Overall Satisfaction

We brought Daptiv in to help solve a particular problem. We wanted a tool that could ingest a Microsoft Project file then output a schedule in a customized format. It was used at the team level for managing day to day work. A subset of the whole organization.
  • Supported a customized implementation. In my review I explain that ultimately they were not able to meet our needs, but the level of effort they made to try and accommodate was terrific. We were assigned a technologist that worked with us on site to try and customize the tool to suit our needs. I feel the tool itself, at the time of us using it had potential to be great for the standard Project Management Organization.
  • Found the user interface to be a bit clunky at the time we were using it.
  • Ultimately the product was not able to solve our specific problem in a way that we could use and still be efficient. We hired an employee to do the work of translating schedules to a web view.
As previously mentioned, we were not able to get the product to solve our particular problem. After time spent implementing a custom solution, it was the decision of the executive team to discontinue the agreement. The costs of training the team didn't outweigh the cost of hiring an employee to do the translation of schedules to web view.
Managing small to medium organizations, with a PM team of 5 to 7. Key question, how does it scale? I rated this product where I did because even though the tool was not right for our particular team my understanding of it was enough that I could see how larger groups could use this to run there more larger more complex projects. Still the company worked with us to try and tailor a custom solution that we ultimately did not use.
