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

Pros
"Its dashboards and reports are the most valuable. We are able to share these reports and other information with our leadership."

More LiquidPlanner Pros »

"The solution's ease of use is its most valuable aspect.""The solution, overall, is excellent for project planning.""I like the way you can build the schedule by the Don't Start Before or Don't Start After values. You can use it to build your schedule based on how you change your dates. This is how it actually builds the schedule.""The usability is excellent.""The solution is scalable and easy to expand.""Technical support is very responsive - particularly on critical tickets.""The stability of the 2019 version is quite good.""The scheduling and the customization are very powerful."

Cons
"It is a little rigorous in its methodology and is cumbersome. For example, I have a hard stop date and I would like a project to end by a specific date, but this is not how this solution works. It sorts of spits out the project date based on your resource availability, dependencies, and so on. This sort of project planning works in theory, but that's not always the case. It also relies heavily on resources entering their time into the system, that is, how much time they worked on each of the tasks so that it can sort of consistently update the project. I know that in a lot of organizations, including ours, it is almost impossible to get them to track the time. In terms of additional features, they can include more integration with Microsoft because integration is going to be a key functionality."

"It would be useful if the solution allowed us to share files or project schedules. You may get that with the cloud version. However, it's not available on the on-premises versions.""I'd like it if we could divide out the project calendars. On one project server, we might follow five projects or more at one time, and we'd like to see all of the items at once so that it becomes a long loop, but one where we can identify different projects in tandem and then focus on which we need to at the time. While I only have visibility into one, I'd like to see several at a time.""It needs to be more collaborative from inside the application. It only does project scheduling for me. It would be good if it could do other things and be more collaborative, such as sharing tasks for users. It is not really incorporated into MS Office, so you can't copy-paste stuff. It is on its own, doing its own thing. It is only used for scheduling, and it doesn't work well with anything else.""We need to be able to compare milestones, calls, and other variables regarding the projects we are working on. I have to contract developers to make reports, which is where things get complicated. They need to develop personal and custom fields for us.""We think that calculations are not working correctly, and there is a need to enter data a couple of times in order to give the correct calculations.""The check-in, check-out feature makes Microsoft Project Server pretty slow or cumbersome to use.""The deployment aspect of the product is a bit tedious.""It should be more agile and more flexible when it comes to customization."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It is on the expensive side.""There is a licensing cost.""There is an annual license required for this solution.""I cannot comment on the price as I was not responsible for purchasing the solution.""I'm not quite sure about the licensing costs. We're probably paying somewhere in the neighborhood of about 80,000 to 90,000 a year for our current on-prem because we handle our own licensing. As far as Project Online is concerned, we're still trying to get a good handle on that. It looks like it is going to be in a neighborhood of about 120,000 to 150,000 a year, but we're getting a lot more capability out of it."
