We have been using the Visibility Swimlane Timeline for a couple of years. By creating a variety of Swimlane reports, the tool has been instrumental to align cross-functional teams around the work ahead during crunch times. In addition, the tool allowed for targeted conversations around critical path, risk mitigation and workload evaluation. Ultimately, the tool has contributed to critical path acceleration and hence significantly increased the financial revenue of our projects.
The quick visualizations that can be generated (on the fly) is exactly the type of functionality that we need to evaluate key program milestones and expose critical path activity. I appreciate the flexibility of the tool and will look forward to continuous enhancements from future releases. Thanks for a great product!
"I am very pleased with your software. Our team was spending a great deal of time briefing our lead, using a large Project file. This past week, I sent out a hand full of slides (Swimlane Timeline views). Saved much time, and gave everyone a much better idea of how they (and their functional area) fits into the big picture."
"I have been using the Visibility Swimlane Timeline for a few weeks now and wanted to tell you this is a great piece of software! What used to take hours to create and update manually, takes mere minutes."
"A fantastic timesaving product that is easy to use and provides better senior management insight into the project resources & activities."
"Our organization has purchased a few copies of your application over time (love it – and I demonstrated it over the summer to a few Directors of PMOs at one of our BC PMO Community of Practice meetings over a lunch break)."
"Project Managers can both update their project plans, and create a presentation quality Swimlane Timeline graphic, all in less than 10 minutes."
"Once a Swimlane Timeline custom view is saved as a Style, the same report view can be quickly and easily reproduced week after week with a single click."
"The most powerful feature of the Swimlane Timeline is that it saves a significant amount of time creating management presentations."
"Our executives like the reports so much that our PM group has been asked to do all timeline presentations using the Swimlane Timeline"
"If you are manually recreating Visio's every time that you update your project plan, then you are wasting a lot of time and effort that could be saved using the Swimlane Timeline."
