Pros: I am very visual, and WorkOtter provides several different visual aids to keep our projects on target. The dashboards have been huge for our team - each is tailored to the user's role and each team member can build their own dashboard and reports. We can all customize our displays so they're configured how we prefer. I especially love the ability to see and arrange all of our ongoing projects into a portfolio. It helps me manage everything we have going on!

Pros: I decided to give WorkOtter a go on a change management project I was working on and it was honestly a great experience. I found it to be a very effective system to operate on, in what concerns usage. The support team was also of big help, since they were always available to answer questions and doubts in this transition. The automation and intuitive aspect of the software allowed our most untrained coworkers to take full advantage of its features while our senior coworkers utilized the opportunity to expand their ideas.

Everybody needs to have this system - WorkOtter is a complete system!

Pros: I've been looking to change my PM software for a while now when I came across WorkOtter. This system allows you to link and attach documents without having any data cap or usage limits which is great because my team has lots of big files. The integration between JIRA and MS Projects is great because I still have a few projects with those platforms. The system offers interactive Gantt charts and reporting features. The customer support was really really great in helping us with all our questions.

Cons: Currently English is the only language supported. But the system is great so far, looking forward to more improvements

Pros: Working with many people is a challenge, considering the complications on communication and sharing of ideas and Work Otter has helped a lot on this aspect. Our team found it easy to contribute and brainstorm by attaching documents and using dashboards, which have no capacity limitation. Collaboration of teams is automatized and they can keep up with each other's progress via portfolios time and status, saving searching time.

Cons: Our team members are from different places around the globe. Although all of them speak English, another language option would be a plus.

Pros: Work Otter is a very fun and dynamic system to operate on. I quite enjoy the oportunity of configuring the display, which makes it appealing for me to use it often. The practicability of using worksheets and dashboards are a pro for me since I like organizing things on sight and having them easy to find and to operate on. Receiving the reports on my email is also very useful, since it also serves as a reminder to work on a specific project. Until now I have appreciated it very, it has had me working more effectively than many other systems I have tried before.

Pros: It is possible to centralize tasks, which enables a clear communication among peers. Using scheduling
tools for generating reports grants us a broader view of deadlines and terms, which is crucial for meeting our agendas and viewing our gaps. Engaging on creating dashboards was something we encouraged on the company after we started using WorkOtter, we found that because of the clear and responsive interface it was dynamic for everyone to provide an input on different subjects once their were visible and accessible.

Cons: I have nothing to add as a con for now. We would actually really like to skin the app, in search of more.

Pros: I work with a team of senior and junior analysts so the intuitive interface that WorkOtter provides facilitates the work of knowledge multiplication and sharing of ideas. Being reasonably priced I was able to expand it to our other facilities and the team could use it to share their projects to each other more efficiently, due to the superb cross-project visibility, best practices were used among them. I can definitely point out the timesheets, reports and customizable dashboards as a positive feature, the visibility of information are to our team are as important as the content itself, so it took that on our advantage.

Cons: We have facilities around the world, I would like to suggest the app for our other sites, but English is the only language available.

Easy to use! It is the perfect work-management solution for a large company.

Pros: Since I work with 4 different product categories in my company, the aspect I like the most about Work Otter is the ability of building project portfolios according to the category or work force I am working on for example. Before purchasing this software I had the chance to have a free live trial, the team was very supportive and patient showing all available features. WorkOtter was an affordable ppm considering the other options I had in hand.

Cons: WorkOtter in available only in English and I have employees in other countries, they understand English but not really well. It would be good to have it available in other languages.

Helps team collaborate, it is a solid and flexible system.

Pros: Work Otter has a clean and straightforward interface, with interactive visuals you can customize inside the reports. It also presents an excellent array of features for project managers and support for integrating other tools like Excel, Microsoft Project etc.
It was nor complex at all to get started with and the whole system has a clean and up-to-date appearance, very intuitive which made it easy for me to figure out the basics of how to use it within a few minutes. Best PM system I ever used.

Cons: I would like to have local storage options, the only storage option currently available is Cloud and I am not really sure if this will work forever.

