Pros: Celoxis meets expectations for project management in the software delivery industry. We are able to leverage Celoxis globally to track our implementation projects. We track our financials, resource assignments, and % complete in this tool. Celoxis has a great reporting structure and flexibility in creating your own custom fields. When the tool does not have the exact feature I need, I have been able to work with Celoxis training to find an out of the box solution or submit a feature request with surprising success in having them delivered. Celoxis often has more functionality than my teams are ready to adopt and I find that the operational issues have more to do with people and process (not tool). I especially like the flexibility of the client log in feature and the customization of what each person can see in their own dashboards. I really love that it can serve as the one central repository for project updates. We have been using Celoxis for a little over three years and are quite happy with it. Within a few months it will be our global standard.

Cons: Celoxis is a standalone software that needs to be integrated with our Salesforce environment, therefore, it has taken some additional investment on our part to automatically trigger projects at closed/won state and feed the data into our financial systems. Celoxis is also real time data so there is no back button if you delete something or the ability to restore a previous version. Since I am using this tool globally I would like to see more workspace segmented admin features to control what is seen by each region throughout all reports and tasks. Additionally, we have had to perform a few workarounds to get full billable and non-billable resource load charts in the tool. Since many people go to outlook to see if a resource is available, the current Celoxis Outlook integration (a separate calendar) is not sufficient for blocking off the resource from being scheduled for other things. I suggest the following improvements

- Direct Outlook Calendar integration that blocks off scheduled time so people in the business can see that the resource is not available and actively working on a project. (currently we book time in Celoxis and Outlook - double entry)

- Non-Project Time viewed exactly the same as billable time from projects in the resource load charts including the time code and % allocation

- Administration features for further segmentation or archiving of the data

- Data restoring options including restoration of deleted objects restoring to a previous day

Excellent in many, many ways although with some shortcomings

Pros: Fast, customizable, no-nonsense interface, wide variety of reports, custom apps

Cons: Weak in communication tools, does not have an email editor, only notifications can be sent out through commenting in apps, can't attach files to those or send to multiple client officials. Discussions at Project level allow those but not at app level.

Overall: Celoxis is a great PMS, without any doubt. I like that they keep the lists and reports simple but powerful. It is nimble because it uses text rather than too much of graphics effects etc. You can generate a wide variety of reports. Comes with free client portals which my clients love.

It has a very powerful feature where you can define your own app with it's own workflow, custom fields etc. It has a trigger mechanism as well to change states of apps when responses are received, which is very, very useful. I have created as many as 8 apps for incoming opportunities, defining a request tracker system, payments, contracts etc. etc. That is extremely useful to organize everything around a Project. It has shortcomings in communications area like not having an email editor at all and you can write (through commenting) to only one client (one person) from within the app etc.

You get all this for a very low price unlike Salesforce etc., that's a deal!

Recommendations to other buyers: Learning curve can be steep in the very beginning but after that you will love it.

Pros: In addition to its amazing project management feature, I love the flexibility that we can create a custom app and tweak the custom fields to automate formulas, processes and creates necessary report we need.

Cons: Limitation on graph feature but I think that the capability is enough for our needs. However, we're looking forward if Celoxis can add more features that could help us get use the most of it.

Overall: In addition to its great project management feature, celoxis have a powerful flexibility on creating custom app where you can tweak custom formula and create a processes that will give amazing benefits on data management and very useful reports and tracker that help us track our on time delivery and improve our team work at same time by work collaboration.

in 4-6 months of using celoxis and developing some custom apps, we've brought our overall on time delivery from 40% - 80% that results to successful projects and happy customer. By developing custom apps from our QA inspection registries, we've save a lot of time spend on doing reports, eliminate unnecessary meetings and manage our data effectively.

In couple of weeks we're working to upgrade our account from cloud to on promise and we're very excited on the next breakthroughs we can achieve together with celoxis as our partner.

Recommendations to other buyers: All systems have their own cons, but look and focus on how you can get the most out of its feature and you'll be amazed!

