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.

Easy Projects

In Lenovo we are more than 2000+ workers, so I can not say if the size company is a limitation to apply Easy Projects. I'm sure that EP could adapt for small-medium-large enterprise. For me, EP is perfectly suited to project manage, check time, resources, budget, deadlines, [etc.] so [it] is all that a project manager needs.

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.

Easy Projects

  • Easy Projects is great for project management. It allows you to assign users, set tasks and end dates, and keep it all together in one working file/job. It's a project manager's dream -- you can look inside and see exactly what is going on and any missed deadlines.
  • Easy Projects allows good customization of the fields. We have worked it so that in a job file, we can enter info about things specific to publication design -- size, file format, delivery location, etc. And we've been able to change these further over time as our needs change.
  • Easy Projects allows for archiving of completed jobs. You don't have to see them every time you log in, but it's great to be able to go back and search through completed jobs (even several years back) to see what was done last time, who was assigning, costs, etc.
  • Easy Projects allows you to pull reports and export them. This has proved helpful when we needed an overall log of jobs for a client or to pull a large number of costs.

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.

Easy Projects

  • Would love to see a way to create a project plan that is user friendly with various colours
  • More robust reporting that would provide easy view to budget by task by person
  • Would like to view various projects in different windows without going back and forth

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.

Easy Projects

An Easy Project is more powerful than the other two as it has a comprehensive platform to do the project management, task tracking, log hrs, resource loading check, project budget control, project cost estimate. Easy project is very powerful and has a lot of functions to meet different people's daily use.

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

Easy Projects

  • Better project coordination -- everything is all in one place and all team members can see/work off the same file.
  • Better job archiving -- we can look back on recurring jobs and see what was done months (or even years) previously
  • Helps us collect more info up front -- due to the fields project managers need to fill out, it steps us through the process of asking our clients all the right questions to make sure we have the info the design team needs
  • Negative impact is that because it is so integral to our work processes, there is a "learning curve" for new employees when they start. So we do have to spend more time training them and ensuring they are doing things correctly in the system.
  • Negative impact is that because of its lack of mobile and table-friendliness, if team members are out of the office, we can't use Easy Projects. We have to rely on email and sometimes, things can get missed that way.
