About KeyedIn

KeyedIn provides a solution for managing projects, programs and entire portfolios – from a single platform. Ideal for both teams just getting started with formal PMO practices or those looking to advance their project and portfolio maturity, KeyedIn provides a comprehensive view of the status of every project starting from the top down and combining that with bottom up usability and functionality. Used by project managers, boardroom decision-makers, and frontline users, KeyedIn increases success rates and profit margins, enables better decisions about project selection, planning, and prioritization and optimizes resource usage across the entire business.

KeyedIn solution is ideal for 3 distinct use cases:

Project Portfolio Management for the PMO

KeyedIn for Embedded Services Teams
Embedded Services Organizations (ESO) leverage KeyedIn to help plan their incoming services engagements, forecast their demand for resources and capacity to deliver, manage the execution of service projects with accurate information and status reporting, and measure the effectiveness of projects for improved planning the next time around. ESOs working to implement software, track resource utilization against a fixed-fee agreement, or improve their margins leverage KeyedIn to help improve projects and meet their business objectives.

KeyedIn for Business Transformation Units

    We have really begun to enjoy using KeyedIn and have seen the benefits.

    Reviewed on 2018-02-21

    Pros

    I like that we can track project plans based on tasks. It really works well for our company and helps keep our projects on point. I also like that we can set objectives (deliverables) and dates for those deliverables. This allows us to see when tasks are starting to "creep up" on the due date and either add more resources or push the deliverable date out. I also like that if we do push the deliverable out, we have to give a reason and the SW keeps track each time we push the date. This allows me to go back when the project is done, determine which dates we missed and see the reaons for the delay. I think this will help us find holes in our processes and fix them going forward.

    I really like the resource management tool, but are still pretty new to using it, so my knowledge is somewhat limited. Thus far, I am seeing some promise and anticipate it will become a very valuable tool.

    We are also just getting started in learning the reporting functions, but so far they are able to give us the exact information we need. It has made my weekly reporting to our Senior Team much more manageable and accurate.

    Cons

    I don't like that there isn't a customer portal available. We also manage customer installs with this software and it would be nice to give the customer a link or temporary sign on they can use to view the progress of their project. We can setup a user, but believe it take a license and we have around 50 - 100 customer installs going at any given time. Managing those users would be a nightmare, so we are opting to just email them reports from the system.

    KeyedIn Projects - Customer Feedback

    Since making the decision to work with KeyedIn and adopt their product, the relationship with the KeyedIn team has been excellent; which made the configuration, build, test and implementation as painless as possible.

    We were able to request / have applied minor modifications to the "out of the box" package to suit our internal operating model and existing processes and we have thus far managed to roll out KeyedIn to all those that use it day to day as a project / programme management tool and feedback / adoption rates are very positive.

    KeyedIn appear to treat their customers as "partners" and are very flexible / agile and open to negotiation (which has made things easier when selling into our business). We never have an issue engaging with KeyedIn and their tech support team are quick to respond when we have technical queries that we are unable to solve internally.

    I would say that although this product is not the market leader right now, KeyedIn's flexibility, agility and desire to build the best value add / simple to use product (in partnership with their customers whom are readily invited to forward ideas for improvements) will take them to the next level.

    Pros

    KeyedIn Projects is very intuitive / easy to utilise and is extremely feature rich; with an excellent user interface and bags of potential for the future (given regular "releases" that introduce an array of major / minor enhancements).

    Navigation around KeyedIn is relatively straight-forward to get to grips with, and bottom up / top down views all seem to work seamlessly together.

    On screen dashboards and data "widgets" (out of the box) are very useful / neat and can be easily configured / tailored for different users / executives / role types across any organisation.

    Powerful data mining / search / filter features allow us to very easily understand how our portfolio is progressing (in real time) and gives you instant ability to drill down to the heart of any risks / issues and the user interface is such that anyone within our organisation is able to be presented with their own customised dashboard and focus on what matters to them.

    Cons

    A little more work is required to improve reporting outputs and ability to construct and run custom reports. However, major KeyedIn Project enhancement releases (scheduled in coming months appear to be addressing this), together with addressing customer feedback on the product and modifying where customer suggestions add real value across their customer base.

    Extremely Poor and Confusing User Interface that causes Repeat Work

    Reviewed on 2017-06-19

    Pros

    1. Has view on time expected per week and that accommodates for expected public holidays
    2. There is a view on what part of the process your expense returns are in (submitted vs approved vs paid)

    Cons

    1. Very frustrating user interface:
    - finding projects or areas to enter time can take more time than time entry
    - Interface times out if you don't move around regularly, but will continue to let you enter time or pages, but once you save it will all disappear at a re-login request. Lots of lost work due to this
    2. The process for entering time in a category the first time in a day is very different than when you need to go back and add more time
    3. Once saved (the only way to ensure your entry isn't lost when moving between pages), there is no ability to subtract time at the user level.
    4. Constant reminder emails are sent even if you have submitted your time.
    5. Expense page is confusing to add multiple pages of expense items to a single report and it is very easy to submit a report without realizing it, which a user has no ability to modify.

    We are creating a PMO within the business and using KeyedIn to replace a far simpler project planning tool. Hence the learning curve has been quite steep for both the project teams in terms of the complexity of the KeyedIn administration and for the project managers in terms of managing the change from running a simple plan to running a KeyedIn project.

    Pros

    Feature rich, graphically rich, intuitive user interface, with strong portfolio and programme capabilities.

    Cons

    Inability to easily manage task-based dependencies across multiple projects and surface this at programme or portfolio level, thereby making it harder to effectively prioritise resources across multiple projects
