What is Celoxis?

Celoxis is a popular project management app that is easy to use and affordable. It is an integrated solution you can use to manage your project portfolios, workflows, expenses, time sheets, and resources, and improve client and team collaboration.

You can create realistic project plans with Celoxis’ scheduling features like vacation/holiday and timezone scheduling, resource work calendars, constraints, dependencies with lead/lag, and unlimited task hierarchy. You can also utilize your resources optimally and track bugs, issues, approvals, change requests and more. The company’s latest Enterprise Project Management Version 11.0 has improved significantly the performance and usability of the system, and introduced an array of advanced features such as new data visualization options (trend lines, 100% stacked bars, comparison charts) , scheduled reports delivery, card views, measuring actual and estimated profit margins and drafting cash flow reports, as well as custom fields for your task summaries. The new version will also arrange working items within a slide-in panel, and let you use faster and more engaging Gantt charts.

Overview of Celoxis Benefits

Celoxis is a comprehensive, web-based project management software designed for serious project management, apps (business processes) and collaboration capabilities. Its enterprise-class features, ease of use, and affordability make it an ideal choice for organizations looking to implement a project management solution.

Celoxis help users plan and manage complex and diverse project portfolios. You can prepare task schedules with inter-project dependencies, juggle resource workloads, and manage portfolio risks. Resource managers can track utilization across projects and also balance demand with advanced capacity planning. If you are using project financials, you can decide project or tasks budgets and even forecast billing. Teams can report time spent on various activities and also log their expenses incurred.

Celoxis is customizable to suit a variety of business needs. For instance, you can customize resource work calendars or apply different resource rates to specific projects. And you can choose to have users fill time on tasks not assigned to them. Report viewers can set their individual report customizations such as dynamic filters, columns and groups. Celoxis’ custom apps not only give you the flexibility to create your own apps, but also the power to customize predefined workflows  such as for bug tracking or risk management.

Celoxis is a good app not just for project managers, but also for teams and executives. It offers the features necessary to ensure tool adoption across your range of stakeholders. Managers can use the fast interactive Gantt to create dynamic project schedules and advanced resource management features for managing over-allocations or tracking workloads.

Teams get an edge over other tools by eliminating multiple software that they’d use otherwise. Celoxis lets them see their tasks, report bugs, manage tickets, or fill time all from a single tool. They also get relevant notifications to their inbox and can send updates directly even without logging in.  Executives get accurate and real-time information about their portfolios through a range of reports and charts. They can also drill down to individual details to take informed decisions.

Celoxis is available in both SaaS and On-Premise options. The SaaS version guarantees 99.99% up-time, while the on-premise option offers zero additional software setup cost with Linux and PostgreSQL.

What Problems Will Celoxis Solve?

Celoxis brings together management of projects, resources, issues, documents, time sheets, expenses, and collaboration in one integrated application. It also solves the difficult problem of “real-world” practical scheduling when people work different shifts, go on vacations and even work in different time zones. It also has an innovative solution to keep track of business processes (think bugs, risks, client approvals) with its “Apps” module.

Scenario 1: Real-time project portfolio summaries and profitability metrics

Managers and executives need real-time feedback on the projects and portfolios they manage and oversee. What projects are in the red? How far through is that greenfield project we initiated? Are we under budget? What is the client profitability on that APAC digital refresh project? Can I drill down to zero in on the problem area? How well are we aligned with our organizational goals? These are common problems that companies face due to lack of good and available data to make effective decisions.

With Celoxis, you can turn all your project and portfolio data into actionable insights with a whole gamut of data visualizations, drill-down reporting, multilevel grouping, and dynamic filtering. You can also create reports on all your custom fields including formula fields. All your project actions are mined real-time and presented in tabular and charting visualizations. This helps keep managers and executives updated at all time and also make well-informed and timely decisions.

Scenario 2: Utilization and availability of individuals and teams

Resource utilization, availability, and performance have plagued projects for a long time. Resources are typically assigned to work items and teams are expected to complete them in the specified times. However in reality, they may take lesser or more time due to conflicting priorities, unplanned absences, etc.  Also at times, a particular resource may be over or under utilized. This utilization may also vary from time to time and also may deviate substantially from the planned utilization. The capacity of resources for a certain skill set or department may also vary from time to time.

Resource managers typically deal with these situations day in and out. Questions remain unanswered! How busy are my resources over a period of time? How can I redistribute the workload across resources? Are any resources spending additional unplanned efforts? Which resources have time available for additional tasks? How do the resources compare with each other, in terms of efficiency of doing their work? How many resources do I need to execute this incoming project request?

