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.

Samepage

Samepage is well suited to situations:- when there is a need for ongoing collaboration between people- when these people lack tech skills- when there is a need for sharing and showing different kinds of mediaSamepage is less appropriate in situations (since there are better tools for those particular uses):- requiring more robust communication tools - when the objective is to execute a specific, finite task- when it is necessary a precise control of version history

Pros

  • 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.

  • Flexible: Samepage pages can assume a lot of formats to suit your needs
  • Easy to start: creating an account and starting a page is easy enough even for non-technology oriented people
  • Very attractive prices for the Pro plan

Cons

  • Search functionality - The search functionality is not so promising and I'm unable to find the tasks/items that I need even though I use the keywords that are in the ticket/comments -- Definitely something that needs to be improved.
  • No snooze functionality for tasks - If you work on multiple projects and deal with large number of tasks/tickets then things can get messy in your "workspace." An easy feature that can resolve this is to add snooze functionality. That way users can snooze tasks and optimize their workspace until when they really need to work on the task.
  • No ability to color code tasks - I'm a visual person and deal with a large number of tasks on ActiveCollab. Seeing my huge pile of tasks in the same color makes me lose track of things and slows me down. It would be very helpful for me if task color coding was added to Active Collab -- I'm sure there are others out there who benefit from this feature, too!

  • Samepage allows to upload and view PDF files, but not markup or comment on the pages inside them. Such feature would be extremely useful
  • There is room for usability improvements. The interface could use more contrast and color to create a better visual hierarchy.
  • Only three templates fail to show the beginner the true potential of the different formats pages can take on Samepage. There should be more templates and examples.

We started using Samepage's free trial and hadn't used it enough by the time it was over. But they were very gracious in extending our trial and giving us extra Pages to use to be sure it met our needs. I love when software companies act like real people, care about our success and realize we are working off deadlines. We are now a paid user.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Igloo has a free version and is easy to use but has few project management features. It also lacks audio and video calling functionality. Quip is easy to use and configure, but it lacks team calendar. Basecamp is great for project management but lacks the flexibility granted by Samepage's pages which can mix different kinds of content.

Return on Investment

  • Allows our team to stay organized and keep conversations on tasks.
  • The To-Do List email every morning helps me mentally prepare and know exactly what I should be doing as soon as I start work.
  • Powerful and useful integrations save lots of time (Google Drive, Slack, Dropbox, Zapier and more!).

  • We were able to be more effective in organizing events and research meetings
  • Samepage allowed the collaboration of different researchers on writing scientific articles
  • The pages in Samepage were used as a collaborative draft to create the final report of our research
