The Challenge

Before The Atom Group began working with Clarizen, it was using a simple online project management, task and time tracking software solution. The Atom Group quickly grew from a small niche agency into a full service development firm and the fast-paced growth brought with it a need for a more robust project management solution. Tom explains, "The firm needed to look for a new solution mostly because of performance needs. The solution we were using was built in such a way that it would take a lot of time to complete pretty basic tasks, so that just killed our adoption of it. We wanted to find something that was more responsive, offered more features and was easier to use".

The Solution

Tom briefly looked into other SaaS project management solutions but felt that other solutions had an outdated look and feel. As developers, The Atom Group was especially sensitive to the user-interface design, technological innovation and information flow.

"As developers we could look at Clarizen and appreciate that the technology was modern and the development behind it was really solid; Clarizen got our respect and won us over" says Tom.

Adoption of Clarizen's core project management tools was fast. With Clarizen, once the sales and marketing teams have closed a project, they brief the development team on the project's needs, timeline expectations and budget. Then the development team sets up the project within Clarizen and the project is launched. To some extent everyone in the organization is using Clarizen; however adoption of the Clarizen full feature set is a gradual process.

In the future, Tom intends for The Atom Group employees to broaden their Clarizen usage into budget management, resource management and roadmap usage. From a managerial perspective, Tom also plans on using Clarizen for gaining a comprehensive view of the entire organization and capacity planning. A year after choosing to work with Clarizen, Tom voices his satisfaction: "We chose to work with Clarizen because we think it's the most cutting- edge solution out there. I think a lot of the web 2.0 solutions that came out in the past few years have pretty and rounded edges but the features just aren't there. Clarizen is the only project management solution that has successfully married web 2.0 usability and an enterprise feature set, and that's why we're with Clarizen".
