It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

It's really well suited to keeping you on task and sharing information with your team. It's not great if you need to export data. And since lots of people use older tools like MS Project, chances are you will have to export. I'd highly recommend this for internal projects or projects where most of the team is internal. It's very easy to use and a lot more functionality that is useful to my day to day work than MS Project offers

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • Real time updates: as a web based solution when I update a timeline my manager and team can see the updates as soon as they refresh their view
  • Highlighting what changes and the critical path: I can set up a view that marks items on the critical path and I can set up a view to highlight any dates that change based on a change I make earlier in the plan. This makes slashing timelines much much easier than most programs.
  • Collaborative notes: you can @ team members when adding notes. This is a great way to share project specific comments and also the system keeps a record of these conversations which can be useful for post mortems.
  • Reports: You can create custom reports and share them with your team so they can pull similar reports for their own projects

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • It needs better cut/paste/move options for tasks within projects or sub-projects within projects
  • The feature to add files/documentation to a project if expanded to the task level would allow for better collaboration in larger projects that span several sub-projects.
  • At the time of my use, the tool sometimes got bogged down to heavier use. Better capacity planning and performance in the servers used by the vendors would help make this tool a much better one to use.

Clarizen's support staff is fantastic. They worked with us hand in hand to make sure that we achieved the results we desired. They helped us determine the best ways to migrate existing project, incentivize end users, and synchronize data with our CRM system. Furthermore, the cost per user could easily be justified in time savings. Project Managers frequently found themselves saving several hours a week, which allowed them to take on more work an concentrate on providing quality service to our customers instead of diving into the gritty details of scheduling a project by hand

Sometimes it is slow when everyone is entering their time on Fridays or Mondays but other than that we rarely see downtime and maintenance notifications are well in advance.

• We worked with a Project Manager on their side. He was very good about developing a project plan to hit our goal. I think we had weekly or twice weekly calls – very steady cadence over 3 month period.
• Their PM skills were great – kept us on task. For the last week, they sent 2 people on site and they did training for power users. After that a couple of them revisited here

Our trainer, Alex, is exceptional and knows the product really well. I swear he must have wrote the product himself! His manner with training is very easy going, gives you homework that is applicable to what you need to learn and stages it correctly for you. It was a pleasure to be trained by him.

I performed the implementation with our Clarizen provide trainer, who knew the product 100% and it went quickly and without a problem. It was a pleasurable process without the problems other software implementation often encounter. Kudos to the Clarizen team for making this a worry free process for their clients because it is worry free.

Alternatives Considered

I did not select Clarizen but would not, given the task in the future. It was not user-friendly to the employees, as mentioned before, and seemed to have a lot of gratuitous features that go unused. We now use Open Air for time sheets and Slack for office communication and Trello for project management.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.

  • It has made us more organized as a department.
