    "The best project management solution for team work!"

    November 27, 2011   |   By BusyMum456

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Progress reports and reviews with real time data.
    Easy collaboration and communication between team members.

    Cons

    Clarizen's features mean that if you have a small, simple project that only needs a team of 2 or 3, Clarizen is probably too powerful.

    Summary

    There are many project management solutions available and it is important to look around before deciding which one will fit your needs. If you are a PM with multiple projects, and/or if you run a large team and need to communicate with people in different offices - then Clarizen is the program for you.
    It is a cloud based, SaaS solution, meaning you do not need a technical team to get you up and running.
    Real time visibility means everyone can see exactly what the team is working on, ensuring that time and resources are not wasted.
    Managers get a full picture of the project, while team members only see what they need to know. Communication is easy with built in email, chat and notes.
    Everyone's tasks are clearly defined and deadlines are visible, via the Dashboard (home page). I love the list you get at the beginning of each day showing what is urgent.
    Clarizen also has great online training and a really helpful support service, if you do get stuck.
    I really recommend Clarizen's online project management software.

    "A perfect tool to torture Project Managers"

    November 22, 2011   |   By shree198

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    None. Users have better options. An excel sheet may provide a better solution.

    Cons

    Highly complicated, error prone, difficult to use & understand. Only suited for lengthy projects running for several years. Meaningless representation of unwanted data points. If any organisation wants to waste money on a so called PM tool, then this is the answer

    Summary

    Best avoided... unless an organisation is hell bent on torturing its project managers.

    "Team NOT Project Manager solution"

    December 26, 2007

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Current Project Management solutions are either an overkill of functionality and require much investment and training (e.g. MS Project /EPM) or, to the other extreme, offer very basic To-Do list / Task Management features (e.g. BaseCamp or some open source solutions).

    Clarizen addresses the more common team scenario where a bunch of people (inter or intra organizational), dependent on each other to complete a task/project/process, need to get a project planned and executed collaboratively in order to ensure project success.

    Furthermore, using the applied knowledge capturing features (Such as templates, attached documents, notes and discussions), project structures and data can be reapplied to future projects thereby saving significant time and resources, which at the end of the day is the most precious resource for these teams.

    After using the system for the 30-day free trial period, my team came to conclusion that the time savings and collaborative nature of Clarizen's SaaS product will significantly boost our productivity level and strengthen our competitive positioning without the need to increase our headcount by a single person.

    Cons

    It takes a while to get the hang of the web-based solution, especially if you come from the world of MS Project. As opposed to those endless Gantt charts, Clarizen's unique project Roadmap illustrations are by far more informative, dynamic and useful for getting the bird's-eye view of projects.

    Same goes for Reporting. Coming from the Excel and Project world, you are constantly seeking that one-click 'Report' button. With Clarizen the entire Home Page (Dashboard) is a living report that offers up to the minute info about any given project.

    Note: From what I am told, Clarizen will introduce advanced reporting features in Q1 2008, and allow exporting to Excel.

    "A great project management tool for every team. Intuitive, feature-rich and cool"

    December 26, 2007   |   By Eric.aldridge

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Web based (nothing to install) with free 30-day trial. Does not require any training, yet packed with powerful features that make it easy to manage many projects. It's one of the only tools that really allow the team to work together. Allows reporting on task progress via email -- very cool!

    Cons

    Some advanced features are missing, but the fact that this is the first tool my team is actually using on a daily basis more than compensates these minor gaps.
