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.

Sciforma

Yes, definitely. We wanted a flexible but robust software and Sciforma seemed to be the best fit

Pros

  • Very nice interface for all user roles in the system.
  • Effective notification of pending tasks and optimal management of the equipment.
  • Organized work flow, productive tasks and correct execution.
  • Creation of filters to better locate artifacts for daily use.

  • Flexible: I believe it is the best part. The software is completely and especially designed for our needs.
  • Easy to use: any configuration can be done either by us or Sciforma. At first, we would only use the project extension. After a year, we decided to add more users and roll-out time tracking. We did the configuration by ourselves and didn’t need Sciforma’s help. It was pretty easy, even without having a dedicated developer.
  • They have a lot of features: you can start as small as you want and always get more features . This was our case and we haven’t been limited so far.
  • They are methodology agnostic: We use both Agile and Waterfall and it’s great to see it all rolls up to the portfolio level.

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.

  • Some bugs when the new version was released. But they were very quickly fixed, the Sciforma team is reactive and is always ready to help.

Alternatives Considered

Certainly, each of them has a particular advantage, which in the end makes it unique. ActiveCollab also belongs to a group of platforms created to be represented in particular, its way of project management is superior to JIRA or Trello. With this software, the work is more controlled and organized.

We were looking at vendors but they didn't meet our expectations and weren't flexible enough.

Return on Investment

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

  • It’s hard to evaluate our ROI. I can say though that:
  • More efficiency, we do not lose time looking for documents in different places anymore. Everything is gathered in one place.
  • Reports are amazing and quick to create.
  • As a project manager, I can better manage my project and my resources. It helps me a lot to prioritize what needs to be done and gives me the bigger picture.
