Overall Satisfaction with Planisware

Planisware is being used as the authoritative source for R&D planning (timelines) and resource (money and Full Time Employee) estimation.
  • Apply resource algorithms to timelines
  • Enterprise wide and scalable
  • Not a great planning tool for the masses. Planning within the Planisware environment requires significant skill and experience and we've hired planners (not project managers) who can work within the Planisware environment
  • At my current company, I don't think it has had a positive ROI
  • At a previous company, it streamlined turnaround time to generate resource estimates across a large portfolio of projects
I wasn't involved in the selection of Planisware.
A user needs to be clear on what the role of Planisware will be within the planning and reporting environment at your company. If the expectation is that all teams will use Planisware for planning, then you will need to anticipate a steep learning curve for those who are used to working in other planning tools like MicroSoft Project.