Pros: As well as the standard ability to plan project, Celoxis allows you to bug track, resource plan, and create a wealth of reports. Not only that but you have unlimited client access for clientst to be able to log and view their own bugs as well as track the progress of their project, granting specific permissions and allowing full transparency. I also like the ability to customise reports and fields, import project and export reports in csv, pdf and msproject formats. The support team are incredibly responsive in addition to the articles and forums within the help centre. On a daily basis I use it to plan projects, allocating estimated hours per task, check progress of a project, check the resource availability, and calculate risks.

Cons: With each release improvements are made, but whenever there is a release the system can be a little buggy, but is usually resolved very quickly and tickets are dealt with promptly.

Pros: Web based tool, Gantt Charting feature, custom workflow creation, scales well (we have a lot of projects in there).

Cons: Can be a little laggy at times (we host our own server, so that could be part of it). Interface changes have been confusing at times. For the custom workflows, it would be better to have a graphical representation (i.e. flowchart format).

Overall: We have used Celoxis for nearly 6 years and it has continued to be improved and polished. We use it for primarily for project management, time-tracking, expense tracking, and some of our workflow processes. Celoxis personnel have always been very good about helping through upgrades and other technical questions.

While there is a little bit of a learning curve, I would highly recommend this tool as a lower cost, yet fuller featured product in comparison to Microsoft Project, which still seems to be tool of choice for most PM's.

Recommendations to other buyers: When taking on PM tool, especially this one, it makes sense to get as many users into the system as possible. This will take a significant investment of time, but it pays off down the road.

Pros: Time tracking is very simple as well. It would be great if the time sheet automatically saved like everything else on the platform. It is a bit annoying when you track your time for the day, edit one field and then it deletes all of your content because you didn't save it before editing.

Cons: The interface. The design could be nicer, it's a bit overwhelming at times. Also, bug/ issue tracking is not the greatest. It would be nice if it worked more like Jira or if the platform could connect with Jira.

Overall: The highly customized dashboard with different views are great. There is various data you can add to to your dashboard, projects, reports etc. to tailor your view to what matters most to you. Time tracking is very simple as well.

Hello Prateek,
Thank you for your review.
Our timesheets display an "unsaved data" warning when you try to close them or navigate away before saving or submitting your changes.
We are also working on further improving timesheets. We will take in your inputs and suggestions.
We are also working on improving integrations such as with Jira.

Thanks again for your comments!

Comments: here are many great things about Celoxis, but to me the following stand out above all



1) Thorough replication of MS Project functionality.

Most competitors take simplistic approach to project plans, but for us this was not an option as out project plans initiated in MS Project are extremely detailed. The fact that Celoxis handles all the data and does it with ease was the number one reason we chose this tool.



2) Performance

Our largest project Plan to date has 5000 lines - more than enough to make other tools choke. Not so with Celoxis. Performance is adequate, and they improve it from version to version. In the beginning I was concerned that the project managers will be slowed down when working with Celoxis project plans, comparing to their workflow in MS Project, but all these concerns disappeared very quickly. This is a very fast tool indeed; especially considering all the data it crunches.



3) Reporting

No surprise there as anyone who tries Celoxis comments on its Reporting capabilities. These are second to none. Essentially - almost everything in Celoxis is a report, and you can include in these reports any objects that exist in the system - users, clients, projects, tasks, documents, discussions, assignments, and the multiple attributes of those objects. All reports are sortable, filterable, and configurable for the personalized view. Charts are interactive. Object names are clickable, allowing for the quick access of any object listed in the report.



Note on the performance:

I have to add that the latest version v10.5 was the first one since I started using the system where performance went down. It is still good, but more of our project managers started noticing the lag when they use large project plans. Now, unless you have a super fast machine that can handle heavy client-side javascript with ease, you may have issues. I sincerely hope that this is going to be addressed in the future versions, and that the system will keep improving, as it was before v10.5. Truly, when performance lags, no awesome features can make up for its absence.

Pros: Celoxis saves us a ton of time. It gives us an easy way to report information and helps us make better decisions about the projects and their budgets. Prior to using Celoxis, our reporting was a manual and time-consuming process. Reporting required our managers to explicitly reach out to team members and other stakeholders, gather information, then document it. There was no timely communication and we¿ve had to always scramble to meet our `go-live¿ schedules. Now that everything is standardized and real-time, our managers are easily on top of open issues and can see when projects risk slippage. We can create KPI reports and dashboards for our management to keep them up to-date on the progress.

