Mattermost

Software developers are big enthusiasts of a ChatOps software, such as Mattermost, as it allows for direct collaboration without unnecessarily relying on email to get projects done. That goes for any teams that require collaboration. Some scenarios where Mattermost may not work as well would be teams that are in different geographic locations, such as teammates in India. Due to the time difference, collaboration would be harder, and an application like Mattermost may not have that much benefit.

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

Mattermost

  • It's open-source! So our devs could adequate the tool to our necessities.
  • It works particularly well in every navigator.
  • It also works well in mobile phones, even when you choose not to install the mobile app (this is a BIG plus).

Planview Projectplace

  • 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

Mattermost

  • UI glitches were frequent occurrences
  • Base pricing is competitive with Slack, but enterprise features come at a hefty price
  • Webhooks are cumbersome to set up compared to Slack

  • 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.

It's an extremely easy to use software, and I would recommend it to every company that is growing. I think they could improve their notification system, as it gets a little spammy sometimes and important notifications get lost. Also needs to improve the number of private chats that you are allowed to create.

Alternatives Considered

Mattermost

Slack is excellent and has many of the same features as Mattermost. However, the cost if you have a larger group can be prohibitive. Mattermost is a better ROI per user, in our opinion. It also allows us to host it ourselves, which is more desirable for management by our MIS department.

Planview Projectplace

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

Mattermost

  • Install, deploy and forget, as the setup was very easy
  • Mattermost has neither had a positive nor negative impact on business objectives
Jaideep Tibrewala | 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.
