Project management has been one of the turning points in business history. It helped businesses increase their productivity and use their resources to the fullest. This uprise led to the creation of different project management software intended to further help companies develop, organize, and get the best out of what they have. Here are top 5 project management tools of 2015.
Trello is the most basic project management tool out there. Its beauty is in its simplicity. It shows you what is happening, who is working on it and if it is being worked on. It is a great place for a beginning but it does have limited options. Trello can be an exquisite additional tool to your project management system. In the end, it all comes down on what you need: if you need some simple task management, great! If you need something more in-depth, you are going to have to look further.
I’ve worked on Basecamp and it proved to be a really good tool. It offers you to-do lists, file sharing, milestone management, time tracking, and a messaging system. This tool is an excellent for general project management. It is very intuitive and easy to use and none of your employees should have an issue with getting used to it. Even though the free version is fine, you will soon find a need to transfer to a paid version. But all in all, an excellent tool.
Tally Fox’s Cluster is newcomer from Europe. Cluster provides you with some excellent options like knowledge banks, content sharing and different social tools. I found it to be much more than just a regular project management tool. The knowledge bank option gives your employees an option of posting questions, answers and polls. If you are in any line of creative work, this tool is a definite must have.
Asana has been gaining a lot of popularity over the past few years. It proved to be a great collaborative workplace management tool. The reason it’s so popular is that it’s very nimble and you can set it up to your needs very easily. The only issue I had with Asana is that it can be quite tricky to set up to start with. This is the only draw back I found, but other than that it has served me as a good project management tool.
5. Bitrix 24
Bitrix 24 is an excellent tool. It has a great social environment feel in a way that it provides you with profiles, instant messaging, liking, and commenting. Other than that, it has an excellent CRM and great time management options. One of the best things about Bitrix is that it’s so easy to get used to it. It will take you and your employees absolutely no time to learn how to set up groups and post files. It’s only a matter of seconds!
