Planview PPM Pro Other Solutions Considered

I evaluated Wrike, Workfront, Workzone, and one other vendor along with Planview. I have worked with Planview in the past and kept going back to the Planview product because it had the most features and flexibility. We are able to use PPM Pro or Projectplace because our teams and departments aren't comprised of typical project management teams. They're what I call accidental project managers. They don't get the concepts behind the methodology, but they know that they need something to help them with their work. We leverage the Projectplace side of the tool for our clients services teams. Then, for our larger projects such as, IT, Security, Legal and Compliance projects, we use the PPM Pro side. This allows us a lot of flexibility that we wouldn't have had with another tool.

We did evaluate other options before choosing this solution. We looked at Microsoft Online, Clarizen, and some of the smaller tools like Wrike and Smartsheet. There are a few other tools, as well. Overall, we felt like we did a pretty good review of all of the major players in the area. In the end, Planview stood out. View full review »

We did look at other products. We looked at Primavera, which is Oracle's product. At my previous job, I was with Hewlett Packard for 20 years, so I looked at HPE's product PPMC. Then, we wound up on PPM Pro for a couple of reasons: * It's cloud based. * The cost was in line. * It was going to scale as we grew. We could add more users and so on. Primavera were extremely cost prohibitive. They wanted to sell a complete solution out-of-the-box. We talked about doing it on-premise. This means you need the data center to get involved. You need all that technology to evolve. We just didn't have it and needed to get going quickly. The speed was with PPM Pro. The power of the applications were with PPM Pro. The passion of the people that I met with Planview was just the clincher for me. View full review »

I would rate it at about eight (out of 10) only because we've been using it for two years but there have been some growing pains as we are learning how to use it and getting the team adopted. I definitely see that adoption has happened and people like what they're seeing. However, I also see some areas where they could make it stronger. Some of the things that we are looking at seem to be maybe in Enterprise One. So, a lot of the talks are now on Enterprise One. We are saying, "Oh wow, they are pretty similar." Then, we start to talk with people, and they're like, "Yeah, we can do this there." So, we should maybe be looking at what the differences are and what exactly they can do View full review »

Microsoft project is always out there. Project Server was horrendous. However, for the desktop, a lot of people prefer Microsoft Project for managing their project tasks. The PPM Pro tool is where the portfolio program management and the milestone plan of the PM is done, but the detail project plan is still maintained by our PMs in the Microsoft project.

We tried other tools, like Microsoft Project, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft Planner. What I like about PPM Pro is it puts all of those tools together into one integrated platform. So, you have a good overview of what is going on in the project space of your organization. View full review »

The top contender was CA Clarity versus Planview. We went with Planview because Planview had a lot more flexibility than Clarity. Most of the attributes are configurable. We can change it to our own needs, which I didn't see with some of the other tools that I evaluated before starting Planview. View full review »

Director, Project Management at TradeStation
We did due diligence on a multitude of companies that offer solutions, then we narrowed it down to Planview and moved forward with it. We evaluated six different firms, including CA Clarity, KeyedIn, and Microsoft Project Server. The Planview customer service and sales were excellent. Support was really good. We've been very happy with it to date. There were other solutions were a bit more cutting edge, but Plainview was more robust. We could actually build it out as we needed, e.g., the visualization, reporting, and integration. CA Clarity has the Jaspersoft integration for reporting. Its ability to have plugins and integrate is a bit better, but we love the stability and growth potential of the Planview product. View full review »

We looked at a whole list of vendors, include Project Server. We chose Planview because of their support. Another reason was we had the ability to add notes onto time entries. We are different than a lot of their customers with billing. Our notes are how we explained to the customer what we did, and that was key. View full review »
