Pros
Very responsive to questions and any minor issues have been very quickly resolved. Users find it useful and easy to use, and management are happy with the overview they get.
Being new to project management, I appreciate the ease of use of this software. It’s easy to navigate and allows me to effectively track essential information and provide status updates.
In addition, the software is visually appealing, easy to use and gives us the ability to add customized fields without the help of IT.
Cons
I've found that project management tools are either too simple or too complicated, which leads to a host of problems and workarounds. Acuity PPM has found the right balance.
There was 1 time (about 3 months ago) that I had issues with login (lasted maybe 10 minutes). I didn't report and can't honestly say if the issue was related to the software.

Easy to Spin Up!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Acuity PPM has been used in the classroom as part of a simulation for graduate students in the Lerner College of Business. During a busy semester where time is of the essence the intuitive interface enabled students to come-up-to-speed very quickly. Each student took the role of an executive team member. Executives could quickly rank and approve projects tied to strategic goals. Reporting is very...

Pros

1. The intuitive interface made it very easy to come-up to speed quickly. 2. Critical information need to manage and assess performance of a portfolio is smartly placed on screens. 3. Acuity gives you just enough but not too much. Larger systems are cumbersome and can be difficult to navigate. 4. Being able to export individual portfolios for additional analysis was very helpful.

Cons

We really like the product and don't find issues at this time.

Acuity PPM is perfect for anyone looking for a lite weight PPM solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

Working with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been a dream! He listened to our needs and provided suggestions on how to use the software to meet those needs. We have worked with him to import our current portfolio of projects and created a work intake process for new proposals. We look forward to adding a prioritization scoring model and resource management. Whenever we suggest new features or functionality,...

Pros

Ease of use. How easily we were able to fit our current process into the software and how much more portfolio visibility we gained.

Cons

I would love to have a more robust permission/roles set up.

Mainly Status Reports

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are doing mainly project tracking and this would include status reports, timelines, etc.

Pros

I will admit I really only use the software for status reports (versus advanced tracking). Given this I am not sure I can speak to some of the features of the software. I would say the status reports section is useful and easy to use. I haven't seen any issues with the software in this regard.

Cons

There was 1 time (about 3 months ago) that I had issues with login (lasted maybe 10 minutes). I didn't report and can't honestly say if the issue was related to the software. But otherwise I have seen/had no issues with the software.

Great PPM Tool - Easy to Use

Reviewed 3 years ago

Using Acuity is helping to centralize our project portfolio information, and it makes it a one stop shop for project information.

Pros

Acuity is easy to get up and running on - very intuitive. I really like the projects dashboard view (I use it very often), and the ability to drill down into the project details from this view. It is very easy to create a status report, and to refer back to previous status reports as well.

Cons

It would be great to have some additional features (although I'm sure you are working on them), such as: more text formatting in the status reports, ability to export the project list and project status, ability to sort the projects in the portfolio view, ability to easily see plan vs. actuals for dates and budget.

See your projects portfolio at a glance with a super simple user interface

Reviewed 2 years ago

Not only the tool is great but the support was exceptional, Acuity even accommodated several changes and personalizations (that latter on became standard features in the product), they were super responsive and attentive in helping us make the most of the tool.

Pros

I've used many software applications to manage and track multiple projects but it was not until I discovered Acuity that I came to the realization of how simple it can be to have a true "bird's eye view" of a complex project portfolio. Most of the tools in the market focus in providing Project Managers tools to control in DETAIL each project, but no tool that I know of helps management visualize and track at a high level multiple projects. I love the simple UI, the intuitive access to information and the ease of use of the tool.

Cons

It would be great if it could link and integrate with legacy Project Management tools, for example if a manager wants to drill down into a specific project maybe he could double click on a project in Acuity and launch a MS Project document where the full details of that particular project are presented.
