Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

Planview is best suited for larger organizations. It is simply too much tool for smaller ones. (Thus the purchase of Innotas this year.) The budget module and financial capabilities were the reason we chose Planview many years ago and continues to be a strong part of the tool, especially with the improvements in version 12.0.I have been impressed with Planview's ability to move the tool forward as the world and project management needs change. They are very good about listening to customer complaints/pain points and address them as quickly as possible in such a large application.We have also been successful in using the tool in some unconventional ways, specifically in areas where the users have no desire to report time. Planview provides consultants that enable you to think out of the box and use the capabilities of tiles and other things to bring value in new ways.

Pros

  • 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.

  • We have been able to use the Request process and Lifecycle email notification to streamline and capture a flow of work that was previously undocumented. These "Customer Special Requests" were known to cause disruption to normal work flow, but the volume was unknown. They can now be reported and decisions to say "no" be more easily be justified.
  • We use the Planview's budget module to capture all IT project costs. We then use this data monthly and quarterly to review our progress towards spending the annual budget and make adjustments to priorities as needed to do the right work with the available people and funds.
  • We utilize IT project time reporting to enable capitalization of software development to improve Hallmark's cost structure.
  • In our Hallmark Digital IT group we are able to use project budgets and schedules to create program roadmaps for upper management to do monthly status reviews.

Cons

  • I would like to see more of a scheduling component, to manage projects across our project team.
  • I would like to receive a notification if a project is going over budget.
  • I have to remember to double click to clear a contact, or the contact will be overridden.

  • As a SaaS product, they suffer from the same fate as other SaaS products of having sluggishness from time to time. Some of our facilities seem to have better response time than others. We haven't really identified this as a Planview specific issue, but it's definitely an issue.
  • Once we had a more dedicated go to person at Planview to solve simple/mid level types of problems, our satisfaction increased dramatically. Their help desk is effective, but, as with many help desks, sometimes response times on non-critical issues can be slower than we'd like and getting simple questions answered can be difficult. That said, their response time on critical issues (there haven't been many) has been excellent.
  • Get a good understanding of how much support internal and external you'll need. Getting up to speed on the tool at the very beginning was a bit of a struggle for us as we were hesitant to burn through our consulting hours. Ultimately on hindsight that was probably a mistake by us as we ultimately went through more pain than we had to. That said, having a bit more included support and hand holding on initial go-live would've been beneficial.
  • It's not free :)

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.

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.

We made the tool selection back in 2002. Most competitors are now gone or purchased by someone else. At that time they were one of the few companies who had a somewhat mature and configurable budget module. We were also coming out of an Access environment, so we were comfortable with the "Excel spreadsheet" look of the tool.

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.

  • Consolidation of our time reporting actuals with our planned hours to provide us with a clearer picture of project variances.
  • Robust reporting options for all our users.
  • Significantly decreased project management time previously required for tracking and reporting project status.
