremely easy to use and encourages participation from all members of the project implementation team.

Pros: Highly intuitive, web-based tool. Extremely easy to use and flexible. Very pleased with customer support - they are extremely supportive and responsive.

Cons: Could improve the ability to report and sort on various fields embedded in the database. But improvements have been made in this area - they are very open to suggested modifications to their product.

Comments: I have used this tool for 8 years and have stopped using all other related tools unless my customers use them. This is the only tool I have found in the market that helps improve methodology and manual process execution. The ease of use to develop a "methodology" or template was what I first found helpful. I still use it today to model out what is in my head. Then, to use the template to create a "project" is simple and straight forward. The fact that NO OTHER TOOL does this is ridiculous to me. With all the "standards" and methodologies out there you would think there would be a place to store them electronically and then use them for the appropriate project. I have used this for New Product Develop (NPD) Stage Gate processes, Software Development (SDLC - all types), New Employee On-Boarding (NEO), and even very large global transformation programs with 50+ countries needing to be rolled out? With any software there are always areas that we want improved as we use the tool more and more but with PIE, the only thing I want improved is my customers engagement with it since it would make the projects more successful!!!!!

Pros: Increases team productivity by over 30% based on my experience Improves quality of project execution Allows Executives complete visibility of all projects in REAL TIME without powerpoint Provides Portfolio view with interactive Drill Down Allows teams to collaborate in real time on anything within the project Allows executives to jump into collaboration to answer questions and solve issues Generates a list of "To Do's" for each team member to execute Easy / simple to use Electronic methodology and process capture Process modeling is very easy methodology continuous improvement dynamic updates to active projects with methodology improvements Ability to link to templates and documents into other tools like SharePoint, behind clients' firewalls for security Inexpensive for the functionality Ability to import and export to MS Project & Excel The portfolio roll up is based on project(s) structures and not just a roll up of task lists. So, PMOs can actually see what structures appear to be working better for the organization. This helps improve performance over time.

Cons: Nobody knows about this tool so it takes a while for my customers to see the value Initial learning curve can be high for project managers because this is NOT a task list product like MS Project, clarity, workfront and others. it is a PROCESS based execution platform which improves performance over task management.

Comments: I have used Pie for 3 years now. I discovered Pie while researching project management alternative tools for Law Enforcement Managers. This user-base is not typically trained in project management. I needed a product that would allow the IT project teams to manage their projects, while providing an easy graphical interface for the managers to see the progress, status, risk, and issues on a particular project within their command. I was also looking for an application to serve as an institutional knowledgebase for organizational processes. Pie allows users to create reusable process templates and easily convert them to active projects was a true Godsend. I have implemented Pie in my IT project management firm. I have always been a cake-lover, but now I truly LOVE Pie!

Pros: Easy to use for those who do not know project management. Easy to Administrate Can import/export MS Project files Provides a user contributed template community that can be used as a starting point for your project Support is very responsive to customer suggestions & inquiries

Cons: I look forward to more & varied templates as users in different disciplines contribute to the community. I would like to see more automated standard project management reports generated from project data.

Comments: Great tool that allows for planning of one-off projects and repeatable projects and processes. Repeatable projects and processes can be set up via the creation of templates (from an existing project or from scratch). Pie is flexible enough so that projects then can still be individualized based on specific needs of current projects. Set up allows for visual clues on where you are at with the project, what dependencies are and for larger projects helps tracking the individual layers of a project simultaneously or one at a time. Communication between project members is easy within Pie. Dashboard gives great visual clues on where which project is in terms of completion.

Pros: Visually very appealing, helps planning steps and reminds you do create actionable steps that answer what by when and by whom. Allows for easy collaboration with co-workers next door, across departments, across companies,

Cons: It would be great if Pie synced with Outlook or Google calendar to create one stop 'shopping' of what's on today's, tomorrow's, this week's table.

Comments: We've been using Pie Matrix to manage 13 exhibitions per year each of which involves 100 + steps. We're an art gallery and without Pie our team would not know what the other members are doing. Pie lets us keep in synch, collaborate and continually make our process better.

Pros: Best interface out there.

Cons: Won't run on an ipad but with two in ones, hardly matters any more.

Highly recommend PIEmatrix for managing comprehensive project plan & more

Comments: As an owner of a project management consulting firm, I only use software and tools that are highly effective and easy to use. I have been using PIEmatrix for several years to manage many different types of projects and highly recommend the product. The dashboard view shows me the latest status of my entire portfolio of projects and makes portfolio management and prioritization easy. The executive reporting functions and views have allowed me to eliminate hard copy reports - I use PIEmatrix to show project status to stakeholders and project team members, and run status meetings using PIEmatrix. It has eliminated the need for additional spreadsheets to manage risks/issues, or project data, and project status reports and steering committee reports. Everything can be managed from within the application. It also allows users to create templates and reuse across their projects - which increases efficiency and drives consistent project management practices across all client projects.

Pros: 1) Manage risks and issues at the project and task level. 2) Collaborate with project team members from within the project 3) Manage project data (budgets, etc) with the project 4) Easy to baseline schedule and manage critical path

Cons: New social collaboration feature is amazing - I'm looking forward to additional functions and reports that will allow me to extend usage of this feature to cover tasks such as gathering feedback from the team, or post implementation reviews, etc.
