NetPoint overview

What is NetPoint?

NetPoint is a cloud-based project planning and scheduling solution that helps businesses collaborate to set project timelines, build schedules and communicate through a GPM algorithm-based visual interface. The solution provides toggle date modes, network logics and real-time calculations to help users build a schedule on the basis of real-world conditions.

Primary features of NetPoint include resource importing, resizable timescales, global edit mode, custom time-units, visual resource modeling, backward planning, target comparisons, activity codes, constraint flags, schedule statistics, benchmark settings, and more. The platform allows users to insert a date range and receive immediate visual feedback on any projects falling behind schedule. Plus, the platform comes with customizable geometries to represent mandatory network paths and position activity queues on the same line.

NetPoint lets users draw real-time milestones on a planning canvas to later import data from P6, Excel, or MS projects. The platform integrates with third-party applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Excel.

Great Software for Interactive Planning, Communicating and Conveying Project Execution Plan.

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Simplifies interactive planning. Easy to understand by stakeholders for their review and "buy-In" of the plan. Helps focus on critical and near critical path in addition to manage project floats. Great tool to simplify the complex and help upper management in decision making. Great tool for on the spot "What-If" scenarios. Real time and visual aid on impact on project plan based on changes and progress.

Pros
Easy to use and very intuitively. Great for interactive planning. Prefer software for upper management to understand critical and near critical path. Help team members to focus on critical activities and manage project floats. Easy to export data to Excel including charts. Easy to update and track changes. I used this software on a daily basis with directors, plant managers and execution leads. I will highly recommend Netpoint to anyone who has to work with planning and scheduling. Customer Support is A+! Fast response and issue resolve within same business day.

Cons
Inserting standards "Clip Arts" like arrows, lines, geometric figures not very intuitive and with no options like in MS Office products. Most cases I use a print screen in PowerPoint/Word for better comments. Resource chart and over limit not always easy to convey and understand.

A great Scheduling Software that will MS Project a run for its money

Review Source: Capterra

The best part about this software is that I can lay down schedules of multiple projects on one sheet and see if there are any overlaps between projects. In addition, it is great to make presentations to the board using this tool

Pros
The best part about the software is the ease of operability and the next best part is you can visualize the schedule which is great for presentations and gives you an overall view of the project

Cons
The things I like least about this software is that while being very user friendly and being great for presentations, it fails to solve the purpose a P6 might be able to solve. It does not allow me to have unique ID codes for activities, tasks etc. though being a great scheduling software it does not provide any cost control features provided by P6

My discovery of NetPoint

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I have been using project management tools for many years mainly for nuclear power unit maintenance outages which contain tens of thousands of activities manpower intensive and finely timed windows, also the need to get the unit back up safely and back producing power and earning money. High end scheduling tools were used that were very complicated and manpower intensive. But my main issue was how to show the overall project at a high level from a very detailed schedule. Well I found NetPoint, at last a program that could show an entire complicated project on one screen that was also a scheduling tool and could be resource and cost loaded. It was very intuitive to learn, but what I liked best was I was able to gather our entire project management team and executives in one room and review the schedule from one end to the other, in away that all in the room could follow and understand. Another great feature was the ability to very quickly do what if's and scenarios if you have ever tried this with a 20,000 activity project with all it's relationships you know how time consuming it is, in my experience management want quick results to these situations. This is a great companion tool when client specs call for high end software schedules but also for any applications that do not call for a high end software package. This is a great scheduling tool, I had searched for many years for a package such as NetPoint. Down load the trial version and take a look that is what I did.

Pros
Ease of use, functionality and presentation in a form all the team can understand

Cons
Not much, for its cost and functionality it meets most of your project management needs.

NetPoint Used for Upstream Oil & Gas

Review Source: Capterra

NetPoint is a vital tool being used to assist multiple offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico in planning projects and POB (Persons On Board). Asset stakeholders are especially drawn to the visual aspects of NetPoint and the ability to see the affects of moving activities on the fly. I have been using this program for over 4 years and I find that it is very user friendly. I was able to learn how to use the program during a 1 hour training session and a week later I presented it to a team that made the decision to use the tool for a 3+ year offshore program.

Pros
Ease of use & visual aspects

Cons
I don't like that you can't change the histogram. I'd like to be able toggle back and forth from # of hours to # of POB (persons on board). I'd also like to be able to overlap bars with the ability to bring forward and push back.
