Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The timekeeping features are great and very helpful.""Changepoint gives us a view of the project status and needs very clearly, which are things that we used to miss with MS Project and Excel.""I like the reporting engine, IBM Cognos, especially the analytics. That's a good tool. It's quite strong on the ideation and capacity-planning side, which is a huge plus."

More Changepoint Daptiv Pros →

"The solution's ease of use is its most valuable aspect.""The usability is excellent.""The solution, overall, is excellent for project planning.""The scheduling and the customization are very powerful.""I like the way you can build the schedule by the Don't Start Before or Don't Start After values. You can use it to build your schedule based on how you change your dates. This is how it actually builds the schedule.""The stability of the 2019 version is quite good.""The solution is scalable and easy to expand.""Microsoft Project Server helps organizations in collaboration."

Cons
"I find the solution has an excessive amount of features. Many aren't even kept current. Some aren't useful at all. There's an overall lack of coherence within the solution. It can make the execution difficult. Many features can easily be eliminated and it would help streamline the solution. They should get rid of 80% of the features and then really focus on the leftover 20% to make it a really great product.""It would also be nice to see some improvements on the IBM Cognos Analytics. There's still work to be done on the analytics side of things, like your condition formality.""This solution needs more standard connectors to other solutions."

More Changepoint Daptiv Cons →

"The check-in, check-out feature makes Microsoft Project Server pretty slow or cumbersome to use.""The reporting aspects can be improved, which is one of the reasons why I'm using Qlik Sense. In the older on-prem versions, reporting was lackluster, to say the least. Project Online has a better handle on that. However, we will still be using Qlik Sense. We're also looking at an add-on app from a company called OnePlan that adds some additional functionality where Microsoft is not as clean in its approach for things such as portfolio management and some of the trends analysis.""This solution could improve by adding integration with Primavera schedules to allow the reading and management of them.""The solution could have more compact dashboards, such as one finds with Planview.""The deployment aspect of the product is a bit tedious.""It should be more agile and more flexible when it comes to customization.""Collaboration within the tool is lacking when you compare it to online or cloud-based tools.""It needs to be more collaborative from inside the application. It only does project scheduling for me. It would be good if it could do other things and be more collaborative, such as sharing tasks for users. It is not really incorporated into MS Office, so you can't copy-paste stuff. It is on its own, doing its own thing. It is only used for scheduling, and it doesn't work well with anything else."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing is pretty complex. Each kind of user is a different price. It's approximately $300 per year. They charge additional fees for technical support and other additional services."
  • "It's a yearly license, but it's not an open license. It's based on users and their roles. So your administrator is priced differently from your timesheet user."

  • "It is on the expensive side."
  • "There is a licensing cost."
  • "There is an annual license required for this solution."
  • "I cannot comment on the price as I was not responsible for purchasing the solution."
  • "I'm not quite sure about the licensing costs. We're probably paying somewhere in the neighborhood of about 80,000 to 90,000 a year for our current on-prem because we handle our own licensing. As far as Project Online is concerned, we're still trying to get a good handle on that. It looks like it is going to be in a neighborhood of about 120,000 to 150,000 a year, but we're getting a lot more capability out of it."
  • "The price of the Microsoft Project Server could improve, it is expensive here in Africa. When comparing Microsoft Project Server to Oracle Primavera for us, Microsoft Project Server is quite cost-effective."
