What Other Users Have to Say

  • Michael Lepage testimonial about ScheduleReaderScheduleReaderTM is such a simple tool but effective tool, that I recommend it for all P6 users. The tool has saved us countless hours in our marking of assignments because it's so fast. It can open even the most complex projects in less than three seconds, due to the fact that it's not connected to a database.

  • Bill Prokopowich about ScheduleReader softwareHaving dozen of projects ranging from $8M to over $200M in cost, we needed a software that we could take to the jobsite, review, update the status, and have the results by the time we return to the office for a meeting with stakeholders. That’s where ScheduleReaderTM out performs all competitors.

  • User about ScheduleReader software for opening Primavera P6 XER FilesScheduleReader is a really useful companion tool to Primavera P6. It could not only replace the old-fashioned way of sending and receiving projects in .pdf format, but also, save valuable time in making sure all project stakeholders are up to date with the project status.

I recommend it if you need a project viewer that allows users to open and view project data exported from Oracle Primavera P6 though we are also using the software to send activity progress update to supervisors.
