"A complex and felxible solution to project management and bug tracking."

What do you like best?

1. It can be used on own server, without cloud.

2. It's open source and free in standard version.

3. It has very intuitive interface.

4. It's often updated.

5. It has extensive configuration, possibility of custom fields definition.

6. It has a wide range of usage.

7. If offers many useful features: workflows (tasks statuses vs. roles), budgets, Gantt charts.

What do you dislike?

1. Despite the frequent updates, the software is still buggy.

2. It has only basic system of permissions e.g. lack of privileges on levels lower than a project like on work packages or custom fields.

3. Budgets management is very limited e.g. there are neither margin option nor possibility to use common budget for couple projects.

4. It still lacks a some system of automation e.g. possibility to write some scripts, define own views for all projects at once etc.

5. Working with many projects is very limited.

6. You cannot use custom fields in many features like cost reports or my page widgets.

7. The external API is still underdeveloped.

8. Lack of KPI's, resource management and employees efficiency.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

OpenProject is a good and trustworthy solution but it is only a tool. First you need to define your own needs, create your own processes and then decide if this software can fulfill your requirements.

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

1. We use this software mainly to bug tracking, project management and simply time based settlements.

2. With OpenProject we have greater control over our work and responsibility.

3. We have better communication with our clients and inside our team.

4. Consequently we can offer better quality services, reduce cost of products development, stay on schedule and keep costs and resources to budget.

"Not bad, but not very userfriendly"

What do you like best?

It keeps track of every change, and a lot seems possible in terms of commenting and task descriptions.

What do you dislike?

User experience isn't very good. Navigating isn't very easy or fast, and writing a task sometimes gives errors in both submitting as well as formatting.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

See if you really need it. Others might be more user friendly or time saving, so only choose this one if you need particular requirements that only openproject offer

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

Projectmanagement of a big IT project. Benefits are the endless nesting possibilities to keep things clear. Changes are being tracked and saved, so you can always see the change history. This time there can be no discussion between client and IT company.

"Las cosas gratis si pueden ser buenas"

What do you like best?

Esta plataforma tan sencilla a primera vista ofrece muchas posibilidades de personalización, lo importante esa saber exactamente como deseamos usarla y tendremos opciones de personalizaron muy importantes.

Lo que mas disfruto es lo rápida que es, se trata de un software potente pero muy liviano, en nuestra empresa la tenemos instalada en un servidor local y la velocidad de acceso a través de la intranet es insuperable, pero también se mantiene cuando estamos trabajando de un punto remoto o en casa y accedemos a través de Internet.

La facilidad para crear tareas y asignarlas a una personas así como crear paquetes de trabajo dentro de un proyecto es insuperable, la gran cantidad de opciones a la hora de crear un paquete de trabajo es de gran utilidad así como la posibilidad de asignar estados personalizados a dichos paquetes de trabajo.

Por ultimo también es extremadamente útil la relación que podemos establecer entre tareas con la posibilidad de agregar predecesoras de forma sencilla y rápida.

What do you dislike?

La única opción que extraño de esta herramienta es la posibilidad de crear cronogramas visuales al estilo "hoja de calculo" que ofrecen otras opciones del mercado, si bien ofrece la posibilidad de generar Timelines de los proyectos esta funcionalidad me ha servido de poco al momento de proyectar tareas que se realizaran en un periodo de tiempo futuro y que necesito visualizar en forma gráfica a modo de calendario con fases, tareas y relaciones entre las mismas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Para implementar con éxito esta herramienta se debe tener muy claro el uso que se le dará, la manera en la que estas estructurados los procesos internos es clave para poder hacerlo de forma correcta, adicional a ello lo mas adecuado es que sea un proceso de migración gradual desde otra plataforma de esa manera evitamos perdida de datos o darnos cuenta que no contamos con características vitales cuando sea muy tarde.

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

Actualmente se usa para gestionar la asignación de tareas de los distintos equipos de trabajo dentro de la empresa, con la posibilidad de hacer seguimiento al cumplimiento de tiempos, metas y estándares de calidad. Esta asignación de tareas abarca todo el espectro de acción de nuestra agencia desde recibir tickets de soporte técnico de clientes para pasar requerimientos a equipos técnicos específicos hasta el proceso de facturación, cobro y pagos a proveedores.

Adicionalmente desarrollamos una herramienta de tracking in house mediante la cual se realiza seguimiento de los tiempos empleados para todas las tareas operativas de la empresa permitiendo tener costeos mas exactos.
