Pros

Ability to use for multiple solutions in addition to Agile Project Management. I've been in the business for over 30 years and Clarizen Customer Care in the best I've experienced in a very long time.

KJ

Kevin J.

The best aspect of this platform, for me, is the ease in which I can see each of my team member's project load. This enables me to better time manage all the resources available in my team.

CC

Christopher C.

All of the people we've dealt with are likable and eager to help...just not on our terms, which is the place they could improve the most.

JH

Jeff H.

Pros

As I already mentioned, it's super user friendly and it takes no time to work comfortable with it. I contact support service few times and received the feedback in less then 24 hours.

YL

Yuliya L.

Arena is a good tool for managing complex Bill of Materials and supplier/sourcing relationships. Sourcing info is easy to find, and it's easy to see where a specific component is used.

RR

Ryan R.

Once you understand how to use it the software can keep an excellent record of your product, parts, documents etc. that is easy to navigate.

BH

Brandon H.

Cons

Can be a pain in the ass to configure when the application need to so specific for your organization.

YB

Yari B.

The fact that there are so many features also has a downside.

MS

Maria S.

Our biggest struggle comes with the idea that a PSA should be a three legged stool (projects/task management, time tracking/resource management, and project financial management).

GS

Garret S.

Cons

Product revision control is a bit too manual (no auto-rev-up for parent items). Some GUI at the request level is confusing.

KS

Kay S.

Depending on whether a change has been rejected or withdrawn, it is sometimes impossible to make further edits to a revision until that change is "deleted", even though it had already been rejected.

BF

Brian F.

Updating information for lots of items is cumbersome and the import tool that is meant to speed this up lacks documentation making it frustrating to learn.
