"Powerproject is a powerful construction scheduling software"

Comments: Powerproject helps us to automate the workflows and processes of our ongoing construction projects. It has great templates to start with and they constantly improve the platform with new features.

Pros: Powerproject has powerfull features for planning and scheduling the construction projects and it has great third party integrations. They constantly increase the capabilities of the platform with new features and integrations.

Cons: There is only one type of pricing plan which is $6 per user and unlimited features. There can be more pricing plan options with variable feature sets and price per user. Free trial period could be at least 30 days rather then 14 days.

"Invaluable help"

Comments: Overall really positive experience.

Pros: Very easy to use, the library and code structure is brialliant. The fact that you can reschedule just sections of the proramme or views helps a lot when you have to build a programme. The software is very powerful.

Cons: Not sure if this is feasible but it would be good to have the opportunity to add resources into the bar chart based on the time unit. For example if the time unit is in days, if I move into the bar chart it would be good to be able to allocate the resources on the each days. It could be that I have 10 people on day 1, 8 people on day 2 and so on and the software automatically calculates the overall allocation on the task whilst keeping the break down on the bar chart.

Hi Monica thanks for the great review. The good news is that your enhancement request is already possible! Take a look in the helpfiles for tips on working with variable resource allocations and how the Resource Usage View can also allow you to work to this level of detail. We also cover this in our Working with Resources training course, though our Support Team can also give you a few pointers. Good luck with your projects!

Cons: theproduct is really good just that the pricing structure can be discouraging, but nevertheless the free trial version has being helpful, i would recommend this product to my colleague at work,it is illustrative and good for scheduling.

"Powerproject review from Sale Group JW"

Comments: We use PowerProject for all our delivery programmes and resource schedules. they are widely used across contracting within the construction industry, which alllows us to interface extremely well with our clients progarmming.

Pros: The most useful feature that I use within this product is the logic linking and re-scheduling tools. It provides instant impact assessemnts from a delivery point of view.

Cons: Some of the formatting can be complex to correct if receiving files that in another Contrctors template format.

"A versatile and powerful planning tool- some thoughts from a long time user"

Comments: Powerprojects has been our primary planning and scheduling software for many years now and we have found that it integrates very well with other office software in use within the organization. We are excited about the BIM add-on feature now available as we believe this can extend the program functionalities especially at the front end of the projects.

Pros: The best feature within Powerproject is the graphical interface of the program and the output especially compared to comparative softwares. Powerproject allows for multiple options to complete each function and is very strong in its integration with other widely used programs. We find Powerproject to be intuitive and easy to use for beginners and still be scalable to the requirement of established users. We have regularly used the Enterprise licenses on large projects and have found that these greatly aid in collaborative planning and control within large teams. Recent introduction of additional features like BIM integration and site progress tracking modules are now helping planning evolve further and make the software stand above its competitors. The software integrates easily with other business processes within the organisation as the outputs can be read by other softwares.

Cons: Powerproject has a tendency to crash occasionally and hence stability is an issue especially when compared to other program softwares. The option of copying external links while copying and pasting a set of activities from one schedule to another is a funtionality that is missing from the software. Another general weakness of this product is the lack of awareness in the wider market outside UK. This means that we as users have to continually negotiate with other parties around the software to be used on the project. Better marketing of the product in the wider global markets and availability of better reader programs should help in this matter.
