    Great work management software that is customisable and easy to use. The user interface is mostly intuitive, and is attractive.Since we started using Workfront, visibility of project progress has been dramatically improved across our Professional Service teams. I traffic manage the workload of six teams, each with members distributed across the EMEA region and Workfront is the tool that has enabled me to manage this effectively, gradually improving processes, and hence efficiency.Document storage and Centralised communication have helped improve efficiency both within teams and across teams, and post-project reporting has helped refine processes.

    Pros :

    • It is extremely easy to use, and the ability to create custom fields and forms enables me to track the metrics that matter to me.
    • We have developed an end-to-end workflow from client request for scoping, to raising SOWs, to project delivery and post-project reporting.
    • Resource grids that enable me to see how much work each team member has on by day, week or month, and how that rolls up to the team level. I have visibility of who is over-allocated, and who has the capacity for extra work, enabling me to re-allocate work to load balance the team. The granular nature of this data is drawn from task level information on duration and effort, and this is vital as many projects are very quick turnaround (3 days), and often assets arrive late, or requested dates change at the last minute, so I need to quickly be able establish what is achievable, and adjust things to ensure both then client and team members are happy. Work front has been the best tool I have used in helping me achieve that.
    • Great customer support.

    Cons :

    • Reporting using charts should be improved - I currently export a few complex reports to Excel in order to create the charts that I need.
    • The Resource Grids, while excellent, use Flash rather than native code, and hence can be slow to load.

    Clarizen offers a complete project management solution for small to mid enterprises. It is a well-planned, well-built system with nominal quirks.

    Pros :

    • Clarizen is highly extensible, and scalable.
    • The interface is clean, and they can support any methodology you throw at it: waterfall, agile, etc.
    • Nearly every field is either editable or customization, and integration with Jira and Salesforce really set the tone as a 1-2-3 PSA solution.
    • In addition, the support is great.
    • There aren't too many SaaS solutions out there that actively listen to their customers like Clarizen.

    Cons :

    • There are a few quirks. As a PM on the go, you are not going to be happy with the Android app.
    • Also, you will need the Enterprise version at the minimum to get the custom features needed to assimilate Clarzien truly into your PMO.

    A simple to use interface, powerful features, seamless integration of functionalities, and efficient pricing makes activeCollab an excellent tool to be used for project management. It is ideal for people who deal with making proposals for projects, managing project deadlines and adhering to its timelines, negotiating with customers and suppliers, project budgeting and estimation, collaborating with a team and invoicing.

    ActiveCollab is different from many of the other software listed as it is ONLY available as a stand alone install, meaning you purchase a license, download and install on a server, and work on it yourself. This is good for a number of reasons, and may cause some concerns.

    Ease-of-useThe ease of use for timesheet input for employees was so-so. The ease of use for billing/invoicing was very difficult.FunctionalityIt met our needs for for time tracking. It didn't for invoicing/using overhead rates, etc.Product QualityIf you are in IT, it's probably good. I'm very disappointed in anaconda version not meeting our needs.Customer SupportIt was great when they were charging us an extra fee per year for support. After that, even if we found a bug (and we found a lot), it was very difficult getting answers quickly; it took days of back and forth.Likes BestI like that it's cloud-based.Likes LeastIt's difficult to get set up, but it's geared more for IT/software than for professional service/engineering. They increased our annual renewal rate by 700% and gave us less than 2 week notice to renew. You can't see the budget hours easily when viewing the tasks or logging time. You have to dig to find the information. Reporting is not slick enough for our industry.RecommendationsMake sure you can set up your overhead rates/billing rates as needed.

    Yes it is project management but the way licensing works along with a lack of customization (I just want to see the tasks I am assigned) make this tool the most convoluted and stressful part of my job. Why can't I receive an email when I have a new task? I can't pin open the sidebar navigation so i am constantly opening it to figure out what I need to go to. Document management is atrocious.
