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.

Plutio

Plutio is great for the individual who is constantly on the go, managing a wealth of online information and projects. I can see those who work in education, such as administration, or technology coaches/teacher coaches using a platform like this to stay organized. Freelance or consultants would also benefit as it can manage your digital self.

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.

Plutio

  • Task management is excellent. It can be broken down into so many levels and makes it easy to keep track of what needs to be done.
  • The ability to customize your method of using it is key. Setting it up to both look and work in a way that fits your company and employees is very important and Plutio does this very well.

Cons

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Non-intuitive keyboard shortcuts
  • No advanced reporting or estimates

Plutio

  • Small issue, but when you open a task in order to close it you have to click the X icon, instead of just clicking in the background to close it.

The GUI is not always so intuitive for non IT people, like some customers. The GUI is still being developed constantly. Leo is very committed to taking this platform forward and making it more and more professional

Interacted directly with the CEO after we signed up, he responded to our questions and built a lot of confidence in the product. Afterwards, we recommended some improvements to the calendar and task list, and they implemented them.

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.

Plutio

Plutio is much more robust than Trello. If you are looking for a full suite of tools to help you stay organized Plutio is the best option. Trello is simple and a great Kanban board tool, however, you can organize Plutio to fit your specific project and preferred workflow. Then you add the other tools, like invoicing, proposals, time tracking, and communication, and you really have a full suite to complement your workflow.

Return on Investment

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Inexpensive way to present a professional project plan when needed
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Plutio

  • Plutio enabled me to reduce cost by integration emails, invoices, and contracts in one spot. Possibly also project management, but I didn't use it long enough to need that function.
