Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy.2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
it retains what you wrote.4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page.5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etcScenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that.2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing3) It did not work well for larger teams4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas) is perfect for waterfall or mostly waterfall shops. If you are an agile shop, you need to implement Lean Kit or will not have the agile capabilities. We had success linking VersionOne to Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas) through lean kit but it is a lot of maintenance to keep adding fields, and this does not fully support a feature team link to time tracking.

Pros

ActiveCollab

  • Great for project and task assignments, project workflow and communications.
  • Solid web-based platform that doesn't require software downloads, also includes great mobile platform.
  • Great reporting tools for managing billing, estimating, project workflow and other essential project details.
  • Allows for both the agency and its clients to interact on a single platform using role-specific permissions.

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)

  • The configurability of PPM Pro is the best I have seen in any of the PPM Pro tools I have used in my career. We are able to configure work flows that integrate into multiple PPM processes and integrate or isolate those processes with the others as needed.
  • The reporting capability is on par, and in many cases better, than other tools I have used. The ability to combine data elements and perform create unique calculations for reports is the best I have encountered.
  • The tools available for resource management are robust and provide great visibility into resource capacity and unfilled demand.
  • The integrations with the other tools in the Planview product line allow a full range of planning, management, and team activities in a format that suits the needs of each individual team.

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • Individual comments cannot be linked to. This makes it more difficult to reference a comment or question.
  • Unnecessary features cannot be turned off. Since we use it primarily for communication, it would be ideal to turn off tasks etc. that are not needed or be able to move discussions as the first screen.
  • There isn't an easy way to set up different projects under the same client.
Nancy Ross | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)

  • History breakdown for time tracking per timesheet
  • Bulk edit custom rates
  • Autonomous Time tracking through 3rd party inegration
  • API capability for custom setup
  • Option to have a training video on any new capability at the new page rather than searching for it though archives

Because I never evaluated other tools, I would be open to considering others. Given our establishment with Innotas and the value it has provided us, separating from it would cause some organizational discomfort. However, if a tool existed with a more intuitive interface for manipulating the data and factors of projects and resources, I would be very interested.

Still cumbersome in some areas. It really depends on the individual. I've seen very smart developers who get lost just managing tasks and logging time. Whereas others use the system with ease

The support team is responsive to requests and their annual support fees are reasonable. Honestly, we don't have to contact them much. Updates happen automatically and the platform is very solid and does not require a lot of support. Documentation is good and the platform is easy to learn.

Their ability to assist and answer questions when needed is incredible. They create innovative ways to share information and help customers trouble shoot. I didn't give it a ten because I believe they could do a better job of personally reaching out to customers and providing improvement guidance based on where the customer is at and their needs at the time

It's been since 2009. A lot has changed. We have not grown as much as we could have because of executive backing.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

I have used multiple project management platforms such as ActiveCollab, JIRA, Trello, etc. Trello has great visualization with their (Kanban Board) board system and support drag and drop functionality for managing tasks. ActiveCollab, however, does not have the fancy visualization, but is very powerful when it comes to ticketing, task management, task delegation, time tracking, etc.

During a previous position I used Talisma CRM to keep track of marketing, sales, and customers. While they are slightly different, Innotas is overall better since Talisma from what I recall was rather disorganized. I have also used Ultratime to keep track of employee work hours and Innotas also has a significantly better interface and significantly more features than Ultratime with regards to employee management.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • It has saved us a TON of money (literally thousands) in project management software.
  • It has helped us gain clients because we can show them the template of what they will see and give them access to it. When others don't have software that does this.
  • Positive impact on ROI based on the time it's saving compared to our previous PM software.
Chris Lesner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)

  • I did not have access to this level of decision making nor analysis, but since our license has been twice renewed I imagine that it is still useful to fulfill the objectives for which it was chosen.
  • From our project managers perspective they would still prefer to manage their plans exclusively in MS Project, however they do understand and accept the business needs to track resource time and their split between capitalized and operational tasks.
  • Our ability to create a process capable of handling requests from the business to IT and the integration of those approved requests into existing projects was a key decision to centralize the communication between the two organizations.
