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.

I like that it keeps all my projects together in one spot. I like that I can assign and delegate task right from it.

Likes Least

I don't like that sometimes I miss deadlines because I did not receive a notification for a task. Sometimes I forget to include people by putting the @ sign.

Recommendations

I would just play around with the product. See what features work best for you.

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.

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.

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

This is easily one of the best systems out there for recording individual users hourly time spent on projects and tasks. The ease with which you can record your time, assign that time, set estimates against each task and monitor an overall projects progress are incredibly useful.

Cons

For large projects with a huge number of seperate tasks and sub-tasks, it can look quite messy when viewing the project list. There is also a widget display which shows tasks split into blocks that be dragged around for easy ordering, whilst useful the viewing of it again is not the most appealing.

Provide a nice clean interface to manage projects remotely and allowed good sharing between teams across different sites.

Pros

I have tried a number of online PM tools and Liquid planner was one of the more polished options out there- provided some great functionality and the learning curve for its use never felt to steep.

Cons

Jump from small to medium number of users in the price is a little steep for the SME business- could do with a pricing structure in between

When using liquidplanner you can always tell how much work each team member has on his or her plate and when their projects will finish. The dashboards also make for very useful tools for internal and external use.

Pros

For companies with concurrent projects that need to predict finish times while having a fairly automated approach to resource management, LiquidPlanner is for you. It's especially useful if you need to create dashboards where internal or external stakeholders can see key information as updated by users.

Cons

It's very expensive for what it does, overpriced in my opinion. They've come out with a slightly lower tier but it's still not very accommodating. They definitely have a premium product but to me, it doesn't match up with similarly advanced tools.

cheaper option than Microsoft Project, cloud-based with very small amount of time needed to set up.

Pros

simplicity of use, literally zero learning curve, tons of features and flexible billing plans. The email to task feature saves everybody tons of time and allows tracking of email chains linked to an item on the project plan. Reporting is very good as well and allows to see Gannt charts with tons of flexibility. Great product overall

Cons

The fact that the price per user does not go any lower as you add more users. No on premises availability either.

Full PM tool, time tracking, billing.

Pros

We've been using Liquid Planner for the last 5 years now and I can say that we are now managing 100% of our projects with it.

Building a platform like Potion is a lot of work in product design, marketing, development and customer support but Liquid Planner has been a huge help when it comes to managing our projects.

Whether it's dealing with our internal or customer projects, Liquid Planner (my guys call it LP) has been a huge help. We're using only part of the tools provided by LP, such as packages, tasks, attributions, deadlines, time tracking, resource planning and scheduling, but it's already bringing a huge providing us with both flexibility and structure.

The help resources are really thorough also and help us get the information we need to use it in an even better way.

Finally, and I think it's certainly one of the biggest strength of Liquid Planner, its support team is tremendous. All of our requests are always answered with concise and clear replies that push us forward.

Cons

As any PM tool, there is a learning curve and you need to get the team using it in the good way. Thankfully, the help resources are great.

I couldn't do my work every day without Liquid Planner. I am constantly referencing it and using it throughout the day.

Pros

I like the way we can use this as a project management, time tracking, and a scheduling platform. So many other tools I've used only address one of these vital areas.

The timers on each task are one of my favorite features of Liquid Planner. It makes it so easy to track time and see how accurate estimates really are on a given task or set of tasks. You can easily view progress, see overruns and areas of concern (there's a red fire icon), and put as many details in the actual task as you need. You can link tasks together, create dependencies, and perform other actions to get a realistic view of a project.

Cons

Sometimes it is difficult to set up scheduling the way our company needs it to be represented. However Liquid Planner always seems to be putting out new features and their support team is very helpful in trying to help their clients find solutions.

I use it daily to see an accurate picture of what's on my plate and what's coming. Best of all, if a client asks, "Can you do x task by x date?", all I have to do is input this in LiquidPlanner and I can give a quick, confident answer.

Pros

The ability to accurately predict my workload and timelines in a completely fluid way and how quickly I can move, add, and remove tasks and projects.

Cons

Support is not offered to team/individuals like myself. Although I haven't really needed it, this is my only hesitation in recommended the tool to others who are small companies like me.

Accurate project completion dates.

Pros

We develop software. The resource planning features are awesome... date prediction is best I have seen. Previously, we had to guess at completion dates, and always got them wrong. After calculating the effort level of a new project, we double the estimated time using a "Strategic Float" task to account for unexpected requirements. That is helping us accurately predict the finish date.

Cons

The ticket management and task workflow options are limited. The interface is focused on dates and people, while ticket details and documentation are hard to find and use. The code workflow config options are not as flexible either, but we are making it work.

Liquid Planner is offering our business both a more consolidated approach to project management, as well as some features and functionality we didn't have before. Overall, I think it is helping our productivity.

Pros

It does a lot of things well. It offers a lot of advanced scheduling functionality for project managers. The Projects tab is incredibly powerful. Time tracking works well. Tagging people in comments is a useful feature.

Cons

Liquid Planner's interface is kind of slow for us (we have a lot of projects). The Home and My Work tabs aren't very useful to me--they never seem to show me the right subset of tasks, which is possibly due to the way we're organizing projects and tasks, which causes most people to use the Projects tab, which is powerful, but advanced and cluttered. API integrations work well enough, but the Zapier integration, in particular, is lacking much useful functionality in my opinion. For example, what if someone wanted to send a Slack notification to a particular person every time a task was assigned to them? Currently, either not possible or at least much more difficult than it could be.

The experience I have had with LiquidPlanner has been unparalleled compared to every other major Portfolio & Project Management (PPM) tool on the market. LiquidPlanner offers my organization a truly out-of-the-box scalable solution that is highly adaptive and intuitive to the way my organization's PMO is developed and to the way we manage projects across our highly diverse lines of business. LiquidPlanner is our one-stop-shop for everything project related as well as every other administrative or sales related task across our enterprise. Whether it is storing Project Artifacts, costing and budgeting projects or internal development cycles, identifying risk or periods of time where a staff augmentation would be necessary or just to have status updates via comments, LiquidPlanner covers all bases. My background is both from a PMBOK-aligned infrastructure Project Manager and a Scrum Coach for an applications development shop - and LiquidPlanner successfully caters to those methodologies without having to "fake the funk" or bend our processes to fit in the tool. The success of our PMO and of all of our projects is in no small part thanks to LiquidPlanner.

Pros

Methodology-agnostic and high scalability

Cons

Lacks the ability to assign dependencies in imported projects, will not export certain project hierarchy cleanly and lacks a way to interface with QuickBooks Online
