This Was the Right Choice!

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: The overall experience has been overwhelmingly exciting, and the people who are involved with this software played a large part in this. The sales officials, support team, and installation guides have all instilled a sense of trust in me with WorkOtter. There were a few confusing moments throughout the learning process, and the staff on-call through WorkOtter really took charge of the situation for us. Every question we have had has been answered and in a satisfying way.

Pros:

There are so many things that I like about this software but just to name a few I would have to say for sure the cohesive way it functions with Microsoft Excel. We are at the beginning of our companies development, and so until diving into this program we have been using strictly Microsoft software to maintain scheduling, data, reports, etc.. The transition has been easy and enjoyable as everything aligns very well with our current documents and what other employees are comfortable using at this beginning stage. Another great thing I have discovered about this software are the interactive visuals within reports. These are great for understanding the flow of finances, the growth (or lack of it) that is taking place, along with the strategies that are underway that are (or aren't) making an impact. Now that I have this tool in front of me, I can better make decisions and in turn, provide more impactful data to the other people on my team.

Cons:

Nothing! It has been such a game-changer within our business in just the few months we have been using it.

Best Project Manager Tool Ever

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: No surprise charges or pressure to expand our licenses made the whole process much more enjoyable. They have an amazing support team that answered all my questions and helped us get started.

Pros:

I like you can customize templates based on your preference and the needs of the client. Also every easy to use, sometimes these project manager tools can be super complicated when they don't need to be. BUT WorkOtter isn't that way. I like that you can move the timeline on projects easily and you can see exactly what your team is working on. Overall best project manager tool I have come across.

Cons:

Nothing really, it as all been great and easy to use and my team loves it.

Comprehensive project management tool for all project phases

5.0 6 years ago

Pros:

The ability to plan a project to a very detailed or very simple level with all options in between. Very adaptable to the level of planning a particular product needs.

Cons:

Single-currency. For international projects it would be very impactful to be able to see fiscal amounts in currencies used, rather than having to manually calculate outside the systems.

Project Managers Best Friend

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Everyone we have worked with so far have been very knowledgeable, friendly and very eager to help you and your company.

Pros:

As a project manager I always look for an easy way to organize all of my daily tasks. In WorkOtter everything is customizable and extremely user friendly. I can create different projects and keep track of all the tasks in more than one format and I love that. Another feature that I absolutely is that I can export all of my reports in multiple ways, this software seems to be compatible with all other major platforms/softwares.

Cons:

At this point I have zero complains with this software. Its awesome!
