"Probably my Favorite Management App"

What do you like best?

It combines what I like about some of my favorite productivity/scheduling apps into one package.

What do you dislike?

While it's a fantastic program, the price is a little steep for some more casual workers and small work groups, and really works better in bigger settings with more disposable income. I think $360 per person per year is a bit much (or $1 per day). With Trello and Google Docs being free, those are more attainable for the common person and can get the job done easily, so there isn't much of a NEED to drop so much money for this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can't make the price work for your budget, there's other ways of getting the same effect, but ProjectPlace really is a fantastic resource and very helpful in a busy workplace if you can swing it.

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

Getting multiple people on the same page to complete a task and to know what's going on in the workplace. Communication is key when there's multiple people working on different, but connected, assignments.

"Best for complicated projects"

What do you like best?

It's incredibly visual and well-designed. It's user-friendly and fairly intuitive. It's easy to see who is doing what, and I love the graphics.

What do you dislike?

Not super into conversations - prefer G chat. It also seems like it would be the best fit for large consulting or analytics groups. Those with smaller/easier projects may not use all the features. I'll admit I'm not entirely sure how to make the best use of it right now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would definitely recommend for those who have to bill time, consultants or others managing large or remote teams.

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

I'm always looking for ways to manage my time - and what other people are doing - and would like to, long-term, rely less on email. Projectplace can easily replace annoying email threads.

"Efficiently covers planning and everything that is expected from a project management program"

What do you like best?

Communication is something to which I attach great importance, and Projectplace's assessment in this regard is very positive. The options of interrelation between team members, even with people involved outside the team is very complete.

What do you dislike?

From my point of view, the section that I see worst solved is related to the control of the workload. I see it as not intuitive and its handling is cumbersome. Grouping the workload in blocks of natural weeks seems ineffective. When there are tasks that must be executed in less than a week, or be completed in the middle of one, you need to better specify that workload.

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

The assessment of this tool depends, as always, on the needs that one has. It is true that it covers a wide field of the requirements of an application for project management. If those deficiencies that I have found or that you can see are not relevant to you, this may be your management program. If the price fits your budget, go ahead with it.

"Helpful tool for complex projects"

What do you like best?

Project Place allows for different groups of people and individuals from different groups to work together and create more intricate tasks and webs of tasks using cards. The cards and boards allow for a visual for people who need visual project planning, and there are other features that assist for all types of organizers.

What do you dislike?

It can become complicated if you do not keep your project organized. It is best to assign organization to one person or a team dedicated to just this.

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

We are integrating to a new software platform and the project spans multiple offices and multiple teams of people with different skills. Project place helps keep everyone’s tanks in one place.

"Wholistic view but cluttered"

What do you like best?

I like that you can see across teams, and get a high level visual of what is going on, timelines, etc. I also like that you can see a summary of how many projects are in the pipeline, what is next , etc. Lastly, I like that you can easily drag products from one category to another - such as "currently working on" to "finished".

What do you dislike?

In general, I find the UI to be very cluttered. It's not super easy to navigate or update, and not very intuitive. From the dashboard, it always takes me a bit to figure out what I need to click on in order to see what I need. Or, when someone tags me in a card/task - it's not immediately obvious where their note is. Also, not clear how to pull data from the platform to use somewhere else - such as Tableau.

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

Increased visibility and following project timelines. It is good to make sure no projects are conflicting, and figuring out who to assign and what to assign depending on their availability and what else they are working on. It is an easy way to get a high level idea of what is going on in a team/company and then drilling down to understand which specific tasks are getting completed.

"Kanban boards"

What do you like best?

Visualize commitments and engage your team with agile Kanban boards.

Get an overview of project progress across teams and projects – anytime, all the time.

Less Effective in Shared-Resource Situations.

Product Mix or Demand Changes May Cause Problems. The kanban system assumes stable, repetitive production plans.

The Kanban System Does Not Eliminate Variability.

Production Flow Problems.

Quality Miscues.

Very Much recommended. I highly recommend using this software.

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

"What It Does, It Does Well"

What do you like best?

One stop shopping for Kanban, Gantt, File Sharing, Comments, tight integration with Planview (owner of Projectplace).

This was a quantum leap above the SharePoint lists and Excel project plans we were going to use before being introduced to this.

What do you dislike?

Had some problems with very large Excel documents (13mb) not coming through properly. Putting the Gantt view behind the highest paywall is a bit of a blatant money-grab, but that would only effect non-corporate users.

We tried to expand the use of this tool here, but it was not viewed as being favorable to other tools that more tightly integrate with the code/build/test cycle.

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

Projectplace was used to coordinate the rollout of a different tool into our corporate IT environment. By using a tool outside of our own network it made it much easier to collaborate with the vendor without having to invest in VPN connections so they could access our internal SharePoint sites.

"Great project management tool for all industries."

What do you like best?

Very easy to use interface. Easy to understand and assign tasks to peers. The boards and phases help manage projects effectively.

What do you dislike?

The software is way too expensive for the time it saves. This makes it a less value for money alternative in the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be pateint with learning the software. Once you learn all the ins and outs it is very useful.

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

Giving everyone tasks and being able to easily follow up. We benefit by having a whole visual of open projects and being able to manage in one place as where previously we were just using emails and a lot can get unorganized and not followed up correctly.

"Simple project management platform. "

What do you like best?

The visuals and AI are really clean. The kanban board is really helpful to use for projects. The system also features collaboration and communication at every level of the project.

What do you dislike?

There is no portfolio management, but for project management they are fantastic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would also check out Innotas by Planview this is more robust and includes advanced analytics, resource managmement, and portfolio managment. But if you need a simple solution ProjectPlace is it. Its was easier to pick up and use than LiquidPlanner.

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

Increases collaboration on jobs. Easy to allocate resources onto projects.

One trade off of the simplicity of the product is that some options or customizations may be lacking

The third party integrations with box, dropbox and google drive are very useful. The mac and windows desktop applications are also very intelligently designed.

Explore the free or the more inexpensive options before trying this.
