ActiveCollab

We have a marketing company. If you are an agency of any size and work with clients, it's easy to give your clients full access to whatever you want them to see. We allow our clients to see how their projects/tasks are going, but there is even a hidden from clients button on any task that allows you to give full visibility into any task for any and all clients.

Daptiv

Daptiv is well suited to a mid to large size relatively structured organization. It has a top down focus and flexibility that supports executive reporting well. Like most PPM tools it does require some central administration. Right now it is not highly suited to development organization that is fully agile.

Pros

  • Very nice interface for all user roles in the system.
  • Effective notification of pending tasks and optimal management of the equipment.
  • Organized work flow, productive tasks and correct execution.
  • Creation of filters to better locate artifacts for daily use.

  • Daptiv is particularly well suited for capturing project details in one location and the tool can function as an intake process for project requests.
  • This has been helpful to my organization as it has allowed us to stop using individual spreadsheets that often do not align.
  • The Resource Management function in Daptiv offers an overall view of project demand versus available capacity. This has allowed my team to show internal IT teams as well as the executive teams where resources are being focused.
  • The Time Tracking function was something that my company was missing as a centralized tool. Previously, disparate spreadsheets were used, or in some cases, an outdated tool only used by few teams was still in use. Daptiv has made time tracking easier for users as well as given visibility into where work efforts are expended.

Cons

  • It is confusing when a review is made, before buying the product.
  • It lacks animation and pleasant forms for the user.
  • Does not allow effective communication when activities are reported. Since it does not provide a direct message chat.
  • The reports that are generated are basic, they do not have personalization characteristics.

  • Search function - Sometimes I have a hard time locating previous projects that are closed out that I need to go back into. This could be something that I need more training in to learn how to better name my projects.
  • Multiple people per task - When more than one person is assigned to a task, it would be nice to have a way to close the task for one person without the entire task closing.

I do not have the power to renew Daptiv at my office, but I think we will continue using it because everyone already has it in use at my office, and we have made recent upgrades to it to make it more useful for our office as a whole

The main thing that I have to apologize for is the UI. Does the job but just not the flexible responsive experience that most users are used to.

In the 3 years I have worked with Daptiv I think it is been down once. The ONLY partial outages I have ever had have been with report automation.

Big issues I have always had good luck in response and they are generally resolved quickly. Smaller issues do sometimes go into a black hole. I do not have a way to track my issue currently.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab has all the functions that are in these services, unlike them. Not everywhere there is a diagram of gantt. And somewhere the interface is very rewarded and in general looks obsolete.

I have not used a similar tool. My office had Daptiv when I began my job, and I was trained to use it. My office has recommended ways to use Daptiv (recommended project naming conventions, recommended reports to run, etc.), so I was trained on how to use it effectively in my office

Return on Investment

  • We began to finish projects on time, which undoubtedly will influence the return of customers
Иван Шайхисламов profile photo
  • Better customer service - In Daptiv I can easily track the amount of time I worked on a project, so I can then tell my client accurately how much time I spent.
  • Effectively managing budgets - When I know I need to stick to a certain budget on a project, I can carefully plan and be aware of my time and money spent in Daptiv.
