It's better than nothing . . .

2020-12-03

Overall, this platform has helped our organization improve our document control and project management abilities.

Pros

The platform serves as a single portal of project information, thus streamlining and improving the overall effectiveness of project management.

Cons

There are limitations to customizing the look and functionality of the system. Mobile interface has opportunity for improvement.

VPO Works

2019-10-29

Nice to have all project documentation available in one spot.

Pros

Having everything on your screen at a glance allows for easy access to all project data when you need it.

Cons

Like all project management software, you have to input / upload everything you do if you want it to work best - this means someone has to input everything.......

overall an excellent product

2019-11-11

Pros

Its strength is that its very much a focused product on the administration of CM products. we have used other similar products and we prefer VPO.

Cons

Not sure its as ideal for program management (which is why I like it but we have other clients who have chosen other software because they needed a more complicated management tool)

The Right-Sized Project Management Software

2019-11-15

The VPO interface was intuitive and easy to use, and the support was very helpful.

Pros

Many other project management platforms are enormously complex in order to cover every eventuality or project condition.

Cons

We barely scratched the surface in terms of its functionality, which had more to do with the users and the situation than it did the software itself.

VPO provides the user with the ability to have all the project information located in one place with access 24/7

2018-05-04

If you are running projects today without a Collaborative Project Management System, you are wasting valuable human resources.

Pros

The biggest pro is the ability of VPO to be customized to work with a company's internal project management and accounting systems, VPO also allows a very good level of security so that people outside the company can only see select information.

Cons

I have found working with the Simplex Team that there are not any Cons regarding the use of VPO. VPO can be as productive as the end user wants it to be.

Awesome software for CM

2020-12-07

Workflow of submittals, RFIs, and potential changes is much simpler through VPO and I like having all my documents and reports in a single place for everyone to access.

Pros

As a CM group, we need particular workflows and modules for our work that a Contractor or a Developer wouldn't have.

Cons

The nice thing is that now that I have my template set up how I like it, making new projects is as simple as clicking a few buttons and VPO will create a new project based on my custom project template.

Valuable Cloud-Based Management Solution

2019-11-14

VPO even allows me to directly involve my clients and contractor - making VPO an efficient hub for all parties involved in a project.

Pros

VPO effectively reduces many risks associated with document control in the construction management field.

Cons

Those that are "tech-savvy" will have a much easier time adapting to the system than those who are not.

good experience with VPO!

2019-10-29

I'd be happy to be a part of another team where VPO was the chosen document control method.

Pros

Simplified document tracking, central repository accessible everyone on the team, easy tracking of to-dos and completed work, email integration

Cons

Mobile access was not as simple as the desktop app.

Well done Simplex. Great tool to manage small to large projects. Implementation can be customized.

2020-12-09

The risk of sitting on an important document.

Pros

The best construction management software I have used.

Cons

The risk to start the process and to use it for the first month. The best reward was it works great.

Needed it in a hurry

2020-10-26

We are reviewing a quote to implement the product internally for our company.

Pros

Our construction projects were already in progress when our company was hired to perform construction management. Due to a severe time crunch we had to roll out the software as we were customizing it.

Cons

Haven't found anything I would complain about. I will admit that we did not implement all features of the platform. We decided not to use some of the financial features. Some minor issues we have come across are with Microsoft actually (e.g. spell check).

Great for Organizing Data and Tracking Progress

2019-10-29

It allows the team to see a variety of data with a few clicks as well as keep track of who has the Ball in Court in the work order process

Pros

Extremely helpful in keeping track of work orders and other necessary data tied to the work orders

Cons

Simplification of report creating would be helpful

Cloud based Exclusive Project management software

2018-07-28

Pros

Access of Drawings and Project information for accountable time record and from remote workers to field supervisor, easy to upload work order, customization and track of it, making it life easy.

Cons

Reduce flexibility while using in Different OS, and system itself has repot-making feature which is some of the most redious process to follow.

Great Partners!

2020-12-31

We now have a tool that both our internal and external partners are familiar with which in turn makes collaboration on a project so much easier.

Pros

Very few IT integration touchpoints, which is what helped to speed up the integration.

Cons

Refresh rate - this is really a Sharepoint issue that gets better with the Modern Page experience.

Internet Based - New Product

2017-09-12

Keep it simple. In regards to dates - do you ultimately need start and end dates? Or just end dates (because after you end something, you're onto the next phase - correct)? It's an extra step we have to add - and update when schedules slip.

Pros

Could have been linked to my previously created Microsoft account - but for my coworkers and I - a completely different user name was created - simplification is key.

Cons

The updated procedure makes it easier to update project data - but selecting cells and moving the window around on the screen are tedious.

WSA VPO REview

2019-10-29

Everything can be handled in one location and we could set it up like our current file structure.

Pros

That everything can be contained within one area and can be access by many with limits access for others.

Cons

Currently I am a user via someone elses project and also a user for our projects, so i have two different logins.

VPO is great--just not on Windows 10

2017-09-12

I haven't gone through a project close-out using VPO and I'm curious how all of this documentation will be transmitted to us (the client) for our records.

Pros

The ball-in-court features are helpful, as are the notifications when something is posted or changes.

Cons

Sometimes directories of documents get truncated to just what will fit on a single page, leaving no way to access later documents.

New support ticket - very user-friendly and fast

2019-10-29

VPO has proved to be a great team with my Project Controls team.

Pros

I liked that I could easily figure out the next step without confusion.

Cons

When it recognizes me, it should auto-fill all the data so I don't have to do it again and again.

It is not a difficult software to learn.

2017-09-18

Overall this is a great value for the costs and the system much more manageable than the larger systems of this type.

Pros

It is relatively easy to learn and get around in the system.

Cons

The methods for reporting or creating a report is a challenge, but it isn't insurmountable.

Life Altering without undue pain and suffering

2019-11-04

we needed a system that houses all of the pertinent information, tracks issues, tasks, and change orders, actively notifies the team of changes and communicates clearly and concisely.

Pros

While we are all trying to do the same thing ( execute projects and make money), we all have a different way of getting that done.

Cons

Also learning curve, its hard to learn to do things the easy way when you have had to do them the hard way for so long.
