"I decided to go with Preceden because it was straight to the point, a simple user-friendly tool that makes creating timelines a breeze."Josemaria "Chema" Mora, Owner and project consultant, La Bodega de Chema
Josemaria is a Costa Rican who fell in love with American craft beer while studying in the United States. He returned home to San Jose with a mission: to boost craft beer availability and appreciation in his home country.
Today, he runs La Bodega de Chema, a beer education facility where visitors can sample local and imported craft beers, buy home brewing supplies, and attend brewing seminars. Josemaria also works as a consultant for entrepreneurs who want to open breweries and brew pubs.
From permit processing to brewing the first batches of beer, Josemaria helps these new ventures with every step of the process. "There are a lot of moving parts," he says. "Having a clear roadmap for clients is critical."
Like any good consultant, Josemaria prioritizes creating detailed contracts to show his clients exactly what they can expect and when. Including visual timelines in these contracts helps ensure that he and his clients are on the same page in terms of project scope and schedule. But without the right tools, creating such timelines takes a lot of time and effort. Josemaria was wary of being dragged away from core project tasks. He started looking for a timeline maker that was quick and easy to use, so he could spend his time applying his expertise, not designing contracts. He knew finding a tool that would make project information simple to view and understand was key to satisfying his customers.
When he found Preceden after searching online, he was immediately impressed with its ease of use. "I decided to go with Preceden because it was straight to the point, a simple user-friendly tool that makes creating timelines a breeze."
Since Preceden is designed to get users up and running right away, it has helped Josemaria meet his goal of spending less time on contract creation and more time on project deliverables. "The tool is very intuitive and quick," he says. "It contributes to a more efficient use of my time."
Josemaria discovered that while Preceden is streamlined, its organizational features are powerful enough to help him communicate clearly about complex projects. For example:
Preceden has helped Josemaria improve customer satisfaction through clear and precise communication—with minimal extra work. "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," he explains.
And Preceden is so practical and user-friendly, he’s found several other uses for the app, such as:
Some tools offer timeline creation as an additional feature but require a huge time investment to get started. But Josemaria says Preceden is different. Far from being a distraction from his real work, Preceden helps him get things done faster and with fewer bumps along the way. "It really has improved my organizational skills," he says.
