Overall Satisfaction with Planview Projectplace

I was first introduced to Planview Projectplace while working with a client in construction during the pandemic. The client runs multiple projects at a time that need several teams to work together and Planview Projectplace was their solution of choice as it was reliable enough to handle their multi-team projects. It was chosen primarily because it could connect teams of 50+ in different departments working in multiple locations on construction projects together. The ability to work together in real time improved their productivity and also helped them adapt to working through a pandemic. They primarily use English as the default language for Planview Projectplace.
  • As a cloud based solution, Projectplace is one of the few true multiple location, multi person project management tools available for large teams. The reliability for large projects (with teams of anywhere between 50-200+ people) was a huge selling point for this and I witnessed this first hand.
  • The Windows and Mac applications for Projectplace are well designed and work impressively well for a project management tool. I found most of the teams had either application installed on their machine and did not have any complaints about it.
  • Features like AI and project management viewing styles like Kanban, Ganntt and others make the experience customizable for each user and made them adapt it to their preferred project management style.
  • It is quite pricey for smaller organizations when you compare the annual cost, there are many other solutions that can get the job done for less. In this regard, it is viewed more as an enterprise solution than a solution for any business of any size.
  • While it is a good project management tool, it can be overwhelming to use if you have a lot of tasks and project info to sort through since it is not as intuitive as other project management tools. You may need to have a dedicated person to keeping bigger projects organized.
  • Productivity was up 17% since the implementation of Projectplace and more than 50% of teams say they log into Projectplace at least twice a day to review projects and complete tasks assigned to them.
  • While it is not entirely intuitive, many of the client's employees have integrated it into their daily routine which means they are seeing more use across departments. Also with some teams still working remotely, they are still able to keep in touch and work on projects through Projectplace.

I have no complaints over the support. Key information is there, and there is a good knowledgebase to find info on any features or learn how to use it better.
There is a learning curve if you are coming from a less feature rich project management tool, but if you have used tools like MS Project and enterprise levels of Asana etc, you will be fine. Since I have experience with the aforementioned two I found that Projectplace was not that difficult to get used to.
Microsoft Project has more features than Planview Projectplace but can be a bit difficult to get used to. I find that Projectplace is a balance between Asana and Microsoft Projects in terms of features. Projectplace shines in its ability to handle large projects better han Asana would, whereas Microsoft Project is the standard for enterprise project management.
I would say based on what I saw first hand that Projectplace is a great project management tool for large teams and if you can afford it, you will reap the benefits. Unlike other solutions, it is designed specifically to handle large projects and teams and I would say you get what you pay for here. Construction, Finance and big enterprise can benefit largely from it. My experience with it was primarily in the construction industry so I think it very well suited to that industry.
