It is very easy to use, easy to add employees and programs - integrates with other Harvest tools.

I evaluated and ran a trial of this software a few years ago and it basically was a good tool for large IT shops that need to keep track of all their projects in one central repository.

I do not like that it isn’t the most user friendly, there isn’t an app available and I would like to have it on my hand

Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM)
GA
User in Automotive

In our workforce, PPM is mandatory and required, but nobody likes using it. It's bulky, it's slow, and the UI is not intuitive. Many features are hidden behind screens that are hard to find without proper guidance or training. Recalling timesheets is a pain.
