Pros
We are excited to be part of Propels growth, and our collaboration with your team has been a delight.
You can configure it to how you like it and how it is user friendly for new users.
Collaboration feature through chatter is awesome.
Cons
Signing off is an issue for many users. Causes frustration, lockouts, late training and lack of compliance as users just give up and ignore.
Our users have a hard time searching for what they need in the global search.
Hard to configure initially. It takes tie to learn all the background function to control the front end that the user sees.

Propel will LAUNCH You Forward in Your Workplace

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great program, definitely needed if using Salesforce.

Pros

Propel does just that. It "propels" the work you do by streamlining items in one system. It provides for easily accessed design reviews, change order management, and it integrates with Salesforce platform which is very useful if your company uses Salesforce.

Cons

It is somewhat reliant on Salesforce, and overall it has the ability to maximize tools but takes some training to understand.

End User Experience

Reviewed 8 months ago

We are excited to be part of Propels growth, and our collaboration with your team has been a delight. Propel has challenged us to come up with an amazing system to fit our niche needs and working to build custom solutions has been a great experience for our team.

Pros

Our end users have never been happier since we have migrated to Propel. Daily, they are thinking of ways to implement new modules or make improvements to the existing ones! Instead of complaining about an archaic system, they are excited to build our custom solution.

Cons

Determining what is Propel specific and what is Salesforce native takes some time getting used to.

Vendor response

Thanks for your kind words about Propel, Kelly! We are glad to hear that your end users are much happier now and we hope that our future innovations further exceed their expectations.

Easy and effective PLM tool

Reviewed a month ago

Having worked on other PLM tools, I find Propel is simple yet effective to use. It's extremely easy to use and implement, particularly if Salesforce is being used in the organization. I have seen new great features being added every release. It's been great so far with our Propel journey.

Pros

Easy implementation Less maintenance Salesforce integration is ready

Cons

Unstable behavior Nothing much, rest is good

Vendor response

Hi Rajesh, so glad you like Propel! And glad to know that the integration with Salesforce is useful to your organization.

Pros

Ability to customize, User friendly and propel support is super responsive

Cons

Searching capabilities. Our users have a hard time searching for what they need in the global search. For example searching by the keywords of the file name doesn’t result in the correct documents that they want to find

Vendor response

Thank you for your review Jemma, and glad that Propel is working well for your organization overall.
