Clarizen One

Clarizen got the job done with time tracking and expense reports, but it didn't do enough to make our organization continue using it. We ended up switching because the key stakeholders (resource management) were unhappy with its offerings. This might be a good fit for smaller organizations that require less feature and capabilities. Instead, our company switched to OpenAir, which has more robust time tracking, expense reports, and PTO accrual and monitoring programs.

Oracle Aconex

For outstanding project managing and operational assistance, Oracle Aconex is an incredible program. The budget that suits every project are met and followed. More so, Oracle Aconex takes the permits required, for instance, the insurance permit and the license tracking. The contractor management feature is also encoded on Oracle Aconex, making the investor and the contractor have the same objective.

Pros

Clarizen One

  • Highly customizable, can develop organization specific workflows, modules, etc.
  • Interface (in most instances) is easy to use. Timesheets, project details, and report modules are fairly easy to navigate and understand.
  • Good comms tools like discussions, group pages, automatic reminders and notifications.

  • Time tracking functionality is amazing.
  • All the features are easy and active.
  • The Cloud services offered by Oracle Aconex is efficient.

Cons

Clarizen One

  • Export: I'm not wild about the export options. We created a custom project plan formatter to turn the ugly export in CSV to a customer facing color coded PDF. It's not super easy to give your customers something pretty to look at (although they do offer PPTs)
  • Gantt Charts: All I want in life is a nice little high level set of milestones to pop into a slide I'm showing to a steering committee. It's just not something the system does. I've just had to screen shot a hard to read gantt from the system or recreate in PPT or Visio. No fun
  • Speed: I am not sure what's going on here but Clarizen can be pretty slow to update small changes to project plans. It's rough when you have a laundry list of changes to make but the system is waiting

  • Interface needs work; graphically inelegant, somewhat non-intuitive.
  • Process controls could be better 'templated' for industry standards.
  • Dashboard/to do for project managers - it's still too hard to see who is slowing the project down.

I give my renewal of this product a 9. It's only because we never know what product may come out next and how other factors in our office political environment may cause impact upon this. If I always had my way, this is what we'd settle on as our de facto project management system.

Usability

It is easy to configure, intuitive. The customization process is in some ways better than Salesforce.com. It has a great UI. It does however depend on how it's implemented.

The design of it is generally fine, however the ability to data upload people from a spreadsheet is an obvious miss.

Sometimes it is slow when everyone is entering their time on Fridays or Mondays but other than that we rarely see downtime and maintenance notifications are well in advance.

It's a good experience overall. Clarizen was useful when needed. It's mostly needed for advice on how to do more sophisticated actions or how to change something that was set up administratively. It's seldom used otherwise. The product consistently works, the documentation is acceptable, and the generally intuitive product is easy enough for most staff to pick up without much issue.

We're delighted with Oracle Aconex's functionality, UX, capabilities, and feature offerings. The only thing that keeps us from giving it a perfect 10/10 is the price. There are other options out there that won't burn as deep of a hole in your pocket, but then again, you get what you pay for.

• We worked with a Project Manager on their side. He was very good about developing a project plan to hit our goal. I think we had weekly or twice weekly calls – very steady cadence over 3 month period.
• Their PM skills were great – kept us on task. For the last week, they sent 2 people on site and they did training for power users. After that a couple of them revisited here

Our trainer, Alex, is exceptional and knows the product really well. I swear he must have wrote the product himself! His manner with training is very easy going, gives you homework that is applicable to what you need to learn and stages it correctly for you. It was a pleasure to be trained by him.

I performed the implementation with our Clarizen provide trainer, who knew the product 100% and it went quickly and without a problem. It was a pleasurable process without the problems other software implementation often encounter. Kudos to the Clarizen team for making this a worry free process for their clients because it is worry free.

Alternatives Considered

Clarizen One

There were several others I reviewed that I can no longer remember but none of them compared to Clarizen when it came to flexibility. Many factors sold us on Clarizen but most importantly it was that Clarizen was capable of wrapping itself around our existing processes instead of us changing to to meet the software tool. With that said, we are now looking at changing some of our processes due to the fact that Clarizen is such a powerful tool!
Sean Woods, PMP | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Aconex

Oracle Aconex seems to be tailored for our specific needs since it supports construction project information and all related type of data. It is secure and compliant which makes it crucial for real-time collaboration and control of job site processes. Other platforms that we have evaluated are still well designed, but much more generic which is not favourable for our engineering projects.

Return on Investment

Clarizen One

  • Great customer feedback related to real-time availabilty of project status. We could tailor gant charts to various customers within an organization fairly quickly.
  • Seeing real-time breakdown of costs and time for projects was great. The main page with summary charts was a great way to get information at a glance.
  • Clarizen use definitely helped us stream-line project planning and assisted with identifying bottlenecks.
  • We run many projects in parallel with similar timepoints (pre-, interim-, and post-). The software was pretty straight forward, permitting us to create one project outline then dupiclating it (as a template) for a number of others.
Carlos Chang | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Aconex

  • Being able to communicate with a client for document submission.
  • Client communication for mail that is traceable.
  • Double handling of documents, as we have another internal document control program.
