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.

Very good for easy project management without too many details and administration work. In comparison to e.g. JIRA, it's much less complicated which can be a big advantage for e.g. a design team like mine but of course, it can also be a disadvantage for complex IT projects. This is why we're using both in our company.

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.

  • It allows larger objectives to be split up into smaller tasks which can be assigned to individual team members. This helps in getting one big task done in a more streamlined way.
  • I really like the task scheduling option which sends you an email each morning outlining the tasks you have to do that day.
  • The schedule overview is also very helpful. This shows the main tasks you have to do from a more bird's eye view to see which overlap. Helps with resource planning.

Cons

ConceptDraw PROJECT

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

  • Reporting and Dashboarding - Initial presentation of the solution had us believing reporting / dashboarding was all set up ready to go when in fact it needs to be set up by the user.
  • Training documentation mainly all video and online - helpful but challenging for users that prefer manual type instruction

I have loved using Projectplace the last few years, however with recent budget issues, we likely need to cut costs in this area, and Projectplace is on the higher price point for project management platforms. There are also a lot of features in Projectplace that our team doesn't utilize/doesn't apply to our workflow needs.

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.

I prefer the way ProjectPlace is layed out and it is way easier to navigate than Clarizen. However, Clarizen does allow you to add fields to a project (i.e. configure it for your use case) while there is very little configurability in Project Place. Additional reporting out of ProjectPlace would be a plus too.

Return on Investment

ConceptDraw PROJECT

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

Planview Projectplace

  • Projectplace allows us to avoid a large number of those daily opportunities for confusion and/or loss of time related to emailing new file versions, having to integrate changes in multiple documents, or dealing with file management and data backups.
  • We can carry out conference calls and online meetings with a range of functionality beyond simple screen sharing in order to improve the effectiveness of our communication and time spent during meetings.
