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.

Teamwork Projects

If you are looking for something more than Trello, and want to avoid MS Projects or Basecamp, Teamwork would be a great fit. Also, if you don't need project/industry-specific capabilities (e.g. web development, programming, etc.) teamwork is a solid performer. I would guess it is ideally suited for smaller teams and SMBs, but maybe not enough of a platform for large enterprises.

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.

  • Milestone and Task management is an area where Teamwork Projects has really helped us. Tasks lists correspond to Milestones and the creation of subtasks is seamless. The ability to created threaded conversations within the Task itself is also beneficial. Finally, time tracking for specific Tasks couldn't be easier.
  • Support for Teamwork projects is always provided in a very timely manner. Any time I have needed to email their support, I have received very prompt replies. Whether my inquiry has been answered or not, it's always nice to be acknowledged and know that your questions are being heard.
  • In my experience with the API, I have found it to be very easy to use and the documentation provided from Teamwork Projects is excellent.

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!

  • Mobile app needs further development. It lacks a lot of things that other task-apps have. The mobile app definitely needs improvement
  • Price - it's a little expensive, especially for micro businesses. It's not outrageous but the price is high
  • Daily email reporting -- could get better, it lacks a lot of information I would like to see

We are already at an annual contract, and have been for the past 5 years; so far the system has delivered, and our personal is already trained in it. A major overhaul of our entire infrastructure (as in moving everything to a single, unified platform) might change the current continuity of Teamwork Projects on our organization, but that's not feasible in the near future.

The UI is clear, well laid out and very user friendly.The authors of the Teamwork Projects product have managd to cram a lot of detail into a small real estate without over-burdening the user.Adoption by my users has been extremely rapid with very little re-familiarisation required once they've got going.I do like the fact that there is an element of first-time user support embedded within the application. It means that I can point users to a sign-up page and spend very little time with them thereart

The support service provided by Teamwork is excellent, and one of the best I've experienced. This is for the following reasons:(1) The speed at which they respond to queries I raise(2) The depth of understanding they have of the product(3) The way in which they are able to understand my questions without needing me to re-explain(4) The quality of the documentation available online(5) The openness they express about current issues and downtime

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.

We didn't like Asana. We thought it wasn't user-friendly at all and our team did not adapt to Asana. Some of us were not even using it because of how complex it was. We chose Teamwork and stayed with it because it was very user-friendly and it has everything our team needed.

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!).
