Market Reviews (4 out of 5)
Market analysts hail this software as extremely useful to freelancers and a certain category of service providers who generally place bids and regularly obtain online projects from freelance websites. It quite often becomes messy to keep track of all the bids and Service Desktop Pro helps to systematically organize all bids for ready viewing and timely action.
The manufacturers claim that “As a productivity tool, Service Desktop will add value to existing businesses by streamlining and integrating the various aspects of effective business management.”
But there is also some adverse criticism as some users consider Service Desktop Pro as matter-of-fact software that does no more than provide the basic options and functions to manage projects and nothing much beyond. The software does not provide advanced features to handle more complicated projects.
There is also the complaint that this project management software does not provide features like time, statistical information, and resource work load. Templates, though strictly not necessary, could certainly help implementing projects with greater ease.
