WorkOtter has changed the way I manage projects

Quite frequently I am called upon to present timelines, budgets or resource constraints which makes it helpful to present data in an easily readable format to my customers or executives in a timely manner.

Pros

The dashboards are easy to create and full of valuable information.

Cons

There is no way to track time inside of the application via timer.

WorkOtter - Best Project Management Tool!

2017-05-30

This software keep me on track on all my projects that I am working on.

Pros

It is so user friendly, and planning and scheduling can be done in a jiffy with Resource Management.

Cons

I simply love the functions of WorkOtter and there is nothing that I can think of needs to be improve. However, it would be great if there are more than one language to choose from while using of the software, in the event that people from Asia would like to use or purchase the product for business.

WorkOtter from the Top Down or from the Bottom Up | Comprehensive Project Management Reporting

2019-07-12

Pros

First, branding matters: By thinking ahead to allow the end-users to make customer changes to color schemes, logos, images, and arrangement of views, the software puts the customer (user) first.

Cons

Examples: Project/Project Server and ALM.

Project management was never easier before! WO is a comprehensive and contemporary PMP solution.

2018-02-13

A professional project management tool that can be utilized to ensure a higher ROI.

Pros

The app comes with awesome features like exhaustive project planning tools, portfolio management modules, human resource allocation and collaboration with team members, useful professional reports and charting options and several utilities that make life easier for managers like me.

Cons

Though I have already praised the UI greatly, it could be better if it could offer users a few color schemes or skin templates to choose from to customize the interface.

Amazing project management tool. Very interactive and easy to use.

2018-02-12

Running a project has never been easier.

Pros

Reporting and resource management has never been easier.

Cons

Executives are spoilt by all the bells and whistles. There is no where to hide the bodies and try to mitigate before anyone knows. Cloud being the only option is problematic, as some Executives like to have the information closer to home.

Definitely makes my workflow easier. At various stages of a project I can easily adjust utilization.

2018-02-12

We're saving time and blowing our old time-consuming processes away which drives our profitability.

Pros

Scheduling the reporting outputs into weekly emails is a cool feature, and has worked well by eliminating standing meetings that previously took too much time to cover the resourcing status to various directors.

Cons

We really like the ability to configure the questions, fields and layouts of the responsive interface. It would be great if we could apply our own theme to the skin of the layout to match our branding for our internal users.

Its a brilliant software. This software provides all the project management tool in one place!

2017-05-21

A great one stop shop. I am able to be even more organized as a consultant.

Pros

I love most of all that at the clip of the mouse I can analyze the risks, cost and resource plan of my project....in addition, I can also see the progress of multiple projects.

Cons

That would be great for our company as we are a part of the government sector and we need tools like this software being used all over the country to assist Project Managers to run better projects in all public sectors in Jamaica.
