"Helps us increase utilization and improve capacity planning"

What do you like best?

We starting working with Precursive to help us improve our resource management and workforce planning. Previously we were in Google Sheets which worked to a point but didn't give us a proper forward view or any meaningful data. With Precursive we now have a resource scheduler that works well for our agile approach to planning and delivery. We can tailor both the scheduler and our project financial tracking to our business model and internal business language. This means it is really easy for our PMs and consultants to review project costs and margins in line with resourcing decisions. Being able to see the real-time impact of resourcing changes on margin is a huge step forward. Our Ops and Finance managers like the reporting and dashboards that they provide out-of-the-box - the ones on capacity and project margin/revenues are great - the fact that these are there when you start saved a lot of hassle for our staff.

What do you dislike?

We are early in the process so not a lot right now - we've asked for some items to be added to their roadmap which they advised would be included in Q3. They are native to Lightning which means they can add stuff in quickly. Would like to see more on the AI side which they also have on their roadmap. Still can't get people to do their timesheets on time but compliance has gone up.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great team, great leadership; pleasure to work with. Feel heard & valued.

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

- Better resource management and less stressed staff

- Workload equality across teams

- Mapped out our skills and technical certifications

- Improved utilization by 5% within 6 months of launch

- Reduced delays between closing deals and starting work by 1 week

- Saved 3 hours per on average on admin for T&E

"Awesome PSA Tool "

What do you like best?

We're a Salesforce SI that's fast growing and wanted a simple but functionally rich PSA tool - Precursive is Lightning native which is amazing from a technical architecture perspective as it enables our workflows and improves on them vs. us being dictated how to work, which is the approach used by other providers. We looked at other apps that are supposedly native to Salesforce but when we got under the hood weren't.

What do you dislike?

Nothing yet. They have some validation rules that we've had to change but that was simple to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Listen to their guidance on best practices to set up - check out their Agile Workforce research.

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

Clear view of our plan vs actual margin.

The whole team has reduced their admin time.

A single view of all our projects in a granular way.

Helping our HR team plan for hiring by us mapping out skills and certifications for our team.

Timesheets on mobile is also AWESOME.

What Workforce Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Integration and customer service"

What do you like best?

As the admin for the product I love the integration with Salesforce. Precursive's support team has been fantastic and one of the most responsive teams I've ever worked with. Kate is the best and is always on top of things. The time difference wasn't a big deal since I would often get my questions off to them early in the morning my time and they would respond back very quickly.

What do you dislike?

We ran into a few logic issues with the Salesforce automation but it was often as simple as a date not making sense on our Salesforce opportunity. I would like to see the implementation of a true PTO approval workflow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are using Salesforce then this product will be the one for you. Their ability to integrate into Salesforce, creating new jobs and assigning jobs to staff was a fantastic improvement over our old process and far better than other options I found.

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

Our old method of collecting time was manual excel files. With Precursive we were able to add in workflow approval, expense workflow, and time off tracking. My users also were able to use the Salesforce1 app in order to enter their time, which was a nice benefit for our employees in the field who are not always around a computer.

"Easy timesheet submissions"

What do you like best?

Precursive has helped us keep track of our growing team and manage timesheets. Before Precursive, it was an absolute nightmare to see who had submitted their timesheets on time, and check whether the information was correct. Now we can just run a report, and users get email reminders automatically.

It’s also great getting project and financial information through from Salesforce automatically via the integration.

Our engineers also love being able to submit their timesheets on mobile!

What do you dislike?

Precursive has to integrate with another app to generate invoices

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

Our data is so much more accurate and it’s saved hours of time reformatting information from spreadsheets. We’ve set up a system where projects come through to Precursive from Salesforce when they’re about to close, so we can forecast what skills will be needed before the deal closes. Makes planning so much easier.

"Precursive seems to be easy to navigate."

What do you like best?

What I like best about Precursive is that I can easily enter in my hours for the week, and it only takes a few seconds. This is nice because it doesn't take too long and distract me from other things I'm working on.

What do you dislike?

One of the first times I used Precursive, there was a glitch that wouldn't let me enter in a holiday. I ended up figuring out how to do it, but not after quite some time.

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

It solves the "business problem" of punching my hours in on a time clock. Its just as accurate and gives more autonomy to the employees.

"Neat system hides the complexity behind an intuitive interface."

What do you like best?

Real time data entry (no save button), the slick user interface, low bandwidth synchronous connectivity.

What do you dislike?

Lack of borders on time entry table, bank holiday recording, learning curve in implementation, some issues with availability, dependency on constant internet connectivity.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Design the team & project groupings before attempting to begin setting up

Ensure the design allows for scalability

Hold back from granular time recording until the process has been bedded in

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

Time spent on each activity provides an idea of the cost

"Pretty good"

What do you like best?

Ease of use for end users to create time sheets. Support has been very good!

What do you dislike?

The resource management functionality isn't very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Determine how important integration with SFDC is. If its your #1 need then this might be the tool for you. If not they maybe a more out of the box tool for you.

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

Tracking Users time.

Integration with SFDC is the key feature for us. We are heavy SFDC users and this integration help automate our processes. Once we got the reports/dashboards up and running they have been ease to use .

"Needs work, but shows potential "

What do you like best?

Once you have become used to the idiosyncrasies of Precursive, it is a fast and thus far reliable timesheet system.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is non-intuitive, at time infuriating, and not at all easy to learn. Finding your own records is nigh impossible, you cannot track your annual allowance of paid holidays, and needing to add "normal time" for normal work time ever single week is infuriating. It should just be there by default. Also, you can't submit future holiday notification, so it doesn't provide a heads-up and reminder to HR/management.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try before you buy.

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

Relatively fast timesheet completion.

"Director"

What do you like best?

I like that the cost centers have boullian search. It is fairly intuitive. Web based is essential.

What do you dislike?

Not being able to copy and paste a week. Not having a way to pull a report on a per project basis for total hours. Also a vacation/PTO tracker would be a great feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy to use. Nice solution to keeping projects accurately Billed.

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

We use this to distribute hours to different projects and cost codes.

"Attractive, easy scheduling tool"

What do you like best?

The resource view makes it easy to see who's available, and the drag and drop to extend bookings means we can quickly make changes.

What do you dislike?

The default week length is 40 hours, when we work to 39 - although I believe this is coming in the next update

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

We've saved time updating spreadsheets and managing timesheets. Timesheets are now submitted on time and with correct information that can be easily checked, so our data is far more accurate. It's easier to see when consultants are available, meaning we've increased utilisation rates.

Entering my projects weekly and my project "role" can be very tedious.