Cons: Their salesperson was a little slow to respond initially, but he was able to help me with a demo of the product and answer some of my initial queries about pricing and licensing. I felt the initial connect for a vendor was somehow missing, but with a fantastic tool that helped us achieve where we are today, I am certainly willing to discount that part for now.

Recommendations to other buyers: They offer a free 1 hour session on payment. This session conducted by their product experts gives you great insights into admin and security settings for your account. Make sure you avail that offer! It'll save you a lot of initial effort otherwise.

Pros: Easily locate what you are looking for. Easily identify estimated/actual hours...I am not a project manager and do not use it to its fullest, but what I do use, I find it very user friendly and quite frankly not sure how we managed without Celoxis.

Cons: As previously mentioned, the notification features does not work as it should

Overall: Have had a very positive experience with Celoxis although I am not too sure the notification feature works correctly. I cannot rely on it so I must go in and check to ensure nothing has changed. Also we customized one of the screens and needed to use the notification feature, but are unable to do so. Other than that - this tool is AMAZING!!

Comments: Our software development shop switched to Celoxis a few years ago and haven't looked back. It's ease of use for time entry has proven to make for much more accurate and timely time entries, and the project/time/task/resource reporting features are top notch. As a project manager, I used to spend hours and hours trying to get various views of project data, and Celoxis makes that much easier. Another feature that I feel sets it apart from other platforms, is the ability for me to create my own personal Dashboard where I can customize it to show the views and tasks that are important to me.

Pros: Customizable dashboard, Ease of time Entry, Great reporting features/graph views

Pros: The features and reports available. Allowing you to add hours for projects in the same tool as the project plan.

Cons: Saving and it relocating you to another place in the project plan. Collapsing and expanding but it not saving that.

Overall: The tool has a lot of great features to include a lot of fields for details of a project; however, I have had issues with saving and the project rolling back up to another line, so I am constantly losing my place. It is a very annoying issue with the tool. The tool often runs slow with saving and has some weird issues with using 1/2 days for the duration. I contacted the help desk and even shared a cloned project to have them fix the issue with saving and it relocating you to another place in the project plan but nothing was ever done about it. I never got a response. This issue really needs to be fixed. Additionally, when you expand and collapse items, the system needs to save that for the next time you open up the project plan.

Pros: What I like best about Celoxis is its flexibility in reporting. The reporting is so robust that it lets me create all sorts of complex portfolio and resource reports even on my business fields. It also has a clean interface and is very simple to learn. Celoxis is an excellent tool for time tracking, especially the weekly time sheets and the one-click approve feature. Resource management tools are also comprehensive in helping us track down resources with right skills, their availability and utilization.

Cons: Setting up security can often be challenging, especially with multiple roles and work spaces. To ease that out, Celoxis does provide a complimentary 1 hour session on Administration and Security best practices to its new customers. I¿d encourage everybody to sign up for this. It really smooths out your new software deployment process. Best practices, quick how-to's and product usage tips are missing. It would be worthwhile to include these in their Help center.

Recommendations to other buyers: My recommendation to those looking for a project management tool is that Celoxis is good. In fact it¿s the best in my opinion. However definitely use the trial period that is offered to you and watch as many of their video tutorials to make sure it works for you and your business!

Comments: I'm a project engineer at a manufacturing and engineering design firm and I use Celoxis more than daily. It can take few days to learn, but once you have it down it is by far the best platform I've ever used to manage projects. It is useful for project engineers and all the way up to senior management to manage small projects, programs, and employees. It really is an all-in-one product and I highly recommend it.

Pros: Frequent updates and bug fixes Inter-facility coordination Seamless timeline creation and management Hours tracking and analysis for large groups of people

Cons: I have no cons. In the past year, Celoxis has fixed all the problems I originally had with it (mainly bugs).

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a must-have type of platform for program management.

Pros: Very customizable, great Gant charts (almost every features from Microsoft Project), possibility to set different workspaces and grant different type of access for users, customizable workflows etc. Easy to use and friendly solution with clear documentation.

