Overall Satisfaction with Planview Projectplace

Projectplace is used by various groups throughout our organization. Some departments use it for single projects. Other departments use Projectplace to manage their daily work. We have a few system wide initiatives that have expanded the use of Projectplace. We frequently receive education requests as more individuals are invited to workspaces and assigned work. What is nice about Projectplace is that you do not have to be a PMP or highly technical to learn the application. It is very user-friendly making it a perfect tool for a multidisciplinary team with members from varying backgrounds.
  • Workspaces hold all relevant information for a 'project' all in one place including the project plan, team members, work assignments and status of work, communications, documents, and more. And now workspace reports!
  • Projectplace's online educational tools is one of the best vendor help sites I have ever seen.
  • Planview is regularly advancing their solutions. They really do value customers' feedback and work to implement customers' ideas.
  • The integration to PPM Pro for deeper dives with PPM Pro Dashboards. We are already using PPM Pro Dashboard. The new R2D2 dashboards are great. I want to drive our users to one site for reports. I don't want to have to push them to another location, Projectplace, for another source of reports. That is why an enhanced integration is key.
  • I was very surprised when I was first introduced to Projectplace that there is no financial tracking component in the application. If someone is managing a project, they need a way to manage the budget. Would like to see more tools within Projectplace for tracking budget.
  • We are able to quickly implement system wide initiatives due to the ease of building and rolling out workspaces in a web-based platform.
  • Ability to support remote work was evident with my team during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

Projectplace Customer Support this past year has been positive for all our Planview representatives!
The application is very user-friendly. The document management tool is great. The Customer Success Center is exceptional. Love the new enhancements such as workspace reports! Looking forward to the enhancements coming in the details pane.
I have only used Excel, Outlook Tasks and Notes. No other similar products.
Projectplace, in my opinion, is well suited for any work management need. It is a great tool for the 'accidental project manager' as Planview says. This is so beneficial for a multidisciplinary team with members with a wide range of technical skills an project management skills. It is so easy to use once you start using it! The application provides team collaboration towards a business goal. Using workplace templates, Projectplace can quickly and easily create new work in a manner that drives standardization and with that best practice.
