What customers are saying about Preceden

One of the greatest benefits of Preceden's timeline maker software is when I use a timeline in a contract for a new client. By including a timeline that shows a detailed scope of work in the contract, I set the exact expectations that I’m going to fulfill, increasing client satisfaction with my consulting services. The timeline creator and timeline templates are very intuitive and quick, so it contributes to a more efficient use of my time. Read More

I settled on Preceden as it is more about compiling information in multiple layers with a lot of capacity for text. I was not interested in a 'more show than go' product that looked like elementary students might use it. I am more interested in Preceden’s organizational features and storing lots and lots of notes. This is not a toy. Preceden's timeline creator is for serious scholarship. Read More

Marketing Manager, FullSave

I need to prepare timelines for programs and projects to communicate plans and progress to clinicians, administrators, and managers. Preparing timelines in other tools just takes too long, and the results are often disappointing and difficult to update. MS Project can create timelines quickly, but it's very difficult and time-consuming to format them in a way you can present. Preceden takes me just a few minutes to create a complicated timeline that I can share with stakeholders. Read More

Preceden's timeline creator makes it incredibly easy for a project lead to post an integrated timeline to the team. I highly recommend Preceden as a project management tool for anyone who values clear communications as a key ingredient to success.
