"It's a must use with Oracle Primavera they go hand in hand"

What do you like best?

PrimaverReader offers a better view on your project details, schedule and budget the same way a PDF can do with a word files just to explain it in a simple way. It supports both .xer and .xls file formats. It has advanced filtering and printing options. It doesn't have any learning curve or training costs. And most importantly it offers very powerful EPS, WBS and OBS views. It works on Windows, Iphone and MAC.

What do you dislike?

It's a little costly as it's a stand-alone program that is bought separately from Primavera P6. Printing options doesn't include a PDF option which is a must. Custom filtering is not as powerful as it is in P6. Also, grouping options are very limited and need to be expanded on as well. It doesn't support .xml files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PrimaveraReader is very user-friendly. I recommend it if you need a project viewer that allows users to open and view project data exported from Oracle Primavera P6.

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

When I was training last year in a construction consultancy office related to a H.A holding we couldn't do without it. As we used Primavera 6 very much and we needed to view the project details and plans in a simpler way that doesn't involve all the complexes we went through when we were creating it. So we would use it to simplify our project activities, schedule and grant chart. It worked well with our existing systems and would process without requiring any integration and without making any changes to the project database. It also allowed automatic sending of activity progress update (% complete, Actual Start Date, Actual End Date .. etc.) that we could import in the Oracle Primavera P6 in a few clicks with no error.

"Primavera Reader "

What do you like best?

you did not have to be a full blown Primavera expert to use and get benefits from Primavera.

You can import a baseline via an .xer file and then set the baseline to the project. - you could have different baselines depending on what reader wanted to see

What do you dislike?

no PDF option / printing was a challenge. filtering and grouping needs improvement.

Recommendations to others considering the product
