The ability to create calendars and charts from a collection of projects is great. It's also nice to be able to track progress on a specific task or job in real time and know how close to completion it is. There's also some nice customizations available on the main dashboard on a per user basis."

    "Unique time reporting tool - customized to what we needed: As an Operations Management Specialist at a niche recruiting firm, we needed a unique online time reporting tool that multiple approvers (from different companies) could access. Since we specialize in the placement of contract CRAs, our clients need our contractors to split out their time to show whether they are billing time for site management, travel, onsite, etc. and Journyx worked tirelessly to build and customize the tool to meet with our needs. They also provide reports that our client love and it has helped them with their study budgets. It keeps contractors "honest" about their time as well. Also, the Journyx support team is VERY responsive - I have answers within the hour which is unheard of in this day and age."

    "Great product: As a systems administrator, I enjoy the Tenrox system itself. I would say of the systems I have worked with in the past and those that I currently work with, Tenrox is one of my favorites relative to my current business needs. Tenrox has a huge range of capabilities and options and its very easy to select and use particular components and ignore those that aren't valuable based on the need. it is also a well-structured system, and once you understand the basic mapping it is very logical. When our PMs and hourly resources are first presented with Tenrox they often feel overwhelmed at a glance, but the vast majority of the time after only a small amount of training they are able to use the system quite well."

(For us this is until 8:59 on Monday - before the 9:00 weekly staff meeting) You are able to see your hours per day so when it comes to payday you can have a fairly solid estimation of how many hours you have worked. This is very handy if you are an hourly employee like myself. You can very easily see how much PTO you have earned as well as it predicts what you will have earned by a certain time period - say you are planning a vacation, this is very useful and extremely helpful."
