ActiveCollab

Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy.2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
it retains what you wrote.4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page.5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etcScenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that.2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing3) It did not work well for larger teams4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

Bitrix24

Bitrix24 is well suited for any organization that needs a project management tool that can grow with them. I cannot stress this enough! This software works for startups and large organizations! That's important considering the learning curve, and the amount of time that it takes to set up a company-wide software. The software is set up to support all internal teams, as well as have folders/tasks specifically for dedicated teams (ie- executives, marketing, etc). The approvals process also helps managers to track each step of the way.Bitrix24 may not be well suited for an organization that is looking for a quick-to-use, temporary project management solution. Its layout is very detailed and requires a commitment to not only learn how to use but to manage. This may not be great for someone who is looking solely for a task manager.

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.

Bitrix24

  • Huge opportunities for customization, integration with other services. Easy search for solutions to setup questions.
  • The ability to write letters directly from the system with the help of a binding for working mail.
  • The presence of an application for Android. This helps to get access anywhere.
Oleg Galimov | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • Individual comments cannot be linked to. This makes it more difficult to reference a comment or question.
  • Unnecessary features cannot be turned off. Since we use it primarily for communication, it would be ideal to turn off tasks etc. that are not needed or be able to move discussions as the first screen.
  • There isn't an easy way to set up different projects under the same client.
Nancy Ross | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitrix24

  • Malfunctions
  • System impediments of leads
  • Technical support is not competent
  • No sync with mobile app
  • Confusing interface takes time to sort out
  • For the sales department, the system is badly sharpened - managers do not need to enter information in 2-3 clicks

The support team is responsive to requests and their annual support fees are reasonable. Honestly, we don't have to contact them much. Updates happen automatically and the platform is very solid and does not require a lot of support. Documentation is good and the platform is easy to learn.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

I have used multiple project management platforms such as ActiveCollab, JIRA, Trello, etc. Trello has great visualization with their (Kanban Board) board system and support drag and drop functionality for managing tasks. ActiveCollab, however, does not have the fancy visualization, but is very powerful when it comes to ticketing, task management, task delegation, time tracking, etc.

Bitrix24

Bitrix stacks up beautifully and goes beyond others in certain features. Just like any other software it has its own pros and cons but overall is an excellent software to work on if it can satisfy majority of your needs. Overall it can do very well with just a few minor improvements and more exposure in the corporate world.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • It has saved us a TON of money (literally thousands) in project management software.
  • It has helped us gain clients because we can show them the template of what they will see and give them access to it. When others don't have software that does this.
  • Positive impact on ROI based on the time it's saving compared to our previous PM software.
Chris Lesner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitrix24

  • Positive impact: very easy and fast deployment on cloud version. Very low investment to set up and start to use. Chance to test the product before start paying to use it.
  • Positive impact: ease of use and intuitive system (no need to train users to perform basic tasks). People started to obtain benefits very quickly.
  • Positive impact: free version up to 12 users/low price for additional users and/or other paid packages.
