Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It allows you to be granular, and send each step.""It's probably one of the most user-friendly platforms I've ever used.""Since I'm using it for a variety of purposes, not just project management, I can customize boards and workspaces based on the needs of that particular workflow.""The reminder function and tagging function work really well.""The ability to track dates and times we need cases to be completed has been of great use to my firm.""The solution just makes it so much easier to keep track of where things are.""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.""Time tracking has been a godsend."

Cons
"We would like to have more open boards at one time and more CRM functionalities.""The solution has dashboards, however, you have a limited amount. You may only get ten when you need closer to 30. We often need to create many boards. For example, we might need one board per customer. If we have more than ten customers, we run out of boards available. I'm not sure if you can pay more in order to get more or if it's just a design limitation. It's unclear. In any case, they should be more generous.""As far as I know, when I make a new entry on a Board, and I'm putting in the first piece of information, you can't just hit return or tab to the next element.""We need to have conversations within the platform.""If Monday.com could increase the refresh rate of the site, that would make things a little better.""This isn't a platform where you scrimp on the training and send one person to bring back knowledge. Monday is different things to different people, and context matters.""If you want to drag a task or rearrange them, it's quite tricky, especially on the app.""A more personalized dashboard displaying each account's unfinished assignments would be helpful."

More monday.com Cons →

"The cost could be lower.""The check-in, check-out feature makes Microsoft Project Server pretty slow or cumbersome to use.""This solution could improve by adding integration with Primavera schedules to allow the reading and management of them.""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.""Collaboration within the tool is lacking when you compare it to online or cloud-based tools.""The deployment aspect of the product is a bit tedious.""There need to be more tutorials available to users.""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."

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."

  • "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."
  • "Microsoft Project Server is more expensive than other solutions on the market. We purchase the license annually."

    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.”
