Daylite

Daylite is awesome if you have a lot of clients and you need to keep track of who is talking to them and who talked to them about what. It is awesome if you have several people who manage the project a different points because you can easily get caught up on a client account or pass it over to someone else. Our projects follow the common flow where the client first speaks with a sales rep then they are passed off to a project manager and the billing team and then when the project is complete, our help desk manages any communications. Daylite is amazing for helping all of our teams coordinate their efforts so the client has a smooth sailing experience

LiquidPlanner

If you have a large project and all of the people working on it are assigned to a particular tactic from idea, to creation, to review, to execution. Putting everything in one tactic and having checklist items that everyone can see is really useful. However, once a tactic or project is marked done, it is hard to find assets and history if you want to build on that tactic for future project work. Personally, I don't like the user experience with the software. It feels clunky and not intuitive.

Pros

Daylite

  • Its interface is quite modern and easy to use.
  • Another feature that stands out [about] Daylite is its integration with other Apple services. It integrates with mail, Apple contacts, calendar, Siri, and notes which collectively creates a friendly environment to access any information on the platform easily.
  • The dashboard is pretty much simple and helpful as the user does not need a high level of knowledge to navigate things on the platform.
  • Customer support is professional.

LiquidPlanner

  • Priority based planning. Every other planning software we've used relies on dates and therefore needs constant attention. Priority based planning means that the plan is always up to date.
  • Ease of use. LiquidPlanner has a very short learning curve. This is critical to getting team members to use it.
  • Forecasting. LiquidPlanner makes it very easy to run scenarios by simply dragging and dropping projects and reassigning resources.
  • Awesome Support. I get personal responses very fast. Usually within a couple hours. And, they listen and ask for more information.

Cons

Daylite

  • Its economic plans lack a few important features due to which small organizations cannot afford it.
  • Another difficulty is that it is found to be difficult in installing.
  • It cannot be configured easily like other products. Its limited integration is found to be problematic.

LiquidPlanner

  • The interface is messy and cluttered. The best way to find things and see what you actually want to see is the main Projects view which is also the most cluttered and hardest to maneuver in.
  • Clicking an external link someone posted in a comment or task description doesn't open in a new window by default, so we are constantly having to go back to get to LiquidPlanner again.
  • The way that the interface saves your state globally (rather than per tab instance) means that if you click a link from someone else to a task that's not yours, then it adjusts your filters on the Projects page. Then if you refresh another LiquidPlanner window where you were on the Projects tab, suddenly all of its filters are updated and what you were looking at may no longer be there.
  • It might just be the way that we use the system, but the Home and My Work tabs are fairly useless for us. They typically don't show the tasks we're actually looking for.

We may not renew LiquidPlanner's contract, but only because my company has recently been acquired and we'll be adopting some of the software that they're using to standardize process. LiquidPlanner's development team releases new features pretty often, so it seems like the gaps and inefficiencies are slowly getting smaller/less frequent

Support is the least impressive part of LiquidPlanner for me. Issues are resolved, but software bugs or suggested improvements are generally blown off or responded to condescendingly. This software updates more frequently than any other software we use, frequently during times we use the product (Saturday mornings). Often the updates result in aesthetic changes that seem pointless when there are bigger updates that would make using the product easier, which should be a higher priority.

Alternatives Considered

Daylite

As noted earlier, we're abandoning Daylite and moving to another project management system that a. allows both Mac and PC users b. is cloud-based. We think we could benefit with an company-wide system, and Daylite 6 won't fit the bill. Our group is currently vetting different products, and Teamwork is the top of our list.
Pattie Covert | TrustRadius Reviewer

LiquidPlanner

We use Teamwork for managing projects and love it for that, but we stick with LiquidPlanner for the high-level overview of our project workload, as well as for time-tracking (specifically for being able to bill out actuals). Teamwork and LiquidPlanner each have their merits; we find the combination of both tools to be right for our needs.

Return on Investment

Daylite

  • We are able to manage the contacts of our clients.
  • It helped in uplifting our business and to generate more revenue out of it .
  • We are accomplishing projects on time and managing clients in a better way.

LiquidPlanner

  • LiquidPlanner really forces you to map out your workflow. For me, honing into a template that I can later adjust as needed has been huge, as there is less time at the beginning of a project trying to assign and figure out what needs to happen when usually it never changes.
  • Communication between employees, especially ones not immediately available in the office has been very welcomed. It helps having conversations documented in a public, logical place that is easy to find and refer to as the project continues.
  • Our productivity has definitely skyrocketed as we've really gotten a feel and committed to using LiquidPlanner daily. As we move forward, we continually try to add more and more ways for us to use the service.
