ActiveCollab

Active Collab is great for small teams who want a web-based project management platform to help them on their day-to-day workflow tasks, billing, estimations, vendor assignments and even client communications. It is also great for agencies with users who are sometimes remotely working. Active Collab starts to show shortcomings when you have an immense amount of projects in the system (1000+), and, being a web-based platform, can sometimes experience downtime.

azendoo

I think Azendoo is suited well to small office tracking projects and tasks together. The shared projects/calendar use is helpful and can make work easier if everyone uses it in a similar manner. The ability to add things from other sources (Dropbox, Evernote, etc) does make it a useful platform because you can integrate other things into the app well. The visibility and shared spaces provide good accountability and follow up for work being done.

Pros

ActiveCollab

  • Great for project and task assignments, project workflow and communications.
  • Solid web-based platform that doesn't require software downloads, also includes great mobile platform.
  • Great reporting tools for managing billing, estimating, project workflow and other essential project details.
  • Allows for both the agency and its clients to interact on a single platform using role-specific permissions.

azendoo

  • Categories - Azendoo sorts to do lists into workspaces in a way that was relatively helpful.
  • Expandable - there are lots of ways to apply/implement azendoo that makes them useful and flexible to those after a productivity app.
  • Shareable - while no one at my office adopted it, the option to share tasks/progress was helpful.

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • As a web-based platform, sometimes things go down on their end and we lose access to our project management tool to the ire of all.
  • Project searching can be hit or miss, and filtered search often leaves out projects that should have shown.
  • Email alerts are often not as helpful as they seem.

azendoo

  • Not cost effective - I can get similar features for less.
  • Clunky - my phone/web apps did not always sync together perfectly.
  • Premium features in azendoo are some features I can get for free in other apps (Evernote, Asana, etc).

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

ActiveCollab has all the functions that are in these services, unlike them. Not everywhere there is a diagram of gantt. And somewhere the interface is very rewarded and in general looks obsolete.

azendoo

azendoo is a different tool, meant for a different project type. While it's a good program on its own, Evernote ultimately had all I needed as a single employee/student is the only person within my workspaces. I did not need to network and as such, I did not find it applicable. Later down the road in a shared office, I might feel differently.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • We began to finish projects on time, which undoubtedly will influence the return of customers

azendoo

  • I found myself frustrated at some of the costs to upgrade for features and found better outlets.
  • It wasn't totally necessary as I was the only user in the office.
  • It was useful, but it was also another thing to manage, and it was easier to just use Evernote's list feature in the end.
