AceProject

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.

LiquidPlanner

What happens to your plan the day after you create it? For other software, it's out of date. Because LiquidPlanner is priority based, the expected due dates are always valid.

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.

  • LiquidPlanner's biggest strength is that it allows you to have a simple visualization of a complex workflow with the use of packages, project folders, tasks, etc. Long-term projects can be overwhelming, especially if you have to multitask. LiquidPlanner allows you to manage efficiently.
  • LiquidPlanner is a very powerful project management tool, but it allows you to use it in varying levels. The more data you want to give it, the more data it will give you, allowing you to perfect your team and project's workflow. The most notable example is time estimates. If you are able to estimate how much time certain tasks within a project take, you can roughly calculate how long the whole project will take. If kept up with, it can be extremely valuable to budget time and resources.
  • With its different ways of commenting, communication about specific portions of a project is very easy. The tagging system works really well, so that when you tag someone on a comment, they will get an email that will notify them, keeping the whole project moving along.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

  • Assigning projects from 'Inbox' to actual clients is cumbersome.
  • No direct link to calendar view from main navigation.
  • Drag & drop functionality on calendar view would be helpful.
  • When logging time from a timer, the task disappears from the drop-down. This is an inconvenience if you need to mark the project finished.

I believe I'd see better results if mine was a larger organization. Scalability is the issue here, I'm not sure I'm getting as much out of it as I should.

Support is the least impressive part of LiquidPlanner for me. Issues are resolved, but software bugs or suggested improvements are generally blown off or responded to condescendingly. This software updates more frequently than any other software we use, frequently during times we use the product (Saturday mornings). Often the updates result in aesthetic changes that seem pointless when there are bigger updates that would make using the product easier, which should be a higher priority.

Alternatives Considered

I have tried many project trackers, and in my opinion LiquidPlanner fits in somewhere in the middle of them. It's more powerful than some of the trackers I've used (such as Trello), but it's also more complicated and harder to navigate and collaborate with others on than some others (such as Asana, Pivotal, and Clubhouse).Ultimately as a software developer, I prefer a more development-oriented tool and use Clubhouse.io for this purpose. However, for the business at large tracking all of its various internal and external projects, LiquidPlanner seems to be a good fit.

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.

  • More efficient scheduling
  • More accurate estimates for future projects based on existing time tracking
  • Easier time tracking for billing
