Conga Grid

Overall, I enjoy using Conga ActionGrid. It helps us store our large candidate pool, while continuously adding more candidates every day. With a quick search we are able to find these candidates and then match them to a job that they might be a good fit for. After we create a packet for them to present to hiring managers

It's got its shortcomings but is still the best PM tool in my opinion

Pros

Conga Grid

  • Allows recruiters to service candidates within a radius of a desired city/location
  • Allows recruiters to see multiple fields/information on multiple candidates at once
  • Allows for easier ranking/sorting by salary, years of experience, etc

RationalPlan

  • Simple interface easy to use.
  • Runs natively on mac and is reasonably priced for what I need - high level project planning.
  • Does way more than what I actually need it for.

Cons

Conga Grid

  • It could be more accurate
  • Better views would be nice. cleaner
  • Wish the refreshing was quicker

RationalPlan

  • While the portfolio view is great is becomes difficult/cluttered with many projects. Highlighting master projects will help. Creating a tree view for master project and its sub projects would even be better.
  • Reporting is a big part of any project. While rationalplan has reports for key areas the presentation of these reports could really be improved. Make it more presentable. Add some burndown charts. I hate to compare you to MS Project but they do reporting really well in MS Project.
  • The email function is another great idea. Would be great if one had an option to either email an entire portfolio or by active project. At times I’m still scoping certain projects and if the WBS is not yet complete then this incomplete project is also communicated via email which leads to frustration in the team. You don’t always want to communicate tasks for all projects to all resources.
  • One need to be able to: Email per project
  • Email entire portfolio (as currently the case)
  • Email by resource (send pending or outstanding tasks to the resource in question)
  • Add a portfolio dashboard with graphical speed and bar charts giving you a glimpse of late projects, projects slipping, not started in progress etc., for your portfolio.

I have not used other products similar to Action Grid

MSProject - way too expensive for what I need. I think I could do everything I did in MSProject in RationalPlan
