Changepoint

Changepoint is basic and would, therefore, work for businesses with uncomplicated requests, pretty straightforward workflows and willingness to work with an unsightly solution. It is basic, from the UI to the search option and the way the information is captured, which can be frustrating and counter-intuitive at times.It is relatively robust (i.e. I have been using it for almost 2 years and have not seen it crash once) but it does log me out when the system has been inactive for about 30 minutes - and I am only notified about being logged out upon clicking the Submit button, meaning many a line of text have been typed more than once!

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

Once SAP Portfolio and Project Management is configured then it is easy to use. Initial configuration and enabling additional features is time consuming. The best advantage of this software is that it allows us to manage multiple projects and multiple teams at same time. File uploads and download is very easy. KPI and status report can present with live data. Scheduling meeting and recording is not that great with this software.

Pros

Changepoint

  • Changepoint has significant reporting capabilities, though of course, the data that comes out is only as good as the data that goes in. I enjoy being able to use the standard reports to understand exactly how much a project has cost us and to compare it to how much we are charging. This allows us to more accurately set our prices. Though we have not used the report designer capability, I understand that custom reports can be designed with relative ease.
  • Changepoint has a versioning capability for changes made to user profiles in the system manager, which I find particularly helpful. As a non-power user, it is valuable to be able to see what changes I have made to various profiles so that I can troubleshoot a problem down the line.
  • Changepoint has significant functionality well beyond the features that we are currently using, and for this reason, I think it is affordable and a good deal. Particularly if your organization is interested in dedicating the time and resources into using all of the features around project planning, resource allocation, etc., the price is well worth the value.

Cons

Changepoint

  • We use Changepoint to manage the IS organization. I would like to see more advancement in order to do benefits management.
  • I would like to see a capability where a project manager can build a very detailed work breakdown structure, but only require project resources to charge time and provide a task status at a higher level.

Sometimes the decision to renew boils down to an old adage "if it isn't broken don't fix it". Previous to moving to Changepoint, it was obvious that we needed a better project management tool. Projects we completed on time but the time zone difference between the teams and several iterations of back and forth caused a number of communication issues with projects. The difference is night and day.

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

SAP Portfolio and Project Management 8.0
Based on 2 answers
This product is very customer-centric and solution-based for SAP Project Management. It has very good web-based UI. Portfolio and Project Management in one single platform which is very rare in different project management products. Effective tool to manage projects, portfolios, budget and schedule. KPI and Reporting is one of the best features of this product.

Alternatives Considered

Changepoint

We believed that Changepoint matched up well, had better support and provided a better pricing structure that worked better for our budget constraints over time. The team was willing to work with us on the design of the tool for our needs and it wasn't going to break the bank from a budget perspective.

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

For already existing and green field SAP project the SAP Portfolio and Project Management is the best product for handling projects. Sending and importing data and information is efficient using this software. You can communicate with other project members using this product environment. This works great with complex and bigger projects. Other software like Microsoft Project, ProjectLibre are also good products but [inconvenient] for SAP environment.

Return on Investment

Changepoint

  • Employee efficiency has decreased significantly within our Project MAnagement team. The main causes are lack of logical steps/not user-friendly and the slowness of the entire program.
  • Changepoint PSA has greatly improved being able to track budgets for all projects. Before this software, budgets were done manually by hand and cross-referenced with Accounting. Now, we can pull a report out of the system, as long as all parties entered their time and data correctly.