This software is as multifaceted as the concept of Project Management.

Pros: Accomplishing my work with WorkOtter has never been easier. It is so user friendly, and planning and scheduling can be done in a jiffy with Resource Management. One of the best features is Microsoft Project integration because I could download my work directly to Microsoft Excel.

Cons: I simply love the functions of WorkOtter and there is nothing that I can think of needs to be improve. However, it would be great if there are more than one language to choose from while using of the software, in the event that people from Asia would like to use or purchase the product for business.

Overall: This software keep me on track on all my projects that I am working on. It keeps me organized, efficient so that I could finish my project on time.

Pros: Well, me and my team used to manage all our projects with MS Project but the integration with Jira never worked quite well so I was looking for a different solution and I had a very positive experience with WorkOtter.
Something that really surprised me was the support team, they were amazing and helped us out during the entire transition process which was a great deal as my team was overloaded and could not leave their daily jobs to work exclusively on this software transition.
One other thing that seems simple but was a big deal for us is that WorkOtter send reports to users emails automatically. We have to do that a lot during the day and it saves time.

Cons: I am from Brazil and they support English only. I already mailed them with this suggestion but no ETA yet.

Simple and complete system, I highly recommend it.

Pros: If you're looking for a project management platform that doesn't require months of set up and data migration this should be your first option. When I first tried WorkOtter I needed a tool that my staff could understand and jump into it within a month. I had great support from the development team, they were really helpful and efficient.
To make the transition easier I customized the displays to look a little bit more like our previous software and it was an awesome quick off... I found it helpful that I can also build my own dashboards and different reports to work with the team and easily present the progress and status on management meetings without having to "massage" the data for hours to have a clean, complete report.

Good for cross geo management, my team loves it!

Pros: Supporting a team spread between India, United States and Brazil is not easy and I had a hard time getting everybody on the same page but Workotter was the perfect tool to fix this gap.
All dashboards are customized to the user's role so I can determine exactly levels of access, views, authorizations I want them to have, this way I protect the data and ensure a safe environment.
Something I noticed a huge improvement is the project overall tracking. All my Team members find it easy to keep up with the assigned activities and have proper tracking of each project status and time and resources spent. Everything is great so far.

Pros: What I like the most about Work Otter is how simple and intuitive it is to work with and I am saying that compared to all other systems I've tried before. Overall it can be simple but it has advanced features that come in handy for a project manager, features such as status reporting, risks mitigation, changes to the project etc.
Another feature that made a huge difference is that I can subscribe to a certain report and WorkOtter sends me regular emails with updates so I don't have to log in all the time to see what's happening to my project.

Cons: I am not a fan of cloud based systems and that's how Work Otter works but so far it's working so let's see how it goes...

Pros: This is a capable project management and work management tool that comes with several excellent dynamic features for helping teams work on projects through completion. What I like the most about this PPM is that collaboration across the team increased after WO was implemented. My team is able to keep track of work, track time, provide status and share documentation, we no longer have files in different places and different version which is something that help us avoiding errors due to wrong data, avoids rework. Gantt charts are easy to set up, view and edit, as a PMO this is crucial and I appreciate how easy it is to work on Gantt charts with this program.

Pros: - It's very easy to customize, it lets the user arrange information as preferred views to help ease the tracking of information.
- Projects require a significant amount of documentation to support the tasks, to be used as reference information, for auditing purposes and reporting. WorkOtter offers unlimitted storage allowing user to store any documents without having to worry about the available space.
- WorkOtter offers an easy and simple section to track times and task completion allowing "light users" to keep close track of their work and also great input for the PM to pull out reports and estimates.
- Reporting section is great, it offers a significant amount of templates to build reports making it sufficiently versatile to present relevant information for specif project gorups (i.e. Sponsors, Stakeholders, Team Members, etc) in a simplified way.

Cons: - Software layout and design is a bit plane in comparison to other software for the same area.
- Information can look a bit cluttered when browsing thru the tasks dashboard and Gantt view.

