Likelihood to Recommend

Arena

I would highly recommend Arena for any small startup up to a well-established company. Arena is very price competitive, easy to configure, and user-friendly. Arena integrates nicely to any existing ERP software or can be linked later in the process as needed.

Roadmunk

Roadmunk is a great tool for Product Managers and Project Manager that allows an easy and pleasant way of creating roadmaps. It's perfect for people who have to communicate with stakeholders and show project progress to others. It's perfect for teams using JIRA as it allows a simple integration with the system.

Pros

Arena

  • Arena allows for easy customization and this is beneficial because the company can set up the PLM to meet their specific needs and tailor it to their business.
  • The interface is very user friendly and this helps to eliminate the apprehension of using a system for an employee who is not a computer expert.
  • Policies and user groups allow administrators to control what certain employees can and cannot see. This control keeps data accuracy intact and helps to create a structured approach to data acquisition.

Cons

Arena

  • There were a few fields that we could not modify. They were standard fields that Arena would only allow specific data. It would have been nice to be able to modify the field and customize as we wished.
  • We wish there was a shared user license. There are some users that might only use the product once per month. It would be nice if they did not need to hold their own user license to access information.
  • When approving changes or requests, or completing a task in a project, it would be nice if the system automatically notified all down stream users with open items that the task was completed.

Roadmunk

  • The biggest issue with Roadmunk is that it doesn't allow setting up sprints (2 weeks period of time) that are essential in dealing with Agile
  • Multiple milestones and projects can visually overlap and make the roadmap difficult to read

We have so much time and effort invested into Arena. The history of approvals, revisions, etc. are necessary for many of our customers. We also have entire device histories recorded. Having to re-create that on another platform would be a feat requiring years of effort.But mostly, Arena just works. It's transformed our business into a much more streamlined system, resulting in a massive cost and time savings.

Very accessible and usable overall, but there is definitely some room for improvement. The ECO revision issue I mentioned is one such.

The ticket reporting system is almost immediate. They follow up very quickly and have always been able to help resolve issues.

Alternatives Considered

Arena

We were looking at using our ERP - IQMS to take the place of Arena but it didn't even come close to having the functionality and ease of use that Arena has. Omnify PLM came in and gave a demonstration and the management team choose Arena over them in a vote that wasn't even close.

Roadmunk

In my opinon Roadmunk has the best UX and very friendly interface. The decision to purchase Roadmunk was based also on the great customer service and help provided by the team. Roadmunk team is open to suggestions and is constantly working on their product. It's great to see how it is evolving

Return on Investment

Arena

  • Since we haven't introduced a product, this is a difficult question to answer with a useful number. I can say that Arena has become a tool that everyone in the organization counts on and is the first place to look for anything.
