What Customers are Saying About Preceden

As a project manager I need to make a lot of timelines to communicate plans and progress to clinicians, administrators, and managers. Creating timelines in other tools just takes too long, and the results are often disappointing and difficult to update. With Preceden I can visualize a complex project plan in minutes, share it with my team and stakeholders, and keep it updated as the project progresses. Read More

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

I tried several other timeline makers and they were all very complicated. Preceden is extremely intuitive. There are a lot of project management tools out there but I didn’t need such a heavy solution for presenting our roadmap to the team. Read More

As a freelance musician, Preceden allows me to see all of my long-term commitments at a glance. I keep a timeline posted on my fridge, so I can easily gauge my level of availability for gigs and projects at any time over the year. Not only does using this beautiful tool prevent overcommitment, but having a visual cue in my environment helps me focus and prepare long before my upcoming deadlines.

My job requires me to maintain complete awareness of hundreds of current customer contracts and ensure that none fall through the cracks and expire unexpectedly. Preceden allows me to quickly and easily stay on top of every contract's expiration date in a very easy to read and customizable format. It saves me hours of time every month!
