Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I like the reporting engine, IBM Cognos, especially the analytics. That's a good tool. It's quite strong on the ideation and capacity-planning side, which is a huge plus.""The timekeeping features are great and very helpful.""Changepoint gives us a view of the project status and needs very clearly, which are things that we used to miss with MS Project and Excel."

More Changepoint Daptiv Pros »

"In my experience, this solution is one of the best for the waterfall management model.""It is easy to use and pretty intuitive. User interfaces have stayed the same for the most part for the last 20 years. So, there is a familiarity.""The ability to break down project phases is most valuable. Being able to align the tasks and reporting with project milestones and progress is also valuable.""Technical support has been very helpful.""The pricing is pretty good on the enterprise agreement we have.""The solution is very complete. It makes it a great option for project managers and they can use it extensively in almost any organizational setup.""It served the purpose. It was pretty user-friendly.""The most valuable feature of this solution is time management."

Cons
"It would also be nice to see some improvements on the IBM Cognos Analytics. There's still work to be done on the analytics side of things, like your condition formality.""This solution needs more standard connectors to other solutions.""I find the solution has an excessive amount of features. Many aren't even kept current. Some aren't useful at all. There's an overall lack of coherence within the solution. It can make the execution difficult. Many features can easily be eliminated and it would help streamline the solution. They should get rid of 80% of the features and then really focus on the leftover 20% to make it a really great product."

"Microsoft's solution isn't really a collaboration tool, however. If you need a collaboration tool, you can use Slack, which can be integrated with your JIRA.""If Project had a better mechanism to allow those who are not the project manager to see their own work tasks, that would be of help or of value to us.""Once we commit our status, changing it is hard.""The technical support could be improved. They are okay, however, they could be much better.""When you start getting into the more advanced features, it can become unstable. The more you use the advanced features, the more exposure you have to an unanticipated result. I think we need to add the Kanban Board capability to the product that would help them advance that board into the project management methodology that's being used in the industry today. Being able to depend on Scrum management is key.""I am not that close to it anymore, but I know that there were some cut and paste issues when we were trying to move one group of roles to another, and they used to muck up the interdependencies between the tiers, rows, and other things.""It should be easier to break things. Breaking up the visualization from the task is sometimes a little bit tricky to do. You can do it, but it takes a minute. It's not an easy function to do. The way you have to format it and stuff like that takes a minute.""Its user experience can be improved while configuring it. Its reporting can also be better. Reporting is not very easy. Reports do not always work. I was trying to download some reports, and they didn't work. I don't know if it was related to the configuration that I was using. I didn't go too deep to check if something was missing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's a yearly license, but it's not an open license. It's based on users and their roles. So your administrator is priced differently from your timesheet user.""The licensing is pretty complex. Each kind of user is a different price. It's approximately $300 per year. They charge additional fees for technical support and other additional services."

"Its price could be reduced a little.""It probably was $30 per license on a monthly basis. There is no additional fee.""I do not remember the exact cost we paid but usually, they charge per user per month.""It gets expensive when having to add all of the plugins and everything that you need."
