What do you like best?
What I like best about Ace project is cost/value. The software is extremely affordable and allows you to perform basic tasks which is ideal if you just want something that isn't as in depth. It does have Gantt charts included so this aids with planning as well.
What do you dislike?
What I dislike about Ace project is not having the ability to go in depth as I would like to. And an important aspect which I find pretty weird is that it doesn't have a calendar. I am one of those who use a calendar for everything so this was a semi-issue for me. You also are unable to set milestones and pages are a bit slow to load but the speed is something that's easily fixable.
Recommendations to others considering the product
My Recommendation to other who are considering Ace Project is to take into consideration the depth of the projects you plan to do and how much functionality do you really need to complete your planning. Ace is definitely an affordable option and can get the job done but if you feel as though you may need a little extra take note of the functions you really need and what you can do without, then do your research to see if Ace will be a great fit.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We utilize Ace for small group projects because it not functional enough for in depth projects. It is pretty easy to setup a new project and they give you the option of utilizing templates. I love the benefit of being able to set times, due dates and levels of priority with tasks.
