Comments: Janus is a wonderful tool to utilize. There are several reasons why I personally like Janus. The main reason is its user friendly format. I do not have to be computer savvy to understand and utilize the software. I do not have to have a costly personal trainer to train me on how to use the functions. This leads me to my second like; the simplicity of it. I have everything I need right in front of me and do not have to have a lot of different t-codes to learn and try to remember as I do with a software such SAP. I prefer and enjoy the ability to be able to download the reports/information to excel and have the capability to turn this to a PDF right there on the spot! The deal sealer to me is the invoicing. I am highly attracted to the capability JANUS has to send the invoice to the customer's email and the customer is able to approve from their end and I am able to track all of the movements from my side; minimizing the risk of loss invoices and lessening the payment turnaround. JANUS is just right. Not too much and definitely not too little.

Pros: Speed, ease of use, and overall functionality.

Cons: I wish it was available sooner.

Overall: The JANUS product allows its users to quickly, efficiently, and accurately manage project costs. In a previous project I found myself close to being over budget and edging closer to the critical path. Through the ease of the JANUS solution, I was able to target the problem areas and bring the project back on budget.

The speed of JANUS allows for large projects to be entered with ease along with standard features that allow for seamless reporting and integration into excel. This product was clearly designed with the cost/project controls professional in mind.

Recommendations to other buyers: To better leverage the capabilities of the software I would suggest attending one of the numerous informative product lunch and learns.

Pros: I love the usability compared to others on the market.

Cons: I have not had any yet exactly.

Overall: I have used MANY different project management systems: complex ones from SAP and Oracle, specialized ones like Primavera, as well as sundry retail and in-house systems for costing, budget tracking, and risk management and I like Janus the best. Janus is well thought out from the user perspective. It is a PM centered program, not an IT centered program. By that I mean that the interfaces are intuitive, as are the reports. Janus is very scalable as well It works great with big systems and simple spreadsheets too. For this reason it is a good fit for companies trying to implement project systems and controls as well as a great system for those who already have it. For those of us who have worked in organizations with little project discipline and focus this is a great tool to introduce to your company/ client. It is not overwhelming to use or install. This is a very well thought out, well rounded product.

Another great thing about Janus is the support and the knowledge level of the support. Janus has been developed by a team of career project management people who have brought to the market the tool that we have been asking for.

Comments: Janus is the cost control solution that organizations will benefit from. It takes the complexities of total cost control management and simplifies it. I have not come across a software that moves from module to module as quickly as Janus. Janus is essential to project controls and it is the most robust software I've used. Organizations now tend to rely heavily on excel spreadsheets which can be cumbersome. Janus will help you save time, increase productivity, and efficiency so that you can make better recommendations to management.

Pros: Comprehensive cost control software, linked to schedule, includes original budget from the estimate, through actual costs, forecasts and management of change. There is consistent interface between modules. Modules include a master equipment list, contingency drawdown, manpower, forecasts for cost and revenue, and features for risk and confidence, and labor adjustment factors. It is quite advanced for a project control system.

Cons: I would love to see some way to link to resource and cost loaded schedules even though across industries they are not even done well.

Overall: I reviewed Janus software from the view of a project controls professional with over 40 years of experience in designing, implementing and utilizing project controls software on major domestic and international projects.

Janus was designed by project controls professionals with experience in many different industries with a diversified client base. I contains a very strong master equipment list module that is essential for developing a meaningful baseline budget. In addition, the software contains Management of Change modules, contingency drawdown (build up / build down), actual costs and forecast by both cost and revenue. The software also contains capability to adjust risk and confidence based on class A through D estimates. You can also adjust on labor adjustment factors as well as historical factors.

Manpower budgets, actuals, and forecasts are particularly robust, allowing for a more detailed analysis as one drills down into the data. The interface is consistent between modules, consistent and clear graphics are used throughout. That approach will be extremely valuable for Clients as they roll this out to their user base.

Recommendations to other buyers: Software developed by project control professionals is always going to respond to user needs better than software developed without that experience.

Comments: Since working in Janus, I find the cost software package is a remarkable tool. It is very user friendly. The system is easy to navigate, easy to input, edit and delete information as needed. The system moves fast with little to no wait time once information has been inputted. All the information you need to keep account of your cost is all in the same area. There is no need to go to different software applications to gather information. Once you log into Janus you will see all the information you need. There are drop down tabs by title; there are subtitles that will allow you to input the information you need from (MOC's, Master Equipment List, Man Power and etc.) This program better analyzes company's cost to improve their operations and efficiency.
