Features and Functionality

Celoxis comes fully loaded with all the features and functionality you could want from a project management solution. Here are a few of the features that wowed us:

  • Project request tracking and project planning

Keeping projects organized is a major task for most organizations, which is why this feature is so important to the running of a business. Project request tracking lets you keep tabs on various requests from various sources including spreadsheets and emails, rank projects in a logical order, and customize fields, workflow, and KPIs. Then you can plan the projects according to importance, employee time schedule, and availability.

  • Resource management and project accounting

Another important feature, resource management lets you keep a close eye on who, what, where, and when. So, you can allocate tasks and resources based on availability, skill, and demand. Project accounting follows suit, allowing you to see profits and margins, revenue forecasting, and customize financial KPIs.

  • Project tracking

Possibly the most important feature for a project management tool is project tracking. How long is an assignment or a task taking? Are you meeting the deadlines? Can you reallocate resources for optimal performance? All these questions are answered more easily, thanks to Celoxis’ convenient project tracking tool. We were particularly pleased with the critical path analysis and RAG health indicators.

  • Dashboards and reports

Fully customizable dashboards allow you to view projects, resources, employees, and other elements at a glance and the way you want to when you want to. And tailored reporting tools make the cumbersome but vitally-important job of staying on top of your organization so much more pleasant.

  • Integrations

Most project management solutions offer external app integrations as a way of letting customers carry on with business as usual, and Celoxis is no different. What does make this brand stand out is how many integrations it works with. You can seamlessly connect to more than 400 third-party applications, so you can work with your regularly-used tools without having to switch from one app to another constantly. Some popular integrations include JIRA, Slack, Salesforce, Microsoft Outlook, Google Drive, Excel, Zapier, Trello, QuickBooks, Evernote, Zendesk, MailChimp, Survey Monkey, and iCal.

Collaboration Tools

The heart of any organization, team collaboration, ensures that all team members are on the same page all the time. Celoxis has great collaboration tools to make sure this is the case. Some of the tools we found impressive include:

  • Online discussion boards for immediate feedback and group insights

  • Files with version control

  • Activity stream

  • Shareable calendars

  • @mentions and notifications

  • Free client portals

Plans and Pricing

Aside from the fact that this brand is probably one of the least expensive options for medium and large businesses, Celoxis is pretty flexible in terms of pricing plans. There are options to pay by the month, by the year, or once every 2 years. What’s more, there’s the option to run the service on the cloud or on your own premises. And Celoxis will even let you start on the cloud and move to on-premise hosting later on if this suits your business needs. Here’s a quick look at the pricing structure:


Monthly Plan

 Yearly Plan

2-Year Plan


Monthly Plan

2-Year Plan

Price per user per month

$22.50

$21.25

The Cloud plan offers the same features regardless of what type of pricing structure you choose. Users will get the 99.999% uptime guarantee, free clients and virtual users, and 2GB file space per user. You can purchase additional file space for $10/month for every 10GB. All plans come with a 5-user minimum.

There's also the option to install the software on your own servers. This is a one-time fee of $450 per user. If you have the hardware and tech support, this may end up being the more economically-sound choice. The self-service plan comes with a year of Celoxis tech support (with the option to extend past the year for a discounted rate), free client and virtual users, and all upgrades automatically.

Celoxis has a risk-free 30-day trial, so you can test out the software. What's neat about the free trial is that it comes pre-populated. This means there are already projects and boards on the dash when you sign up. This way, you can quickly see what the software will look and feel like when you're in full swing with real projects and teams.

Apps

Celoxis has a terrific software application. It’s easy to use, lightweight, and connects to your other applications beautifully. During our test run, all actions were performed without a hitch. What’s more, everything works quickly, so productivity is at its best.

    • Desktop App

The Celoxis desktop app is clean and neatly designed. It recently got a facelift, giving the interface a bit more color and a slightly more playful vibe. The upgrade also includes the addition of a useful left-hand navigation menu, so now you can easily get to the main actions in seconds. And one of the main highlights of this app is that you can create customizable views, so you can see whatever you want on your dashboard, and erase the rest. You can also include widgets to your dashboard view or remove them with the click of a button.

    • iOS and Android Apps

Celoxis doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app. Instead, the site is mobile-optimized. For many users, this is more convenient, one less app to download and deal with.

Data Privacy

Celoxis addresses data privacy and security clearly in its policies, and that kind of transparency is appreciated in a world of convoluted and misleading terminology. In fact, Celoxis goes to great lengths to keep your data safe. For one thing, these servers are hosted on the Amazon Web Services Cloud Infrastructure for the ultimate in reliability. Additionally, Celoxis users enjoy state-of-the-art access, encryption, and logging safeguards. Access to the app is only through 2048-bit industrial grade SSL certificates that use Transport Layer Security (TLS1.2) protocol. Celoxis has features like request logging, intrusion detection systems, and 24/7 alerts to keep your data secure. To top it all off, the app runs on Ubuntu Linux.

What’s more, the integrations are seamless, so you always feel like business is flowing as usual without any annoying pauses or interruptions. Celoxis earns its place at the top of the charts.
