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.

A great tool for any company with complex projects

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.

So easy to plan tasks

Pros

Adding tasks and organizing them are a breeze. It's easy to keep track of where I am on my projects.

Cons

I didn't really have any cons. It's probably not as full featured as some other software but it does what it was meant to do very well

Project management platform at its best

Pros

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.

Project Management is a daily part of our lives, so we need easy software to fit that lifestyle.

Pros

Managing projects is a breeze. There are Gantt charts for those projects that need timeline analysis and breakdowns, and of course, it's simpler for those projects that aren't as time-heavy. You can access the data anywhere from any device, and you can easily see when someone has made changes. Another great thing about this is it allows for contingencies.

Cons

It takes a little bit of getting used to. But once you have, it's cake.

Nice project management software

We tried out Liquid Planner over a busy summer when we have lots of projects on at the same time. It helped us to keep tabs on everyone including budgets.

Pros

It has lots of features that help to run multiple projects at the same time. It is also very easy to use. We love the ability to keep tabs on the budget too.

Cons

It is quite pricey when compared with some of the alternative options.

A complex software

I used this software in my actual job, but fortunately the company decided to change it

Pros

I really don't like this software, I always try to give an opportunity to new products but in this case I didn't see positive things on it. It's so far of Jira

Cons

It's a complex software. I think that it try to copy the Jira functionality, but it doesn't make it.

Lots of capabilities but hard to learn

We used this for project management. Our deployment could've been much better (on our end) but we opted not to spend the money to invest in a more custom setup because it was so hard to get comfortable with.

Pros

I liked the amount of functionalities available in the tool - it was clearly very powerful if leveraged effectively.

Cons

It was very hard to learn out of the box. A phone consult with LP to customize for our needs was costly.

I am a fan, though our use is just scratching the surface

Because of the lack of integrations, I have been looking for something to replace Liquid Planner with, and after seeing them, I could not stand to stop using Liquid Planner. I think that alone speaks volumes. I think you would be foolish to not look at their product. And there you have it.

Pros

As a web development agency, I can tell you the one feature that has prevented me from using another product, that is their task estimating feature. Why nobody else does this is beyond me (full disclosure: a lot of things are beyond me) :)

When setting up a task you can actually estimate the time it will take the same way real people estimate tasks, with a time range. Who in the world ever hits their single estimate time targets all the time? NOBODY. With Liquid Planner you enter a range, 3 - 6 hours, 1-2 hours, etc. THAT IS A LIFESAVER FOR US.

Another concept of theirs called "packages" is also brilliant. There you can take tasks and bundle them up into "folders" that make sense to you, so you can look at your projects

Cons

The thing that I dislike the most is there are not many integrations with third party time keepers for tasks and billing programs. Harvest would be an example, as would many others. They have their own time tracker, but to use it you ahve to have the app open. Lose internet, forget about it. Working in a car or on the train without internet? Forget about it.

Also, their mobile app is not really of much value.

A complete Project Management tool

Pros

It is a powerful project management tool to manage multiple projects by prioritizing and monitoring the progress time to time. Easy to assign tasks to people and collaborate. Since it also has bugs monitoring, all in one place project management tool.

Cons

The interface is so overwhelming and complex.

Good Tracking and Management Software

Pros

The chart of workloads and ability to see when team members are available is absolutely invaluable.

Cons

It's expensive and it takes a while to learn all of the subleties. Definitely not a plug and play.

Capable Software for Capable People

Pros

This software is extremely capable for your project management needs. It does a fantastic job of allowing your to run multiple projects with tasks, sub-tasks, and assign people to those tasks. It has been one of the most robust project management programs I have used.

Cons

This software is not very intuitive to learn. I had to spend quite a bit of time with the software to feel like I grasped the basics, and I still don't think that I had delved very deep into the program. I think it would take more time and possibly outside training to fully understand what the program can do.

It Get's the Job Done

Pros

This software helps my team visualize our projects in a clear and concise way. It's reliable and very easy to use on all aspects. It's very flexible and easy to make changes when needed, which happens more than I'd like to admit. It keeps our team on track when completing projects and sometimes even helps us get ahead of where we need to be.

Cons

As with any project management software there is a lot of time going into setup. I wish that there was a simpler way to do this so we didn't have to spend so much time working on the set up. Other than that, there really isn't much to complain about with this software. It does the job as advertised and has helped my team since we've started using it.

Cool but basic

Cool tool but with many defects, high price, lack of features like gantt and calendar, and difficult to understand.

Pros

What I liked the most is that the software allows the project team to organize and develop tasks, the comments options allow to give a status and that also give the opportunity to establish in a certain way communication with all the team.

Cons

To learn how to use it you need to be a pro in softwares, other way it is very difficult to understand how to obtain information to export it and create reports. The price is high compared to the features.

Great project manager software

Pros

We are an academic publisher. Our company has used LiquidPlanner for over 3 years to manage the progress of publishing a book from acquisition to publication and beyond. It is feature rich and would be of great use to those who need granular management of multiple projects with multiple team members. We did not need many of the advanced features but have still found the core application to be incredibly useful in our daily workflow. Gone are the days of inter-departmental memos and back and forth email threads.

Cons

The learning curve was a bit steep for our employees. To be fair, this was their first exposure to an online project management system. Once we were able to pare the numerous features down to the very basics, they were able to intuit how the system worked without being overwhelmed by the multitude of features that were not useful to our workflow.
