LiquidPlanner’s award-winning and patent-pending predictive scheduling engine calculates project completion dates automatically based on three key factors; priority of work, the effort needed to compete the work, and resource availability.

Not a calendaring program . It focuses on listing tasks, simplifying collaboration, and Getting Things Done

What is our primary use case?

Several types of project, research and tech projects. It allows me to see and take several steps at the same time throughout the process. Great for planning the amount of time needed to complete tasks.

What other advice do I have?

Users must understand that LiquidPlanner is not a calendaring program. It focuses on listing tasks, simplifying collaboration, and Getting Things Done! It gives you a really easy way to see how long tasks and projects will take, and if there will be conflicts. Identifying bottlenecks and conflicts is the power that LiquidPlanner offers that other products do not.

Good for reporting, but a little rigorous in its methodology and not conducive to real project management

What is our primary use case?

We use LiquidPlanner for managing our projects. It is a web-based solution that uses single sign-on and is accessible through a website. We are currently using a beta version that is not yet released.

Pros and Cons

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

What other advice do I have?

Using LiquidPlanner requires a change in the way an organization sees project management. A project manager can't really use this solution without the rest of the organization being on board with it. This is really the issue. It is a good solution for the right organization. It just isn't right for us. I would rate LiquidPlanner a five out of ten.
