Pros
Good evolution of the tool with better and better user interface and features. Good interface with Google permits to us to use our Electronic Document Management System, SSO.
Scalable solution both in terms of users and functionalities. Great local support (France).
For the work that I conduct, these exports are a critical function. Being able to easily grab the information that I need from the system in a ready-to-use format is incredibly helpful.
Cons
Poor documentation to become Orchestra expert and support daily usage. Heavy weakness on standard reporting.
The poor performance with Internet Explorer/Edge.
No possiblity to do "batch" actions in lists. Timesheet workflow validation too restrictive.

Great app !

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

I particularly appreciate the integration of different features : project management, ressources management, budget, time tracking. We also implemented specific features apart from project development like non-conformity treatment, executive committee decisions management, customised reports

Cons

My company find it a bit expensive but it worth it. Needs a real training to get the full performance.

Orchestrating a plan

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's a versatile tool with lots of options for customization. I can see large or small organizations getting great use from the functions, with a careful assessment of your individual needs. Lots of ways to visualize progress on projects. It also has paths for simplifying the user experience for different members of the team. What I/we perhaps like most about the software is the ability to not only plan the project, but assign resources (allocate) at different increments (hours, % of FTE, days) - and to have that information push automatically to the individual owners of those allocations for task management and time reporting.

Cons

UI still needs some sharpening (and I've seen the teams improve on this since we signed on). Limited integrations with other commonly used software.

Works for basic project management or those new to project management

Reviewed 4 years ago

Planisware was not very responsive during implementation to completing tasks, following up on items requested or issues found. They either don't respond at all or don't respond quickly through their service desk requests for issues, questions, upgrade ideas, etc.

Pros

The ability to customize stages and gates is great as it allows for different types of projects in one organization or for different organizations to all have completely different set ups. The initial project tasks are easy enough to set up.

Cons

There are always way too many steps in each process. It may be easy enough to figure out the process but it seems like most could be completed with less clicks from the user.

Very good tool, easily and intuitive to use on main functions.

Reviewed 7 years ago

The main benefits are in the simplicity of navigation and use for the end-users: very good design and organization of the activity with fast access to the interesting information for the different level of the organization.

Pros

Orchestra is tool very appreciated by the users. Its design is clear and intuitive, which allows the different users to navigate inside the tool after 1 hour of training. Its use is also sufficiently simple for the occasional users (1 time per month or less) to re-find the menu without a new reading of the user guide. The access is simple and efficient from a location. We use it to manage the R&D...

Cons

There are no clear dark points about this software. Some specific attentions must be brought to the recording time (storage of the data) for specific functions. This time can increases with the number of manipulated elements or for specific functions. It is not a real issue, except in the case of long set of data recording.

Good PPM tool, cover all the functionnalities needed, good relationship

Reviewed 7 years ago

Transparency and consistency of our information. Consolidation of the data for analysis or understanding Be able to have a live status of our project and take decisions based on that. Manage the resources and distribute the work, valorize this one. End-to-end chain of information management

Pros

The fact to have a mix of settings and specific. It permits to be autonomous and start to have a first platform usable very fast. And after, with our specificity as a large company, be able to develop some interface with other tools. Interface is really user friendy. Good evolution of the tool with better and better user interface and features. Good interface with Google permits to us to use our Electronic Document Management System, SSO,... Cover all the needs with good features from the demand to Project management, Portfolio management, indicators,... Great relationship with NQI

Cons

It's inside their roadmap, but today, portfolio management can be better, Risk management also, Demand Management, on the Stakes part is not perfect We would like to be able to have little bit more global control on the projects, state, bulk modification as administrator or user. Some names are not consistent everywhere inside the tool and need to be align But I know, link to their roadmap, all this work in on going
