Finally! Visibility into programs with shared resources

Reviewed on 2015/06/08
Review Source

I was part of the marketing team that used Projectplace at Planview to help plan and manage integrated marketing programs where we had shared (and limited) content and design resources. and also found many other ways to use it collaborate with teams around the company including sales for sales enablement programs. Previously we used sharepoint to submit design and web requests and it often felt like a black hole. With Projectplace, not only was I able to see the status of a deliverable at any given time so could my manager and other team members on that project. The tool also enabled real-time collaboration with comments, @ mentions, document management, timelines etc.

Pros

- Helps reduce meetings because you are able to collaborate within the tool
- Visibility across teams and individuals. This is important because you can identify potential delays (due to resource availability, review cycles etc) much earlier and avoid the number of late projects
- Document management is great! Having this built in rather than linking out to external drives and sites streamlines processes
-Kanban board functionality is so simple and customizable for what makes most sense to your team
- Streamlined the review process on design and content creation
- Flexible enough to fit the needs of any type of team across the company and between teams

Cons

Really these are just feature requests, nothing that really impacts the functionality or value that is delivered:
-User interface could be refreshed and streamlined
-Some of the logic of click paths and icons are not always that intuitive
-Customization options to allow you to select which features you need for certain projects, some won't need the full set of tabs and features available
-Calendars are default to run M-Sun which I believe in common in Europe. Need the ability to select what day your week starts
-Would love to see some type of integration with Salesforce or Marketing Automation platforms
- Improved dashboards and reports would be ideal

Excellent Software for Website Team Management!

After having tried many Team Management software programs and apps over the years, I learned about and have come to really like ProjectPlace. It allows you to break down each series, article, promotion, etc. into steps and it lets your team know who is responsible for what and when the deadline is. It presents information in a highly visual and dynamic form that keeps my team motivated.

There are several nice features about ProjectPlace. The main one is the flexibility. It provides you with a framework of core Team Management action items. You can take that framework and use it however is best for your team.

ProjectPlace makes it incredibly simple, and if for some reason you are still stuck, it has little bubbles on the screen that take you through what each section does until you get the hang of it, which will be fast.

I highly recommend ProjectPlace if you decide to work with a team from the beginning of your blog. It also gives you the ability to work with a team that is scattered all over. Have a friend in Paris who is an amazing photographer? No reason to not work with her because she can't meet you for coffee to plan a project! Even if you are just working by yourself, it makes successful blogging far more manageable and less daunting, which is a huge key to sustaining a blog long term.

I received access to ProjectPlace in exchange for testing and my unbiased review and I was compensated for my time and effort, however, my experience with the product and the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine.

Pros

Very easy to use interface. Easy to understand and assign tasks to peers. The boards and phases help manage projects effectively

Cons

The software is way too expensive for the time it saves. This makes it a less value for money alternative in the market

Pros

I like the Kanban style boards but I felt that their timeline was clunky and hard to use. It helps with general team collaboration

Cons

Not the most user friendly project management tool in the market. It lacks character and it was boring.

From disorganized hard/soft notes to a centralized software where I can keep track of my projects and share them with whoever is part of it.

Pros

The ability to document each part of my project, the easiness to navigate. Also the capacity that the site had to upload mega files.

Cons

The "download" option for documents is sort of hidden. It would be nice to have the download option next to the file, or somewhere more visible.

What is Projectplace?

A comprehensive solution that allows teams and organizations to plan, visualize, and keep track of their projects in real time, Projectplace is a no-installation, ready-to-go project management solution for companies with stakeholders spread across several different locations. It breaks down time zone and geographical barriers, streamlining communication across global organizations while minimizing travel costs.

Projectplace is equipped with the necessary visualization and workflow monitoring tools so you’re always on top of your tasks and projects, deliverables, priorities, and deadlines. With digital kanban boards, you can assign, execute, and collaborate on daily tasks with other team members. Documents are stored securely in the cloud in one centralized location, and Projectplace’s powerful built-in tools, such as instant messaging and online meetings, foster teamwork, engagement, and transparency.

Despite its focus on collaboration and teamwork, Projectplace implements role-based access controls so that access privileges are commensurate to user roles within the organization, e.g., external collaborators can view files and other data but not edit them.

Gantt charts show task timelines and dependencies in a visual and easy-to-digest format.

Projectplace Main Features

Task Management

With Projectplace, users can plan and execute tasks collaboratively using the digital kanban boards. Tasks are assigned on cards, and depending on their actual progress, can be moved from one status column to another. A clear overview of who is working on what can be seen easily with Projectplace.

Projectplace comes with an action planning tool that enables you to plan your team’s daily activities, set priorities, and assign issues to team members. It also has built-in project templates so you don’t always have to start from scratch when planning your projects.

Cards on your digital kanban board show how a task is progressing, who's responsible for what, what still needs to be done, and so on.

Document Management

Projectplace’s document management system enables users to upload images, documents, and other files that can be shared with colleagues and other users. The app’s document version control functionality ensures users are always working on the most recent file version, and that, if needed, they can go back to a previously saved version. Projectplace also comes with a document locking feature that prohibits other users from making changes to a document you’re currently working on.

There is a changes tracking and usage audit function to monitor how files and documents are being used and when, and to foster accountability among users. Documents can be referred to in your Projectplace conversations or in cards in your kanban board. Documents from third-party apps such as Google Docs can also be accessed and shared via Projectplace.

Document upload is as easy as dragging and dropping files from your computer to your Projectplace document screen, or by connecting third-party document management apps such as Box or Dropbox.

Real-Time Collaboration

Successful team-based projects have one thing in common: effective communication, which, however, doesn’t just happen from out of the blue. Aside from commitment, a schedule, and a set of guidelines that everyone adheres to, collaborators are equipped with the right set of tools to foster a potent communication system.

Projectplace’s smart and user-friendly collaboration tools allow teams to communicate in the most efficient way possible. Internal and external stakeholders are able to brainstorm and communicate through online meetings, email, instant messaging, or through links to personalized project sites. Chat groups can be created, and screens can be shared with up to 100 online meeting participants.

Projectplace is equipped with communication tools such as group chat, online meetings, and email to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Workload Management

Resource conflict and tasks overload are two of the reasons why project delivery timelines aren’t achieved, resulting in delays, actual costs greater than the allocated budget, and a chaotic team relationship, among other things. With Projectplace, you get a workload management tool that shows you an overview of all scheduled projects and the resources assigned to each.

It allows you to immediately spot which resources are overbooked so that some of their workload can be assigned to others who are available.

Projectplace shows you, at a glance, the people who are overbooked, and how many tasks are overdue, ongoing, and planned for each team member.

Reports and Analytics

Reports are a vital component of project management. They show the performance of your projects against targets or benchmarks. Projectplace has a report management functionality that enables you to present project data as updates useful to investors, stakeholders, project managers, and other partners.

Projectplace’s Enterprise edition covers basic reporting that includes summary reports of all projects in a portfolio. Relevant data can be filtered and viewed in real time, extracted into a report, and subsequently sent to clients and other stakeholders. With Projectplace, you can seamlessly generate reports for tasks, time spent on projects per member, costs, project statuses, milestones, work plans, document access rights, kanban boards, and so on.

Projectplace carries various standard reports like project status reports and time reports.

Projectplace Integrations

Projectplace integrates with the following third-party apps: Dropbox, Google Drive, and Google Docs for document management; Mikogo for online meetings; and OneLogin, Ping Identity, and Okta for single sign-on. A Projectplace API is likewise available for custom integrations.

Projectplace Pricing
