What is Planview ChangePoint?

Planview ChangePoint is an end-to-end Professional Services Automation (PSA) software application designed to power the entire engagement lifecycle. From identifying services opportunities, to contract financial governance and project management, to invoicing and revenue recognition, ChangePoint drives orchestration of engagements, projects, and resources for informed business planning, improved financial control, and accelerated revenue growth.

  • Planning – gain early visibility into services opportunities to ensure more accurate forecasted demand/capacity for services delivery success.
  • Project and Work Management – enable repeatable delivery success and profitability by taking control of customer projects and work.
  • Resource Management – maximize resource allocation and utilization with discipline, to reduce cost overruns and delays.
  • Team Delivery – Orchestrate and delivery work flexibly, in multiple ways for successful engagements.
  • Financial Visibility – build a financial foundation across the lifecycle capturing hours, billing, revenue, and margin, to impact business financials.
  • Analytics and Reporting – Analyze services delivery data without relying on reporting teams.

With the recent addition of ChangePoint PLUS, Planview combines the work management capabilities of ProjectPlace with the financial governance of ChangePoint so users can execute client work collaboratively and flexibly from traditional to agile, while maintaining accurate work details to report financials.

Changepoint is used by our company to track resources by project by hours billed to that project. In addition to tracking resource allocation by project, it is also used for expense reporting that gets billed to the customer, such as airline, rental car, hotel and per diem. It has been a very good tool to work with once you figure out the different bells and whistles it offers. The process flow for the tool is very efficient. Turn around time on time reporting and expense reporting is one week. Checks are auto deposited almost immediately.
  • It handles resource time reporting very efficiently.
  • It handles expense reporting in a very fluid manner.
  • Overall, easy to work with.
  • Changepoint will time out every now and then. You may not realize it, but your data entry has not been saved and then you close out of the application and come back in and your work is gone.
  • Changepoint will remember / store previous projects that have been billed to. Once the project closes, it still brings back the project so over time, your screen gets crowded.
  • Changepoint requires a VPN from remote locations which can pose a problem for frequent travelers. Few, if any, hotels offer a secure wifi and thus connecting to Changepoint can have its challenges
Changepoint offers what a company needs. Project management at the resource level, time reporting and expense reporting. That is all our company uses it for, as I am sure there are other uses for the software. It works for what our company needs it to do. No issues to date at all.
  • I am a PM, so I do not know, nor can I speak to ROI.
Changepoint was selected for its cost and what it can do. I was not involved in the decision to purchase Changepoint, but it appears to be a good decision.

We are a UK-based consulting organization that provides IT services to some 90 pharma companies across the globe. Changepoint solution is used to capture and manage incoming IT demand from our customers - from the initial, early stage of the request and through its maturity, to the point when the request becomes an active project, until its full delivery.
  • Changepoint provides flexibility in terms of the workflow process, allowing a good degree of customization
  • The actions are time-stamped, and whilst Changepoint does not alert the users when things are about to expire, it does provide a timeline
  • It is flexible in regards to the type of information we look to capture on each request
  • Changepoint can be rather buggy and 'clunky'
  • If the system is idle, it logs out the users far too quickly, resulting in wasted time as well as duplication of efforts
  • It is not the most intuitive or user-friendly solution
Changepoint is basic and would, therefore, work for businesses with uncomplicated requests, pretty straightforward workflows and willingness to work with an unsightly solution. It is basic, from the UI to the search option and the way the information is captured, which can be frustrating and counter-intuitive at times.

It is relatively robust (i.e. I have been using it for almost 2 years and have not seen it crash once) but it does log me out when the system has been inactive for about 30 minutes - and I am only notified about being logged out upon clicking the Submit button, meaning many a line of text have been typed more than once!
  • The system time-stamps actions which is useful
  • It is expensive for the quality of experience it provides
  • It is *relatively* reliable in terms of the information management and archiving
  • Regular re-typing and other similar duplication of efforts on a large scale can become rather costly to the organization
The system predates me as I was not working for the company when the solution was chosen - I understand this may have been an 'overpromise, underdeliver' scenario. However, we are now moving towards replacing it with Supportworks - and having seen Supportworks in action I genuinely cannot wait to switch from Changepoint and move on...
