Really good software

5 4 years ago

Comments: increased staff efficiency , better communication with clients and delivering projects smoother within budgets

Pros:

I trailed around 7/8 different project management softwares over a 6-month period, the main problem was i needed both project management and resource management which proved really hard to find. Either one was good at one and not the other etc but finding forecast really dealt with all my needs and although its taken 6 months to get all the data in and staff using effectively, the benefits have been fantastic. Projects are running smoother and we can control the budgets better.

Cons:

There isnt much i find wrong with this software and the team are really good at taking on board our ideas and requests, i think the scheduling could be improved a little, but the forecast team are always looking to improve on a great product and im sure they will continue to improve.

Great tool for complex business model

5 2 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: Confluence, monday.com, Jira, Smartsheet and Trello

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 12 months ago

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 2 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: Accelo and BQE CORE Suite

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.
