  • Awesome comparision. Thank you for this wholesome list. Do you have a chart for the ones which do take care of project management partially but also have time tracking, expense and document management?

    Wrike is completely fantastic. We had such a bad system before. This is genuinely liberating.

  • Hi , Great comparison with extensive list of tools. But I would like to suggest SwiftPPM from Digite, a comprehensive program and project portfolio management solution for an organization. Its rich set of features including task, defect, issue, timesheet, custom reports and many others along with wide integration capability have proved it to be the most worthy among various PM tool.

  • Hi, i have been using Wrike for more than 5 years and its great. The only issue i found with it was the Gantt Charts. For my international teams I had to shift to 5pm web. Has anyone faced the same problem.......

  • commented on ProofHub
    Proofhub is a remarkable tool to plan, organize and deliver the work effectively. With this tool, I can easily share files, assign tasks, define responsibilities, set deadlines, hold discussions, create notes and keep track of everything in seconds. It is easy to use and does not add to the already built pressure on the team. The dashboard is so clean and organized, that help me to easily focus on my work and get the best done on time. Also the support team is always on their toes, listening to users queries and feedback. And the best thing is that with different kinds of plans available, there is something for everyone in Proofhub. Highly recommended!

    Nodoubt, Basecamp is good but it lacks important features like time tracking, private messages and integration with google. Have you tried proofhub? Features like time tracking, casper (hidden) mode, to-do's, discussions make it awesome. So, you don't miss anything.

  • Hi, this list is missing another great online project management tool, called Squish - - it has a full-featured 60 day trial and their pricing is pretty good.

  • I miss Easy Redmine here: It is an amazing Redmine fork, user friendly, with many useful plugins like budget planning, help desk, resource management etc. Do you know that?
