Working Together with Oracle

What do you like best?

Oracle offers a platform for general contractors to bring construction management into one very easy to use program. Have subcontractors do their product submittals, have general contractors review them and have the architects review and submit approvals or changes. This software also hosts a wide variety of different products as well for the construction industry. From payment systems like Textura, to analytics and project management options.

What do you dislike?

My experience with costumer support has been very sluggish and seemingly not very helpful when questions do occur. The product is not very agile and does take a while to learn how to correctly use each software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When considering Oracle for Submittals and Project documents, I would strongly encourage you to look at Submittal Exchange. Keep in mind there are other programs out there like Procore or BuildingConnected with similar features. Oracle Primeveras Textura for payments is relatively easy to use as well for billing purposes, but easier solutions do exist.

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

This product is mainly used by my company to do project submittals and project payment applications. It is an easy to use platform once you have learned where to find each function. The benefits of this software compared to other software or no software I would say is ease of use/ everything in one place.

Primavera Delivers

What do you like best?

Primavera was developed by a team that understands construction. The software offers a variety of tools, from standard scheduling and critical path calculations to resource leveling. Primavera is a robust tool capable of complex calculations during the preconstruction phase and allows for easy updating during the project.

What do you dislike?

Primavera requires a decent amount of time allocated for training. and even then the system is not exactly intuitive. However, after you have been using the system for a month, these issues start to disappear. The other issue is that Primavera does not provide aesthetic tools for presentations but does allow for exporting your schedule to Microsoft Project where more formatting can be done.

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

We use Primavera for the whole construction process. During preconstruction, our superintendents use it to create a schedule and then update it throughout the process. Primavera is the perfect tool for taking their knowledge and making schedules for the project management team and owners.

makes managing client accounts incredibly easy

What do you like best?

i like that it's designed around Windows, but can still be used on a Mac. We have some devices that are company-issued that are all Windows centered, but still have a couple of project-purchased Apple products. it's definitely easy enough for us all to use, but count on still having to do a little bit of manual input (still saves lots of time though!).

What do you dislike?

it's definitely formatted around managing bigger accounts - we wouldn't use this for managing different projects under different clients. we can set KPI's but it isn't the easiest to view which KPI's belong to which project. something just a quick update would fix

Recommendations to others considering the product

we enjoy using this but still have to rely on our internal team to create our own documents. wish there was just a bit more integration!

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

it gives our company a way for different heads of projects/clients to contribute data to the same software which saves us lots of manual input time

Best Scheduling Software

What do you like best?

Easy to use and understand. Project management becomes easy with a software like this. It helps in generating reports as per the clients needs. We can make changes without breaking a sweat. Can generate Gantt Charts as per our requirement.

What do you dislike?

Print feature and settings needs to be fixed. There are bugs in it. While exporting the file the size automatically crosses 4-5MB coz of the bug in the software which has to be fixed immediately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its currently the best software for project management and once you start using it you wont switch ever. With minimal training anyone can start generating schedules on it. Very Easy to understand. Every function is there in the software.

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

We do all our schedules on this software only. Being in construction it becomes easy to manage a complicated schedule on primavera.

Great PPM software for mature and complex Enterprise environments.

What do you like best?

1. Overall the tool allow for Roadmap planning and manage small to large programs.

2. Ability to create plan template so PM/Team Leads can plan from template with complete SDLC like project with ability to customize for each project. Improves planning cycle and plan completeness for delivery.

3. Resource Planning is easy across all or portfolio of projects.

4. Ability to use to track and manage Business projects

5. Easy to integrate with Project Costing tools to manage CapEx projects and financial systems

What do you dislike?

For small/lightweight projects this can be overkill tool to manage projects. Keep the plan simple and repeatable for these projects and report on key milestones as an example (Can be overcome by using plan template for small/repeatable projects.

Learning curve for someone that has only used MS Project is a challenge. People that have used other PM products other than MS Projects has easier time.

Time to address bugs in application can be challenged depending on relationship with Oracle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Invest the time and money to train users on how to use the tool to improve the adoption and usage of the product.

- Reporting across multiple projects is limited in product for advanced reporting look into using Primavera Portfolio Management module. You may find PPM V6 meets your needs which we did as well initially.

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

Drive consistent project plans and metrics to manage and measure project progress. Also to plan Roadmap projects and define resource demand by skills for these project to understand skills demand to our current workforce.

Proper Project Management

What do you like best?

Oracle Primavera is straight forward and easy to use. Allows a lot of power and functionality without too much complication.

What do you dislike?

The interface has a rather old-fashioned feel to it. It's written for modern operating systems, however, can have a Windows 98 feel sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Oracle Primavera is one of the top names in the business for project management. I'd recommend it in a heartbeat.

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

My group uses Primavera primarily for time tracking purposes. We can easily enter our hours, as does other groups, thus projects throughout the company can be effortlessly assessed regarding who's doing the work and how much time is being dedicated.
