Planview Enterprise One Review

Cleaner, more intuitive, and easier to use than other products


What is our primary use case?

We use it for its intended purpose of project management. It is a typical PPM tool.

I don't think we're trying to do anything with it outside the norm that would need it to flex a whole lot. Our intent is to roll it out pretty much out-of-the-box.

How has it helped my organization?

This is a platform shift. If it works as advertised, it will potentially make us a bit more efficient.

What is most valuable?

The reporting looks pretty good. Although, we're not into it yet, so I can't say for sure how well that will work.

The look and feel of it is pretty clean, so that's good.

What needs improvement?

Our version is definitely set up a bit more waterfall world. It would be better if some of the agile features were more in the standard product.

For how long have I used the solution?

We are really not that far into testing yet. We're not going live until the beginning of the year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It doesn't look buggy based on what I have seen so far.

How are customer service and technical support?

We're not live yet, so I can't speak to post go-live technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup has been pretty straightforward. The deployment process has taken us four to five months so far. We are hoping to wrap up by year-end.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation team has been good and responsive. They have been onsite quite a bit.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't think we have necessarily purchased everything that I would have liked to have seen.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at other products, but I wasn't involved in the process of choosing Planview.

Compared to other tools, Enterprise One is definitely cleaner and easier to use. At least, that is the way it looks so far. It's a little more intuitive. It looks like the financial data entry piece is a little cleaner.

What other advice do I have?

Because we didn't buy everything that I would have liked to have seen us buy. Just based on what we have, it's probably in the seven to eight range (out of 10). Some of the agile functionality and features would definitely bump that up a bit. However, we didn't buy everything.
