Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like that I can change the task and include different resources related to the task.""It is very stable. I haven't had any kind of issues with it. It is also very scalable.""Technical support has been very helpful.""The integration between SharePoint and Power BI has been great.""It is easy to use and pretty intuitive. User interfaces have stayed the same for the most part for the last 20 years. So, there is a familiarity.""It served the purpose. It was pretty user-friendly.""The pricing is pretty good on the enterprise agreement we have.""The solution is very complete. It makes it a great option for project managers and they can use it extensively in almost any organizational setup."

"The solution is great for notification on changes and updates and Excel exporting and we can easily build and customize new boards.""It has allowed our small team of five to deliver more projects on time and with quality as well as instill trust with clients that their projects do not fall through the cracks.""It's probably one of the most user-friendly platforms I've ever used.""Before signing on with Monday, we had no idea what the total value of our book of business was, and keeping track of renewing policies was very difficult.""The board function allows you to create a digitized to-do list.""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.""The global search is the solution's most valuable aspect.""The templates helped me to kick off process solutions for our team."

Cons
"I am not that close to it anymore, but I know that there were some cut and paste issues when we were trying to move one group of roles to another, and they used to muck up the interdependencies between the tiers, rows, and other things.""Collaboration is an area that needs improvements.""I have no idea about the cost because it is a corporate decision.""We need more integration with Microsoft Teams and other collaboration tools.""If Project had a better mechanism to allow those who are not the project manager to see their own work tasks, that would be of help or of value to us.""Microsoft's solution isn't really a collaboration tool, however. If you need a collaboration tool, you can use Slack, which can be integrated with your JIRA.""I would like to see an entire baseline, like in JIRA.""There are a few bugs that can affect the stability. This is typical of most applications."

More Microsoft Project Cons →

"The pricing is a bit steep, and it's built on tiers rather than incremental users (not ideal for a small company that's adding people slowly).""BCC Outlook integrations could be better.""For others who have more varied assignments, some of which require collaboration with other team members, they might find Monday insufficient.""In my main table, I changed sometimes the timeline values mistakenly. That should be prevented via a smart warning or some sort of coloring.""The site could load a bit faster.""The calendar selection for dates is not the easiest to navigate.""We would like to connect with email solutions such as Outlook.""The product can be improved by adjusting some of the ways in which the "boards" work."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It gets expensive when having to add all of the plugins and everything that you need."
  • "It probably was $30 per license on a monthly basis. There is no additional fee."
  • "I do not remember the exact cost we paid but usually, they charge per user per month."
  • "Its price could be reduced a little."
  • "It was a three-year license deal that was reconciled on a quarterly basis. It is a reasonably priced product, and I consider that we got good value for money."
  • "Licensing costs vary depending on the user volume. The pricing is good, I'd rate it four out of five."
  • "You only need a Team's license in order to use Microsoft Project within Teams, which is very helpful."
  • More Microsoft Project 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."

    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.”
