Bubble® PPM | Project Portfolio Management Software

No stage gate or portfolio reporting solution can overcome poor input data. The organization has to be willing to commit to consistent and rigorous updates of the information, or the reporting becomes useless. From what I've seen of competitive systems, Bubble Innovator is the easiest to use in this regard, so the excuse of not having good data because it's painful to upload or cumbersome to retrieve goes away. And the ease with which you can produce customized reports allows you to immediately find the gaps and weak points in your data, and take action to address them. That's not to say that every report and function in Bubble Innovator is perfect. But the close collaboration and responsiveness of the Bubble Innovation team has made it relatively easy to triage, prioritize, and implement improvements along the way.

I think for software development, Wrike isn't the best tool... I would almost always choose JIRA. I feel like JIRA fails for most other use cases though. I've used quite a few tools - Basecamp, Trello on the lite end (too feature starved for what we need it for), JIRA on the heavy end. Asana and Wrike were the best fit, but I really didn't like Asana's limited interface, and their collaboration abilities were not up to par with Wrike. I also feel like Wrike will scale with our organization, and Asana is something we'd likely outgrow. At a previous org, I customized JIRA pretty hard for more project management oriented tasks, and it worked really well, it just took a LOT out of the gate to get it going, and was super difficult for some of our users to get a handle on.

Cons

Bubble® PPM | Project Portfolio Management Software

  • User configurable screen views and reporting capability are in development - this will significantly help key users
  • User configurable Portfolio Views and charting

Wrike

  • The iOS apps need more functionalities of the web version.
  • It should be possible to start the enterprise plan with less than 25 users.
  • A desktop app for OS X/Windows would be great so that working offline would be possible (it's sad but a reality that there are still areas where there is neither wifi nor LTE and this is really a pain if you travel a lot but want to work).

Wrike is a free resource for us currently, we moved off the subscription as the team had some adjustments. If we were to go back to a paid model or require more time reporting I'd have to look at alternatives such as Podio. I am the sole manager of Wrike currently internally, and would like to get more people on board to justify the cost

Usability

The user interface is highly visual and simple. Literally within 10-15 minutes of my introduction to the software, I was up and running. Of course, deeper capabilities become apparent after additional use, but the basic functionality is very simple to grasp. Where there are consistent challenges reported by multiple users, the Bubble Innovation team is quick to connect and put plans in place to address the challenges.

Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

Wrike does a great job of provide a breadth of videos for learning their program. This includes a 'getting started' sett of videos along with a collection of more in depth videos to assist more experienced users. Combined with their excellent chat support learning wrike is easy and it includes easy access to best practices.

The number of variables made this extremely challenging (org changes, stage gate harmonization, pipeline prioritization, and new governance model). I think the implementation was handled very well in spite of this, and managed to deliver on time and on budget.

Alternatives Considered

Bubble® PPM | Project Portfolio Management Software

We found Innovator provided all the functionality we required in a lightweight solution that was easy to configure to our processes, provided benefits to almost all those who accessed it with little or no training. Other systems may offer more depth of functionality but this makes them more cumbersome to use and requires more training of users. Innovator also offers a more transparent cost structure - you can immediately see what it will cost as all the functionality is automatically available within the price

Wrike offers high flexibility and tons of features for a reasonable price. The size of a project/group doesn't matter, you can track quick tasks or very detailed project layers. The table view in Wrike offers easy access to Excel fans who normally organize their work in different files and often have difficulties to adopt other ways of project management.
