The transparency and ability to drive ownership to the person who owns a task has been very helpful

What is our primary use case?

We use it for a lot of large strategic projects from an implementation perspective. We used to have rather large Excel files that we were managing task and project work to be done. Then, we transition all of those work plans into Projectplace. We use it for large strategic project implementations, the new cancer center, we are currently using it for a new hospital tower that we're opening up this fall, and things like that. So large strategic projects is primarily where I use it. We have some service line leadership teams across our healthcare organization that we use to manage their work… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I love the collaborative nature just from my role to help. I'm a strategist. I help manage those large strategic projects. Implementation is one significant piece of my role, but I love the collaboration that can exist within the tool."
  • "The reporting end of it needs improvement. There should be more reporting, more data at your fingertips. It should be easier and a little more user-friendly. I know there is some there, but it's just how do you get more meat on the bones, if you will, of what's available."

What other advice do I have?

Any department that's used it has seen the value. It's just the change of getting people to buy in, use it, and look at work in a different way. That's the key. Anyone who's used it has had a very positive experience, to my knowledge. It's very broad in terms of our organization of who's getting the value out of it. From an organizational perspective, the transparency and accountability across a project, and the work that needs to be done is just wonderful. There's a ton of value as an organization for the transparency and accountability of work that needs to be done. My advice would be to…

The workspace ease, navigation, and portfolios are the most valuable aspects

What is our primary use case?

The biggest thing that I'm trying to hunt down is the integration with Projectplace possibilities with other tools such as with our development team that is using JIRA. Our information systems and services teams use it for planning project work, analysis, detailing, time tracking, and estimates. They haven't started the story point yet but we'll probably end up doing that. We do use the Kanban features of this to walk through our standup. And our PMs use the portfolios. Our managers, VPs, and directors use the portfolio to look at the overall work of how it's planned, and so forth. Those are… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The workspace ease, navigation, and portfolios are the most valuable aspects of this solution. I just got access to the portfolios from my upper management, so I'm able to look at our specific SRE portfolio to see what's a priority, look at how many hours we've tracked, and things like that. I'm not so much included in the budgeting but it's important to see what projects are higher priority and so forth."
  • "The time reporting is an excellent feature that they can show from an individual. The only problem I see is the description field. You can't increase that field, like to pull the column and widen the column that I've seen. I'm not seeing anywhere you could do that. Because you may have some of these cards that start with the same name and you only have so much real estate. There should be a way to adjust those columns somewhat so you can look at the description or hover over it and it tells you what the description is."

What other advice do I have?

You definitely have to have a plan. The templates are great to start out with, being able to build those workspaces fast, and then jumping in. It's very intuitive, sometimes when you're trying to learn other products, like JIRA, sometimes it's a little more confusing and it's hard to get that concept of what an issue type is and trying to understand how they integrate. Then, of course, they have a portfolio too, which makes it a little bit easier to view, but I think it's been great. I would rate Projectplace a nine out of ten. Not a ten because there is room for improvement with integration.

One of the best tools out there for collaboration that affects a project's progress quite a bit

What is our primary use case?

I'm an R&D Project Manager for new product development. We develop valves, pumps and seals, and I come from the valve background. I'm a Mechanical Engineer. We build new products from the beginning to the end and we use Projectplace to track the tasks. We use Projectplace to track our project schedule. We also use Projectplace for the document feature where we tag our company's SharePoint links on to a Projectplace document so that all the documents that we are going to use in the project, be it any kind of piece, an Excel file, a PowerPoint, or a Word document, everything sits on… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Projectplace absolutely supports collaboration in real-time. It's probably one of the best tools out there for collaboration. It affects the project's progress quite a bit. I have started two very similar projects in two separate business units, on very similar teams. I did one with Enterprise One, I did one with Projectplace just to see how the mileage would vary. The one with Projectplace had a very short cycle time so we were able to finish the project earlier. The one with Enterprise One was less engaging and it took a little more time. Because we were tracking the tasks inside the schedule it was not on the cards."
  • "They should also improve the interface. There are other competitors like Microsoft Project for the web, Wrike, Team Gantt who have a way better, modern user interface."

What other advice do I have?

Collaboration was not the focus of our organization. Once we started to use Projectplace we gave it to everybody in the team, from the junior engineers, lead engineers, tech leads, to directors, to have one single platform to have conversations. It enables them to tag people on cards and tells them who is responsible for what. It helped me bring accountability back into a project. I'm happy with Projectplace. I think Projectplace is the reason why Planview is surviving in my company. The scope is good, so people like it. I would rate Projectplace a nine out of ten.
