Über Planview AdaptiveWork
Stärke Teams und liefere die Arbeit, die wichtig ist, mit der Planview Clarizen Arbeits- und Projektportfolio-Managementsoftware für Unternehmen.
I really like the Clarizen customer attention as well; it's very professional. Clarizen licensing is really competitive also.
The licensing model is a bit awkward when adding licenses to an existing account. The Gantt functionality is outdated.

The best tracking project system.
Kommentare: It is an amazing project tracking system, has help us to improve the tracking of our projects and avoid delays. To add notes or comments to task and projects help to find issues and help us to increase the quality.
Easy to use. You can assign the resources for a project easily, see their advance and request progress report. With few clicks you can get a global stand point of a project and see risk point and define next steps to do. You can integrate it with outlook and get your contacts. You can access from any device.
There is not a desktop application, would be nice to count with that.
We can manage time, and financial affairs and track project progress accurately.
Kommentare: The high-quality automation provided by Planview AdaptiveWork helped us prepare schedules in detail, as well as when making updates, we can extract all the information that expresses the fact of project completion, and we can also find expected delivery dates, as well as we can calculate delays, and manage the financial affairs of the project efficiently.
with Planview AdaptiveWork, We can understand the project's actual situation and manage all our projects with high accuracy. Preparing time programs by Planview AdaptiveWorkis very organized and helps link activities and areas with correct relationships. Scheduling is done automatically to find the start and end dates for activities. It is excellent that Planview AdaptiveWork provides all the necessary contracting contracts and helps calculate the actual delay periods for claims. As for calculating the exact completion percentages and comparing them to the planned ones, Planview AdaptiveWork is excellent for this purpose. We can also follow up on the financial affairs efficiently, and the reports and charts that we prepare by Planview AdaptiveWork help to understand the project's financial situation properly.
It is not easy to use, as a planning and scheduling specialist needs to understand all the tools and how they work correctly. Anyone who wants to take advantage of Planview AdaptiveWork's potential should spend appropriate time learning and training.
PM tool is not bad, but integrated time/expense/invoice processing did not work.
Kommentare: We got very little benefit from this software, as it did not perform as expected.
Project management tool is comparable to MS Project. Users that are looking for a subscription PM product rather than purchasing MS Project may benefit from this software, but I am not sure if all PM features are available out-of-the-box at cheaper subscription levels.
Although the PM tool is comparable to MS Project, it also comes with a level of complication also comparable to MS Project. Full functionality of PM (i.e. including resource management) requires buy-in by all departments/users in the company, and this is difficult to acheive in large or diverse organizations. Our company implemeted this software with the goal of bringing project management together with time reporting, expense reporting, and invoice processing. The purpose of implementing Clarizen was to have a centralized system where we could report project status by including all relevant metrics on the project in a list or detailed view, e.g. planned time vs. actual time, planned cost vs. actual cost, and project manager comments/narrative on goal vs. result. This purpose was never realized. Clarizen underestimated the work effort to develop customizations, which resulted in the time module never being completed, the expense/invoice modules were cumbersome to use, the related approval workflows had many problems, and support from Clarizen management was almost non-existent. We are now taking a different approach. No longer do we believe that one system can handle all our needs, and so we have adopted different systems with some integration between them to try to bring together all project-related data.
Awesome project management tool
Awesome project management tool and is all you need. Team-wise task tracking becomes easy like a breeze.
Just a little bit of expensive when your number of users increases.
A mostly positive experience.
Kommentare: We are implementing Clarizen as a project management tool for the entire organization but starting in the Information Technology and Performance Improvement departments. Our goal is to capture all project requests and projects in one place for review, approval, management, and reporting. Clarizen has mostly met our expectations so far. Most of the items that have not met our expectations are minor. We are still early in our implementation so there are still lessons to learn in our journey.
1. Unlimited email-only users. Resources that infrequently or rarely work on projects can report progress via email without consuming an expensive license. 2. Email and/or API integration with work order systems. Clarizen doesn't charge an expensive license to integrate it with other systems. 3. A modern-looking user interface with an emphasis on social media-like collaboration. 4. Lots of options for charts and graphs for reporting. 5. Can import spreadsheets and MS Project workplans. 6. Lots of training and support webinars every week. 7. Pre-recorded online training via the Clarizen University.
1. Support seems slow to respond to support requests. 2. There is currently a bug they haven't fixed yet that requires you to keep resetting column widths in reports and dashboards. They don't stick. 3. Their online self-help knowledge base seems new and thin. 4. They don't have a feature I used in other project management software to identify the last (most recent) note, comment, etc. on an item. This can be worked around via user training or some custom workflow programming but it would be nice if they built it in as others have.
Everything we needed to take our team to the next level
Kommentare: We needed to evaluate how we could best deliver a quick first time to value for our customers on our implementation team.
Clarizen enabled our team to effectively manage the numerous projects we had while surfacing the insights we needed to make business decisions.
Like any software that is aimed at solving complex business problems, Clarizen had so many features that it became overwhelming to our team during implementation. When a business has to undergo major changes to their operations, it needs the transition to be as easy as possible. This is more of a critique for most large software solutions as opposed to just Clarizen.
