Conga ActionGrid

Overall, I enjoy using Conga ActionGrid. It helps us store our large candidate pool, while continuously adding more candidates every day. With a quick search we are able to find these candidates and then match them to a job that they might be a good fit for. After we create a packet for them to present to hiring managers

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

A company should have a strong grasp on their planned use cases before purchasing a tool with as much capability as Planview Enterprise (PVE). This will help ensure that they are picking a tool that matches their enterprise roadmap. For example, if time reporting is the primary use case, then PVE would be a very expensive timesheet when there are many less expensive and less complex tools that would do a fine job in this area.

Pros

  • Matching candidates to potential jobs

  • Planview Enterprise (PVE) provides end-to-end work management for the full spectrum of work types in one tool. Traditional project work can be fully implemented with detailed or summarized WBS, stage gates, workflow management and content management. Non-project work can be tracked in a variety of ways. There is even an option for "ticket" type work. PVE provides 4 types of resource assignments to attach people to work; each with flexible configuration options to meet the need of the organization.
  • Planview Enterprise provides robust Rating and Financial Planning capabilities, and they continue to grow in this area of the tool. Rates can be driven by attribute-based rate cards or by attaching the exact rate to the individual resource. Multiple override functions exist that allow work to be configured with the exact rates when the work is the exception to the rule. All effort data captured in the tool (both from manual entry and/or ported over from the work plans) is converted into financial data with just a few clicks. And, portfolio management of this data is easily delivered on screen.
  • The analytic options available in Planview Enterprise are broad and easily made available to the appropriate audience. They are graphic, but also drillable to the desired level of detail to facilitate analysis.

  • Being able to pull more data through LinkedIn and Indeed
  • Job match function

  • Our PMs still struggle to use Planview to run their day to day schedule. We have trained them on the approach of using Resource Reservations at the project level coupled with Authorization to detail tasks to enable more accurate resource utilization coupled with meaningful dates on activities.
  • The PMs often complain that they cannot easily see how they originally planned the work and that base-lining did not meet that need. However, with the newly rolled out ability to see Expired Effort and Approved effort, I think this deficiency may be greatly improved.
  • The Request tab has not yet been improved the way the Work tab has. You cannot bring multi-select attributes into the column set nor update a structure in a column set, but must open the detail screen for both these tasks.
  • Currently it is very cumbersome, when working with programs in the Strategy tab, to remember to load the project budgets each time. These appears to be addressed however when you upgrade to version 12.
  • The Strategy tab is difficult to use when managing budgets that cross years. We have on-going "Programs" that represent our infrastructure and small enhancement work that continue to show completed projects from previous years unless we take the time to un-associate them. In addition, currently a column set must be create for each year that needs to be viewed.
  • Planview does need to improve their quality control. I think the challenge comes with the versatility of the tool and the need to test many different use cases. But if you move to a new version within a couple months of its release you need to plan extra time for testing and resolving incidents.

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

I've only used Salesforce before and am now using Conga ActionGrid. Although Salesforce is great, it is only used to log candidate information and then log actions that have been performed. With Conga ActionGrid, we are able to log more specific details about candidates, activities and follow up items. Conga ActionGrid provides more tools that would benefit many departments

We made the tool selection back in 2002. Most competitors are now gone or purchased by someone else. At that time they were one of the few companies who had a somewhat mature and configurable budget module. We were also coming out of an Access environment, so we were comfortable with the "Excel spreadsheet" look of the tool.
