Archioffice is only suitable for architect and interior design firms.

LiquidPlanner

It is suited well if the whole company is on-board and if you take the time and effort to train everyone and to use LiquidPlanner as it was designed. Used in such a scenario, I think it could be a very effective project management and task tracking tool. If you have custom needs and need a solution that will bend to support almost any scenario, you might end up fighting with the system to get it to do what you want.

Pros

ArchiOffice

  • ArchiOffice helps me manage my time throughout the work day.
  • ArchiOffice helps me to understand how much time I have allocated to each client and to give me a realistic view on how long each task actually takes.
  • ArchiOffice gives me a breakdown of the time and expenses our company has allocated to each project.

LiquidPlanner

  • Priority based planning. Every other planning software we've used relies on dates and therefore needs constant attention. Priority based planning means that the plan is always up to date.
  • Ease of use. LiquidPlanner has a very short learning curve. This is critical to getting team members to use it.
  • Forecasting. LiquidPlanner makes it very easy to run scenarios by simply dragging and dropping projects and reassigning resources.
  • Awesome Support. I get personal responses very fast. Usually within a couple hours. And, they listen and ask for more information.

Cons

ArchiOffice

  • Connectivity with technology (smartphone devices, Outlook) could be improved. An app to enter time/expense information would be very beneficial.
  • Tracking Construction Administration items (RFI's, Submittals, etc.) seems to add time to the process where it becomes ineffective to use that function of the software.
  • Having to constantly log in due to "timeout" becomes a little annoying but manageable.
  • The dashboard could be improved to provide pop-up reminders when submittals are due soon, timesheets need to be turned in, project actual hours are nearing budget hours, etc.

LiquidPlanner

  • LiquidPlanner's mobile app definitely needs some work. It doesn't display properly, having many things on the right hand side cut off. It doesn't update/refresh well. I can't imagine the mobile app will ever have the functionality of the Web version, but it needs to come a lot closer.
  • LiquidPlanner requires that everyone actively participate in order to maximize its benefit. However, it can be difficult for everyone to be on top of all of their responsibilities all of the time. Not sure on a solution, but it can be a lot to manage.

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

ArchiOffice

I love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

LiquidPlanner

We use Teamwork for managing projects and love it for that, but we stick with LiquidPlanner for the high-level overview of our project workload, as well as for time-tracking (specifically for being able to bill out actuals). Teamwork and LiquidPlanner each have their merits; we find the combination of both tools to be right for our needs.

Return on Investment

ArchiOffice

  • ArchiOffice helps us manage our day to day time.
  • I would like ArchiOffice to manage future time better with project time projections.
  • ArchiOffice helps us manage our monthly expenses.

LiquidPlanner

  • At the moment, we do not have enough individuals in the organization using LiquidPlanner to have any meaningful impact to ROI, but I still believe that it has great potential. I think once we reach the "tipping point" and start to manage more and more of our projects in it, we will eliminate or reduce much of the chaos and confusion we face currently by having myriad project management tools, templates, and methodologies practiced through the organization (if at all).
