Pros: I love to have all project aspects together on one single site.

Cons: It may be a little bit confussing when you get in for the first time and you need to set up a project. But that gets better and better when you realize that you can manage all project aspects and easily get reports for each project.

Overall: The best aspect of Frank Collaboration is to have all project aspects together on the same site. It makes your journey so much easier as you can manage the communication with your client, the files transfers, the financial aspects all in the same website.

When you have many projects to manage this is a reliable platform that allows you not to leave unattended items.

You can also track the time that you and your team take to develop each task and deliverable. This help you to take care of project health and make sure the projects have the expected profits.

Recommendations to other buyers: Test the BI section. It is great to have the chance to appluy filters by staff, by project, by client, etc. Very useful to track the time consumed and the remaining hours of a budget.

Pros: The overall design, is very intuitive.

Cons: Needs to run better on the cellphones

Overall: It's really useful how to track hours project by project. In AEC industry this is mandatory in order to grow taking care of profits. The BI section is very user-friendly and allows you to track hours with different filters. The design is very cool and easy going. Also, I really enjoy with the portfolio option. The Project Dashboard is a strong weapon for a management perspective.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a strong weapon to take project reports quick and easy.

Pros: Having all the information in one place. Not only for ease of access to information, but to have only one access for our new staff, and when they leave, have only one door to lock.

Cons: The interface is nice, well designed and graphic. I can tell it still needs more time to develop and fix a few odd stuff.

Overall: At first, I thought it was too complex for a small firm. I quickly realized life is complex anyway, and you need to be on top of all those matters to keep your business running.
It took us a little while to get used to it, but we stopped the craziness of having files all over the place and never knowing what was really going on.
It has made us more efficient and has allowed us to give a better response to clients when they request information about their present or past projects.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be afraid to start with basic. You will quickly understand the logic of Frank and move up to Project Management for a full suite to help you and your PMs do a better job. The rest will come with time, and at no effort to you or your staff. The more you use it, the more benefits you will get.
