The problem; why did you choose Seavus Project Viewer?

Our company has licenses for Project for the management team and myself (project coordinator) we use it to organize tasking for all the engineers. We however only need read/viewing access for the engineers. Finance was an area we were looking to save and Seavus Project Viewer emerged as a great opportunity in this area, including support for .mpp files for the MS Project version we used. We have decided to implement it, purchasing licenses for team members who only needed to open and view the project plans. The process was very straightforward – the engineers switched to Seavus Project Viewer without difficulties.

The solution; what are the benefits of implementing Seavus Project Viewer in your environment?

We wanted to implement a solution that had similar or identical look and feel as Microsoft Project. We chose Seavus Project Viewer because of its visual appearance which relates to MS Project and support for all MS Project views aiming in better analysis. This project viewer allowed us to view and sort the way that worked most like MS Project for us.

The outcome; what did you improve (results)?

  • Improved organization and productivity of engineers
  • Organizational collaboration improvements
  • Long term savings solution for a growing and expanding team; no additional MS Project licenses need to be purchased


The product works to our satisfaction, and delivered as promised. We’ll continue to use it in our company.
