Why would you choose Scoro?

We were browsing through the G2 website and found that Scoro has a 4.5 out of 5 rating which is pretty good and thus we wanted  to understand why users prefer Scoro and what were the reasons for switching from other Project Management Software:

  • Has a dynamic design thus making it compatible to use Scoro at any interface.
  • Great platform for pipeline management and reporting. Users consider the pipeline feature more intuitive compared to other CRMs like Salesforce, NetSuite and Sugar CRM.
  • All the parts are interconnected and it is easy to collaborate. You make one change to the task in the project view and it is automatically reflected in the timesheet view and tasks view.
  • Great time management platform.  Can view planner by weeks or months giving an overview of the upcoming pending tasks. Allows you to see time entries done for a particular task.
  • Extensive flexibility and customization of the platform. Customizable dashboards that allow you to view how the business is running from one single place. Can tailor many settings to meet the need of your business.

But it has its own set of limitations. 

Limitations of Scoro

Although Scoro is hailed as “a great project management and time management tool”, but, when it comes to many other functionalities that businesses need, we have come across a lot of dissatisfied users, who are either looking for more integrations or are planning to switch to a better Project Management softaware to get their job done more efficiently. A few of the major issues faced by users as per the G2 reviews are:

  • Hard to find information about the related client from a client view
  • Gets little messy when different tasks are completed and time entries are inserted
  • Sometimes a bit confusing/heavy to manage, on the planner view or the tasks report. A deep diving in the settings is necessary before being able to efficiently get started with the later. 
  • Performance of the mobile applications is very poor compared to its other versions,
  • Pricing model of this software is certainly expensive and unjustifiable: Unspecified charges are added as you go up the number of functions you are implementing
  • User also prefer more support options
  • Lack of synchronization of your contact list with some of the most important email providers such as Gmail. 
  • Steep in the learning curve so it is not a software to use immediately, it takes time to be able to understand all its functionalities and make the most of it.

Because of the price and steep learning curve, this Project Management software is definitely not recommended to small businesses who are jumping into a Project Management tool from spreadsheets or are in lookout for basic features.

Scoro Alternative