Overall: Simplified way to track and get project status updates and completion rate.

At the same time takes the weight of one's shoulder because it really does it all for you, saving me time and money while creating a perfect plan for my company.

Pros: I have a Master in Project Management, I apply all the Project Management principles to all my projects as a Management Consultant. I love most of all that at the clip of the mouse I can analyze the risks, cost and resource plan of my project....in addition, I can also see the progress of multiple projects. This software is a combination of all the PM software out there....inclusive of msprojects. I intend to use this software to do my work.

Cons: I need training from the developers themselves. To train the staff in Jamaica. That would be great for our company as we are a part of the government sector and we need tools like this software being used all over the country to assist Project Managers to run better projects in all public sectors in Jamaica.

Overall: A great one stop shop. I am able to be even more organized as a consultant.

Pros: WorkOtter is a complete project management tool, it has a simple user interface, much simpler than some other of its competitors, but is also has advanced PM features as well.

You can customize it to look basically just like you want it, if you want, you can arrange your projects in a portfolio, for example.

Any PM tool needs great storage as well, and WorkOtter gives you unlimited storage so you can link and attach documents without worrying about size.

You can assign tasks to other team members, and you can easily check status and track activity times as well.

So, this is easily the most complete, user friendly and usefull Project Management tool I have ever tried. Definitely recommend it.

Overall: This software transformed how our supply team handled our projects, this has given us complete control of each activity, and increased our productivity dramatically.

So, this program has done more for our company than any other that we have tried in the past.

Pros: I like that WorkOtter provides the ability to see the higher-level overview of projects/programs, resourcing, and financials - it's all integrated so you can see real time where things are.

WorkOtter has great dashboard views that you can easily drill down into to see specifics.
The Workflow is really helpful. It also integrates with MS project and other PM tools which is a plus.

WorkOtter allows me to manage projects but also plan and forecast - easy to do what/if's scenarios and to see how different scenarios impact resource planning.

I am both a manager and a project manager - I like that this tool allows me to see both the micro and macro view of where my projects and team are at any given time.

Cons: Not too much, I like it a lot. If I had to pick an issue it would be that it is dependent on the quality of that inputted data - but that is the case with any tool like this.

Pros: The thing I like most about WorkOtter is that it is cloud based and so it can be used collaboratively within a large group without any issue. And that enables real time update and tracking making it very efficient.
Tons of necessary features like interactive dashboard, gantt chart, PM features, forecasting, budgeting etc makes it a must have tool for project management.
The dashboards are tailored to type of user, customizable reports, instant sharing, automatic distribution are some of the most desired features.
Compatibility with excel and microsoft project is a big plus.
I am using it for about two years and really satisfied with it.

Cons: No notable cons, but aesthetically could be a little more attractive. But still does the job enough.

Overall: I can easily keep track of the tasks, issues and risks. It also makes budget allocation very easy. Instant sharing and cloud platform makes it a very easy, efficient and handy tool.

Pros: Very versatile and EASY program (at least that i have used in my experience as a PMP certified PM) to track like a road map your task on projects, sort, pivot, and filter tasks, engage and compare stages of your project. One thing i liked is the ability to play with "what if scenarios" and see how that affects cost, times, etc overall in your project. You have tons of great analytics to use, Gantt charts, Critical path, heatmaps, matrix, time bubbles... ohhh! and dont forget this can be Integrated/export/import with/from JIRA, Excel and Microsoft Project! All reports can be also emailed to users.

Cons: Some features might need updates as new updates are added/edited by Project Management Institute. Missing the updated software or new patches part.

Pros: WorkOtter makes the complex tasks of project management very systematic and easy to handle. The interactive visuals and reports have helped us analyze our day to day project progress and share it with the team members. The dashboards are tailored to individual user roles and hence it helps us keep our data secure and also makes it easier for our staff to access information that is relevant to their role. Our project team can easily track the project status and timeline without having to depend on each other for updates. I have used many project management tools but WorkOtter is very easy to get started and integrate with platforms like MS Project and Jira. I highly recommend WorkOtter for companies requiring project management, gantt chart analysis, and documentation storage.

