Clarizen At A Glance

Good: Robust features for tracking every task and milestone of a critical project.
Bad: Not intended for companies that need a lightweight project management tool.
Bottom Line: All-in-one task-tracking and resource-management solution for analyzing every aspect of an ongoing or future project.

Product Overview

Clarizen’s highly configurable solutions enable business agility so project managers can manage their entire work lifecycle. With Clarizen, they can connect the dots between how their executives kick off business initiatives; how their orgs create plans to support company goals; and how their employees collaborate to execute those objectives.


Here, we’ve selected the top five features of Clarizen:

1. Automated Workflow Management: Users automate, repeat and scale how they create processes and streamline workflows. They gain new efficiencies as they offload administrative tasks and spend more time doing work that matters.

2. Capacity Planning and Resource Management: Managers get full visibility into all their resource demands, available capacity, schedules and tasks along with the planning tools to evaluate “what-if” scenarios and make real-time updates to fully utilize their resources without overcommitting.

3. Project and Portfolio Optimization: There are so many projects that one team can take on, given resource and spending constraints. Clarizen aligns projects to business objectives so you can focus and make the best use of your time and budget.

4. Project Financial Management: The software helps prevent any surprises and keep financial metrics in check with real-time visibility and up-to-date project financials. Managers meet project objectives and stakeholder expectations, whether it’s budget, contracted revenue, ongoing health or planned benefits and ROI.

5. Reports and Dashboards: All levels of the organization are empowered with 360-degree real-time information so they can make immediate data-based decisions. They save time using the built-in wizard to automatically produce customer-facing presentations with project data in their own branded template.
