Any sort of database--keeping records of all of our volunteers, recipients, organizations, etc

We have used JIRA in the past and switched to PT. We felt it was an easier setup and quicker learning curve for our engineers to start using immediately. We have a team of 12 devs and it is very simple to keep track of multiple teams and projects.

Pros

  • All the hard work of trying to build a solution in Excel is done for you. You can create links to simple mobile-friendly forms and datasheets and it builds input forms automatically that can then be easily customized.
  • The relationships across tables are robust and deal with changes to fields and tables without the need for intervention or maintenance (like a proper database).
  • Initial set up and use require a minimal set of IT skills. Coming with an array of pre-built templates and the ability to import your existing spreadsheet and customize and fine tune it from there into a database
  • They don't contact me every day trying to sell their product (probably because they don't have to).

  • Tasks are very easy to view and update. Adding descriptions, attachments and notes are very good for difficult tasks.
  • Subtasks are especially useful for our engineers as each task can be broken down into smaller steps.
  • Assigning and sharing tasks and the approval process is very good as each area QA's their specific task.
  • Prioritizing larger initiatives is very simple as they are constantly changing based on customers needs

Cons

  • I can't actually think of any road blocks or insufficiencies yet!
Dana Luco profile photo
  • I think it could use a bit more customization. It seems to want you to work in a very specific way and that does not work for all teams.
  • Approvals are great, but can use more of a QA process that can be implemented if needed.
  • Bugs are not counted as points, and sometimes we feel we are not getting a true velocity of our teams performance.

I love the simplicity, non-configurability, and price/performance of this tool. Hands down my favorite project management tool for agile.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

This tool has 100x the functionality/usability of Excel or Google Sheets, is much more flexible and user-friendly than Salesforce if you don't have the technical know-how on your team to customize (Salesforce does have far more advanced and intelligent CRM capabilities).

Rally is too complicated - there are far too many fields that all have the same meaning. It's a better agile tool in my opinion since it it was designed purely as an agile tool, but since the CA technologies acquisition, the tool has become more complicated and there are far too many features. Pivotal is great for startups and smaller companies whereas Rally I feel would be better fit for larger more rigid organizations like AIG.

Return on Investment

  • It would cost us EUR 10K to update our former MS Sharepoint system to work faster and to have a better UI. Monthly fee of EUR 250 is a joke compared to that. Using a non-profit discount is great too.
  • The better and faster our psychologists can enter and use a wide range of types of data about children, volunteers, donors and partners, the more efficient they are and the less time they spend with the system - the bigger the opportunity to work with the kids and with volunteers - to do what they love and why we exist.

  • Pivotal has helped us bridge the backlog across various offices and offsite developers.
  • Pivotal has helped us keep our backlog and workstream clear and concise which helps us do more.
  • Pivotal does not roll up very easily for bringing the stack to higher up execs. For this we've had to use other tools such as Trello.
