"Good management Tool"

What do you like best?

I think that this product really allows users to be able to work together and get projects done in an efficient manner. Thankful that they give you a free two week trial to get exposed to it, without taking your credit card information. This is helpful especially for those who are new to management work and trying to consolidate the work plans for the group. All in all, I think that what they provide is really helpful and could be useful for any company who is trying to streamline their work task for their employees.

What do you dislike?

I think that in the beginning it takes awhile for users to get used to the tools and functions that it has to offer. I don't love the pricing of it all, but I do think that what it offers could be much more helpful if it were at a lesser cost. IF they could have a few more video tutorials that would be nice. Also, the platform seems to be a little outdated and could use a overhaul on a new platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good if your company is looking to invest in group projects. Has a lot of big company investment which is proof that the product works.

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

This has allowed us to be able to all be on the same page and create tasks for others to use and complete as the day carries on. This primarily allows us to streamline all of our work and attempt to complete all task given for each employee.

"Great product and great customer service!"

What do you like best?

I love how easy 5pm is to use. Everything is pretty intuitive, so the learning curve is short.The way it's set up also makes it easy to adapt to the particular needs of the business. And they have AWESOME customer service: prompt, responsive, and courteous.

What do you dislike?

The way the time-tracking widget always disappears from my icon tray. I'd think it was a problem with my computer, but others I know who use 5pm have reported the same issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the things I love about 5pm is that it's not overwhelming. Some other programs are so complicated and fancy it takes more time to set them up and use them than it does to do the work you're trying to track. 5pm is easy to get the hang of, so you can focus on what needs to be done.

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

Tracking multiple projects, clients, jobs, and contractors, and managing deadlines. Having one place to keep all the information everyone needs to get jobs done, in a place that can be accessed from any computer, means stuff doesn't get overlooked or forgotten.

Thanks for letting us know!

"Perfect for Task Deadline Support"

What do you like best?

The product is easy to set up by allowing the administrator to input tasks and project team member detail. I specifically liked the feature to add a start and end date.

What do you dislike?

I am unsure how to receive a deadline notification. I would like to be reminded of upcoming deadlines and not sure if that feature is not available or if I was unable to find and set up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used Trello in the past and I like the look and feel of this product better. The reporting functionality is perfect for sharing progress with the project team and keeping track of effort certification.

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

The product allow the project manager to set the administrative rights for the project team, thus allowing separate privileges for particular team members. 5PM is a great tool to keep track and report on projects, especially with a high amount of action items all due at different times in the project life-cycle.

"Support was amazing"

What do you like best?

Their willingness to provide customization for our specific needs is rare these days and very much appreciated!

What do you dislike?

We don't "dislike" anything. There are areas that would be great to see improved, and that is where the great customer service comes into play. They want to make their product better, so they listen and work with the customer. Anyone in this business know that it is a process. Nothing is ever perfect out of the gate. and once it seems like you're there, times and technology changes, and the strive to improve continues.

This question should be "What could be improved", not "what do you dislike".

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

5pm gives us the ability to keep our entire workflow organized. The customer service is truly amazing. They helped us customize the software to fit our specific needs.

"Keep it Simple and Productive"

What do you like best?

For a simple project management tool that is online, always visible and great for tracking use 5pm. When our project went from a development stage to a maintenance stage I switched from an expensive PM tool to 5pm and have been very happy.

What do you dislike?

I would like the ability to sort by multiple columns. I can sort by myself for example, but not by my tasks and then by date.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for something easy to use, not tons of bells and whistles for monitoring your project, this is excellent.

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

I am able to monitor our project no matter where I am. I can keep up with what my team is doing and can add documents, comments and even emails right into the software.

"Not bad for basic Project Management"

What do you like best?

It is easy to access and relatively easy to use.

What do you dislike?

I don't care for the reporting feature much.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The reporting is a bit clunky, but once things are set up right, it does make recording time spent on projects a breeze. It's relatively basic, but my company has been using it for years.

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

I manage my software trainings projects on 5pm from start to finish. I record notes, time spent, etc. It does help me keep track of my available time for each project. I use the web version, just because I can access it anywhere.
