We selected the following three Project Management Softwares based on both their transparency on price and user friendliness. We recently switched from a paid Project Management Software to a free one and couldn’t be happier! Not only are we happy – and surprised – by the $0 fee, but really like the overall feel of the platform and how easy it is to use. We are getting the most out of it and we wanted to pass on this knowledge to you. Granted, getting an Enterprise package for free is basically impossible, but here are some economical options.
WARNING: BIASED OPINION because this is the project management software we currently use and fell in love with. Freedcamp is extremely easy to set up and start using. Overall, the software is very intuitive-except when trying to add a new user to a project; I am still trying to figure out how to do this. What sets Freedcamp apart from all the other project management softwares is its FREE option for unlimited users, projects, tasks, and storage. The free option offers Tasks to assign work and set both priority and deadlines, Files to access and share all project related files, Wall for easy communication within a project, Calendar for all important events within a project and Time, to track time spent on each task. The Enterprise option is $16.99 per user and offers priority Support, a Private Cloud for storage, White Label to customize with your company’s branding, and Daily Backups (free option does not offer backups). They currently have a 14-day trial!
It is easy to set up an account and you can start managing projects and assigning tasks right away. Basecamp is all about integrating daily tools to its platform. The To-Do list feature makes task delegation fast, clear, and fast. The Message Board allows for transparent communication and keeps all conversations about a certain topic together in a single page. Schedules, which is more like a Calendar, allows all users to be aware of and prepared for important project dates. Documents & File Storage is just that, similar to what DropBox offers. These are some of the key and most important features Basecamp has to offer, but what really distinguishes it from other Project Management Software is its pricing scheme. Basecamp charges a flat fee of $99/month for unlimited users, unlimited space, all Basecamp features, AND 500GB of file storage. They even have a 30-day trial and all IT maintenance and updates are completed by their team.
Monday Enterprise package offers unlimited storage (base feature in other PMSs) and activity log (to track who changed what). The Calendar is also a basic feature; however, Time Tracking is only offered in the Enterprise package. With the paid package you can take advantage of up to 50 integrations (Basecamp did not mention a limitation on these), offers extra security, one–on-one training, and a Personal Customer Success Manager. We did not have a chance to actually use this software, however, we can guess it has a steep learning curve as it offers one-on-one training- something that is not feature on Basecamp or Freedcamp (they really are easy to learn!). Monday chargers per group of users, $118 for 5 and up to $4798 for 200 for the year.
Let us know if you end up using any of these Project Management Softwares, we’s love to hear about your experience.
