Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Does anyone know of a source (sources?) of independent reviews of Planning/Project Management software.

It is difficult to get an objective view from vendors (of course) and individuals who tend to like the software they are most familiar with. I am thinking about reviews in magazines, for instance, that might perform a standard bench test and look at and compare what facilities are included in each package.

My main interest is relative to the UK construction industry but, of course, reviews or information from anywhere would be most appreciated.

Thanks

David

Folks, the Planning Planet Team is working on building a survey that will allow Planning Planet members to rate different software systems for direct comparisons:

Check for the e-PSO review on the Project Management Today website. It reviews our product which is e-PSO is unique in that it automates the flow of project and programme processes (workflow engine), stores all project activity centrally (knowledge repository) and takes the labour-intensity out of reporting by providing dynamic progress, risk and issues status information (information centre), at the click of a mouse (browser based). It is based on RINCE2 best working practise with flexibility built in. e-PSO could act as a powerful catalyst for introducing new processes, being electronically embedded into the project working culture. It makes it easy for staff to use by presenting the right templates to the right project staff at the right time in the cycle. That is reducing any uncertainty, the admin, the paper handling and the need to plough thru manuals whilst ensuring best working practise is adopted by all concerned.

Thanks for your reply.

I have PMT as a source but their reviews albeit comprehensive then to be rather old and once done tend not to be repeated to reflect the current versions.

Id be interested to see your report. Id be grateful if you would contact me at dbordoli@burofour.co.uk.

The most reliable source for PM software application reviews is Project Management Today magazine. They have reviwed most applications.

In addition, I carried out a review of the major players and have a full report.

Have a look at IPSO from Omnis Group. You can down load an evaluation version which is fully functional.

It has an evaluators guide which will only take an hour or so to work through.
