´The Support provided by developers and Consultants could get from me 5 stars. However, the Commercial part is very weak. Simple questions related to Commercial things takes sometimes over 2 months to be answered although we pay an extra value for higher Quality.
Structure to manage projects
Instability, Performance, too many bugs, functions which does not work, etc.
Commercial part has to get much improved;
Invest to provide a best Performance in terms of reaction time and bugs);
More flexibility to users like in Gantt Chart and customization of fields

It's a good product, with real powerful features regarding PPM needs. Just need to evolve regarding the ergonomy, and the accessibility, no real mobile client!
Powerful features for project management
Old fashioned, not the kind of software we can expect in 2016 regarding the ergonomy and accessibility, no real mobile application. Interface heavy when you navigate.

Evaluated Genius as an option for implementing a new PM tool enterprise wide. Spent a month using the tool to consider its fit for business need and ease of use for an organisation that has immature PM standards.
Easy to setup.
Simple to learn / quite intuitive.
Fits with an immature PM culture where people have little / poor PM experience.
Does the basics of project management well.
Company are easy to deal with.
Generally a good product . Just lacks a little on the portfolio side (requires a better interface and more reporting to sell portfolio management on accepting the tool).
Great replacement for MS Project or spreadsheets. If you have very large or complex projects then you might get a little frustrated with the tool.

Thanks for the review. I'm curious how long you used the tool for - we have very string portfolio management capabilities!