Clarizen a great Project Management Tool
Kommentare: My team has used Clarizen for a little over a year now. I cannot say enough good things on how well it has done for my team and organizing the implementations of our Software. My team from an employee level up to management are able to use Clarizen to run their individual days and teams. We implement time and attendance software for clients and use Clarizen to organize our Projects with our specific timelines that we have. Clarizen makes it easy for employees to know exactly where they are at with all of their clients and allows management to easily track the progress of their teams.
Customization. I cannot say enough on how exceptional the Clarizen technical team is with taking our needs and making them happen in the system. One specific example is I formulated a scoring system for incoming clients that based upon how they were going to use our system would be given a "complexity" score so that I could assign higher level clients to my best employees and lower level clients to my lesser experienced employees. Clarizen took my request that I submitted and within a month had the entire scoring system automated and up and running giving me a fantastic tool to use daily.
Pricing. Clarizen needs to be able to add options on as fixed costs instead of raising the overall monthly rate. My team doesn't use every aspect of the program so when I need more of just one option in the system I shouldn't have to pay for a higher level across the board with more of all their options when I need just one. I am hoping that can change in the future to meet individual client needs.
SAAS based project management platform, scalable, with team collaboration, great dash-boarding
ease of use scalable Social Service and Support customizations Updates Adaptability Financial Management
Cost Agile framework needs attention Reporting Graphs are limited in selection limited amount of Graphs per report Scheduling options are limited to 24 reports , 1 per hour
Clarizen's deep set of tools
Kommentare: We've used Clarizen for a few years now, and it's made a huge difference. I came in with project management experience, but many of our managers were just winging it. We moved from a simple time-tracking application to Clarizen's full fledged Project Management. That was a bigger step than most were ready for, but it's come into its own. We have visibility to things we didn't have before, and can make data-driven decisions instead of gut-feeling our way along. I've been able to prove that instinct was not the correct choice in many cases. Clarizen won't tell you what to do, but whatever you want to do, you can probably do it with Clarizen. Other packages I've used gave you a methodology with their software, but Clarizen is flexible, nimble, and robust.
-Lots of customization -SQL-like API calls -Detailed data -Does what it says on the tin
-Lack of a canned process for organizations that don't know where to start -I wish it was cheaper :)
Very easy to track time and keep projects organized.
Does not have great options to export the timesheets into other formats.
Kommentare: My organization selected Clarizen from a wide array of project management software options just over 2 years ago and we're very happy with our decision. We're a training organization, so slack built into most projects is used up before we get the handoff. This means we must be very efficient and well-coordinated. Clarizen gives us what we need all in a single application. Social, email, file attachment/link to work items... prevent us from checking multiple sources for information. We've customized Work Plans and documentation templates our project managers use to quickly execute tasks. The social functions have replace our Outlook email and we've found that makes projects much more transparent and eliminates hidden agendas that often hit projects. Clarizen support is phenomenal! We have a dedicated expert that currently meets with us every other week and I get quick resolution to any issue posted to their Support Request Center. The dedicated expert has been especially helpful as we're constantly customizing the system to the point that it will soon become the training department's operating system with schedules, timesheets, project plans... everything right in Clarizen.
All in one; Social, Work Plans, Scheduling...
The User Guide is useless.
Full Featured Project Management Software
Kommentare: Clarizen is the foundation of our project management process. It provides a wide range of features and customization to support the needs of our design team, project managers, production, upper management and sales staff. With customized reports, each team member can see the data that is important to them. With customized views estimating can see what is important to them, sales can see that they need and project management can see their information. The dashboards are great to show a snapshot of how many projects are doing. It is obvious the people at Clarizen have put a lot of time and effort developing and refining the project management process. It's a great program to get everyone on your team involved
The almost unlimited features and options
There are almost too many choices, it takes a while to really gain a full understanding of how everything works
Kommentare: We used Clarizen for our project management. It is easy to learn, user friendly and our employees love it.
The user friendliness of Clarizen can not be beat. Recently, our company moved to Clarizen for project tracking and the transition couldn't have been easier. Employees rave about the ease of the system.
If i had to choose, the disconnect between Projects and tasks on the same view. It would be nice to have these without the need of workflows to integrate them.
Best Online Project Tool
Kommentare: Clarizen is so easy to use, the vast majority of users were up and running within minutes . The powerful social module incorporates item level in context discussions within each project, even to a task level. Flexibility is a strong feature, and the ability to track financial data across the entire project makes the tool a powerful asset in any business
Interface is intuitive. Plenty of awesome functionality
More Drag and Drop features would be nice , and possibly Agile standard out the box included
Great tool for collaboration
Kommentare: Great product that allows for a ton of flexibility. It's been great to be able to customize for the specific needs of each team, yet still have all teams in the same product.
The level to which you can customize, create custom actions and workflows, etc. is the best part of the product
Implementation can be tricky. Your instance starts with everything turned on, it would be better to start with a minimal instance and turn things on as you need to implement.
Clarizen is a highly configurable and easy to learn application that suits our business needs!
