Pros: "Next Project" is really easy to learn and to handle, because it is based on MS Excel. All necessary PM-methods are available. Next Project" used as a basis, makes multiproject management easy.

Cons: Because of the memory space required (depending on the amount of data entered), a good IT environment is recommended.

Overall: Before we implemented this tool, we had to use several individual tools, meaning different ways of documentation, which made it very time-consuming and exhausting.

Now we are able to handle more or less about 100 to 120 small to large projects at the same time. All of this projects have a similar documentation. Also for non-teammembers (Poolmanager) it is possible to quickly get a good project overview, because of a uniform method design. The "Next Project" works perfect (related to our requirements) in singleproject use (very helpful for Projectmanager and Teammembers). Within our Company we use the singleproject as datacollection tool for our multiproject management, for example Pool-Ressourcemanagement and other helpful management information.

Pros: Project information can be uploaded and retrieved directly from our project managers to the database, providing up-to-date project information at all times. The high flexibility with regard to field expandability should also be mentioned.

Cons: The software must be used regularly to keep the handling familiar. However, this is generally the case for special applications, so that this can not really be considered a disadvantage.

Overall: Since 2004 we trust the project and project portfolio management know-how of next level consulting. As for the software support, we have been using the project portfolio management solution since 2004, and in 2014, after evaluating other applications, we switched to the database-based next portfolio. next portfolio perfectly supports our requirements for project portfolio management.

Pros: Very easy to use PM-Tool which follows the PM guidelines like the ones from IPMA. When you are familiar with MS-Excel- you don't have to be a pro though- you can get down to the PM Basics without studying vast amounts of manuals.

Cons: Limits for the PSP and printing different views of large PSP's

Overall: PM documentation for large infrastructure projects
