Pros

In summary, great product; great service; saves us time; makes us better at what we do; helps further separate us from the competition.
The scheduling feature of the program is actually very nice. It works great and is easy to use.
While any new software program has a learning curve, the feedback from our partners has been very good, and implementation has been better than expected.

Cons

The scheduling module is limited as compared to Microsoft Project but that is far from a bad thing. The RFP process is also easy.
Lost thousands of dollars due to Buildtools bug.
Check out the speed of the program. This is a cloud based program and we always have trouble logging on.
