What do you like best?

The interface is clean. For how much can possibly be managed, it's nice to navigate without being overwhelmed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's a little too plain. Although the pro there is not having a display that's too busy, everything looks too similar, so it's not as quick to navigate as something that's more color coded or shaped differently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely utilize their support! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Standardizing project management and tracking insights. Benefits have primarily been better visibility to stakeholders. Of course, in comparison to previous tools used that are stuck in, anything is better, but Planview PPM Pro really exceeds expectations. One of the best things about it is the customization. It's tricky to figure out the best approach, but once that's locked in, there is a tremendous amount of flexibility without too much complication. The interface is clean and easy to navigate. Support helps a great deal. So far, there haven't been any limitations with how much is tracked. There are also critical integrations with a number of third-party applications such as Salesforce, so Planview PPM Pro is certainly a worthy tool for project management, tracking, and reporting on those items. Lastly, the variety in which reports can be viewed is helpful. There is often more than one way to get the data you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This is an amazing project management software that creates and manages project timelines and organization. It enables us to easily track hours of project tasks and activities and time on deadlines. It greatly aligns projects and provides tools to execute each project day by day. It is easily accessible from anywhere. It is cloud-based platform, so data is being saved and secured on cloud. Their support is very helpful. It has incredible tools for portfolio and asset management. It always focuses on project improvement. It provides the ability to customize the request workflow from submission to decision. It increases developer’s productivity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The details of projects, resources are sometimes problematic to manage. It takes too long the user interface should be more clearly designed to make it better for project management. The reporting engine needs proper training for report writers. It opens new window for everything which is quite confusing. It is not that much intuitive; it needs a lot of understanding of how it works in first time. It takes time while updating project tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This platform helped us a lot in managing our project for our company developers as it was way harder for them to manage multiple projects with their deadlines so we implemented this tool for our company and it helped us a lot in improving projects, technologies and developers productivity. It handled our organization really well; project managers are now designing project plans through it and all the other staffs record their time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I am giving this product a 2 just because of it's potential.

- Like that I can drag tasks to new locations

- Seams to have a lot of features

-I don't think I have ever had any issues with logging in, and the site not been available Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm writing my review from the perspective of a Project Manager/User working as a consultant for a local city government. I have been using MS Project for many years, and the transition to this product is PAINFUL. I have been using Innotas for about 9 months, but it's not something I enjoy, and so I use it only as much as I have to...in fact, as a PM, I have to continue to use MS Project, otherwise I'd spend way too much time making updates to my Innotas project plan tasks.

First off, I dislike the fact that I had to connect to my linked in just to provide a review! Anyway, here are some things I really don't like about your product:

- I have tried Chrome (Version 56.0.2924.87) and IE 11 (Version 11.0.9600.18618)..and both have different issues

- It's web based, which I generally consider a good thing; however, everything requires a click, and I get the spinning wheel to let me know it's updating...so, any time I'm trying to update my plan, it takes a long time....for every change. I know "long time" is pretty generic, but from a usability aspect, it's just terrible.

- Using chrome, my task rows aren't aligned, half the page is lower than the other side; doesn't do that in IE 11. My last and only input for Chrome...there are others, but focusing on IE issue at the moment.

-Using IE 11, inserting a new task is cumbersome...click task, right click, insert new task, enter...scroll down (have to scroll again after every entry) to newly inserted task..where did it go, Oh, it inserted my new task somewhere else on the task list...oh good, at least I can click and drag that new task.

What do you like best?

Innotas provides us with the ability to manage our complete portfolio of projects using a cloud-based solution, integrating in our budgeting and actuals for projects with the interface for IT personnel to quickly enter in their hours for the week. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes a decent amount of time to master the way estimated, budgeted and actual costs are calculated. It all makes sense once you figure it out, but you really have to dig in to get to that point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't get caught up in the dashboards at first. Concentrate on the core data related to your key PMO processes. Once you have a solid portfolio of project data in the system, the flashier stuff will follow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying to mature our project management processes and standardize the approach to project initiation and financial management. We have definitely taken advantage of the Innotas platform to establish a project initiation workflow and also use the tool to create dashboards for our monthly meetings to review budgets and costs with the executive team.

What do you like best?

