Overall Satisfaction with Planview Projectplace

Planview is used to manage projects, documents, persons working, and to interact with each other.
With the help of Planview Projectplace my organization is working efficiently by managing all things in one place. It is also accessible by every device, whether it be a laptop, mobile phone, or tablet. In the past, it was used on a trial basis by a few teams. Gradually it has been put into use by the whole organization. Also, teams located in different nations interact on it. In my organization, it is used in the English language.
  • It manages teams very well. Teamwork is the key to success and with the help of [Planview Projectplace], the job is done easily, without any hassle.
  • Everyone involved in a project can very efficiently view the progress or what's next in the pipeline.
  • The most enjoyable feature is the charts. With the help of charts, projects/teams become easy to manage.
  • Another particular feature worth receiving acknowledgment is kanban boards. With the help of it, visualization becomes so simple.
  • Sharing documents, because interacting with teammates is efficient with the help of it.
  • The most important thing is pricing. Big organizations can still afford to use it, but small startups or mid-level companies will have to think twice before choosing it.
  • User Interface (UI) is not as crispy as compared to other tools in the market. The UI can definitely be improved.
  • Slow internet ruins this software usage completely. A lighter version should be available to use when your network is slow.
  • Without proper training, it would be messy to understand and use the software at its full potential. So good training should exist.
  • Projectplace does the work of many different software, all in one, whether it be document sharing or interacting with teammates. Instead of buying different software, we only use this one. Thus, we save up to 30% that would have otherwise been spent on all different software used to perform the same tasks.
  • Calendar management helps to maintain each and every task on the go. Thus, saving time, as we don't have to visit different tools every time. Time is money.
  • It is easy to learn how to use the software and with the provided training it becomes beneficial, as money spent on training is reduced by 100%.

It is great software for the management of projects, teams, and schedules. Support provided by Planview Projectplace is also wonderful. There are in-person trainers, online sessions, and also remotely we can learn how to use Planview Projectplace with recorded videos. Configuration of the tool is not such a hard task when done after understanding the basic things about the software and its functionality.
Planview Projectplace is a great tool to manage and track change in projects. It is also used to manage teams and their members. One very useful feature is document sharing, with the help of it no other software is required. Also, charts are helpful in keeping track of the completed and not yet completed projects. Agility is the basis of this software and it follows it very well. Kanban board is of great use too.
Most of these others don't have many of the features that are available in Planview Projectplace. The agile methodology is in a true sense covered by Planview Projectplace, not by Asana nor Wrike. In Confluence, one has to link up with Jira for full functionality, but in Projectplace that is not the case. We can also integrate other software with Planview Projectplace and they work well with it, but that is not so with the above-mentioned tools.
It is well suited when a team has to work remotely, or when multiple teams are working on the same project in different countries. Some work in the office, while others have outdoor jobs, so it is easy to access from a phone too. Planview Projectplace is not very beneficial for small organizations, as most of their work can also be managed by different tools, and to cut costs they should select different options.
