Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Planful reviews

I love the people that I work with mostly, and the system is pretty amazing. I can easily geek out about it. Dynamic Reports are excellent, user friendly and add great value! The ease of setting up permissions and security is wonderful, and Planful does it's best to continue to make changes to their system to

Implemented this software solution at my office. It was less expensive than some of the other providers, and we expected the product to perform as such. There are some drawbacks to the product, but I think these are in-line with the price.

Host Analytics Dynamic Planning has been the most flexible, dynamic and user-friendly analytical tool I have ever used in my 30+ year's career. Their customer support is second to none, and has always been there to solve any issues we encounter. The platform is ever-changing, based on challenges faced by and recommendations made by their customers. Each time operations requests a new or different way to analyze our market conditions, financial results, or forecasted projections, our department can produce their requests quickly and in real-time.

One of the most useful features is managing projects and tracking the projects which are very convenient and useful for the companies.

- Abhishek P. AWS CLoud Intern

I have started to use pivotal tracker to manage the project I work on. It really help me to follow agile process and complete the project within the deadline. Easy to adopt and learn for beginners as well. Adding images to the task is really helpful. Strong integration to downstream apps.

Pros & cons

Planful

Pros
OVerall is a great tool for the ease of standardizing and managing our reports
Great experience for me
We have a dedicated business systems resource on our team who helps a lot
Can include links to images of transaction source documents, providing great transparency in reporting
Spotlight for Excel add in to develop custom, refreshable reports is a great help
I honestly think it's great, particular for users whose current ERP systems are lacking in the core FP&A functionalities Planful provides."

Cons
A data pull is not immediate and can cause some frustration if data is not pulled 100% accurately the first time
The interface is pretty dated
I also mainly use chrome as my browser and there seems to be a lag time when scrolling in a template which is a bit of a pain
We have also transformed to a rolling forecast using modeling, so that the annual budgets required by lenders comes from the forecasts, and is no longer a time-consuming annual task
The new row sets are difficult to get to the exact detail and adjusting cold width can't be done in a cluster in chrome."

Pivotal Tracker

Pros
Pivotal tracker is very reliable and the features which they provide well thought
It is good for small teams who want to use a project tracking tool without any prior knowledge of project management
Overall this the best software for little teams and for startups to start flow from scratch
I really like how well Pivotal Tracker made following a scrum approach when developing software
Assuming one is already familiar with Scrum, creating a backlog by writing user stories, and then grooming them into the current sprint was fantastic
I also really appreciated the sprint analysis."

Cons
The problem that I have with Pivotal is that its success in the coding side of the business led to its adoption across the board in all our business processes
Here's where the trouble started
Its frustrating to only be able to add 3 columns to a project
It has forced us to do a lot of "hacky" customization to make it support our processes
As the owner unless you clear the cache
I've tried to report these issues to their customer service team but they blame it on "network issues on my end
It is hard to view all the tasks that I am assigned."
