"The handling and administration of Monday.com are manageable even for beginners."
"The most valuable aspect is tagging certain employees for certain tasks."

"Monday.com is effortless to use. You can customize it to adapt to your needs and work style. The product is beautiful and intuitive, which makes the work enjoyable."
"The solution offers the simplicity of use with no need for 'experts' to build a suitable product for us (like Salesforce does, for example)."
"There were probably about five or six metrics that we used. As a result, the groups that I supported were consistently ranked at the absolute top of the organization, as we were leveraging these built-in tools for tracking."
"The dynamism of the application where you can modify it to fit your needs is valuable. For example, you can create fields, metrics, and measures on the fly. You don't have to be limited to what the out-of-the-box format would be. It allows you to generate fields, metrics, and reports off of that with relative ease."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM is a high-value product that helps users become productive. It's a very stable, scalable, and fast platform, even from a self management perspective."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is the XFlow, that interface is pretty cool."
"It's very good out of the box, without configurations required."
"The most useful feature for me as an implementer of Broadcom Clarity PPM is its extensibility. The tool is pretty extensible, and I haven't had any issues with it in terms of it getting used for multiple scenarios and for multiple clients where there's a need for high customization. Broadcom Clarity PPM is a very, very customizable tool, so you can pretty much implement any business process on it with no issues."
"The interfaces for project management, portfolio management, and reporting services are always helpful."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM's most valuable feature is the plenty of modules, such as portfolio, project, resource, and time."
"We like the status report feature. It is something really valuable."
"The most valuable features of ServiceNow Strategic Portfolio Management are the multiple methodology possibilities for projects. It has hybrid, traditional, and Agile capabilities. Additionally, the solution integrates well with other platforms, such as Microsoft Azure."
"The stability is excellent. ServiceNow is one of the leading platforms when it comes to stability."
"Competitive in terms of research"
"The performance is good."
"As a product, the primary reason we like it is it gets integrated with our ITSM solution so that we don't have to go for an external product for project management like Jira."
"The resource manager is useful."
"It's a very complete solution."
"I would love to see better integration with Google Suite."
"If Monday.com could increase the refresh rate of the site, that would make things a little better."
"The new Apple Mac Book Pro lineup was launched more than two years ago and still, this platform is not compatible with the Mac App."
"A more personalized dashboard displaying each account's unfinished assignments would be helpful."
"While I appreciate the templates, some of them are extremely complex and not as tailored to non-profit work so they required quite a bit of customizing (but worth the trouble)."
"The product can be improved by allowing for some sort of autonomous deadline creation."
"It would be good to include more automated features that are easy to set up between different boards."
"The marketing notification emails from Monday.com are really poor and of little value to the user."
"One of the major pain points for me when it comes to Broadcom Clarity PPM is the new UI. The new UI is very good in terms of functionality and the drag and draw features, but it's not very responsive. When I say that it's not very responsive, what I mean is that sometimes, the tool is not very user-friendly. For example, a user saves a value on the form, but the tool doesn't give any indication to the user that the value has been saved. Some users are moving from the classic UI to the new UI, and end up getting confused because on the classic UI, when you click "Save", it'll save the information and you'll get an indication that it was saved. With the new UI, it auto saves the information, but it doesn't give an indication in the form of a popup box that "this form has been saved", or any type of message indicating that the information was successfully saved. It's been confusing for users who move to the new UI because of that. The users don't understand when the values are being saved or not being saved, even if there's an auto-save feature in the new UI."
"Whenever that second instance of Clarity came about, it was overwhelming even to people who were accustomed to working with program management tools."
"The Broadcom Clarity PPM dashboard needs improvement , because it's too slow. The look and feel of the platform, including its UX, also need some enhancement."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM should improve how the reports are being generated and contracts management."
"The solution could improve the way the workflow is developed. I think they could be more dynamic because they are in a way static. They're very powerful, but they don't have any interaction with end-users."
"The user interface (UI) needs to be improved. Right now, it's not the best."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM could improve by adding advanced reporting in the tool. There are a lot of out-of-the-box reports, but I would like to see more advanced reporting."
"One of the things that have always been a bit painful is the integration with reporting utilities. The current integration is with Jaspersoft, and there are a number of difficulties with that. If you're using out-of-the-box fields and everything, it is a bit slow and clunky. It has a drag-and-drop interface for the users. On the backend side, there is a report designer. They haven't given or allowed me any training on it yet. So, it has been a bit limited in its features. On one of the earlier report utilities, they had one called Actuate, which had VBA as its base programming language, and you could do quite dynamic things behind the scenes, whereas the Jaspersoft interface seems rather locked. So, you're limited in your options. Being a programmer, you like to have room to be able to invent and create rather than just being limited to a few selection boxes."
"When we import a really big project with a lot of tasks on it, we face some issues with dependencies. The links between tasks are not working very well. There is definitely room for improvement there. Microsoft Project, in my opinion, is the best option for such a use case."
"The price keeps going up, and to remain competitive, it needs to have a competitive edge. I would like to see more of the latest innovations, in terms of AI, ML, and all of the latest cutting-edge technologies, included in the platform."
"ServiceNow IT Business Management could improve by adding better artificial intelligence."
"It could be more user-friendly."
"A major improvement we would like to see is definitely around agile management."
"ServiceNow Strategic Portfolio Management could improve by having more Agile features. Other solutions, such as Rally have more."
"We track salaries or paychecks of the resources. They change from time to time, such as every six months or every year. If they can come up with a default or out-of-the-box feature to manage those multiple payable costs so that we can automatically calculate the project costs rolled up. That would be the coolest feature that we can expect from ServiceNow. We would like to have an automatic feature to manage the payable costs. We should be able to manage or maintain multiple pay costs so that while calculating the project roll-up costs for individual projects, the respective pay costs in a particular period are picked up automatically from the backend. Currently, we have to customize that. It is doable. We have done it but through customization."
"The price is too high."
