Hmm... 15% for 'Other' right now. If you vote for 'Other', please post your preference here. I'll add it to the poll if it gets more than one vote.

I guess that the 15% OTHERS are in-house developed...
probably they don't want to share it with OTHERS too.....

My other vote is for the VPMi. Website is at "". Every other product listed above is expensive (with the exception of MS Project, which is a scheduling tool at best), is time consuming to implement, difficult for end users to learn quickly and adopt, and suited for large enterprise implementations. For companies looking to implement a solution quickly, at a far lower cost and have the flexibility to either implement locally or have the solution hosted on the internet, the VPMi is the perfect solution.

Hi Frank, welcome to the forum.

We had a discussion about Open Workbench some time ago, but none of the forum members had any experience with it at the time. Care to write a review about it in the review database?

I use Spider Project:
  • Easy to install.
  • Scalable versions available fom single user to multiple users.
  • Unlimited number of Portfolios.
  • Field size in most cases unlimited, even activity ID can be thousands of characters long.
  • Superior Resource Leveling.
  • Superior Resource Loading Functionalities. Most Notable partial assigments and resource production/consumption. Of course skill and the traditional are included.
  • Provides true Resource Float Values.
  • Can correctly simulate shift work contrary to others in the mainstream that claim theirs can.
  • Superior handling of links, for example any link can have his particular calendar, contrary to others that limit you so a few options and other to a fixed option. On the works formula conditional links.
  • Updates dawnload and installation equal to full size download and installation, about 2 minutes for download on high speed internet access and 2 minutes to install, well maybe less I am playing it safe.
  • Free demo version and a free viewer you can distribute with no limit.
