cammsproject Overview

What is cammsproject?

cammsproject is an ISO compliant, cloud-based solution for the tracking and management of business projects or portfolios. Providing support for teams and organizations big or small, the software supports PMBOK and APM frameworks alongside PRINCE2, Scrum and LEAN methodologies. Flexible workflows and templates can be configured to match most project requirements, with the ability to organize larger goals into more palatable tasks and prioritize resources accordingly. Progress is tracked by Gantt charts that provide a visual schedule for forward planning, while dashboards and reports offer at-a-glance insights into project tracking.

The system also adds collaboration tools and the ability to consolidate team communications within a centralized "Hub" where members can reduce reliance on emails and face-to-face meetings via an included chat function. Companion apps for iOS and Android mean that smartphone or tablet users can access the organization's data and track new or old projects from any location. Risk management features are also included to allow potential issues or worries to be defined when creating a new project within the system, monitoring how they manifest and mitigating the impact throughout the whole cycle. As an optional extra, users can add-on a time tracking facility and a staff portal for logging the hours spent working on projects or tasks.

An 'out of the box' solution that actually delivers

Ability to oversee a programme of projects in one place.
Decentralises all updates coming from the PMO and allows for stakeholders across different locations to provide real time progress updates in the one location.

Perfect for Managing Projects at Convex Capital!

We were struggling to ensure any proper governance for all of our projects while also allowing staff to remain flexible when undertaking a variety of projects. Cammsproject allowed us to create workflows for the different project types that we manage which we found very unique within the market. Governance was appropriately manged through the sign offs and the ease of use has meant projects are now being delivered more efficiently. The interface is slick, modern and encourages user adoption. The reports are very detailed and we have been able to filter the key areas to allow the information needed to be displayed. Great product, company and would definitely recommend.

Projects delivered on time!

We were struggling to deliver projects on time due to our workload and because we had no clear process and sight of who was undertaking specific tasks. Cammsproject allowed Minverva as an organisation to implement our PMO methodology into the system which meant staff understood the steps required for all of our projects. The tasks assigned to individuals and the sight staff have of these responsibilities has in my eyes resulted in projects being delivered on time even during our busy schedule. The Project Hub area is where I spend a great deal of time reviewing all projects and inputting updates, this is clear and logical. The dashboards, reports and portfolio view also allow for detailed analysis to take place which has been hugely beneficial during team meetings/board meetings etc.

Ability to oversee a programme of projects in one place.
Decentralises all updates coming from the PMO and allows for stakeholders across different locations to provide real time progress updates in the one location.

Pros

Highly configurable on the user end - there are too many 'out of the box' solutions on the market that require additional modules and configurations (which see the cost increase dramatically post signing of contract) for the software to add value to an organisation.
UI is visually appeasing and the system is set up to guide those from a non-PMO background (like myself) and be able to use the system with ease.

Cons

There is no one piece of software that is going to fit a businesses needs exactly (within budget), however, the fact that the system is so easily configurable from the user end (with no technical expertise required) definitely makes up for this.

The CAMMS/Sycle product is a beneficial tool for annual budgeting and long term financial planning.

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2017/08/09
Review Source: Capterra

Pros

Features we like about the Sycle software modules we are using;

The ability to collate multi-year project planning, including project expenditure types, detail on the source of funds for each project, project descriptions, justifications, and comments.

The ability to create and produce varied reports, utilising the Sycle database as a source for Crystal reporting, and combining into one document project descriptions and budget figures.

Project details are available to all users, not just finance staff.

Cons

Things we like least;

The response time on support calls is very poor; for example, a call logged in December 2016 not addressed in any form until August 2017, and the patch didn't fully resolve the issue.

Integration between modules is too slow; for example, changes made to a project in the Project and Program Management module take approximately 10 minutes to `flow through and update in the linked Action in the Planning and Metrics module.

Inconsistent `rules; for example, if we attempt to change the date on a project, and there are tasks attached, the system will generate an error message for us to amend the task before changing the date which is what we would expect. However, if we change the date on a project (no tasks attached), but there is information in the preliminary budget fields and source of funds, it will allow you to change the date (no error message is generated to say for example `Budget data exists). Although this might be seen as `operator responsibility, it would be beneficial if the system recognized when values existed and generated a message accordingly.

Pros

Interface, Workflows that can be created, customisation, chat feature, gannt chart. It has everything needed to manage projects effectively but still allowing flexibility when needed within a fast paced industry.

Cons

None come to mind.

It is reliable! logical in the way it has been set up and required very little training. The functionality is very advanced and there is so much more we can still do with the software.
