What do you like best?

I love how seamlessly I was able to use this platform on my Mac OS system! Just Beautiful!

What do you dislike?

The only drawback, pun intended, is how long it took me to log in, that could have been my because I hadn't updated my Mac OS system to High Sierra yet. Still need to do that!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are on the fence about trying this project or looking for something more user friendly than Lucidchart or another competitor, definitely give ConceptDraw Project a shot! I am very pleased with the outcome and I am confident that you will be too!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So many benefits, the product/project feels well organized, modern and is very easy to learn and train my peers and fellow employees. .

"ConceptDraw PROJECT Overall User Experience"

What do you like best?

I have been using ConceptDraw PROJECT for about a year so far and it has been a pleasant experience. For me, I personally love the adaptability because you can use it across various platforms. I have a mac and in my work I can use it for a lot of features that I need; for example, it is good for visualizing designs and drawing tables, creating balance sheets, and tracking projects/overall project management.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit hard to pick up especially for a beginner like me because the instructions and guidelines are not too clear. However once started it is easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think that it is good if you want to complete multiple projects as well because it is easy to track. In addition, its use of MindMap and Diagram are good if you want to cover multiple aspects into one individual software. It is good for the professional setting as well as a personal setting if you just want to create projects or goals for yourself only. It is good for project management as well because it emphasizes time management and gives good output for the timing and strategical practices your company aims to have.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is good for all aspects of a corporation and I think that in a business everyone who has a role has the potential to use this software to its best ability. It can fit the needs of a variety of jobs as it can do so much. It is also good for visualizing tasks which is essential in a company.

This makes it easy to transfer the input between the different platforms efficiently.

"Once you learn it (The help videos are great), it is easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like being able to have multiple projects within one project and keep track of all with one file. Reports are easier to make from there.

What do you dislike?

There are some little things that I have a problem with, such as not being able to set all task heights with one command. When you have around 70 tasks per project and you are working on 45 projects, it takes a lot of time to reset the task height

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It will do the right job for you as far as tracking projects.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the capability of putting multiple projects into one project, it is easy to see the how the cash must flow. Working with multiple sub-contractors, that is important.

"Gives you the tools you need but nothing out of the ordinary"

What do you like best?

I used this software to create a flowchart at work and it was very easy to use

What do you dislike?

As I was creating the flowchart, it became difficult to create lines in certain directions that I wanted my chart to flow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using this to create my flowchart to become more organized with the company's structure of employees. It did the job but I think there are other programs I could have used that would do the same exact thing.
