Here at Less Meeting, we’re no strangers to the project management world. Many of us are former PM’s and many of our users are PM’s trying to find better ways to manage their always growing workload.
Along the way, we’ve picked up a few tips from users who are using software to help maximize their efficiency.
Here are our top 3 Project Management Tools:
Starting at $20 per month, Basecamp is one of the most common project management tools used by Less Meeting users and is built upon the principle of simplicity.
Jason Fried (co-founder of Basecamp & 37Signals) follows the philosophy of “less is less” and allows users to form discussions, add to-do lists & files, manage calendars and keep track of projects in one very easy to use interface.
If you are looking for something easy to use without over complicating your current process, this is your tool.
Starting at $24 a month per user (for a yearly subscription), Liquid Planner is less complex than Microsoft Projects, integrates with Salesforce.com, and includes some convenient features that many other tools are missing (like analytics and reporting):
- Free training and support
- Phone and tablet applications
Starting at $25 for 5 team members, users can share files, create group discussions, assign tasks, collaborate on writing, set reminders, track time, and manage tickets & milestones.
ActiveCollab has a great mix of straightforward features, but also has additional features for teams that tend to do a lot of writing / collaborating.
