I only encountered stability issues with the 2010 version.

I only encountered scalability issues with the 2010 version.

How is customer service and technical support?

The number of partners offering support is one of the highest for PPM solutions.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I did not previously use a different solution. I have always used Project Server.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup is not as easy as it looks on first impression.

This is probably the cheapest TCO enterprise PPM solution on market.

Before choosing this product, I compared it to Planview and HP PPM.
