Three way integration with Intacct and Salesforce works great
Review by Scott (27th of March)
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
Pros: good support. UI is very intuitive and easy to use the first iteration of the Salesforce plugin was so-so, the newest version is years ahead
Reporting is not flexible enough
Review by Nick Taylor (1st of March)
Decent product overall and cheaper price, but you sacrifice a lot of functionality when compared to other offerings in the space.
Pros: More functionality that tools like Basecamp, Asana, etc. Web-based Easy Setup
Cons: Support is not very helpful. Very little guidance in best practices with their software. Reporting is not nearly as flexible as other tools I've used in the past (AtTask).
Clarizen 5.4 review
Review by Fr. Van Hecke (25th of May, 2012)
Clarizen brings peace of mind in a fast paced environment - we create multimedia animations - and makes sure everyone can focus on their key competences. Since we use Clarizen, we feel we have more control over our business, margins, reporting and overall customer success. Using Clarizen and customizing it is straightforward, for project managers using common tools (MS Project), Clarizen is a very easy to understand and use solution. The most important thing that impressed me is the proximity of the Clarizen team. They are quick with to the point answers, very accessible and open to listen to your challenges.
Pros: Clarizen gives you all ins and outs of project management and goes way beyond. If you go the extra mile and link it to SalesForce.com, you get so much more customer insight - relevant data is shared amongst your entire company to every department.
Cons: Getting more reports out of Clarizen is a bit of a struggle if you want to step beyond the standard offering. It requires some tinckering with an Excel plugin, which does the job - frankly. That is a point of improvement Clarizen is very aware of.
Project Visibility inside SFDC
Review by Jim (3rd of February, 2012)
I have just completed our Clarizen and SFDC integration a few weeks ago. We are very satified with the results! We have 100s of active projects - these dashboards allows our Services Organization to better manage our business. The Clarizen-SFDC integration allows anyone from our Sales, Customer success, or our Support teams to see up to date project data. If you're familiar with Microsoft Project you can easily find your way around this app in minutes. Definitely recommend
Pros: I especially like their design of allowing Clarizen Projects to be linked to Opportunities, Accounts, and/or Campaigns.
Cons: Pricing a bit high
Finally a real project management app for Salesforce
Review by Paul (3rd of February, 2012)
great to see Salesforce.com integration with Clarizen. We have used Clarizen for years and recommend it to all our clients. We are always asked for solutions that integrate with Salesforce.com and now we have a solution we can refer with confidence.
Pros: provide SFDC Dashboards to your Executive team using Clarizen project data
Clarizen - Work and Project Management
Review by PM60 (28th of December, 2011)
The best project management solution for team work! Clarizen's cloud based SaaS software is easy to use, without needing any technical support. It is the best choice for Project Managers who run multiple projects and/or have a team of people working from different locations. Real time visibility means everyone can see exactly what the team is working on, ensuring that time and resources are not wasted. Managers get a full picture of the project, while team members only see what they need to know. Communication is easy with built in email, chat and notes. Everyone's tasks are clearly defined and deadlines are visible, via the Dashboard. A project can be planned, with a time line and milestones, so it is easy to see where you are holding, and which tasks have been assigned to each team member. In general, Clarizen's project management program can help you become more efficient by ensuring that all team members have the same information, and time and money are not being wasted.
Pros: Progress reports and reviews with real time data. Easy collaboration and communication between team members. Great online support team and webinars. Easy to track budget, time and resources from the same home page.
Cons: Clarizen's features mean that if you have a small, simple project that only needs a team of 2 or 3, Clarizen is probably too powerful.
I would highly recommend it to other PMs
Review by Projectmanager60 (17th of October, 2011)
I'm using Clarizen to plan and execute my projects. I have a small project management business and a small team, but we really appreciate how easy it is to use the Clarizen software and how it helps us use our time and manage our resources so effectively. I would highly recommend that other PMs try the free trial.
Pros: Easy to use
Clarizen works the way teams want to work today
Review by Keean (7th of October, 2011)
Clarizen is one of the few applications designed specifically for a SaaS delivery model. The SaaS architecture facilitates consistently fast response times, requires little IT intervention, and ensures users always have the latest functionality. It has a clean, intuitive graphic interface and common sense approach to project management that works for experienced PMs as well as the rest of their organizations
Pros: Managers can see what their teams are working on, and have a clear view of a project from minute to minute
Cons: I believe Clarizen can continue to invest in third-party integrations (and the company indicates this is happening) that will make it even more relevant as an enterprise-level solution.
Hands on Clarizen Project Management tool
Review by Miguel de Olarte (3rd of May, 2011)
After using clarizen for about 5 months, is has clearly helped us to have a mothe deep follow up in the planning and execution of our projects. It presents a small difference as a desktop tool as MS Project or Merlin for Mac. However it covers most of the needs to monitor a project.
Pros: Its road map view is a great way to see the big picture, the intarface is easy and intuitive for a project manager. And as a web tool all changes are inmediately shown to all users.
Cons: The philosophy of use is a little different as a desktop tool, and it takes a little time to get use to it. If the internet conectios is aslow is very paintful to work with the tool.
Clarizen Project Management Application
Review by Beth (4th of March, 2011)
After reviewing many PM applications, we chose Clarizen based upon its features and cost. Almost two year later, we are still happy with the application and its continual upgrades.
Pros: Ease of use for both administrators, clients and individual users Accessibility of information about new features - i.e. webinars, Clarizen staff, website tutorials Easy update features to keep everyone involved with the project up-to-date
Cons: Wish there was a feature that would accrue paid time off
Review by Software Project Management
Review by Pawel Brodzinski (18th of January, 2010)
The best web-based project management software I worked with so far.
Pros: Scheduling, Task Management, MS Project Import, External Users, GUI Design, Usability Features, Support
Cons: Price: The first and the most important issue is Clarizen pricing. It is also a second and third most important issue respectively. Clarizen is expensive. It’s very expensive. History, Risk Management, Item Workflow
