Pigeon Messengr functions well as a general communication tool. In my experience, the only area it is not well suited for is transferring documents with specialized file formats. I also am not aware of what its auditability is like, but we are using it so it must be there.

ProjectPlace has formats that ensure every project is handled in a friendly manner and that results attained are optimal. Besides, ProjectPlace has an excellent time locating system, where every action is well planned and resources channeled to meet the needs. Further, ProjectPlace has the conventional way of demand planning by learning the market.
Read full review Pros Notifications - I can minimize the window while I'm working and new messages will pop up on my screen so I don't have to remember to check the channel. Statuses - we always put up a status of what we're working on, I like how you can hover over user names and it will show you their statuses. Overall look - I don't know if my company chose the color scheme but it's really sharp. Also love that I can use Dark Mode, easier on my eyes for sure! Read full review As a cloud based solution, Projectplace is one of the few true multiple location, multi person project management tools available for large teams. The reliability for large projects (with teams of anywhere between 50-200+ people) was a huge selling point for this and I witnessed this first hand. The Windows and Mac applications for Projectplace are well designed and work impressively well for a project management tool. I found most of the teams had either application installed on their machine and did not have any complaints about it. Features like AI and project management viewing styles like Kanban, Ganntt and others make the experience customizable for each user and made them adapt it to their preferred project management style. Read full review Cons Sometimes a message will get broken up and I am unable to view it all at once. It would be nice if it had a way to select a message as being unread. I like to leave messages unread as reminders but sometimes need to just read them first. It won't allow me to upload a picture because it has to be of a very small size. Would be more personal if I could use a picture on my profile. Read full review Under the time tracking, it would be nice to have a set template that would load each week and not have to click a button to load the previous week's template. Somehow making it more intuitive. Having to add in each service line and each detail that I cover for every service line each week is a bit ridiculous. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

No downtime-issues since the implementation. It has been very stable

Occasionally, files can take forever to upload and download, and the calendar integrations also don't work sometimes.

Planview ProjectPlace is quite complex, but it demands better engagement with various stakeholders to initiate a useful work environment. There are credible ways of establishing more live engagement, from direct chats and audio engagements. More so, Planview ProjectPlace is more formal, and this limits some users from outlining their demands or desires in matters of program performance.

Pigeon Messengr has everything in one, although there are some things that could be improved, what product doesn't? I prefer it over some of the other platforms because it is more organized for our business needs and communications, and it has several updates a month to make sure everything is working properly.

It offers a simpler alternative that's easier to manage by the less tech-savvy people. I also think that Planview Projectplace has managed to keep the product updated compared to other project management tools.
is perhaps the one that comes to mind, but while evaluating, we saw fewer issues with Planview Projectplace. Overall, the decision came down to the project manager, that had previous experience and recommended the product. For me, using a product from a smaller company is better because I know that there will be a focus on improving it, unlike, for example, Microsoft products that can be discontinued at any moment.

I have not noticed any issues for a company of about 400 employees. I imagine the channel functionality would enable fairly unlimited scaling.

It is a bit more difficult to fluently use in large scale implementations
