Overall Satisfaction with Clarizen

Clarizen is used to manage and coordinate activities for a portfolio of projects utilizing a shared resource pool. Prior solutions could not adequately manage resource workload. Clarion offers high-level and detailed views so we know that projects will be completed on time.
  • Resource planning
  • Reporting
  • Ad hoc queries
  • Advanced project management
  • Assigning multiple managers to work items
  • License structure supports anemic customization capabilities (Professional) or robust (Enterprise); nothing in between.
  • Clarizen has been the glue that binds together functional groups. Complete and robust scheduling has increases the level of trust between groups.
TeamWorks: Good product but can't handle portfolios and doesn't provide resource management.
Microsoft Project: Expensive. Steep learning curve.
I have had very good experience with Clarizen. The product is robust though could use minor tweaks. Clarizen is on a predictable upgrade cycle and offers great training programs. The customer success managers are knowledgeable and willing to help. I'll continue to promote Clarizen to anyone who will listen.
