ActiveCollab

ActiveCollab is great for planning and running projects, as well as for accounting for project costs and the company as a whole. Built-in tools perfectly solve these tasks. Also, the service is very convenient both for team work and for work itself. Control of the performance of specific tasks and subtasks is convenient

It is appropriate for IT teams where you can track the time. Not really appropriate for creative work, though

Pros

  • Daily notifications to the mail about upcoming tasks and expired, if any.
  • Preparation of financial reports and tasks for specific projects. You can form for individual tasks, employees and other criteria.
  • The availability of the gantt chart greatly simplifies the process of building the project, as it is an effective tool that helps to see the order of tasks to be performed.

Cons

  • I would like to supplement the mobile application with the functionality that the service has in the desktop version, for more efficient work.
  • Sorting projects and tasks is not always convenient, I would like to customize it for myself.

  • The reporting is a bit complicated.
  • There is some bug for the sync up between the Mac App and the web app. Sometimes the time is getting lost temporary which causes uncertainty for the contractors.

Alternatives Considered

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.

We started with Toggl, but it didn't work for us really

Return on Investment

  • Active Collab has helped us to move to a completely digital project management system, moving away from physical time sheets and assignments many years ago. Since then, the platform has grown very quickly and very adeptly, and that is why we continue to use it.
  • The Active Collab platform helps us with quick, easy access to our project management system, even for off-site users, vendors and clients.
  • Time tracking and profit analysis has been great to help us price new agency services and change requests.

  • Not really a positive or negative impact, it is just a handy tool to use.
