increased staff efficiency , better communication with clients and delivering projects smoother within budgets
I trailed around 7/8 different project management softwares over a 6-month period, the main problem was i needed both project management and resource management which proved really hard to find. Either one was good at one and not the other etc but finding forecast really dealt with all my needs and although its taken 6 months to get all the data in and staff using effectively, the benefits have been fantastic. Projects are running smoother and we can control the budgets better.
There isnt much i find wrong with this software and the team are really good at taking on board our ideas and requests, i think the scheduling could be improved a little, but the forecast team are always looking to improve on a great product and im sure they will continue to improve.

Jira integration is fantastic
Lots of work done to improve the cost tracking and financial/budget elements
Great communications and availability of Forecast team
Forecast initially catered for a very specific agency type business model that didn't fit with relayrs business model however through constant improvements and feedback the tool is getting closer to what is expected

It has features that I couldn't find in any other service. Such as being able to manage reasorces across multiple projects, but not just by task also in high level
Not fully "baked" yet. A lot of small bugs and missing some small nice to have features

This software automates a lot of things in our planning / controlling / time reporting.
If there are ever any problems, the outstanding customer support will gladly help out.
The API could you an OpenAPI / Swagger specification to make integrations slightly easier.

With Forecast we are easily able to plan our architectural projects and meet deadlines and stay within the allotted budgets. Forecast is consistently updating with new features and addons.
Forecast's customer support is one of the best I have ever had to work with. Second would be the ease of use for staff to help plan out projects and timelines.
Sometimes parts don't work correctly but they are quick to fix the issues.
