Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Our team uses the platform for many different functions, and the ability to have multiple Kanban boards that are integrated into various other platforms our team uses has helped us become more efficient in our content creation strategies.""I especially like the dashboards where you can combine info from different boards into one.""All employees can access it so everyone is in the know of what jobs are coming in and what jobs are going out.""The customization ability of Monday is unmatched.""It has kept all our departments accountable and gives a quick birds-eye to see how projects are progressing.""The feature which I found most valuable is the "My Work" section.""The value is that monday.com provides us with an overall picture of how much work a teammate has.""I enjoy being able to switch between different views of a board, such as Gantt or Kanban, as this provides alternative ways of viewing tasks and managing workload."

More monday.com Pros →

"The solution, overall, is excellent for project planning.""The solution has easy integration with Excel.""The scheduling and the customization are very powerful.""Project schedule management is very good. Basically, it sits on SharePoint. So, every time we create a project, a new project site is created within that SharePoint environment, which is a very good document repository. It allows us to create issues and risks lists and additional functionality to keep track of what's going on with projects.""Microsoft Project Server helps organizations in collaboration.""Technical support is very responsive - particularly on critical tickets.""The technical support for Microsoft Project Server and the support is very good. Microsoft support is working very well.""The ability to look at the resource loading is most valuable."

More Microsoft Project Server Pros →

"There are two things in particular that I enjoy. The first is the portfolio planning section. Another advantage is that it is highly customizable.""The solution is performance-oriented and easily customized accordingly to many areas, such as performance KPI.""We have a variety of different modules, but it is mainly used for costs, risks, and resources."

More Planisware Pros →

Cons
"It would be so cool to have live chat with team members when needed instead of having three different apps for work-related tasks.""The only thing that I would change, and I'm not sure if this is part of the settings that need to be fixed by the user itself, not by the admin, is that sometimes it would be convenient to make your own categories, and it makes it difficult to constantly go and talk to my boss to get them.""It would be great to be able to pull an activity report.""It is a touch expensive, especially when just starting out.""Having more pre-defined formats and/or templates or having the ability to make public some formats/templates (not the information on them) would be useful.""The ability to implement a timetabling functionality would be really useful for an education provider.""Making adjustments to the My Work section that it includes deadlines for multiple columns on a board instead of just one would be very useful.""The speed of the loading process should be better."

More monday.com Cons →

"The solution could have more compact dashboards, such as one finds with Planview.""We think that calculations are not working correctly, and there is a need to enter data a couple of times in order to give the correct calculations.""Collaboration within the tool is lacking when you compare it to online or cloud-based tools.""We need to be able to compare milestones, calls, and other variables regarding the projects we are working on. I have to contract developers to make reports, which is where things get complicated. They need to develop personal and custom fields for us.""The user interface looks quite old and needs to be improved.""It should be more agile and more flexible when it comes to customization.""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.""The cost could be lower."

More Microsoft Project Server Cons →

"More integration is needed with other kinds of products for better collaboration.""They do not have anything that can assist customers with multi-year roadmap planning.""Its stability should be improved. Its stability is the main issue, but we sometimes also have issues with calculations."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I wasn't involved with the licensing, but I believe it's negotiable."
  • "The solution is quite inexpensive. For example, we pay $8,500 for 75 users. It's somewhere around $100 a user, approximately."
  • "The project manager would be responsible for any licensing fees. As an end-user, we just follow suit."
  • "Fees are paid monthly per user."
  • "The price is reasonable for the number of users we have."
  • "I am using its free version."
  • "We tell others it's about $2200 for a ten-person plan and it can be adjusted; it's easy to scale."

  • "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."
  • "It's not subscription-based, we purchased the on-premises version."
  • "There is a subscription model for different types of users for different types of roles."

    Reviews from Real Users

    monday.com stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its task status feature and its ability to integrate with external apps. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    Ben D., Front End Developer at a marketing services firm, writes of the product, “Their flagship feature, what used to be called the pulse, is great. Pulse offers great management. Being able to see everything at a glance and check task status, is wonderful. They use subtasks and the simple aspects of task management have been really helpful.”

    Another PeerSpot reviewer, the Head of Projects at Smart Media SA, notes, “The boards offer an amazing and clear view of my tasks, campaigns, and progress. Automations especially with Slack and Outlook help with keeping my team up-to-date always. Graphs and charts are valuable for reporting purposes and to track progress made. Workforms/surveys are valuable and a very cool added feature.”
