Brightpod

I like Brightpod. We used their previous product, DeskAway, which we actually liked a bit more for our needs (cannot remember why now as we've found workarounds over the last three years!). It is good for us, and we need to organize multiple task lists for multiple clients. We need to be able to monitor task progression and completion, as well as to track time by resource. We need to prioritize and focus our resources, and we need to review time tracking/performance reports. All possible in Brightpod. We especially like the access we can give to clients, which is on a task list basis, so they can see some task lists in their pod but not others, which allows us to not overwhelm them with unnecessary info, but at the same time, accomplish the detailed tracking we need.

Kure

New software implementation as a recent project the Kure app enabled us to delegate out the various steps and processes and create an accountability program for those who were assigned to their tasks. Anything new being introduced within a company requires a lot of buy-in from the team and proper planning to make sure things are rolled out properly. Using the Kure app helped put the vision together for all to see what the end goal was. With our staff working in other states and not able to sit in a conference room in person together this tool created an easy way to communicate with one another.

Brightpod is easy to use. We have several levels of users, some are from outside the USA and some are here. We needed something that could be used by programmers, coders, technical project managers, marketing individuals, and administrators. We get a thumbs up from all these user types. The system is hardly ever down, so we are able to use 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Kure

Trello didn't allow us to assign as many tasks or upload images as easily as Kure. The cards in which you create are small so it's hard to put as much detail on those in order to completely communicate with the team. The organization of the cards got a little overwhelming and cumbersome
