Overall Satisfaction with RationalPlan

RationalPlan provides our project group with a cost-effective scheduling solution across multiple functions. We run many projects and having a tool that is comparable to MS Project but less than 4x the cost is very appealing. When I have had questions I was able to contact customer service and receive a response quickly. Keep up the great work.
  • Intuitive interface
  • Critical Path Highlighting
  • Baseline Capability
  • Customized Fields
  • Ability to integrate and email persons assigned tasks
  • Duration at top level only in days (no options to change). Not so fun when running multi-year projects and trying to convert to weeks months on the fly in meetings
  • Ability to customize built in reports (even if it was done outside and you had to use fields provided)
  • Printing flexibility for reporting
  • Enables more people to use schedule tool in their work - soft cost, but valuable "thinking schedule" not just tasks.
  • Cost effective - more people can use the technology.
RationalPlan is cost-effective and allows most users to prepare and manage their schedule. The software lacks comprehensive reporting and duration changes at the top level of a project.
The times that I have contacted RationalPlan with questions or suggestions I received a prompt response to address my questions.

Are you happy with RationalPlan's feature set?


Did RationalPlan live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of RationalPlan go as expected?


Would you buy RationalPlan again?


Appropriate as a great alternative to MS Project. RationalPlan provides most of the features needed to develop and maintain mid-level complex schedules.

Less Appropriate for large complex schedules of long duration. These can be a challenge due to Duration at top-level. It is also a challenge to generate reports for management - reporting feature is limited.
