Project management software



I have been asked to evaluate several project management softwares and have been looking at "Open-Air" and "Tenrox". Does anyone have experience with either of these products? Pro's and cons? Other suggestions?

We want to be about to track schedules, resources, budgets and have them automatically work with timesheet and billing data and hopefully be easy to use and have graphic output cabilities.

What software do you use?

I fill out my timesheets on Tenrox...that's it.

Other options:
Meridian Prolog
Buzzsaw (for file management)

We are using VisionProject ( It is a great software if you want to do several different things like Time Reporting, Document Managment, Project Management, Support Management, etc.
It is very easy to use and you can choose to run it over internet as a hosted solution (that's how we do it) or if you want to install it on a server.

A great PIM software our firm is using is Newforma. It is great for actual tracking of incoming and outgoing files (emails included) that goes on during a project.

Our office used Deltek Vision separately for the financials. There is a module that can be added that will combine the two, which we've yet to explore.

I recommend this as something to explore, even just for the frontend actual project management side (vs. the financial/scheduling backend).

wouldn't archioffice be another option? the two you're looking at are office management type solutions, no?

To throw onto the file management side-


if you are big on Revit and BIM-based coordination, ProjectWise (by Bentley) has some serious Revit tweaks that make everything else look like child's play. Conversely, this may also be overkill depending on what your typical projects are.

like Gregory I was going to suggest archioffice or make your own with MS access

I've been using basecamp to better manage my projects. My team decided to use this because it can easily be learned. It's simple and very easy to use. It keeps us track of our projects and they are easy to navigate since projects are loaded in a single dashboard for users to see it right when they go to the dashboard.

You can also take a look at some basecamp alternatives in this link and see if it has features that would help your team. Zoho-projects is good for creating and assigning tasks while freshbooks can do online invoicing for job costs, either of these two can be good.

Latitude can export user timesheets to an accounting software package like QuickBooks, MYOB or Simply Accounting. You can invoice job costs with its simple cash accounting system.

Graphs reports like timesheets, billings, active/inactive jobs, etc., can be quickly generated.

Prior to implementing the project management software my organization too did a thorough check of the pro's and con's of the integrated software. We finally closed in on the Microsoft Project Professional 2010. The user-controlled scheduling feature has provided a flexible planning solution for our project managers. There's also an in-built feature which provides a single screen for managing approvals for timesheets, project updates, and administrative approvals. The information captured in the timesheet and task management process can be shared with line-of-business applications too. If you wish to know more, you can visit Microsoft's website.

We use Replicon project tracking software, which is one of the leading time billing and project tracking software available.

I have experience working with Tenrox, its a good tool, but I was not satisfied with the packages they had.

Hi, Thank you for sharing your thoughts here. It is indeed a big help to me. I use Time Doctor and it is popular and effective project management software.

If you are looking for Project management software then you first of all it depends on the type of project because the software should full fill your requirement. If you are looking for Construction Management software then you should prefer according to your need.

For time tracking purposes, I use Replicon project time management software and definitely it is very pretty easy and hassle free cloud based app. One of the most simplest tool yet it holds great features that made us appreciate this tool for helping us in increasing efficiency and productivity of our business.

It can be quickly implemented without any hassles and also all reports can be exported to excel, additionally it can also be used with QuickBooks etc.
