This platform has amazing features which helps in automating your services

5 5 months ago

Comments: We were looking for a platform for both resource management and project management in one and after a long research we founded this one which is amazing to use and solved our problems very well. Now our company can easily manages resources and projects with the help of one solution and it is better to purchase because the cost is reasonable and it is far better than its alternatives in terms of features because it has a lot more to serve to its customers.

Pros:

It enables artificial intelligence work automation, project management, resource management, team collaboration, integrations, finance and billings and time and team collaborations. It gives free trail to use. Their support is amazing. it can be accessed from android or from iOS too. It enables Jira integration to use easily. The feature it provides does not have in its competitive software.

Cons:

I do not find as much bugs in this software but sometimes some features do not work properly and later fixed quickly. The scheduling needs little improved only apart from all these the overall software is perfect to use to automate your almost every service.

Great tool for complex business model

5 3 years ago

Comments: From day 1 the experience with the Forecast tool and the Forecast team has been excellent. Its clear that this is by no means a finished product which gives us users the flexibility to request new features with the knowledge we will be listened to.
I look forward to a long relationship with the Forecast team

Pros:

Constant and quick feature releases Listen to feedback and make updates based on customers needs Great performance very easy to use Jira integration is fantastic Lots of work done to improve the cost tracking and financial/budget elements Great communications and availability of Forecast team

Cons:

Forecast initially catered for a very specific agency type business model that didn't fit with relayrs business model however through constant improvements and feedback the tool is getting closer to what is expected

Alternatives Considered: Jira, Trello, Confluence, monday.com and Smartsheet

Switched From: Smartsheet

Reasons for Switching to Forecast: It scored the highest against all the criteria in our RFP process

Product remains immature, should pull back the aggressive sales

1 last year

Comments: Overall the product is somewhat immature, not usable on mobile, their sales tactics are overly aggressive, and they make cancellation difficult.

Pros:

Was good for budgeting and basic project tracking features.

Cons:

Not usable on mobile devices, and disappointed by the aggressive upselling and hidden cancellation terms.

Centreline Architecture Forecast Review

5 3 years ago

Comments: With Forecast we are easily able to plan our architectural projects and meet deadlines and stay within the allotted budgets. Forecast is consistently updating with new features and addons.

Pros:

Forecast's customer support is one of the best I have ever had to work with. Second would be the ease of use for staff to help plan out projects and timelines.

Cons:

Sometimes parts don't work correctly but they are quick to fix the issues.

Alternatives Considered: BQE CORE Suite and Accelo

Reasons for Choosing Forecast: Other software did not meet the needs of our office.

Switched From: WorkflowMax

Reasons for Switching to Forecast: Ease of use and great value.

Steep Learning Curve

4 3 years ago

Comments: Timeline management.
One software for the internal and client-side view which provides a lot of transparency to the project.

Pros:

I can easily see my upcoming and past cards, deadlines, project timelines, milestone plans, team members. I can easily change the status of the card from to-dos to in-progress to Done.

Cons:

It's not very easy to use and has a long learning curve.
