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.

The best thing about Total Synergy is the ability to take it everywhere. You are no longer shackled to your desk to look at projects. The other thing is dashboard - a summary of how everything is doing in a visual representation.

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.

Invoicing is proving more difficult than our previous CRM tool
