Likelihood to Recommend

10000ft

I think 10000ft is good for bare minimum project monitoring, we used it a large company because we didn't need to have exact numbers - it was just a rough idea to see where freelance resources were over burning. If, however you work a much smaller company and really need to know detailed information it's not as effective, there are many other software options that really allow for much closer and precise tracking. I would recommend 10000ft for companies that just need to monitor large freelance teams, track hours and higher level projects that are also monitored on other project management tools. It's a tool I would only use in conjunction with something else.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

Planview works well for large, well defined projects that follow a waterfall or iterative methodology with resourcing needs across various areas within the company or division. Though it does have support for Agile, it is not an Agile project management tool. For companies using Agile, there are other tools specifically designed to support that methodology. Planview can interface with these tools so you can have single view into an organization's capacity and demand management. The tool also requires a fair amount of discipline at a corporate level. The company needs to make a commitment to fully embrace the tool in order to receive the maximum benefit.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.

  • Portfolios-Planview is the only company I have come across which has this feature. I can't say enough positive things about portfolios. We are so reliant on portfolios because we can quickly view our projects in countless ways.
  • Column sets-we have hundreds of custom fields, most of which we have set up as column sets. This in conjunction with portfolios allows us to filter even further how we are looking at outr project information.
  • The search feature-this is one of the easiest ways to search for projects.
  • Custom fields-Last I knew I think we had the largest customization of Planview. We created hundreds of custom fields which allowed us to consolidate the date from numerous Access databases and Excel spreadsheets. One thing most people don't realize is that this type of customization doesn't break when there is an upgrade. Other systems don't allow for much customization for that reason.
  • By Planview allowing for so many custom fields we are able to have only one system to track all of the related project data-most other systems wouldn't allow that which means I would have to have another method to track all the data which doesn't fit into "their" definition of what is important to a project.

Cons

  • It's often confusing to use and find things, I sometimes find it to be a little counterintuitive as to where functions are (e.g. for tracking budgets and pulling reports).
  • When pulling a budget I always struggled to comb through the large amounts of data and time inputted. When I select a filter the page often wouldn't refresh or i'd forget to de-select a filter as it wasn't in an obvious place, which sometimes left me with pulling an incorrect budget.
  • The data is only as good as the people entering the time. Often with so many small tasks people would enter time incorrectly, in the wrong milestone or project. It lists all of your projects on one page, so it's not easy to enter it and there's a lot of room for error.

  • Until the version of Planview Enterprise that was released in November 2015, it relied upon Silverlight technology for some of the user interface... which made it slow and difficult to use with Chrome.
  • Planview is like a Swiss Army Knife for project, portfolio and resource management - but it is only useful if people enter accurate data into the tool... To that end it needs to be something that is supported by senior team members that can monitor and enforce usage of the tool. The difficulty is that it's easy to configure Planview to be simple for the people who use it, or you can make all the tools in the Swiss Army Knife available at the risk of alienating project and resource managers who are less sophisticated. Organizations shouldn't start a Planview implementation until they have alignment from the executive level down to the project and resource manager level around how they want to use the tools.
  • Integration with ServiceNow is still in its infancy - more robust integration around how these two tools handoff work tracking will be a huge win.

I think there's limited uses for the tool and much more comprehensive options out there for multiple tools in one. With more people working remotely, it's hard to just use email and face to face, in some ways you need to have a tool that's a fall back and a record of where you are + where you're going

We have been a Planview customer since 1999 and have seen it grow and mature as a tool. We have looked at other tools and have found that PV continues to meet our needs and is easy for our resources to use. They work to stay up on the project management industry and the direction it is going, keep on on current technology so that we can work more effectively, provide excellent customer support and have great pricing for what they offer. We can purchase only the modules we need versus buying a tool where we would only use a portion of the functionality.

The previous version didn't have as many rich features available on the web (right clicks, sub-menus, etc.) that would have sped up productivity on many screens.

We are long time Planview users and its availability is only limited to our internal SLAs for nightly backups. I have never experienced any unexpected or prolonged software downtime from Planview itself.

Always have a pre-implementation meeting or conference call with Planview to ensure all are on the same page, disclosure of all and any customization (including reports) and plan for support after implementation of a specified amount of time with the assigned implementation resource. And document everything

Alternatives Considered

Although an interesting tool, compared to Basecamp or Workfront, 10000ft really struggles on the collaboration aspect of the tool. It's great for the bare minimum, recording hours and pulling a budget, but we also relied on email for collaboration and face to face meetings - which is no bad thing! Although for big companies and small projects it's nice to have everything all in one tool so there's less jumping and room for error. That would be my recommendation for any company evaluating it

I am not aware of any other tools we have looked at besides Planview Enterprise.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - We were able to track multiple projects at the same time and record accurate hours.
  • Positive - Able to pull budget and excel reports which can the be analyzed further and relatively simply.
  • Negative - There were a lot of times when hours were entered inaccurately which left us in a bind with budget and freelance billing.

  • Overall our journey has just started and so far we have reached a better transparency of information. Both concerning the plan ahead and ongoing projects. Only this is well worth the effort.
