AMAZING tool for Methodology and manual process EXECUTION

Comments: I have used this tool for 8 years and have stopped using all other related tools unless my customers use them. This is the only tool I have found in the market that helps improve methodology and manual process execution. The ease of use to develop a "methodology" or template was what I first found helpful. I still use it today to model out what is in my head. Then, to use the template to create a "project" is simple and straight forward. The fact that NO OTHER TOOL does this is ridiculous to me. With all the "standards" and methodologies out there you would think there would be a place to store them electronically and then use them for the appropriate project. I have used this for New Product Develop (NPD) Stage Gate processes, Software Development (SDLC - all types), New Employee On-Boarding (NEO), and even very large global transformation programs with 50+ countries needing to be rolled out? With any software there are always areas that we want improved as we use the tool more and more but with PIE, the only thing I want improved is my customers engagement with it since it would make the projects more successful!!!!!

Pros: Increases team productivity by over 30% based on my experience
Improves quality of project execution
Allows Executives complete visibility of all projects in REAL TIME without powerpoint
Provides Portfolio view with interactive Drill Down
Allows teams to collaborate in real time on anything within the project
Allows executives to jump into collaboration to answer questions and solve issues
Generates a list of "To Do's" for each team member to execute
Easy / simple to use
Electronic methodology and process capture
Process modeling is very easy
methodology continuous improvement
dynamic updates to active projects with methodology improvements
Ability to link to templates and documents into other tools like SharePoint, behind clients' firewalls for security
Inexpensive for the functionality
Ability to import and export to MS Project & Excel
The portfolio roll up is based on project(s) structures and not just a roll up of task lists. So, PMOs can actually see what structures appear to be working better for the organization. This helps improve performance over time.

Cons: Nobody knows about this tool so it takes a while for my customers to see the value Initial learning curve can be high for project managers because this is NOT a task list product like MS Project, clarity, workfront and others. it is a PROCESS based execution platform which improves performance over task management.

Comments: I have used Pie for 3 years now. I discovered Pie while researching project management alternative tools for Law Enforcement Managers. This user-base is not typically trained in project management. I needed a product that would allow the IT project teams to manage their projects, while providing an easy graphical interface for the managers to see the progress, status, risk, and issues on a particular project within their command. I was also looking for an application to serve as an institutional knowledgebase for organizational processes. Pie allows users to create reusable process templates and easily convert them to active projects was a true Godsend. I have implemented Pie in my IT project management firm. I have always been a cake-lover, but now I truly LOVE Pie!

Pros: Easy to use for those who do not know project management.
Easy to Administrate
Can import/export MS Project files
Provides a user contributed template community that can be used as a starting point for your project
Support is very responsive to customer suggestions & inquiries

Cons: I look forward to more & varied templates as users in different disciplines contribute to the community.
I would like to see more automated standard project management reports generated from project data.
