Daptiv PPM Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Daptiv PPM's features:

Curtis Wampler

Daptiv Is A Solid PPM Tool

2019-12-06

Tracking progress of IT Projects for Engineering/ Construction project.

Pros

The Administrative and User configuration capabilities facilitate Daptiv's support of our processes rather than the tool forcing a change in our execution methodology User impersonation is invaluable in trouble shooting and monitoring adoption by quickly identifying what any user is experiencing

Cons

Very little Program Management capabilities with respect to the update of a Program based on changes in child Projects Tasks should behave more like MS Project

One Susyem to Manage Projects

2019-12-05

We now have one system for managing projects vs. having to access multiple platforms.

Pros

1) we now have one system for all our project management tasks, tracking tasks and milestones, document repository, timekeeping, reporting. 2) System is reliable and easy to use. 3) Resource Capacity Planning and Allocation are easy to see in one view

Cons

This is a work in progress but there is some potential impact on milestones and project tasks that have been set up and that will need to be modified.

A Flexible complete solutions for your PPM requirements.

2019-10-15

It was a very useful solution to track projects, user testing, deliverable s management and so on.

Pros

You can add configuration for your own BUT YOU CAN NOT add code or customization (you can though on reports), and thats very good because it will set a way to use best practices instead of rebuilding the wheel.

Cons

Integration.You can integrate with other tools using Daptiv Connect, but there is no public API.

Daptiv PPM Tool

2019-10-16

Very effective from a project management perspective.

Pros

The tool is very flexible and easy to configure.

Cons

It may be too flexible, in the past we "jumped" into adding fields or apps before flushing out all the details. This caused some fields that are no longer used.

Bang for your buck

2019-12-10

The ability to customize and configure data output through the use of custom fields and views, dynamic apps, and reporting provides holistic visibility to crucial performance data that can be as simple as a snapshot or as complex and detailed as an executive dashboard report.

Pros

It allows you to manage a multitude of simple or complex projects and programs through a single user interface making tracking, analysis, forecasting, and planning a breeze.

Cons

The downside of Daptiv is the frequency that support cases need to be submitted due to unexpected errors or known issues with the software that are yet to be resolved. Generally, you have to find a workaround until the issue is resolved. The software is not cheap and although most support cases are resolved fairly quickly (within a day or two) reoccurring or unresolved issues make the price much harder to swallow.

Pros

Relative to other project management products I've used Daptiv is more intuitive and user-friendly. Their task managment section has many of the features of MS Project.

Creating portfolio management reports to meet management's specifications can be challenging.

We only utilize the app for project management at this time, but I believe that we could grow with the platform and add more services as necessary.

Pros

I really appreciate the ability to oversee multiple resources and project plans all within one easy to use system.

Cons

I wish that it would integrate with MS Teams - or had better collaboration capabilities.

Plenty of features, but with a learning curve

2019-12-17

Other software only make a SUM ALL BENEFITS feature which is un-realistic and can dangerously bias decision making.

Pros

- It is built with foundations related to standard concepts of project management (PMI) tasks, profile, change management, issues, risks, capacity management, - Allows customization in almost all parts of the system - Has standard reports for analyze all parts of project - Cognos reporting is really powerful - User can request functionalities in an open board, everyone can see, vote and request

Cons

- Cognos reporting has a steep learning curve if you don't know SQL - Recognition of geography of projects is not standard / native (if you need reports based on that concept) - Portfolio management although powerful still needs ease of use (expect a big upgrade on this on 2020) - It is licenced through user based and not seat based

PPM Software that grows with your organisation

2019-12-05

Visibility of project portfolios across a large organisation are now possible, in both capital and non-capital investments.

Pros

Ease of configuration and reporting - we started from a fairly low position of maturity around project, programme & portfolio management, so needed to tailor a low complexity system initially to meet the needs of our users and manage change and adoption, then over several years we have been able to build new functionality, registers and reports in-house, and introduce this to users when they were ready.

Cons

While there is work underway to improve agile functionality, there is still a gap between Daptiv task boards and some of the other agile planning tools on the market.
