Overall: The use of Cora PPM has added a huge level of transparency to a number of hitherto 'invisible' processes that has afforded the realisation of benefits in terms of cost savings, greater productivity and more focused and reliable reporting.

Pros: The Cora PPM platform is extremely flexible and scalabe, and configuration and customisation is possible by a proficient user, allowing maximum use of the platform. The layout is simple to understand with minimal bloatware.

Cons: At times speed can be an issue, but this most likely more due to local internet speed rather than the platform itself. It is the problem that any cloud based software encounters from time to time.

“Cora PPM is indispensable when organizing projects and daily tasks”
Overall: No matter if we are in or out of the office, Cora PPM works perfectly with an integrated messaging to consult project progress. We add and design our virtual whiteboard in the way that makes it easier for us to work.

Pros: We organize tasks in groups and individuals to have each project present in a single page with drop-down columns, Cora PPM is an intuitive tool for workgroups to organize easily and quickly. With Cora PPM the progress is fast in your company's projects, it has a free trial so you can confirm if its features are what your company needs and adapt it to your colleagues to make their work and communication easier.

Cons: One of the disadvantages of using Cora PPM is when a project has many notes, because it is difficult for the whole team to visualize all the progress that it has completely and makes us lose the thread of the project we are working on.

A very good experience that makes a recommendation to others very simple and easy. The transparency and versatility of the platform make it a very strong choice. Coupled with an easy-going yet very experienced Customer Success Team makes Cora stand out among its competitors.

Transparency of process Configuration options particularly by the user themselves Versatility and adaptability of the platform Clear and friendly communications across the board.

The waterfall structure adds in additional projects that can confuse.

Cora PPM provides a truly exception list of programme and project management features alongside an unparalleled approach to strategic portfolio management which other products skim over or omit entirely. Where there are any elements of the product which require further work and development the team at Cora PPM respond quickly and have a lightning-fast development cycle ensuring features and fixes come thick and fast.
Cora PPM has an exceptional balance between configurability without sacrificing ease of use and user friendly interfaces. Other products veer either towards complete configurability, sacrificing the user experience or prioritising a perceived or actual user experience which does not work for all users.
Cora is perfectly balanced in the middle, hugely configurable by in house super users, which means we can make Cora do what we want when we want.

Overall: Less duplication of project documentation due to registers being highly effective for data entry, tracking, and reporting. Cora PPM portfolio reporting is excellent. Cora are very proactive in their roadmap for future development and enhancements which I mind very important. My feedback has been listened to and acted on which I value

Pros: Cora made the implementation process very easy. Working through a number of workshops with my team and I. They took into account our specific requirements, processes, and terminology and help customize the system exactly to what we required. The dashboard and registers are the best of any competing product in terms of ease of adding and reporting on them. IT has the best cross-portfolio reporting that I have used. All these features are very intuitive.

Cons: It's project planner could do with more functionality as it isn't as rich as MS project. It could do with more exporting options of Project plans.
