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.

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

  • It is confusing when a review is made, before buying the product.
  • It lacks animation and pleasant forms for the user.
  • Does not allow effective communication when activities are reported. Since it does not provide a direct message chat.
  • The reports that are generated are basic, they do not have personalization characteristics.

  • 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

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.

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

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