Overall Satisfaction with Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

We are using this product across our entire organization on a global basis. We use it for project planning and timesheets, as well as collaborative work management. This assists us in planning future projects as well as accounting for project time for ongoing project endeavors.
  • Timesheet capture.
  • Resource allocation.
  • Visualizing collaboration patterns.
  • It would be nice if the timesheet mechanism could automatically present users with the company holidays so that they do not have to input this into their individual timesheets.
  • For sure it has allowed us to more closely align business and technology components and concerns. Prior, we had no way of doing this well.
  • We have a better handle on the time our employees spend in meetings. We have been able to provide more productive tasks.
I was not involved in the selection of this product so I do not want to provide inaccurate information on this particular concern.
We did not use professional services. We did the entire implementation in-house and have entrusted key individuals with ensuring that we achieve maximum benefits from our purchase. Our project planning group is large enough, so they handled this.
Having an integrated planning and execution framework through this product is a big win. We have been able to locate project bottlenecks that are internal to our organization and mitigate them. We are also able to juggle resources so that we can have our team members work more efficiently at the organizational level.
The product does this quite well. As we are a global organization with many shared service departments, it has enabled each of the shared service units to synchronize efforts on a project basis as well as an operational level. We are able to see in graphic detail how many operational efforts are involved with many of our projects across all functional areas.
  • We hope to use it to isolate operations from project work in many of our shared service segments. For example, we want to see the amount of time our technical teams spend on redundant efforts.
It well suited to any company, as it has intuitive interfaces when using the various product components. Training is minimal, although there are webcasts for managers that must enter the project information. Since we have only used the product for two years, it is still in its infancy here, and we are still looking at all of the ways it can assist us to perform project planning, budgeting, and project monitoring.