Innotas offers a one stop place to handle project requests from planning to execution with robust reporting and time tracking capabilities to fully understand major KPIs associated with our resource allocation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Innotas is quite costly which requires us to limit full functionality to a tight list of users. It makes it very difficult to expand our user base beyond those highly integral to our group. We'd like to be able to expand this out to a greater user base to not only submit project requests but to access some of the reporting options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Innotas comes with a rather large price tag. Consider how you want your processes and this tool to work together. Determine which components are key to your operation and move forward with a plan. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like other large organizations, we have a lot of project requests that come through our department. This has allowed us to set up processes to screen projects more efficiently and to determine resource allocation real-time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Innotas is easy to use and provides all the basics (and more) for managing a portfolio of projects. The reporting feature does not require a specific skill set (i.e. Crystal) to run. Recently Innotas has implemented new features that allows Administrators to create different types of projects (I.e. project with various data fields) which has allowed for the solution to be extended at an entreprise level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a "read only" license be available that would be free. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Innotas we had over 60 projects that were not captured in a single repository. Creating a single report for project status was painful and time consuming and often done in Excel, over email. With having all our projects in Innotas, we were able to introduce reporting guidelines and schedule and creating a consolidated view which highlights the highest risks project is extremely quick and easy.

What do you like best?

The resource workbench is one of my favorite features. I love being able to see/work on multiple resource allocations at a time (instead of having to go into each project individually.

I love the support. This is for me one of the strongest selling points for Innotas. They have proven they are not a vendor who abandons customers after the sale.

I also like the self-service model and the options available for self-administering the system (and improvements being made in that area). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

User access levels - either I don't understand how they work or the options to create meaningful groups to restrict access does not work well.

The what-if tool is not capable of handling large scenarios.

****

Would like to have ...

- more Website log data - who visited which areas of the site

- ability to create new Request forms by copying existing ones (instead of having to recreate from scratch)

- ability to edit directives when creating filters - if I start building a filter and realize it's wrong, I have to delete it and start over - would be nice to be able to change "&" to "or" or "is date range" to correct date range, etc. PS - Filters could also be built on a single screen so you don't have to click next, back, etc.

- end-user-ready communications so that as major changes are announced, we can edit and distribute notifications without a lot of content prep. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Plan to have resources dedicated to system administration (there are lots of updates/release notes), end-user training/communication/engagement, and reporting. This is not a system that you can 'set and forget'.

Prepare yourself for the reality that you may set up the system to use certain tools in a certain way and then in a short time realize it doesn't work as you thought.

Regardless of the system you choose, strategize around staff adoption (or transition) and engagement. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Visibility into the work in progress, work in queue, and resource utilization.

This tool has also caused more conversation (good, bad, heated, calm, etc. :) about related subjects than ever expected Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

With the introduction of Innotas, we moved away from a custom, legacy PPM solution to an industry leader. We have moved away from manual reporting to poor visibility of our portfolio to a solution which captures all this information. With Innotas, we now have a better view on the following:

- Portfolio Management

- Resource Management

- Request Management

- Dashboard and Reporting Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The current license model for Innotas is restrictive. My hope is that through the acquisition from PlanView, Innotas will adopt different licensing models Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you understand your requirements for a PPM solution. Innotas is a very good product but there are differences if you are moving from MS Project to Innotas. Make sure you understand what those differences are. Lastly, make sure you get support from our leadership team. Our implementation was successful because our CIO is a firm believer of needing a world class PPM solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our legacy PPM solution was customized and required extensive administrative overhead to maintain. Ongoing maintenance and support of the system became difficult over time and was not able to scale as me matured in our processes. Additional challenges included

• Project Managers use different tools to manage projects, including MS Project, Excel, and other solutions

• There was no way of having a consolidated view of resource allocation across all projects, viewing resource capacity or forecasting resources availability. This is done manually using spreadsheets.

• The legacy system lacked functionality of a true PPM solution

The benefits realized have been:

- Better visibility of our project portfolio

- Better status reporting which has resulted in reduced work for our PMs

- The ability to capture all requests in one solution vs. in different repositories

- Elimination of manual processes such as capacity planning, forecasting and reporting

The reporting and dashboarding capabilities are very robust Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not being able to do effort based planning

Not as user-friendly as MS Project Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Innotas is a very robust portfolio management system. The reporting and dashboarding capabilities are great and almost endless. It must be noted that it does not have effort based planning capabilities at project management level.

It is great for companies just establishing their project management office or philosophy.

I would highly recommend cloud hosting since this will save a lot of implementation hassle. The Innotas implementation team did a very good job.

My current account manager does a conference with me once every two weeks and I would say that she is one of the best account managers I have every dealt with. She has been very responsive to our needs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Innotas provides a surprisingly excellent amount of end user support. They hold frequent seminars led by thought leaders, have a good community support platform, and respond timely to questions and issues.

It syncs ok with MS project - occasionally a little buggy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It appears to be marketed to executives so good for portfolio management, a bit burdensome for project management, not good for team collaboration.

Innotas seems heavily driven for add-on sales. Their frequent seminars are followed up by calls from account managers. Interfacing data with other systems is really only possible by paying for their consulting support to build API connectors. This has been a bit bothersome because the reporting isn't fabulous and users who want to manipulate and re-use the data in novel ways are limited. One example would be creating a charter. All data for a charter can be captured in fields, however they cannot be easily pulled to generate a document for posting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
