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.

I know it works well for IT but not sure how it would work for construction. I think construction has a different set of needs.

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.

  • Nothing significant. Maybe could be faster at times but I'm not sure if that is our own internet connection.

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.

  • Most tools like this are a lot better than the desktop tools that everyone used to use because it is a central system that gives visibility across all the projects.

  • More projects are being completed according to expectations.