Cons: Despite new version, the design is a still considerable.

There is only one group of users and one price for it. It's easy to operate but we would be happy to see cheap users licenses with restricted rights one day (for example, users who can see only their dashboard with tasks and ability to set % of completion and time spent)

Overall: Our ICT team have been using it for four monthes and our project and functional managess fall in love with it more and more. It simplifies the daily routine significantly, especially for keeping projects up-to-date and resource planning. You may build every report you can even imagine and find a way to adjust almost every business process you have in your company in this solution.

Comments: If you're looking for software that hits the sweet spot for robust features, ease of use, and price, you cannot do better than Celoxis!

Pros: --Ease of use: When I first signed up, I was able to create two projects completely from scratch in under two hours. --Tech support is responsive: I noticed a feature that wasn't working the way I thought it should. I reached out to tech support who showed me another way to make the changes I need AND he referred my concern to the Engineering Team. Within 2 days they had made the change. --Features: Celoxis really shines when it comes to the project management features it offers. I love the interactive Gantt charts, the ease of making changes, and the ability to track budgets without information overload.

Cons: --The only downside is the lack of robust integration with Quickbooks online. While it does send invoices to QB, you can't synch other information.

Pros: Celoxis is simple to use yet a very powerful tool for tracking projects of all types. The flexibility lies in creating custom fields to exactly measure our management KPIs and dynamic report filters to slice and dice data as needed. Celoxis also comes with several built-in reports that accommodate almost 85% of our needs. We also created our own specific reports for specific tracking requirements. For our teams, they can see their outstanding tasks, raise inventory requests, log time, file issues and manage to dos all from a single web interface. We managed to get our lead times down by 18-23% and also improved cycle time and overall process efficiency.

Cons: Nothing really. So far our team and management is completely satisfied with the product and the benefits we have got from it.

Recommendations to other buyers: I¿d recommend Celoxis to project managers who want an affordable project management tool that isn¿t over-engineered and want your teams to stick to it.

Comments: Pros - The fully customizable dashboard is by far the most amazing feature of this software. In one place you can see everything going on with each project and customize it to show only those things you are interested in. The customer service is to notch. There seems to be a real person available to respond to questions 24/7.

Cons - The display modes and terms used are not always intuitive, so the demos are helpful. The weakest area of the software for my use, is resource load leveling. If Celoxis will incorporate some automatic forms of resource load leveling and enhance the Calendar view with options like allowing drag and drop or adding color coding to tasks in Calendar view based on the project they belong to or status, it would be a five star software package all the way.

Uses - Managing progress of scores of projects running simultaneously utilizing a very small pool of resources.

Thank you Shelly for the candid feedback.
Our product team is already working on enhancing the resource leveling capabilities. This would be rolled out in one of our upcoming releases this year.
We are also introducing "Split tasks" in our forthcoming release. It will provide a useful way to level resources by splitting tasks or by adding delay to tasks until the resources that are assigned to those tasks are no longer overloaded.

Thanks!!

We use it for Project analysis, billing and forecasting.

Pros: Its ability to download to other software and its internal report generation. For a cloud based software it works well.

Cons: Need even more facility to use external with Excel or Access. Would be nice if the reports would be a little easier to set up internally and you could get selected sums more easily.

Comments: I would like to review Celoxis from the user perspective to provide feedback from the people who ultimately need to use it. I present the pluses and minuses, with an overall assessment at the end!

If you want to use it for everyday tasks, it is easy to use and very user-friendly! If you want to use all the extra features (reporting, monitoring, graphs, etc.), however, you have to spend some time to play with this tool and familiarise yourself with it. I think that I am not aware of all of them, and sometimes I gave up on producing a report or a graph...just because.

The customer service is extremely easy to reach (I chat with them whenever I need it!), and they try really hard to help out. The language barrier might be a problem though...not every one necessarily speaks English, and they could provide quick manuals or FAQs in different languages.

Overall, I think this tool serves its purpose, and it can potentially be expanded and developed to cover other areas. They have what it takes to succeed!

