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

  • Time tracking because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

  • Provides visibility into specific resource's utilizations and highlights weeks where a resource has been over committed. The screens used and data presented are easy to digest and respond to. This gives us the ability to see potential conflicts and take proactive steps to resolve them before becoming issues.
  • Allows us to manage and forecast at the program or portfolio level. The screens allow our program managers to group work together and see the resource demands and cost at a consolidated level and allow easy drilling into the details to see the impact for specific projects.
  • Reporting and tracking of historical results. The tool allows easy tracking of both cost and effort comparing what was planned against what actually occurred. The standard reporting has dozens of out of the box reports that assist with portfolio, project and resource management.

Cons

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • I think the UI could do with being modernised. Some of the screens in versions pre 11.4 are a little fiddly and old fashioned. We've recently upgraded from 11.1 to 11.4 and have noticed a big improvement in the UI, particularly the Work Manager (now Work and Resource Management) and the Resource Assignment Manager (now Resource Management and Assignments). Something to look forward to is the new Timesheet which is coming in one of the next releases.
  • Reporting. The current Analytics and Reporting portal can be clunky at times although there are bigger things coming up in future releases such as "next generation ribbon" which embeds reports for line of sight portfolio analysis as well as the introduction of Microsoft Power BI which will enable users to customise their reports and reporting dashboards with ease.

We have been a Planview customer since 1999 and have seen it grow and mature as a tool. We have looked at other tools and have found that PV continues to meet our needs and is easy for our resources to use. They work to stay up on the project management industry and the direction it is going, keep on on current technology so that we can work more effectively, provide excellent customer support and have great pricing for what they offer. We can purchase only the modules we need versus buying a tool where we would only use a portion of the functionality.

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.

Consultants are knowledgeable and friendly; it is easy to build relationships with the support people you work with and they learn how best to help you. The vendor is continuously looking for honest feedback about their tool and they use that information to design their product roadmaps

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 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.

Clarity PPM. I prefer Planview for the following reasons:
  • Better user interface.
  • Better customer service and issue resolution.
  • Reporting is top notch. I don't remember Clarity providing any out of the box reports.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Unable to provide - most of our data is garbage. Because of resource management, most users either take the easy way out and just submit their time to whatever project is easiest or just don't submit their time at all. If Planview (PVE) could make PVE easier to use, I sincerely believe our data would be better because users would not be so against it.
