5 of the Best Project Portfolio Management Software

Rotten Tomatoes. CNET. Yelp. Consumer Reports. Investing in a product, whether it’s a movie ticket or a car, no longer requires intimate interactions between buyer and seller. Instead, it can be done online.

Relying on reviews has many advantages and disadvantages. The biggest problem is the sheer number of options. What cat toy should you buy? A cat toy A may have 4,900 five-star Amazon reviews but only 2,300 one-star reviews. Cat toy B, on the other hand, has 235 five star reviews and 10 one stars reviews. Why is there so much stress about cat toys?
One way reviews can be extremely helpful is when they are from verified buyers (NOT Spam) and are thorough like the Capterra reviews. Reviews are far more helpful than negative when it comes to major purchases. Based on Capterra’s reviews, I have compiled a list of the top project portfolio management software. These five software are the best and I would recommend them all.
5. LiquidPlanner

Overall: 5/5
Easy to Use: 4/5
Customer Service 4/5
Price: Starting at $29 per month per user
LiquidPlanner was a 2015 CODiE Award winner. This powerful project portfolio management software can calculate KPIs, offer best-case and worst case scenario planning tools, as well as give project managers a complete view of all projects and contexts, including employee workload, billing, and pricing reporting.
Gwen Bender, Product Manager at Vaisala, reviews Standout
We are a consulting company with two dozen people who manage more than 50 projects at once. LiquidPlanner allows us to do all this with one project manager.
LiquidPlanner has been a great help in prioritizing work and communicating among team members. Online collaboration allows team members to update their status without having to have a PM hover over them or change their schedules. The ability to attach notes and comments to projects facilitates handoffs and speeds up the review process at project’s end.
All of these cons are usually associated with our use. It would be nice to share status outside, but we haven’t set up Dashboards yet. It would be nice if individual schedules were prioritized more effectively, but that’s us and not them. This software, as with any project management software, requires that you commit to training and integrating it into your team from the beginning.
4. Microsoft Project

Overall: 4.5/5
Easy of use: 4.5/5
Customer Service: 4.5/5
Price: Prices start at $25 per user per monthly
MS Project is a standard in project management software and it would be shocking if it didn’t make this list. Microsoft Project is a solid choice for large companies due to its ability to create detailed Gantt charts and reporting features as well as Microsoft product integrations.
Standing out review by Nitin Takluja, Technical Lead at Cadence Design Systems
It is the best tool available for project planning and collaboration. It is very useful for meeting delivery requirements. This tool is great for enterprise scaling.
Share point integration
It’s expensive.
For the start-up segment, there should be a lighter version.
3. Workfront

Overall: 4.5/5
Easy of use: 4.5/5
Customer Service: 4.5/5
Price: Prices start at $20 per user per monthly
AtTask is now known as Workfront. However, I can assure you that the product’s quality and reliability have only improved. Workfront may look simple at first, but that’s the beauty. You can see a quick overview on all your projects on one dashboard that team members can update with the click a button. This makes it much easier to get everyone on board with project communication. ).