Cons: They can add colors more appealing to look at.

Interactive features such as charts

This software is more easier to use than other project management softwares

Overall: Very good project management software with great support.

Is a very user friendly tool, it can be used by Junior or Senior PM, simple, efficient and dinamic.

Pros: I really love how simple the tool really is, with that I mean, if a have a new Junior PM or Project coordinator in the team, will be easy for that collegue to get into track very quicky, is not like other tools where you have to spend hours and hours in training. Next to that, the tool also provides with amaizing advanced PM features that allows me to have everything under control, create reports, update status, check changes and all that.
Another great part of the software is how interactive the reports are, as a Project Manager i am always looking to provide with information in the most simple way possible, WorkOtter allows me to do that but without leaving behind the visual and interactive side of it.
A project usually mean time and time will ALWAYS mean money, one of our favorite tools as PM in order to have time under control are the Gantt charts, WorkOtter offer me a great variaty of interactive features in order to make my charts more useful and correlative at the same time, is incredible the amount of information that you can get from a good structurated Gantt charts, thanks to this tool now I can provide the status to the folks almost everyday without spending hours updating the chart and the info.

Cons: I will like to been able to personalize the user guide interface of the software according to a specific project or company, this talking about branding and marketing. For example, when I am in a meeting been able to personalize the reports and tools

Pros: You'll find all sort of tools that promise to help you improve your productivity and a huge list of methods for tracking tasks. User-friendly. It's very affordable, especially for small teams.

Its simplicity, certainly it has captive my the team. They've all adopted this methodology immediately. Workotter allows us to collaborate daily in a virtual way in the joint projects, being able to assign different tasks, to know the state of its progress, to hold conversations, to give us constant feedback and finally to see those that have already been completed.

Cons: Should be available in different languages though. In addition, I think visuals and the board's structure should be improved.

WorkOtter has definitely made my portfolio and project management a whole lot easier !

Pros: I love that there are customizable, role specific dashboards. It means that everyone see exactly what they need to in order to get their job done.
The huge variety of report types to choose from, their interactiveness and the ease of automatically emailing them to team members is a huge time saver.
Overall, projects can be easily set up but as the project grows you will be able to take advantage of all the higher level features you expect in PM software.

Cons: For anyone who is not familiar with this type of program, there will be a slight learning curve but that is to be expected with any new software.

Overall: Fully functional project management software that can be integrated with MS Project & Excel if needed.

I can do really cool interactions since it shows me everything what's going on in my organization. Very interactive and visual software that allows me not only to see and arrange my projects but to build my own dashboards and share them with other people from my organization.

This is the kind of tool every manager requires. Not only it automates team collaboration but it can also be integrated with JIRA, Excel and Microsoft Project.

Cons: I liked every single aspect of this software. I think it meets the requirements that every manager needs to have in order to manage, control and share the company's projects.

Overall: My job is easier.

Another great thing about it is that is super easy to build Gantt chart with all the features the tool offers. Also, since we work with technical drawings and product packaging arts, our files are usually really large and with this software, different from the one I had previously, I can attach these files without worrying about the size limitation! Anyways, pleasantly surprised and highly recommend WO to anyone.

Is really good for a project manager looking to be more efficient and above all making sure that everyone is doing what they have to do and that deadlines are being met.

WorkOtter sure has delivered!

I'm very happy about finding a tool that can truly support collaboration across different teams in our organization and make information available in organized and efficient ways.
WorkOtter can also be integrated with other platforms such as JIRA and MS Project.

Cons: I believe the colors (design) could be a bit lighter to make the platform look and feel a bit nicer.

Pros: First thing I noticed with WorkOtter was the aesthetics of the homepage. Even better, you can configure the display if your eyes weren't as please as mine.

The ease of being able to stay on top of my team members workload and status is an amazing feature. Helps to keep me up to date on how my group is doing and making sure I'm not bogging anyone down.

Project management can be so unpredictable with so many moving parts, it's bound to happen, each project will get pushed back. WorkOtter has simplified that, if a project timeline moves, WorkOtter can easily move the new timeline, shift start dates AND email my team members.

