What is most valuable?

Changepoint is the application my firm uses for professional services time keeping, revenue account and projection, non-working time accounting and project management. Why? All employees record their time in this application, Changepoint… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Over the past 3 years, we have enforced accurate and complete data entry at all levels. As a result, we are now able to report on ‘actual’ results through the entire business and project life-cycle and are now analyzing ‘predictive’… more»

What needs improvement?

Accessing some functions is a bit obscure and requires some knowledge of how the product works, but the upgrade from v2012 to 2014 improved that situation and I expect the upcoming upgrade to 2017 to further streamline operations. Did you… more»

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

I am only marginally familiar with pricing and licensing as this product was already in place when I arrived.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend it as a one-stop-shop for professional services.

What is most valuable?

Resource management is a valuable feature of this product.

How has it helped my organization?

The only marked improvement was in resource management. Changepoint allowed us to model resource request/assignment workflow in our large PS organization.

What needs improvement?

The timesheet app is outdated. Web portal functionality is lagging behind in other features.

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

Do not go with perpetual licensed solution!

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We switched solutions due to the corporate mandate. The previous solution that we were using was Projector PSA; it was overall a superior product.

What other advice do I have?

You should check on ownership situation. CP was in the middle of spinning out of Compuware when we implemented it. Thus, there were many questions about the future, new… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As I mentioned earlier, it was a corporate mandate, so did not evaluate other options.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are resource allocation and capacity planning.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is quirky and does not always conform to the expected Microsoft UI standards. Several areas of the product use Silverlight technology. This will be replaced in a future version of the product, but that is taking some time. Here is an example of the user interface: To change the… more»

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

I was not part of the negotiations. I do know that the licenses for people with project manager and other advanced permissions are more costly than for those who only enter time. We needed more people to have the project manager and additional permissions licenses than Changepoint initially… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is important to have a Changepoint expert/consultant to assist with the initial setup. You need to know a lot of details about how fields function so you will know how to choose the configuration settings.

What is most valuable?

Dashboard, reporting, capacity vs. demand, time sheets

How has it helped my organization?

Reporting of IT capacity available for first time, time sheets available for first time.

What needs improvement?

I don't work at the company anymore where we deployed this, but would say there's too much work that has to go into the configuration up front and for the first 6 months to 1 year after. That costs time, money, and resources. Not a very advanced tool. Seems interface-wise to be behind the times… more»

What other advice do I have?

Get a firm grasp on the cost to implement, support, etc. since you will have to configure it yourself. Also, to have stellar service you will have to pay more.

What is most valuable?

Portfolio View (built from a top down perspective to support senior management reporting) Excellent reporting Resource Allocation/Capacity Planning function

How has it helped my organization?

I implemented for a large client of mine and saw them quickly get up and running and leverage Daptiv to help them manage their IT demand from their internal customers. But putting in Daptiv's PPM tool… more»

What needs improvement?

Would always like to see improvement in the Resource Allocation and Capacity Planning features -- these are the areas that can / will give the greatest ROI so improvement would always be welcomed… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, switched for greater features/functionality.

What other advice do I have?

Like any other software package -- phase your implementation. Start small and build -- give the users time to fully adopt the features -- but have a set schedule (implement quickly with features… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes -- AtTask, Innotas, Instantis
