Overall Satisfaction with Planview Projectplace

We are using Planview Projectplace only in those departments where projects require both Kanban boards and Gantt charts. That is quite unique feature, to our best knowledge, provided solely by Planview Projectplace. The platform is used by distributed teams located in multiple countries in Central Europe and Scandinavia. In the company, we are working with English only, therefore one language version is used by us.
  • Kanban board and Gantt charts in one place.
  • Integrated with Zoom Meetings.
  • Flexible way of handling roadmaps and portfolios.
  • In would be nice to see more configuration options for Kanban boards e.g. card types, subtasks
  • Notification emails are somewhat hard to set up properly.
  • Zoom Meetings are great, but better UX would be highly appreciated.
  • Integration with Zoom Meetings improved our overall efficiency.
  • Stakeholders are much happier due to insight they now have into project planning and reporting.
  • Web based Gantt charts allow much quicker response in case of any incoming issues.

It would be really hard to complain about Planview Projectplace support. Their response time is super fast and it is very easy to contact them through one of available contact channels i.e. phone, live chat or submitting a ticket. Additionally, their always up-to-date Top 25 FAQs helped us several times and as a result we did not have to contact Customer Care team at all.
Overall usability of Planview Projectplace has to be rated as top notch. All functionalities are well thought through and easy to understand. In our case, it was hardly ever that a newcomer had any problems with navigating through various areas of the platform. Additionally, it seems that existing features are continuously being improved.
As already mentioned, Planview Projectplace includes both Kanban board and Gantt charts which is quite uncommon feature on the market. Very often it is a matter of personal taste regarding which software solution suites all our needs in the most complete way, but based on our involvement Planview Projectplace really has it all.
From our experience Planview Projectplace works perfectly well for small to medium sized distributed Lean or Agile teams developing projects where usage of Gantt charts is beneficial. On the other hand, according to our research Planview Projectplace is not an excellent fit for companies with huge user base i.e. thousands of concurrent users.
