Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Parallax reviews

Overall, it's an improvement over Forecast (our previous tool), but performance and ease of use are somewhat prohibitive to rolling this out to the rest of the team for heavier adoption. Despite having so many users, only a few of the people on the team have been able to really use the tools effectively without intensive onboarding.

- Joseph W. Technology Director

The Parallax team is really nice, and I'm rooting for them! I think that in order to be more useful, we could use better communication around release notes (or some expectations about when/what type of communication we can expect). Sometimes I crack it open and there are new features that I find myself needing to learn on the fly. Cool to have new features (and mostly I really can figure them out) but some closing of those loops would be helpful.

- Vanessa S. Head of Client Strategy

I can already see the benefits of adding the Parallax system to our team. It will be very impactful for quick reporting and real-time data. The ramp-up to get the data in was really rough and my expectation was there would be a dedicated team on the Parallax side to help make the ramp-up easier. There was high-level guidance provided but not many proactive "best practices" based on AG's contracts until I brought them to meetings. Have a more standard approach to evaluating company's contracts and how you can easily add them to Parallax would help go-forward

PM3 reviews

Very positive. The Bestoutcome team have been very supportive through the initial trial to implementation and training. Looking forward to building on the current configuration and putting the system to the test fully.

- Iain C. Project Manager

As a business we are still in the very early stages of using the tool. Initial observations are that it is excellent on some things and other areas need much more work to make the tool intuitive to use. This can be resolved via more updates I'm sure. Support via the help desk and via my account managers has been first class and Best Outcome have shown great flexibility around changes in Licence application during the Covid 19 period when our Programme was put on hold. Management of updates is clear and very thorough with release notes easy to follow.

- Christopher P. Projects and Change Manager

Not all parts of the PM3 tool can be configured to local requirements but the benefits of a genuine long-term lasting partnership with the client and access to forums such as the Power User Group means that appropriate changes can be considered for future releases.

Pros & cons

Parallax

Pros
Great team to work with, strong future for the software
We didn't want to sacrifice user satisfaction for the new functionality
The Parallax team has been enthusiastic and helpful
Parallax has helped us break away from spreadsheet -based talent planning
It's more stable and reliable than our prior approach and promises to support us well as we grow
The team is amazing, the software is amazing, I literally can't recommend this enough
This is head and shoulders about its competition."

Cons
The URLs don't capture the state of the interface you're looking at (different insight views, date ranges, etc.), making them useless to bookmark and copy/paste to other people
This is made more complicated because URLs can't be bookmarked or copy/pasted to coworkers
The URLs change periodically, which makes them useless to bookmark
Often defaults to views based on quarter and I have to repeat efforts to set my filters
When the team and project sizes get larger, this becomes a problem
There are so many things & options, all in not so obvious locations
Graphs & tables do not have consistent colors across the board and it is hard to locate a key for what everything means."

PM3

Pros
PM3 have been very attentive (but not overly so), and the system itself is superb
Both service and product worthy of the 5 star rating given
The product has enabled us to bring consistency to our processes, improve governance and save effort on things like reporting
Your information stored there is always in safe hands
Support from Bestcome is so friendly to discuss and solve your questions, either it is from the user's perspective or from a manager's view
I am impressed about the automatic report generation, which saves me tons of efforts during project implementation."

Cons
Only minor point when trying to update past financial information was a little awkward
Changing and formatting reports very difficult
I couldnt change columns and rows
Apart from that I see no other fault with the software
The updating of newly input information normally takes time to refresh and sometime we see confusing information due to lagging of the updating."
