Bottom Line

This company believes clarity in communication and the focus and peace of mind that’s achieved when teams are empowered to manage their work with real-time visibility and collaborate across the enterprise or zen are the core components of successful projects.

Clarizen provides a fully comprehensive task management platform with additional features for communication across your entire enterprise. Limited access users can be added for a lower cost (see pricing details below), and client-facing management is a breeze. We were not impressed with the confusion that comes with customizing reporting, versions, and user licenses. Clarizen needs to completely re-design their mobile applications.

As with any enterprise-level task management solution, the onboarding process for Clarizen is no small task, and honestly, we were quite frustrated by the end of our testing with this platform. Be prepared to utilize the very helpful staff for training sessions.

The reporting options for this application stood out to us. They have a clear method for tracking expenses, resource allocation, task progress, and they even offer customizable data reporting. Clarizen’s clients unanimously confirmed that Clarizen helped them improve communication and avoided repeating the same task.

This tool has grown to essentially be an enterprise-only solution, and is not optimally priced or organized for smaller teams who prefer a more user-based approach such as ClickUp or Asana.

    Clarizen is actually a decent tool that offers a full set of features. If you take the time and actually go through their documentation youll notice theres more than meets the eye. Anything not directly within clarizen itself can be fixed with a simple API hookup. All good things come at a cost!

    Decent for large companies because they are the only ones who can afford them.

    + PROS: Fast and very few bugs. Not complicated and allows you to add you company logo.
    - CONS: Price! Clarizen is very expensive. My team also had a hard time searching for things.

    It seems that Clarizen can only work if you meet their needs!! NOT what a platform should be. Their UI is quite outdated in my opinion and gives me a Windows ME feel…..

    + PROS: they have room for improvement?

    Useful but can be very complicated

    + PROS: Helps us get the job done, manage workload, and keep track of tasks and time.
    - CONS: You'll need to plan for a few training sessions when introducing new employees to Clarizen; it's not intuitive and takes a while to learn. It's not the easiest software to use and has a bit of a learning curve. There are so many aspects to it (it's so complicated) that it can take a long time to learn. The interface looks cluttered and complicated.

    We are a start up and Clarizen did not make sense for us for multiple reasons. Price was way too high, design wasn’t what we needed, and it was full of too many features we didn’t need. Not a terrible product but not for us.

    + PROS: Makes sense for a big company. The site is very fast and works properly.
    - CONS: The Design is not what awe wanted and isn't intuitive. The price is also way out of our budget. I don't see this being the choice for any small/midsize companies.

    My issue with clarizen is mostly related to pricing. They simply offer the same customizable options that you can find with any software while charging a deluxe rate.

    + PROS: Google chrome extension, app integrations
    - CONS: Cost

    Clarizen is extremely powerful and offers Enterprise-grade security for a reasonable price, however, new tools are surfacing which offer similar features at a fraction of the cost.

    + PROS: Collaboration-friendly design, great support
    - CONS: Dated layout, expensive
