Planview Projectplace

Planview Projectplace provides excellent collaborative project planning and engagements with the best project management tools to get work and projects done easily. Online visualization functionalities allow easy tracking of project progress, identifying top projects and underperforming ones, and tries to find the bottleneck cause of the whole problem.

Smartsheet

There were new vendors who needed to submit their documents by the sales department for legal and Risk department for reviewing and checking the validity of the documents, The way of escalation and attaching the documents and the vendor's data was well suited to be done through the smart sheet. As the sales use smart sheet tickets for submitting the vendor's details and attaching the documents. Through the Smartsheet automation process, a notification mail was sent to the legal and risk department for reviewing and the tickets were assigned already to the admins for validating . After the admin's review and tick mark on the check box of reviewing in the smart sheet which was customized than when its clicked send automated emails to the supervisors for approval, Then after the supervisor's approval, an automated mail was sent to the sales team for completing approval of the vendor. All of these scenarios and hierarchy did because of Smartsheet.

Pros

Planview Projectplace

  • 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.

Smartsheet

  • Its hard to overstate the value of familiarity. Being able to use a tool that has some familiarity takes away the time needed to train and orient employees on a new tool and allows an organization to hit the ground running.
  • Smartsheet covers most of the basics of a project management tool, the usual tasks, milestones and project viewing options.
  • For data viewing, you get multiple data viewing options including a calendar view (good for marketing teams and those who work around scheduling), Kanban, Gaant etc

Cons

Planview Projectplace

  • 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.
Heath Achatz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smartsheet

  • Smartsheet set up is similar to Excel, yet when you upload an Excel file, things like conditional formatting are lost. Smartsheet has its own conditional formatting, and you have to reinstate the rules. It would be great if those would apply automatically once a file is uploaded
  • Some Smartsheet management and access rules can take some tweaking to work properly. This may be a case of offering more info to admins so they can apply these better and with more efficiency

We're committed now & have >50 users on Projectplace. All our projects are now tracked in the tool. We this investment of time & training, the cost of maintaining Projectplace is relatively low for the benefit. So we will renew, even if there are some idiosyncrasies in the tool & there are opportunities for improvement.

It definitely meets our needs as far as organizing and archiving our tasks and files. As we train more staff to view it, I see opportunities for more improvement, which I am sure this program can handle. I look forward to seeing continued improvement from Smartsheet on their capabilities and functionality.

Usability

It is being actively used, and as far as I know, it was managing ten projects at the same time successfully. Boards are helpful for communication about particular tasks, and prioritization allows flexibility when it comes to actually accomplishing them. Web-based functionality also makes it significantly easier to manage from an admin perspective, whereas for other products, we'd see new versions being loaded. Data is secure in the software, and closing the project seems to be easier.

Smartsheet is very easy to learn. However, while I have been able to pick it easily, Microsoft Excel and Project super users that I have trained on Smartsheet get bogged down in the differences and can find it frustrating. Explaining the differences ahead of time and why Smartsheet is being chosen instead of a different software seems to counteract those reactions

It would be really hard to complain about Planview Projectplace support. Their response time is super fast and it is very easy to contact them through one of available contact channels i.e. phone, live chat or submitting a ticket. Additionally, their always up-to-date Top 25 FAQs helped us several times and as a result we did not have to contact Customer Care team at all.

I give this rating because it fills a niche in the market. MS Project scares many away from proper task management but there are limited tools our there, especially cloud-based that are mobile-friendly. Smartsheet fills this market gap, especially for small to medium-sized businesses. IT is not fair to compare it to MS Project, but fairer to see what gaps it fills.

It's absolutely paramount to take a few minutes to actually play with the software. It's nearly impossible to do anything wrong or make a mistake which cannot be fixed easily. Under the help menu is Live Training option. After you familiarize yourself with the commands, watch the live training for some in depth understanding of how to make the software fit your needs perfectly.

Alternatives Considered

[In my experience] Jira is more refined, better looking, and easier to become familiar with. Also, the massive market share of Jira helps in consultancy as you can switch between clients easily. Projectplace has many powerful tools but so does Jira, and Jira integrates with our suite of software much easier compared to Projectplace.
Alexander Cooper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smartsheet

Jira and Redmine are much more robust and technologically advanced project management solutions. I enjoy using either when managing a very large project. However, I prefer to use Smartsheet for my smaller to medium sized projects. As for Google Drive - I would say that Google sheets and Smartsheet are almost identical in my opinion when it comes to functionality. Personally I prefer to manage smaller projects via Google Drive, but it is a personal preference!

Return on Investment

Planview Projectplace

  • [We have the] ability to support remote work through projects that scale across multiple groups
  • We have large-scale quarterly projects, so the ability to save and duplicate project templates are helpful for us to keep track of tasks down to the specific card
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smartsheet

  • This has really opened up collaboration across teams. A lot less working in silos.
  • It hasn't fully replaced any one tool so it means having to go to another place. Hopefully, we can eliminate a tool or two in the next six months.