Kommentare: It is really good for indepth project management with a lot of tools available. Can be a pain in the ass to configure when the application need to so specific for your organization. (Recommend to use a IT projectmanager, Clarizen does not provide this or they just leave the project without any reason)
The massive functionality of designing the software to the specific needs in detail. Generating Reports from all kinds of data to be viewed by manageres and to control projectmanagement on a deeper level. It is a highly manageable application that can be used in all kinds of situations.
The ability to adapt the softwares permissions on a field level could not be done. Permissions can only be set to action buttons. One property card per module per user profile was for our situation not the best option. The user manual could also be expanded on a more detailed level. Clicking on a question mark icon (linked to the user manual) displayed the exact same information as hovering over it. It was not giving the best information so we had to contact support instead of a simple answer in the user manual.
Strong PPM with excellent customization
The core PPM capabilities of Clarizen are very strong, but the biggest game change for us has been the 'custom objects' capability. This feature has allowed us to completely replace a legacy product management tool, running it as an integrated component of our Clarizen setup. Product and Project objects are linked together within a single system so that many business processes (item set-up, pricing approvals, product portfolio management) are happening within the same space as project management for new products.
Generally speaking, more functionality drives complexity in the user interface, and Clarizen is no different. It results in steeper learning curves vs. less full-featured solutions. Our hope is that Clarizen Go will help us solve this challenge for ordinary collaborators.
Clarizen for Change, Progress, and Satisfaction
Kommentare: Clarizen allows our project managers to effectively manage and schedule action items to ensure completion dates are met and project dependencies do not go unnoticed. With Clarizen our team excels to meet deadlines and ensure client satisfaction.
The ability to schedule and create task dependencies, view road maps of project progress, track time per individual project tasks, and report on a managers current work load.
The ability to learn and grasp concepts for project scheduling and schedule management. PRO TIP: Use templates and other built in task management features to effectively plan and project a projects plan.
It Can Do Just About Anything...*
Kommentare: *...with the right knowledge of programming or significant investment in their custom programming services. If you can think it, Clarizen can probably do it. It's that flexible. That's my all-encompassing endorsement of the app. It's just that good! On the downside, the app can be a little slow at times--mainly slow page loads or inconsistent page refreshing. There are minor oddities and head-scratchers here and there (like it won't load more than 50 items on a page at a time without waiting for a further page reload), but we've been willing to settle for those quirks in exchange for the system's incredible flexibility and powerful tools, configuration, filtering, reporting, etc. One other thing that is of note... we have been using the app for 2 years and have had at least 4 different account reps. And they all have three things in common: they tend to want to only speak with you by appointment, they seem to be in a hurry when they do speak to you, and they are always ready and willing to sell you something without listening very well. So just be prepared for that and demand that they slow down. Tech support is thorough, but slow and sometimes it takes a while to get resolution to issues that aren't life-threatening. All-in-all, we've found Clarizen to be the most flexible, versatile, powerful tool out there. All of the people we've dealt with are likable and eager to help...just not on our terms, which is the place they could improve the most.
Clarizen more than project management
Kommentare: Clarizen was brought into our company as a project management solution. We quickly learned that it is so much more than that and soon it was in all parts of our company.
Clarizen is easy to customize and has a wonderful roadmap and gantt chart.
It is designed for people to go in an update their own work, however, it seems hard to get buy in. Therefore, the PMs still end up doing most of the work.
PM tool for any application
Kommentare: It makes us work collaboratively in a global organization.
Its capability to be applied for wide applications and the customer support
The customizations are little tricky even though the syntax are not so complicated
A Powerful Suite Backed By an Excellent Team
The system allows you to create a project that is as complex or as simple as you desire. They have the capability for very complex projects.
Support for custom project hierarchies based on users or their groups. This would allow separate business units to see project categories without seeing the projects within those categories.
Best management tool with coolaborative options
Great new social media and project management collaboration tools with V6. Creating and saving templates is much more intuitive in this new release.
It doesn't play well with IE; processing time is way too long. There is a substantial delay when working in IE with the application.
Best workplace tool with good communication features
it offers a very good platform to discuss specific tasks or projects between the project team and do resource allocation.
The interface was hard to navigate (e.g., you'd have to click multiple times to get to some of the screens you needed to use most).
All in one place
Kommentare: Clarizen brings all of our previously disparate levers and knobs into one package. Since deploying, they have constantly upgraded and innovated to allow for more capability and smoother operation. The API has proven strong for us, and the customization means we can use it exactly how we like. Mobile and Outlook integration have proven valuable as well. We can present our users with multiple ways to use the technology so that they can pick the method they feel most comfortable with. My remark to our VP: "We're going to put success right out in front of you, where you can grab it." Our support has been excellent. Multiple people from Clarizen have supported us not only through the transition and rollout, but well beyond. When I need support, I get it, fast.
Vast behind-the-scenes tech support just about any environment, from micro to huge. You can use it how you want, you don't have to adopt a philosophy for your processes unless you want to do so. The best software support I get.
Reports and Templates, while great to have, need an interface overhaul and greater capability. Visualization of data could be better.
