Overall Satisfaction with Planview Projectplace

We are using Projectplace as a coordination and management tool among the different partners of a European project, both from industry and academia. Here, at Instituto de Telecomunicações, Projectplace is being by our group only in the context of this international project, and we only use English as the official language.

Pros

  • A set of different tools to manage meetings, documents, members, Gantt charts, etc. all integrated into the same framework.
  • Document version control.
  • Desktop application to locally store and update files.

Cons

  • A meeting platform functionality, such as GoToMeeting or Skype for Business, would be very valuable.
  • The possibility to integrate with other platforms, like software development tools or repositories (GitLab), would be nice.
  • Maybe a collaboration hub similar to Slack would be useful.
  • We are a research institute, so we don't focus on ROI or business objectives.
I started to use ONLYOFFICE also very recently, so I don't have a very detailed idea of how it compares with Projectplace, but from my initial contact, I can say that Planview seems much more complete and with a lot more functionalities. So, if possible, I would like to continue using Projectplace in all my projects.
It's a very great tool for project management, especially in an international scope. Maybe for small scale local projects it's not the most appropriate tool, but maybe I am wrong, since I've never used for that scenario. In any case, for project management and collaboration with other international partners, Planview Projectplace is a fantastic framework.

    Hi João! Thank you so much for taking the time to review Projectplace and thank you for the positive feedback! I’m also happy to inform you that most of the things you are currently missing, are actually supported in Projectplace. In Q2 we will release a native integration with Slack! The integration will trigger updates in Projectplace from a Slack channel. We also offer a lot of other integration possibilities through Zapier. Here’s a help article on the subject: https://success.planview.com/Projectplace/Integrations/Integrate_Projectplace_with_other_online_services Kind regards Anna Öhrlund Customer Marketing Manager for Planview Projectplace & Planview LeanKit
