We used it in school and make our projects way more organised and easier for control! It helped us to know how the things are supposed to be done and what to expect in the future on our technical development.

Pros

That it is online and there is an app

Cons

Integration with other project planning software

Have started using GenieBelt recently. Early days but already using it on two projects with more to come. Very good for communicating and keeping audit trails for tasks, keeping record of documents and access to latest drawings.

Pros

The ease of use. The support is excellent and it seems as if the team are keen to bring on new features but only when they are as intuitive to use as the current features. We found this to be in contrast to other Project Management software that try to do all and become impossible to use.

Cons

No major gripes, in fact the few issues we have had have been dealt with promptly by support.

Intuitive and easy to enter data and monitor. bright and good graphics, first class telephone support. The idea of platform share is appealing. certain features need working on - printing and manipulation of print, ease of use of linkages and networking, entering repetitive tasks. Logo management. summation of complex programs.

Pros

Multiple party entry and shared visuality.
Relatively simple to enter data

Cons

Can't copy and paste groups of tasks.

Amazing project management tool for builders on the go

Reviewed on 28/01/2016

Pros

The staff at Geniebelt has worked closely with our team to ensure we are well trained and we get the most out of the application. The product itself is the first of its kind that lets our ground teams work closely with the office, updating status, planning and issues. It has saved our company thousands and is well worth trying if you want to improve your current processes particularly when it comes to an easy to implement, follow and update PM system.

Cons

There is nothing in particular any shortcomings the team has quickly taken into account and factored into future versions.

Simple, easy to use and has the required elements to use in the construction business.

Provides a good interface for planning and executing a project, and if trust is established in the group, Geniebelt is a fantastic tool to maintain flow and focus.

It's lightweight and versatile, and the learning curve is acceptable, especially on the mobile apps.

The plans are easy to read and scales well.

What you see is also what you get, there are no hidden limitations, and a superuser is not a requirement. Anybody with experience in building can use this and save time, even if its just for a simple visualization of a plan, file-sharing or monitoring progress.

I've been using Geniebelt for 2 years and it's the best all round program, if not the only one, for the building process including contractors and building owners.

For me the biggest quality of GenieBelt is how easy it is to use. The interface is simple and it is easy to follow the progress of the project.

There are still some small things that could be better but I know the GenieBelt staff is working hard to solve the problems. Their customer service is excellent and they are always willing to help and improve the program.

Response from LetsBuild

Olga, thanks a lot for the review. We also think GenieBelt is really simply to use. That's actually why we call it simply simple. We're always open for suggestions on how we can improve your GenieBelt experience, and glad that you share them with us.

I was invited to a Genie belt project by a client who wanted us to report on his project using this software. The software worked ok but is a bit basic compared to Microsoft project that we normally use and doesn't have the same level of functionality or Microsoft office functionality. Since the project has finished and I have no need to use Geniebelt anymore I am getting constant spam emails from them about user experience etc. I have unsubscribed from the emails but they keep contacting me. In short if you want a cheap and basic solution and you never intend to stop using it then this is highly recommended.

Thank you for reviewing GenieBelt, Pablo. We're glad you appreciate that it's simple and real time. You write that it's a con for you that you don't have any backups of your data. Did you know that you can export all your project data at any given time? Get in contact with us to hear more about this.

My bachelor thesis was on smartdevice apps for the construction industry. In my research I found Geniebelt to be one of the most valuable apps on the market. It offers great capabilities for construction managers such as scheduling, state reporting, communication, drawings and file management. All offered in a very user-friendly framework.
This app is ideal for managers to plan and get an overview of the ongoing activities on one or more sites, including quick communication and problem solving in collaboration with partners and contractors.
I definitely recommend construction managers to try the app out.

Pros

It is user-friendly and has a wide range of capabilities. Good for planning, progress overview and communication.

Cons

Depends on the participation of most actors in the construction project.

So far so good, a great tool to share project information quickly and easily with clients & architects on smaller projects with a lot less complexity (compared with Autodesk's Buzzsaw program etc)

The only critique I would make would be the suitability of the corporate imagery on the home page, which while jovial, may be off putting to clients outside of the construction sector and has caused me to hesitate when opting to share the software more widely with other clients as an encouraging tool of developing projects prior to Engineering involvement.

Many Thanks for the service you have provided thus far.

Yours Faithfully,

I used this with my client, consultants and the builder to manage the running of the project. All parties found GenieBelt very useful for sharing project document and reviewing timescales and project milestones to ensure the development ran on time and to budget. I can highly recommend GenieBelt.

Cons

Cannot think of any downside especially considering this was free and highly useful.
