ConceptDraw PROJECT

Getting started - using the Gantt chart to enter tasks in any order and then using those tasks to initially define a MindMap to further explore alternative dependencies. The alternative works better when initiating a project with significant unknowns.

PlanPlus Online is great to split regional sales activities. PlanPlus Online is great in office environments but difficult to use on the road.

Pros

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Integration with ConceptDraw Mindmap makes work breakdown very easy.
  • We have cross-functional teams where team members often work on different projects in parallel. The multi project management feature has been a blessing over these years.
  • Another import feature is the availability of many different predefined report generation templates that made it very easy to communicate different aspects of the project to different stakeholders.

Alternatives Considered

ConceptDraw PROJECT

ConceptDraw has a much simpler licensing and pricing model. Perpetual license and ability to use in offline mode was an important criteria for us. Perfect bundle for small and medium business.

Initially went with PlanPlus Online due to cost and ease of getting started, plus the team was extremely accessible. Once we grew and saw the value of the CRM we switched the whole company over to Salesforce so we could integrate all of our systems into one.
