  • 1.  project and business planning software - Mosaic

    Posted 02-11-2021 01:15 PM
    I am seeking any reviews from those who have used or tried the software, Mosaic, a business and project/staff planning app. Since their sales team contacted our firm I am guessing that many other small architecture firms may have also received their sales pitch. I admit that I am intrigued however making a shift in how our firm manages staff and projects will be a significant effort and commitment.
    I would appreciate to hear any reviews (positive/negative) of their software platform from those who have tried it. Alternatively if anyone has recommendations of other software platforms that work well, happy to hear those too. We are a firm of 14 staff and generally manage all of our projects and staffing through old fashioned Excel spreadsheets and QuickBooks.

    Versatile & Robust Project Management Software | WrikeI am an architectural specifications consulting firm with a staff of 6. We switched over to CORE by BQE for our invoicing and accounting package. They do have some project management features in it as well. However, it was not enough for our needs. Therefore, we searched and decided on Wrike https://www.wrike.com/, after checking into Monday, Hive, and a couple others. We liked the layout of Wrike and since we have a color-blind staff member, the color schemes work for her as well.

    I haven't used Mosaic.
    However we used Monograph.io at my last company and it was great. It handled time tracking, scheduling, resource management, project/staff planning, invoicing, reporting, etc. It is graphically oriented and designed by former architects. I highly recommend it.
