Project Management Software
« on: December 20, 2015, 11:20 PM »
Does anyone have any real-world reviews for project management software.  I used to use Merlin when I was a Mac user but now I've switched to a windows machine.  I have a small design/build company and I'd like to keep our projects organized and scheduled within one program.  I've looked at some construction specific programs (Builder Trend) but I'd like to hear some real-world reviews.

I'm looking for the ability to make Gannt charts, time tracking, and mobile access from my phone.

Thanks.

BuilderTrend

I am a custom builder and have used it for several years.  There are others out there and I've tried most.  It's not cheap but it user friendly, dynamic and very mobile friendly.

Thanks, I was impressed by the concept of it.  I'm glad to hear that it lives up to the hype.

Given Builder Trend's $1,200/year pricetag, I'll stick with MS Project.  There's also OpenProject

Apples and Oranges

Two different platforms, interface and users.
Festool vs. DeWalt
BuilderTrend vs. MS Project
Both serve a purpose and fit a market.  But are not even close to the same solution.