With Celoxis’ advanced resource management capabilities, you can get all these questions answered. Managers now have the ability to estimate resource requirements, determine available capacity, track real-time workloads, determine the likelihood of completing work items on time, and even identify tasks where work needs to be redistributed. With 5 out-of-the-box tools for planning current and future projects, managers can get an accurate view of resource load, utilization, capacity and efficiency for better resource planning and management.

Scenario 3: Creating a robust schedule that packs all your real-world conditions into one practical and bankable schedule

Scheduling is all about time optimization to arrive at start and finish times for each project activity. With Celoxis’ advanced scheduling engine, you have got all your bases covered. It accommodates geographically distributed project teams working in different timezones, part-time resources, unavoidable absences, interim resource swaps, and even one-off exceptions such as teams working weekends to meet deadlines, all in one project schedule. Celoxis also supports resource assignments in hours. So, there is no more working out allocations in percentages. Celoxis also supports your time-constrained tasks with its Manual scheduling mode.

Scenario 4: Multiple work management tools to handle specific needs, lower user adoption, and higher implementation costs

Teams often need to interact with multiple “specialized” tools within the confines of their work activities. For example, a project manager while building the project plan, may also need to create a risk register. Team members, apart from working on assigned tasks, may also need to manage other work items such as bugs, issues, change requests, tickets and more! Organizations have two options: 1) to evaluate and use a “best-in-class” tool for each specific process or isolated problem, or 2) Switch to a more comprehensive and integrated solution. The challenges in going with the first option is obvious: steep learning curves for each specialized software, lower user adoptions, and worst of all higher implementation and integration costs.

With Celoxis’ apps, organizations have the power to easily create and manage well-defined, repetitive project and business processes or routines all within the comfort of a single project management system. Teams then have to use only one software, which in turns boosts user adoption. Since the data resides in the same system, all your other software implementation and integration woes disappear.

Since each enterprise has specific business needs, it is prudent for them to refrain from searching for a one-size-fits-all ideal software application. Needless to say, it would be useless to try to find such a system even among popular software platforms. The clever thing to do would be to list the various vital elements that require consideration such as required features, budget, skill levels of employees, company size etc. Then, you should do your research thoroughly. Read some Celoxis reviews and investigate each of the other solutions in your shortlist in detail. Such exhaustive homework can ensure you discard ill-fitting platforms and choose the app that offers all the elements you require for business success.

Pros:
There is no other product out there that can compare to Celoxis when it comes to the responsiveness of their support. They know their product very well and instantly provide you with answers and solutions. I am grateful that they are always there ready to help up when issues arise.

Cons:
While the support is amazing, it isn't really intuitive. With the recent version, I can't find a lot of features I use. I wish they could roll out with a new update that has a better user interface.

We are a technology service provider with offshore development centers and need to work on larger, and often phased projects. Celoxis’ ability to handle large, dynamic project plans is very impressive. The email alerts keeps everybody notified of their up-coming and overdue tasks.
On a scale of 1-10, I’d rate Celoxis as follows:
Highly intuitive and streamlined user interface – 9
Product’s features meet my requirements – 10
Company’s support in terms of responsiveness and query resolution – 10 (considering I had my own apprehensions with the support being based in India)
Ease of doing business with Celoxis – 8 (They don’t offer recurring subscription model for billing)

Celoxis has been instrumental in helping us get our projects on time. We are a boutique agency and experienced a sudden rush of projects last year. We realized that we had outgrown spreadsheets and about time to invest in a more robust software. Enter Celoxis, and things have changed, drastically. With Celoxis we are able to track all our projects, designers, consultants, and rest of the team in one place. We know what projects may overrun costs or schedule and are able to take preventive decisions. They also have an excellent knowledge base and documentation, where my team and I often go hunting for answers.
Moreover the product is being constantly improved with a some of the things I need are already in their development pipeline. All this really comes in handy when we want to customize or adapt Celoxis to our specific needs.

What I Like Best?
Resource Utilization & Capacity Planning: Considering prior to using Celoxis all of this was guesswork on the part of the Project Manager.
Customization Capabilities: Celoxis works wonders for my team & me, simply because I can customize it the way we need it to work. A lot of our projects have different billing and with Celoxis we can do it seamlessly. Their concept of “ReportRunner” is simply incredible. All I have to do is create one Report version for my team’s to-dos and using “ReportRunner” they individually can just see their own list. Wow!

What was my main concern about buying this software?
We reviewed about a dozen different products before zeroing in on Celoxis. It was the only one that could meet all our needs. We desperately needed advance visibility to potential labor & revenue issues, and we couldn’t get that under our old system.
