Comments: I like the tools already for many years. It developped quite nicely. Great job.
Unfortunately in our big company, we have internal tool, we have to use, which are by no means as good, but are manadatory, therefore, our great tool is not widely spread.

Anyway, thanks a lot

Have been using MPro for many years watching it improve as it has evolved. I use it every day.

Comments: I love the fact that the new version allows for unlimited notes. I tend to use certain features and have never tried many others. One of these days I will sit down and master those others. For the time being it meets my needs.

Comments: If you have a need - and can visualize a solution - you can probably build it quickly in ManagePro. More than a database, spreadsheet or project management tool, MPro capabilities are limited only by one's imagination. Almost EVERYTHING in MPro can be customized: data elements, screens, reports, layouts... you name it. It's this flexibility that gives MPro its power.

I've used MPro to create and run:
- GRC Compliance programs
- Risk Registers
- Performance Management tracking/ reporting (KPIs/ SLAs)
- Project and Program management
- Contract management systems

Web interface (MProWeb) is a powerful extension, and a very convenient way to extend MPro capabilities to the enterprise. Data mining and visualization is a snap, very similar to building charts from Excel pivot tables.

Library of default reports are very good, report generator can be bit tricky without practice.

Great piece of software

Comments: We are using the system to set our corporate high level goals along with the tasks and to dos assigned to people to acheive those goals. For our use, the experience is very good and we didn't experience any issues.

We are using MPro to "control" the construction of a new facility and relocation to it.

Comments: This has involved many individuals at different locations and different time zones and the software made it possible to work collaboratively. Most of the people had no prior experience with this kind of software but learned quickly. We have not used the financial features but identifying the great many tasks, the sequence in which they must be completed, who had responsibility and whether they were on schedule has been critical. Those who were skeptical at the start became believers. Many things went wrong - late deliveries of materials, slow permit approvals, and on and on. But, we have kept kept our priorities straight and kept moving forward.

Comments: Manage Pro has been getting better all the time. The fact that the company asks for feedback is important to the development and satisfaction of users across a wide scope in the business community.

Excellent tool to organize everyday tasks as well as keeping tabs on the "big picture".

Comments: I use the software everyday and honestly can't function without it. I call it the 3rd half of my brain as it keeps me focused on what needs to be done now by reminding me of all the project tasks and to-do's on both a short term and long term deliverable basis. This allows me and my staff to focus more on client satisfaction and growth without worrying about remembering every due date or specific details and expectations. The software keeps me focused and on track.

Comments: Pros:
MPro is a one stop shop. MPto is packed with features.
Robust. Great ability to collaborate with staff and project team. Love the drag and drop from Outlook. Project and task assignment is easy. The ability to configure MPro is the best benefit.

Cons:
A bit buggy after upgrades but issues are resolved quickly.

ManagePro is awesome, Support staff even better!!

Comments: As a long time 'organizer' by position, I have searched long and hard for a multi-tasking, event-planning, to-do organizing program that allows me to customize it to my personal preferences. I have been through a bunch of them (I won't name them here) but I go back to the '80's with these kinds of PIMs and this one has put them all to shame. I specifically started looking for an updated program that would allow me customize my team and projects in October. I downloaded roughly 5 different programs that had been recommended or suggested to me until I stumbled upon ManagePro. Upon researching it's capabilities I decided to give it a shot and I haven't looked back since. From the moment I started my free trial, I received unbelievable support. Walking me through the characteristics of the program, getting a sense of 'best practices' and finding their availability to assist completely accommodating.

Pros: Highly powerful, very customizable program with awesome sales support!! In fact one of their support team who I had been dealing with, went so far as to respond to me from her vacation in Hawaii!! Seriously, above and beyond helpfulness. Great program allowing for multiple views, of various projects, agendas, calendars, to-do's etc. I highly recommend this program and support team.

Cons: A little pricey, but very powerful and the initial cost is greatly reduced after year 1. The 'Help' and Manual are VERY confusing due to the incredible amount of options available with the program. That being said, the sales support team is incredible and available to the point that I've never really worried about the Manual's complexity. I highly recommend this product for all management types (with reporting responsibilities), project managers, organizational needs, personal organization, calendering, task management, etc.

Unique application platform that continues to mature with each release

Overall

Comments: I have been an avid practitioner of ManagePro over the last ten years. My initial reason to use ManagePro was based on the more than sufficient program management functionality associated with ManagePro that also catered for any incarnation of project governance frameworks as such positioning firmly positioning as a PM agonistic solution to all those engaged in project, program and portfolio management. As a result of ongoing use of ManagePro in addition to the foresight of Performance Solutions' own vision for the application, ManagePro continued (to this day) to evolve with a far more business and enterprise focus on the key success criteria of any business. Thus ManagePro has, and continues to retain, a firm focus on the essential KPI's of any business, of which PM remains a part. In short, ManagePro is an unique application platform that continues to mature with each release of the product, due to a combination of customer feedback and, especially, the unique perspective of the custodians of ManagePro who are especially driven by providing the market with a compelling solution to immediately assessing the status of any business initiative.

Comments: ManagePro has been and continues to be a critical management tool for me and my company. It has been key in optimizing cash flow and was critical during the years I was paying down the bank debt associated with my purchase of the company. The scheduling/project management function were keys to new product development. As the President and sole stockholder Manage Pro's ability to keep me in the black was critical.

Pros: Easy to customize for my specific needs. Their support function was understanding of my lack of computer skills. My goal was to just drive the software and let M{Pro worry about any bumps in the road.

Cons: Some of the functions were more sophisticated than I could conceivably use.

Pragmatic project implementation

Pros: Unmatched in its foundational grasp that life never goes according to plans. Simply, it gives the teams an electronic bulletin board where changes and decisions are posted via updates and to-do's (versus old premise of traditional project management, which tends towards a ginormous project plan that falsely assumes one can anticipate all elements and developments. ) In brief, it's a choice in emphasizing enabling, versus controlling.

Cons: Has elements of traditional project management in the GANTT construction and in resource management, though not all the mechanicals one would find in Microsoft Project.

Overall: Far better tool for management perspective vis-a-vis implementation, performance driving, and alignment. But there will be missing features for lower-level detailed planners acculturated to MS Project.
