Nuclino

One of the best tools for small team wiki/collaboration site. After setting things up in a day, there was almost no learning curve for the users. Not the best solution for bigger teams though. Because of the mobile apps, the user can be productive while on the move too! Desktop and web version are working fine.

RationalPlan

Appropriate as a great alternative to MS Project. RationalPlan provides most of the features needed to develop and maintain mid-level complex schedules.Less Appropriate for large complex schedules of long duration. These can be a challenge due to Duration at top-level. It is also a challenge to generate reports for management - reporting feature is limited.

Pros

Nuclino

  • Clean simple interface where users can onboard quickly and get to documenting - no "plugins" that the user has to learn to use.
  • Great structuring method which shows on the left-hand side allowing the user to drag-n-drop items in the hierarchy where they are needed quickly.
  • Ability to view history to see changes and export content into word and PDF formats.
  • Great search interface that quickly shows the results using auto-complete in keeping with the clean interface.

RationalPlan

  • Portfolio view is great to get a feel for how your programme is running at a glance and which areas possibly might require attention. The fact that you can customise your view by adding your own columns is another plus.
  • All project information in one tool is a big plus for me considering the amount of projects we run with. This really improves efficiency and saves me time. You have the ability to add documents to tasks, manage risks, email resources tasks due for projects they are assigned to(might need some refinement depending on your requirements), material db with costing etc.

Cons

Nuclino

  • No real offline use is possible.
  • For small teams it's ok, but pricing is too high if lots of employees need to work with it.

  • Milestones should be a primary option instead of 0h to create one.

The Nuclino knowledge base is good. Most answers to your questions can be found there. I didn't need to contact support at all.

Alternatives Considered

Nuclino

Nuclino is the clear winner when it comes to ease of use for both the administrator and user. Less setup time and less "training" time. The streamlined interface is quick and intuitive to learn and is not cluttered as compared to Confluence. Every tool you need to use to create a page or administer the workspace is available immediately on screen or by right-clicking. In contrast, Confluence buries many tools in administrative interfaces and only allows use of some features once you make several clicks to include a "macro" or "plug-in". We use both tools and I get complaints constantly from my team about how complicated Confluence can get just to author a quick page.

RationalPlan

RationalPlan is cost-effective and allows most users to prepare and manage their schedule. The software lacks comprehensive reporting and duration changes at the top level of a project.

Return on Investment

Nuclino

  • Having a central documentation allowed users to find data more quickly, which resulted in 50% less "question" type bugs that would appear in our queue.
  • Collaborating documentation before development resulted in less bugs; this is part process but the ease of sharing and making related documentation easy to access encouraged users into adapting the process.
  • Increased use in documentation allows support response time to be higher for triage since supporting documentation is ready to go.

  • Helps explain the target schedule and resource estimates for cost of the project