This software keeps me organized even in the most chaotic projects.

Pros: It really hits the nail on the head when it comes to Portfolio management, Resource Management, and organization. It also has a custom feel because it can be tailored depending on the customer needs. Furthermore, the integration between JIRA and MS Project is a plus because they are commonly used in many companies.

Cons: The graphics are good, and I realize it is an incredibly dense program, but even more enhanced graphics and general layouts would help from an aesthetic standpoint.

Overall: WorkOtter allows us to actively manage our projects and it has rich functions available to customize, create, and track any and every part of the project from every stage. It is used in any sector that needs project management. It really hits the nail on the head when it comes to resource management and organization. It also has a custom feel because it can be tailored depending on the customer sometimes. This aids in productivity because it is adequately sets up the system for our company's needs. As far as usability the product is great because it it simple and easy to learn. The tool is also great because it can integrate with Jira and MS project. We have several teams that use JIRA and MS Project and the integration makes it easier for our productivity. One of our favorite features are the dashboards because it also helps identify issues quickly and get to the really meat of the project faster. We have worked with several different PPM tools and WorkOtter is definitely one of the best products for PPM out there.

Recommendations to other buyers: Its one of the greatest tools out there and the usability is great!

Comments: This is perfect for organizations looking for an all-inclusive enterprise level project management software. It's flexible enough to accommodate different roles and responsibilities. Different individuals on the team have dashboards that cater to their specific function on the team and on a project. The software also does a really good job at people resource management. I value the view that shows time allocated vs. overall availability of members on the team.

There are business metrics built in that senior management will find very valuable in determining the overall business value of projects.

Great for teams who want a sophisticated project management experience and flexible enough to accommodate all types of projects.

Pros: The dashboards are easy to create and full of valuable information. The role management capability is crucial to managing resources and budgets. The governance model helps team members understand the work flow and how things get done.

Cons: The software needs to be more flexible to integrate with 3rd party solutions outside of MS project. There is no way to track time inside of the application via timer.

Overall: As a project manager I am always looking for ways to add a visual aspect of projects to share with my team and with WorkOtter's dashboards I can make this happen. Role management is also a great way to keep my team organized and focused on only the data and elements that they need to see.

The resource management tool is a lifesaver. It allows me to track my team's utilization as well as scale up or down the resources I need to get any project completed on time and under budget - without burning out my team members.

MS Project sync is another excellent feature to get a project started in WorkOtter. I can work out the details I need regarding my project privately via MS Project and then upload it to WorkOtter so that my team can view the plans, resources and budgets as needed. The option to continue working in MS Project or switch entirely to WorkOtter is valuable and seamless.

I also find the ability to easily create custom reporting on the fly a feature of great importance. Quite frequently I am called upon to present timelines, budgets or resource constraints which makes it helpful to present data in an easily readable format to my customers or executives in a timely manner.

WorkOtter is a great tool in a market of sub par competitors. If you are a Program /Project Manager, Solution Designer or Developer, WorkOtter will help you stay on track and remain informed of your responsibilities and those of your team members.

Comments: Features and Functionality (4 Star) I think there was some really unique and needed capabilities provided by the software. Sandbox to Production is a very nice feature when looking at an overall view of current and scheduled projects and the ability to see different scenarios prior to making public. Planning and scheduling seemed very easy to use along with Resources.
Templating is very important to PM and PO as the similarities and workflow are the same between many different programs and needing to create workflows for every program can be cumbersome, the time to build templates is worth the long-term time saving

Ease of Use (4 Star) While the video did not show all the features, the ones show pertaining to Portfolio, Project and Resource management seem to be easily understandable and relatively low training requirements for new users.

The sync between MSP and WorkOtter was a nice feature, however it didn't appear to be a live sync and the user would need to upload/download/upload back and forth seemed to raise the question, why use this if I can manage in MSP it didn't drive home that it would be a solution to no longer use MSP and a phasing-out solution could be used in this way.
I think most users are looking for a 1-all solution, to avoid different groups using one management solution while another group uses a different one.

