I was recommended to try Comindware Project as a new, but quite promising tool for project management. The whole impression of the tool is very positive: excellent collaboration options for teams, individuals due to social networking platform. All the communication is in one place, and every conversation is stored and you can have a look at it any time you wish.
WBS is an excellent feature. Automated priority planning is a great help for a very busy PM. Document sharing is also a plus, as you don’t need to search for the necessary estimate for ages.
I would add risk management and budget management options to the tool.
Comindware Project is a new tool for me. I have worked with it only for a month. My first impression is that it gives a chance to allocate resources in the right and efficient way. I have a list of all the people who are engaged in the project and, using a drag-and drop principle, I assign tasks and see the amount of work given to every person and how well they manage the tasks. With the help of the solution I am able to make changes and delegate tasks to another person if there is a delay or some urgent tasks.
Another thing that struck me is the social networking option where all team guys can talk and discuss whatever they wish within a project. The tool is also integrated with Outlook.
Price is high from my point of view and there is not possibility to calculate the budget of the project.
Being an active PM with quite good experience I appreciated Comindware Project immediately because of its WBS and resource allocation capabilities that give you a chance to provide the most effective ever resource allocation ever for a project. Its planning features, I think, are the best I have come across in comparison with other tools I used before, because Comindware offers automated project planning. What is more – not every project management tool has native mobile apps for Android and iPhone.
This is a great tool, which managed to close the gap between task and process management and provided excellent collaboration facilities within a project.
When we speak about disadvantages, I would mention the price, which is, unfortunately, not low, but good things are not cheap.
Comindware Project is an online project management tools that is a new one on the market and we were attracted by this fact. We have been impressed by the simplicity and throughout design of all the main options of the solution. The product gives all the possibilities to run the project successfully even with minimum experience.
Mobile apps for iPhone and Android make the tool more attractive, because not every popular PM software has it. Every option is based on the principle of drag-and-drop, which saves a lot of time for planning, resource allocation, documents.
No budget management for projects; risk management is also absent; the price is a bit higher per user.
The most important criterion for me when I was choosing my PM solution was the online product and mobile apps of the product. I was astonished and amazed at the same time when I realized that some of the famous tools have no mobile apps. Comindware Project is both online and there are iPhone and Android apps for it. I work from home doing project in education and I travel a lot as well, and that is why the availability of such apps is a great advantage for me. .
The tool is mega simple and even the most inexperienced PM can handle it easily as the user-interface is well-designed to suit anyone. The software is integrated with Outlook which is an advantage as well
It is still expensive and I would reduce the price. I hope they will do it.
