LiquidPlanner Software


 

LiquidPlanner is a cloud-based project management platform. This solution includes integrated applications for project portfolio management, document management, project collaboration, resource management, time tracking, budgeting and more.

LiquidPlanner's scheduling engine can generate priority-based schedules, taking into account the priority and estimated time assigned to each task. As users log time or re-estimate their time, LiquidPlanner shows the most up-to-date schedules. Best and worst case estimates give a realistic look at what can be accomplished and when, while comprehensive planning at the team and portfolio-level helps administrators manage resources.

Since this system is cloud-based, users can collaborate and interact with their projects, tasks and teams, from virtually anywhere. Native apps for iOS and Android devices allows users to access many of the features available in the system so they can view projects, assign tasks, update progress, and collaborate with team members anywhere they have Internet access.

Pros

It has the basic needs to keep our team organized and once you learn how to add/delete projects, it can be user friendly.

Cons

Not everyone thinks the same in terms of naming conventions. It would be nice to also include a number system to assign projects. Also, the calendar is never accurate in terms of what team members need to be doing.

LiquidPlanner - expensive, but with PM software, you get what you pay for.

Value for Money

Over the course of my career I have used a lot of PM software. I have used Project, Jira, Basecamp, Asana, and Trello in addition to LiquidPlanner. Out of all of them, LiquidPlanner is my PM software of choice.

Pros

LiquidPlanner is a powerful project management tool. It can be used to track tasks, projects, employee capacity, schedules, deliverables, and hours. I find that the most important and helpful feature of LiquidPlanner is its ability to track employee capacity and move estimated completion dates back if someone is overloaded. This is crucial if you are working in an environment with multiple projects going on at the same time who are obliged to share certain resources (2D artists, programmers, video editors, etc.)

Cons

At most I can think of only two cons related to LiquidPlanner
1. Setting up a project in LiquidPlanner is definitely time-consuming. Project managers will need to dedicate several hours to transforming their WBS information to something that works in LP. However, this is just a drain on PMs and not project team members.
2. In some environments it can be difficult to get employees to "buy-in" to LiquidPlanner and consistently update their hours and tasks. It's a behavior change and culture shift that must be encouraged and re-enforced regularly.

I wish there was the ability to do Required Fields and had a better "notification" Feed/Center. Also wish there was better way to do "mapping" with custom field entries (when you delete one, it's gone, you can't map it easily to another one w/o filtering and doing them manually.)

Recommendations

Easy to roll-out simply and then gradually add complexity.

There is very quick customer support and frequent webinars to explain new products. It's easy to learn and has almost all of the functionality we have needed.

It's expensive for a team of our size (<10 people). Analytics could be a little more user-friendly, especially creating reports to base your billings on.

Recommendations

Talk to LP and watch their videos before you decide. There is also usually a free trial.

LiquidPlanner provides robust software that you can easily utilize to help your organization scale. As you grow, it grows with you and can be easily customized. It is well organized, and they provide great self guided tools, tutorials, and means to jump right in with the software.

Likes Least

The only down side I can think of is it seems to be getting more complex with each release. Hope that they don't lose the core simplicity and clean interface over time

Recommendations

I would say to do a lot of searching and also have a clear idea going in to the process of what precisely you are trying to achieve- at the end of the day, software is a tool that assists. You have to be clear on your organization's workflow, goals and what pain points you are trying to solve for ultimately.

Excellent project management software backed with qualified/helpful staff!

Likes Least

Would like the ability to schedule daily work limits to smaller increments. Current lower limit of work a person can do a day per task is 30 minutes. Would like this to go as low as 15 minutes.

Recommendations

There is a lot of competition in cloud-based project management software with a large spectrum of services and capabilities. Ensure you know your operational requirements very well so you do not buy a more expensive service than you truly require.

Pros

You don't have to spend a lot of time on administration unless you want to. Everything is included, you don't need to add plugins for the tool to be well-functioning (ref. Jira and Atlassian Marketplace). Being able to provide estimates in a range format (low-high) is a nice touch.

Cons

The lack of built-in integrations with common software providers. This is the main reason we left LiquidPlanner for Jira.

Just the planning and overview for everybody.

Pros

Well designed, good overview, and nice to have different ways of showing the tasks and progress .

Cons

Some overviews have grown beyond usefulness. Like the task overview, which contains 7 subsections (People, Planning, Checklist, Comments, Notes, Documents, Links) . On a standard screen you always have to scroll way down to see it all, so I usually miss any comments or items on the checklist.

I think it's a great program, when you get used to using it. Although, I prefer to be more personable with the people working under me.

Pros

I like the ability to assign work , and track time my workers are taking on projects. I feel it's very easy to enter the time spent on projects.

Cons

For some it isn't easy to navigate, and it takes away from being more personable with your co- workers.

Integrated scheduling of multiple projects, teams and resources. LP does our day to day tracking and provides valuable ETC's

Pros

LP is a great way to integrated multiple projects into one dataset and be able to see the immediate impact of changes to a single project on the organizations project priorities as a whole.

Cons

There is no 'sandbox' type feature where you can rough out ideas and look at the potential impacts before committing. Liquid Planner is really a forward facing tool and it is not easy/intuitive to do a project retrospective on how the final outcome matched with the initial estimates.

Frustrating to fined out how much work is remains.

We are a engineering / manufacturing company there is no option on your list for us.

Pros

Essay to use if you have a simple setup. Not really doing what we want.

Cons

Difficult to get and indication of hours left on a task if you use casual labor. We want to book hours worked to individual people. We want to allocate hour to a task and not a person that way it will be easy to move people around.

I have used LiquidPlanner for 1 year and it has definitely helped my team and I with our project management.

Pros

Find Liquid Planner extremely easy to use. Within just a few hours of owning Liquid Planner I had already been able to familiarise myself with it's intuitive and well presented interface. The software is also easy to maintain with regular automatic updates.

Cons

Unfortunately Liquid Planner offers little to no customisation options when it comes to the look and feel of the platform.

LiquidPlanner is quite sophisticated, highly customizable, has drag and drop capabilities, lots of options for multiples projects and different teams. The project managers can change the tasks and priorities anytime and immediately takes into account if a team member works on more than one project. Also a neat feature is that you can visualize different scenarios for the same projects, and decide which one works best.

Cons

It has so many options you might get lost. Pricing is targeting mid-size to large companies. Some features are dependable on internet like the time tracking and very limited integrations. Best to try the 14 days free trial first.