Comments: WorkOtter is the ideal project management tool. It empowers the project manager and his entire project team. It was designed with a system of systems engineering discipline but is also fully functional and feature rich in its own right. I am a systems engineer and project manager and appreciate the fact that WorkOtter lets me look across many projects in one tool through its ability to interface with other project management tools such as Microsoft Project. The flexibility of WorkOtter to manage a linked project in its host environment or in the WorkOtter environment provides a valuable service to any project manager. Overall, the tool is set up respecting industry standard processes and methods which gives it an authoritative feel. You don't feel as though you're cutting any corners. However, it's also customizable so you can tailor the tool to provide only the functionality you need by simply not activating some choices on a project by project basis. By far, the best feature of WorkOtter is its superior ability to communicate across projects, people, and organizational boundaries. Communication is the key to success in running any project and WorkOtter enables success as a communication tool.

Pros: The dashboard featuring past due, due or high risk needs.

Cons: It's a little nit picky, but the colors of the charts. More muted colors or cooler colors are more visually appealing.

Overall: It is great to have multiple projects set up within an overall project in portfolios. The dashboard shows exactly what needs to be taken care of (due and past due) as well as any issues that have come up. A great prioritization tool for PMs.

Integration works well with MS Project and Office365. Easily tailored without having to customize software.

Built in reporting easily to chart and manipulate. Helpful segmentation. By people/roles/resources.

What-if scenario tool is helpful before employing into live view.

Missed milestones. Risks. Forecast v Utilization provides an at a glance look of needed areas of improvement.

Much easier to use than others: getting started and maintenance.

Pros: The resource management is incredible because it syncs with your org structure. The levels of project vs. portfolio management is helpful for a high level overview and displays nicely on the dashboard. The ability to import custom templates and tools is my personal favorite.

Cons: There are so many features you may not use them all, but they're there when you need them!

Overall: WorkOtter really takes into consideration all types of projects. The dashboard is visually appealing and easy to navigate, allowing for quick status updates. Plus it's customizable based on your role in the organization. The user/resource management piece is most useful for my organization. Many systems allow you to assign resources, but WorkOtter is unique in that you can import your org structure into the system, creating a whole new level of resource management.

My favorite part is the ability to build or import templates and tools. As a Certified Project Manager through the Project Management Institute I always go to PMI to find templates that are relevant to my project. Having the ability to import these templates directly into my workflow is a huge benefit for me.

I would highly recommend WorkOtter for any project, large or small. This is next level management.

Recommendations to other buyers: It plugs in to other systems (like Microsoft Project) easily if you need to do so for compliance reasons

Comments: This application elevates the concept of dashboards to a new plateau. Not only can you view key performance indicators (KPI) from a role-based perspective; the user can expand to an organizational perspective with the program and portfolio dashboards.
One of the biggest challenges to any project is resources management; particularly when the business unit has limited resources. Through the Human Resources view, WorkOtter provides executives with the ability to make pro-active decisions regarding talent and budget.
Finally, the application has seamless integration with Microsoft products (MS Project, MS Office, etc), as well as, effortless compatibility with industry standard formats (.mpp, .xml, etc)

Comments: From initial introduction to WorkOtter you can tell the creators put a lot of thought into the interface and the ability to run several projects at once with relative ease. I found the interface and main dashboard very user intuitive and very responsive when making edits. As someone who has used several project management software systems in the past (Basecamp, Confluence, Jira, Harvest, Workamajig), WorkOtter has advanced options when it comes to pulling productivity reports and seeing real time project data. I like that based on the user, you can be more than one project owner or status (aka PM on one, creator on another, etc) which allows for different access and views. If I had any critique at all, it would be the colors of the charts (red, yellow, green) being rather primitive but that is a quick fix or maybe still in beta.

The ability to manage all types of projects and portfolios in one interface is extremely valuable. Creating customized ongoing reports is a breeze and extremely valuable in the business I am in.

