ConceptDraw PROJECT

Getting started - using the Gantt chart to enter tasks in any order and then using those tasks to initially define a MindMap to further explore alternative dependencies. The alternative works better when initiating a project with significant unknowns.

MeisterTask

The best part about Meistertask is how dead simple it is, while still absolutely nailing what it needs to really get right. Meistertask makes task management dead simple for me and keeps the detail out of the way unless I specifically need it.

Pros

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Integration with ConceptDraw Mindmap makes work breakdown very easy.
  • We have cross-functional teams where team members often work on different projects in parallel. The multi project management feature has been a blessing over these years.
  • Another import feature is the availability of many different predefined report generation templates that made it very easy to communicate different aspects of the project to different stakeholders.

MeisterTask

  • The learning curve is really short compared to other software that is related to this.
  • It is very easy to manage several projects at the same time, thus saving time in the work process.
  • Managing the elements of the list is very comfortable since its interface allows everything to work in an orderly manner based on what I want to put as important for me.
  • It has versions that are adapted to any type of company or if you want to give a personal use because it also has an option based on what you want to do with MeisterTask.

Cons

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Non-intuitive keyboard shortcuts
  • No advanced reporting or estimates

MeisterTask

  • Some detailed task definitions may be difficult to implement.
  • Those using traditional project tools may find MeisterTask a little bit superficial and scattered.
  • Often you may need additional tools to complete the inefficiencies of Kanban board (no analytics for team performance, lack of time planning, etc.).
  • Reports and analytics are limited.

Alternatives Considered

ConceptDraw PROJECT

ConceptDraw has a much simpler licensing and pricing model. Perpetual license and ability to use in offline mode was an important criteria for us. Perfect bundle for small and medium business.

MeisterTask

We have tried a lot of tools and we still use quite a lot, but only MeisterTask is the one we could not replace with any others. We use some other software for our personal planning, but when it comes to professional project management and collaboration, we simply choose MeisterTask.

Return on Investment

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Inexpensive way to present a professional project plan when needed

MeisterTask

  • MeisterTask saves me a lot of time in communicating about various tasks of a project. The activity chat feature lets me communicate with other members of my team without having to be in the same location as them, and increasing our productivity.
  • It has caused me to use some additional time though, and create a Gantt chart myself instead of being able to use a built-in feature.
  • MeisterTask is great for letting us organize and keep track of all aspects of a project and make sure each one gets done by its respective due date.
