Elizabeth Walker

Associate Director, Programs

Intuitive product that helps us work together better

We’ve been using Inspire for a few years now and find it very helpful. As a nonprofit, we use it for all parts of our work, including, program development/management, communication campaigns, staff management, events, etc. It’s a fairly intuitive platform that everyone on our team is able to use. It was important to use, when selecting a PM tool, that it integrated with SF tasks so we would be able to see the full scope of our workload in one place. Inspire does this beautifully, taking advantage of native SF tools (like tasks and chatter, etc.) – it means less of a learning curve for people and easier adoption across the team – which means we can be more collaborative and transparent in all of our projects. The Inspire team is also big on listening to their customers and finding ways to improve their product.

Vice President of Business Systems and Processes

Clear winner for project collaboration

Within our global organization we manage complex projects across multiple users in different countries. Inspire Planner drives results with an intuitive interface and user-friendly features including integration with Salesforce Chatter. Focus less on project administration and more on team collaboration!

Marshall Bilodeau

Powerfully Simple

Our company is fairly new to Salesforce with a limited number of users running projects. However, as a certified PMP with more than 25 years of IT experience, I needed something to help me manage the multitude of Projects I’m involved with managing. I tried other products that were out there all with limited success. Basically I found them to be either too difficult to use for the end user or too expensive to fit our needs. That’s when I found “Inspire”.

For those PMs who’ve managed projects using either Excel or MS Project, Inspire is extremely intuitive and easy to set up. In fact, I had one of my existing projects up and running the very same day I installed Inspire and that was BEFORE I had even looked at the guidance Inspire provided!

As someone who has worked in IT most of their life and has dealt with various levels of tech support, I can tell you that the Inspire team is second to none. In addition, their sales team is extremely responsive and flexible. Not something you always see “after the sale”.

Everything and More

After an extensive search on AppExchange, my company went with Inspire Planner to use as a basic Project Management tool. After only a few months, this basic tool turned into one of our most powerful tools. We increased our project management tenfold and we continue to increase it with each new release. The people at Inspire Planner know their system well and know how to apply it even better. There have been a few limitations along the way, but most of them are resolved with the next release and the others come from ideas that we couldn’t even dream about before going with Inspire Planner. Overall it’s one of the best apps and it’s only getting better.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is how to install Inspire Planner trial in your Production or Sandbox:
https://help.inspireplanner.com/articles/Knowledge_Base/How-to-Install-Inspire-Planner-6-5-2020

Do all my Salesforce users require an Inspire Planner license?
No, users need a license if they need access to any data related to Inspire Planner. We recommend licenses for anyone who needs the following:

  1. Create or manage projects
  2. Will have project tasks assigned
  3. Need access to reports and dashboards

Non-Inspire Planner users can still be assigned project tasks, which will result in standard Salesforce tasks, but they won’t see all the details without a license. Such users will have very limited project collaboration capabilities.

For example, the users without a license won’t be able to participate in Chatter collaboration, access shared files, log time for their tasks, see task dependencies, or any custom fields related to Inspire Planner. That is why we strongly recommend all project collaborators have a license.

Do external contacts require an Inspire Planner license to view projects?
No, in order to view projects in our External Project Portal, your external contacts do not need Salesforce or Inspire Planner licenses. On top of being able to view your project in real-time, your external contacts can also update the status of their tasks, edit actual effort, and leave a comment for your project manager. Through this fully secure portal, you can share projects with an unlimited number of external contacts, while all your data stays in Salesforce.

If you need your external contacts to have full access to all the functionality of Inspire Planner, then you can use a paid Salesforce Community and purchase Inspire Planner licenses for such contacts