Pros: The flexibility and custom reporting

Comments: I've been looking for a user-friendly, high-quality PM application for quite some time. As a practicing PM with multiple (too many!) projects going at the same time, Work Otter offers tools to manage resources, timelines and budgets easily and quickly. The user interface is easy to navigate and easy to interpret and the reporting function is awesome. I also LOVE the fact that it interfaces with MS Project. I'm looking forward to making my life easier and completing more projects more efficiently!

I have Peace of Mind!

Pros: It helps me manage my team and projects

Cons: It's very complex. Has a lot of features but once you know what to use, it gets easy!

Overall: I can't begin to explain how helpful this software has been for my business. I have used many project management tools in the past, however, this one in particular is life changing! I own a Professional Services Agency and work on many different projects at once. A challenge for me was managing my team on a large scale. I needed to see what was happening at all times on each project and this Software has become our solution. We're now able to communicate via WorkOtter and I no longer have to wonder if things are getting done and what the status is on each project. As an entrepreneur, I am a big believer that time is of the essence and if you are looking to save time, this is where to start! It is a lot more complex than other project management tools, however, once you get the hang of it, it is really easy to use!

Recommendations to other buyers: Nope!

Pros: The easy to use and convert ability

Cons: None

Overall: The software is helpful and easy to use. The collaboration with other software has reduced time required to perform Admin task. and to convert. The layout is easy to read and easy to customize. This software will certainly help keep the team aware of the various stages of multiple projects. The team members will also be aware of the task and duties they have to manage. Another great part is this software is great to use if your small and only have 1 or 2 projects or if your large and have a great deal of projects going on. Plus the price point is great.

Comments: With over 30 years of experience in IT project management, in every role from team member/developer to managing multi-national programs, I can say that WorkOtter is one of the best products I have seen.

As a web-based product, WorkOtter is immediately cross-platform solving one of the largest problems faced by large-scale integration or development projects with nearshore and offshore resources.

The interface is simple without being simplistic, and the product is feature rich. WorkOtter offers numerous integrations out of the box, and the pricing can't be beaten.

Two key features I particularly like about this product are the heavy emphasis on templates and the workflows that are built based on practical experience. WorkOtter derives from the knowledge of project professionals.

Keeping Complex Projects Simple, WorkOtter does the Trick.

Comments: WorkOtter is an easy to use program to help you keep on top of all your projects.

Customizable to meet your needs depending on the scale of the work involved with multiple goals and objectives to track progress. Users are able to update their progress and statuses so you can see where everyone is in relation to the overall project goal.

The price is great, the features fantastic and it streamlines your complex project into easily manageable pieces that you can adjust as necessary.

Love this.

Pros: I appreciate the integration with Microsoft Project. This allows users to capture necessary detail beyond what a browser based project management tool can offer.

Cons: I would like to be able to group organizations and view metrics such as CPI and SPI for these organizations and sub-organizations. It would also be nice to have integration from costing software such as Deltek Cobra.

Overall: I was introduced to the WorkOtter software as a way to manage the complexities of managing projects with multiple moving pieces in a browser environment. The dashboards are simple to understand and reliably function as intended. For me, reliability of software is an important concern, and this software appears to be reliable.

Having worked on multi billion dollar projects, I can appreciate the need for top level views of performance of various areas, and WorkOtter provides clean and crisp graphics to give project managers and organizational managers the analysis and insight that are needed to maintain a project's budget and scheduling requirements.

One of my favorite parts of the WorkOtter software is the integration with Microsoft Project. The ability to have an immediate graphical representation of the budgetary and scheduling impact of work done in MSP gives valuable insight to project management teams.

Thank you for introducing me to this product. I will be sure to recommend it to my colleagues in need of such software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Overall, this is a fabulous product. It seems well designed and will be well positioned to compete in an ever growing digital marketplace.

Comments: It was easy to setup and simple to use. It is great for a company with people in lots of different places. It also has the ability to restrict access in different ways when projects need to be limited to certain users. We needed to use it in ways that are probably not typical but found their support team to be very helpful. Unlikely other software we are mandated to use, it is nice to have software like this that is user friendly.