Licia,

Thanks for your review. I have asked our customer success manager to reach out to you to help you out with your queries.
I have also taken note of your request for providing documentation and self help material in different languages. We will probably get to it due course of time :)

Comments: Celoxis is an all-in-one, customizable project management and work collaboration platform targeted for mid-to-large sized businesses. Some key features include portfolio management, robust scheduling, costing, revenue forecasting, advanced resource capacity/utilization management and custom apps.

The vendor¿s value proposition is that with Celoxis, users can get rid of multiple applications or spreadsheets to manage and track bugs, issues or risks, approvals and other workflows that are crucial to their project and organizational success.

Celoxis is a collaborative software that allows for project discussions and conversations on tasks/other work items including documents. With the activity stream, users can stay up-to-date on all conversations in one place. Full email integration support is provided.

Celoxis is fully customizable and integrates with third party products such as Excel, Outlook, QuickBooks Online and Salesforce.com. Support services include comprehensive documentation, access to an online community, email-based support, onboarding programs, and one-on-one web-based training modules. Celoxis is one of the few project management software to offer a choice of deployment: a cloud-based (SaaS) and an on-premise installation.

Very usefull and very easy to use.

Pros: The fact that you can have a shared space for managing projects and sharing the progress with internal and external teams. Also, the possibility of creating dashboards for overviews of team projects.

Cons: Well, there are some specific needs with our company but most of the time we opened tickets and they are solved quite quickly. The thing I think should really exist is a CTRL-Z option, when you make changes to a project and want to go back to a previous version, it isn't possible ... sometimes testing calendars is a big part of making calendar proposals to teams and it would be a great help.

Pros: Gantt edition is at its top, calendar publication is reliable, ergonomy is quite enjoyable, and at the top, you have a present customer service, which reactive for a feature we were missing (separate publications on vcal, distinguishing projects from tasks and events). That feature is to be coming, but such reactions are really enjoyable.

Cons: Name is not easy to remind, as it as no link either to Gantt, tasks, projects or something like that. That may have unserved its developer a bit. Really, not much to add here : think of it like a nice to use (dapulse, basecamp...) with omniplan or MS Project features. Yep.

Overall: Publications of the project tasks cleanly on each of our team member google calendar.

Comments: I really enjoy using Celoxis and the improvement it has made to documenting steps in the project management process of construction projects.

I have personally experienced some functionality issues with the site & the saving feature. It often gets really slow during certain points in the day. The details I log and progress I save sometimes spends several minutes before it saves...sometimes it does not even save at all & I have to redo everything I just completed again. It can really take a lot of time out of my day when this happens.

I worked with our internal IT group who resolved the issue was on Celoxis's end. I will have to try working with tech support on this issue, but I really haven't had time to make contact with them during my busy work week.... I wish we still had the chat tech support feature which was only given to us for a trial period..... It would have been much more effective at resolving my concerns with the product

Pros: My company has recently started to take off and we are now managing multiple projects and portfolios simultaneously, and with the rapid growth it has been a challenge to keep everything organized. I decided to ditch my age-old time keeping tool and started using Celoxis and I couldn't be happier! The resource utilization and capacity planning features have made it feature has made it incredibly easy to make smarter resourcing decisions across all of our projects. I also love the fantastic visibility of this platform which allows me to spot potential labor and revenue issues that before would have gone unnoticed. Celoxis is incredibly user friendly, and if for some reason you ever run into trouble, there is amazing customer support that will help you through anything you need.

Cons: Integration could be stronger for calendar and events. Currently I can only export my events to Outlook.

Recommendations to other buyers: Celoxis has a very easy to understand licensing and pricing structure unlike the other products we evaluated. Make sure you have a checklist of your requirements and do sign up for their one-on-one demo.

I vote Celoxis!

Pros: It is very easy to use.

Cons: I have yet to find something that I dislike after 4 months of using it!

Overall: I have been using Celoxis for the past 4 month's to log time against tasks allocated to me. I am an instructional designer, so each project can have many milestones, and using Celoxis helps me keep track of all of the various milestones across various projects, and the time spent on each. It also assists management to quote clients more realistically as now we have the ability of measuring actual time spent on achieving milestones. Celoxis has clean layout and is very easy to use. The timer function per task is super handy as it allows me to focus on my task and let the timer record the minutes I spend on the task. When I am done I simply submit! A very welcome product!

