Airtable

Airtable is best suited for any size company. Especially companies with many departments working on many projects. Airtable is also a great tool for regularly scheduled meetings to keep track of things discussed, documents used, and assignments. We use it to plan any event we hold for our company and our annual company retreat. It really keeps things organized and is very easy to access across any device. Outside of financial spreadsheets, this really replaces any spreadsheet software, including—and perhaps especially—cloud-based shared spreadsheets.

Brightpod

Brightpod is best suited for someone that needs a project management software with recurring projects that can be templated. I'm not sure of a situation where this would be a good fit. There may be some features that are required that brightpod doesn't have like Gantt chart. Some teams may not want a Kanban style view

Pros

Airtable

  • Multiple viewing options, including self (individual) view and then view by project (also called a Base).
  • Completely customized columns with the ability to easily create many different data types.
  • The templates are really, really good.

Brightpod

  • A very visually pleasing layout of projects in a Kanban style view.
  • Keeps all communication on a task or project in one place, so that everyone is on the same page.
  • Great template system for recurring projects like onboarding or deploying a specific service that has a defined timeline.
  • Flexile recurring tasks.

Cons

Airtable

  • I would like to be able to sort items into groups without having to sort by specific columns. Just manually sort by click and drag.
  • I'd like to see all of the documents of each base stored collectively somewhere and cataloged in a document library.
  • I would like to see this base exportable as a Gant chart.

Brightpod

  • They really need a chat or instant messenger feature.
  • iOS app would be nice.
  • The option to remove the delay for sending messages on a task.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Airtable

We do use Social Studio and Sharepoint for other tasks, but for project planning across a wide variety of deliverables, there wasn't enough flexibility all the time. Asana was harder to use and get into and didn't provide an easy way to adjust views/sorts.

Brightpod

Brightpod was definitely the most attractive and we felt like it had the least amount of clutter. We hated how Wrike handled recurring tasks. ActiveCollab just seemed to have some complexity that we didn't need. The Brightpod developers are very responsive and were able to fix bugs quickly.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • Too early to tell. I hope that it will allow for both a task-specific view that helps people keep on schedule with projects and higher-level views that help with tactical and strategic planning.

Brightpod

  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Ability to have remote teams
