What is Clarizen?

Clarizen was developed to give organizations an easier way to manage initiatives, work, and projects. The work collaboration and project management solution automatically prioritizes budgets, resources, projects, portfolios, and tasks, and ensures that critical information and resources are always handled appropriately.

Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach to project management, Clarizen has developed a system with tailored solutions designed for users with exacting needs. For example, teams that work primarily through email can set up Clarizen to update tasks sent via email. Individual conversations are attached to projects and tasks, giving collaborators a straightforward way to stay updated on the status of all their ongoing initiatives. In addition to managing their projects through email or Clarizen’s web-based platform, users can also work on projects with their smartphones and tablet devices.

Document Management

Clarizen's online project management software facilitates team collaboration and project execution, ensuring data is always up-to-date and aligned with business objectives.

No complex software or hardware installations are required due to Clarizen's software-as-a-service (SaaS) structure, resulting in immediate business impact as teams and projects get up and running instantly.

Clarizen's intuitive user interface and innovative e-mail integration capabilities make sure that users adopt the software without problems and keep everyone on track with up-to-date project data.

Clarizen’s Work Management solution is a simple to use platform encompassing an employee’s full workload, ensuring all tasks are aligned with the overall business objectives.
- Work and project details are managed and maintained in one centralized, online location reflecting the true status and driving the players in real time.
- Status and related data is securely shared based on each user’s role and permissions.
- All aspects of work that project management software generally maintain in separate applications such as budgets, time, resource and issue tracking are now unified into one platform empowering all
users to work smarter and more efficiently.

Clarizen project management software provides project plan templates to create an efficient project management environment to use on projects of different scales and sizes. A template provides the basic framework of a project that was previously used in the system or from a project that was imported from MS-Project. Project plan templates allow project managers to get up and running quickly capitalizing on Clarizen’s project planning advantages.

In Clarizen, you start creating a project from a project plan template, which utilize your organization’s existing project knowledge-base and assist you in getting up and running quickly.

Clarizen's collaborative planning allows you to dramatically accelerate the speed of your planning phase, while ensuring that the overall plan is created by the most skilled and accountable staff.

With Clarizen's Salesforce Integration, Salesforce users can create and view the progress of both Projects and Issues directly from Salesforce while staying connected with the Clarizen Today window.

From within Salesforce, users can access work items and view their status without needing to login to Clarizen. Clicking on the Projects opens it directly within Clarizen.

For example, a salesperson may get a feature request from a customer. Without needing to login, that salesperson can submit a feature request within Clarizen or link an existing project to a Salesforce Account, Opportunity, Case or Campaign. When progress is made on that feature request, the sales person will be able to see that directly from within Salesforce.

In addition, existing Clarizen projects can be linked directly with Salesforce Accounts, Opportunities or Campaigns. By linking a Salesforce account with a Clarizen project, you can now keep your customers up to date with the status of their requests. You can also access more detailed information by clicking on the view in Clarizen button to see the full project roadmap or mapping Clarizen custom fields directly into Salesforce.

Who is Clarizen For?

Clarizen can be used by project managers, IT departments, project management offices, professional services groups, agile development teams, and marketing teams. The company’s most well-known customers include Marketo, Zendesk, Zazzle, Urban Outfitters, Kaiser Permanente, HP, FedEx,Shutterfly, and PG&E, among many others.

Clarizen Main Features

Creating Projects

Use Clarizen’s navigation panel to get one-click access to all of your modules, beginning with your list of active projects. To create a new project, use one of Clarizen’s pre-defined templates. Pre-defined templates have workflows built in. Make adjustments to Clarizen’s templates to fit your needs, or disregard the platform’s pre-defined templates altogether by creating your own.

You can create a project in Microsoft Excel or Projects and upload it to Clarizen, or create projects directly from email messages. You can also create your own forms to capture new project requests, and route those requests for scoring or approvals.

Project Planning

Engaging in Social Workspaces

Clarizen’s social platform connects unstructured communication to structured work. Host online discussions and share files with ad-hoc groups, and create new work items directly from the discussions that take place within Clarizen’s interface.

Each of your projects will have a “workspace.” This is where you’ll go to assign tasks, collaborate on documents, and update your current status in the context of a discussion or a work item. In addition to working with colleagues, you can also invite customers, clients, and third-party contracts to participate in your workspaces.

Social Engagement

Managing Resources

Instantly see which resources are available to work on a project by opening the resource load view. The resource load view lets you manage the workloads of individuals and groups. Workloads can be managed by originally planned work or remaining effort, load, and real-time availability. They can also be filtered by project scope and displayed by hour or unit.

Once you’ve gotten a look at which resources are available to work on your next project, you’ll want to assign tasks to the people with the best skillsets. To assign and re-assign team members to your projects, use Clarizen’s drag-and-drop interface. You can balance workloads and plan resources more effectively using these tools.

Resource Management

Tracking Tasks

As team members work toward accomplishing specific tasks, Clarizen tracks their progress automatically and updates the status within the cloud-based platform. Every person who is associated with a project can see how that project is progressing by logging into Clarizen and reviewing the current status of all associated tasks.

Because Clarizen integrates with iCal, among many other business applications, entire teams can quickly access the task lists they’re associated with. This ensures that everyone remains on the same page for the duration of every project. Clarizen offers time tracking tools that can be linked to specific tasks, as well.

All in one place

Jeff Driscoll5th of February 08:10

Clarizen brings all of our previously disparate levers and knobs into one package. Since deploying, they have constantly upgraded and innovated to allow for more capability and smoother operation. The API has proven strong for us, and the customization means we can use it exactly how we like. Mobile and Outlook integration have proven valuable as well. We can present our users with multiple ways to use the technology so that they can pick the method they feel most comfortable with. My remark to our VP: "We're going to put success right out in front of you, where you can grab it." Our support has been excellent. Multiple people from Clarizen have supported us not only through the transition and rollout, but well beyond. When I need support, I get it, fast.

Three way integration with Intacct and Salesforce works great

Scott27th of March, 2013 16:50

With Clarizen's integration to Salesforce anyone with appropriate access can check the status of a project without having to pick up the phone and call our delivery team - visibility into project status is right there in Salesforce. If you happen to use Intacct Cloud Financials you will be even more pleased as time and expenses can flow from Clarizen to the accounting system. This three way integration has been a huge win for our company