Recommendations to other buyers: Nope, just to get it!

Comments: Celoxis has more features than we know what to do with. We are able to pull data, create custom views/reports, and fine-tune this program any way we see fit. We have a team of about 20, so a relatively small agency and each of our team members have found Celoxis easy to use and easy to modify to fit their needs.

At first it was a bit of a sensory overload as they say, with so many boxes and options it was overwhelming. However, once you create a dashboard that clearly displays the info you need, Celoxis becomes much more manageable.

For the most part, the Celoxis team is responsive when you encounter any problems or troubleshooting. It is nice to be able to reach them 24/7 and get a prompt response.

Overall, Celoxis fit our agency's needs very well. We are able to track our time, send out invoices, and see our sales pipeline all with one program. Before Celoxis, we had to use a separate document or website or tool for each task. Celoxis has absolutely streamlined our process and the way we communicate as a team.

Comments: I am professional services consultant managing 15-25 projects at a time and contributing on 10-15 tasks for other colleagues per week. I find Celoxis an easy tool to manage my tasks and workflow. The dashboards are great and I like the ease of time entry as compared to Salesforce.

Pros: Because all consultants use Celoxis it has become a great resource for information. You can quickly search for documents, projects, status updates. You can also quickly see a dashboard of your projects status and deliverables.

Cons: The Time entry filter size has created a problem for us, I'd like to see this increased.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give Celoxis a try. The tool is great and ever evolving.

Comments: Our software development shop switched to Celoxis a few years ago and haven't looked back. It's ease of use for time entry has proven to make for much more accurate and timely time entries, and the project/time/task/resource reporting features are top notch. As a project manager, I used to spend hours and hours trying to get various views of project data, and Celoxis makes that much easier. Another feature that I feel sets it apart from other platforms, is the ability for me to create my own personal Dashboard where I can customize it to show the views and tasks that are important to me.

Pros: Ease of use, reporting capabilities, dashboard view

Comments: I only used Celo for about three weeks so I can't speak to this software as much as I'd like to. That being said, it gets the job done and is pretty comprehensive. Ideally, they would make the reports more aesthetically pleasing and the dashboard would generate a list of projects that you frequent the most. Finding projects and tasks in Celo is like trying to find a Quentin Tarantino film that doesn't involve a mass murder scene. It just isn't going to happen. Pro: you can do a lot with this software Con: it's not user friendly

Hello Rachele,
Thanks for your candid review. With our latest version 10, we have introduced 'Views' for managing different projects, tasks and other work items. We have also improved our reports for aesthetics and performance. With @mentions, you can directly engage your colleagues by alerting them in the application. I hope all of this has improved your experience with Celoxis.

Pros: Visually it just works, I get the big picture at a glance and the reports are easy to use and display the desired data without the pain of ms project data capture.

Cons: Few issues with timesheet entry, it's a little clunky and I can't add new tasks while populating the time sheet a feature I had grown used to, but this may be purposeful as best practice can be clunky sometimes. Also, task entry is slow, but if this is the sacrifice for the end visual then it's probably a valid concession.

Comments: Celoxis is an outstanding product in terms of features, customization, and ease of use. Our organization moved from Word docs and Excel worksheets to Celoxis and were pleasantly surprised at how flexible an off the shelf solution could be for our dynamic project plans. As a customer for nearly 5 years, I can say that the efforts put in to expanding the feature set and enhancing the user experience are tended to tirelessly. The product has evolved significantly over the course of time with no signs of slowing down. The support team is quick to reply to support requests, in addition to responding to nearly all comments on the user forums. One of the differentiating features compared to similar products, is the capability to manage resources. This feature is essential to forecasting capacity and analyzing utilization. The product should be considered a top 5 tool in the industry.

Pros: It has a lot of features that can help companies manage their projects. The interface is user-friendly, so the users will not have a hard time navigating this software.

Cons: The QuickBooks Integration needs to be improved in terms of expense tracking. Nonetheless, QuickBooks is still accessible. The expense tracking is just not as automated.
