Excellent system, impeccable support team

4 9 years ago

Comments: An excellent system, very recommendable for a project department to keep track of resource effort usage and capacity planning. Useful repository for all project information. The best part about it is the team, who work hard to fix your problems and also incorporate your suggestions into new builds and releases.

Pros:

Support team Constant revisions and build fixes Capacity analysis Resource management Timesheeting Customisable to your needs Reporter Project Register

Cons:

Not able to 'plan' projects as well as MS Project - soemtimes you essentially just want a checklist of very small tasks that for part of the plan but are neither a milestone nor large enough to constitue a new code. If you use the 'costs' part of the system, you would probably want to input this data twice; in Hydra and also in some other budgeting system/spreadsheet as Hydra is not yet sophisticated enough to handle the complexity of a project budget You need training in Crystal Reports to create your own reports, which you will most likely need

Review of Hydra Software V8

4 9 years ago

Comments: LCC ICT first implemented Hydra in 2005 and have seen the product go from strength to strength.

Pros:

- Easy to implement with regards to the technical changes. - The software has the potential to revolutionise the way you plan your Portfolios of work and how you undertake workforce planning. - Increased visibility of projects, what will be delivered on time and to budget. - The system comes with standard reports and you also have the option to develop your own reports using SQL / Crystal Reporter. - The consultation service offered by Hydra Management Limited is excellent and has assisted us in the development of a number of different solutions.

Cons:

- The cultural changes required within the organisation to fully realise the benefits associated with this software are more challenging than intially anticipated and require top down leadership to ensure success.
