Third Place For RationalPlan At 2012 Project Management Election

By | November 9th, 2012|Awards, Contests, News, RationalPlan|1 Comment

The project management provider RationalPlan obtained the third place at Capterra’s Project Management Election 2012. RationalPlan has been nominated as being one of the 55 contending project management software providers. These 55 nominees were chosen from a few hundreds of software solutions.

Providers were split into two:

  • The Traditionalists – those who identified a Traditional/Phased-Approach as the methodology that best fits their software
  • The Contemporaries – those who identified Agile or another methodology as the best fit (as well as those who indicated their solution is tailored to multiple methodologies)

The election started on October 9th and had four rounds, each round for a duration of one week. The candidate pool was narrowed down at the end of each one-week voting “round” based on which candidates had the most votes. Project managers could vote their preferred project management solution just once every day during the entire campaign.

After the first round we were classified as one of the first 10 players from The Traditionalists category so we were validated to enter the next round. The election continued with Round 2 where only the first 3 products from each category went to next round. Round 2 ended on October 22 when RationalPlan was chose as one of the six best project management software providers. Many were and few remained. After Round 3 which ended on October 29 only the best project management product from each category went to final round. RationalPlan was classified on third place.

“We received a great support and a lot of votes from our users that allowed us to obtain this place. The community was very active on social media like Twitter, Google Plus and especially on RationalPlan Facebook page. We thank all those that voted RationalPlan as their preferred project management software”, says Gabriel Toader, CEO at Stand By Soft. (more…)
