Specific scenarios where Communifire would be well suited to an organisation, would be companies that are people focused and committed to frequent and open communication channels from both the top-down and bottom-up. It also would suit organizations that are committed to providing the staff opportunities to collaborate, share and actively contribute to company initiatives and planning. If these aren't elements of your organization's culture, the system would still work for you or those companies who just want to push information out and have an effective intranet. Communifire would cater to these scenarios just as well and is more than capable of providing that type of simple solution.

From our experience Planview Projectplace works perfectly well for small to medium sized distributed Lean or Agile teams developing projects where usage of Gantt charts is beneficial. On the other hand, according to our research Planview Projectplace is not an excellent fit for companies with huge user base i.e. thousands of concurrent users.

Pros

Axero

  • Communifire allows people to connect easily through instant chat and messaging. It works similarly to other social media platforms like Facebook so its not hard to learn.
  • Communifire makes it easy to share news and events with our community and the presentation of this information looks very professional.
  • I found Communifire quite easy to configure to our individual needs. There were a lot of options to turn things on or off. This was important to us because in some areas of our community we wanted to allow our contractors many features and in other areas we wanted to really limit what was on offer.
  • We had a big list of things we needed a platform to do. Communifire ticked all the boxes.

  • Easily document sharing within group of peoples.
  • 30 day trial version for evaluate our use.
  • Charts helps me to understand my work and increase my productivity in works.
  • The provider provides effective customer support for all users that are adequately trapped wherever they access the platform.

Cons

Axero

  • Some UX issues that could be improved
  • Some architecture decisions don't make complete sense to me (though that's just one man's opinion)
Col Fink | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview Projectplace

  • It is quite pricey for smaller organizations when you compare the annual cost, there are many other solutions that can get the job done for less. In this regard, it is viewed more as an enterprise solution than a solution for any business of any size.
  • While it is a good project management tool, it can be overwhelming to use if you have a lot of tasks and project info to sort through since it is not as intuitive as other project management tools. You may need to have a dedicated person to keeping bigger projects organized.

Our business depends upon this software to provide information on all aspects of our business. The future of business is a marriage between web site and customer interaction. This software will allow us to move in that direction.

We probably will renew our plan with Planview. When we first started, it was a little bit of a struggle because we had to train up the new hires on how to use this software. But after some time, everyone got the hang of it and really sees when it is such a great program.

Usability

Axero

Axero 8.2
Based on 1 answer
This rating has a caveat - there is always room for improvement, and this team gets it.You always learn from customers how to do things better and easier, so it is a constant learning of how people use the site. Although the search engine is exceptional, most people do not use it as their first line of research.Much of the usability has to do with layout - and is not just a software usability item, so the rating is severely dependent up on the layout/options you choose for your usage. And their team will do anything in their power to get the results and layout you want.The areas that need improvement - and acknowledged by the team - are the administrative tools. There are a ton of options, and it takes a little to learn some of those. For most people, however, this won't be an issue, because the support team will always help you. This is always the case with more power. If there were fewer options it would no doubt be easier, but they give you the keys to all of the cars in the lot; so a little more to learn.

The overall usability of Planview Projectplace was difficult to get familiar with, and the aesthetic seemed dated compared to minimalist solutions, and heavily refined tools of other software sets. Certain features such as Zoom integration and excellent cross-platform functionality were easy to use and powerful, but not enough to keep us interested.

Here and there we run into little errors, but overall everything works pretty smooth. When a project does have lot of data in it, it will lag and take a little longer to load, but I don't see these as issues. It can mean my computer is slow or even my internet is slow.

Similar to my earlier response, overall it does load quickly. When our project does have a lot of files in it, it does take a little longer to load. When running reports, they get finished in a timely manner. It does depend how much information that the report does have. But it is pretty fast overall.

N/A - I haven't used any of the support features. I haven't been in touch with our CSM, though I don't believe that they have reached out to us to discuss upcoming or new features since we have purchased the tool. The only time we talk to Projectplace is during our renewal phase.

I don't have any key insights on the implementation of Planview Projectplace, but we were very satisfied with how the software was implemented in our organization. We were able to hit the ball rolling. It took some time to setup, but once we were all setup, everything worked very smoothly.

We selected Communifire for the excellent sales support, strong feature set and quick set up time. We were able to get started immediately and build out features as need required which led to faster execution and higher adoption rates among our team.

There is no added hassle involved due to the availability of the mobile applications. Other than this, due to the collaborative facet of the software I can always make edits and update on the other end. Planview Projectplace has a quite easy user interface which is very easy to use for the non-tech personnel as well. Moreover, the software is intuitive and fits perfectly with all types of organizations, it can be a small business or a mid-sized company.

We haven't scaled this to a larger level yet, as this is still in one of our organizations. We do see the potential where it can be scaled to a larger scale, but we taking it one step at a time. This is the reason why I rate it a 9, we know the big potential but have not done it yet.

Return on Investment

Axero

  • We are still building out features of the platform but with implemention of paid features by members, we will be able to cover our operating cost of the platform.
Art Aughey, FDN | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview Projectplace

  • No one has the functionality of an operating system, such as Skype for Business or GoToMeeting which is very important.
  • Excel's export policy is very ugly and often contains more information than necessary.
  • I can't think of any points worth mentioning for improvement.
