We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We are on the Flex licenses."
"We have unlimited licenses for all of our functionalities. Since we went global, we went with that model."
"The cost of other pieces and integrating them in needs improvement."
"We have portfolio managers, resource managers, project managers, and time reporting licenses. These are the licenses that we have."
"I don't think we have necessarily purchased everything that I would have liked to have seen."
"We have several hundred licenses. It costs us several hundred thousand dollars a year."
"We overbought our licenses. We looked at our needs three to four years down the road and tried based our contract on that. However, we were over aggressive. We use about a third of the licenses that we have. We're looking to adjust the makeup so we can start utilizing the amount of money that we are spending. Right now, we're overspending, and my organization is not seeing the value in Planview because we are paying so much for licenses that we're not using."
"Our licensing costs are probably $150,000 to $180,000 a year with 270 licenses total."
"The cost was in line."
"$6 million has been the return on investment so far, and that was because of work intake. Now that we are scrutinizing the work intake and asking questions like, "Is there an alternative to your $10 million project?" We had one project come in for $10 million, scrutinize it through our gate review process, and wound up with the alternative, which was $3.8 million. So, a $6 million savings."
"We have their Flex plan."
"Because we have PPM Pro with Project place, we transitioned to the Flex model."
"A collaboration of all their tools truly gets the biggest bang for the buck."
"Bulk volume discounts are a little better. Right now we have to buy in lots of 20 at $200 a license. That's a little steep. For example, with Service Now, I pay $48 a seat for a license."
"Pricing was fair and I thought it was comparable to the other ones that we looked at. Other than ServiceNow, it was the most expensive, but we knew we were going to get a lot of value for that, so we went with it. We paid $40,000 for the implementation and for the workshops."
