Innotas for Project and time tracking

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2017/02/24
Review Source: Capterra

Innotas has made many improvements this last year which have been great bring the product into the 20th century. However they still have work to do. Adding documents to the project is cumbersome and time consuming. A drag and drop feature would be better and versioning is no longer available. The task enter has been modified but seeing the name of the task is to small they need to make it so you can resize the column. Entering resources on a project is time consuming as you need to enter in 2 places and then on each task. Over all the product is good but with further improvements it could be much better.

Pros

Look and feel

Cons

Entering time, entering resources on project, adding documents and versioning those documents

Project Portfolio Management Software

Used Monthly for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 2019/04/11
Review Source: Capterra

I am a consultant and I help organizations select Portfolio/Program/Project Management software. The range of projects that my client manage per year ranges from 60 project/year to 800 projects/year. The complexity of the project ranges from basic to very complex. I found Planview can adequately accommodate the range and complexity.

Pros

1) Ease of use (learning curve is not steep if you practice regularly)
2) Contains all the elements required to completely manage your portfolios (identification, prioritization, benefit assessment)
3) Good if you want to customize your project lists (or programs). The system gives you many field to add any project features you need. This is especially good if you want to create a portfolio framework at the enterprise level.
4) Very good reporting capabilities and easy to learn and use.

Cons

The costing module requires a bit of knowledge. So before digging into this module spend time with your project costing team to learn the basics. Otherwise ensure to involve your Subject Matter Experts in project costing to set up this module.

I would definitely recommend it. Innotas takes the complexity of portfolio management and drills it down to a sophisticated simplicity. Comprehensive integration with third-party applications and an extensible API further strengthen the case for this solution. Highly recommended.
