ActiveCollab

Intuitive and flexible to use all kinds of extension components. Simple and pleasant, it has amazing features and is highly secure.When they lack animation and explosiveness at the user level, it expires due to the rich user experiences offered by today's website.ActiveCollab is a safe investment when talking about dynamics and production in projects, also in the management of the fair of the working group.

We use Atlassian JIRA for development projects. It seems to work well for us for this. We run around 50 projects at any one time in the system. Users don't typically need any specialized training as it is pretty intuitive to work with. We have it integrated with Active Directory for credential and user management. It would probably be a good idea to determine just how many projects and how many items you can reasonably manage.

Pros

ActiveCollab

  • 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.

  • It's a great way to segment projects
  • It's a great way to track issues by project
  • It's a great way to capture all the critical attributes of a request being made of engineering

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • 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.

JIRA

  • The 10mb attachment limitation is sometimes annoying especially if you attach video
  • It would be cool if there was tight(er) and easy (easier) integration with things like Zendesk, SharePoint and Yammer, I am not sure that we have actually invested the effort to do this integration but i am sure if it was easy as flipping a switch it would have been done.
  • Sometimes the application misbehaves, I can't tell if this is infrastructure or what, usually this occurs when I am in a browser other than Chrome
  • I am not aware of a mobile app for it but if there is one that would be cool

I do not make decisions at my new company, so it's out of my hands. I will say that we're in dire need of a new Project Tracking suite, but I'm not sure how interested they'd be in building something from the ground up. But, if discussions turn to blowing up our current solution and going in another direction, I will be recommending JIRA, and offering to take lead in it's implementation.

Atlassian's support is lake any other support of a big company, slow and demanding. Initial consultant assigned to look at your issue doesn't have too much knowledge and he/she may waste your time until it is escalated and people with more knowledge about the system will take a look at the problem and provide a fix/workaround.

Take your time implementing Jira. Make sure you understand how you want to handle your projects and workflows. Investing more time in the implementation can pay off in a long run. It basically took us 5 days to define and implement correctly, but that meant smooth sailing later on.

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.

JIRA

What appealed to us with JIRA at first sight is pricing per user. It may sound funny, but for us this was better than pricing per number of projects. Most of our projects are ongoing. Once an initial development is done, we continue maintaining the software and keep track of tasks. So we have a steady number of people but are not sure about the number of projects we might have.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

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

JIRA

  • Better communication between development and support tiers. - Positive
  • ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Positive
  • Consolidation of spreadsheets, emails, word docs, etc. That we used before JIRA to track incidents and initiatives. - Positive
  • Once the business flow is formalized through a tool such as JIRA, corporate politics rears it's head angrier than ever. - Negative, though not a fault of the JIRA solution singularly.
