Hi everybody! I'm new on the site.
The reason I join is because our company is developing a Project Management software that's going to be oriented specifically for Architects, our target is the small & medium size studio.
Before you start yelling at me, I'm not trying to sell anything as I'm a developer not a sales guy, that's why I'm not going to say names or anything.
But I think it would be useful for you to tell me as Architects what features do you consider a must have for a Project Management Software. So far our soft has
• Budgeting : budget + expense tracking + cost performance (budgeted vs real)
• Document Management:
• Issue Management
• Project Collaboration
• Project Portfolio Management:
• Resource Management:
• Task Management
• Time Tracking
• Gantt graphics
Anything else you consider essential for a PM soft? It's going to be Cloud based,
The other thing we are adding to that is that it's not only going to be a PM soft but also will be like a professional platform were you will be able to download thousands of REVIT families, connect with colleagues, find jobs, etc.
Do you find that useful for you??
Well thanks to all the Archinect users, and I'm sorry if my post might offend somebody.
I think you're asking the wrong question... My initial impression is that you're focus is on the amount of things this software can do, rather than how well it can do those things.
When I read what you're proposing, it sounds almost like (ArchiOffice+Archinect+RevitCity). Would it be useful to have all these things in one spot? well, they already are, its the internet. Do I need revit families when doing PM? not really. Is it appropriate for PM software to have a job board? probably not...
If this is really about project management software, I would suggest that you drop the social networking and revit family stuff, and ask something like "what do these PM programs do, that our program can do better." There have been a number of posts recently about different software for the same, small to mid-sized firms, and clearly there has been a number of suggestions, each with strengths and weaknesses that people are weighing. If you can get that type of feedback, you may be able to fine tune your software so that it will be useful.
Thanks joseph! Great Feedback!
Still waiting to hear more!
Most companies pay for market research.
Well actualy we are not hewlett-packard or Pepsi that can afford a couple hundred thousands to do that.
I don't want to sound disrespectful, but if you don't like it I'm not forcing you to give me a feedback.
Our intention is to provide a service to the AEC professionals,
You can try proofhub. I am using this software for the last couple of months and it has all the features that you need.
What I would look for in a project management tool is:
1. Project Management and reporting
2. Time Tracking and Reporting
3. Task Management and Reporting
4. Bills Management
5. Invoice Management
6. Resource Management
7. And all regular charts and reporting methods
Moreover, I would like a tool that is adjustable and easy to use. Rigorous training routines should not be required to go along with the tool. I searched several forums but found no tool that could do all these, but the tool that I am using now, Replicon project management software provides me add-on'es to all these, which is quite useful.
Hope it was useful...
I have used many project management softwares like basecamp, ProofHub, zoho and to me ProofHub is one of the best project management tool I have ever used.
I am a freelancer and to manage multiple projects I have tried many web based project management softwares like basecamp, podio, zoho, proofhub having features which can satisfy your purpose. Currently I am using proofhub and I find it very user friendly and affordable. I suggest you browse the net and try some of these to get the best fit for yourself.
